Eleventh Year
OFFICIALLY
RECEIVED
Prince Henry Welcomed In
Washington Wilh Enthusiasm.
White  House   Ablaze  With
Illuminations as Never
Before.
Washington, Feb.21.���Prince Henry
:irriveil at tho Qei man embassy shortly
after 11 o'olock, the approach of the
party being announced by the shrill
notes of cavalry bugles. The Prince
occupied a carriage with Admiral
Evans, while back of them followed
the carriages of the distinguished
naval and military oflieers of Prince
Henrj 's suite and members of the
German embassy.
A battalion of engineers occupied
the avenue immediatly fronting the
embassy. As the party came into
sight, the band broke into "My
Country, 'Tie of Thee." Over the
embassy floated a flag which bas never
been seen in Washington before, the
personal flag of the Imperial family of
Germany. The Prince and his party
laid aside tbeir wraps and the confusion of arrival gave way to the calm
dignity with which affairs about the
Prince are conducted. The entire first
rluor of the embassy bad heen placed
at the disposal of the prince and his
personal stuff and soon the drawing
room, the smoking, room and the ambassador's study had their groups of
guests and officials. Prince Henry had
as his private study, the Japanese
room with its rich oriental furnishings and curios. The main body of
the prince's staff, after the call at tbe
White Bouse, proceeded to the new
Williard hutel where quarters covering the entire first floor were at tbeir
disposal.
Tremendous cheering from the
crowds at 11.40 announced the coming
of the president to the embassy, to
return the call of Prince Henry. The
president drove an open landau with
Col. Bingham, his naval aide.^Commander Bowles following in a
carriage.
Tbe president and the prince remained together for about ten minutes,
being left alone at first and later being joined by the ambassador when
their personal gieetings wero completed. There was no exchange of formal
addresses during the visit which was
strictly one of official etiquette
although it gave opportunity for expressions of mutual cordiality and
good will between the two nations.
The dinner given to Prince Henry
by President Roosevelt at the White
House tonight closed the honors
bestowed on tbe royal visitor by
official Washington today. The affair
was on an elaborate scale and brought
together a most distinugished company. To accommodate the large
number of guests, the dinner table
was set in the east room, the decorations of wnich were on the most mag-
nicfient scale ever attempted. An
effective and new feature of the decorations was thu electric light designs
and illumination. In tbe mirrors and
windows, the electric light designs
were in stars and anchors, emblematic
of Prince Henry's duties as a sailor.
The general effect of these decorations on the dining room was pink
and white. Music was furnished by
the marine band, which played a
number. of German and American
patrotic airs. Snortly before the clock
stiuck 8, Prince Henry arrived with
Admiral Evans, United States navy,
in an open carriage. As they left
the embassy, a large crowd had given
them a warm greeting and they were
accorded a hearty reception by the
large number of people who had sb
sembled aiound tbe port cochero of the
White House, were the guests assembled The dinner was Bet for S
o'clock and when that hour arrived,
the guests passed through the blue
room, where the presentations were
made and thence to the east room.
1'reident Roosevelt sat at tho bead
of the table with the prince on bis
right. On his left waB Lord Panuce
fote, the British ambassador. On thc
right of the prince was Count Cassini,
the Russian ambassador, while to the
left of Lord Pauncefote was the Mexican ambassador.   Opposite to the pres
right was Dr. Von Holleben, the German ambassaor, and to bis left the
Frenoh ambassdor. To the right of the
German ambassador was the Italian
ambassador, and to lhe left of the
French ambassador was Chief Justice
Fuller.
During the dinner, the president
proposed the health of the German
Emperor and tbe German people saying: "We admire their great past and
great present and we wisb them alt
possible success in the future. May
tbe bonds of friendship between the
two people ever grow stronger."
The president also proposed the
health of Our Gneat, Prince Henry of
Prussia, in these words: "In the
nnitkjof the American people I greet
and extend to you our warmest welcome and the assuranco of our heatiest
good will."
Following the toast of the president
to the German emperor, Prince Henry
arose and addresed himself to the
president, proposed a toast to nimself
and the people of the United States,
accompanying it with an expression of
good will and hopes for tbe continuation of triendly relations between tbe
German and American nations. Then
followed Mr. Roosevelt's toast to
Piinee Henry.

Martin Claims Seat of Leader of Opposition
and Curtis Attempts to Remove
Him From It.
Resolution of House Finally Assigned All
Members to Seats Occupied by
Them Last Session.
(SPECIAL TU THE MINER.)
Victoria, Feb.24.���Crowded galleries
witnessed tcday oue of the most disgraceful scenes in the history of the
legislature of British Columbia, when
members resorted to personal violence
to ocenpy one ot the chairs.
Tbe trouble all arose out of the fact
that Hon, Joseph Martin, now regarded as a supporter of the government,
as he has declared himself in interviews, is no longer leader of the opposition, and also to the fact that
Hon. Richard McBride iB cow leader
of an opposition of sixteen. The latter*
held their leader entitled to tbe seat
of tbe leader of the opposition while
Martin contended that be was. The
altercation began before the Speaker
took the chair, Martin calling McBride, who had takeu the seat,a bully
and a blaokguard. The latter pointed
out that the desk had been placed
there by the Sergcant-at-arms and
his name was on it. Martin stood
behind McBride's chair and as soon aB
the latter arose when prayers were
being read, slipped in behind him in
front of tbe chair. Bon.Smith Curtis,
who Bat next to McBride, sought to
jerk tbe chair from Martin and pushed
his own forward for McBride. As soon
as prayers concluded Martin dropped
into the chair and Curtis grabbed him
and pushed the chair baok. Mr. Gilmour, of Vancouver, and Mr.Molnnee,
of Soutb Nanaimo, jumped on Curtis
and held his arms while Ilawthome-
thewaite, of Nanaimo, came to the assistance of Curtis.
Finally Martin got the chair, while
McBride perched himself on the desk.
Thus matters stood all afternoon while
a bitter add noisy   debate was carried
| on on the question of who was entitled to the seat. The government
refrained, with the exception of Prentice, irom taking any part or in asserting authority. Finally Mr. Speaker
Pooley refused to rule in the mutter,
and going to the whole house, a resolution was offered by Meloncb that
members should occupy the seats held
by them last session and carried on a
straight party division of 19 to 10.
The scrap between Martin and
Curtis was greeted with cries of
"shame" and "put Martin^out" from
packed galleries.
ANOTHER ACCOUNT.
Victoria, Feb. 24.���There was a disgraceful scene in the provincial legislature, this afternoon, Richard McBride, leader of the opposition, Jos.
Martin, leader of tbe party formerly
tbe opposition but wbi:h voted with
tho government last session, and
Smith Curtis, formerly Martin ����� first
lieutenant, ongaging in what narrowly aveited being a fist fight. It was
over the seat in the house usually
allotted to thc leader of the opposition.
McBrido took it when he entered the
chamber and when Martin arrived
there was a wordy war. McBride held
the seat until the chaplain arose to
read thn prayers. The new leader of
tho opposition rose also and Martin
slipped into the chair. Smith Curtis
threw him back aud Martin's followers sprang forward. It oame within
an aco of being a fist fight but resulted
in a war of words. The discussion
lasting all afternoon. Finally by
motion the members wore ordered to
take tbeir old seats and the house adjourned till tomorrow.
REACHING FOR SAN FRANCISCO. I
Gould Interest's Likely at Last to Get
a Pacific Terminus.
San Francisco, Feb.24.���The Examiner says that every indication points
to the belief that a big railway and
financial deal ls on the tapis,by which
George J, Gould's Missouri Pacili ,
will gain an entrance into San Francisco. Prince Poniatowski,S. F. Bullock, one of his partners in several
enterprises, and Senator Clark, of
Montana, are represented as being
conneoted witb Gould in his scheme to
extend the Gould railway system west
from Salt Lake to San Francisco.
Gould will make a tour of the coast
next month.
Tbe alleged railway scheme is said
to contemplate the erection of a fine
depot and hotel in this city. Then a
railway will be run south to the San
Mateo county line. From there on, a
road will be built to Los Angeles to
connect witb the line Senator Cl��rk is
building to Salt Lake. At the Utah
capital,Clark's road will connect with
Rio Grande and Western to Denver.
At Denver it connects with his Missouri Pacific to St. Louis From St.
Louis to Toledo he owns the] Wabash
road which is now being extended to
Pittsburg.
F. S, Bullock said he could give no
details, as publicity was likely to
spoil negoitations now in progress.
"Myself and others," he added, "are
acting for other parties, perhaps a
syndicate. While thore is something
in tbo story, it   is   premature   at this
time."

BILLED BY A BULL.
Niagara Falls, Ont., Feb. 24.���T.

monastery at Falls view, was killed

TILLMAN EXCUSED.
President Withdraws His Invitation
to Dine With the Prince.
Washington, Feb. 24.���The following is the letter from the White Honso
withdrawing Mr. Tillman's invitation
to dine there tonight:
"White Honse, Feb. 24 :���The president regrets that he is compelled to
withdraw the invitation to you to
dine tonight at the White Houbb.
Very truly yourB, George B. Cortel-
you, secretary to the president."
Commenting upon the letter Mr.
Tillman says: "The president, of
course, has Ihe right to invite any ono
he chooses to dine with him officially
or otherwise, and also has the right to
witndraw such invitation. As 1 am
not conscious of having done anything
personal or official whicn gives the
president the rigbt to insult 1 am
surprised at his action. The invitation to tbe dinner came to me unsought and unexpectedly and so far as
the withdrawal 1b concerned it is a
matter of absolute indifference to me,
It is tbe motive behind it wbich seeks
to put me in tbe condition ot un-
worthiness to met the president and his
guests before final action by the
senate. Prince Henry, the president's
guest, comes from a country where
custom makes it obligatory upon any
man who regards himself a gentleman
to resent promptly an insult and the
mothod i3by challenge to a duel. That
was once the custom but it is now
ubsoleto in tho United States and who
have been forced as a people here to
cling to the old Anglo-Saxon rule of
considering the lie direct as the first
blow and no man could hold np his
head in decent society should he,boing
near enough to answer the lie with
blow, not fo give it.
"As for my being in oontompt of
the senate, which I piesumo
I
cuse for this insult at the hands of the TJTTTT T    "DTTTf T\
president, that I deny.      I   have been    If 1���1���1  D U 1���I���J
guilty cf a breach of the rules and tho
privileges of the senate. Thu senate i
was not sitting ns a court, but as a
legislative assembly. It has the rigbt
to expel me if it sees fit, and I am
ready to abide its judgment and lH!ITi6nS'
action. It has tho right to arrest me
and hold rae in custody,until it makes
disposition of my case, but it hus not
tbe right to gag me, and the president
bad no right to judge me of conduct
unbecoming a gentleman unless he
belies all his antecedents whioh lead
one to believe that be would have
done just as I did, miner the circumstances. As to which one uf us is the
gentleman in thiB matter, in view of
the unsought invitation to dinner at
tbe White House and its indecent
v it'udrawiil, I am willing to abide by
the judgment of all brave and self
respecting men.

Refining and Smelting Co. is thought
to he directly due to its efforts. By
this action it also drove out of the
country the competition of a powerful
combination, and the lack of competition is being severely felt by the lead
miners. If tbe C. P. R. could have
its way, besides driving the American smelting company forth, it
would also drive out all competing
lines of railway in order that it might
have full sovereignty in what its leading ollicera are pleased to term "their

HAS A SINSTER INFLUENCE.
Tbe newspapers representing certair
interests in this country have much to
say regarding the price of coko and
coal supplied by the Crow's Nest Pass
Coal Co. They would nave the public
believe it was the one issue on which
the welfare of the mining country
was dependent. It miglit be In order
to say to those interested "And thou
Brutus." Between Fernie and Nelson
three gieat lead mines find themselves
unable to market their ores today.
Ainsworth, another great lead producing oamp, also lies entirely idle.
The closing down of the Slocan Star
mine at Sandon is the latest ovidenco
of the price the mines in tho Kootenay
section are called on to pay for conditions whioh we intend to point out.
In the old days, before tlio Canadian
Pacific railway went into the lead
smelting business, thore was agressive
competition, everybody was satisfied,
the prodnotion of tbe section was
large, and both employers and the employed were prosperous.
Thoughfnl people could not but be
struck witb the succession of events
billowing in tho wake of tbe identification of the Canadian Pacific railway
with the Trail smelter, and the establishment of rates to it, with a view of
excluding competition, and for the
development of its own plant.
Nearly everyone is familiar with
the tacts that lead up to tbe withdrawal of the American Smelting and
Refining company from the British
Columbian ore fields, an event whicb
every mine owner considered v:as a
direct blow *o lhe lead mining ln-
ustry. Others, familiar with more
recent events, know that tho interest
of the Trail smelter has ever been
towards increasing smelter charges,
and that its proposal to reduce the
smelting charges for 1002 was duo to
the efforts of one or two United States
smelters still drawing ore from tbis
section, and that it was made in the
face of objections from some, at
loast, ol the local smeltermen.
Thero are troubles and troubles and
it would not surprise unyon* who is
conversant with tlie inside situation,
to see these two remaining smelters
withdraw from tbe field, as both have
an abundant oro supply nearer home,
and as they do not care to stand the
annoyance and interference of the
combination which is so rapidly (?)
increasing tlio production of ore in
British Columbia.
The Mine Owners' Association and
those interested in securing capital
for this section went to Ottawa with _
view to securing a bonus or subsidy
for tho refining of lead bullion in
Canada, but tlie mine owuer and shipper has yet to see anyone who has
offered any tangible evidence that if
such a reflncrv is established thore
wiil bo a single dollar's wortn of advantage to tho producer of the lead
oro. It is simply another step in the
tying up of tbo wholo silver-lead
section in the interest of thc Canadian
Panifio railway, and its adjunct, the
Trail Smelting Co.
If this section is to secure capital
for the development of its mining
properties publio opinion must so assert Itself that the present conditions
will bo adjusted so as to permit the
freest possible computition in the sale
of ores and their transporattion.
It cannot be denied tbat matters have
gone from bad to worse in thc silver-
lead section during the last three
years. The fact that the production
of silver-load ore fell oil abont 0,UO0
tons in 1001 from what it was in 1U00
reveals that a screw is loose somewhere. It is in order, therefore, so
that the g<iod of tlio whole country be
not subordinated to tho insatiable
greed of tbo few that thc thinking
public locale tbe cause and remove it
before a languishing industry is entirely destroyed.
It cannot lie that the situation above
outlined could have been wrought
independent ol a corporation SO
powerful, and it is certain that the
increased prices for smelting in lliOi
find the driving out of  the  Ameucan
Nelson residents are taking kindly
to tbe idea of foiming a tourists' association, for tbe purpose of calling
attention to thc facilities in tbe
vicinity of this city for fishing, hunting, boating and for viewing the beauty
and grandeur ot tbo scenery. It is
certain if tho many attractions of the
locality where properly put before thc
people of other communities, aud especially of the larger oities, many
would come here and spend their outings. Ono thing is certaiu that the
hunting, fishing and scenery can
hardly be surpassed anywhere in the
west, and those who come once will
visit us again.
The governmont of Now Brunswick
considers the sportsmen and the business they bring to the province so
important that advertising the advantages of the province in order to induce them to come has been made a
part of its policy.
New Brunswick, we believe, has
not nearly the advantages for sportsmen tnat tbis vicinity bas, Along the
arm of Kootenay Lake, the banks of
the main Kootenay lake and Arrow
lakes, and in tbe Lardeau country,
game is to be found in abundance and
nowhere can finer trout bo caught
than in the steams emptying into
these bodies of wator.
Thousands of tourists pass through
the province over the main line of tbe
C. P. R. annually. A large number
from tbe eastern stutes annually visit
California, Oregon and Washington
and among these are many lovers of
out-door sports. Game and fish are
becoming scarce in these states, owing
to poor game laws and the constant
hunting and fishing that is in progress. Wero the attractions of this sec
tion made Known to the tourists they
would come here by the hundreds and
enjoy themselves to the top of their
bent.
Steps should at once be taken to
form local tourists' association and it
should be a strong one with an execn
tivo made up of energetic citizens
Such an association, by liberal use of
printers' ink, would soon make Welson
the Mecca of thousands each year.
There is a distinct advantage in having sportsmen come hero aside from
the business they bring to the hotels
tbey patronize, the guns, and ammunition and fir-hing tackle which they
purchase. Many of the lovers of outdoor sports are well to do, and a few
while here would see the possibilities
of tbe mines and would invest in our
mining pioperties and so aid in tbe
developcnt of the country,
Victoria has organized a tourists'
association and the sum of $3,717.50
has been subscribed hy the citizens
to carry out its objects. Premier
Dunsmuir heads the list of subscribers
and his contribution was $500. One of
the speakers at a recent meeting of
the society stated that the good work
of the society should go on. The association had for its assets tho support
of the peoplo and several thousands of
dollars. He believed in the judicious
use of printers' ink. He also believed
in the judicious expenditure of money
in scouring large local pictures for
distribution in railway stations and
elswehore. The best advertisement
was a gratified patron, and he pointed
out the urgency of having good hotel
accommodation where tourists oould
have evory comfort and every convenience. Tho association should also
direct its attention to transportation
rates and show prospective tourists
how to get to Victoria.
It is evident from the above that
Victoria, like.Nelson, reoognizes the
benefits whioh an energetic tourists'
association can bring to a community,
and is determined to have one that
will bring about desired results.

COBUOD1NU OF LEAD.
While most white lead Is still mado
by the old Dutch process of slow corrosion, there are several new ways,
says the Rossland Miner, one ot tbe
best being the Bailey mothod, as in
operation at Jersey City, N.J., where
the lead is melted in a big cauldron
10 feet above the factory floor, and
run into a second smaller pot over a
slow fire, which keeps it at an even
temperature. At tho bottom of this
second pot is a short horizontal 3 1-2
inch nozzle, which euda in a thin
stool plate, perforated with about 200
tiny holos, through which tho melted
lead is forced by the hydrostatic pressure of its own mass, becoming inline-
datoy solidQod as it falls through tho
air in fine fibers ot about .01 inch
diameter. It cools so rapidly that ono
can hold his band  in   the  stream  ol
fine lead filaments which cluster in
festoons around it. Hunches of this
fiDei are forked into trays 0 feet by 3
feet, 5 inches deep, each tray Holding
about 75 pounds, piled in stneks or
tiers, through which carbon dioxide
makes its way from tbo bottom. As
tbe trays are filled with tbe lead fiber
they are momentarily immersed,
singly, in a tank containing an 8 per
cent, solution of No. 20 acetic acid;
then, aftor draining on an inclined
pla.'irm, they aro piled in staoks of
20 over openings in tbe floor, through
wbich the carbon dioxide ascends,
while tho temperature is kept at 100
degress F. At the end of three days
of tbis process of corrosion tbe contents of the trays are flung into water,
��� esulting in white lead so fine that
little subsequent grinding is neces-
Bary, the creamy mass passing into a
cylindrical screening, partially submerged in water. After thorough
washing tho white lead is dried for
the market. There is a residue of
about 8 per cent.unchanged lead,finely
grouno, nnd thus suitable for the
manufacture of lead acetate.

AN EVIDENCE
OF PROGRESS
Substantial Steel  Swinging
Bridge at Robson Completed.
Marks New Era ln Railway
Facilities of   Kootenay.
Tho opening of the new bridge
across tho Columbia at Robson marks
an important epoch in railway work
in this soction of British Columbia.
The prcgre.s that has been made in
railway tacilit'es since tho first railway was built Into Nelaon, although
but ten yoars ago is wonderful. Ten
yoars ago there was the choice of two
trails to reach the city 01 leave it,
now the traveller bas tbe choice of
half a dozen different routes by steam
or rail, as suits bim best. Ibe bridge
means a great deal for Nelson,as since
it was opened for freight trains more
and more traffic finds its way to the
Nelson yards, whieh are the most complete the best in the distriot. The
bridge is ao important step in the connecting the Crow's Nest line with the
coast when an immensely larger quan-
itty of freight will be bandied here,
as Nelson will then become an even
more important distributing point
than it is now.
Work on the bridge was first started
ln November, 1900, tho original allowance for the structure being $1!>0,000.
This, however, has proved inadequate
and the total cost will probably
amount to $175,000. J. Qunn was the
contractor for tho piers, which are 8
in number. The highest of these piers
is 80 feet from where it rests on pile
foundations V, the bridge. At low
water this pi r rests in 35 feet of
water and the inference between thc
low water mark and the extra bigh
water stage ls 35 feet, giving a depth
there of 70 feet at high water.
These piers are 10 feet wide and 20
fuet long, with cutwater front and aro
built of granite, which was quarried
close to Nelson.
The bridge itself was built by tbe
Dominion Bridge company and was
also erected by it under the superintendence of J. Findlay. It consists of
three 50-foot deck spans, each of two
hundred foot, and a swinging span of
120 feet, wbich when open leaves a
space of 60 feet between piers. The
total length of the bridge proper is 700
feet. The steel trusses of the bridge
rise 30 feet above the tracks. The
approaches consist of a fill on the east
side oi the river 1,000 feet in length
and averaging 85 feet in depth, while
on the west side a cut of 2,000 feet
through a gravel bank was necessary,
the heaviest portion being 30 feet
deep. A steam shovel has been employed in taking ont the gravel whioh
has been carried acrdsa the river and
used to fill in on the other side. This
work on the approaches was done
partly by the railway company themselves and partly by Tierney and Mo-
Pbail, contractors. This part is not
finished yet, a trestle being used at
the western approach. Until the till
is completed only freight trains are
taken across tbe bridge, passenger
trains being yet   transferred by ferry.
dues charged on timber cut on mining
claims and to petition tho government
not to collect such dues when tho timber is used On the property on which
it is put; of imposing an import duty
on lead products more nearly on a par
with that now levied on other manu-
fctured goods; of appointing delegates
to the Dominion board of trade; of
appointing forest rangers to prevent
forest fires if possible, and that the
association take steps to publish 5,000
copies of an illustrated edition of tlie
proceedings of the convention, with
up-to-date information as to tlie progress of the various industries of tbe
interior of the province.
Tlie Trail board has two resolution?,
one almost on similar lines to that cf
the Kaslo board as to duty on lead.
and the second aa to encouraging the
treatment of Canadian ores In Canada,
A resolution from the Greenwood
board asks the Dominion government
to take stops to proonre the opening
up of new coal fields that cheaper fuel
may be obtained for tho Uoundary
smelters.
The Grand Forks board asks thc
Associated boards to endorse the proposition of two members of the provincial legislature for the Uoundary, and
to abolish, or at least, very much
lower, the tax on the ore mined.
The Cascade board is pressing the
subject of local road boards to supervise the expenditure of public money
on roads and bridges in the districts
which are yet too thinly populated to
establish municipal governmont.
Rossland board bas a resolution
asking the Dominion government to
appoint at once a chief justice for the
province in succession to thu late Chief
Justice McColl; and also one asking
the legislature to provide a means by
which the municipalities may enforce
the closing of stores on legal holidays
and during oertuin hours.
Nelson board has a resolution urging that the tax on ore be levied only
on the net output and not un the gross
value. Its second resolution asks for
the appointment of a resident post-
office inspector for the district.
Kaslo also gives notice that it will
bring up a resolution from the Halifax board of trade regarding the Intercolonial railway, and also resolutions from thc London chamber of
commerce dealing with trade marks,
commercial education, imperial telegraphs and tariffs. Rossland bas referred to tbe Associated board a resolution from the Brantford beard of
trade regaiding a general revision of
the tariff.

Subjects to Come Before the Approaching Meeting at Kaslo.
The delegates to the annual meeting
of the Associated Boards of Trade of
Eastern British Columbia leave for
Kaslo on Wednesday afternoon. The
Nelson board will be represented by
Hamilton Byers, and J. J. Campbell.
G. V. Holt, wbo is cx-ollicio a delegate, has not yet deeided whether he
will go, and in oase he does not, he
has the privilege uf naming a substitute.
Quite a number of important subject will come up for discussion. Ao-
cording to the bylaws of the associations each local board of trade drafts
resolutions an the matters it wishes
discussed and these drafts aie tor-
warded to the cecretary of the associated boards who Bunds copies to each
of the boards so that the delegates
may be instructed as to what positions
to take on the various questions.
Kaslo board has a resolution asking
the Dominion government, when it
appoints a new senator for British
Columbia, as this province is entitled
to bv the last census, to name a man
familiar with the mining industry for
the position. That board also suggests that in the event ol a commission ou reciprocity with the United
States being appointed a man from
this province be appointed a member
of tbe commission. The Kaslo board
Will   also bring up   the   question*  of
WOULD BE A GOOD THING.
Mayor Fletcher Points Out Benefits a
Tourist Association Would Confer.
Mayor Fletcber waB approached by
a Miner reporter yesterday and asked
as to his opinion of tbe proposal to
start a tourist association in Nelson.
He replied that he thought it a very
good matter to take up.
There bas been a marked decrease,
he said, in the number of tourists who
have visited the city during the past
three years compared with the num
ber who oame here when the district
was flrst opened np. Then an effort
was made tu advertise the plaoe and
large numbers came bere fur the fishing especially, which can not be
beaten in the country. The board of
trade some years ago got up a pamphlet with a map of Southeast Kootenny on it, whieh was distributed
throughout Canada, tbe United States
and Great Britain. Since that time
n o effort has been made to draw attention to the scenery and other
attactions of the district for tourists,
although we have had suoh a large
increase of faoilities for reaching
places of interest in all directions
from Nelson witb comfort. It would
be essential to get the railway companies to join bands witb the association to assist in adverising the attractions of this section of the country.
The benefits to be derived are tar
more than those alone from the spending of money by tourists while visiting here. Besides the investing often
done by toursts.the reports tliey would
carry away would frequently induce
others to visit or invest here in various ways. In the past this advertising
of the city was entirely in the hands
of the board of trade, but if it was
taken up by a tourist association, aa
is being done at Victoria and other
cities, a much larger circle of citizens
would be interested In it and would
patronize the scheme and give it their
hearty support. It would also be a
means of protecting our trout from the
men who are fishing entirely for the
market and thereby destroying the
excellent fly fishing that exists in our
river and many of the streams flowing
into it. Everything points to the fact
tbat means other than those allowed
by the laws are being uBed to capture
the trout and if tbe government oould
be induced to give more stringent protection to the fish it might also take
action to look after the game. The
opening up of new trails that is going
on steadily, allows the pothunter and
Indian greater facilttios to travel  and

destroy the gam<j, and to drive the
games ont of this section of the
country. There is no doubt but that if
the advantages of this section as a
summer resort for health and for hunting in the fall were well advertised
that a large influx of tourists would
visit it each seal en. Within a short
time tbe variety and grandeur of the
scenery that can be viewed around
Nelson is wonderful and the places of
interest to visit are also very numerous.
This association would fall into
line very well with the effort that is
being mado this summer to bring
Nelson prominently before the world
as one of tho best places in the interior of British Columbia to bold
aquatic race meetings. With boat
clubs sending crews this summer from
tbe cities of the coast, from Winnipeg
and other paints by a little judicious
work on thu part of Nelson it should
be possible to bring a good representation of their friends from the towns
interested. llesidcs this there should
be something done to persuade tbe
visitors to spend two or three days
bere outside of the regatta, and have
guides to take them fishing and also
give them an idea of the bunting to
be had later. The move is a guod oue
in every way and thould be of great
benefit to tho city.

At thu regular meeting of the city
council last evening flic lirst business
to come up was thu receiving of contracts ior druKS. Two tenders bad
been received, and one of these had
not arrived within the timo spool fled.
It was pointed out lhat as W. F.
Teetzel was ill and had not been able
to tender tliat the timo should be extended and so it wafl decided that the
time should bo extended two weeks
more.
No tenders wore received for black-
smithing, so it was decided that tho
work should be divided as before,
Thc report of the finance committee
was read whioh recommended the
payment of the following acoounts:
D. Burgess, estimate on publio offices,
$101.liS; firemen's payroll, $367;
scavenging department, $2<>~ ; salaries,
81,385; sewer maintenance, $60.25:
water maintenance, $43.10; streets,
$54.45; electric light maintenance, $69.
Total, 82,3112.55.
The report was received and checks
ordered to ba issued. A letter was
read from tho oity solicitor stating
that the oity was quite within its
rights in defunding the citv health
officer aud in paying tho costs of such
an action. On motion of Aid. Selous
sooonded by Aid,Irving it was decided
that the legal expenses incurred up to
date should be paid.
A letter was read from J. Matheson, asking for permission to tin tho
electric light pole in front of his bar-
bcring establishment for seven or
eight feet from the ground and to
piint the same in stripes. It was
decided on motion of Aid. Morrison
seconded by Aid. Drew that this permission could not be given, as it
would not bo fair to the other baihcrs
who had no electriu light poles in
front of their stores and had been
compelled to remove the piivate poles.
On motion of Aid. Drew, seconded
by Aid. Irving, it was d-cided that
hydrants should be placed at tli3 new
high school, at the corner of Ward
and Silica streets and on the fiat near
the gas house.
The mayor stated that offers had
been recievod this week from Chinamen who were squatting on the laud
up Cottonwood valley tbat had been
granted the city for park purposes,
asking for a lease. The mayor stated
that it wa6 out of the power ol the
city to grant a lease for any Buch
purpose and that the best policy
would be to let the Chinamen go on
using thc laud until thc city was ready
to use it. There was a feeling
throughout town that it would be a
very good move to estab'ish a racetrack there and there was a number of
men in the city who would be willing
to put money into such a projeot, perhaps having it for a number of years
and then turning it over to the city.
If tllis could be done it would be a
good thing for the city.
Tho mayor further stated that in the
matter of investigating the reason that
led the last council to dismiss T. W.
Lilho might be takon up this week
and he wonld ask the council to suggest Bome day for the purpose.
After some discussion Thursday
afternoon at 3 o'olock was settled as
the best day for all.
It waB decided that a petition shjuld
be furwurded to the government asking a grant of $5,000 towards the high
school building.
The mayor stated that ho had received a communication lrom Victoria
to the effect that the West Kootenay
Power and Light Co. were pressing
their claim on the land desired by tho
oity for a power site. He bad wired
Mr. Ilodwell, who had thc city's case
in hand, to push the claims of tho city
also.
Aid. Hamilton called tbo attention
of the counoil to the necessity of taking action to confine Cottonwood creek
within proper bounds before tho high
water should come. It was decided
that tbe mayor and city engineer
should examine the land and seo what
should be done, with power to expend
$300 in improving the channel.
Aid. Diew asked that a statement
of the arrears of water, light and
scavenging rates should be given to
tho counoil each month so tliat action
might be taken
It was decided that tlie salary of the
city solictor should dato from thc llrst
ot January last.
On motion of Aid. Morrison,
seconded by Aid.Irving it was decided
that the fire wardens should consist of

Quobeo Legislature Discuss Motion on
Relation of Provinoe to Dominion.
Quebec, Fob. 24.���Somewhat of a
sensation has been created here by a
notice of motion given last evening by
Perrault:
That in thc opinion of this house
the revenues allotted to various provinces by the Uritiah North America
act are insufficient to allow of tLeir
meeting the requirements of public
servico, and at the same timo giving
ncessary aid to colonization and agriculture, the development of our industries, and improvement of our
educational system.
That the interpretation given to
various clauses of tho constitution has
endangered the existence ot our local
institutions, and that the government
of Canada and these of other provinces
should be invited to join tho government of tlio province of Quebec in asking the parliament of tho United
Kingdom to make suoh changes in tho
confederation act as may alter tho
basis on which the federal subsidy is
calculated, secure to the provinces exclusive control over the public properties and over railways within their
limits, allow of their imposing export
duties on products of their forests and
mines, and confer upon the governmont of Great llritain the right of disallowing provincial laws now cxer-
cisod liy that of Canada. There is a
current belief that this motion is uf
ministerial inspiration, and that, consequently, it will be adopted by a
maioritv voto of the house.
