being made and many rumors are
abroad as to various items that ihe
representatives of the home office do
not like. Among these tbe Miner
newspaper comes iu for a share. The
removal of Mr. McDonald will make
tbe settlement of tbe strike easier
than It otherwise would have been
for although K. J. Freoheville, the
director appointed to mnke an inquiry
into the condition of affairs here
has expressed himself as opposed to
recognizing tho union in any way the
nnion Iook upon bim as a man wbo
will approach a question without
prejudice. W. L. Mackenzie King,
deputy ministei of labor is expected
to arrive on Wednesday and as be
comes at the request of one of the
parlies to tbe dispute his mediation is
expected to bear results. Though
the situation does not look promising
to the union in some respects, the
members arc determined not to return
to work until a satisfactory settlement has been reached. The time
now named for a probable settlement
is December 1st.
Up to the present the Rossland
union bas home all the expenses incurred and besides bas subscribed $850
toward helping the Nortbport smeller
men. Tbe exeoutive of tbe Western
Pt-ili ration of miners meet 111 Denver
this week when the Rossland strike
and tbe financial questions involved
will be the chief business for   action!
At Noilbport the new manager,
Mr. Labarlhe, now on the staff of the
Trail smelter is expected to 'take
charge on November 15th, and this
will go a long way toward a settlement there, tbougb the Smelter men'm
union has decided that the Nortbport
and Rossland matters must be settled
together. Business in Rossland is improving slightly but not wilh any
n irked rapidity.

expenditures of the Government he reviewed the war taxes, and said that

prese, on the authority of Dr. Miller
McGnire, a famous military ooaoh,
gives what it alleges to be the authentic version of the heliogram sent

lasting for a month. Can you hold

J. P. Swedburg asked that the
sidewalk on Stanley street be extended
as far as Gore street to connect with
a residence belonging to him on the
oorner. The matter was referred to
the board of works with power to act.
T e sanitary inspector wrote stating that owing to the street car
tracks onKootenay above Houston being
above grade it waa imposihle fur tbe
sanitary wagons to get up to the
houses in that neighorhood. It waa
deoided that the tramway company
should be notified to remove the
trackj on the street referred to, as
they are not being used and totally
blocked the street.
A communication relating to the
crossing of Willow stroet on Front
was  rcierred to the oity engineer.
The matter of the city whirf then
came up. It was stated that the Nelson Sawmill oompany refused to incur
any expense in the altering of the
connection between its mill and the
city wharf. The advice of the city
soicitor, who was present, was asked
as to the oity's right in the matter
and it was uecided by his advice that
the city should see the lease granted
to the sawmill company ty the provincial government before any aetiou
should be taken.
A letter was then read from the
manager of the Nelson Gas oompany
stating that he expected a definite
answer from the headquarters of his
company in a few days relating to the
a question of supplying the city with
power when he wonld communicate
with the city at onoe on the matter.
A petition fiom James Gilker and a
unmoor of others asking that in view
of the growth of the city a money bylaw for tne raising nf 8150,000 for the
purpose of putting in a power plant
on the Kootenay river for the purpose
of supplying the city with power for
lighting and other purposes bi
brought before the people- The
petition also stated that tbe petition
ers represented tbe owners of at least
one tenth of tbe real estate cf the
citv. Aid.Irving aaid tbat if anything
was to be done In that matter it was
time a start was made.
Aid. Hamilton did not think it wise
to make any move to bring a by-law
up until they bad a definite idea of
how muoh the plant would cost and
if they could get the site.
Mayor Fletcher asked the city engineer if he bad made an estimate of
how much such a plant would est.
Mr. MoGulloch said that on a rough
estimate be figured out that $126,000
would be sufficient,
Aid Selous said that the first thing
to do was to find out if they could get
the site and then as to how much it
would cost. Action shonld be takon
but the data for It should be obtained
On a question from the mayor, Mr.
MoCullocb said tbat only a email por
tion of tbe work had to be done at
low water tbe greater part could be
done at any sesaon of tbe year.
On motion of Aid. Selous, seconded
by Aid. Gillette, tho petition was received, and the mayor instructed to
oonfer with the city solicitor as tt the
best means of finding out about the i Christian Scientist's Defence
site at once , ... .
This was understrod to mea= that if W11011 ACCUSed Of Man-
necessary the mayor should proceed to slfllinhtfir
Victoria   to   press the matter on   the MdUyilUJr,
government personally.
The council Iben went into oommittee for the further consideration of
by law 101, known as the Powor bylaw. The principal differences made
in the by-law as presented was that
the minimum had been reduced to 100
horsepower wiMi a limit of 50 horsepower to work on. Thus if the city
at one time used 120 or 130 it
would only have to pay fo that much,
but il it used 150, that figure in
future would be the minimum with
under 200 the maximum, anything
between that figure and 200 to be
charged as used, and so on up. After
some discussion, Mr. Campbell, the
manager of the West Kootenay Power
&, Light Co., also agreed to loner the
rate to 83.75 per horsepower per
month for from 100 to 300 horsepower.
Mr. Campbell said that the city
conld not possib'y instal a 1,000
horsepower plant on the river with
Ihe necessary lines and machiney for
losn than 8350 per horsepower It
could put in a makeshift that would
do for 11 couple of years but for a good
operating plant they could not put
one in cheaper.
Aid. Seluus spoke of the necessity
of the city having better public
lights. Tbe coramitee then arose and
reported   progress.
On motion of Aid.SeIons,seconded by
Aid. Gillette the by-law was read a
third time.
It was then decided that the polling
day should be tbe 19th November and
the polling places at Ward Bros, and
the police station. ''

The question of securing a sufficient
supply of   lead   to keep the   proposed
lead   renflery   in operation may have
the effect of postponing Its   cstablish-
mn.     Broadly   stated tbe position is
as follows:   The parties who arc willing   to   erect the refinery want   Borne
sort of a guarantee   that there will be
sufficient lead matte to keep the refinery   in   operation   bafore   they   will
start to build.      They   wish the refln-
er.v to havo an mi tput of   100   tons   of
lead per day.      The present output of
the silver-lead mines   is   from   50,000
to fiO.OOO tons por annum and in order
that   the   refinery may havo sufficient
lead   matte   to keep   it   continuously
running the output of ore would have
to   be   increased   to 87,000   tons   per
annum.    If the mines of East   Kootenay were run up to their full capacity
and   woulil with   those of   the .Slocan
and   Lardeau guarantee   the   tonnage
tbere would be uo  difficulty in securing the required tonnage.      The mine
owners so far seem to be unwilling to
guarantee the asked   for tonnage.    In
a number   of instances just as soon ns
tbe   price   of lead drops   they become
frightened and shut   down   shipping.
The  smelters   for   instance,   have  as
much ore as  tbey   can   handle   when
lead   is   iow hut a shortage is experienced   when   prices fall as shipments
almost cease.
The Trail Creek News, says there
have boen "periods of late when the
output of bullion was as much again
as waa received from the mines. This
bullion was worked up frcm accumulated shipments made whon the lead
market was "nigh. The disadvantage
is that tho mine owners sell their ore
nt the market price, but by tho time
tbe shipments are made and the
values extracted so much time has
elHpsed that tho market Irops and the
smelters are compelled to oany the
product until a rise wairunts its disposal. Thus the smelters have no
protection, while Ihe mine owners can
simply shut oft shipments at any
What is wanted by the parties who
Bland ready ti erect tho refinery is an
agreement on the part of the mine
owners to lnrnish a certain tonnage
at a figure that will justify them in
shipping and justify the smelters in
purchasing their ores. On the present
basis the advantage is one sided, and
it is not a business proposition to tie
np not only tho large sum of
11110,000 for the construction of a
plant, bat in the neighborhood tf a
million dollars in buying and marketing the product.
This is not the time for shillyshallying on the lead question and

The   sixtieth   anniversary    of   the
birth of King Edward VII.   occurs on
Saturday next and it Is a public holiday       His   Majesty   has expressed   a
wish that the day beoff.cially observed
and   it   will   be by state dinners.   As
this is the first time of tho o'cnrrenoe
of the anniversary   of the oirth of the
King since he succeeded to the throne
the people of Nelson should take steps
to properly   observe   the  day.     That
time is short, it is true but something
should be   done.      King   Edward has
shown that he   holds Canada in   high
esteem by sending   tho heir apparent,
the Unite of Com .vail and York,    and
his consort to visit us and the   people
hero tendered them a   royal   ret eption
nnd   hence   special   pains  should   be
taken   to   mark the King's   hlrthdaj
with celebrations.     The people of the
empire have become so   accustomed to
celebrating the   birthday of   the   late
Victoria the (iood,    through the many
years of her matchless   reign,   that it
will seem strange for   them,   at   first,
to observe the birthday of her son and

Gentlemen : I write this testimonial from a sense of duty, hnving tested the
wonderful effect of your Asthmalene, for the cure of Asthma. My wife has
been alflcted with spasmodic asthma for thf cast 12 years. Having exhausted
my own skill as well us many others, 1 chancid to see your sign upon your
windows on 130 th street, New York, I at onoe obtained a bottle of Asthmnleim.
My wife commenced taking it about the first of November. I very soon noticed
a radical improvement. After using one boltle her Asthma bus disappear,d
and she is entirely freo from all symptoms. I feel that I can consistently recommend the medicine to all who are ufHioted with this distressing disease.

The Vancouver Liberal Association
has declined that no proxies shall be
allowed at the proposed convention
to be held In January and the Kootenay Mail suggests that the Liberals
of the Inland disnict refuse to have
anything to do with tho convention
called under such unfair conditions.
The same paper suggests that Revel-
stoke is more centrally located than
Vancouver for tne meeting of the
Liberal convention. Revelstoke is at
the point of junction of tralllc of the
main C, P. R. line with South and
Kast Kootenay and the Doundary
therefore the most convenient place for
representatives to meet from all parts
of the piovince. It further holds that
the Vancouver Association has no
tight to arrogate to itself the right to
call a convention when there is a
provincial executive to attend to such
matters. The Kootenay Mnil is right,
the people of tho coast cities imagine
that they are all that there H important of British Columbia and should
aud will be taught that there are
other sections of considerable importance that must be considered.

"Uoenuse they hate to worry the poor

It seems cruel to he all the time correct-
lug them and keeping them on their
good behavior. They will have to learn

"Yes," said the spinster, "and In addition to learning to spenk properly they
will have to unlearn the tricks of speech
in which they have been allowed to ln-
dulgo all their little lives. I know,"
laughing, "that there in much ridicule of

my theory In this case is correct. It is n
positive uukludness to let your child
double his negatives and say 'nln't'
when several years from now he will
bo harshly reproved for Biich lapses.
The child must learn to talk anyway,
and Is it not ns easy to teach him to
say 'It Is I' as 'U'h me?' And Is It
not as simple for the little tongue to
lisp 'I sow It' aa 'I seen It?' 1 love
baby talk and should not correct a child
for his mispronunciation of hard words.
As he grows older ho will himself sea
his mistakes in that line and change
them. But I InslBt that It Is a parent's
duty to make the dillicult path to grammatical speech as easy as possible by
never allowing the little ones to stray
from it In the beginning."

Cold Bathing In the Marnlnff.
I have heard people prescribe a cold
morning tub as a euro for all Ills. As a
matter of fact, a cold bath should be
taken with the greatest discrimination,
and delicate girls and women should
never embark upon the enterprise without medical sanction. Cold bathing in
the early morning is bcneficlnl only to
those who have sufficient vital cuergy
and nervous force to Insure good reaction, with no subsequent languor or lassitude You may feel refreshed immediately aftor your bath, but tired and
languid two or three hours after It.
When this occurB, It is conclusive evidence against the practice. Those who
have an abundance of flesh and blood,
wbo are lymphatic or sluggish In temperament and whose nervous force Is not
depleted can tako the cold murning batb
to advantage. Others who are thin and
tlicht, whose hands and feet become cold
and clammy on the slightest provocation,
who digest food slowly and assimilate
It with difficulty, Bhould avoid enrly
morning bathing. Por all Btich a tepid
bath in the middle of the day (but not
within two hours after a meal) or before
retiring at night Is far more desirable,
and It should he followed by rest of body
and brain till equable conditions of circulation are rc-estahllshcd.���Lady.

art. Unless the head of the amateur
company be a professional of marked
ability and taste, engaged as Instructor
and manager, there should be a committee of reference by which every affair ef the company may bo diBcussed
and decided. It Is, however, much the
best plan to select one person to control
the affairs of tho company. Melodrama
1 think best adapted to amateur presentation, both as schooling for the players
nnd In the light of tho greatest probable
success in presentation. In melodrama
It Is less difflcult to arrive at some degree of success, because Its effects are
produced by methods more artificial than
must be employed In comedy and tragedy."   _

Causes Surprise.
Surprise Is often expressed that the
nice girls all marry men whose lives have
been passed In a whirling purple blaze,
while th* men of Irreproachable and colorless pasts pro looked up to���and frozon
when thoy come too close. But there is
do possible excuse (or wondering. It all
lies In our awful longing for the spice of
life���variety. Wo are all so commonplace that when we find some ono who
dares walk out of the beaten path we
capitulate at once, and only wicked people dare walk out of the beaten path. It
Is not the bad people nor the foolish people who really Irritate ns. They have
infinite "possibilities," and there Is, after
all, a streak of common humanity In
tbem that touches �� responsive chord.���
The Qneen'. Perqulaltea.
Queen Victoria is not only In receipt of
her annual Income from the people of
Great Britain, but she Is entitled besides
to a considerable number of perquisites for
the supply of the royal household. Among
the most curious ot these Is her right to
every wbale or sturgoon captured on tbe
coast of the United Kingdom and brought
to land. Both ot these perquisites date
back to the Norman kings, aud it appears
