rij-i ATTt A "XT  C1T.AT.rn I     Alderman Irving tuid that tho Hoard {
~i LUND AY   blUiil   knew us   much  about  the    fiiiunclal
! conditio, s ol the Council us the   committee.
The Mayor suggested that the only
way they could ral��e the money would
be by issuing debentures and asked
the deputation when the school*
would ho handed over to the eity and
was informed that the transfer would
take place on the first of January.
Hi-. A thur stated that ho expected
to be in Victoria In the near future
and if he were armed with information regarding the attitude of the City
Council 011 the matter it might simplify matters, but if the Council refused the grant they would be unable
to do anything mora than they had
already done.
Alderman .Scions said that by renouncing all cluitn to the block 4!i
whicli had at one time been selected
for hospital purposes, that they would
be making valuable concessions,espec-
ally when according to Mr. Swannell 's estimate, the property is at the
present time worth* 87,00(1. lie realised that next year lhat the School
Board would have power to practically
take tho City Conuc.il by tho throat
and compel them to disgorge and here
now, even before that condition of
things commenced, they anticipated
their power by malting demand upon
them for 95,000.
Mr. Swannoll claimed thut tbe
School Board had the interests of the
community us much at heart as the
Council had and would have to bear
their share of the tuxes. He furthei
stated that it was now a matter of
expediency with them, a> d if the
accommodation was nntprovidod now,
it would have to be provided In the
winter time and would consequently
incur nn Increase of expenditure.
One of the great evils they as a School
Board, had to endure was that the
school accommodation was not mad-
adequate until long after tho demand
for it was made manifest.
After some further discussion along'
Hi-, sikinc line the deputation withdrew, after which the matter was
brought to a conclusion by tlie City
Clerk being instructed to communicate
with the proper authorities relinquishing ull claim to Block 40.
The opening of tenders for the contracts advertised for was then proceed
ed with. The tenders for tho supply
of lead for the wator works depait-
mont were as follows: H. J. Evans,
at 85 per cwt. ; Lawrence Hardware,
85.UO; II. Byers .. ,Co., 87.50; Boyd,
Burns A Co., 85.40; H. E. Croasdaile,
85.50. The tender of H. J. Evans being the lowest was accepted.
Tenders for the-bnilding of the eity
;ault were then opened as follows:
E. Palinquist, 8143; W. Kcmpling,
8143; VV. Lawr, 8300; J. A. Knaff,
8175 ; Ellis .-Martin, 8330. The tender of Wm. Kempling was accepted,
and the clerk was authorized to have
the  contract   drawn   up  and   signed

About the only thing of importance
transacted at the Council meeting
last evening wus thc announcement
In the c'o.ing hour of the session that
Hugh Nixon wns to be allowed full
time while he wan diving down the
flume. Tho matter of allowing hi in
compensation for the loss of his
money will come up at the next meeting uf the conncil on Monday, June
10th.
Home surprise and disappointment
was felt by some of the Aldermen
thnt the Sunday bull game did not
come up for discussion, as it was understood (bat some of the councillors
were primed for it held night on the
matter, us there is :t pretty freely expressed opinion that somo member or
ofllciiil of the City hns given the necessary assurance to the bnsebull plnyeis
befoie they arranged the match, and
the Aldermen who are opposed to the
practise of Sunday sports are natur-
ally up in arms at the rough and
ready way in which the wishes of a
majority of the Couneil have heen
overridden. Last evening there was
an evident desire on the part of some
t f the Council to nveit the discussion
or revival of the question and a greut
amount of time was spent in discussing the matter as to whether Mr.
Appletbwalte would be violating the
fire b-ylaw by making it suggested
835 addition to his property ou Kootcnny street, or violnting the sanitary
by-law by not doing so, which wns
finally disposed of by grunting the
request. The fire and water committee
recommended the acceptance of Jno.
Lynch's tender for telegraph poles
at 7 cents delivered at Mountain station.
As another instance of thc pe.ver-
sity of matters municipal, the Council
who turned down for the time being
the application of a deputation from
the school board for a supplementary
grant'of 85,000 to enable them to provide the necessary school accommodation subsequently made n grunt of
8.00 to the executive committee of the
Dominion Day sports committee, who
had sent in an application for the
grant of 81,000, Alderman Selous, as
a political  economist,   advocated   the
cutting down of the grant to 8500, bnt [and return the deposits of the   unsue
as his motion received   no  seconder a ,_essful tenderers.

If
ht
compromise was effected by the above
arrangement.
A deputation from the School Board
consisting of Dr. Arthur and F. W.
Swannell waited upon the Council,
requesting the grant of the above
named amount, in addition to the
same amount granted by the Provincial (Iovernment,
Dr. Arthur, in stating the case for
the Board, referred to the fact that
the School Board had asked the local
Government for tho sum of 813,000 or
815,000, to enable them to provide the
accommodatioh thut the requirements
of the Nelson public school' demanded. The Government, however, had
only granted 85,000 which was inude
quate for thc increased accommodation needed. Before another winter
it would be necessary to largely increase the school accommodation aud
also to'improve the heating arrangements by putting in a steam heater
which, with the suggested structural
improvements, would,according to the
architect's estimate cost them near
8io,noo. But this arrangement would
only give tbem three additional rooms
whereas, by the City waiving their
right to Block 4!l, which they would
have no difficulty in procuring from
the Government they could, by spending 810,000 build a brick building
which would give them four looms,
and provide high school accommodation.
Mr. Swunucl stated that the 85,000
voted by the Government would not
enable them to procure the necessary
accommodation as thoy would have
to spend nearly three thousand dollars
In heating arrangements.
The Mayot thought that  the matter
Some discussion arose over the application from the Sayward coinpany
requestiug the Council tu enable them
to utilise the City wharf, which
at the present time they are unable
to do owing to high water and thc
obstruction of thb K. and S. Co.'s
float, which they asked to have removed as it was not used.
The report of the Finance Committee was adopted authorizing the payment of iteuounts to Ihe amount of 83,-
030.110.     '
Tho City solicitor was present by
request of the Couneil for the purpose
of considering the city improvement by-luw, but us the time was
then past 10 o'clock, the matter wus
left over uutil the next regular meeting, and the Oiuncll  then adjourned.

Pay to Be the   Same   But   Houis  are
Reduced.
(SPBCIAL TO THK MIHI.ll.)
Victoria, June 3.���The boilermakers
here have exacted better terras from
their employers, getting 83.50 per day
of nine and eight hours according to
work done. The new schedule came
into effect in the Star yard a day or
two ago, where the United States cutter G.ant is being repaired. The
terms apply only to jobs from tbe
other sidt. There is no advanced in
wage hut a reduction in hours. Thc
employers acceded to thc demands
with the exception of the. demand for
double pay for extra time.
CHURCH SOCIAL-
Thn regular meeting of the young
people of the Methodist church will
not be held this evening on account
of a concert and ice cream social,
which will be held in the Methodist
church tomorrow evening.
At this time of year the subject of
high water is always an interesting
one in Nelson. Although from the
city's high position it s not liable to
thc damage and danger experienced
by other towns in the district, yet
there are few who cun avoid feeling.
Impressed by the gradual hut irresistible creeping up of the water day by
day, submerging one after another
of tho familiar landmarks. Lust evening the water hnd reached a point
oner 10 feet above low water, I
and in the last four days has risen
35 inches. It is still eight inches
below the high water mark of 1.98
and over a foot below that of 18U7,
Tho highest water of which" there is
any record, was that of 189+, of which
tlio account in the following extracts
from the Nelson Miner of June 2,
1894, will doubtless prove interesting:
"Thursday, May 31.���The sun is
still shining and 85 degrees in the
shade were registered today The lake
has risen nearly two feet sine* yestera.
day and even if thc weather suddenly
changes a rise of several more feet
may be looked for. If the warm
weather continues it is difficult to see
where the flood will stop. The C. P.
Ii. train which went out last night
ploughed Us way through two feet of,
witter just outside the station and got
down to Kobs.n all right, although
the curved trestle on this side of Kootenay bridge was' considered risky,
but after crossing, it was seen to be
so bad that tho tiuin did not attempt
to return. The passengers were
brought back this morning on a hahd
car. Among them was Mr. Goepel.
The approaches to the Slooan bridge
ure not in a safe condition to admit
of thc passage of a train. At the C.
P. R. depot the station is an island.
There arc two feet of water on the
rails in front of the station. The
water is up to the floor of the freight
shed and will soon be in It. The
floor of the depot itself is today a foot
out of water. The first two trestles
on the Hue are afloat and probably
many others, and altogether it looks
as if it will be some time before the
whistle of the incoming train is
heard again.
On the lake front all the lower
houses are more oi less submerged.
At the brewery the water fills the
ground floor to the depth of six or
seven feet and bottles and casks galore are floating about. J. Macdonald's cottages and R. E. Lemon's
house have four feet of water in
them. At. Buchanan's lumber yard the
watei is up to the eaves of the shed
and all the lumber is afloat, but it
appears to be well boomed in. Both
the wharves are of course entirely under water and all the boat houses that
are usually secured to the city wharf
are moored alongside the collection of
little shacks that cluster on the knoll
near tho foot of the whatf. John
Doray's little cabin stands with its
feet in the water and his promising
looking garden is fast being swallow-,
cd up by the all devouring flood. And|
the lake is steadily rising at the rate
of about au inch per hour.
Meanwhile frcm all around comes
news of disaster. At Kaslo the warehouses are flooded, and the fair ;deni-
zens of certain nouses in the lower
part of the town havo had to lee before five feet of water. At Balfour
the Nelson steams right up to the
store and delivers her mails through
the windows.
Along the line of the Spokane and
Northern the bridges are out and passengers are transferred by steamer
between Waneta and Little Dalles.
Should this line fail us Nelson will
be entirely cut off fiom the outside
world.
On the line of thc C. P. R., we hear
on reliable authority that thc Rpvel-
stolte bridge is gone and that five to
eight miles of tho line are washed
away in the Kicking Horse Pass,

Hocking wus sent to prison for bigamy. Having burnt the letters received from wife number one and his

evidence to the contrary. Now, however, Judge Davis has in his possession a copv of the decree ot divorce
secured by Mrs. Hocking number une
and the date of that decree is previous to tho date of Hocking's second
marriage. Judge Davis, therefore,
declares thut Hocking hnd no intention of committing bigamy nor did he

Vancouver, B. .C, June 3.��� W. B.
Hocking is serving his term in Westminster jail for bigamy. He was tried
at the last fall aisi.es In Nelson. J.
D. Davis.Third judge of the district
court of Austin, Nevada, says Hooking should not be there as he is an
innocent man. Hooking declares that
Judge D.vis is appealing to the Minister of Justice for Canada to have
his case opened, tbe appeal being
made through an American Consul In
British Columbiu. Hocking seems to
tell a straight story and it is backed
up by letters written to him by Judge
Davis. The story is as follows:
Hocking lived in Austin, Nevada,
with his people but subsequently moved to Utah where he fell In love with
a girl and married her. The couple
returned to Austin to live. While
Hocking was working in a mine in
Nevada he was seriously injured by an
accident rendering him unfit to earn
a living. He became a subject of
charttv. His wife, who was fond of
society, grew discontented with her
lot and Hocking anxious to improve
matters came to British Columbia to
look for work he could perform in his
weak physical condition. While in
Canada bis wife wrote to him saying
that she had secured a divorce from
him for lack of support. He wrote to
his brothers asiting if this were true
and they sent word that Mis. Hocking bad told them the sume thing,
that she had secured a divorce from
him.    Hocking, thinking be was free.
VICTORIA    HAPPENINGS.

(SPECIAL. TO THE MINER.)
Victoria, B, 0., June 3.-��-Thc sitting of the Imperial board to enquire
into the claims of those malting appli-
caitons for Imperial pensions was held

COLUMBIA LAKE MURDER.
Further Particulars of the Tragedy in
Whicli a Chinaman Was Killed.
Peterborough, B. C, May 39.���The
Hon. Frances Lascelles shot and killed one of his Chinamen at his ranch
on Columbia lake. Tbe ranch is situated on the east side of the lake
within two miles of Canal Flat, and
Is practically isolated. It appeared
that Lascelles has been drinking very
heavily timing the pas*, few days und
acted queerly. Lascelles shot the
Chinaman outside of the Chinaman's
bedroom at about 4 c'clock this morning. Fred Kiinpton brought the particulars of the murder into town this
afternoon. Kimpton and John Lambert have been working on a now
houte for Lascelles for the past, month
or more. Kimpton heard the sho
fired and heard Lascelles say, "Jack ]
always   thought  you   were a	
���, and now I am bure of it. Now
Jack if your are a man apologize, or
shall I get another cartridge?" Lascelles then ran out of the house with
a shot gun iu his hand and made for
the mountain trail. Kimpton then
made for Thunder Hill and got a
horse, and came into town to report.
Lascelles has lived ut the ranch for
quite a few years antl has always
been considered very eccentric. Generally has a young man ns a companion, and always employs two China
men. He is the sou of an earl. He
evidently thought that he had shot
Jcbn Lambert according to his remarks after he fired thu shot. The
district, constable and coroner accompanied by several specials left for ill'
scene of the crime about 4 o'clock
this afternoon. This is the second
murder ln this distiict within a year.

No Reason Now Why Gold-
Diggers Should Go to
Seattle.
Vancouver, B.C., June 3.���The trade
features of tho week have been the
serious loss to Vancouver by the destruction by fire of Spicer's shingle
mill, the imminent danger of flood,
and the arrangements made by the
board of trade to handle gold from
Klondike as cheaply uh it could be
disposed of in Seattle. The building
were covered by insurance but a the
ml. was tunning night antl day, its
full cap.icity, and doing a prontali'e
business after threo year's sluek, thc
obliteration of the big mill for son-e
time to come is deplorable enough.
The merchants have contributed
handsomely toward the special assay
fund have advertised the fact extensively that Klontlikers need not go to
Seattle to sell their gold as they can
dispose of it as readily and advantageously in Vancouver. Th. difference
between the expense of getting tlio
gold redeemed by the Senttle mint
and by letting tho provincial assayer
and banks handle it in Vancouver antl
sond it by express to the Seattle mint
after being assayed und cashed here,
Is three-eighths of one per cent and
three eigliths_ of one per cent, on 8i,-
500,000 is 85,009. The board of trade
estimating that Vancouver woulfl get
that amount of gold ou! of 830,000,-
000 worth coming out understood to
collect the 5,000 to make up the loss
to tho bank In handling tlie gold.
That amount has already been sub
scribed and several hundred dollars
over. British Columbians could not
understand why it was that, the Dominion Government declined to establish an nssny office here when so persistently urged to do so nnd in their
annoyance they took this action" to
protect themselves. Victoria it is laid
will take similar action. Trade follows the gold is a saying thoroughly
believed in Vancouver and during the
last general elect'on "Maxwell antl
the mint," was a most potent catch
cry. Mr. Maxwell on being elected,
however, wub unable to do anything.
Thirty millions of dollars will come
out of Klonidka this year snd the
Yankee town of Seattle will boom
again in consquence. But thanks to
the enterprise of Vancouvur citizens
that city hopes to get a little of tho
gold this time and along with the
trade   that sticks   to the yellow dust.
Although at this writing theie is an
immipent danger of floods the high
water on the Fraser is still three fee'
lelow the high water mark of those
wot June days of '94. It appeared
at the first of the week that a flood
was inevitable but towards the latter
part of the week the melting of the
snow was checked by tho cool weather
In any event thc damage cant be so
greut as in former years and there
are more dykes and the old dykes are
made sttonger.
There are few complaints in the
business world. Three big shits
are in the harbor loading for St.
Michaels and the the whole Coast is
waking up to a summer's activity.
There are innumerable rumors of big
deals about, to be consummated and if
but a few of them materialize the
coast will rejp an enormous advantage. A large amount of real estate
and some farm lands are being sold to
English capitalists, and innumerable
smail craft are under construction in
the shipyard, for use in the northern tiatle. Tho local grocers have not
combined yet but many appear as determined as ever to do so. The promoters of the scheme stute that tbey
arc only waiting for several outsidois
to change their minds and come in
with them. It is stated that should
the combine be completed all goods
wilt be bought direct in Winnipeg,
Toronto antl Montreal. Jobbers here
ridicule those statements and say that
if it tame to open warfare the jobbers
might find it to their advantage to
combine and establish a mammoth store
Such a contingency, however, is a
long way oft* yet.

HKIII   schools.
There bas been friction between the
City Council of Vancouver aud the
School Hoard. The point was raised
that Iligh Schools are not a part of
he Public S.hool system, and the City
Solicitor gave it as his opinion that
the Vancouver High School need
not be maintained at the expense of
the city. The Sohool Board referred
the que.tion to the Attroney-General,
��fliq replies through the Superintend-
ent of Education that under the
provisions of section 7 of the Public
School Aft, High Schools become a
part of the Public School sys.
tem im much as any other Bchools
in tbe Piovince. The opinion of au
Attorney-General is of no inoro value
than that of any other person skilled
in the law.and those who are so minded may continue to hold the point us
still in dispute; but there is probably
no doubt that the Act was intended to
have the force thus given it, and that
as a matter ot fact fligh Schools rank
under its provisions its claimed.
The bickering over the question has
.auseu not a little disturbance of the
public mind In that city, and ineiii-
b__n of the Seliool Board are apprehensive that the efficiency of their recently established High School will
be prejudiced by it. If there is any
doubt of the actual status of U.gli
Schools under tbe Act, U will most
probably be resolved by the tin.e the
City Council and the School Board of
Vancouver have settled tbeir differences. That will be before Nelson
will be prepared to take advantage o'
its privileges to establish a High
School here, and with the knowledge
thus obtained we shall be in a posi
tion to start with a clear understanding of the situation. Vancouver is
hoping for great things from its
High School. It and its affiliation
with McGill College, together with
the Normal School is expected to
make the city an educational oentre,
which in time wi 1 attract a university. A present benefit is that it is
drawing pupils from outside points,
and . already there is evidence that
many families will settle there because of the educational facilities it
haB to offer. We in Nelson hope also
to make our city an educational centre, and look to our High School to
become a powerful factor towards
realising our expectations. If we
can make it and keep it a clean,moral
town, respectable families with boys
and girls lo rear will be encouraged
to take up  their   residence  with   us

In an earnestly   complaining  mood
the Cascade Record  asks:    "Why   did
the Dominion Government   turn down
British   Columbia   in   the  matter  of
railway bonuses, when over 83,000,000
were   distributed   among    the    other
Provinces?"     The   Dominion Government   did   not turn down lltitish Columbia in the matter of  railway bonuses; it   Was Mr. Dunsmuir   who   did
that,    by the   extraordinary   railway
policy he forced upon the Legislature.
The  Federal     Premier   declared   thc
Coast-Kootenay road was an undertaking that deserved Federal support,and
such support would   have   been forthcoming if the British Columbia Legislature had   not   made it    impossible |
to grant   it.    Dominion   bonuses   are'
voted to  railway   companies,   not  to
Provincial Governments. By the action
of the Legislature theie was no  railway company left in a position to ask
for a tonus.

Applicants for examination for
teachers' certificates ate made to pay
a fee of five dollars. We make education free, and tax those who are employed to disseminate it. This can
hardly be called consistent. At any
rate, the tax is one that might well
be dispensed with. Candidates foi
examination, the majority of whom
are young women who are obliged to
make their own way in the world, arc
not as a class overburdened with
wealth. On July 3rd examinations
will open in Nelson and will continue
for a week. Most of the candidates
will be from outside points. A tax
of a week's living in Kelson and railway fare to and fro, will be exaction

THK   AMENITIES.
The following letter, the joint production of the editor of The Tribune
and the Mr. Marks whese name is attached to it, appeared in The Tribune
of yesterday. We reproduce It as an
example of the amenities as understood and practised in Nelson:
To the Editor of The Tribune,���Per-
njitmeto correct The Miner in ils
obseriyitlon. last Saturday morning
regarding the changes now being
made in the Nelson Hotel. In the first
plflije, The Miner misrepresents me
in .egard to certain alleged expressions to Mr. (iilker. I think my reputation as a gentleman is well enough
established in Nelson to make a denial
of the profane expressions attributed
t._~3 scarcely ne.es.ary. Secondly,
The*Mine.'errs in its statement with
regard to Sir Wm. Van Home's first
visit to Nelson. Sir Wm. came here
by row boat and not by mule. In fact
there were ub mules in Nelson at the
time���the present staff of The Miner
not h��vjng reached here for many
years afterwards. Witn regard to
the mark's" on "the bar made
by tho mac wfth the chait, is
it not strange that The Miner reporter
should be so well acquainted with
that bar as to have observed those
mysterious indentations. Possibly
prolonged importuning the bartender
for'~~B- drinks may have sharpened
his ey .sight.    Yours, etc.
A. J. MARKS.
The excuse for this display of
blackguardism wai a column of humorous reminiscences suggested by the
improvementiB to the NelBon Hotel, in
wnich there was not a word intended
or ualculated to bu   offensive   to  any
A Chicago metciiant who prefers
newspaper advertising to posto.s, circulars, street Cars, etc., .ays that
even if be should be snre of the posting or distribution of all hi. matter
he could know nothing concerning the
people who might receive or read his
advertisement. It is practicable,
however, to form a clear ideo ol the
people who read newpapers.

What proved to be a more profitable find than gold happened thc other day to a traveller from aan Francisco, while at lunch in one of the
leading restaurants in Nelson. He
ordered a portion of Pumpkin pie,
when to his astonishment his appe-
titie, which he had lost fifteen years
ago in Arizona, suddenly returned to
him, with renewed vigor. The pie
had a very solid texture and a rich
mellow flavor. Thc cook informs ns
that it was made from "The Morse

old suspension bridge that crosses thc
Fraser on tho Cariboo road,over which
io many thousand feet have trumped
on the way to thc Northern .1 Hor
ado,has at last succumbed to thc highest flood that probably has ever heen
known on the great river Everywhere the cry is, where is it going
to stop? And when one thinks of the
vast stores of snow and ice gathered
up through many a long winter on the
towering peaks of the Rockies, and
now being sawn out nnd demolished
by tne hot wind and blazing sun, no
man can answer where."
The next high water before that, of
which there is any reliable ucount
waH in 18811, although the Indians tell
of ore sometime in the ''ill's in which
the rise was nearly twice that of '!I4.
The causes leading to a flood in this
country are so mncli more complicated
than In the east that it is very hard lo
fignre ahead In any way. In the east,
the country with little exception lies
below thc 3,(100 foot level. When
spring comes, if tho snow is deep,
and heavy rains set in eurly a flood
or freshet is certain. This, although
very destructive, seldom lasts more
than a few days at the outside and
c iming nt a time of year leforo fain -
Ing operations are commenced can be
putially guarded against. In IlritiBh
Columbia the conditions are very dilf-
erain, the amount of surface that is
abive nol, only the 2,()0ti foot level,
but also above 0,000 feet is immense.
The few large rivers are fed by innumerably .mall ones that take their
rise in terrific gorges and canyons
high in the mountains, from glaciers
and immense snow beds on which only
an extra hot spell of weather has any
effect. In early spring these stieams
are fed from the snows of the lowlands, but these last but for a few
weeks, th��p a seeming paradox is seen
iu the circumstances that the hotter
and drier the summer the greater the
floods. Bains mean cooler weather and
ccol weather in the valley means frost
and snow in the onountnins.
This year the rise of water has heen
very gradual, scarcely averaging five
nches a day. The spring has heen
cold and backward and even yet we
have had scarcely any really warm
weather. If hot weather had come
two weeks ago, after the heavy rains,
there would have been a Hood far In
excess of '04, but fortunately the
weather turning cooler prevented it.
The highest water mark of 'M was
reached on June 4th, Out it did
not start to rise until the middle of
May. Tills year the rise commenced
quite early, and unless exeptionally
hot weather should set in suddenly
now, the waters will pass off without
causing any further trouble. The
greatest amount of damage this year
in the vicinitv of Nelson was on Cottonwood creek, where a few shacks
were washed ont, and considerable
damage done to the Haker street
bridge, and-to the low track bridge.
of the C. P. R. Cottonwood creek,
however, has subsided,and is not likely to cause any further trouble, although a watchman is still kept on
duty 3ach night by the C. P. R. to notice any sudden rise.
1 On the Kootenay the water is now
witin three fee* of the grade in many
places, and several gangs of men are
being kept busy between here and
Robson repairing the grade where en-
rocaching waters have caused the sand
and earth to   crumble   and   cave   in.
Nelson's Lake park is growing beautifully smaller, the water now covering a large part of the sandy beach.
A further lise ot a few feet will submerge almost the whole of it.

WHAT THEY THINK���
Three citizens of Nelson, all ratepayers, were discussing the aetion of
the city authorities yesterday, in
tearing up the side walk on the north
side of Baker street between Ward
and Josephine streets. A portion of
the sidewalk wns only laid last summer and to all nppeaarnce is good
enough and wide enough to accommodate the travelling public and compares very favorably with other parts
of the city where they would be mighty proud of a sidewalk one third
as good as tbat whicli is now being replaced by a wider one.
NEW SCHOOL INSPECTOR���
It will be observed by the Gazette
notices that Mr. Allan Stewart has
been appointed* Inspector of Schools

will now bave headquarters at Nelson. The appointment is a popular
one." Mr. Stewart is a native of
Prince Edward Island and began
teaching some 15 years ago near Char-
lottetown. He moved from the Inland
to British Columbia about 11 years
ago, and has since been on the teaching staff in this city. Ilis brother,
Dan Stewart, is the well-known mer
chant tailor of Cordova street. The
new inspector is a married man and
has two boys, aged two and eleven
years respectively.���Vancouver World.
THEY WERE   HUNGRY.
A Team of Horses Quit Work Suddenly at Heal Time.   ,
At noon hour yesterday a ^team of
horses belonging to the Nelson
Freighting and Transfer Company entered a protest against working overtime. They were stamHng in front
of the Hume hotel, and while the
teamster was attending to some goods
i he had been leaving there the team
walked off to their boarding house.
The teamster implored them to wait
for him, but they toik an independent gait and started off to the stable
at a brisk run. On approaching the
stables on Ward street they noticed a
couple of ladies passing, and, to
avoid them, passed their stable an I
turned up Silica street, continued up
Josephine street where they were
brought to a sudden stand by coming
in contact wsth the telegraph pole.
One of the horses was thrown on its
back about six feet from the wagon.
On recovering! its centre of gravity
it looked around, and finding its mate
standing there, quietly walked over
to the pole ready to again attached to tbe wagon, and Hue Cowper's
bull-finch,
"Dick, although his way was clear,
Was much too generous nnd sincere
To leave hi6 friend behind."
Beyond a few scratches aod bruises,
and a broken wliilflc-tree no harm
was done.

SIMILKAMEEN PRODUCTS-
The only place at the present time
in the city where apples are to be
found is in the window of E. J. Ro-
bie. Although tbey are of a superior
kind nnd have a blush as handsome
as that of a pretty girl they arc not
for sale but are on exhibition as tlie
natural products of the Simlkameen
district. In addition to the apples
there is a big boulder of fine looking
coal and also samples of fodder, all
of which have been produced in the
same district. They are all fine samples of the natural results of the soil,
and they clearly indicate that the district is capable of producing food for
both man and beast, and fuel to cook
it with. It should be a decent place for
a white man to ruminate in wko pre
fers a pastoral life.
