Eleventh Year
PHILIPPINE
LEGISLATION
of the department   to have   oral hearings on matters of this kind.      He in-
j Minuted   that   lie   would   enterluin   a
written argument.
Congress Makes Regulations

Trade.
TELEGRAPH CO. EXPLAINS.
Commission Outlines Scheme
for Self Government.
Washington, Dec 18.���The hill to
provide revenue temporarily for the
Philippine islands passed the house
today by a vote of 103 to 128. In the
course nl the debate today the Denr>-
crats were several times i..unted with
their failure to present an alternative
proposition for the pending measure
lint just tefore the vote was taken
ca tho passage of the oi II, the attitude of the minority was defined in a
motion to reoommit, offered by Mr.
Richardson, the minority leader. The
proposition did not command a Re-
publican vote and three Louisiana
Democrats voted agair.st it.
The bill passed today imposes the
Dlnlgcy rates on goods entering the
Philippines from the United States.
It aluo provides for the collection of
tonnage taxes on ' vessels plying between the United StateB and thc
Philippines aud that foreign vessels
may ply between these ports until
January 1st, 11)05. The duties and
taxes collected under the provlsiors of
the bill shall go into the Philippine
treasury to be expended for the use an
benefit of the islands.
Provision for a permanent civil government and for much Important
legislation regarding the industrial
development of the Philipines is embodied in the annual ieport ot the
Philippine coiiiiNinission. It is declared by the commission that outside
of live provinces there is peace in the
Philippines. Taking up the question
���J_i of thc political foture of thc Philippines, it is declared that the theory
upon which the commission is proceeding is that the only possible
method of intruding the Philppines
people in methods of free institutions
and self government is to make a government partly of Americans and
partly of Filipinos with ultimate control in American hands for some time
to oome. Less tnan ten per cent of
the people speak Spanish and the
educated people under the influence
of Spanish teaching have but a faint
conception of real civil liberty and
the mutual self restraint required for
its maintenance. The commission have
already, however, established municipal suffrage in the pacified parts of
the islands and have limited the suffrage to those who can read and
"rite. English or Spanish or who own
pr.iperty of the value of $250, pay an
annual tax of 815 or have been municipal iilllcers.
The commission outlines a project
which in brief contemplates the continuance for two years of the existing
powers of the commission. Then a
repre eitative government is to be
formed, composed of a civil governor,
a legislative council and a popular
aisemblv. the powers of the latter
being closely limited so as to prevent
't from checking the government in
making the budget in fltsof paHSion or
through inexperience.
SCHLEY FILES EXCEPTIONS.
He Concludes That His Evidence Was
Not Given Due Weight.
Washington, Pec. 18 ���Admiial
Bohley, late this afternoon, through
his counsel presented to the Secretary
of the Navy his bill of exceptions to
'he tlndings of the majority of the
court of inquiry. The bill concludes
with the statement that the proceedings of the majority of the court were
Irregulars that Admiral Sohley's
rights have been prejudiced and hts
testimony in many particulars not
considered and that the evidence is
abolntely insufficient to sustain the
"piniou which has been rendered and
���hat therefoie a grave and irreparable
'"justice has been done Admiral
S('liley. Admiral Schley through
counsel also has seived notice that if
Admiral Sampson objects to the findings of Admiral Dewey, he will claim
'he right to be heard iu referenoe to
such objections. In regard to this
st claim, Secretary Long informed

I Marconi Had Decided to Cease Experiments liefcre They Took Action.
New York, Dec. 18.���The solicitors
of the Anlgo-Ainerican Telesrnph
compnny have made public the following statement: There seems to be
some misapprehension as to the action
of our clients, the Anglo-American
Telegraph Company, limited, with
respect to the experiments in wireless
telegraphy recently carried out at St.
John's, Nfld. by Mr. Marconi. In a
letter addressed to Mr. Marconi by the
company's legal advisers in Newfoundland,after stating the company's
intention to take the necessary steps
to secure a recognition of their rights
in the colony, the letter proceeds:
However, they (the company) instruct
ns to inform you that thoy are not
adverse to giving the most oareful
consideration to any proposals which
mny be put forward by you with a
view to the further continuance of
yonr work. A6 to thc statement said
to have been telegraphed from St.
John's by Mr. Marconi on December
17th to the effeet that in consequence
of the threatened legal proceedings of
the co-npany he was oompelied to discontinue wireless telegraphy tests
between England and the colony we
give the following extract from a letter of Mr. Marconi dated the previous
day, Dec. 10th, to the company's advisers: I may mention that orior to
the receipt of yiur letter I had decided to discontinue the tests and to remove the instruments tomorrow.
MARCONI TELLS HIS SIDE.
Reaffirms Previous Statement o( Being
Ordered to Leave.
St. Johns, Nfld., Deo. 18,���Regarding the statement given out by the
solicitors of the Anglo-American Telegraph Co., Mr. Marconi explains that'
the letter from the Anglo-Amerioan"
company to him whioh Is referred to'
therein was only its second letter to
him and was written after the substance of their first letter to him had
been given to the world from here,
lie explnined further that this fiist
letter was such that the outside world
was under no misapprehension as to
its purpose. It was served on bim
last Monday. It stated unequivocally
that unless the Anglo-American Co.
received an intimation from him
(Marccni) that same day that he
would abandon his work and remove
his apparatus forthwith, the Anglo-
American oompany would institute
legal proceedings to restrain him from
fuither work and would hold him
responsible for any damages tbe
Anglo-American company might sustain.
Upon receipt of this letter Mr.
Marcmi wrote the Anglo-American
company saying that he did not wish
to interfere with their rights and remarking that he was about to remove
his apparatus.
Mr. Marconi means, although he
did not so specify, that he was going
to Cape Spear to ereot a pole there.
The Anglo-Amerioan company then
rejoinedwith its second letter, which
is thc one quoted in the statement in
question. This letter wns served on
Marconi after tho press of Great
Britain and the United States had
pronounced upon tho attitude of the
Anlgo-Amerlcan company as disclosed
by its first letter. In its seoond letter
this company offered to consider proposals from Marconi for a compromise. This led to opening negotiations which are now in progress in
London between the Anglo-American
and the Marconi company.

DISASTROUS WRECK
AT FIVE MILE POINT
Heavy Freight Train Gets Beyond Control
and Speeds Down Grade at Seventy
Miles an Hour.
Crew Escapes Miraculously.-Engine and
Five Cars Now a Heap of Ruins.
Loss Will be Heavy.
Last evening one of the most peculiar and destructive train wrecks that
has probably occurred in the province
took place at Five-Mile point, in
which although theie was considerable
damage done, no loss of life occurred.
As freight No. su was coming in
from Spokane, abont two miles out-
sine of the mountain siding the engineer started to put on the air brakes,
as there were thirteen heavily loaded
cars behind, and a grade cf two and
one-half per cent, for the next eight
miles. He found that the air would
not work, and signalled for handbrakes. The two brakemen on the
train commenced to set them but the
track being frosty they did not have
the slightest effect, and the train shot
swiftly past the siding. Swifter and
swifter it moved, and tbe engineer
found that he could not make the
slightest use of the air brakes. In an
incredibly short time the train neared
.the foot of the grade at Five-Mile
.point, where the men knew that the
switch would be closed and it must
leave the track. The engineer ordei-
ed the fireman to jump and soon after
while striking at the brake fell off
himself. By a miracle the men did
not strike rock, although jutting rock
ledges were everywhere, and both
although badly bruised and cut escaped without serious injury. A little
way above this Conductoi Hibbard
and one of the brakemen got the
oaboose loose and the hand brake held
thiB.
Brakeman Griffin, who was next to
the engine when it passed the moun
tain siding, said he staited to pray
but did not get out more than two
words, however. While he was saying
those two words he got six pairs nf
brakes set, and was on the seventh
car whioh wbb loaded with heavy
machinery when the switch was
reached and when his car stopped,
which fortunately for him it did right
side up, he olinging to the brake
wheel with badly torn hands. At the
foot of the grade is a sharp curve,
about a hundred yards before the
jTiitch, and at the end of the curve is
the operator's oflice and beyond it a
large semaphore. As the tiain passed
this the last oar, which wbb loaded
with apples swung off, it just brushed
the cabin but it tore out one corner,
shifted the platform and building
abont six feet, and left the building
so askew that it would puzzle the
builder to lecoguize it. It was set on
fire but that was soon extinguished.
A few leet further it struck the heavy
semaphore the main shaft of wbioh
was a timber nine by nine inches and
twenty feet high, it snapped this off
like a match, throwing it over SO feet,
the Bmaller timbers were not to be
seen.
At the switch tbe train left the
track, plowing its way for a couple of
hundred yards till it struck a big pile
of boulders, and stopped, or hs much
of it as had ccme that far, within
tweke feet of the section house, in
which were five men, four of whom
were asleep. Tbe cars then piled on
top of it.nu less than three tiers high,
with the fourth car standing on end.
Tbe other cars were more or less damaged,   but   strange   to say, the   track
is very little torn up.    It was calcu-
ted that at the time   it reached   the
itch tbat it was  travelling   in   the
ighborhood of seventy miles an
hour.
The escape of the operator, who was
standing on the opposite corner from
where the car struck it was marvellous. He said he was writing at
the desk when he heard a slight
rumble.      De was thinking  "Tbat is
was
lat
sw
ne
the freight," but before the thought
had found expression there came a
terrific crash and everything in the
cabin changed position, A heavy
letter press, whieh had been standing
where it received the full shock, flew
across tbe room, and was jammed in
the woodwork. At the section house
one of the men was preparing
lunches. He heard an unusual noise
and looking ont saw the engine swing
around tbe curve above the operators
cabin, with streaks of flame flying far
behind from every wheel. He shouted
and jumped for the door but in the
few seconds tbat it took him to get it
open and to get outside tne engine
had plowed across tbe intervening
space, and ho saw the terrible panorama uf iron and wood being crumpled up like paper within * few feet
of him, while the air was full of flying fragments.
Engineer Cywersler and Fireman
Uockwell owed their escape partly to
heavy woolen caps they were wearing,
which greatly piotected their heads as
they were burled along the ground.
Immediately on word reaching the
city Trainmaster Hamilton, and Road-;
master J. S. Lawrence with Locomotive Foreman Patterson and a large
crew of men left on a wrecking train
for the scene of the disaster, in order
to clear the C. P. R. tracks of the
wreck. The switch where the train
left the track was at tbe junction of
the Great Northern and C.P.U. tracks,
and as it was seen tnat it would take
till some time tbis evening to have the
tracks open, arrangements were made
to have the barge brought up from
Procter by tbe Nelson,so that the ears
can be shipped direct from the oity,
instead of from Procter as is usually
done. The Great Northern has no
wrecking crew here so word was Bent
to Northport from which point a crew
was soon despatched. From tbe operator's shack to the section house the
ground iB covered with splinters,
while numberless token show the ter-
r i f 13 speed at which the train was
traveling.
The enigneer and fireman were
brought to Nelson on a special sent in
by Mr. Hamilton, and were taken to
an hotel.
Several experienced trainmen wbo
viewed the wreck said that it was the
most complete smasbup they bid ever
witnessed, and commented on tbe
escape of all on board as almost
incredible.
BIRMINGHAM FOR WAR.
By
Lloyd   George Precipitates a  Riot
Calling a Pro-Boer Meetiug.
London, Ceo. 18.���David Lloyd
George, M. P., speaking in Birmingham town hall tonight precipitated a
scene nnpreoedented in tbat city since
the Aston park riots. The majority
of the audience were hostile to the
speaker and were enraged by his pio-
Bocr and nuti-Chamberlain utterances.
They rushed the police cordon guarding the platform. In the meanwhile
thc building was beselged from the
ontside by a mob of several thousand
people who smashed windows anl
tried to force the doors which had
been barricaded, they fusi laded the
audience with stores thrown through
the windows. The police reserves
were tumed out and succeeded in dispersing the mob after repreatcd
charges. A number of persons were
injured and ihe town hall was completely wrocked, and but a single
.viiiiiow was left whole.
Crowds were awaiting admission to
the building long before the doom of
the    town   hall   were   opened,     Tbe
building   filled   quickly   and it   was
immediately seen that the trouble wus
coming.       Cheers   were     raised   for(
"Joe" and a white flag was   unfurled
aind deafening shouts of "traitor" as
Dr. Lloyd George   and his friends  appeared on the platform.    All attempts
at speech making   were   futile   owing!
to the oontinuance direction   of   hiss-,
ing, hooting   and   siuging.     In    the|
meantime the enormous crowd outside
the   building bad   become more noisy
and   more     menacing.      Presently   a
stone came through   a   window,   this
caused   a   stampede   among the occupants   of   the gallery,   from this time
forward pandemonium reigned in   the
building and ugly rushes   were   made
for tbe platform, the police were soon
overpowered.
Dr. Lloyd Gorge and bis fnends
wero compel 1 d to retreat to an inner
oom for safety. They were unable to
leave the building for fear of mob
violence and were thus kept prisoners
until a late hour when Dr. Lloyd
George disguised as a chief constable
left the town hall with a possee of
policemen. Many constables were
seriously injured in their attempts to
olear the street. It is rumored that
one civilian has died of injuries
received.

issued a general statement of its mission of peace. Senator Maroua A.
Manna was chosen as its chairman
with Samuel Gompers second in command. It retained its connection

Tbis committee shall be known as
the industrial department of the
National Civil federation. The scope
and province of this department shall
be what may seem best to promote industrial peace to be helpful in establishing rightful relations between employers and workers by its good
offices; to endeavor to obviate and
prevent strikes and look outs; to aid
in renewing industrial relaticna
where a rupture has occurred.
That at all times representatives of
employers and workers, organized or
unorganized, should confer for the
adjustment of difference or disputes
before an acute stage is reached and
thus avoid or minimize tbe number o
strikes or lockouts.
That mutual agreements as to conditions under which labor shall be
performed should be encouraged and
that when agreements are made the
terms tberefore should be faithfully
adhered both in letter aud spirit by
both parties.
This department either as a whole,
or a sub committee by it appointed,
sha'l when requested, act as a form
to adjust and decide upon questions
at issue between workers and their
employees, provided in its opinion the
subject is one of sufficient importance.
This department will not consider
abstract industrial questions.
Tbis department assumes no power
of arbitration unie9s suoh powers be
conferred by both parties to a dispute.

PROPOSED ELECTtUC PLANT.
There arc a few who In discussing
the electric light bylaw look at tbe
matter from only one point of view.
They believe btrongly in municipal
ownership of utilities and they affeot
to fear if the city does not eiect a
plant at Ilonnington immediately that
it will in time lose its right to supply
the residents of Nelson with light
and power, hence they insist on the
immediate passage of the bylaw,
which provides for thc erection of the
plant. The Miner is unalterably opposed to the city ever sui rendering the
rights, whieh it is possessed of, of
supplying its residents with light and
power, but considers that it would be
the height of folly at present to contract a debt of 8150,000 and increase
the tax��s on realty and improvements
to a point where such taxation would
be burdensome. The condition of the
mining industry, and particularly of
the silver-lead portion of it, is not
nearly as bright as it has been with
silver and lead at low water mark,but
this 6tate of affairs may not long prevail as the tide of prices is liable to
flood at any time. Notwithstanding
these conditions and the desire of all
conscientious rate payers to be able to
pay when the time for settlement
comes there are a few who are so unreasonable, so unwise, so reckless of
consequences, that they advise the
passage of the electric bylaw at this
time and in the face of sooh inans
picious circumstances. Conditions do
not justify suoh a course.
In another column, in this issue,
will be found a communication from
Alderman Selous whieh ii a fair
synopsis of the situatun. In the flrst
place the title for the proposed site of
the power plant has not yet been
secured by lhe city, it may be obtain
ed next year and it may not at all. A
site is all important and before fur
tber steps are taken a site at least
should oe firmly secured by thc oity.
It would be tbe most egregious folly
to adopt any ether course. An est)
mate by a competent electrical engi
neer should be made The estimate
which the city has was made by the
city engineer, who is not an electrical
engineer. No oylaw for the purposes
of borrowing $l.r)0.()00 for an electrical
plant or any other sum should be
adopted nntil a proper estimate has
been made by an electrical enignecr
The borrowing uf the additions
$150,000 would increase the city taxes
to a burdensome point. This year the
real estate taxes are 1 5-8 per cent.
If the bylaw is adopted they will be
increased to 2 11-4 per cent. When it is
eonsidered tnat in some parts of the
world 3 per cent, is considered fair
interest on investments a tax as high
as this would be onerous. It would
depreciate the value of property. In
a year from now conditions may be
changed considerably for the better
and thc population of Nelson be
largely Increased and the outlook
so much brighter as to warrant the
expenditure of whatever sum may be
needed for the installation of a
plant. The cost of maintenance,
according to tho figures submitted by
Alderman Selous will be J88.0M) per
year, which would be out of all pro
portion to the earning capacity of a
lighting plant in a city of the size of
Nelson. It seums evident, if thc
figures given by Alderman Selous are
correct, that Neliou will need considerable addition to her population before she can afford to put in so expensive a plant.
The few, with one idea, who cannot
see that theie are two sides to every
question, of course, desire to push and
hurry the city into adopting a measure which would be hurtful lo its best
interests, as it would Increase the rate
of taxation nnd might serve to put a
white elephant on the hands of the
municipality. The ratepayers, wbo
have to meet the bills and who wisely
look ahead, we believe, will not be
cozened into embarking in an enterprise which promises to work hardship and distress to them. It is easy
to talk,  but the bills will bave to be
naid by the taxpayers, and as they
are the only one* who will bave tbe
right to vote on tbe elcjtric light
bylaw we firmly believe that they
will make short work of it and that
they will poll a large vote against it.
BLACKSTOCK    WAILS.
When    indviduals     in    control   of
ines make failures through their
lack of competency they are always
ready and willing to attribute their
lack of success to any other cause but
their own incompetency. T. G. Black-
stock at a recent meeting of the Centre Star Mining Co. attributed the
failure of the mine to be more productive to the defective mining laws ul
thc province passed at the instigation
of unions. The provincial administration, he declared, had succeeded in
crushing the li'e ont of the mining
ndustry in British Columbia and in
damaging the province in tbe eyes of
llritish capital���the miners had taken
one portion of the product and the
government had Beoured the rest for
itself.
While it Is true that the government has increased the tax on the
gross output of the mines, less the
freight and treatment charges, from
one to two per cent., still this does
uot constitute the large pottion of the
mines' revenue that Mr. Blaokstock
complains of. It would be a better
and more equitable method to tax the
profit of the mines instead of the gross
output and one per cent, would be
quite enough. The B. 0. mining laws
are not perfect, nor are they anywhere
else, but wc do not believe that they
have been sufficiently burdensome to
cause the Centre Star to be a partial
failures Moreover, wc believe that
there are a number of mining men in
this province who, were they given
the opportunity, could take charge of
the Centre Star and make it yield a
satisfactory profit. Itisal/vays the
incompetent who make excuses
fortheirshortcomings and who endeavor to throw the blame where it does
not belong. The Centre Star is a
splendid mine, it adjoins the famous
Le Boi and has an extension of tho
ore snoots of tbe latter, and under a
more progressive management we believe it oould be made one of tbe most
profitable mines in British Columbia.
How is it that tbe Ymir, the
Rambler-Cariboo, the Goodenough,
the B. C. and a number of other mines
yield a profit under the existing mining laws while Mr. Blaokstock whines
about them. Tho laws are not perfect
and we believe that they could be improved. The Miner also believeB that
the mining industry, at least While it
is In its infaney, as lode mining is at
present in this province, should be
burdened as little aj possible with
taxes, but still we da not think the
condition warrants tbe lugubrious
wailingsofT. O. Blackstock. Bad
he and the other directors of the company more knowledge of mining than
they have they would long since have
had the Center Star in a much better
conditon than it is.
It   would have been much better for
the mining   industry   if   tbe   Goode
ham-Blackstook  syndicate  had   never
embarked in mining here      The con
stant whining,   which tbey  in   some
wny have  influence   enough   to  bave
published   and   which   have    weight
apparently  with   some   people,   have
done much more harm  to  the country
than   the   money whicb they have invested   in   mining   has   benefited  it
They should bave stuck to tbe business
in which they made their money,   the
manufacturing and selling of whiskey
They appear   to   mucb better   advan
tage   as   vendors  of stimulants  than
as mining magnate!.
EDITORIAL NOTES.
Washington is enjoying a marble
boom and a number of companies
have recently been floated for tbe pur
poses of developing quarries of mar
bile in Stevens county. There exists
in Stevens county a number of veins
of high grade marble and serpentine.
One of the marble companies had an
exhibit at tbe Pan-American exhi
oition and it astonished tbe eastern
marble experts, who declared the marble equal to the finest imported from
Europe and superior to the marble
tjk.Mi from thc eastern quarles. There
are some splendid deposits of marble
in the Kootenays and one, nf known
g. >nd quality on Lake, Kootenay opposite Kaslo, from which the stone for
the postoffice is being taken. These
deposits should be opened ana utilized. Local experts say that British
Columbia marble is of an excellent
quality and that considerable of it
could be marketed in tbe ooast cities
and elsewhere.
A case of considerable importance
to the shaicholders in the London and
(Hobo corporation was recently heard
in tbe British courts. This was an
action commenced by the liquidators
of the London and Globe against
members of the so-called Lake View
syndicate, iu which the defendants appealed against orders made to grant
inspection of certain books of
accounts, etc, It is alleged that the
syndicate was formed under agreement with  Mr. Whltaker Wright, the

There is nothing like Asthmaleue, I

The Rev. O F. WELLS, of Villa Bidge,

tell you how thankful I feel for the good
derived from it. I was a slave, chained
with pntrid sore throat and asthma 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 overspoken
yourselves, but resolved to give it a ti ial.
To my astonishment the trial acted like a
charm.   Send me a full size bottle.

wonderful effect of your Asthmalene, for the cure of Asthma, My wife has
been afflcted with spasmodic asthma for thf- past 12 years. Having exhausted
my own skill as well as many others, 1 chanced to see your Bign upon your

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

THE JURY DISAGREE.
Hall vs LnBan Case Will do Iiefore
Another Jury in January.
The Hall vs. Lullau case was continued at the County court yesteiday
and occupied the whole session. The
case was submitted to the jury at 5.15
o'clock am; an adjournment was
taken until 7.40 that the verdict
might be arrived at in that time.
The chief evidence submitted was
that of the defndant and H. Harris,
chemist at the Hall Mines smelter.
The latter gave scientific evidence as
to the effect of sulphurous acid on
plated surfaces and the damage done
by such corrosion. The summing up
by his honor was exceedingly short.
He asked the jury to disabuse their
minds of the supposition that the
publio were divided into two hostile
camps on the question involved in the
case before them. They had nothing
to do with the quettion of which disinfectant should have been used ; each
of the oommon ones had its advocates
and both probably were effective. The
only question was whether there had
been carelessness in the use of the one
employed. If the person who used
the disinfectant had been careless and
negligent he was responsible for the
damages caused. They might also
consider whether the plaintiffs had
done all that was possible to be done
to protect their property from ir.ss, as
they knew the premises we:e tu be
disinfected. The facts on which they
were asked to decide were submitted
to them in tne form of questions, or,
his honor Btated, it would be allowable for them to bring in an open
verdict.
The essential points ofthe oase were
summed up in the following questions:
1. Did the defendants unlawfully
and without authority enter upon the
plaintiffs' premises?
2. Did the defendant act In a careless manner in fumigating the plaintiffs' office upon April 8th, 1001?
3. If so, what amount of damage
did the plaintiffs suffer from such
carelessness and negligence?
4. Could the plaintiffs by the exercise of ordinary oare and precautions
on their part hive avoided the damage
complained of?
Tbe court then adjourned till 7.40.
On resuming at that hour the jury
wus called in when the foreman stated
that they had not fully agreed npon a
verdict but thought that they could
soon upon being further instructed
upon the bearing i'l a certain paragraph in the regulations of the provincial hoard of health. Bis Honor
stated that tbe section mentioned had
nothing to do with the case.
After considering the rase for another half hour the foreman reported
that they were unable to agree upon
any one of the questions submitted to
them. The judge suggested that.they
take another half hour but the foreman stated that if they considered the
matter all night there was little hope
of their arriving at a verdict. The
jury were then dlscharxcd und his
honor announced that the case would
be tried again on January 21st.

through these trial shipments.

ELECTBIC LIGHT BYLAW.
A Few Pertinent Remarks by Alderman Harold Selous.
Editor Miner,���I notice in yonr
issue ot Tuesday last a letter from a
,.aU. payer who suggests tbat the public are not fully informed on the subject  of  the    proposed   electric   light
bylaw.
If tbis be the case perhaps a brief
renew of a few facts and figures may
not be out of place.
Bylaw 102 proposes to borrow 8150,-
000 to ouild a plant on a ceitaiu site
ou Ibe Kootenay river,
This site has not yet been secured
by the city. We may get it tomorrow.
VVe may get it next year. We may
never get it at all.
The estimate of $l!>0,000 deals only
with this particular site and does not
apply to any other.
Tbis estimate is given by onr city
engineer, who is cot an electrical
engineer.
This estimate has not been checked
or confirmed by any electri'al engineer.
In borrowing this sum of 8150,000
the city practically reaches the limit
of its borrowing powers. So that if
bv any mishap or miscalculation the
plans eould not be completed for the
sum voted, the wholo works would
probably have to lay idle and incomplete till such time as the city could
scrape together enough money from
current revenue to finish the job.
Tbis year our real estate taxes are
about 1 5-8 per cent, and many of ns
find them as high as we want them.
If this further sum of $150,000 is borrowed our taxes will b? about 2 3-4
per cent.
Tbe cost of maintenance of this
plant will be out of all proportion to
its eaining capacity. The cost of
wages will be practically the same as
for a plant of two, four or six thousand horsepower. Below I give a
rough estimate of the cost of our
elctric ligbt systems under the proposed bylaw.
Interest and   sinking   fund   on
$150,000       (proposed     loan),
870,0(10 (old loan) 818,750
Salary of supt. in town     1,500
" ''      at works     1,500
"     of three   electricians  at
8100 per month     .    3,000
Salary three helpers at f 75     2,700
Incidental expenses, repair, oil,
etc     2,500
Depreciation,   5   per  cent,   on
$1.'.0,000     7,500
838,050
The organ that opposed the
Councils' proposal to purchase what
additional power It required, and give
everybody good light and make 50
cents on the dollar besides, now advocates the erection of this plant, appeals to the publio to vote for it on
the ground that it will increase the
value of their real estate.
It pats itself on the back, calls
itself progressive and its opponents
relrogradists, hiiits that its editor and
supporters aie the only people who
have tbe interests of Nelson at heart,
or indeed have any interests in Nelson
at all.
And conducts its campaign by the
means of throwing boquets at itself
and mud at its opponents
I think, however, Mr. Editor, that
when the public realize that bylaw 102
is fcr the purpose of erecting a plant
that will cost us between 835,000 to
840 000 a year to run,
That we don't  know  where we oan
Thnt we don't know   when   we  can
build it.
build it.
That we don't know what it will
oost to build it.
That the public will have no diffi
cnlty in making op its mind how to
vile on Bylaw No, 102. I am, sir,
faithfully,
HAROLD SELOUS.

METAL MARKET.
Copper has taken another tumble on
tlio London market and has sold as
low as ��10 1-2 to ��50 1-4. Tbe decline
was owing to the fears of an exported
break in Amalgamated Copper, but
prices eventually hardened somewhnt.
The closing quotation was ��50 1-2 to
SSI. In New York the price was
115.37 1-2 to 815.82 ]-? lor lake and
���15 for casting. The production of
copper in the United States for the
month of November was 21,728 tons
"inking a total for tho past eleven
months of 245,456 tons against 246,003
Ions for the corresponding period of
last year,
Lead was dull ln London at ��10
Ms., and in New York the price is
now four cents.

This will be thc
231st Christmas
Which this Company, who are doing business over half a continent,
has assisted its Friends and Customers to celebrate and enjoy, and
this  is the
FOURTH CENTURY.
in which we are doing business. Our long experience and our capital
obviously give us an immense advantage in supplying the very best
v?lue in everything to our patrons. This year we have made special
efforts and have now a collection of
Christmas Goods
which cannot be surpassed in any city in Canada.
Our Dry Goods Department
is well worthy of its reputation,   and is replete with  articles suitable
For Presents for Men,
Women and Children.
No pains have been spared to decorate in honor of " Good Old
Christmas," and an inspection will please you as well as enable you to
select exactly what you want at
Most Reasonable Prices,
We cannot commence to enumerate, but would draw special attention
to our
Toys and Dolls
and to our Ladies' and Gentlemen's Ties which we have in all shades,
shapes and pattern*, as well as to our magnificent .Jine of Handker-.
chiefs in linen and"silk, of Gloves of every description, including the
Paris Price Kid Gloves, and of Ladies' Blouses, etc., etc. Every conceivable article necessary or ornamental for Ladies' and Gentlemen's
attire is here to choose from. There is nothing a woman can wish for
in the way of Dress Goods that this department cannot supply, and at
a saving. The very newest and most exquisite weaves and colorings
will be found in this vast collection, and the quantity ^ill astonish you
as much as the quality and little prices.
Groceries.
With Groceries and Eatables quality is everything. Price is a
consideration, but its importance is second to that of quality. You
must have the finest and freshest foodstuffs obtainable, because it is
healthiest, because, in fact, in the long run it pays best. But when
you secure "top notch" quality at the minimum reasonable price,
nothing more can be wanted. This is the combination you obtain at
these Stores���quality lhe highest, prices the lowest.
Our Christmas Specialties
include a direct shipment of Peek, Frean & Co's Biscuits, Pascall's
Sweets, Rowntree's Confections, Christie's and McCormick's Fancy
Biscuits, English Plum Puddings, French Crystalized Fruits, Gor-
ganzola, Roquefort and English Stilton Cheese.
Crockery, China and Glassware.
��� This depa-itment is very complete. Dinner Sets, Tea Sets and
Bedroom Sets in all qualities and at all prices. We have a nice line
oTspeciaTI)'selected "little things", very suitable for presents, and a
choice collection of more expensive goods for' the same purpose.
Cups and Saucers, Plates, dishes, Platters, etc., of every description
and style. Fancy Glass and China Ware, genuine Cut Glass Goods,
both for use and ornament. Anything and everything required in
these lines for the kitchen and diningroom is here.
Our Wine and Liquor Department
consists of direct importations from all over the wcrld.
DEPEND UPON IT,
vou may, we can assure you. Our Liquors are worthy of every dependence. For years
and years we have been selling Liquors, and during this time we have built up a fortress
of confidence in us and our lines which is absolutely unassailable. Vou run no risk
in purchasing from us. The quantity and variety of Liquors which you can obtain
here are larger than you could secure elsewhere in Western Canada- so great indeed
is the variety that we believe we can satisfy almost any individual fancy in the way
of Wines and Liquors, The least you can do at any rate is to give us a trial order,
and thus allow us to demonstrate the advantage of trading with us.
Prices Right in all Lines.   Watch Our Windows.

Nelson Lodge No. 85, K. of P.,
will not meet till January 13th on
account of the Cluistmas and Nes
Year's holidays.
A number of Italian laborers who
had been employed on the construction woik on tlie Lardo railway came
in on the Nelson yesterday.
J. Hawkins, who was the first
employe of the Tramway company in
Nelson, and who has been well known
and popular through his courtesy to
passengers on the company's ears,
leaves on Saturday, having decided to
return to his old home at Ottawa.
Nothing has been heard lately as to
the formation of a branch of the Y.M.
C.A., of which it was understood that
a committee had already made a number of arrangements. Whether there
is a demand for the Y.M.O.A. or not
there should be a desire ior a gymnasium in Nelson.
The freight shipments over thc
Crow's Nest line are very heavy, the
barges between Procter and Kootenay
Landing handling sixty cars each way
per day. A large amount of this consists of coal and coke for the Ilonn-
dBry and Trail smelters, but shipments of ordinary merchandise arc-
also heavy. In the yards at Nelson a
large fielght traffiu is in progress and
railway business generally is said to
be very good, although the holiday
passenger tiade has not started yet.
Engine !>S4 which had not been off
the track for nearly n week yesterday
morning jumped lhe track on the
smelter switch near the top, totally
blocking all traffic to the smelter for
the day. It was found necessary to
huild another line of track ior a considerable distance along the spur to
handle the engine. This engine is an
extremely heavy one aud is the only
engine that can successfully handle
loadel cars up the steep grade leading
to the smelter, but it has established
a record for jumping the track and
getting into trouble that would be
hard to beat
D, 3. Robertson and Co. yesterday
received a shipment of palms from
Florida. These palms make the most
artistic deeoratioi possible for a residence, as they set off a room or hallway as no other (lower or plant uan.
They are graceful and artistic in appearance and in many places they arc-
preferred for decorative purposes to
any other form of flora. It is the intention of Robertson and Co. to distribute these palms uniong their customers between now nnd ( hri.-.tinas.
Those who purchase IS worth of goods
or over are entitled to one until they
are all gone. The first to purchase
wiU be given a choice of all the
palms on hand, nnd those who desire
to secure one should go to the store of
D. J Robertson and Co. early today or
the first thing tomorrow, and secure
one. It Is within the realm of possibility that thev will all bo gone by
tomorrow,     as   the   desire   to   secure
palms,   ami particularly  the Florida
palms,    is   very great.     The store   is
located on Vernon street near Ward.

SWEET CAPORAL  CIGARETTES
THE UNION JACK.
It Will Soon Be Added To Ymir's
Shipping Mines.
One of the finest specimens of gai
ena ore ever brought into Ymir is
now on exhibition in A. B, Buck-
worth's office window, marked Ore
From the Union Jack Mine, says tbe
Ymir Mirror. The Union Jack mine
was recently secured by a strong
Cincinnati company known aa the
Active Gold Mining company, limited,
of B. C, of whioh Paul Victor Loth,
who visited this camp in October last,
is secretary-treasurer. On the 6tb of
November a force of miners started to
work under tbe superintendence of
Dougald Cameron, one of tbe original
locators of the property. At present,
two tunnels are being opened up, one
on the Union Jack claim and one on
tbe Queen claim. The ore on exhi
bition is from the Queen ledge, and
Mr. Cameron states that thc new find
was quite unexpected, as he did not
hope to encounter much ore until the
tunnel was driven in about 100 feet
from where it was started. In a few
days rails and cars will be taken up
to tbe mine, and the Active company
are figuring at present on Installing
motive power for machine drills. The
Union Jaak will soon be added to tbe
shipping mines of Ymir, and Paul
Victor Loth and his associates are to
be congratulated upon their good
fortune in aoquiring this valuable
property. The success of tbe Union
Jack is assured, ard with another
paying property added to tbe present
list, Ymir will beoome mure popular
with men who have money to invest
in sound mining propositions.

tions in the vicinity of Madoc are io

continuously, and one of tbem, the
Canadian Gold Fields mine, at Deloro,
has the distinction of being the only
mine in America which is producing
arson io, Gold and arsenic are being
produced from the same ore, which
is a raic thing in mining. Mr.
Carter reports that the Belmont mine
