The Unexpected Question of
Buying Transformers
Gomes In.
A meeting of the city council was
held last evening to consider the new
light ty-law. All the aldermen, with
the ixccption of Alderman Irving
were present. A letter was read frcm
Mr. Downie, superintendent of this
division of the C. P. R., relating to
the nomina' rental which would be
chargd the city for the use of the land
on which the city weigh scales stand
and also for the crossing of the city
Sewer under the railway right of
way.    This was read and accepted.
A letter was read from nssistnnt-
alcctrican, J. A. Sproat, stating that
as he had decided to take up the study
of medicine at Trinity University,
Toronto, he would not restme his
position at th�� power house.
On motion of Aid Selous, seconded
by Aid.Gillette, the council then went
Into committee of the whole to consider the light ty-law. The draft
of the proposed by-law was then read
clause by clause. The first two
clauses, relating to the quantity of
power the city would take and the
oompany deliver, and the delivering
of tho power through the sub-station,
Were passed and accepted. On clause
3, it was stated that the city should
supply "all the pole lines, transformers, and other fitting necessary
for the reduction of the pressure from
2,000 volts to a suitable voltage for
the furnishing of incandescent Iigts, "
an objection came up. This was that
for the city to supply the transformers
that would be required the cost would
be at IcaBt $2,000. These transformers
would have to be purchased or else
the city would have to take down all
its copper wires and substitute wires
suitable fur handling the alternating
current, the same as is at present supplied by its ore alternating machine.
Aid. Selous stated that he had not
figured on the purchase of t��e trans
oimers, as knowing that the transformers had come with the last
machine purchased he had supposed
that the others were provided in the
same manner. He asked Electrician
McPhee, who was present throughout
the meeting what the value of the
copper wires would be. Mr. McPhee
said that the city had at present
88,000 worth of copper wires up.
After a little discussion it was seen
that as the transformers would always
bo useful it would le as well to get
them.
On clause four, which related to the
prices to be charged tbe different
classes of consumers, a long and fruitless discussion followed the reading of
it. It was seen that with the new
light the old rates and terms were not
compatible, as the terms with the
power company allowed for a 24 hour
service. It whs decided that banks
should be classed with residences, as
far as rates went. The subject of
putting i In meters also oame up for
consideration, Out although it was
seen that the moters would settle the
most difficult of the points that had
oome up, it was decided that it would
not be wise for the oity to incur so
much extra expense at present.
This clause was finally loft, on
motion of Aid. Selous, seconded by
Aid. Patterson to the mayor and the
city electrioian to decide and report
on at the next meeting cf the council.
In the clause relating tu how many
free lights the city should have Aid.
Gillette objected to the limit being
put at fifty lights for the municipal
buildings, and after this had been
enquiro into the number in the agreement was ohanged to 75.
The remainder of the clauses were
accepted without comment, except a
few questions from the aldermen as to
the meaning or scope of some of the
provisions. On motion cf Aid. Selous,
seconded by Aid. Patorson the committee then rose and reported progress
to the council. The council then adjourned till Monday, October 28th,
when the date for the voting on the
by-law   will bo set.
First Time This  Feat Was
Done Without Instant
Death.
Niagara Falls, N, Y.,Oet. 24.--Mrs.
Annie Edson Taylor, 50 years old,
went over Niagara Falls on the Canadian side this afternoon and survived,
a feat never before accomplished, and
indeed never attempted except in the
deliberate commission of suicide.
Not only did she survive but she
escaped without a broken bone, her
only apparent injury being a scalp
wound one and a half inches long, a
slight concussion of the brain, some
shock to her nerves and bruises about
the body. She was conscious when
taken out of the barrel. The doctors
in attendance upon her last night said
that she was somwhdt hysterical, hor
condition is not at all serious and
that she wiliprobably be out oi bod
within a fen days.
Mis. Taylor's trip covered a mile
ride through the Canadian rapids
before she reached tho brink of th3
precipice. Her barrel, staunch as a
barrel could be, was toppled and
buffeted through those delirious
waters, but escaped Serious contact
with rooks. As it passed over the
brink it rode at an anglo of about 45
degrees on tbe outer surface of the
deluge and descended as gracefully as
a barrel can descend to the white
foaming waters 158 feet below. True
to her calculations the anvil fastened
to the bottom of the barrel! kept it
foot downward and so it landed. Had
It turned over and landed ou its head,
Mrs. Taylor's head must have been
crushed and her neck broken. The
ride through the rapids occupied 18
minutes. It was 4.28 o'clock when
the barrel took its leap. It could not
be seen as it struck the water below
because of spray, hut in less than half
a minute after it passed over the
brink it was seen on the surface of
the scum-covered water below the
falls. It was .carried swiftly down to
the green waters beyond the scum, then
half way to tbe Maid-of-the-MiBt
landing it was caught in what is
known as the Maid-of-the-MiBt eddy
and held there until it floated so close
to the shore that it was reached by
means of a pole and hook and drawn
upon the rocks at 4.40 o'clock. Ten
minutes later the woman was lifted
from the barrel and half an hour
later she lay on a cot at her boarding
house at First street, in Niagara Falls
on the Amerioan side.
She thanked God she was alive,
thanked all who had helped her in
any way. (She said she could never
do it again, but that she was not
sorry she bad done it "if it would
help her financially, " she said. She
had prayed all during the trip except
during "a few moments" of unconsciousness just after her descent. The
barrel in which Mrs. Taylor made the
journey 1b 4% feet high.and about
three in diameter. A leather harness
and cushions inside protected her
body. Air was secured through a
rubber tnbe conneoted with a small
opening near the top of the barrel.
SCHLEY ON THE STAND.
Ho
Telia of Incidents Before the
Battle of Santiago.
Washington, Oct. 24,���Admiral
Schley today took the stand on his
own behalf at tbe court of Inquiry
which is investigating his conduct as
commander-in-chief of the flying
squadron during the Santiago campaign. He was summoned a few
minutes after the court convened at 2
o'clock for the afternoon session and
when the court adjourned at 4 o'clock
he apparently had only gotten well
under way in his testimony. Captain
Ghas. Clark, of the Oregon, nad jnst
concluded his statement when Mr.
Raynor,rising from his seat said: "1
should like to have Rear Admiral
Schley called" and the admiral was
accordingly asked to take tbe stand.
It was a turn in the proceedings for
whiob apparently neither the members of the court, its officers, nor the
spectators were  prepared and a mur
mur of surprise washeardon all sides.
It had been expected that the admiral's name would be reached
towards the close of the afternoon
session. There were ttill two witnesses on the list who had not been
heard and it was understood to be his
purpose not to take the stand until
tho entire list had been exhausted.
He, however, responded immediately to the call and before the audience was well aware of the faot he
had begun his narrative of the campaign which terminated in the destruction of Cervera's fleet. The
admiral, in answer to a question from
his counsel, proceeded to give a careful and detailed narrative of all the
events of the campaign up to tho
battle of Santiago. He had not
reached the stage of his testimony
whore he will tell of the battle, when
the court adjourned for the day.
There was no appearance of demonstration of any kind during the
admiral's recitil. On the contrary the
silence was almost unoroken except
for the sound of witness' own voice.
When the court adjourned for the
day many of the spectators pressed
forward and shook the admiral's
hand.

JEFFRIES TO MEET MAHER.
Baltimore, Md., Oct. 34.���Al. Hereford, of this oity has matched Teter
Maher, the Irish champion, and Jim
Jeffries, of California, to box ten
rounds in this city on Novejiber 8th.
The bout is to ho for a decinion.
(SPECIAL TO T|IB MINICRJ
Vancouver, Oct. 24.���Considerable
excitement was caused in the city today by the announcement that a seam
of coal had been struck near the western limits of the oity. The prospect
was promptly sold for 81,000 and will
be explored. ,
Excitement continues over the gold
finds in the Cariboo and every mail
brings news that the strike is even
better than at first thought. Soma
predict a second Klondike rush and
say that the historical old Cariboo
road will he the scene of another gold
rush suoh as happened to old Cariboo
10 years ago.
Canadian companies desirous of engaging in the halibut business here
claim that American companies are
fishing the Canadian halibut banks
dry, while claiming to fish in neutral
waters that they may take advantage
of neutral fishing laws and ship their
fish free of duty to the United States.
Tbe Canadian companies who have to
pay dnty will appeal to the Federal
authorities with alleged prool of complaints and failing redress say that
they will go to the courts.
The provincial attorney-general's
department have again failed to get a
conviction against the fishermen who
went out in patrol boats with guna
and held up the non-striking Jap
Ssbermen during the strike. Tbe
venue was changed from Vancouver to
New Westminster as a jury of labor
unionists here acquitted them after a
very strong charge against the prisoners by Mr. Justice Drake. At New
Westminster today, however, a jury
of farmers again acquitted the fishermen, although Mr. Justice Martin's
charge was against them. There are
seven or eight more counts against
the prisoners.
INJURIES TO STR.HATING.
Estimated Co*t of R< pairs Will Ex.
ceed $:;o, ooo.
Victoria, Oot. 24.���Surveys of the
stean_er Hating, which ran on the
rocks near Lasqueti island while on
her way from Skagwuy with 150 passengers, are being made this morning
by different firms with a view to bidding on the contraot for the repair of
the nhip. The steamer was hauled out
on the Esquimau marine railway.
As the vessel stands high and dry
from the water her twisted aod broken
stem an 1 indented plates impress one
with the narrow escape from total
destruction which she had. The damage is located nearly all forward of
the bridge The stem is twisted in an
almost irrecognizable shape. Farther
aft, however, tho weight of tbe
steamer appears to have been boroe
on tho starboard side and by one huge
dent in it It) plates are so punctured
in places and bo badly bulged in that
upwards of a dozen will have to be
removed arid either straightened or
renewed. On tbe port side there are
two dents of smaller size at some
distance apart. The keel, too, has
suffered and in a couple of places is
jammed the full bieadth of a couple
of plates which are over two feet wide
and stand almost upright. Within
the ship some 15 or 18 frames are said
to be damaged and will either have to
be substituted or straightened. Tho
cost of reprairs can only be given en
the rough approximation of contractors who have seen her. According to
these the amount will be at leant $20,-
000 while it is estimated that the
steamer will remain where she is for
fully six weeks or two months. The
steamer Amur another of the C. P. N.
liners, which touched the rocks and
was only naved by her double bottom,
has just como off tho same ways after
having had $110,000 of repair work
done on her.

THE MINING INDUSTRY.
The mining industry is slowly but
steadily Improving In the Koote-
nays and Yale, and tbe revival looks
like one of permanence. In the Slo-
can the shipments are increasing, and
this Is particularly noticeable around
Slocan City, where the shipments last
week were the largest for tbe same period for the year. Tbe Payne, one of the
banner mines of the Slogan, is about
to install a Concentrating mill, of a
capacity of 100 tons per day, and a
complete electric and water power
plant. With these improvements completed the Payne will douotleas be
able to renew 1U dividends and per.
haps repeat its former feat of distributing Jl,000,000 among its stockholders, as there are large reserves of
concentrating ore available for tbe
conscentrator as soon as it is put in
operation.
Work on the railway which is
being extended into the Lardeau section Is making good progress, and as
that country is one of the riohest in
mineral resources in British Colombia
it may confidently be expected that
the shipments from there as soon as
the road is finished will cut quite a
figure. The officials of the Canadian
Pacific railway, who have an intimate
knowledge of the resources of the
Lardeau, say that they have great
confidence in it and its mines which
they consider full v warrant tbe assumption that tbe tratlic in tbe way of ore
coming out over their road and supplies going in will be large.
In East Kootenay tbe prospect of
having a smelter, which is to be erected by the Sullivan Oronp Mining
Company, is having a stimulating
effect on mining. The railroad which
i�� boing built to connect the Crow's
Nest coal fields with the Great Northern main line will open up a conntry
which besides having considerable
agricultural laud is known to have
valuable mineral areas.
In the Nolson division there is a
groat deal of aotivity. Tbe properties
of the Hall Mines are producing well,
the Mollie Gibson la arranging to resume shipments on an extensive scale,
the Ymir continnes to show a profit
each month ard new deals are fre
queutly reported and the ontlook is
promising.
In the Trail creek division in the
Rossland camp, notwithstanding tbe
continuance of tbe strike, the shipments
are increasing eaoh week and it
should not be long before they will
equal what they were before the
trouble was inaugurated. Besides the
mines in the Hoss'and camp those of
the west slope of Sophie mountain and
in the Norway mountain section con-
tinue to be operated witb tbelr usual
forces and some of them give promise
of making mines.
Id the boundary mining matters are
in full swing and the mines there
kesp the smelters in continuous operation, and, in order to meet tbe increased ore that can be extracted both
the smelters there ate being enlarged.
Republic will shortly be conneoted
witb the Bjundary amelting points
by rail and nearly all tbe ore from
that on nip will be sent to tbe Boundary plants for treatment. This will
call for a still further Increase in the
existing reduction plants, or the
ereotion of new ones.
Still farther west in tbe Himilka
meen setcton a number of properties
are being developed of which nothing
mncb is heard. For instance, the
estate of the late Marcus Daly is
developing tbe Nickle Plate group and
about 1200,000 has been spent In opening it up and it is already a valuable
mine, as the ledges are large and the
oref if a nay grade. Tbe opening np
of the coal measure* there is also
under way and they promise to produce large quantities of coal o' a good
grade. What the section to the west
wants most is transportation and this

owing to the action of the American
smelier trust virtually refusing to
accept the heavy lead ores, aDd, as a
consequence, caos'rg tbe increased
reduction of ore of tbe latter class at

tbe dry ore belt of the Slocan and has
been of great help to that section.
There seems to be an end in Bight to
the labor trouble in the Rossland
camp and when this is reached there
should result a lasting peace between
employer and employee. This is a
greatly desired consummation. Transportation is the prime necessity for
successful mining and the railroads which are under construction in
tbe Lardeau, in Southeast Kootenay
abd in the Boundary will open up
large and promising areas of rich
ground, and render a number of partially developed properties accessible.
On tbe whole.the condition is promising for a lively winter and spring.
Nelson the wholesale center will
share in this renewed prosperity ; each
camp as it improves will purchase
more goods and supplies hero and
thus will it become a much larger and
more prosperous community than it
is.
TOLSTOI ON MARRIAGE.
A St. Petersburg despatch, published in yesterday's issue of The Miner,
states that Count Tolstoi, tbe Russian
antboi and reformer, has bar? a
relapse and that his condition is considered serious. Count Tolstoi is considered one of tbe remarkaolu authors
of the time, but there is something
awful in his production that brings a
shudder while one reads, and reveals
the intense melancholy and mobrid-
ness of bis nature. The productions
are painfully realistic. His "Death of
Michael lllitch," describes the last
illness and death of a fairly prosperous man in such a manner as to give a
sensitive person tbe nightmare. His
views on marriage, as outlined in the
famous "Krcut?er Sonata" and in
latter publications, are not healthy
and show his extreme morbidness.
It is held by Count Tolstoi that
marriage is a sin and not a duty, and
that the idea of religious and moial
men should be tbe abolition of marriage and this at the cost of the gradual
extinction of the human race. The
God-fearing man, married or celibate,
should be as o'naste as possible.
Marriage, he contends, is not a Christian institution, Christ did rint marry,
nor did any of nis disciples. In addressing the multitudes, among which
were the married, He told them not
to put away their wives,not to divorce
them as allowed by the Mosaic law.
To some He declared it were bet'er
they did not marry, and He told all
that the greatest sin was to regard a
woman as the ohjeot of desire.
Marriage, Tolstoi says, is anti-
Christian as It turns men and women
away from the only purpose of life,
from their only duty, the realization
of God's will.
Men have tyrannized over women,
he declares, and held them in legal
subjugation, but with disastrous
effect, ns by passive resistance they
have yielded a subtle yet effective
power and are the real controllers of
society and a power In all the affairs
of mankind. llo .olds that they
mould poblio opinion, which is
stronger than governments. As their
influence is based on their attraction
be believes that is essentially im
moral and irreligious. As a remedy
they must be resisted and converted
into co-workers, comrades for  Christ
His theory in a much smaller way
Shakespeare puts into the mouth of
Hamlet when he tells Ophelia to go to
a nunnery so that she may thus avoid
becoming a breeder of sinners, and
when Hamlet declares there shall be
no more marriages In Denmark,but then
Hamlet was supposed to be morbid and
was suspected by tbe other characters
in the play to oe touched with mad
ness. There Is much of the same nior
bidness and a like touch of madness
In Tolstoi's views on marriage as are
siiowii in the words of the melancholy
Dane.and he might well be called tbe
Hamlet of literature. Tolstoi's views
a<-e unhealthy and they are impossi
ble of accomplishment exoept by a
few enthusiasts. In substance be finds
ianlt witb tbe Creator for the plan
which be adopted for the pio-oreation
of mankind. Ho would improve on
the work of the Diety. Pro-oreation
is tbe strongest characteristic of every
form of life that lives and breathes,
and it will take a stronger writer
than Tolstoi to induce the human
race to bring about a gradual extinction of its kind, because it is an
attempt to set aside ore of the natural
and consequently immutable laws of
nature,and notwithstanding his views
against the sacrament of marriage
there will continue to be marriage
and giving in marriage.

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

England holds the record for the
longest regular railway run without

from Paddlngton to Exeter���194
miles. Franoe cornea next, tbe run
from Paris to Calais being 185J< miles

suppose that in Canada, with our magnificent distances, we coulo beat this,

BRAIN-FOOD NONSENSE.
Another ridiculousfood fad has been
branded by the most competent
authorities. They have dispelled the
silly notion that one kind of food is
needed for brain, another for muscles,
and still anotbor for bones. A cor
reot diet will not only nourish a particular part of the body, but it will
sustain every other pait. Yet, how
ever good your food may be, its nutri'
ment is destroyed by indigestion or
dypepsia. You must prepare for their
ppearance or prevent their coming by

The Spokesman-Review in its issue

offeree1 tbe position of manager of the
smelter at Nortbport to succeed Bela

for the Chinaman, brought forward
four pages of objections to By-law

held that although the words of the
bv-law said that line seven T.as to he-
amended, when it should have been
line six, yet the intention of the law
was clear,and the chief objection rendered was only relating to a mere
clerical error, and as aucb he would

the fine but retained the right to
appeal. ,

Ing Wild Horse In East
Kootenay.
H. C. Killeen, provinolal road
inspector, leaves this morning for
Rossland to look over some government work in that vicinity. In conversation with a Miner reporter yesterday Mr.Kill-en stated that practically all the wcrk in tbe way of building trails and roads and bridges that
bad been laid out for the season's
operations had been completed. While
in Nelson he took a trip over the new
wagon road running westward from
the city witn which be expressed himself greatly pleased, saying that be
thought it tbe most important and
best road that had been built in tbe
Kootenays this year. He laid that it
would bo a little while before the
people of the city appreciated what it
was to have a Brst-class driving road
out of town, giving as picturesque
and interesting a drive as could be
found anywhere, but when they did it
would undouhtsdly be considered as
one of Nelson's attractions for the
tonrist.
In East Kootenay, which Mr. Killeen has just returned from, he says
that this season the government hate
put in new wagon bridges over Bull
river and Perry creek, acd also have
laid out one to cross the Elk at Michel
prairie, which will be completed
shortly. A new bridge has also been
put in on tbe wagon road running
south from Fort Steele, over Wild
Horse creek, the new bridge being
some distance below tbe old one, and
necessitating half a mile of new
road.
Wild Horse creek, although not a
very large stream, is %ue of the most
troublesome In the province. Since
the placer gold discoveries in 1860
hydraulic mining on a large scale has
been prosecuted on the banks of the
stream, about eight miles from the
mouth, witb tbe result that the large
amount of gravel washed down by
continually cbokii.g np tbe various
channels of the stream has made tbe
bed of it nearly half a mile wide. In
hign water the stream continually
ohanges its channel, gouging out deep
oourses in tho shifting gravel one day
and filling tbem up tbe next. Owing
to tbe gieat depth of the gravel where
the wagon road crosses, it is very
difficult to get a solid foundation that
will not be washed out the first high
water. To meet this condition of
things one span of the bridge baa be it
made seventy feet in length, and en
and the sections on eaob side of it are
made entirely independent so that if
one section is swept away, despite the
precautions that have been taken, the
reat of the bridge is not so likely to
suffer.
At Bull river, fifteen miles beiow
Fort Steele the old wagon bridge, a
mile from where Bull river runB into
tbe Kootenay, has been repaired and a
new bridge put in where the old pack
bridge was, eight miles from the
moutb. The trail which connects
with tbe Fort Steele road has been
widened into a wagon road as far as
tbe Cbickamon Stone. This mine is
situated about two miles from the
bridge but it is Intended to continue
tbe wagon road as far is the bridge
next season as tbe opening of the
iron bed on Boll river will undoubtedly have a great effect on the future
of that section of country. Bull river
is believed by many to contain rich
placers at tbe bead waters, such is
weie discovered on Wild Horse and
Perry creek in tbe early days, but
owing to tbe great difficulties of prospecting more than twenty miles up
above tbe brllge tbe section of
country lying Stove that point is
practically unexplored. Whether tbe
placer gold is^there or not it is
known that immense bodies of iron
txUt on tbe lower river and tbat
alone will be enough to bring Bull
river to the front again, A couple of
parties have endeaovred to reaoh tbe
headwaters of Bull river from tbe
npper Elk, but bo far as known without success.
On Perry creek a new bridge has
been put in a short distance from
Marysville, which latter is situated
on St. Mary's river. Mr. Killeen
regaids the prospects of East Kootenay as very bright and says that great
progress has been made this season in
