f Montreal, Jan. 7.���The mayoralty
contest which will now shortly be in
progress, will be affected materially
by tbe number of voters who are dis
qualified through the non-payment of
taxes and water rates. Out of a total
normal qualified voting strength of
33,000, no less than 21,330 will be unable to east their ballots.
The significance of such a condition
of affairs will be at onoe seen when it
is pointed out that at the election of
two years ago only 20,236 votes were
cast in all, Titiile this year, supposing
every vote in the city is approximately divided between 25,000 Frencb-
Canadiuns and 13,000 English speaking citizens of all nationalities. Uf
the 21,330 disqualified on the present
oeoasion, 14,700 are French Canadians
and a,iH0 English-speaking.

canal bill and Mr. Hepburn, the
chairman of the committee on interstate and foreign commerce, which
reported the Dill, took the floor to
open tbe debate. Referring to the
efforts of the Panama company to
build a canal by private enterprise,
he summed up their efforts as follows:
The company raised U356,000,000 by
tne sale of $435,000,000 of bonds and
after eight years the managers of the
oompany found themselves with the
work less than one-fourtb completed,
penniless and bankrupt in money and
character. The disaster to this company, he said,proved conclusively that
the work should be undertaken by
governmental ageucy.

Boers   Have   Suffered  Greater LosseB
During Past Year.
London, Jan. 8.���A published j
view of the operations in Soutb Africa
during the past year, based upon
official reports, gives an interesting
comparison of Boer and British losses
The review says that the total reduction of the Boer forces in killed,
wounded, taken prisoner and surrendered amounts to 18,320 men. Uut of
this total only 7,993 rifles were secured. British columns are supposed to
have taken all the Boer artillery
amounting to 27 guns exclusive of the
two captured by General Dewet at
Zoefontein, The capture of Boer stock
was enormous considerng tbe great
hauls made during the earlier years
of the war. During the last year a
total of 29,882 horses were captured,
while of other stock, such as cattle,
oxen and sheep, 36,821 bead were captured.
The British casualties from actual
fighting amount to only half of those
sustained by the liners, namely 9,1m
men of which 1,153 were taken piison-
ers and bave since been released. During the last year 4,040 men died of
disease, 15 officers and 342 men were
accidentally killed, and 25,800 men
were invalided home.

/More Than a Dozen Miners
Are Killed   by   a
Negaunee, Mich., Jan. 7.���The most
distressing accident occurring in this
country for years oocurred at the
Nagaunee mine today at noon when by
a eave-in, tbe lives of from 13 to 17
miners are thought to bave been   lost.
The cave-In was at tbe bottom of
tbe old shaft. Had it occurred an
hour sooner abont 150 men would have
been killed. The names of the deal
so far as known are: Wm. Wiliams,
married; John Sullivan, single; John
Pascoe, single; John Pearce, married ;
Jacob Ilunlalla, married. Thus far
but one body bas been taken out, that
of Hunlalla and one man was rescued
alive, lt is thought the other bodies
can not be reached within 24 hours.
The miner rescued is Dominico Basso,
an Italian. Basso describes tbe disaster in tbe mine as follows:
We were seated around the pump at
tbe bottom of the shaft, when without
any warning thousands of tons of ore
came down. I remembered no mure
until ) heard the sound of picks and
shovels in the bands of the rescuers,
and their shouts. I was in total darkness and my feelings can not be describes. What seemed ages to me was
but minutes. When the rescueis found
me I was'75 feet from tbe place where
I was sitting and found myself in a
drift. How I got there 13 a mystery,
but it can only be accounted for by
the concussion Of tbe atmosphere.
Tbe Nagaunee ia one of the most
unlucky properties in the Lake
Superior district. Much trouble in
sinking and drifting has resulted from
surplus water and quicksands. It was
at this mine that $1,000,000 was re
nently expended to sink a shaft to the
start.     The   strong   wind on Sunday

Chinese Court Enters Pekin With
Pomp and Show.
Pekin, Jan. 7.���The Imperial court
entered the Forbidden City at 7.10
o'clock this evening. It was the most
brilliant scene Pekin ever witnessed.
Tbe proceession consisted of a thousand gorgeously attired noblemen
mounted upon glittering caparisoned
horses. The emperor, the empress
dowager, Prince Chun and several
princesses were borpe in yellow
chairs, the esoort carrying hundreds
of gay banners and silk umbrellas.
The troops of General Yuan Shi
Kai, governor of Pe Chi LI, proceded
the emperor. The foreign community
assembled on top of the Chen gate.
The emperor and empress dowager
entered the temple in the gate and
i-urned incense. The dowagei empreBs
upon emerging from '.be temple saw
the foreigners peering down and
bowed. A double row of soldiers,
kn.eling, lined the four mile route.
Pekin, Jnn. 7.���The re-entrance of
the Chinese emperor Into Pekin today
was the most remarkable episode in
the annals of the dynasty. The
spectacular phases of the return of the
court -xceeded expectations. The
cortege was a sort of glorified lord-
mayor's show and was a bewildering
barbaric exhibition of oriental tinselled splendor.

J San Francisco, Jan. 7.���Nothlng has

Probable Number of American Immigrants for 1902 Estimated 75,000.
Winoipeg, Jan. 7.���Colonization
agents frcm tbe United States estimate that in the neighborhood of 75,-
000 Americans will pass ovor the Soo
road and settle In Alberta and Saskatchewan districts during next summer. Mr. Specs, the general colonization agent of the Dominion government, questioned on the matter, said
It wus H hard thing to estimate at
present. He had no doubt but that
fully five tpres as many would come
over next year as had settled in these
districts last year.
When asked if 10,000 had come ovir
the Soo road last year, he replied that
there would be fully that number und
probably more, but the returns had
not yet been made np. He expected
to see the whole country between
Yorkton and Prince Albert one vast
settlement. The Moose Mountain
country would also receive a large
share of settlement. Americans had
pnrchnsed blocks aggregating fully
100,000 acres there,ana these would be
subdivided in quarter and half sections and settled next summer.

London, Jan. 7,���The Atlantic

Commenting on tbe racing prospects
of tbe American horses, the London
Sun says, if Mr. Whitney's horses are

Vancouver and Victoria  Peoplo   Have
Surveyors in the Field.
Vancouver, Jan. 0.���A party of
surveyors headed by H. T. Harper is
now in Alaska surveying a route for
a railway from Pyramid harbor to the
Rainy Hollow district, says tlie
Seattle Pcst-I��tell1goncer, Tho infor*
���nation comes from the north to a resident of Seattle. That the surveyors are
now in the field is a fact.
For whom they are making the survey Harper declines to make public
though the impression prevails that
the enterprise is backed by Victoria
and Vancouver capitalists, witb Americans heavily interested. Harper and
his men, seven or eight all old, were
pss'-engers to Alaska on the steamer
Dolphin uurly in December. They
were in Seattle Beveral days prior to
the sailing of the vessel, and are aaid
to have been in conference with E. C.
Hawkins. The latter is now in
Ottawa ostensibly for thc furtherance
of an undertaking involving the construction of a railway Irom Dawson
through the Klondike district into the
Stewart river country.
Development of the Rainy Hollow
copper mines is thc chief purpose of
the construction ol thc Pyramid line,
which, however, would also tap the
Porcupine placer distriot. The Rainy
Hollow district lies about seventy
miles to the interior from Pyramid,
and is bisected by Jack Dalton's trail.
It is declared to be one great mineral
deposit, copper predominating. The
oie, in addition to about 20 per cent,
copper, as many claim for it, carries a
gold value of from t4 to 87 per ton.
That a railway will be built to
Rainy Hollow has been the confident
oelief of the more prominent operators
in the district since the earlier stages
of its discovery. And the person hay
ing knowledge of the Harper expedition plan suys the backers will certainly construct the roud, if suitable
euarters can be secured from the respective governments.

The provincial land department has

the question of hiB qualification to run
for mayor has arisen, is in bis name
it was purchase! by him out of trust
moneys in which he bad no intereat or
title. Upon this plea be and hia supporters requested that his name be
placed upon tbe voters' list.
The oity clerk took tbe matter under
advisement   in   order   that   the  city
attorney   might pass   upon the  question.     Later   in   the day the city attorney declared in favor of the placing
tne  name  of  Mr. Kirkpatrick on the
list. He stated that lot 7, block 4,Nelson, appears iu the registry   office  in
the  name   of   J.   A. Kirkpatrick and
William   Wilson   with   no indication
from the documents lhat the  same  is
held in trust by either of them.   This,
of course, would be explainable by thc
fact  that  tbe  registry   laws  do  not
recognize trusts  and the attorney had
to   determine   whether cr not this ic
trust   property.       The   city   attorney
stated that the oity clerk   had ��hown
him a statuatory aeclaration sworn to
by J. A. Kirkpatrick yestorrjay before
W. J. Hannington,   a  notary  public,
and  although -tbis declaration is  not
drawn   tn   the   words   in   which   he
would couch a declaration for the pur
pose intended still he could only   con
clnde that the property is trnst prop
erty and that the deponent  intends  It
to be bo understood in   the words used
by him.     If such Is the case the   city
attorney   did   not think that  because
any taxes that may  be unpaid on this
particular   property   still   remain unpaid,   Mr.   Kirkpatrick   should   have
been omitted from the list.
Upon thia showing the city oierk
decided that Mr. Kirkpatrick's name
should be placed upon the voters' list
and gave bis assent thereto.
In connection with this lot matter
it might not be inopportune to ask
Mr. Kirkpatrick a qnestlon or two-
Is it not a fact that he and Mr. Wil
Bon have owned lot 7, block 4, for i
considerable time? Did not the fact
that he waB a partial owner In the lot

ward? Has he ever voted in tbe east
ward by virtue of thu intereat whicb
be owned in this lot? If so how can
he rconcile his net ion of yesterday
with that of voting under what might
be uncharitably termed false pre
tenses. Did not Mr. Kirkpatrick toll
his friends within the last day or two
that he and Mr. Wilson owned tbe
We believe there are some legal
points involved in this matter which

elected mayor then,in the contingency
of bis election, which is unlikely,
every official act of his could be called
Int" question aud this point would
have finally to bs passed on. This
would involve the city in litigation
and trouble.
Notwithstanding the singular pre-
diciment in which Mr. Kirkpatrick
found himself, Mr. Fletcher and bis
supporters bad no desire to take
advantage of it. Tbey wero perfectly
willing that his name should be
placed on tbe voters' list provided it

Steamers Have Another Try For
Championship of the Lake.
Tbe boast of the erew of the C. P.IE.
steamer Kokanee that she will not
take backwater from any craft on tbe
lake was proved to be without foundation yesterday morning when the K.
B. aud N. Co.'s steamer Kaslo sustained her reputation as the fastest
coat on Kootensy lake and gave the
Kokanee such a beating between Five
Mile point and Nelson city wharf
that it is not likely the C.P.B. eteani-
lioat officials will do any more boasting about the speed of their fast ones.
Ever since the Kokanee came off the
ways a few weeks ago and resumed
her Kasio-Nelson run, great things
were predicted should she ever have
an opportunity of testing ber speed
alongside   the Kaslo.
As a rnla on the trip down the lake,
the Kaslo carried from 80 to ISO tons
of ore each day, while the Kokanee
generally comes down light Such
was the ease on Saturday morning
last when through a delay in making
the train connection at Five Mile
point tbe Kokanee came along under
full speed, just as the Kaslo was pulling out from the landing. Under the
circumstances the officers of the Kaslo
did not feel justified In putting their
boat at racing speed and allowed the
Kokanee to get ahead and reach the
city wharf a couple of lengths ahead.
This so elated the crew of the O.P.B.
steamer, who had been so long accustomed to defeat whenever they competed witb either the Kaslo or International, that they fondly imagined
that their boat had developed a greatly increased speed during ber recent
overhauling. Yesterday morning's
race, however shattered tbeir hopes
and was acknowledged by thn-passengers and erews of both steamers to be
the fairest test of speed between two
boats that has ever taken place on tbe
Kootenay lake.
The K.R. and N. steamer left Kaslo
with  two car  loads  of  ore,   one  of
which   was  unloaded   at   five   Mile
point.     Jest as she was  backing out
from the landing the Kokanee have iu
Bight around a point   and   tbe  Kaslo
began preparing for a race. Ou seeing
the intention  of the Kaslo the  Kokanee put back to Six Mile  landing, apparently to avoid a race.   Tha captain
of the Kaslo,  however,   was not willing to allow bis quarry  to'escape him
in this  way and slowly backed   up to
meet his rival.     Tbe   Kokanee   came
out at last to the contest  which  was
seen to be   inevitable.     At  the  Five
Mile buoy thu steamers  were   abreast
and  both in  good racing trim.     The
Kokanee was nearly  a   length  ahead
when the captain of   the   Kaslo  gave
the  full  speed   ahead  bell   and she
began rapidly to  forge ahead   and  at
the   end   of the first half mile was  a
good length ahead.   From this on  the
race  waa a mere  procession   and   the
Kaslo   tied   np   at  the city wharf  a
quarter  of  a    mile    ahead   of   the
At tbe beginning of the race the
passengers and crew of tbe Kokanee
crowded on deck to witness a great
victory, and so they did but unfortunately for them the victory was on tbe
other side. As tbe Kaslo reached the
city wharf ber officers and crew were
muoh elated over the ending of the
contest and have snch faith in their
steamer that tbey are offering to
wager 81,000 or any less snm that tbe
victory can be repeated st will. During tbe race one member of the crew
uf tbe Kaslo indulgd in tbe pleasantry
of offering, from the wheel box of the
boat, a tow to the following steamer,
a suggestion whieb was vociferously
applauded by his friends.
Required Improvements That Government Engineer Might See About.
For Bsveral years a small amount oi
work has been done in improving the
navigation of thhe Arrow lakes at the
narrows. Tberc for a distance of
about 20 miles are shifting sandbars
which impede the passage of steamers
in a cbannel none too wide nt any
time. The steamboat captains are
required to keep a strict lookout for
these forming and sometimes tbe channel so fills up for a distance that
vessels have to make their wa;
through what is a mixture of sand
and water. Navigation would be
qinch worse were it not for the fre
quent passage of these vessels. The
work that was done by the Dominion
government waB in the way of orib
work and dredging out of the chapnel
with a steam shovel loaned by the 0
P.K , waB of some benefit but nothing
was done during the past summer.
At the approach to Arrowhead there
is also a bad sandbar whicb is tbe
cause of considerable annoyance to
tugs rather than to the larger
The western representative of the
department of works at Ottawa is
expected to visit the Kootenays in a
sbort time to make inquiries into the
requisites of these waters.
Capt. Gore,speaking of the requirements of the Arrow lakes said that
there was work for two or three
months of eacb year in keeping the
narrows open as they should be. He
understood tbat an appropriation of
(15,000 was made one year but it was
found tbat this was only enough to
build a dredge without tbe necessary
soows so that only dredging witb the
steam shovel was done. The larger
steamers draw from five to six feet of
water but it would be better if the
channel were nine feet deep at least.
At present it was a difficult job to get
through with safety and ordinary
Tbe navigation of Kootenay| lake
could also be made much osier.
There is now only one light on the
lake whereas several are required to
give steamboat men the usual facilities on a water on wbich there is bo
much shipping. Here again the passenger steamers have no great amount
of trouble as to the depth of tbe water
but there are several propellers on the
lake which require a greater depth.
These are often unable to reach some
of the wharfs. Kootenay Landing is
one ol the places in need of a light
and at several places there is work for
a dredge, particularly at Nelson and
at Kootenay Landing. On the Kootenay river on the American side every
steamer landing has a light kept
burning at the government's expense.
The number of small steamers un
Kooenay lake is constantly increasing and a beginning on the work of
improving the navigation wherever
possible cannot come top soon to suit
the steamship men.
that tbe wholesaler had nothing to
complain of. Mr. Robertson said that
American pork was being brought into
British Columbia in very large quan
tities, the big demand iu England for
tbe Ontariu pork having absorbed all
tbe supply, with the result that thu
only place for this province to purchase at present was in the United
States, where the pork packing busi*
ness was making enormous strides.
Tbe Northwest territories in time
would undoubtely raise large quantities of pigs and he thought iu British
Columbia in time there would be
enough raised to supply tbe local
demand at least.
Great consternation was felt by tho
friends of M. A. Hagarty, of Lexington, Ky., whon thoy saw he was turning yellow. HiB skin slowly changed
color, also his eyes, and he suffered
terribly. His malady was Yellow
Jaundice. He was treated by the best
doctors, but without benefit. Then
he was alvised to trr Electric Bitters,
