J way company can obtain better terms
for power. Tlic only unanswerable
criticism from our principal critio
that 1 Have beard after discussing tlio
question fully was the remark, "To
hell with tlio people, lot them liiirn
candles, until you can give them
light."
It remains with tho people to
choose for themselves on Tuesday.
Yours truly,
FRANK FLETCHER,
Mayor.
An Outline of the Situation
as Understood by Mayor
Fletcher.
To Meet Requirements a Tern
porary Arrangment Is
Needed.
To the Ratepayers,���On Tuesday it
rests with tlio properly owners to say
whether they wish an efficient electric light service ur not. The city lias
outgrown its present plant, and it ia
generally agreed Hint for the future it
is necessary to build a new plant
whore the conditions will permit an
increase uf power to keep pace with
tlic growth of the oity nnd that enn
only be obtained on Kootenay river.
Tn meet present rcquiionionts a temporary arrangement is necessary, and
the Council have endeavored to do
their best to solve the question In the
best in 11'rests of the city generally.
Tile situation is as follows.:
Tlio lights connected with the present plant exceed the capacity as far as
power.ii conccrnec1 and during the win-
t'r iininllis there is a .shortage of water
to develop oven the. power we have.
Consequently during the period when
wo require light we cannot supply the
ratepavers who require It, nor can wc
light the stieets.
Under bylaw we propose taking ��
minimum load of 100 h. p. or so on
up to fiiiu li. p. always with 50 h. p. to
come anil go on,without exceeding the
minimum. It has been stated tbat the
"peas" load oan run np to almost
anything during a month and that
would be the "minimum" for the
year. This Statement has been made
with n deliberate intention of lying
to those who will not. look into the
mutter.
The city owns two systems, one a
direct current carrying 3,035 lights
and the other an alternating system
with transformers carrying 1,000
lights or over: the latter system is the
only one lhat can be connocted with
Bonnlngton without purchasing fresh
transformers, so that in no event
could we connect the power company
with the direct current syBtem unless
wo bought transformers, which simply means that ir we take tho overload off our present plant and put on
so many lights on to the West Kootenay Power Co., we know exactly what
we are burning every month. It is
impossible to burn 150 h. p. when
you have only lights enough connect
ed to consume 100 h. p.
During the month of October whon
the alieriiating machine was out of
repair we had all its lights on the
Bonnlngton Power, over 1,000 lights
connected, which produced a revenue
of $050 at our lowest rate. We paid
to run those lights $440.25 for 110
h.p. During that month '.he so-oallcd
"apex" load wont up to 155 h. p. but
the daily average peak load was only
HO h. p.
It must lie remembered that before
the bylaw takes effect a oontract has
to bo drawn setting forth not only the
bylaw, but anything necessary to
Willie its terms clear and binding, and
I think the council can be trusted to
look after this.
In conclusion it means this.
To defeat the bylaw: Poor light,
no street .lights and some 800 to 8011
Mils at present connected cut off.
Topasa the bylaw: Supplying v.hat
tlio ratepayers need and taking not to
exceed the minimum for the whole
Tear���Whatever the citizens can use���
making n, pioflt on it and in my
opinion not to exceed 100 h p. minimum during the whole year.
Should any break down take place
that is the lault of our present plant
there would nc no necessity to increase
tho power unless such break down
was of a permanent nature. The
majority of the council and myself
are simply trying to do the best we
can to keep the city in light until
we are in a position to supply light
ourselves and we are quite alive to
and capable of preventing any infringement of the city's franchise.
There is one other side to the question and that is that by taking 100 h.
p. and relieving our water supply we
will be helping both the Tramway
company and the smelter, both local
enterprises, the stopping of tbe street
THE TRAMWAY COMPANY.
It Must Obtain a Reduction in   Power
Hates or Cease Operations.
Nelson, Nov. 10th, 1001.
To tho Ratepayers of the City of
Nelson, 11. O ���The directors of the
Nelson Electrlo Tramway company
have, during the past week, had repeated inquiries from the citizens,
friendly to the company, as to their
feelings towards the power bylaw to
bo submitted to vole on Tuesday next
and as to whether the passage of the
bylaw would be beneficial or other
wise to tho Tramway oompany. 1 have
been in consequence instructed to
lay before the ratepayers Hie position
of the company. When the Tramway
company Inaugurated Its service,pros-
p'ects in Nelson were very bright, and
the parent company expected that the
growth of the city would soon minimise the expected daily loss, but
hopes in this direction have, for the
time being, been blasted and it was
necessary to avoid closing down, that
reductions in cost of operation should
take place. Overtures were made from
time lo time to the West Kooteuav
Power and Light company but without suceesH. Tbe W. K. P. &L. Co.
contended that they muat exact the
full price of their conlract unless they
could obtain return from investment
for their pole line and uoBstruotioTJ,
from other sources. Negotiations to
accomplish this end were undertaken,
and on the 2fltli day of September
liKll, I wrote the city council as
follows.
Pent. 25th, 1901.
J. K. Strachan, Esq., City Clerk:
Dear Sir,���Our company has been
endeavoring for some time past to induce the West Kootenay Power company to reduce the price charged for
power, but without success.
The contention made by Mr.   Campbell on behalf of the W.   K. P. Co., is
that  aside  from proportionate oost ol
management and  generating of power
his eompany is entitled   to a   revenue
sufficient   to pay interest   and sinking
fund   on   the cost   of  construction of
their polo line into Nelson.     Wc have
pointed out that  even   admitting  his
contention has  force,   still   that  the
tramway   could   not   much longer be
cxpeoted to be operated at such a serious loss as we are now incurring, and
that   In   our opinion   the parent company   might   at  any   time decide to
cease operations.     The   conclusion of
our  negotiations   was   reached    this
morning, when Mr. Campbell definitely informed   us that hn would not reduce the charge   for   power, unless he
was  able  by   disposition of power to
the   City   of   Nelson   and   others  to
obtain   an     additional   revenue   and
benefit from the pole line  constructed
into   Nelson   by   his company.     We
know that the  council will   do everything to safeguard tho interests of the
people   in   dealing with the   lighting
question   but   it   is   conceded  on  nil
sides   that the citizens  aie anxious to
see   tho   tramway  continue in operation   and   we   wish you would   place
this   letter   before   tho   mayor    und
council   so   that   our position In   the
matter may bo   apparent and that our
company   is   anxious   to see some
rangement   made   that  will result in
reduction   of    our   fixed charges   for
power.    Yours truly,

RUMBLINGS
FIRST THOUGHT TO SHIP.
of
Roberts Not   Attending
Duty and May Resign.
to
Preparations for Coronations.
The  Queen's   New
Crown.
Lonlon, Nov. 10.���More dissatisfaction than ever reigns at the war
ofliee. It is now thought almost certain thBt Lord Roberts will resign
aVmt the first of April, if not sooner,
and will not take pint in the coronation proceedings. There is grumbling
at his continued absence from I'all
Mall and much correspondence is left
unanswered. Mr. Rroderick took it
upon himself to answer Sir Evelyn
Wood's request for another aide-decamp and very curtly refused it,
An elaborate report has been issued
by the Colonial office on the concentration camps. Tho Unionist papers
pronounce the history of the camps
most creditable to England, while the
pro-liocr journals maintain the unutterable criminality of the policy of
concentraion. They hold that the report admits an indiscriminate massing
together of people, of insufficient
housing and covering, absence of
warmth and poor rations. The report
states that those whose relatives were
ou uommando had been put on half
nitions but this policy was afterward
abandoned.
A stir has been created by the
rumor that Sir Miohael Hicks-Beach,
chancellor of the exchequer, would
impose another tax nf a half penny a
pound on sugar but it is'an unwritten
law of Ihe treasury that no industry
shall ��*e tampered with two years
running, and it is not likely that Sir
Michael Hicks-Beach will transgress
this time. Sir Michael haa intimated
that the tax on coal would be continued but not increased.
The cabinet seems to bo putting
unusual energy into its work and
during the ccining week will formulate proposals for the reform of the
procedure of the House of commons.
This has beoome very necessary on
account of the tact that domestic legislation is hopelessly blocked. Parliament will reassemble about January
23rd.
Preparations for the coronation are
assuming costly shape. Mrs. Bradley-Martin'* tiara will cost ��250,000
and will be a replioa of the diadem of
Empress Josephine. The koh-i-noor
diamond will be set in   the crown   for
Speonlation  As   to    the   Futuie
Brooklyn and Steinwinder.
(SPECIAL TO THE nllNHIt.)
Grand Porks, Nov. 10.���Dr. West-
wood has been appointed district coroner, vice Dr. Stanley Smith,
resigned.
Yesterday was pay day on the
Republic Sc Grand Forks railway.
About $12,0(10 was disbursed. Tlio
company is building a four-story trestle across Trout oreek,south of Curlew
lako on the Colville reservation. The
structure will be 700 feet long and
the amount of timber to be utilised
in its construction will execeed 000,000
feet. The bridge will have a seven
degree curve.
John S. Snapp, of the Groat
Northern railway, haa arrived from
8t. Paul on business In connection
with ihu final settlement of the right
of way on the branch line to
Republic.
J. E. Boss, a prominent Spokane
mining operator, who is largely interested in the Brooklyn and Sternvinder
group, at Phoenix, is here. He recently visited Toronto Where Robert
Jaffray, Wm. McKenzie and D. D-
Mann, his leading associates In the
enterprise, reside. The group is owned by a company styled the Dominion
Copper company. Naturally a good
deal of speculation has been indulged
in respecting the object ot his eastern
trip and his present visit to the mines
which bave been closed down for several months. Mr. Boss contented
himself with declaring thnt the visit
bad been of significance and that he
was in no sense performing any
special mission for his associaltes.
He will spend a fortnight In the
Boundary. In accordance with a request from the management for a
railway spur, the Cr-at Northern has
sent an engineer to report on the
First Thought mine in the Pierre lake
district, Colville reservation, north
west of Ilossburg. The mine is owned
principally by Pat Burns, the Kootenay meat king, T. H. Holt, of Vancouver, and Wm. McKenzie, of Mc-
Keuzic & Mann, railwav contractors,
Toronto. It has beon under steady
development and the railway company has been assured that the First
Thought 1b in shape to make steady
shipments and lhat over 40,000 tons
of ore have been blocked out. Several
experimental shipments have been
made to the Tacoma smelter. When
the spur is built the mine will ship to
Orand Forks.

NEW MANAGER ON DECK.
Rossland, Nov. lli.-John H. Mackenzie, the new general manager of
tho Le Rio, who was recently selected
to take the plaoe made vacant by the
teslgnation of Bernard Macdonald,has
arrived in Rossland and has assumed
tho duties of his new position. Among
mining men Mr. Mackenzie has the
reputation of being well informed in
all that appertains to practical mining, and is also a good manager.
The Rossland amateurs, who arc to
produce the farce-comedy "Confusion"
are making good progress under the
direction of W. J. Nelson. There
was a full rchersal at the opera house
this evening.
TOPEKA LITTLE   DAMAGED.
(SPECIAL TO TUB MINER.)
Viotoria, Nov. 16.���The C. P. B.
ticket offices on the corner of Fort and
Government streets and the Dominion
Express offices in the rear are to be
vacated on tbe first of the year. A
bank from Vancouver, reported to be
the Imperial, is taking the stand and
will establish a branch.
The damages to the City of Topeka,
as revealed in dry dock where she
now is shows that 30 feet of the stem
was twisted and twelve new plates
are required. The tenders for repairs
close today. No hole Inside was
reported.
ROSSLAND ORB OUTPUT.
Rossland, Nov. 10,-The outnut, of
the Rossland camp for the week ending tonight was 5,000 tons divided as
follows: Le Roi 3,1,00 tons, Le Roi
No. '>. 100 tons. Rossland -Great Western 302. These figures bring the total

of Kotzebue sound for the distanco of
300 miles is one Immense bed of bitu
minous coal, enough to supply the
world for manv years. It Is a good
household coal. ���
THE MAYOR ERRED.
Ottawa, Nov. lfi.���Mayor Morris in
the police court this morning pleaded
guilty to having purchased liquor at
the Russell nouse during prohiblted-
hours and was fined J5. The oonvic-
tion disqualifies the mayor from holding ofliee for two years, and the
mayoralty ohalr thus becomes vacant.
Berlin, Nov. in.���Numerous anti-
Chaaiberlain meetings were held
throughout Germany this week and
there are no signs of an abatement ot
the movement. A number of meetings
adopted resolutions which were forwarded to the Imperial Chancellor
Count Von Hnelow. A direct semiofficial utterance on the subject is
still lacking,but a number of country
weelkicfl, whieh generally reflect the
views of lccnl officials, print simultaneously an article considered to 'nave
been inspired from Berlin, in which
the people nre warned against carrying too far the feeling of indignation
against Mr. Chamberlain nnd allowing it to assume the form of general
political hostility to Great Britain.
The writer of tho article rejects the
demand that the German government
eMer a protest in London against the
utterances of the Colonial secretary
and ask for satisfaction as this would
overshoot the mark.
The art;de ciieludes with saying
that public opinion in France passed
over the matter with light ridicule
and asserts tbat the Fren.-h would rejoice if all Germany with the chancellor at the head, "ran foul of tbe
English bully's weapon." More
significant is the circular which the
executive committees of the German
Veterans' union and Prussian
National Veteran's union, have, as
already cabled,issued depreciating the
the anti-Chamberlain demonstrations
and requesting the veterans to avoid
taking part in the movement.
In regard to the approaching action
for divorce Between the Grand
Duchess of Ilesso and the Grand Duke,
grandchildren of tho late Queen Victoria, the Cologne Gazetto says it
learns authoritatively that no third
party is involved, explaining that the
disagreement is owing to the incompatibility of their tempers and tastes,
and intimates that the lack of a male
heir also has a bearing on the cane.
The paper further says that the czar's
recently projected visit to Darmstadt
was omittei because ol the troubles
of the Grand Duke and Grand Ouches
of Hesse.
Emperor William has been hunting yesterday and today in l.elzlingen
forest near Stenal, Prussian Saxony,
with a large party of the highest
nobility. The emperor's special guests
on this occasion is the Grand Duke
Vladimar of Russia
All signs indicate that there will be
much suffering among tho working
classes in Germany this winter. The
authorities of this city estimate that
there nre 3.1,000 unemployed persons in
Berlin and from all sections of the
country come reports of people seeking work.
The latest experiments with electric locomotives between Berlin and
ZosBon show that tho engines have
readied a speed of 105 miles an hour.
The experiments have been suspended
until a heavior tract is built.
Views differ regarding the effect of
the Bundsraths action on the tariff
bill. Friends of the measure assert
that the prospects ol its adoption substantially in its present form tj the
Reichstag have greatly improved and
even its opponents do not disguise
their disappointment over the Bunds-
rath's acquiescence. The Centrist
press demands its speedy passage and
admits that the longer the debates
last the more diffloult will be adoption of the measure. Nevertheless a
long discusion is inevitable. The
Agrarian league pronounces the hill
to be absolutely unacceptable. The
league urges ruthless opposition to
the measuro In the Reichstag and is
sending circulars to its local branches
setting forth that all increases in in
dustrial duties must be rejected, unless
the full Agrarian demands nre conceded ,
Considerable   mystery   prevails hero
regarding  tho   meeting  of the direc-
The meeting was apparently suddenly
called. llerr Ballin, director Of the
llnmbury-Aincrican line, and llerr |
Platbe,president of the North German
l.lyod line, who came first, were received hy tho emperor and then tne
other directors and secretaries were
summoned. A representative of the
government also attended the meeting.
The Renes Journal says the ocean
Companies directors have held conferences and discussed ways and means
of preventing the increasing American
influence over German lines. The
paper adds that New York capitalists
have purchased   several million marks
uf shares  in the  Hamburg-American
lino during the last few weeks but the
excitement by the reportod purchase
of a New York company of over 5, -
000,000 marks of the North German
Lloyd company's obligation, tbe
Kleincs Journal considers unjustified,
since the purchase docs not affect the
shares. The Tageblntt today prints
an ollicial statement from tint North
German Lloyd company that this company lias sold obligations to the New
York Insurance company. Heir Ballin left Berlin this afternoon.
THE REFINERY
PROJECT
ARRESTED ON OLD CHARGE.
San Juan, Porto Rico, Nov. 10.���
The bail of Santiago Iglesian has been
reduced to $500 cash. His trial lias
been set for December -nil.
Santiago Iglesias was arrested on
Nov. 1 upon his arrival from New
York. His detention was due to his
non-appearance after having been
thrice summoned by the local courts
to appear in a case against bun
brought In July, 1000. He was
charged with conspiracy for persuading the local federation of labor to
order all labor organizations to go on
a strike unless they were paid in gold
al the same rate as they had been
paid in silver. A general strike accompanied by some violence followed.
This was nt the time of tho change
in Porto Kioan currency. When the
case against Iglesias was first called,
he was at large on his own recognizance. He did not appear tor trial
then or upon the date of two subsequent adjournments. When arrested
here last week his bail was first
placed at 8::,Olid.
PUGII.STS DISGUSTED.
San Francisco, Nov. 10.���Spoiling
men who witnessed last night's content between Jim Jeffries and Gns
Ruhlin agree that it was one of the
most disappointing fights ever put, up
by heavy weights of reputation. No
one expected such a tame termination and when Hilly Madden threw up
the sponge in the fifth round anger
shook the rafters of tbo building.
Referee Corbett plainly showed his
surprise and at first thought that the
sponge had neen thrown into Hie ring
by some practical joker. He said the
crowd paid a big admission fee and
were entitled to see the defeated mini
knocked out. Ruhlin was not badly
punished and bore no serious marks
of the fray. Jeffries said that had he
gone for Rnhlin tlio latter would not
have lasted two rounds. There was
about (20,000 bet. on the match.
Meeting of the Mine Owners
Has Been Call to Consider It.

TESTING NEW TORPEDO.
New York, Nov. 17.���The Gntb-
Mann aerial torpedo and the big IN-
inch gun were tried at the proving
grounds at Sandy Hook agnin today.
Two shots were fired and tlic heavy
charges of wot guncotton with whieh
eacli shell was charge, was detonated.
Tho first torpedo fired did not damage
the plate cr backing to any great ex
tent. Tho econd was more successful,
cracking the plate from top to bottom
and doing considerable damage to the
bracing.
NEW AIJTOMUILE RECORD.
New York, Nov. 10.���Henri Fournier, the French autosiobnlist, established a new world's official record
for one mile today oovcring tho distance in 51 4-5 seconds. The record
was made on a straight away nourse
ovei the Coney island bonlevard be
tween Prospect Park, Brooklyn, and
the ocean.
BRIGANDS COMING DOWN.
Sofia, Nov. 18,���The brigands who
captured Miss Stone have reduced the
amount of the ransom to 20,000 Turkish pounds, but tins is more than Mr.
Dickinson has at his disposal, nud it
is thought that they will reduce their
demands to 18,000 Turkish pounds. If
this sum is not raised there is no hope
of an immediate settlement.
A meeting of the silver lead mine
owners is to be held in this city on
December 4th. In the circular issued
calling the meeting it is stated that
a definite plan of action will be laid
before such meeting. This coupled
with the optimistic utterance of J.
Roderick Robertson a short tune slneo
when ho stated that the prospects for
securing the refinery had very much
Improved during tbe past few days
und that there was now every reason
to believe that an early start would -
be made in the erection of the refln-
erv, would Indicate that here is a
marked change of front and that the
project will assume form aud proportion at tin- forthcoming meeting.
It is known that Sir Thomas Shaug-
nessy, president of the Canadian
Pacific railway, is in favor of the
election of the refinery, as he knows
it wtiiilil centralize the lead business,
of this country at sumo suitable point
and insure his road more haulage
than it at present enjoys. Then, too,
he knows that it would bo of immense
benefit iu tin- development of the
silver lend mines as a ranch larger
tonnage than at prose'it wonld be ex- ���
tractcd because the profits to the mine
owner would be larger,
Tbe oarties nt interest are reticent
as to what is to come before the meeting. Following is a copy of the circular issued to the Silver lead millets.
Nelson, II. C, Nov. 14lh, 1001.
As you are aware, the Dominion
government last spring granted a
bounty foi the production of pig lead,
smelted and refined in Canada. It
was expected that this would have resulted in the establi luiient of a refinery and consequently in better prices
to the silver-lead mine Owners by
reason of lower treatment charge and
nn assured market for their product.
Unfortunately snob results have not
been attained, although strenuous
efforts havo been made. It Is deemed
advisable, therefore, to call a meeting
of representatives of all stiver lead
mines in British Columbia for the
purpose of fully considering the whole
question and faking such action as
will further nnil protect the interests
of all concerned.
A definite plan of action will be
laid before such Hireling.
You ure requested to .attend a meeting of representatives' of silver-lead
mines in llritish Columbia to be held

CROW'S NEST SOUTHERN.
Late advices from the Crow's Nest
Southern is that construction is making good progress Grading is almost
finished on the portion of the line
from Jennings, north to tho international boundary lino, and traoklay-
ing will shortly be commenced.
North of the boundary line there
has been some delay, occasioned
pi inc.pally by reason of some
dillleuites experienced in getting tho
permission of the government for
right of way, olo. Now, however,
comfortable cumin- have been erected
and work is making good progress.
It will take six months to finish the
road on Ibis fide of the line. Operation will be carried on all winter an
there will be but little snow or frost
to interfere. The contractors claim
that It Is difficult to secure enough
men. They say that they ure paying
fair wages, have comfoitable bunk
houses for the accommodation.of the

it bas been passed tli rung Ii the converter it carries from 99 to 08 pur cent,
copper and conns out in the form of
blistered copper, having lost from 500
to 900 pounds Weight of useless
material in tbe refining proee6S in the
converter. It still carries however
the gold and silver. This refined product is lint ou to New Ycrk for treatment. The saving is in the weight
which is eliminated iu the converter
and when from 500 to !I00 pounds IB
taken frrm each ton it amounts to
considerable when it has to be hauled
across tbe continent. Fur'her on the
Granby company will doubtless put in
a refinery sod the gold and silver will
then fie separated from the copper.
Thus by gradual steps all the processes are being introduced and the
refining and smelting industry of
Southern llritish Couinbia is becoming self reliant and will in fine be
able to get aluiig without outside
assistance. In this way it will reap
all the profits that there am in
mining, smelting and refining, give
employment to more men at home,
and becoming a greater factor in the
upiiuililing of thu country.
plbabkd with b. c.
Oliver Wethered, one of the directors in the London & B. C. Qoldflelds
.eeently visited the mining oamps of
Bothern llritish Columbia, and on his
return was interviewed by the British
Colombia Review ol London. Among
other questions he was asked. " How
does llritish Columoia from a mining
standpoint compare with Australia
and New Zealand'" and he replied,
"The percentage of mines, large and
small, that have made profits or have,
at all events, repaid the cost of their
development, is greater in British
Columbia than in any other colony 1
have yet visited."
He was ashed if he noticed any difference in the methods in vogue in
lt. C. whieh struck him as being more
advantageous than those which obtain in other colonies which he had
visited and lie replied tbat there was
no noticeable difference except that iu
tho lloundary country smelting is now
being named on at a lower cost than
in any other camps that he knew of.
Mr.Wethered's opinion is valuable
because he is one of the few representatives of llritish capital who bave
visited British Columbia possessing
an intimate knowledge of mining
undertakings in other colonics. His
indorsation nf the mines here when
he said that the percentage of mines
large ami small, whieh have made
profits,or have repaid the cost of their
development is greater here t.ian in
any colony that he has visited, should
serve a good mm in directing the attention of llritish investois in this
direction. The statement was made
after a stay of several weeks In
Southern British Columbia (luring
which Mr. Wethered visited the lead-
ing mining seotions and made a close
study of the'eonditions, and therefore
what he says should carry great
weight in London -where he is best
known. It is by far the strongest
recommendation that our mines have
yet received from a llritish mining
investor of prominence, and should
redound to their advantage and Induce
tbe investment of considerable capital
here. Other companies than the London & B. C. Uoldfields could with
advantage send their representatives
here so lhat they might see for themselves tho advantages which an-
offered for Investments in mining,and
understand something of the mining
pohsibilitics here.
Mr. Wethered is strongly in favor
of the election of a lead refinery here
and said that the erection of a refinery is of such importance to the
silver-lead properties that lie made
�� special point of seeing Sir Thomas
HbaughneBBy at Montreal, on the subject. He reports that he had a very
satisfactory interview with liinj and
be had every reason to hope that the
C. P. R, will erect a refinery at
Nelson.
J The project is one that would yield
a profit, build up the business of the
country and of the C, P. I!., and why
there should be any hesitation about
embarking in it is difficult to
determine.
tween Jeffries.the heavyweight champion, and Lublin, an aspirant for the
championship. The latter refused to
leave his corner when time was called
for tbe sixth round and the crowd
jeered him and culled him a quitter
and fakir. This contest was witnessed by 10.000 people who had paid
fr;oni 83 to $5 for admission and then
were entitled to witne-s the boxing
contest carried on on ils merits and it
should have been free of the suspicion
of fake or fraud It is such incidents
as these that bring boxing contests
into disrepute and if kept up will
lead to a total suspension of them, as
tbe publio will refuse to patronise
fraudulent exhibitions of this
character.
THE LhHIT BYLAW.
Afier careful consideration of the
city lighting question it is palpable
that something must be done to provide Ihe needed lights immediately.
The only available plan fur supplying
the light seems tn be by moans of a
contract wilh tbe West Kootenay
Light ,t Powor company. This contract inteferies in no wise with the
city's right to supply its citizens with
either light or power. The power,
which is lo be contracted for, is to be
used simply fo the purpose of supplementing the pies nt plant which is
Inadequate to supply current requirements. Under the contract the city
loses no rights.
Further on the city can make arrangements for building an electric
plant on the Kootenay river of a
sufficient capacity to light, the city
with a resever power for at least
four or five years to allow for the
natural growth of Nelson. The city
government deems it inexpedient to
negotiate a loan for the purpose
of creeling such a plant at
present, as it is claimed that
the city has a considerable indebtedness already anil to borrow 8150,000
for an electric plant now would
bring the debt up dangerously closo
to the limit. In any event the instal
ation of a plant would occupy at
least a year and perhaps longer. It is
claimed, too, that during the time
the contract with the West Kootenay
1'ower Sc Light company io In force
that a profit can be made each month
on the power which it furnishes.
This being the case it is tbe best
recommendation of the plan to lease
power for a limited period that, has
been put foward and taking all of the
facts into consideration it seems that
the best move the eity can make is to
enter into the contract, anil the ratepayers will make uo mistake in voting for the bylaw.
At the same time The Miner does
not recede from its position that the
oity'H right to furnish its citizens
with electric lights is a most valuable
asset and is one which under no consideration should ever be surrendered,
It believes, ton, tbat it would be for
the best interests of the city to erect
juHt as soon as posusible a plant of
sufficient capacity to supply tbe city
with all the llluminant that it may
need for the next four or five yea's.
The traffic managers of the Eastern
railways have decided to discontinue
the granting of passes to officials of
other roads. The proposal was made
to cut off even more passes,but finally
this much was agreed to. Undoubtedly the day of the free pass is passing
away, and when members of legislative bodies are required to pay their
way the geneal public may expect to
travel a little cheaper than they do
now.
BOXING IS DEGENERATING.
IMPORTANT MATTE CONTRACT.
The inclination on the part of the
mining and smelting companies operating in this country is to have as
much nf the rcduotion processes as
possible,done at'hotue.  The matte from
the smelter of the llritish Columbia
Copper company, which is located at
Greenwood, has hitherto been sent to
New York for refining. The Granby
company is erecting a convertjr, in
connection with its smelting plant
at Orand Forks, and has made a contract with the llritish Columbia Copper company for its entire matte
product which amounts to between 20
nnd 25 tons per day and which Is to
be doubled in January when tin-
second furnace is put in operation,
The Granby company will conveit
this matte into copper blistei in their
converter which will be in operation
in about six weeks. The matte as
It comes from tho smelter carries
from SO to Oil per cent, metal.     When
Everywhere there may be found
admirers ol glove contests where they
are conducted properly and honestly.
Where well trained mem of equal
strength, size and dexterity have a
boxing contest with gloves of a proper
size Oleic is nothing demoralizing,
dangerous or brutal, about it. It Is
simply a question of skill, Hgility anil
generalship���and a great deal of Ihe
latter quality can be shown to advantage In such contests���as to which
shall be the victor, yuch contests are
considered worthy of partronage by
large numbers of men of all classes
in communities where they take place,
and the public Interest In them is
very great. It is far uetter to have
the yonlh of the land trained in the
art of boxing than il is, as in some
countries, to have them adepts with
the knife and the revolver. An encounter with nature's weapons very
seldom results in anything more than
a fow bruises, while an affray in
winch weapons are used leads to the
most disastrous and doplorable of consequences. Boxing is a legitimate
sport and the public like to see it and
to read about it. On this continent
since men like Jack Oempsey and
John L. Sullivan have gone out of the
game a great deal of trickery has
crept in. The charge of fraud has
been attached to the names of Corbett,
Pitzsiinmons and McCoy and others
who of late have occupied the middle
of the pugilistic singe and they have
been accused of all sorts of dishonest
practices In connection with the glove
corite-sts in which they have engaged.

Cranbrook, Nov. IB.��� Tie llritish
Columbia government has been most
liberal tbis year as compared with the
past in the grant for roads to enable
thu prospectors to reach their several
claims in East Kootenay. Gold Commissioner Armstrong has had the expending of $20,850 for roads nnd
trails in East Kootenay during the
current year.
Under the supcrintendance of Donald Mackay a very great amount of
Work and a vast improvement to the.
roads and trails has been accomplished. (Icod main trails have been made
to Wild Horse creek, up the north
fork of St. Mary's and White Fish
creek, wagon road up Perry erecu and
the St. Mary's river, and in improving existing roads, widening side cu*s
aud reducing grades.
Iletween Jaffray and Elko, Mr.
Mackay made a new trail 1,000 feet
loop; 10 feet wide andput in two new
bridges, He put in one new bridge at
Sand reek and grade at Rook creek and
