The council then went into committee of the whole to consider the
four bylaws, All were put through
their tliiid reading without discussion
"cept as to some minor points of
detail until blyaw 102, for the raising
��M 150,000 was reached. The motion
'or the third reading was put forward
U.V Aid. Irivng, seconded by Aid.
Glletle. Aid. Selous stated that before
tills was put to the vote he would like
lo speak to the motion. The estimate
received from the oity engineer was
���ry close to the 8150,000 and did not
Provide for any emercgency occurring
"l"i the machinery or line. Also,
tbe city engineer said his estimate
waa bused entirely on the site selected
being procured as it presented pecu-
����r advantages over any other site.
*"" I take it that any body of business men in going into a thing of this
"���"Bnitiide, or even a thing of Iobs
"iSRiiilude, wish to know the facts
and figures connected with it. In this
Mae everything depended on the site,
which in this case was yet an uo-
��owu quantity. Also, In aubimtting
a bylaw to the people it must be remembered that the voters expect that
aDy bylaw passed by tbe council is
"io which the council wish to have
Passed by the people and the reputation of  the   members   is at stake  in
in fact so strong was the Impression
with some of tho members that It
could be erected fur this that lt was
proposed to ieduce the bylaw to that
amount. Another tiling, the blyaws
contemplated amount tu 8170,(lull while
the citv';. burrowing limit is about
8185,000. This leiievs at Hie utmost a
margin of 815,000. In the event cf
any emergency occurring, and which
nothing Is more probable, it simply
means that the city would have $150,-
OOo tied up in the plant without bc.ng
able to complete it, and yet having
the load of taxation entailed by the
amount borrowod. The taxes this
year were 14 1-2 mills, next year to
meet the present estimates they will
be 18 1-2. With the borrowing of
$150,000 they will be brought up to
28 mills, or practically three cents on
the dollar. Aid Selous also emphasized the necessity of having an expert in electrical construction to ic-
port on the matter.
To this Aid. Irivng stated that it
seemed to him that Aid Selous was
not willing to accept the reports of
anyone. He thought the estimate of
Mr. MeCulloch was a very liberal one,
and provided for all contingencies
necessary.
Alderman Selous said that in view
of the objections he had mentioned he
would move in amendment to the
motion that the third reading shonld
be laid over for six months.
Some further discussion followed
and then Mayor Fletcher stated that
ns there was no seconder to the
amendment brought by Al. Selous he
would put thc original motion,on this
all voted in the affirmative with the
exception of Aid. Selous.
Aid. Hamilton made a motion,
whioh was seconded by Aid. Selous,
that Mr. Strachan bo appointed returning officer and that voting on the
blyaws take place on Friday, Deem-
ber 20, voting in tbe west ward to
take place at the offloe cf Ward Bros.,
and in tbe east ward at the police
station.

WEATHERED THE STOKM.
Bark ISelson Reported Lost Picked up
by Walla Walla,
Victoria, Deo. 5.���Tne steamer
Walls Walla, Captain Hall, which
picked up the British bark Nelson off
Cape Flattery at 3 o'clock on Wednesday and towed her to Port Townsend,
arrived here this evening. The Nelson ship which was reported in dispatches from Astoria to have turned
turtle off the Columia river after she
had broken away from the tiug
Tatoosh. When sighted about 40
miles sooth east of Cape Flattery by
the Walla Walla the big ship was in
a dilapltated condition and was laboring heavily in the big sea which was
piling up under the effects of a southwest gale which was blowing. The
ship had a heavy list, her bulwarks
were gone and her head gear had been
carried away. She was flying a
signal which the officers of the Walla
WaUa read "Can you take rae ln
tow?" Thinking there must be some
mistake about this as the ship seemed
to be going along all right, Capt. Hall
passed under tbe stern of the vessel
and asked ihe c ptain what he want
ed. He then learned from the captain's own lips that he wanted to be
taken in tow and Captain Hall says
he asked bim to tow him to Seattle.
Capt. Hall replied that he conld not
do that but would take him into the
straits where he could secure a tug.
There was a heavy sea running and
a boat could not have lived in it, so
Capt. Hall steamed to wilhin 200
yards of the ship and rigging a fly
line threw it onto the ship. By this
means a steel hawser was stretched
between the two vessels. The steamer
proceeded all night under slow steam
and when morning broke they had
reached smooth water and better time
was made. Captain Hall sayB he was
afraid Jo drop his tow when they got
inside the cape as she had a decided
list, her cargo having shifted and her
erew were exhausted from trying to
straighten out the cargo and afterwards working at the pumps when
the vessel was taking water, there
being three inches in her hold. The
captain of the Nelson expressed himself as being muoh dissatisfied at the
action of the captain of tbo Tatoosh
in leaving him off the Columbia. He
says the weather was tough but tbe
night waa clear. The hawser wore
away as it passed under the ship*
cutwater. Upon his arrival in Seattle
this morning Captain Hall will libel
the Nelson for a large amount as salvage for the company and crow.
ELDERLY CLERGYMAN DEAD.
Brantford, Dec. 5.-Rev. James
Preston, a well known superannuated
Methodist minister, is dead.
Washington, Dec. 5.���Senator Mc-
Commas, Maryland, made an extended
and carefully prepared Bpeech in the
senate today wilh anarchy for his
theme and was followed by some
brief remarks by Mr. noar, Massa-
obussets, on the difficulties in the way
of dealing with anarchy.
Mr. McComma's remarks showed
careful examination of the legal
authorities. Ho maintained that congress had full power under the constitution to enact a federal law punishing with death any person killing
a president or assaulting the president with intent to kill, nr aiding,
inciting or procuring such an act. He
favored rigid provisions in the immigration laws for the deportation of
alien anarchists. Much of the speech
was devoted to an execration of tbe
dangerous doctrine of anarchy and
thc extent to which these doctrines
had been propagated within recent
years.
Senator Hoar's remarks were inter,
esting as coming from the venerable
chairman of the judicial committee
which will have much to do with the
framing of any legislation on this
subjeot. He said the difficulty was
that assassins of kings aud rnlers
always gloried in their crimes and
were in no wise deterred by the fear
of punishment. For this reason he
thought it was almost useless to multiply punishments. The most effeo
tive remedy, he suggested, would be
to have the civilized nations of thc
world agree upon some deso'ate spot
on the earth's surface to which all
anarchists who upheld assassination
or the overthrow of government
should be transported. In such a
community the anarchist could carry
ont his theories of living without a
government and the world would be
rid of his presence.
The senate passed a bill extending
the life of the industrial commission
until February 15 next to complete tne
work, it now has in hand. The committee which will consider an appropriate tribute to the late President
McKinley was announced. The senate adjourned nntil next Monday.
The Lead   Refinery   Question   Discussed   at
Length.
ANOTHER PACIFIC RAILWAY.
Judge Foster Ready to Build If
Provinces Put Up Money.
Montreal, Dec. 5.���It is now stated
on what appears to be good authority,
that Judge Foster, president of the
Oxford Mountain Railway company,
uonteraolates the extension of his
railway .system to the Pacific coast.
Evidently thc judge intends to compete with Mackenzie and Mann's
Canadian Northern. Thirty-four
miles of his trans-continental road
are already completed and he hopes to
obtain sufficient aid from the various
governments Interested to enable him
to build through the Yeliowhead pas
inside of three years.
OPENED TO NELSON, WASH.
LAWS AGAINST ANARCHISTS.
Bill Introduced to Provide Against
Obectionable Aliens.
Washington, Dec. 5.���Senator Burrows yesterday introduced a bill to
"provide for the exclusion and exportation of alien anarohists." The first
section of the bill is as follows:
"Tbat no alien anarchists shall
hereafter be permitted to land at any
port of the United States or be
admitted into the United States."
The second section directs the special board of inquiry to make diligent
investigation concerning the antecedents of any alien seeking admission
into the United States who is suspected of being an anarchist.
Section 3 provides for the return of
persons to their native countries who
have secured admission to the United
States contrary to law, and who have
afterward been found to be anarchists.
The fourth section provide? tbat
when any alien is convicted of crime
in a court, and it shall appear from
the evidence that he is an anarchist,
the presiding judge shall direct a further hearing.and if the judge is satis-
fled tbat the convicted alien is an
anarchist, on his examining in this
county will be a menace to the government or society in general, he may
direct that in addition to other punishment adjudged the convicted alien,
after undergoing such punishments,
Bhall be deported at the expense of
the United States to thc country from
whence he came.
Provision is made for the appointment of five immigration agents at
a salary of 82,500 each to make investigation in foreign countries concerning intended immigrants.
Tho annual meeting of the British
Columbia Mining association which is

refinery. Various plans were suggested and the matter was gone over from
various standpoints Several of the
members were seen after the meeting
to ascertain if any definite action had
been taken in relation, to the refinery,
but all were reticent and each said to
see Mr. Robertson, tbe president.
Mr. Robertson was seen and all be
wonld say in relation to thc refinery
was that the members had discussed
tbe question at length and at the conclusion of the day they were pleased
at the. prospect of the erection of a
refinery at an early date.
A rumor was current on the streets
during the day that the association
had under contemplation the closing
down of all the silver-lead mines,
owing to the low prices of both silver
and lead. Mr. Robertson was asked
if there wbb any foundation for tho
report. He answered that no such a
step as a general close down was
under contemplation.

APPROVAL
OF KINSMEN
More Appreciated by Salisbury Than Contempt
of Aliens.
Enthusiasm at Guildhall Banquet Over Colonial
Support.
LARGE CAPTURE OF BOERS.
Three Laagers Taken Wilh Very
Little Losb.
Pretoria, Deo. B.���The largest capture of Boers made in many months
occurred today, when three columns
secured an aggregate of 250 prisoners
General Bruce Hamilton, near
Ermeto; Major Hawkins in the Water-
bury distilot, and General Methune
in Northwest Transvaal, rounded up
three laagers with only a few casualties on either side.
London, Dec. 5.���At the Guildhall
banquet, Mr. Chamberlain was accorded a tremendous reception when
he rose to respond to Lord Rosebery's
teast to the colonies, but neither he
nor Lord Rosehery said anything of
international importance. Lord Salisbury, alone, referred to the topic of
whioh everyone was thinking,
namely, England's unpopularity
abroad. He said: No doubt it is
true, just at this moment, that we
have many enemies who are not very
reticieut in expressing their opinion,
but on the other hand, today's celebration whicb is largely due to thc
aotion and co-operation of Their Royal
Highnesses,has shown that we possess
iu the support of our distant kinsmen
an anproval and sanction, which to
us is worth infinitely more than all
the contempt and all the censure that
we may receive from other nations.
This remark of the premier was
greeted witb prolonged cheering, after
which he continued, saying: "I
cannot admit tbat they are the judges
of onr condnct, or that we can modify
our proceedings in deference to their
opinion. What we look to are the
opiums of our own kinsmen, wbo belong to our own empire. We have
received from all portions of that empire an indication that we have lost
nothing in the opinion they hold of
tbe justice of our claim."
22 HUTTON HEDGED ROUND.
Condition Imposed on His Accepting
Command ln Australia.
London, Deo. 5.- Major-General
Hutton in accepting tbe command of
the Australian troops had to agree
that be would give no publio entertainments and very little private, to
attend no public functions of state or
commonwealth and hold no communication with the governor-general or
the Imperial colonial office without
the consent of the minister of defence.
SCORES THE LANDED CLASS.
Berlin, Dee. 5.���The most insignifl-
cent looking man in the Reichstag,
Herr Bobel, broke its monotony today
and lifted the tariff debate to emotonal
levels. Herr Bobel spoke to breath -
loss galleries. He often provoked his
opponents but sometimes he even enthralled them. The wagon maker is
diininutve in body and has a Urge-
head. Pulling at his pointed chin
whiskers,he took the tribune after the
peasant farmer llerr Nissen and as
the representative of 2,800,000 voters
he lodged the socialist protest against
the "hunger duties'' as i,e called the
tariffs on grain. Herr Bobel raid
there were two nations in the German state, the plunderers and the
plundered.
"The Imperial Chancellor, Count
Von Buelow spoke for tbe former, I
am speaking for the latter. The proposition of the government was to pay
a tax of between 800,000,000 and 700,-
000,000 marks on food in orcer to
make more profitable the occupation
ol 15 per cent, of the people. Only
one-ninth of the grain is imported.
The bill is intended, not for the
betterment of the farm laborer, but
for the betterment of the landlord. If
any landlord is not getting on well
now, it ib because of large hunting
parties, gambling, well filled wine
cellars, sons in crack cavalry regiments and town houses in Berlin."
Aftor some heated Interruptions,
Reichstag adjourned.
PRIOR OUT OF POLITICS.
(SI-HCIAI. TO TUB MINER.)
���Victoria, Dec. 5.���Col. Piior tonight
announced   his   intention of   retiring
tri/m polities altogether, for the pres-
i out at least.
SETTLERS FROM IOWA.
Winnipeg, Dee.5.~An exceptionally
large party of settlers lrom Iowa arrived today on the Great Northern
train from the south. J. F. Tennant,
Manitoba immigration agent, was in
charge of the party whioh consisted
of abont 60 persons in a special car.
Some of the party are settlers who
have already purchased and in the
Canadian west and others are prospectors who represent parties in Iowa
and will investigate for themselves
b foro making purchases. These gentlemen all state that there is a great
interest manifested in Mantiba among
the Iowa farmers and a large influx
ol these desirable settlers is eonfl-
dently looked for next spring.
CAUGHT IN AN ICE FLOE.

Alphose Richard, lighthousekecper at
Brandy Pots and hiB assistant, attempted to oross from the island to

ROYALTY REMEMBERS  BAKER.
Magnificent   Tokens   oi   Appreciaion
From the Prince.and Party.
Montreal, Dec. 5. ���That pleasant
memories of their interesting tour
through Canada still linger with the
Royal party, was evidenced by the
arrival yesterday of two mysterious
looking boxes at the head offices of
the C. P. R. here. They were addressed to W. R. Baker, assistant to
the second vice-piesident, who accompanied Their Royal Highnesses on the
journey across the continent to Victoria, B. C., and return, and to whose
good offices waa largely due the successful accomplishment of a 7,000 mile
trip without unpleasant incident of
any kind whatever. In one of the
boxes, a heavy oak one, was a massive
silver jardiniere on a handsome ebony
base, a magnificent specimen oi the
silversmith's art. It bore tbo Royal
arms and the following inscription:
"To W. R. Baker, Esq., from the
Duke and Duchess of Cornwall and
York, In remembrance of their
journey across Canada by the Canadian Pacific railway, 1901."
In the other box was a large silver
cigarette box sent by the ladies and
gentlemen of the Royal suite, all of
whose autographs, including that of
Prince Alexander of Teck, were
uniquely insoribed on the lid, whilst
tbe following pleasant greeting was
engraved on tho front: "To our friend
W. R Baker, in remembrance of
many happy days spent on the C P.
R. In Septembir and October, 1901."
With these valued gifts were letters
expressing Their Royal Highnesses'
and Ihe suite's appreciation of Mr.
Baker's unceasing attention and forethought, and tbeir gratitudo for his
efficient serlvccs on the memorable
occasion. These Royal souvenirs aro
both a recognition of Mr, Baker's
social qualities and personal worth
and a deserved tribute to his efficiency
in his official capacity as representaiive
of the great Canadian railway over
whioh the Prince und Prince's of
Wales, had, it is pethaps not too much
to say, one of the most enjoyable experiences of their lives.
PAPER GOES UP.
Toronto, Dec. 5.���Tho Canadian
Papermaker'a association met here today and decided to advance tho price

BUSY FACTOEIES.
From the manufacturing centres of
Canada the news is of the most cheering character, as the factories, in
many instances, are heing run night
ami day and oiders for goods are on
hand for months ahead. This very
desirable condition of affairs has been
preaviling throughout the entire year
and all the signs point to a continuance for a long time to come. It is
with pleasure it is noted that the
manufacturing (industries are assuming very largo importance ard that
they are generally in a thriving condition. They are fostered by a wise
and equitable system ot protection and
are not only supplying the home market, but are making, ln a number of
instances, wares for export. One ot
thc first essentials for successful manufacturing is a goud sized and reliable
home market. This assures a profit
where the factories are properly operated and if more goods are made than
can be consumed at home the surplus
can be exported and sold in competition with the goods of other nations
in the marekts of the world. With a
prosperous and enterprising population of 5,500 people to supply with
wares the Canadian manufacturers have a good sized home field to
work in and one In which they have,
by reason of the protective tariff in
force, what virtually amounts to a
monopoly. Under B'ich circumstances
it is no wonder that the manufacturers
are prospering or that their factories
are running overtime to supply the
demand tbat comes from home and
inroad.
Woodstock has a number of manufacturing oonccrns in its midst aud in
order to show bow actively engaged
Canadian factories are tho following
is taken from thc Woodstock Sentinel
Bevlew: "The furniture factory, Mr.
Andnraon says, has been running overtime for months and has orders
enough to keep it busy till the end of
the year. Mr. Bain declares the past
eleven months the best they have had
in the Bain Wagon Co.'s works. For
one-quarter of the year they had to
run day and night. In turning out
boilers and engines Wbitolaw's
foundry has been well employed. An
addition four stone* high to thc
Thomas Organ and Piano factory, and
a new 120-horse engine will by 1st
January nc*t increase its capacity to
390 intruments per month. It is now
120 per month, They are running
mainly for export, and are two month
behind with orders. The Knrn oompany have 150 piano orders ahoad, and
15 car-load of organs for export. They
are     working     overtime. Having
doubled its capacity, the Hamilton
Oak Extract Tanning Co , of Woodstock, has been running day and
night. The Box company, the Hub
factory, the Woodstock Wagon Co.,
Bichards' Soap works, Hay aud Co.,
Dean and Wcstlake, the Wind Motor
Co., and the Stewart Stove Co., nre all
busy and apparently prosperous."
CONDITIONS ON THE BAND.
A number of the representatives of
the mining companies of South Africa
are in the UuitedJHtntes for the purpose of Inspecting the latest improvements in deep mining. They report
that it will be some time before the
output of gold in thc Rand will reaob
what it was before thc commencement
uf hostilities. In August, 18118, 485,4115
ounces of flno gold were produced, ln
anticipation of the early cessation of
hostilities and immediately after the
surrender of Johannesburg lsrgo
orders for material wire sent by the
companies to replace that which bad
disappeared or deteriorated during the
the ports adjacent to the Rand have
not been forwarded owing to the continual raids made by thc Boers. The
warehouses at Delagoa bay and Durban are filled to overflowing with
these shipments. Besides this tbe men
who worked iD the mines have been
dispersed. In October, lS03,tbe mines
employed 110,000 blacks and 10,000
whites and of these only a small percentage are left. There were 51 milling plants en the Band at the beginning of the war and only one of
these* was destroyed. Several of tbe
plants were operated by thc Boers to
provide funds with which to carry on
the hostilities. The highest number
of stamps operating was in October,
1898, when between 4,000 and 5,000
stamps were dropping. The value of
the burface plants of the mines on the
reef is estimated to be $125,000,000.
It is thought it will take over a year
after pclce is fully restored to get tbe
mines iu operation to the same extent
as before the trouble began.
In tbe meanwhile the London operations should transfer their attention to
British Columbia where with the expenditure of the same amount that has
been put into surface plants in the
Rand would produced the most wonderful ot results. Here there is a
country where there are no racial antipathies and where life and property
are secure. The pacification of South
Africa, even after peace haB been formally declared will occupy a considerable time and there will be more or
less bloodshed and destruction of
property, accompanying the periodical outbreaks, all tending to give uncertainty to all sorts of industrial
enterprises and particularly to mining. Ou tho other hand, British
Columbia is a oountry with large
areas of metal bearing ground and
naturally should occupy the attention
of the British investor more than it
does. With conditions as they are in
South Africa and as they are certain
to be for some time this country is far
the best to mine ln. Even under ordinary conditions we believo the same
expenditures will bring the larger results here.
ED1TOKIAL NOTE?.
A lamentable ignorance of Canada
exists in England, nut the department
of the British government which deals
especially with colonial matters should
have some little idea of the constitution and the geography of the
Dominion. This department recently
made the announcement: "The King
has been pleased to app ova of Count
Franceses Mazza as consul-general of
Italy at Montreal, with jurisdiction
over Canada, Nova Scotia New BrunS'
wick and Prince Edward Island."
A despatch from Ottawa announces
that the minister of ra ways is tak
ing steps to compel a ro otion in the
freight rates charged by the White
Pass aud Yukon railway. The rates
are exorbitant, and should be de'
creased. The traffio enjoyed by the
road is large and as the traffic that
will continue for many years to come
there is no reason for keeping the
prices up to the present figures. It
has been a principle with.some railways to charge all the traffic will
stand, but the policy of the road in
question seems to be to charge more
than the traffic can stand. Their
methods savor more of the highwaymen than those of common carriers,
ard doubtless the Federal government
will find some means of compelling
them to oe more reasonable.
That "Peace hath her victories no
lesB renowned than war" is aptly
illustrated in the case of Ceclle
Morand, to whom, a dispatch from
Paris states, has been awarded tbe
"Prize for Virtue," valued at 1,000
francs. She ia a seamstress who Is a
dwarf and lame, and who, from the
age of 1.1 years, has supported a paralytic father, a sick mother and ten
brothers and sisters. The unsolflsh-
nes? of l.ittlo Dotrit, as described by
Dickuns, who cared for her father and
other and preserved a celestial purity
of character though living among
scenes of selfishness and shame, of
passion and crime, though imaginary,
are found In roal life in thu strugiges
of this crippled French girl who has
so nobly done her duty to her helpless
and dependent relatives. Tho Prize
of Virtue was well bestowed. The
incident reveals that truth is often
stranger than fiction.

derived from it. I was a slave, drained
with putrid sore throat and asthma for teu
years. I despaired of ever being cured. 1

Gentlemen : I write this testimonial from a sense of duty, having tested the
wonderful effect of your Asthmalene, for the cure of Asthma. My wife has
been afficted with spasmodic asthma forth" past 12 years. Having exhausted
my own skill as well as many others, 1 chanced to see your sign upon your
windows on 130 th street, New York, I at onoe obtained a bottle of Asthmaleno.
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
and she is entirely free from all symptoms. I feel that I can consistently re
commend the medicine to all who are afllioted witb this distressing disease.

AN OPEN LETTER
!^���!  iALL OVER THE WORLD
Mayor
Fletchter Pays His  Respects to
John Houston.
Editor    Miner.-Today's    Tribune
n    the following:     "Why did
Jjrrnsiacration    of   the    reflnery
virion   which  was left to a oom-
"""   Houston   and   Frank Fletcher,
orsbip's views aa to the

plant aud   business?
nentioncd in this
worsnip   entirely
Minbcrs ot the oommlttee when the
negotiations were pending with the
refinery people; thoy were not invited
to any of tho conferences; they were
looked on by his worship as sort Of
liflh wheels to his band-wagon."
']'roly "the voice is Jacob's voice,
but the hands are the hands of Esau,"
deception and deliberate falsobood.
Ibe faotH regarding the proposed re-
finery are as follows I Last summer I
wnspersonally approached with reference to the building of a refinery in
or near the town. I immediately
called a meeting of representative
business men which was held iu P.
Hums olliee and about twelve attended. The matter was fully discussed
and a proposal outlined, and a committee, appointed who met and discussed matters after the meeting. As
it seemed desirable to keep tbe negotiations quiet it was decided that I
should go to Trail to consult Mr.
Aldridge which I did. I then called
another meeting held at the Bank of
Montreal at whioh all were piesent
ami matters were brought down to
an actual proposal In writing. I drew
np tilts proposal with Mr. Houston
111 tho form of a letter the following
morning offering the proposed refineiy
company as follows:
1st, free site; 2nd, 200 miners'
Inches oi water delivered at the site
free; 3rd, electric horsepower provided
the city could supply it, at cost; 4th,
a cash bonus of $50,000.
The final draft of this latter was
submitted to John Houston for signature.���Mr. Fowler was out of town���
and it waa signed by myselt aa mayor,
followed by JOHN HOUSTON, Roderick Robertson, G. V. Holt, W. W.
Boer and others. I may add that I
had previously secured an option on a
site, the engineers had surveyed it
and every stage of the proceedings
were known and discussed by John
Houston, AND HIS SIGNATURE to
the written proposal which was the
result of all the negotiations, PROVES
HIS        UTTERANCES BEFORE
QUOTED TO BE FALSE TO A
LETTER.
At thc time of the prospect of semiring the refinery no one thought of the
electric light plant, as the other matter was felt of paramount importance,
and the terms offered meant at least
an issue of bonds by the city to tbe
amount of $75,000, which would give
the city another pay roll, and tbe expenditure within its midst of some
8200,000. Our offer waa considered
good, and the question of building a
refinery plant was then a matter of
the necessary ore supply, where it
still stands.
It was plain to everyone that as the
city's borrowing powers were limited
to *Ni.iinii that something had to wait
until natural growth increased that
limit, hut the refinery was of the first
importance to the growth of the Oity.
The suppl; of electric power was not
of vital importance lu tbis discussion,
��nd in fact WAS ACTUALLY OUT
OB1 THE QUESTION, as the city had
NO BIGHT TO SUPPLY POWER
OUTSIDE THE MUNICIPALITY,
where the reflnery site secured was
sltnstod, and the smelter company
w"e quite willing to take power from
the West Kootenay Power and Light
Co., if not obliged to under their existing contract.
John Houston, in his daily effusions, is always and has always been,

Tho citizens of Nelson this evening
will have au opportunity of suolng a
remarkable dramatization of thc
great novel Quo Vauls. The book
was tbe raastorpiuce of a master mind,
and has achoived unprecedented popularity among all the classes of readers.
The version of the play which will be
presented here follows tho book
closely, and in action admits of olab-
orato stago Bcttngs, and startling
effects. The play opens iu tho villa
of Pctrmiius, and introduces manv
magnificent scenes, among them being
the famous statue scene, tho Gardun
of Aulus l'lautus; Nero's Palace at
Hume; the Coliseum, and tho burning
and destruction of Rome, the latter
being considered the most stupendous
representation ever put upon the
stage. An especially capable vast
has been engaged for Quo Vadis and
tbe rolos arc well sustained. The
main plot of the play is of necessity
a sombre one, yet the beautiful love
story of Lygi* runs throughout it,and
it is   further  brightened by flashes of
wit and merriment.

Military men, while admitting the
force of the parallel, assert that the
moral is artificial, since Lord Kitchener during the last year has been
attempting to carry out the French
tactics in Mexico, but has been
thwarted by the persistent hostility
of a wary foe armed with Manser
rifles and bent upon tiring out their
pursuers.
Military mon who know mar.y
secrets from the correspondence of
officers in South Africa and thc familiar talk of returning soldiers assert
that Lord Kitchener's officers do not
oo-operate well with him nor with one
auother: and that there iB constant
friction, witb unceasing grumbling
and discontent. There is a growing
feeling that Lord Kitchener's talents
for organization, so conspicuous in
the Soudan, have ' been a source of
weakness and dissatisfaction in Sooth
Africa.

URAIN-FOOD NONSENSE,
Another ridiculous food fad has beon
branded by the most competent
authorities. Thoy have dispelled the
silly notion that ono kind of food is
needed for brain, another for miiBoles,
and still another for bones. A correct diet will not only nourish a particular part of the body, but it will
sustain every utber part. Yet, however good your food may be, its nutriment Is destroyed by indigestion cr
dypepsin. You must prepare for their
ppcarance or prevent their coming by
ttlcing regular doses of Oieen's August
Flower, the tavonte medicine of the
healthy millions. A few doses aids
digestion, stimulates the liver to
healthy aotion, purifies the blood, and
wakes you feei bnoyant and vigorous.
