PROSPECTS
FOR THE YEAR
Board of   Trade Discusses
Conditions In
Mining.
Annual Election of Officers
and Some Other
Business.
The annual meeting of the Hoard of
Trade for the election of officers and
other yearly business was held in the
board rooms. Tbe following gentlemen were present: 3 V Holt, T G
Procter, W A Macdonald, J Roderick
liubertson, Thoburn Allan,H Byers, P
Chapman, E Ferguson, J M Lay, F
Starkey, J J Campbell, C Hillyer, E
11 Applowhaite, W W Beer, A R Sherwood, S A Kelly, and Secretary Swan-
nell.
After the leading of the minutes of
he previous meeting the president, Mr
Holt, read his report for the year. In
it he stated that he was afraid tbat
the past year could not be considered
to have been a very prosperous one for
the district and tbat the prospects for
the present were not much better. In
a mining country, however, changes
occurred with such startling rapidity
that it was not at all unlikely that before long there would he a considerable change for the better, As to tbe
causes of this depression, In his opin
ion thc principal had been the difficulty of finding a market for the produjt
of the silver-lead mines, the low
prices for silver, lead and copper, and
the failn j of the London and Globe
Finance and the British America Corporation, which had had a very bad
effect on the minds of the British investor in B. C. mining stocks.
As to tbe first of these causes tbe
building of the lead reflnery at Trail
would have a very good effeot, although he was sorry that tbey had not
aa yet, been unable to seenre it for
NelBon. The seoond was already
mendiog as the prioes for lead and
Bilver were rising and would probably
be followed by copper, If, however,
it was found that tbe prices of these
metals were going to remain permanently low,with the larger deposits of
mineral In the district there was nothing to feur as to its ultimate prosperity It might be necessary to reorganize tbe system of mining materially
reducing the expenses in connection
with supplies, wages, and other mat-
fcrs.
In regard to the wholesale trade of
the city, although business was good,
he regretted to say that it was not
making the return on the capital invested that it should, which he attributed to the railway freight rates at
present existing. Ho then read a number of statistics relating to the city
and provinoe for 1001 which have already been published in The Miner.
In conclusion he recommended that
the bourd meet quarterly, instead of
once a month, and also tbat a standing committee be formed to deal with
any trade difference* tbat may   arise.
Tho socretury ol the boarc then read
his repott for the year dealing with
the flnnnvoB and business transauted
'luring the year, which was received
anil adopted,
Thc names of Messrs. Morrison and
Caldwell wore proposed for member-
��� !'ip , and accepted by  acclamation,
The election of officers was the next
business to come np, bnt as the old of*
curs were eleoted by acclamation this
did not occupy nuoh time. Tbe ex-
ccutlve committee appointed consistod
��f Messrs. Fowler, Lay, Prooter, By-
"���'��. Robertson, Campbell, Croasdaile,
Umont, Hunter, Hillyer, Starkoy and
liner,
A pctltitlon wns forwarded to thc
member of the distriot, W. A. Galli*
ber, for transmission to Ottawa, asking that on the completion of tho now
bridge over tbe Columbia at Rob-
sun.tliut a mall clerk bo placed on tho
run between Nelson and Midway, to
facilitate tho handling of mall
through the district.
A letter was read from the Dominion Hoard of Trado stating that as
there was a number of important
questions to come before It In which
British Columbia was interested, it
womd be a good thing if the Nelson
board could join, sending representatives  tu the meeting which waa to be
held at Ottawa, some time shortly.
W. A. Macdonald said rhat be
thought that the proposal was a very
good ono, and thought it advisable
tnat same action should be taken on
it. The rcommendations of the Dominion board would undoubtedly
carry great weight in tbe house, and
there could not be too many representatives from Kootenay.
J. J, Campbell said he agreed with
Mr. Macdonald entirely. At the recent meeting of tho Canadian Manufacturers' association in Montreal, the
lead duty question was shelved entirely, simply because there was no one
there to r. present the mining interests. At the present critical condition of things it was most important
that tbe claims of the district should
be kept to the front, and consideration
could not be expected unless there
were representatives there too press
those claims.
It was decided that arrangements
should be made so that Nelson should
be represented, and the matter was
left in the hands of the council, with
power to act.
A letter was read from the Kaslo
board relating to the resolutions
wbich it intended to present at the
coming meeting of the Associated
Boards of Trade of Southern British
Columbia.
Messrs. Procter and Byers were
elected to represent Nelson at the
meeting of thc associated boards.
R. Robertson gave notice of his intention to move at the next meeting
of the board that the monthly meeting
should be suspended, and that hereafter the beard should meet every
quarter instead.
W. A. Macdonald then moved a vote
of thanks to Mr. Holt aod spoke of
his many services to the board and
the active intorest he had taken in it
since Its organization. Be made a
number of complimentary allusions
to Mr. Holt, which were heartily applauded by the members.
Mr. Holt spoke a few words of appreciation, and dealt witb the necessity of the retail merchants of tht
town taking more interest in the
Board of Trade, and said be wished
that more of the business men would
appreciate the great advantage a good
board of trade was to a city.
WILL BRITAIN
TAX GRAIN
London Newspapers Seem to
Be Favorably Inclined
That Way.
Thirty  Men Wanted to Replace Dismissed Volunteers.
Montreal, Jan. B.��� Thc Star's London cable says: Sir Robert Giil'en,
ex-presldent of the Statistical society,
who has been long associated Witb
the G ladatonian school of finance,
significantly suggests in tho Times today that tbe income tax be reduced
from I4d to I0<1 in the pound, whioii
would mean loss of ��10,00,000 to the
national exchequer and that ��20,000,-
000 bo raised by indirect taxation including a tax of a shilling per quarter
on wheat and oue shilling pur load on
lumber.
Tho Westminister Gazette, a pillar
of free trade, says: If wc could be
certain thnt this is not the thin end of
thc protectionist wedgo, we might
agree.
Thc Ht. James Gazette (Tory and
protectionist) says : A grain tax
touching tlie central article of our
commercial creed would raise opposition which tho advantage to bo gained
would not make it worth while to
provoke.
The chancellor ot exchequer, will
it adds, regard Sir Robert Giffon's agitation us nn indication of thu reserve
to be drawn upon in oasu of ueceislty
in addition to, instead of in substitution for, the present sources of revenue.
Lord Strathcona has fully resumed
official duties.
Toronto, Jan. 0.���The Canadian

MINE OWNERS.
Several Important Matters to Come Up
at Their Meeting.
W. H. Aldridge, of the Trail smelter, Paul Johnson of the Greenwood
smelter, James Cronln of tho St.
Eugene mine at Movie, F. J. Parker
of the Brooklyn and Stemwinder in
Phoenix, Frank Bobbins of the North
Star mine in East Kootenay, S. V.
I'arrish of the I). C. mine, Boundary,
Edmund S. Kirby of {the War Eagle
and Centre Star mines in the Rossland
camp and other mine owners are in
the city. It is understood tbat a
meetiug is to be held today, but for
what purpose is not fully understood,
lt was rumored, however, that the
matter of the refinery was to come
np. Another question which will
probably be disoussed is the Senator
Penrose's bill wbich has been introduced in the United States congress
for the purpose of protecting the sil
ver miners of that country. The bill
provides for a duty of 25 per cent, on
ore entering the United States either
in the ore, bullion or as pure silver.
One member hinted last night that the
question of wage would be brought up
lie stated that owing to the prevailing
low prices of silver, oepper and lead
that an effort might be made to cut
wages until these metals had risen in
price.
STILL IN DOUBT.
After Candidate J. A. Kirkpatrick
had obtained his certificate from the
city clerk, as mentioned in Wednesday's issue of The Miner, he is said to
have applied to E. A- Crease, P. M.,
for the necessary order to have this
name paced on the voters' list. Mr.
Orease deoided that it was a matter
which it would be better for all concerned, so that a judicial decisions
conld be put on record, should go before a county court judge. Hu therefore recommended Mr. Kirkpatrick to
make application to bis honor, Judge
Forin. Judge Forin has telegraphed
that be will be in Nelson on Saturday
morning and will hold chambers then,
when he will hear this and all other
applications witb regard to the voters'
list of the ity of Nelson, so that until
then it is impossible to say whether
Mr. Kirkpatriok can be a candidate
for mayor.
W. G. Gillett haa secured the contract from W. R. Seatle for the extension of tbe Houston block on which
work is to be started shortly. Tbe
work ia to oost 13,S00, and will consist of extending thu building to the

The addition will be ot tbe same style
as the rest of the building, and will
make a considerable improvement in
the apdearunce of the whole.
The high school building has been
completed and Is now ready for uae

SHOWS HER SUfEMACY.
Chinese Empress   Gives   Audience
Forbidden Oity.
Pekin, Jan. 0.���The dowager empress of China asserted her complete
supremacy today by giving an audience in the most sacred hall in the
Forbidden city. The rules of the dynasty forbid women to enter tbis ball
and the dowager-empress has never
before violated its sanctity. The emperor will rec< ive tbe foreign diplomats in this hall. Officials believe
the dowtager -empress to be paving the |
way to be present on tbis occasion in
order to prevent any communications
between the diplomats and the emperor oxcept under her censorship. The
dowager empress is preparing to send
letters to the ministers of the foreign
powers here expensing her desire for
the maintenance of friendly relations
and her unwillingness to receive advice in audience.
Progressive Chinese officials explain
tha the dowagorjempress disapproved
of boxerism, that her wishes in this
matter were overrulled and her edicts
garbled. It is possible that General
Tnng Fuh Siang, the notorious anlt-
foreigqer whose decapitation has been
ordered by the dowager empress in an
cdiot, has already been beheaded.
The Tartar general in Kan Su prov-i
ince who was ordered to carry out this,
sentence, has telegraphed that he has
imprisoned Tung Fuh Siang in his
yatnen and asked for instructions.
To this message, the dowager empress replied ordering the Tarta r general to carry out her edict.

WALLA WALLA IN.VJBSTIQATION.
Captain of the Max Says There Was
No Fog on Tnat Night.
San .Francisco, Jan. 8.���The offioial
investigation into tne cause of tbe
collision between the steamer Walla
Walla and the French bark Max laat
Thursday was commenced today before tbe local inspectors. Capt. Ben*
oist, of the Max, submitted |t written
staiement to tbe.effect that at the tinae
of the accident bis mate was on
watch There was no fog. The look
out reported the lights of a steamer on
the starboard bow. The mate thereupon notified him and he went upon
deck and seeing the light of the steamer, he went into his cabin to dress.
While so engaged tbe collision occurred. The lights, of his room were
burning brightly. Immediately after
the steamer was strpek be rushed on
deck. As the forepart of bis ship was
filling rapidly, he was too busy in issuing orders for the closing of tbe
compartments to.pay any attention to
the other vessel. Ho ordered a torch
lighted, however, to let the steamer
know where he was, but not seeing
anything of tbe latter fifteen uiiutues
after the accident he concluded that
she had proceeded.

Congress Decides to Build
Canal Through Nicaragua.
Appropriations Made to Carry oa Initial
Work.
Washington, Jan.'_9.��� The Hepburn
Nicaraguan canal bill passed the
house tbis afternoon by a practically
unanimous voto. Only two members
out of 310 voted against it. The op-
postion in committing tho government
to the Nicaraguan route attempted to
secure amendments to lodge with the
president the discretionary power to
purchase and complete the Panama
canal if it could be purchased lor 840,-
000,000. The test came on tbo first
vote when the advocates of an alternative route polled 102 against 170 rotes.
At each succeed ng vote their strength
dwindled until Mr. Cannon (Ills.)
under whose leadership the fight was
mado, was unable to get the ayes and
nays on a motion to recommit. All
other amendments failed anl Ihe bill
passed exactly as it came from the
committee. None of the votes, except
that on the final passage of tbe bill
waB a record vote. The debate, which
preceded the taking of the final vote,
wns mnde memorable by a clash between Mr. Hepbnrn, the author o the
bill and Mr. Cannon, chairman Ithe
appropriations committee. On a nl
previous occasions they have measu
swords over canal legislation. w
years ago a similar bill was passed by
a vote of 224 to 6.
The bill, as passed today, authorized
the president to secure from the states
of Costa Rica and Nicaragua on behalf ot the Unitod States control of
suoh a portion of the territory belonging to said states, as may be desirable and necessary, on which to excavate, construct and protect a canal
suitable to the wants ol modern navigation and commerce and appropriates such a sum as may be necessary
to secure the control of said territory.
Section two authorizes the president
after securing control of the neede territory io direet the secretary of war to
constrnct such canal from tbe Caribbean sea at a point near Grey town, in
Nicaragua, by way of Lake Nicaragua
to a point on the Pacific ocean near
Brito and also to oenstruet proper harbors at the termini of said canal and
to make necessary provision for the
defence of tbe canal and lurbors.
Section three and four authorize the
president to make such surveys as may
be necessary und to employ suoh persons in constructing the canal as may
to bim seem wise, and directs that in
the construction of tbo canal the river
San Juan and Lake Nicaragua shall
oo used as far as thoy are available,
Section five authorises tbe president
to guarantee to the governments of
Costa Rica and Nicaragua tbe use of
tbe canal and harbors upon terms to
be agreed upon by all vessela of said
states and by citizens thereof . The
last section makea a present appropriation of 810.000,000 to carry on this
work and authorizes the secretary
of war to enter into proper contracts
for material and work as may be
deemed necessary thorefor, snch work
and material to be paid for as appropriations may be made from time to
time. Tho section fixes the aggregate
cost at $180,000,000 to be drawn from
the treasury on warrants ol the president.
It Is understood that Spenoe Eddy,

RECKLESS  CHARGES.
As the campaign progresses it be
comes more patent that Mayor Fletuher
and his supporting aldernianic candidates are stongly in favor with the
public. There is nothing in the public
record of Mr. Fletcher as alderman
mayor that is not creditable to hi
An attempt has been made to make
some political capital out of the fact
that under his administration it was
desired to reinforce thc city plant,
whioh furnishes the lights,with pjwer
from a concern which generates it,but
though a large majority of the rate,
payers voted in favor of thc propo
sition it was defeated because it laok
ed the throe-flflhs majority necessary
for Its adoption. There was not
trace of an attempt to take away tr.m
the city any of tho rights which it
possessed to furnish its citizens light
and power, hut this incident haB
been magnified and made much uf and
being used to aid Mr. Kirkpatrick
aud his supporters. Tho utter lack
ol anything on which to base the wild
and reckless charges that arc being
made and the manifest animus that
marks the oonstant reiteration of
them are too well understood for
hem to have any effect.
The  candidates   for   aldermen who
are supporting Mr. Fletcher   aro   well
and   favorably   known   and   may   be
relied on to administer  the affairs  of
the oity,   if elected,   in an honest and
businesslike  manner.     Thoy huve too
much personal interest  ln   Nelson   to
ever barter away any of Its rights and
the foolish and   irresponsible  charges
that   aro   being made  against    them
that   thoy   are   the candidates of   tho
West Kootenay l'ower and Light company   is   too silly to  be even consid-
red.   Surely such men  as W. J. Wilson   alderman John Paterson,   alder-
man, W. (1. Oillott, alderman, Harold
Selous,   alderman .1, Hamilton and J.
Elliott   have   the   full   confidence of
their fellow citizens and ean be trusted to run   tlic affairs ol the oity   lion-
estlv and properly.     There is nothing
in tlieir reeurds since  they have   lived
in this oity or befoie thoy   came  here
to justify even a susplrioii   that  they
would do otherwise than that which is
honest   and right, if elected   to   carry
on the affuirs of tlie municipality during the bresent year.  It is,   therefore
but little short of monstrous that tlieir
motivcs.iiHplring to alclormanic honors
(should   be   impugned,and that   before
they have shown any signs of dishonesty thut they should DO charged with
being the allies of  nu  eleotrio  power
oompany and engaged in a conspiracy
with it to   deprive Nelsnn of   its right
to furnish   tho eltlxens   with  electric
light and power.
This attempt to blacken the character of Mayor FletobW and his supporting aldermanie candiatei should and
will be resented at the polls by electing them by a large majority.

Be served in the councils of 1897, 1899
and was mayor in 1901 and on every
occasion hid actions in civic matters
have shown him well fitted to be con-
tinned in the honorable position
hicb be haa so ably filled during
the past year.
In theWest Ward.Mayor Fletcher is
supported by Aid. John Hamilton,
Aid. Harold Selous and John Elliot.
Aid. Hamilton is road master of the
C.P.R., and is eminently a practioal
man. His excellent services in the
council during the year drawing to
a close will no doubt be recognised
by electors uf that ward on election
day.
Alderman Selous has large property
interests not onlv of bis own bnt of
those whom he represents. He has
always acted awith conservative judgment in city affairs and has proven a
valuable alderman in the counoil
during the past year.
Mr. Elliot was one ot the pioneers
of Nelson in whioh be has a thriving legal practice which neccesarlly
makes him a man of affairs. He will
make a member of the council whose
advice will be of great value..
The West Ward has good men as
candidates. Capt. John Paterson has
been in the council one year where bis
good judgment has won him many ad.
mirers. He has much experience in
business and has large prcoperty in
terests.
Aid. Gillett is a contractor, and man
of splendid business qualities
His record as an alderman during the
icst year ik ono which he is justified
in being proud of.
W. J. Wilson.'the popular manager
for P. Burns and Co., and commonly
known as Blake Wilson,'has been
a resident of Nelson and vicinity since
(there was, any Nelson. The ^excellence of hi 3 business ability is proven
by the responsible position he holds.
As an alderman in 1900 he has a record which should insure his election.
THE COPPER SUPPLY.
Tbe Native Copper Times takes the
view that there is not an unusual
supply of copper on hand. In support
of its contention it quotes a.statement
made by a manu'acturer of electrical
supplies who said: ''If there should
be a movement of the largest producers of copper looking to higher
prices, the 100,009,000 pounds stored
by tue United Metals Selling Company
would not last two weeks. I believe
there are over 100,000,000 pounds less
copper and brass in tho hands of manufacturers now than there was a year
or two ago, aud we are doing a better business now than we were then."

EDITORIAL NOTE?.
| When the Tribune desires to speak
contemptuously of one' of its protege it
oalls him a wabbler. Mr. Kirkpatrick
was a wabbler two years ago and
would soon be one again unless he
closely follows tne advice of tbe
Tribune.
The clerks' union ia again active
and will insist on their half hol-
day during the summer, notwithstanding tho opposition ol the Tribune.
If the management of the Tribune is
a far seeing as it would like to have
its followers believe it might east its
eyes into the misty future far enough
to see Its own finish in the present
campaign. It's a poor prophet who
cannot make a forecast which will
hold water for a week ahead.
It Is not the fault of Mr. Fletcher
that the municipal campaign has resolved itself largely into a contest between himself and Mr. Houston. The
latter has persistently injected himself into the fight nnd does not attempt to disguise the fact that he
thinks it Is onlr by his permission
that anyone oan aspire to olllee in Nelson. The public arc becoming distinctly tired of one man attempting
to dominate politics in this oity.
��� m
Tbe Tribune appears to have over*
looked one contingency which might
arise ln the very remote possibility
of the election of Mr. Kirkpatrick and
the aldermen who will support him.
Who in the world will look alter the
city when the Tribune'a editor goos to
Victoria to shoulder the affairs of
the province'.' Perhaps by that time
wireless telegraphy will be in such
au advanced state that he can communicate with Mr. Kirkpatrick at
least onco an hour and so keep him in
Uno.

GREAT   PROSPEKIITY.
Manufacturing and Farming Sections
of Canada Experiencing a Boom.
George W. SuckliDg, representing
Stein way and Sons, of New York, and
the Messrs. Nordheiiner, limited, piano manufacturers of Toronto, is in
the city on a business visit. Mr.
Suckling in a chat had with him yesterday reported that business in the
east was very brisk. Canada and the
United Statet, he says, were never
more prosperous than at present. Manitoba is remarkably prospeorus owing
to the immense crops garnered thore,
and Winnipeg, he declares, is on tho
eve of one of tho greatest booms in its
history. The booms which Wirnipeg
has heretofore enjoyed have been
largely in anticipation, but now that
realization has come, through the development of the country.the great future of the place is assured. Land
adjacent to the city is being purchased and lots, both for business and residential purposes, aro being eagerly
bought by speculators, who anticipate
that the big revival in real estate will
commence withm a few months. Besides this there has beon a largo influx into Winnipeg and the place is
growing rapidly. Mr. Suckling says
that the industrial activity in the far
east continues and that factories are
running to the limit cf their capacity
to supply the demand. As for pianos,
ho 6nys that tho warehouses of his
company are being emptied as fast as
they can be filled. Manitoba and British Columbia are large purchasers of
instruments.

A black board that Frank Tamblyn
put up in his store for the purpose of
giving tbo latest curling news during

there are a large number of "chalk

The artists in oach case, howovcr,

NIP IT IN THE BUD.
First Apprcrance of  Dandruff a Forerunner of Future Baldness.
That such wns the case bas been
conclusively proven by scientific
research. Prof. Uniia, the noted
European skin specialist, declares
that dandruff is tbe burrowed-up
cuticle of tho scalp, caused by parn-
sities destroying the vitality of the
hair bulb. Tbe hair becomes lifeless
and, in time, falls out. This can be
prevented.
Newbros' Horpicide kills this dandruff germ, and restores the hair to
Its natural softness and abundantly.
Nowbo Horpicide is now used by
thousands of people���nil satisfied that
it is the most wondoiful hair preparation on the market.
