"Nelson,   British  Columbia, Sunday,  October 27,  1901
Eleventh  Year
Outline  of  the
Position  and
Why It Is Considered Necessary To Get
Mayor Frank Fletcher was seen yesterday In iegnrd to the electric light
malter which at present is attracting
no much attenlinn and when asked his
tiewfc in relation to the same h snid:
"In order that the ratepayers may
inlly understand the present electric
light situation 1 may say it is simply
this: During a certain period of the
year we aio short of water and cannot
develop sntilciont power to run both
waler wheels up to their capacity.
The two largo dynamos, on the direct
current have a capacity of 1,S00 lights
The two small machines have a capacity of 1,WO lights, which together
practically require 250 h. p. to run.
They aie run, however, by a wheel
that only develops 170 li.p . as dynamo, which means 1,700 lights. TheBO
ton: muohi nes have connected with
them 11,033 lights, but this load never
conies on at one time,
"The alternating machine has been
run up lo 170 h. p., whioh means
1,700 lights, and has connected with
It 1,900 lights. To the above must he
taken Into consideration belt loss, loss
by friction, iron loss on big machine
altogether the wheel capacity of the
plant, at dynamos, Is equal to about
M horse power,  or 3,400 lights.
"Lights connected on the whole
ijstctn Munlicr 4,035, whioh shows
that the machines are  overloaded.
"It Is evident that the loss in trans-
iiiixRhin is high od the direct current
Or the lights would he better. The
winng on this system was never good
owing to improper installation.
"Late in September the superintendent reported a shortage ot water, machines having to shut down early,
and today there is nut snllicinet water
to run all uf them eillciontly. These
faclB were fully demonstrated last
"In view uf the certainty that we
were going to be short of light I
���slieil the West Kootenay Power &
Light Co., for a quotation for horse
power to be delivered at tho city power house, based on a flat rate per
horse power, and on receipt of same
placed their proposal before the ooun-
oil, explaining the situation. It was
after discussion that the plan on a
percentage linhis was brought forwaid
liy Alderman Selous and the council
requested me to obtain a proposition
Used on those linos, which was later
on submitted to the council, and
which is now under discussion and
has been printed in the Tribune,core-
folly omitting one of the principal

"Willi regard to the present plant,
��ince its purchase all its earnings
have really gone hack Into the plant,
tut the capital has been steadily in-
Heated in order to release the money
���o earned.
"In order io give n good service with
the present plai.t and to meet the requirements for extra lighting It
would be noceHsary to put In at least
another |20,0oo in extra dynamo and
auxiliary power.
"In view of tho fact that it was decided by the late mayor and council
"nit the elty waB growing boyond its
I'fcBent plant, by thole applying for a
Power site on Kootenay rlvor in order,
" ""roe future time, to instal an up-
hwlato plant would it be good policy
�� pnt more money into the old plant?
The prosent proposed arrangement
B only to carry mi over until the city
is In a position to borrow the ncoes-
����ry money,^i60,()00 or more, In order
��i carry out such a schomo. It is
8��ncraly conceded that the timo is
��ot now ripe for the piecing of such
��� loan.
"Personally I was of tho opinion
"ill the ����t rate per horse powor
would bo the host arrangement hot
"c rale quoted waa high, t,1c pet.
centago scheme however shows a big-
����' Profit to the city and was more
���MOrablf received by the oouneil.
'��mutt seem  absurd   to   any   nn-
biased latepayer [that the seven business inn in the council deliberately
want to give any privileges or franchises. Thcv simply wish to provide
light for the time being.
" When our accident happened I arranged foi power with the West Kootenay Light & Power Co. in order to
save people great inoonvenience. If
the citizens do not think the present
council are honestly trying to do
their beBt to furnish them with good
light it is a simple matter to turn
down at the polls any proposition laid
beforo them.
"To fully understand the unjust
criticism and distorted statement of
facts with reference to the lighting
question and the proposed action of
the city council I will refer back to
1800 when the Neelauds council, ow
ing to the failure of the lights in tho
winter of 1808-0, had to face the"ques-
tion of improving the electric plant.
Their action was bitterly opposed by
Mr. Houston in the Tribune. At the
some time tho city was face to face
with a water famine unless some action was taken to Increase the supply.
It was decided to put In a steel pipe
to tap Cottonwood creek. This was
also strongly opposed although it was
proven beyond question that there was
a little over one-half the quantity of
water in Anderson oreek that the oity
lequhed to protcot itself dining the
coming winter. Sometime before the
pipe line was finished there was not
water enough to put out an ordinary
flie had it occurred. At this time we
were told 'that wc were'going it
blind; that it was a waBte of public
money' and the counoil was slurred
and abusod from the same souroe but
the by-law carried. I simply mon-
lion this as a sample of what our
present critic has done in the past
"Mr. Houston says that the present
council 'have made no special effort
to secure title to tbe piece of land on
Kootenay river.' This is on pai with
most of his statements.
" When I first came (into oflice I
took this matter up with Mr. Houston
whtlo he win; in Viatrwia-and since he
returned I have had him wire the
government at the oity's ekponBe and
peionnlly I have wired the government nnd writteu letters monthly on
this subject and have only received
one official reply,dated April 1U of the
present year. Mr. Houston is well
nwnre of all these facts I wrote him
on May 1st last at Viotorla aBking
him to obtain us the title for tho oity
foreshore and the park which had
been promised last year, at the sajib
time taking up matters in connection
with the eleotric power site.
"I assume he haB made some effort
to obtnin those for the oity hot so far

"As regards the elcotrio light rates
the late mayor blows hot and cold.
In oue issue he states that we do not
collect the rates and in another he
says by living up to the schedule
rates that we are increasing them.

an exhaustive address by Chief Just-

as the same woman. She was then
confident that she would he acquitted

Viotorio, Oot. 20.���According to advices received by the steamer Olym-

from the Orient, three more Japanese
sealing schooners have been seized by
the Russian crniser Yakut for sealing
within the limit around the Copper
aud other Russian seal islands. This
makes six steamers and also tbe boat's
crew of another whioh have been
seized this year, or about 71 men,
most of them Japai e��e, but some Americans i"id Canadians. The schooners were taken to Petmpaulovslct
where they weie condemned, and
the men sent to Vlndivostock, where
some were sentenced to a year in j��il
and others were awaiting trial. Another Bohooner which was seized was
icleased as it was shown that thojeap-

Chamberlain's Candid Friends

A Mysterious Hlndo Prince.
Hicks-Beach May
Last evening a prisoner at the gaol
esoaped in rather a mysterious manner.
His name is John Reilly and he had
been sentenced to 18 months' imprisonment for the larceny of some money and
a bicycle at Grand ForkB, and jnst two
months of his term had boen served.
Reilly had been employed as oook
and tbo last seen of him was at (i o' olook
when the dishes were passed to him
from the corridor. At 8 o'olock, when
time came to lock him np he was not
to bo found. Search failed to show how
he got away ; every tiling in the kitchen
was in the best of ordor and all the
doors wete looked. Tbe only possible
means of exit mnst have been by his
opening the Yale padlock of the grating
and then the heavy lock of the door
opening into the yard, Both the pad-
look and the door he had lonked behind
him, and all doors and windows were
as they had been before.
A description of him and che offer ot
a reward of t50 for his capture were
sent to surrounding towns. He is described as 5 feet, 0 inches high, weight
134 pounds, veiy light oomplexion,
olean shaven , small moustache, heavy
bead of very light colored hair, high
cheek bones, sunken cheeks, small eyrs
with' heavy lashes ; be is refined in
appearance and address.
There is every liklihood he was
assisted by confederates on the outside
This theory is substantiated by tbe fait
that after the O. P. R. ticket agent had
left hie ofHoe two men milled and asked
the telegraph operator, who was tbe
only one present, for a tioket to Montana and they alio asked if they could
leave by n train that night. One of tbe
men answered the description given of
the man who esoaped.
London, Oct 20.���There is no end
to criticism current regarding the
government's conduot of the war in
South Africa, but it emanates chiefly
from those who Mr. Chamberlain in
his speech last night characterised as
his ''Candid friends." The outcry
does not appear to strengthen in the
slightest the chances of the Liberal
party. II. C. Lehman, who has just
resigned the editorship of the Daily
News in an artiole this week's Speaker admits that he sees no hope for
Liberalism until it has acquired and
put forward a strong definite policy
in regard to South Afrioa. To do this
he confesses would mean tbe loss to
the party of some of its most prom
i.ent supporters,but he maintains���tbnt
even this is tetter than tbe pietent

circles traditionally governmental is
found in the fact that tbe Cambridge

Berlin, Oct. 20.-Tbe Pan-American

the general tone of which ia belittling
and skentical of its success. It is interpreted as being a scheme of the
Uuited States to increase its influence
over Latin America. Any alliance
between the tinted States and the latter is regarded as chimerical owing
to the racial differences, the only
connection between them   being   pro
per schedule.

This aristocratic debating society is
composed mainly of those who are related or acquainted with the rnling
class and who have hitherto always
warmly suppoited the government's
South African policy. A reversal of
feeling1 in such a university as Cambridge,; means, perhaps, more than
any demonstration or political meetings.
Rumois were rife regarding cabinet chances, during the early part of
the week. It was persistently said
that Sir Mlohael Hicks-Beach, the
Chancellor of "the Exchequer, whose
relations with Mr. Chamberlain have
never been cordial, was determined
to step out, and Mr. Hanbury, the
president of the Board of Agriculture,
was to sucoeed him. Inquiries
made by a representative of the Associated Press, however pointed to the
fact that Sir Michael will remain in
oflice though not very willingly and
that no serious oabinet shake up is
likely to occur in the near future.

continues, "The  Pan American   idea
is solely capable of development  upon
the basis of subjection of all America
to the  hegemony   of  U. 8.   The  re
public  of    Anglo-Saxon    and  Latin

territorial conditions and the   compo-    '
sition of  populations, tbat   a  closer

The future of Nelson depends largely
on tho manner in which the residents
reach out and utilize the natural advantages which are tributary. It requires energy and enterpriso to make
these natural advantages yield the
wealth which they contain. There
should bo larger local ownership and
Nelson would be more piosperous
than she is if the citizens were more
largely interested in paying mining
properties than they are. The question may be asked, therefore, if Nelson
is reaping from the raining Industry
all the profit that it should?
Almost no profit yielding mine is
owned wholly by local people. A
number of mines are owned by parties
having local agents. These agents
roside here, buy what they need for
their sustenance and supplies for the
properties they purchase, and in that
thejlienelil to tho city ends. Men in
Spokane, in Toronto, or in Loudon,
Eng., own the producing mines, pocket the profits ami iuvest them in
brick blocks, in snmmor residences in
running horses, or as thoir taste and
fancy may dictate. Nelson might hi
well have more palatial residences,
more summer homes and more of the
comforts of life than it has. This city
has seon the wild oats slaughtered or
driven ont of the woods; it has seen
how mines are made and how fortunes
are wrecked, and profiling by this
ejpjrioiica and with money at command, should be in an exceptionally
good position to go into mining with
confidence, with good judgment nnd
hence in a manner to insure success
Mining in Kootenay has passed tho experimental stage.it is not a gamble as
it vas considered to be in its earlier
stages in British Columbia, but an investment worthy enough to engage the
attention ol tbe most conservative,and
there seems no good reason with its
centisl position, its money, and the
energyof its people, why Nelson should
not quickly establish itself so that
more of the dividends from mines will
come to her residents. The people
hero have already accomplished won-
deis in the way of developing the surrounding mines, but the tendency has
be i n in the direction of selling
the beat and most promising proper,
ties t? outside syndicates and capitalists and to retain no portion nr
interest in tbe properties. As a result
of this if profits are made they
go to outsiders and so the country is
drained of its wealth and the only advantages which it receives are in the
shape of wages paid, supplies pur
chased and Ih�� taxes collected by the
government. In the future an effort
should be made by tho people to develop and bring to a profit bearing
stage sume of the better elans nf properties with home capital lo the end
that the profits may remain here for
the benefit of the community. If this
is not done all the profits will find
their way out of the oountry and
will aid in the upbuilding of other
sections instead J of assisting in
making larger and greater the home
communities. The matter we believe
Is worthy nf mirious  consideration,
In putting foiward this suggestion
there Is ik. Intention of decrying the

which have made so many investments

which others to advantage to them
Helves may follow. They invested in
the mines here at a time when success win problematical and when it
was doubtful whether there would be
any gains to bo made for their daring,
energy aud enterpilso. Not a few of
them operated at a large loss, as nt
the start in now districts the outcome is more or less doubtful. All ol
the existing prosperity is due to their
enterprise,faith and investments In
the country. The mining region is so
extensive thnt there Is plenty of room
left for foreign capital to exploit In.
This class of capital in an absolute
necesltv and will lie as long as mining
is oarrled on. Tbe Idea wbion we
are endeavoring to express is what
the local people should endeavor to

"It is nn undeniablo fact," Hays the
New York Herald, "that the most Influential business   men  of  the world
bare turned their attention tn raining,
the source of nearly all wealth ;for persons who have been   enslaved   to   the
idea that   the   only   safe   proposition
was a five per cent or six per   cent security, new realize that many millions

the richest men in the world are mining kings, many of whom have grown
powerful enough through   tne   proper
application of originally   a   moderate
oapital, and it is   proven-  that   while
millions of dollars have boon   lost   in
railroads, farm mortgage, eastern   industrial   and   building   associations,
tbe Ameilcan mining industry  steadily advances,making enormous profits
for   Its   supporters,    building    great

properly advised, has opportunities of

made possllbe through combining limited sums of thousands, thus equaling
the capital of the individual   million-

of moderate means is equally as  powerful as the dollar of the money king.
Both serve their purpose; both arc entitled to their proportionate profits,

evening for Camborne to personally
attend to the development ot the
Camborne and Oyster groups.
Dr. Hall, finding that lie could
not make connections lliroigh to
Calgary on Friday remained over in
Nelson. He leaves tomorrow morning and will be back in ten days.
The ladies of the W. C. T. U.
will hold their first regular meeting
in the pallors of the Baptist church
on Monday next from 3 to 4
o'clock. A very cordial invitation
is issued to all ladies interested in
the temperance cause.
Good progress is being made with
the postoffice building and another
week or ten days will see the first
story finished. The quarry has
been a hard one to open and this
has had the effect of impeding the
work. Building will progress as
late in the fall and as early in the
spring as the weather  will  permit.
There will be special music at the
Presbyterian church at both services
today. In the morning Mr. Brown
will sing He Giveth His Beloved
Sleep, by Abt, and in the evening
Mrs. Parry will sing The Children's
Home, by Cowen, and the quartette,
consisting of Mrs. Parry, Miss
Johnston, Mr Grizzelle, and Mr.
Kydd will sing Shelley's Behold the
Western Evening Light. In the
evening Dr. Wright will preach a
special sermon to young women.
The executive of the Nelson Curling Club met last night in the office
of N. T. McLeod, Mr. McLeod pre
siding, to talk over matters lor the
coming winter.    Tuesday, November 5th was fixed as the date of the
annual  meeting.       Owing to  the
absence of  A.   V,   Mason,   of the
Tramway company,  the  committee
adjourned till Tuesday evening next.
The curlers are looking  forward to
an active season's sport during the
coming winter and there is a disposition to arrange to have the bonspiel
for the district held here this year.
Quite a large crowd assembled in
the baseball  grounds  yesterday  to
witness    a     game     between   the
government staff and  the legal fraternity of the  city.    The  civil employees cume off victorious by 12 to
10. but they h.id  a  narrow  escape
for the legal men were just gelling
into   the form of their schooldays
when the game  was  called  at  the
end  of   the   fifth   innings.    Harry
Wright pitched lor the government
and struck out quite a number, and
never allowed anything  worse than
a three base hit.    Johir- Elliott was
in the box for the lawyers and held
honors about  even.    Dr.   Doherly
was a satisfactory umpire.

1 The public school staff of the city,
part of the post office staff and a
number of other mountaineers
ascended the mountain on the other
side of the Jake yesterday.
The Socialistic Educational Club
is arranging to hold a Poverty
Social on All Hallowe'en, at the
residence of Miss M. B. Merrill, on
Victoria street, four doors above
the city gaol.
The morning sermon at the Baptist church today will be upon the
subject of "Sanctification," and the
evening/discourse upon "The Silence
of God." A hearty invitation extended to everybody.
The derrick on the city wharf has
again been put in position by the
postoffice contractors and now
appears to be none the worse for its
The Chinamen at Thirteen-Mile
Point yesterday shipped in two more
tons of potatoes from their ranch
This brings their shipments of this
article of diet up to thirty tons during the present month.
Owing to the low stage ol water
in the lake the steamers now stop
at the extreme end of the city
wharf, the water at the float not being sufficiently deep. The lake has
again started to sink to a lower
level and is now but four inches
above last winter's lowest mark.
' The Socialistic Educational Club
will discuss the proposed agreement
between the City Council and the
West Kootenay Power Company at
its meeting in the Miner's Union
Hall this afternoon, and will be
pleased to have present all interested in the principle of civic ownership.
Oould Hot Get Strength From It-
A Kplscopalian ministei of lillen-
ville.N. Y.,wbo Is interested not only
in the spiritual welfare nf his congregation, but in their physical well-being also, says, "I can now do an immense amount of Work and feci no fatigue, for the reason that I am using
lirnpe-Niits breakfast food and have
quit colliu entirely and am using Postum Food Coffee.
Myself and family are greatly Improved in health. Wo have largely
abandoned the use of white bread.
Upwards of twenty-five poisons have
ehanged their diet, on my rccomraen
datiou. It is gladly given, because 1
know, from personal experience,
whereof I speak."
It is a well-known faot that white
bread Is almost entirely composed of
starch and this is diuVult of digestion by many people, particularly
thus,' who have weak intestinal digestion. Tho result of the use of much
white bread is a lack of brain and
norvons power to do mental woik and
it also ciestes intestinal troubles, be
cause the excess of starch ferments in
the intestines and makes the coudi
tions right for the growth of microbes; whereas Grape-Nuts breakfast
food contains the needed starch, but
in a predigested form. That is, it is
transformed into grape sugar in the
process of manufacture and delivered
in tbe packages, ready cooked and in
such shape that it is immediately assimilated without hard work of tbe
digestive organs.
The food also contains the deli.-nte
particles ot phosphate of potash
which, combined with albumen, is
used by nature to make the gray mutter that must be In the cells if tbe
brain and the nerve centers thiongh-

shipped out to the May and Jennie
mine yesterday over the new road.
Supplies are new shipped to the
mines in the neighborhood of Forty-
Nine and Bird creeks at one half
the cost entailed before the road
was built.
Tonight, at Emmanuel church,
Rev. Wm. Munroe will preach on
the subject announced, Christ in the
Storm. The anthems for the evening are as follows : The Lord is
King, by Leslie, and Sweet the
Moments, by Bierly. A cordial welcome is extended to everyone.
Messrs. Hunter and Wallace, who
went up to Killarney, on Arrow
'ake, last week on a hunting trip
returned Friday evening to Nelson.
They went with the intention of
getting deer but not finding any
contented themselves with grouse,
of which they brought back fifteen
plump specimens.
Speaking of the present magnificent weather, an old-timer yesterday stated that in 1892 there was a
similar long period of fine weather
which lasted through October and
November and half of December,
only three wet days occurring in
that time, the rest being bright and
clear. The rainfall for the past
thirty days has been only one-eighth
of what it was during the corresponding period last year.
The workmen who are putting in
the six-inch water main on Vernon
street between Stanley and Ward
streets have found it necessary to
build a box flume to carry the pipe
across the remains of the ravine
thiough which Ward creek ran before it was turned into the sewer.
This pipe will complete another circuit and add immensely to the volume of water available in case of
fire in the neighborhood of Vernon
and Ward streets.
A number of the freight tugs plying on Kootenay lake were in port
yesterday. The Hercules brought
in two barges loaded with limestone
from the quarry at Kaslo for the
Hall smelter ; the Surprise came in
from Pilot Bay with a barge loaded
with lumber for the city wharf and
another barge with firewood for
local dealers ; and the Ymir came
in from Procter for supplies. At
Procter the Ymir left a barge with
twelve empty cars and two loaded
with steel, the latter being consigned to Lardo.
A. McCulloch, track engineer of
the K & A. Railway, writes to make
the following correction in the report in the Miner of Tuesday last of
the death of Claude Durkee cfi that
railway last Sunday. Mr, Durkee
was in the act of making a coupling
instead of turning a switch when the
accident occurred and he was not
dragged under the wheels. From
the time the w heel struck his foot
until the train stopped the train did
not move more than eighteen inches,
or the distance from the foot to the
knee. Mr. and Mrs. Durkee never
resided in Nelson. While Mr. Durkee has been in the west, in the
country adjacent to Nelson for two
or three years, his family moved
here from St. Paul only a few
months ago.
R. Marpole, superintendent of the
Pacific division, 11. J. Cambie, chief
engineer; Grant Hall, master
mechanic ; William Downie, superintendent of the Kootenay division ;
and Campbell Sweeney, of the Bank
of Montreal, Vancouver, arrived in
this city yesterday from their trip to
Lardo and Sandon, and report that
they had a pleasant trip. The fact
that they travelled over the K. & S.
road gave rise to the rumor that the
C. P. R. was about to take over
that road. Thomas Tait, master of
transportation, whom Mr. Marpole
came here to meet, is expected to
arrive todiy. He came west on his
private car and will arrive with it on
the car barge from Kootenay Landing. Mr. Marpole and Mr. Tait
will inspect the C, P.R. in Kootenay
and then it is thought they will proceed   to the Coast.
