New York, Dec.19.���Thc provisional
executive committee of tlie United
Trish League of America, formed by
the Irish anvoys, Redmond, McHugh
and O'Donnell before leaving for Ireland held its first meeting this afternoon at tbe Hoffman house. John
Finertv, of Chicago, president of the
newly organized league presided and
most of the 31 original members of the
executive committee were in attendance.
D'Arcy Scott, of Ottawa, Ont., was
added to thc executive committee. A
constitution and bylaws based on tbe
lines of the old Land League organization were adopted and arrangements
made to organize the country in support of the Irish leaders and the
United Irish league in Ireland. The
executive committee was engaged
until a late hour in drafting an address to the people of this country on
which they base their claim to active
support of the Irish cause at. the present time.
The address endorEcs what Mr,
Redmond and his associates said as to
the important part England is playing
in keeping Ireland down and says,
''the great task, then of this generation, is to strive and root the Irish in
their soil, the work so gloriously
begun by Parnell and now so ably
prosecuted by Redmond, Davitt,
O'Brien, Dillon and their associates.
The young people of Ireland must be
given a living in the land that gave
them birth, in order that they may
cleave unto the soil, they must be
made like the Frenohman, the Hoi
lander, and the Boer, farmer proprietors. This, allied ti the underlying autre of Irish national indc
pendencc, is the notable mission of
the United Irish league of Ireland. It
is our duty as Irishmen to sustain
Ireland in her chosen policy which
io no way conflicts with out national
sentiment either as fiiends of Ireland
or as American citizens.
The address then calls upon Irish
Americans to torno, as soon as may be
impossble, branches of the United
Irish league of America to cooperate
with their Irish brethren in cause of
national liberty and agrarian   reform.
Toronto, Dec.19.���An Evening Telegram cuble says: Particle A. McHugh

soldiers were fighting. He attempted
to oonvey tho impression that Canadians sympathized with thc Boers.

said that Mr. Kekewich died naturally after suffering long from insomnia and that he had not been

Washington, Dec. 19.���"History
affords no parallel of a whole p��<:ple
thus practically turning war traitors
and in the genius of no other people
was ever found snch masterful powers
ot secrecy and dissimulation, but it Is
needless to say that no powerful state
was ever erected or ever oan be
erected ou such immoral and unenlightened foundations. '
This statement is   made by   General
Chaffee,   military    governor    of   the
Philippines   in   view   of a number of
oouit    martial   in   the   islands,   the
records of wnicb  have  been   received
at   the   war   department,     Tbe  case
which   brqnght   forth   this   comment
was  one   wherein seven natives wero
tried jointly  ou a   charge of murder.
The accused had  been solidcrs  in tbe
insurgent   army   and after defeat   by
the American army in the field, abandoned   even   the show   of   open opposition and took up their residences   at
Taytay, a place proteoted by an American   garrison.     Then, following the
proclaimed   policy   of   the   insurgent
chief,     they    proceeded   to  organize
secretly a bolo band.    When authorization hud been given to establish civil
government   the band   came   forward
under   tbe   leadership  of   a   resident
padre   and   were   elected    municipal
officers   of  Taytay.     Then ensued   a
remarkable attempt   to serve two masters.     In   ail   lawful   matters    tbey
served with due appearance of loyalty
to the American government while   at
tbe same   time  they   labored   secretly
and diligently in   the interests of the
insurgents. This dual form of government,   says General   Chaffee,   existed
everywhere     in   strongly   garrisoned
cities   like   Manila   as   well   as   tbe
smallest eity.     Tbe municipal officers
of Taytay next entered   upon   a series
of murders and continued tbeir deadly
work   until   the   growing   number of
mysterious disappearances led   to  the
discovery   of   the   perpetators by   the
Americau   authorities.     One undeniable     truth,   says    General   Chaffee,
stands out in this cas; as in hundreds
of like cases of murder, that the avei-
age native   of these   islands   has   not
more   than   the   merest   rudimentary
conception   of   his   individual   rights
aod   duties  as   a   man,   and   no one
knows this so well as the chiefs   who
use bim for their nefarious   purposes.
Six   of   the seven  natives were sentenced to be  hanged but Gen. Chaffee
commuted   the   sentenced   of three of
them   to   imprisonment at hard labor
for   life.      Tbe   seventh native, Leor-
nardo De Posoy,   a regularly ordained
piie t, asked for and   was   granted   a
separate trial.      At his trial De Posoy
who was held to be  thc chief agent in
the Taytay murders,   tuok  advantage
of the loophole, which appeared   to be
afforded   by  his position as priest, by
contending   that   while the participators     in   thu   wholesale   murders   In
Taytay   would   confess   thn   same  at
confessional be   was compelled by his
sacred oflice to keep silence.
Uenc-al Chaffee pronounced this
defence of no value Baying that "tho
confessional does net lay upon any
man, priest or layman, the obligation
of suppressing knowledge of crimes
being committed by third parties."
Den. Chaffee confirmed the sentence of
death imposed by the court martial
which tried de Posoy but commuted
the sentence to 30 years' imprisonment at hard labor, out of his respect
for his calling and on account of the
great relligous organization of which
be is a most unwoithy member.
flames blazing upward through the
bell, 'ihe men were on the furnace
platform 85 feet above the ground, j
There were 19 men over the furnace I
when the explosions occurred, and 15
of them were caught in the flames.
Two of them escaped vvith slight injuries. The other four were the regular men employed as top fillers and
escaped without injury.
The explosion was caused by the
gas becoming incased in a crust of
cinders forming at the bottom of the
furnace. A wheelbarrow containing
ore had been sent up to the men and
when they went to dump it into the
bell of the furnace tbey pushed it over
too far and it rolled into the hopper.
The barrow weighed 900 pounds and
was too heavy for the four men to
raise. The 15 laborers were then sent
up to assist them. Had it not been
tor the barrow accident, no one
would have been hurt as the regular
men know how to protect themselves
at such times, as similar explosions
are of frequent occurrence. When the
explosion occurred burning heaps of
cinders settled around the men almost
knee deep. Their shrieks wero terrible in the frantic efforts to save
themselves.

RAILWAY MEN'S ASSOCIATION.
St. Louis, Dec. 19.���One hundred

the 35 branches of the Railway Men
Christian association in tbe southwest
arc in attendance at the special conference for the discussion of departmental work now Deing held here,
Miss Helen Miller (ionld, at whoso
suggestion the conference was called.
Is unable to be preRcnt. Letters irom
her and from George'J. Oould, president of the Missouri-Pacific expressing
sympathy with the movement have
been received.
A Miner reporter called upon Mr.
0. S. Drutnmond, who is a director
of The British Electric Traction Co. of
London, England, and also of the
Nelson   Electric Tramway Co.
In reply to questions, Mr. Drum-
mond stated that be observed in Nelson many improvements of a substantial character, and the town had a
more prosperous appearance than he
had been led to expect from the letters
and reports he had received before
arriving here. He was glad to hear
that there was a good prospect of
peace and goodwill between the
miners and mine owners and he hoped
this would bu of a permanent and
extended nature.
Mr. Drutnmond was asked thc question of the hour. "What has been
decided upon relative to the tramway?" and gave the reporter to
understand that he was anxious to
lend what aid he could to their other
directors in their desire to keep the
line open.
The position was that the Tramway
company had a large excess of power
for which thoy would be glad to receive from the city an offer. All tbe
current that the city woulc1 require ln
excess of their present power for the
next five years could be had from tbe
Tramway company and the cost of
this to tlie city wonld be a trifle com
pared to tbe contemplated oapital
expendituie of 8150 000 and the yearly
charge on the taxes of $30,000 to $40,-
OOt) us contepmlated by tbe bylaw.
The Tramway oompany estimate that
about five thousand spent in plant
(which is a saleable asset) and a sum
of less than five thousand perannum for
current would place tne city In a
position to at once supply some
thousands of lights, which even if the
bylaw be passed and acted upon these
lights could not be in operation for
perhaps a two years from now. The
city would therefore save about one
hundred and forty-five tbousad dollars
of capital expenditure and very little
lesN than thirty thousand dollars a
year and on the other hand the Tramway company would be benefited to
the extent of the current purchased
from them.
Mr. Drummond presumes that every
pertun in Nelson is aware that the
Tramway company are compelled to
take and pay for from the West
Koceuay Power and Light Co. current
which is laigely in excess of their
requirements. He also pointed cut
that the Tramwuy compay, have honestly fullli lU'il all that they piomiaed
to do and now have a line in this city
which is equal, if not superior, to
anything elsewhere and in view of the
fact they luve spent over one hundred
and seventy thousand dollars in Nelson, they think they are untitled to
consideration, especially in view of
tlie fact that It costs the city no more
for current and tbat they will save a
huge capital expenditure.

FOUR BYLAWS.
Today the ratepayers of Nelson will
decide the fate of the fonr bylaws,
which have beeu before them since
December Oth, and which call for the
raising of $170,000 by way of debentures to he used for the pin poses of
providing an electric light plant, an
isolation hospital, a high school and
a fire alarm system. The full text of
these measures have appeared in The
Miner for the past ten' days so that
the public is well informed as to
what they are and the purposes for
which the money is to be expended.
The principal bylaw, which, if it
is adopted, will call for the expenditure of $150,000 for the erection of an
electrical plant at Ilonnington Falls.
That the city should vtltiamtely own
its own plant at Ilonnington Falls
for the furnishing of light and power
to the people of Nelson is heartily
agreed to by The Miner. Nelson
already owns an electric light plant
which is conceded to be inaequate for
current requirements, but which can
be reinforced ,until the time come��
when the oity can' erect thc larger
plaDt at Bonnington Falls." It is contended in some quarters that this cannot he done,but,not��ithstanding thia,
it is entirely feasilbe and tbe extension of the present plant to a sufficient
capacity to supply thc additional
lights could made without a very
large outlay.
So far, however, as putting in a
plant, at a cost of $l.ri0,000 or perhaps
$200,000, or muyliaps 8250,000, at present ib cuncsrned it would be a most
impolitic and unwise move as the
mining and business situation do not
justify lhe city in going so deeply
into debt.
There is no surer way to depreciate
the value of realty in a young city
than to pile up a large civic indebtedness. The theory of those who are
ever ready to pluge municipalities
into debt is that pestcri'y will pay
the bills, and their sentiment, ia what
do we oa re for posterity? A municipal Indebtedness is an interest-
bearing mortgaga on every piece of
real estate within tho corporate limits
of a town contracting obligations.
The truth is that posterity does no
have to pay nearly as much as the
ratepayers who contract the debt���
as they pay in the direct form of an
immediate contraction of tho value of
their realty holdings and in the Immediate increase of taxes. Brandon
Sault Ste. Marie and several other
yonng Canadian cities are examples of what municipal recklessness, extravagance and the carrying
out the idea that posterity will pay-
will do for a town. No ratepayer
who has his own interest or the interest of the city, its present or future
prosperity, at heart should vote for
the bylaw providing for the raising of
SlfiO.uOO for an electric light plant.
The taxes on realty are already sufficiently onerous und an increase
would be in tbe nature of a hardship
tt the present juncture. Just as soon
as the debt for Ihe electric light plant
is contracted the work of paying tho
interest and the principal commences.
This fact alone deinonstiutes that
somebody else besides posterity Is
compelled to melt such obligations.
The idea is that it is not good policy
under the present clouded condition of
affairs to contract so large an obligation and no ratepayer who can look
ahead the least bit will cast a ballot
in favor of the electric light bylaw.
It has been stated Ihal the intention was to bonus the proposed lead
refinery, provided It is located in Nelson, by means of cheap electrical
power, either in the form of power
for ooBt or for nothing, for a certain
period. This is uot true as the inten-
ion of the city authorities was to
givo a direct bonus of $50,000 in cash

ing capacity in case those  who'have j
the refinery project in hand applied to i
the city for the bonus promised where
could   the money be raised?   In   such,
an event the refinery  would   probably
be ereotcd in some other   city   in   the ,
Kootenays and   in one   that is not  ao i
hampered   by debt that it could with-!
out   any   trouble   give   the   subsidy.
Other   towns     are     in   tbe   tunning
for   the    refinery,     which      is    certain    sooner    or later   to   be   erected
and   Nelson must not   allow the prize
to get anav from her by maing a mis-
play   such   as not   being in a position
to put up the bonus when the time for
It. comes.    It is.therefore.palpable that
to   adopt   the bylaw   would seriously
injure Nelson's chances of getting the
lead refinery.
The question of taking power from
the West Kootenay l'ower and Light
company is not an issue of the polling
whieh takes place today, as that question was deoided hy a vote of the
ratepayers several weeks since, even
though in certain quarters an effort is
being made to befog the public and to
make the ratepayers believe that it is
the main matter on which the balloting will be taken. There are ways
and means by which this can be
avoided and one is to supplement the
city plant with steam power, a second
is to take pait of the Tramway company's power and another] is to take
gas from tbe gas oompany until such
time as conditions improve, when the
city can expend the large sum needed
to instal a plant at Bonnington
Falls. The 'dominant question at
issue is whether the city can judie.
ously afford to borrow $150,000 for the
purpose of putting in the lighting
plant and 'the attempt to mislead the
public by holding out false issues may
be compared to those of wreckers who
put out lights to lure vessels against
a storm beaten shore in order that
they ma; be wrecked and subsequently plundered.
Another pertinent question*is,"will
it help those who bave>acant houses,
or mortgaged residences or stores, to
place a mortgage of $150,000 and
perhaps $200,000 on their property?
Of course it will not, aa it will
make their condition considerably
worse than they are as the taxes on
their holdings will be neaily doubled
and their chances ot realizing profit
or rentals, or of paying of their obligations, or of disposing of their holding at a fair price, will be greatly
decreased.
The high school bylaw ihould be
adopted as the higher the educational
advantages of Nelson the more desire-
ahle it will be as a residence place,
and the more valuable will be its
realty, and, therefore, the high school
bylaw should be adopted without a
disenting voice.
The fire alarm system is au actual
necessity. It will cut down the fire
risk and assist in reducing the cost of
insurance. The fire-alarm bylaw
should meet with unanimous support.
As far as the isolation hospital is
concerned it has been learned that the
city intends to have it so large that it
can be used not only for smallpox
patients, but also for those afflicted
with diptheria, scarlet fever and other
contagious diseases. When a member
of a family of a poor man is afllioted
with one of these contagious diseases
it Is often found necessary to quarantine the entire family. In such an
event it causes a large Dill of expense
which it is difficult for the head of the
household is pay out of his small
wages. If there was an isolation
hospital an afflicted person oould be
taken to the isolation hospital and the
house on which the disease was contracted fumigated. In the meanwhile
the afflicted ono conld be scientifically treated where there would be no
danger of the spreading of the dis
ease. In this view of the oase the
isolation hospital would be of great
convenience as it would greatly assist
the authorities iu stamping out the
epidemics. Although $10,000 is ap
parently a large sum for a building for
tbis purpose still if the ratepayers
feel that it is necessary thoy should
vote for it.
From tho foregoing it will be seen
that it is essential that the electric
light bylaw be defeated as the city
cannot possibly afford to contract so
large, an obligation at the present
time. Thc question to be voted on
does not imply that a contract Is to be
mado with the West Kootenay Power
and Light company at 'his time and
this question Is not an issue. In conclusion, we believe that the electric
light bylaw should be defeated and
think that the ratepayers in their
wisdom will do this by a large
majority.

The Rev. O. P. WELLS, of Villa Ridge,

tell you how thankful I feel for the good
derived from it. I was a slave, ohained
with putrid sore throat and asthma for ten
years. I despaired of ever being cured. 1
saw your advertisement for the cure of
this dreadful and tormenting disease, Asthma, and thought you had overapoken
yourselves, bnt resolved to give it a trial.
To my astonishment the trial acted like a
charm.    Snnd iuc a full size bottle.

EDITORIAL NOTE?.
At Salt Lake City a Miners' home is
to built by Mrs Mary Judge, n philanthropic lady of that city. It will
coat between $40,000 and $.10,000 and
is to be a home for aged, infirm and
disabled miners. This is a worthy use
to put money to and one which should
be imitated. The miners have done a
great deal in the way of adding to the
wealth ot the world and those who
have made vast fortunes through tbeir
efforts anuld not do better than to set j
aside a portion of their wealth for the
establishment of homes where the
knights of tbe plok and shovel could
live eomfortably when they ar* no
longer able to work.
BANKRUPTSTOCK
We are NOT BUSTED and moreover in our 20 years of business career we have always managed to pay 100 cents on   the  dollar.
Some people may not be busted but they came very near it a short
time ago.
Our Sale has been a decided success, so much so that it has evidently
hit some of our competitors hard who are advertising discount sales
ranging from 10 to 50 per cent., which means that on good staple
goods you only get a 10 per cent, rebate.
Now we bought the stock we are at present selling, at a low rate on
the dollar, and we are letting everything go at and under wholesale
cost, which means a discount of 50 per cent, and over on all goods.
The clothing we bought in this stock is high-class, manufactured by
some of the largest firms in  the  Dominion.    Our  stock consists  of
Clothing, Gent's Furnishings, Hats, Boots, Shoes,

TRACKS NOW CLKARED.
Train   Crew   Generally     Much   Com
mended For Nerve and Bravery.
Work was carried on al] Wednesday
night and all yesterday by the wrecking crews at Kiie Mile roint and all
the tracks and switrhes have not been
cleared. Sueiintendent Forrest.of the
Spokane Falls line, was at Rossland
when he received word of t.ne wreck
and immediately left for the scene in
a special. A wrecking train has not
yet arrived from Spokane but will
probably reach here today. Practically all the damage done is in the
loss of the rolling stock involved, as
nearly all of the freight was saved,
although a quantity of apples in one
of the refcrigerHor cars were converted into cider. The engine had finished its trip against an immense
boulder, which oamo off best io the
encounter, indenting the front of tbe
engine and smashing the pilot.
Another boulder had removed the
cylinder. The boiler and part of the
cab are intact, and although the tank
went through considerable gymnastics
it can be repaired. The engineer aud
fireman, who were injured, are stopping at the Waverley hotel and are
getting along well although very stiff
and sore aid expect to be aiound in
a few days again. While searching
the wreck an overshoe with the
heel of a boot in it was found in the
cab having been ten from the foot of
the engineer, when he was thrown
off.
The bravery of Brakesman Griffin
who got out on the runaway tram,
continued setting brakes with the
train going nt lightning pace and did
uot leave his post until the cars had
jumped the track, was Ihe subject of
much admirinu comment on tbe street
yesterday Engineer Zweiser and
Fireman Coekwell who stayed at
their potts until their efforts to stop
the train were no longer of avail
showed that they were made of true
stuff.

Henry Roy, manager of the London
and Richelieu mines on Silver Hill,
is in Nelsou malting arrangements for
getting oro down U Crawford Bay as
soon as the tramway is finished. Work
on that is piogressing well and it is
exoected to be in operation by New
Years, or within two weeks at latest.
No snow has vet fallen at the lake
but bare roads are not apt to continue much longer. The force of men
at the mine is tiiiall but these will be
increased as soon as the tramway is
ready to take away the ore. Mr. Roy
has arranged with J. F. Linburg of
Rossland, to use his horses, now under
leaEe to G. A. Carlson, contractor for
tbe Lardo railway. II. L. Nicholson,
representing Mr. Linburg, wont up
yeat��rday to the Lardo to take the
horses down to Crawford bay,
C. R. Brown, superintendent of thc
North Star mine, arrived in the city
last evering and is staying at the
Phair leaving today for Spokane on
business connected with the mine.
Mr. Brown states lhat all work at the
mine is closed down and likely to
remain so for some time as the low
price of lead does not leave ranch
profit in mining it. lie is hopeful
tbat tbe present condition of things
will quiciky alter with a rise in the
price of lead, copper and silver, wbich
must eventually come. He said that
at Kimbcrley everything was very
quiet as' practically no work of anv
kind is in progress, but at Marysville
the exterBive building operations in
progress gives employment to a large
number and keeps business good.
The building for tl.e cyanide plant
of the Ymir mice has been finished
and work on the vuts used in tlie process are being constructed as rapidly
as possible. Three pneumatic riveting machines are utilised and they are
making good progress. O. M. Holt,
wbo put up the plant of the. Athabasca
mine, has charge of this department.
A steam heat plant is being installed
and it is expected that the whole
plant will be ready for operation
within six weeks. The plant is being
put in under the supervision of E. C.
Holden.
The Byron N. White Company,
owners of the Sioean Star nunc, have
entered an appeul against the order of

SPEAKING OP NOSES.
WHAT VARIOUS  SIZES AND  SHAPES
ARE SAID TO INDICATE.
Character as Depicted by tha Usefnl
(iruiui In the Center ot tbe Face.
The Wide l��e ol tbe Nose In Flar-
nres of Speach.
While it is true that some people hava
noses that look as if they did not belong
to their wearers and seem always trying
to get rid of them���witness Cyrano ds
Bergcrae���It is also true that there aro
innumerable instances where the feature
assimilates with character and harmonizes with the whole form and physiognomy. History teems with illustrations of
this fact.
When Socrates wns called a sot on account of his nose, he acknowledged its
language was a true index to bis natural
character. Space between the eyes, which
is filled by the upper uasul extremity, indicates the organ of form or power of
correctly judging local distance and conditions. It was remarkably wide in
Washington's head. Gouverneur Morris,
ane of the most impressive elocutionists
of our Revolutionary era, had a prominent and expansive nose, which gave a
sonorous emphasis to his voice.
Franklin's nose was said by phrenologists to illustrate the economical instinct
embodied so famously in "Poor Rich-
aid." The chivnhio temper of Henry
Clay was evident in his nose. So was
that of Alexander Hamilton. Tom
Paine's grossness as well as mental vigor
was symbolized In this feature, and se
were the strong hut unrefined proclivities of Gilbert Stuart. Voltaire's nos*
would seem to be turned up at all creation and snuffing a paradox.
Lavuter calls the nose the "sent of derision." He says a beautiful one is
never found in a countenance otherwise
ugly, and ho considers it "an abutment of
the brain" and, like the arch in Gothic
buildings, the essential feature. He declares:
"I haTe never seen a nose with a broad
back thnt did not belong to nn extraordinary man, such ns Swift, Cresor Borgia, Titian, etc. Small nostrils are nn Indubitable sign of unenterprising timidity;
the open, breathing nostrils, of sensibility."
A inter and more analytic writer finds
infinite shades of meaning in the shapes
aud size of thc nose. The first ridge, just
above the'top, for instance, according to
his observation, is the sign of self defense nnd is large In controversial men.
By the length of the nose, from the root
downward at a right angle, he estimates
thc tendency t* suspicion.
Whether one acquiesces In such details
of nasal langunge, there is no doubt thnt
general force of character is associated
with a certain strength in this feature of
tho face. The Roman aquiline nose is
identified commonly with high birtli or Intellectual rigor, the snub with plebeians,
the Haldolt>h with grossness, the rc-
trousso with fun, the flexible nostril with
feeling, the broad with courage and ths
Indented with sensitiveness.
A cinder in the eye or a cut lip excites
commiseration, but an accident to the
nose provokes a laugh. Even common
parlance seems to bare singled out ths
nose, of all features, to treat with contempt or at least ridicule. "Follow your
nose!" Is the watchword to impertinent
ciceroni, and to be "led by the nose" is a
synonym for imbecility. "Nose out of
joint" is the approved phrase for discomfiture. When a man is too plcbeinr for a
challenge and too insignificant to be flogged, the common method of punishment
Is to tweak his nose.
"I'll slit thc villain's nose!" is the lowest of threats. To turn up the nose at
an object suggests contempt too small
for indignation, to lay one finger 00 the
nose and gyrate all four with the thumb
foi a pivot are vulgar comic gestures,
and thus this feature of the human fact
seems, by universal consent, to be associated with the ridiculous and mean
phases and forms of life.   Why is this?
Partly becnuse occupying the center of
the physiognomy and being the most
prominent pointtherein,Its lenst singularity breaks up the harmony of the whole;
partly because It is the moet passive yet
ostentatious of the features and finally
because Its character, being indicated by
form���without mobility, like the mouth,
and changes of tint snd size, like the eye,
���hns a certain fixed emphasis whieh
provokes attention. Hence they are fortunate whose noses have an average type
and no special mold whereby they escape scrutiny.
If one turns from the form to the us*
of the nose, one will find somewhat of the
same deprecatory estimate. To smell out
a thing, for example, Is a figure of speech
which savors of indignity. It bas none
of the perspicacity of vision or the delicacy of touch. Smell Is a sense wherein
the animals are often our superiors,
which may in a degree account for this
comparative disrespect. It Is the sens*
least vaunted ns a distinction of humanity. Even ghylock appeals to the eyes
and hands, but Is silent about noses.
However, the latent affinities of this
sense are far nearer to tbe mind and fur-
iher removed from the mere animal faculty than the vulgar know. "The use of
Incense in churches," Bays Montaigne,
"so universally received in all nations
and religions, was intended to cheer us
and to purify the senses, th* better to fit
us for contemplation." He also notes as
an idiosyncrasy, " 'Tis not to be believed
how all sorts of odors cling to mo."
Although It is the blind who perhaps
appreciate most fully tha full significance of scout, even those blessed witb
perfect vision, if of sensitive temperament, hnve In this sense a prompter to
memory more instant than sight or
touch. Sandalwood can take one to the
orient; lavender to the rural households
uf eld England; frankincense to the temple nnd cathedral; pine balsam to th*
forest. What creams of youth and love
nnd sorrow come with the odor of the
violet! What dreary reminiscence of
tempestuous voyages with th* omcll of
bilge water! How diverse thc sensation
awakened by the air of a boudoir and a
hospital.���New Vcrk Press.
On* Bar ��t Ufa.
If, Invisible ourselves, wo conld follow
a single human being through a single
day of bis life and know all his secret
thoughts and hopes and anxieties, bis
[layers and tears and good resolves, his
passionate delights and struggles against
temptation, we should have poetry
enough to fill a volume.

(a) Why should we instal such u
large plant as that proposed, viz.
1,000 h. p.?
(li) What guarantee have we that
such a plant can be installed for
$150,000?
(cl Why should we blindly'agree
that a body of unknown men shall
spend or possibly misspend, onr
money'.1
(a) I am given to understand tnat
the total horse power now required
to efficiently light the city is 3110, o
this thc present plant can be safely
relied on to provide 250 h. p., at tbe
lowest stiges of water. Suppose that
the city grows larger���at present it is
practically growing smaller to judgo
by the increasing number of empty
bouses���an additional amount of
power will be needcC at some future
time for lighting, say posssibly 100
li.p.. but even so we are asked to give
our money tu install a plant that will
generate 800 h. p. more than is now,
or heieafter, to be needed for lighting. We are lead to suppose that industries will be purchasers of the surplus power at a good profit to the city,
but it this is a field for such industries why have none as yet been started with the power available from
llonnington Falls'? Do not let us be
fouled in thiB matter. If the field
existed the industries would now be
01 foot.
Are we going to follow the example
of mines that have been known to
spend large sums in mills and other
machinery before proving thnt tbey
had ore to he treated, with the result
that mills and maebinery now lie
idle. Who are the new consumers
that will buy the surplus power?
Can the supporters of thc bylaw name
five'.' Can they name three? Can they
guarantee one that will take iuo h. p.
or even 50 h. p. steadily? Industries
aie not going to spring into existence
merely because the city enters into
competition with a power company.
If the proposed gamble is a failure
the property owners have to bear all
the loss, for it is out of onr pockets
that all the interest and sinking fund
must conic.
The idea of providing power before
there is a demand for it is thoroughly
bad economically. Demand creates
supply, but, the reverse Is seldom the
case anu should never be relied on.
Yet we are asked to launch out in a
costly experiment that no business
man would seriously consider.
liefore nioviding this large excess
of power let ns have some guarantee
that it is really needed.
(li) I do not w��nt to say a word
against Mr. McCuIloch's value and
ability as city engineer, but if any
one of us was going to erect electrical
works with his private means, would
he not get the advice and estimates
from an eleotrical engineer, with a
record for suocessfol Installations? I
ean see no reason why equal precaution should not be taken in this proposed expenditure where we are providing the money.
I cannot accept the estimate of
|lb0,000 as carrying any weight or
affording any safeguard against an
eventual expenditure Of J200.0O0 or
1260,000.
(o) Who are we to have as mayor
and council for the coming year?
Would you or I care to intrust the expenditure of a large sum of onr prl
vote money to a totally unknown
man? The property owners have but
a very small voice in the election of
tile mayor nnd council, but the latter
have the power to play ducks and
dialu-s  with the former's money.
Let us know who are to be trustees
for the proper expenditure of onr
money before we vote it.
The importance of getting the lead
refinery established at Nelson should
not be lest sight of, but if this bylaw
is passed we shall be unable to offer
any bonus to induce a refinery to
come here.
Finally the prospects of Nelson just
now are none of the best. Wholesale
houses are olosing out and the population undoubtedly shrinking, though I
trust this last is but temporary It is
hot the time for going into a rash
speculation which is very likely to
leave us, like the oreless mine owner,
"ith an idle plant and a heavy debt
to pay,
Wo have danced a long time to the
tunes of one fiddler, let us call the
tnne ourselves this time.

Which this Company, who are doing business over half a continent,
has assisted its Friends and Customers to celebrate and enjoy, and
this  is the
FOURTH CENTURY.
in which we are doing business. Our long experience and our capital
obviously give us an immense advantage in supplying the very best
value in everything to our patrons. This year we have made special
efforts and have now a collection of
Christmas Goods
which cannot be surpassed in any city in Canada.
Our Dry Goods Department
is well worthy of its  reputation,   and is  replete with  articles suilable
Por Presents for Men.
Women and Children.

Christmas," and an inspection will please you as well as enable you to
select exactly what you want at
Most Reasonable Prices.
We cannot commence to enumerate, but would draw special attention
to our
Toys and Dolls
and to our Ladies' and Gent'emen's Ties which we have in all shades,

in the way of Dress Goods that tbis department cannot supply, and at
a saving. The very newest and most exquisite weaves and colorings
will be found in this vast collection, and the quantity will astonish you
as much as the quality and little prices.
Groceries.
With Groceries and Eatables quality is everything. Price is a
consideration, but its importance is second to that of quality. You
must have the finest and freshest foodstuffs obtainable, because it is
healthiest, because, in fact, in the long run it pays best. But when
you secure "top notch" quality at the minimum reasonable price,
nothing more can be wanted. This is the combination you obtain at
these Stores���quality the highest, prices the lowest.
Our Christmas Specialties
include a direct shipment of Peek, Frean & Co's Biscuits, Pascall's
Sweets, Rowntree's Confections, Christie's and McCormick's Fancy
Biscuits, English Plum Puddings, French Crystalized Fruits, Gor-
ganzola, Roquefort and English btilton Cheese.
Crockery, China and Glassware.
This depajtment is very complete. Dinner Sets, Tea Sets and
Bedroom Sets in all qualities and at all prices. We have a nice line
of special)'selected "little things", very suitable for presents, and a
choice collection of more expensive goods for the same purpose.
Cups and Saucers, Plates, dishes, Platters, etc., of every description
and style. Fancy Glass and China Ware, genuine Cut Glass Goods,
both for use and ornament. Anything and everything required in
these lines for the kitchen and diningroom is here.
Our Wine and Liquor Department
consists of direct importations front all over the world.
DEPEND UPON IT.
vou mav. we can assure you. Oor Liquors are worthy of everydeptndence. For years
aod veurs we have heen selling Liquoss, s.nd during this issue we have built up a fortress
of confidence in us and our lines which is absolutely unassailable. You run no risk
in purchasing from us. The quantity and variety of^ Donors_which you can obtain
here are lareer than you could secure elsewhere ia Western Cunada- so great indeed
is the v-trietv that we believe we can satisfy almost any individual fancy in the wny
of Wines and Liquors. The lenst you enn do at aoy rate is to give us a trial order,
and thus allow os 10 demonstrate the advantage of trading with us.

O'Reilly & Co. have no shop worn goods on their shelves.
