THE LIGHTING     Eg"l
BUSINESS1
iV-m. *31.00.*==
ior   which   it   has
Eleventh   Year
Mayor Fletcher Advises the
City to Accept the Power
Company's Offer.
By Laws
Aid.
to  Be  Submitted.
Madden Alone
Opposes.
The qnestion as to how the oity is
tn be lighted for the next twelve
months ocoupied the attention of the
coucil last night during its session.
The minutes of the previous meeting
were read by City Treasurer Wasson
in the absence of City Clerk Strachan.
The lirst business to conic up was the
reading of the report of the lluniicc
committee for tho previous month.
Tbe accounts aggrcgatod J10,t)02. The
repoit was received and adopted.
The mayor then stated that the only
business to come up was the question
as to what was to be done about the
lighting of the city. The winter was
coming on and many citizens were
asking for light whioh the city at
present was not in shape to furnish.
The maohines at present owned were
overtaxed,and if other machines could
bo procured thero was the pioDlem of
obtaining power. No more power
cniilil be obtained from the creeks,
and it was impossible to supply light
to tho lingo number of citizens who
were applying for it, leaving out all'
question of lighting the streets. The
citv was in receipt of proposals trom
tho Wost Kootenny Power Sc Light
Co. It is a question as to whether
tho city shall try to struggle along
under the present system or be properly lighted with bettor returns. The
two proposals befoie the city are:
(1) That tho Power company wil."
supply tbe eity with all the extra
h. p. needed at the rate of $50 per
horse per annum up to 200 horse
power and over that and up to 500
horse power at the rata of J45 per
annum. Over 500 horse power at the
rate of 840 per horse power; (8) to
supply the oity with all the power it
conld use, the city to pay the company 45 per cent of the gross receipts.
Tho terms of ngreunient to be for one
J ear or more, notice of change to be
given by the city six months before
termination of time first agreed upon.
Mayor Fletoher went on to say thut
at pietaut the eity could not supply
more tnan 05 per cent of the lights
needed. All the available power in
the creeks adjaoent to the city bad
beon utilized It is a question as to
whether we shall supply thc balance
of the people by getting in outside
help or olse witb the advent of cold
weather cut down the present number
of lights to give any kind of service
at all to the others. It is not a question of giving up a oity franchise, bnt
of tiding over a difficulty until the
eity is in a position to supply the
wholo needs of the community with
an enlarged plant, which it at present
is not able to put in. As far as the
present plant is concerned the figures
'or the last year, 1900, weie: cash
receipts $10,203, cost of maintenance
and construction, 9io.8G3.20; leaving
e clelt.it of gooo, without mentioning
the light that was supplied during
some months in the winter. The
h mded interest on the 870,000 capital
that is invested in th* plant was
���8,300 whioh means that the citizens
had to pay that muoh for operating
the plant. The plant bas never paid
since it was put in. And the only
way that dividends were declared on
It was by declaring the issuing of
new bonds capital, and it has never
Paid except by paying dividends out
ol that capital. This year it is not
going to pay the city a cent, even
supposing that they could continue on
the pres-nt Oasis. So far this year
the receipts had been $15,000, and
expenses of maintenance and construction 87,507 with the addition of 84,735
'�����*���__, Allowing for no further
troubles and only ordinary expenses
the city would still oome out behind,
has never paid a cent since it
put in, and tha construction and
mantenanee is running the invested
MJital in It up to. great extent."
Alderman Paterson-Would not the
entering into of an agreement such as
��"-*"Uo���ed, cvork against the oily
<"*��"������*��   the   water   rights   on   tbe
"It
was
Mayor Flnlcher���Wo have never
boun able to get any satisfaction
regarding thotu rights through out
local mombor or anyone olse. We
bave written every member of the
government, and even the premier on
the subject, but Supposing we could
obtain that right today it would moan
the expenditure of $860,000 or (800,000.
Alderman Hamilton���If we could
get Hit would take eighteen months
to instal it, and iu the meantime the
rnto of taxation would reach an immense height. The city is not yet in
a position to attempt such a scheme,
but tho present system is most decidedly Inadequate,
Alderman Madden thought it would
be better tc buy what they needed
from the Power coinpany from month
to month, [lo was opposed to making
any agreement whatever with them.
Alderman Selous said that lm had
jotted clown tho four alternatives
before tho city, assuming tbat son c-
thing must be clone: Kirst, to secure
additional power trom the Kco'enay
river; second, to put in steam or gas
power; third, to secure additional
power from tho Power oompany
people; fourth, to make an agreement
on a percentage basis as pre ,iosed.
As to the tint it would cost $250,000.
In the second proportion it would
cost $11,0(10 for 200 horsepov *r. In
the third if we secured hnlf from the
power company and supplied hilf onr*
solvos besides having the expense, ono
half would bo getting a 24-hour ser*
vice while the other would only got
the present short syttotu which would
cause considerable dissatisfaction.
in the fourth proposition we would
reoeivc all the light needed say at a
cost of 813,000, with estimated receipts of $27,000. Out of theoity's
balance all that would come wonld be
the cost of one man to look after tbo
lights and a small proportion for repairs. Ilusides this the eity would
havo a first-class light rr inlng 24
hours per diem. It seftraed tc him
that the city bad been charging a
heavy rate for an oxtremely poor
light. Now we have the chance uf
securing a first-class light with a
good profit.
After some further disonssion of the
various plans the following motion
was proposed by Alderman Selous,
seconded by Alderman Gillette:
Tbat, in tho opinion of the couneil it
is expedient and necessary that the
council should take action to improve
the electric light service,
All but Alderman Madden voted in
the affirmative.
Alderman Selous then made another
motion, seconded by Alderman Paterson : Thnt, after full discussion of
the various schemes suggested that
the council is of tbe opinion tbat the
percentage system is the one best
adapted to tbe oity.
In this the vote stood as in the previous motion.
Alderman Helo-is then proposed his
third and final motion: That, the
mayor be requested to confer with the
city solioitor with a view to bringing
in a by-law embodying thc terms of
this suggested agreement to be submitted to the ratepayers at the earliest
possible opportunity. On this Alderman Madden was .._8'n in opposition.
Informal discussion of the matter
followed and the council adjourned. J

American Board of Foreign Missions
gave out a letter today pait of whioh
reads:
'To the American people���The case
of Miss Stone, now in the hands of
Turkish brigands lias unclergoie no
matorial change. In the office of the
American Board nnd among her immediate friends tbe greatest anxiety
prevails. Our government at Washington bus not mortified thc opinion
uttered by President Roosevelt, thnt
thete is but one. thing to he clone, and
that is to raise the sum demanded for
her ransom ns quickly as possible. Of
this sum $00,0,0 has already subscribed, far the larger part of it from
Boston nnd iu the immediate vicinity.
A multitude of ber neighbors in every
condition of life have po. red their
gifts into the Boston ollice for hoi
deliverance, but it is not sufficient.
Fifty thousand dollars more are required. We appeal now to those
among us who by the blessing of God,
have larger financial ability, to supplement the contributions of theii
neighbors, that the necessary Hum may
be reached. An answer is anxio'isly
awaited at the office of the Amerioun
board, 105 East 22nd street, New
York,where subscrptions to the undersigned will be received. (Signed) C.
O, Crcegan, district secreary; Henry
Stimson, recording seeretary "
Dr. Crecgan said the hoard nad received assurances from the United
Stales government in the past few
days that the only thing that could be
done was to raise the money ncoossary
for the payment of the ransom.
SAY BRIGANDS ARE TURKS.
London, Oct.14.���The Daily Express
bas received the following from
Vienna: Todroff, the driver who accompanied Miss Stone when she wus
kidnapped, bas ariived at Sofia. Ho
says her captors are Turks. The
Bulgarian police, who are not satisfied with his statements, are keeping
him under closo eurveillouce.
THEY PROPHESY EVIL.
Toronto, Oct. 14.���The Evening
Telegram's London cable says: Tho
opinion of half a dozen prominent
steamship managers here is, that the
projected Canadian fast line will
prove a failuie. Two expressed no
fear of competition with a Cape Breton line, as during the summer it
would secure only a fow passengers
and In winter praotically none. A
twenty-knot service, they say, is not
considered necessary to carry iron ore
to this  country.

Hon  Smith   Curtis
Pointedly on Premier's
Contentions.
Five Million Dollar Loan to
Be Floated without
Delay.
Hon. Smith Curtis is in the city en
route to Roisland from the coast and
the Similkameen country, where he
has spent tho last six weeks. While
speaking of the condition of aiFairs
in tbo Similkameen he suid: "Tilings
are still quiet there, but there are
signs of an early revival based upou
the belief that there will soonbo a now
government which will make pro
vision for the construction of a Coast
to Kootenay railway. There is a
large amonnt of capital ready to go
into that district the moment it is
known that the railroad will como. "
While in the Similkameen Mr.Ouitis
closed a deul for the salo of his town-
site at the foot of Copper and Kennedy
mountains, known as Copperfield, the
pnrbeasors being made up principally
of Nelson people. Tho townsite is
splendidly situated and, besides being
the natural site for tbe mining town
of the very large and rich copper district adjacent to it, Is also underlaid
with and surrounded by deposits of
coal whioh are controlled by the Nelson company.
"1 whs told that on Nine Mile
creek, which is on the west side
of the townsite, thc company had uncovered a coal seam having an apparent thieknsss of about 50 feet and
that the ooal is of a good qualilty.
The company has also secured cool
rights in Collins' gulch, a few miles
north on the Tulameen river, whore
the veins aro 5(1 feet thick. 1 had an
analysis made of this eoal by the government assayer at Victoria and tho
results show it tu be a valuable coal.''
Speaking of the political situation
at the coast, Mr. Curtis said: "The
assertion of Premier Dnnsmuir that
he has tbe support of 22 members is
perfectly absurd. It is doubtful if he
can master 14. As a matter of f;irt, a
it-majority of the members is pledged to
vote want oi commence ia the government. Mr. Dunsmuir ought to know
this and especially after the reveise
which his now departure mot at New
Westminster should resign, and if he
does not soon take tbis couise of his
own motion he will likely be forced
to do bo by other moans. Upon bis
retirement a coalition government
will doubtless be forced for the purpose of passiug a redistribution act
and it may also deal with other pressing matters if they can be agreed
upon. These metiers would include a
coast to Kootenay railway and tbe
recently disallowed acts respecting
immigration and the employment oi
certain labor. Probably a fairer re*
distribution act oan be got from such
a coalition than from any party government. To obtain my support, for
instance, there would havo to bo an
express agreement by tho government
funned that in ihe event of any difference in the coalition party as to the
proper distribution of scats the chief
justice or some other justice of the
supremo court would be asked to give
his opinion as to what was fair and
tHat such an opinion would be followed. Tbis rather unusual way would
prevent the old charge, and I fear, the
just chaige, of tbe Island and the
Coast getting an nndue poitiou of
benefits.
"As to how far oi long I would
support such a coalition government
that would depend upon two factors,
ibe first being to what extent it was
dealing promptly and effectively witb
progressive measures for tbo development of tbe province, and tbe second
being, tbe wishes of the Libeials and
Labor people throughout the province.
I would consider it my duty to carry
out in this togaid tlie wishes of these
two classes of the voters of whom
almost entirley I owe my seat io the
house.
"Although the government ie undoubtedly moribund and wuuld meet
signal defeat on the assembling of the
house one of the ministers   has   stuted
| that it may uot meet   until   April   or
May, which would mean that nothing
JiH to bo clone   meantime   for the relief J
of business in tlio country by instituting u vigorous policy of development.
that tho Hon. Mr
Prentice will start next week foi
England to negotiate for n louu ni
8b.000,000  for   which   provision  was
_. -nade by the Public Works' Loan Act.
OpeaKS ||t is hardly to be believed that Unpeople or its mouthpieces the press
will, without vigorous protest, ever
submit to a discredited, minority-
supported government acting in this
outrageous manner. Suoh a government could not possibly negotiate a
loan on any fair terms. This attempt
to do so shows how utterly unfitted
tbo premiur is to occupy his piesent
position, how little be cares about the
wishes of tho people and what small
knowledge he has of fair play or constitutional government.
"A general election is not unlikely
to come in tbo near futuro and in m.,
-���pinion it will be run upon party
lines of which I am heartily in
favor."

K1VEB IMPROVEMENTS.
VMll* TO TIIE FRONT.
The Ymir camp and the district
around ii. is more prosperous thun it
lias been for a long time past. Tho
mining section around Yrair is onu of
thu most valuable in Hritish Columbia, and the on'y reason tbat it in
not in a more advanced stnto is a lack
of capital, but what money has been
invested there has pioduced as good
results as anywhere iu the Kootenays.
ibe citizens of Ymir are alive to the
possibilities of tho district und to the
necessity of advertising thorn. With
that end in view they Inst week held
nn enthusiastic meeting and formed a
board of trade, Tho enlarged prosperity which Ymir is enjoying is reflected in the columns of the Ymir
Mirror, in which is found the following: "The business transacted at the
mining recorder's ollice at Nelson for
thu past couple of weeks has been
chiclly from thc Ymir district, na the
official list, published in the Mirror,
shows. Older sections of the country
nave mado themselves agreeably
proniineut���that is, camps that were
csinhlishcd before (juariz creek was
known or Ymir appeared on tho ie*
vised map uf the Kootenays. Now our
turn is coining, and Ymir is to havo
her innings. In this camp is one, nt
least, of the best paying mining properties in Hritish Columbia, dropping
eighty stnmp-i, and thero is other
ground in the distiict equally as
good, which is bound to he taken up
and which will piovo just as profitable. Ymir is, without doubt, the
free milling camp of the couutry.
The rock sparkles with gold, and
every property lhat has been worked
shows up exceptionally well. While
other camps have been boomed, Ymir
has beon slowly but surely coming to
thu front, and lt is today receiving
more attention than perhaps any other
part of tho Kootenays. Tbo claim
owners here havo Confidence in their
properties, nnd are piepnred to hold
on to the until ihe proper parties open
negotiations. Thexe are no wild cuts
offering and while there arc several
decidedly cheap prospects to be picked
up, the well-developed holding will
nil be purled with nt n sacrifice.
Claitn-lioldeis,   however,   aie  nt   ull
Biitish Columbia has a splendid
systom of waterways and thoy have
played an important part in the
development of tbe mineral rooomces,
as they furnished in the earlier history about tho only means of trans,
portation. With a little improvement
here and there they could be made navi-
gaiile to a greater extent than thoy are.
The Kootenuy Mail states that Mr. C.
Holtcn, who has been in charge of
the improvements on the upper Columbia states that both Priest aud Death
rapids ou the Columbia can be made
available for navigation, nud tbere
is no reason why steamers should not
run from Revelstoke to Cauoe River,
thus opening up to transportation a
large urea of country. Mr. Oulliber,
M. P., should, during the coming
session of parliament, obtain a substantial sum for the improvement of
the Upper Columbia. Tho traffic
betwoen Uevelstoke and Canoe river,
when the impediments to navigation
between the two places at Priest and
Death rapids arc icmoved, should be
large. It is thought 1900,000 should
be sufficient to put the Upper Colum
bitt in li-sl-ilasH shape and tins sum
should hn appropriated for that pur
pose by the Federnl government.

Province in commenting upon this
Bays as a result of the repudiation of
Martin and his henchmen "the asso

SMELTER   CONDITIONS.  '
Views Expressed hy   Smelter   Man of
Wido Mxperience.
D C. Johnson, oro buyer for the
Everett Smeller, passed through Nelsou yesterday after n trip to Kaslo.
In converralion with a representative
of the Miner, Mr. Johnson discussed
several phases of smelting as the market fot silver and lead ores are
alTented theioby.
The demand for the different
classes of ore, he said, may be said
to go in cycles. Some years ugo there
was n surplus of dry ores in the
Uniled States, to form a smelting
mixture with which the wet oies of
the Slocan were required. Then exceptionally good rates weie given.
Later the rice in the price of lead set
all the prospectors and miners looking for lead o es wilh tho result that
it has come about tbat there is an
overproduction to counterbalance
which the demand tor dry ores has
sprung up. Since the opening up of
so many load mines within the United
Stales the home production tliore is
greater than tbo demand, consequently all lead in oro imported has
to find a market abroad. The price of
lead in Loudon is now only a very
little below the average of the last
twelve years so that condition may bo
called normal. Most of the Everett
smelter's lead obtained from imported
ores goes to London and is nhipped in
steamers. To obtain the proper
smelter mixture roquired it to draw
supplies from a very wide area. Just
now it was getting ore from various
parts of tbo State of Washington,
British Columbia, Butte and Alaska,
and it is even negotiating with
some Chilian mines.
As regards the smelting aud refining of the silver-lead ores of Kootcnny
in Nelson, the conditions are on a par
with thoso at Everett. A local smelter
would requite t J get the proper fluxes,
then tn do the roHniiijr and finally to
ship tho product to the markets of
the world. He oould not see that the
conditions were any different, neither
hotter nor worse.
TO DRILL FOR ,1,000 PRIZE.
W. J. Ross, the well known Phoenix
rock driller, who made a good record
with bis partner, McLeod,nt Spokane,
at the Elks' io I; diilling contest, lefl
Phoenix on Tuesday's train for Lead-
ville, says the Phoenix Tioncer, to
tako part in another similar cuntest
on October 20th, The dav before he
received a telegram from MsNicol, at
Victor, Colo., telling niin of the great
conlost at Leadville, where $1,000
would be the first prize, 8300 the
second nnd so on. Ross will drill wilh
McNicol, also uf this camp, and who
won first prize with Burns at Grand
Forks on Dominion Day. They will
doubtless give a good account of
themselves when tbe great event
takes placo.

Special Features of the
Florence   Hot   Blast
Our New Idea Deflector Fire Pot greatly increases tke heating capacity of the stove, and in connection with the deflector^ ring forces the
heat to the floor. The base is hot, the floor being warmer than w*th a
base burner.
The Hot Rlast Attachment takes in the cold air through a duct at the
rear of the fire pot, the heated air being discharged in a circle at the lop
of fire pot, over fire, thus consuming all the gases and pro-lucts of combustion. It can be operated in connection with the front draft door, or
independently, by a screw register in the rear of base, insuring complete
control of the ste ve with nearly perfect combustion.
The large Hot Air Circulating Flue on the back takes the cold air from
the floor and ejects it .ntensely heated, through the top ad.'ing greatly
to the heating capacity.
Where the stove is operated according to directions_\ve guarantee it to
consume all the gas contained in soft co'al, thus deriving the benefit of
all the heat in the fuel consumed, causing a truly remarkab'e saving of
fuel over any other stove on the market. The stov*- will hold fire from
24 to 48 hours without attention.
