Eleventh  Year
WORTHY OF
CONFIDENCE
All of Mayor Fletcher's Ticket Are Pioneers of
Nelson.
Men    of   Business   Ability
and Sturdy Uprightness.
Mayor Fletcher and tbe aldermen
who are supporting him do not appeal
to the ratepayers as new men ; they
arc all old residents of the city, each
has been successful in his own line of
businesss they are well acquainted
witli the needs of the. oity and tbeir
welfare is bound up with it. Tbeir
whole life in Nelson show them to be
meu well fitted for the trust which
the voters put pose to put on them, and
if elected, the city's interests will be
well lookod after during the coming
year.
A noteworthy feature of today's
election is that Mayor Fletcher and
five of tbe gentlemen who are supporting him, runniig for aldermen, have
been citizens of Nolson from its inception in 1890, and the sixth, Aid.
Gillette, has also beon a resident for
a nnmber of years.
Mayor Fletcher developed and sold
one of the first gold mines of this
district, tbe Fern, on Salmon river,
after he came here in the spring of
1890 to select crown lands for the
Kootenay and Southern railway company, lie bus been with the oountry
through the different stages of its
growth, and is thoroughly familiar
with all parts of it. In the early history of tbe city in conjunction with
the governmont he was instrumental
111 securing the expenditure uf money
to grade and lay out many of the
streets of the city. Besides having
been mayor for the past year he has
served two terms as alderman and has
always taken an active and leading
part is all the civic improvement
plans that have been brought forward.
Alderman Harold Selous bas resided
in the city since 1889, when he arrived
fiom Alaska. Besides his mining
interests in various parts of the district he owns a large quantity of real
estate in the city, and there is no one
With whose interests those of the city
are bound np more olosely than Mr.
Selous'.
Alderman John Hamilton has lived
iu this oity since October of 1891 having before that been at Sproat's Landing. Mr. Hamilton has considerable
propeity in the city, and has been one
of the best members of the council in
the term just passed, where his large
supply of good common sense and
business ability have made bim of
material assistance in carrying on the
business of the city. Arriving here
witb the surveying of the flrst line of
track into tbe city he has seen that
single track running up to a little
board shed that did duty for a station,
multiply into the splendid yards that
now give room for the long trains of
freight handled each day through tne
city.
Alderman John Paterson is another
well known citizen on the streets of
Nelson. He came to Nelson in 1891
from Victoria to install the machinery
in the steamer Nelson, which was one
of the first steamers on this lake. In
January 1893 he purchased the steamer
Ainswrth with his partners and operated it for some time. In 1898 he returned to tie old country, hut was
>icon back in Nelson. He owns considerable property in the city.
IV.J.,better known as Blake Wilson,
was the pioneer in the meat business
In lhe Koottnays. In tbe early days
before railway or sceamer had penetrated the Kootenays Mr. Wilson
drove in bands of cattle from the
Plains of Alberta through the lonely
(-row's Nest trail across the divide
and down the valley of the Elk river
to tlie Kootenay, thence up by Fort
Steele and along the Dewdney trail to
tie Salmon river valley. He settled
jo Nelson in ��� 1891, and has alwavs
Mi-en an active interest in the affairs
"I the oity. Mr. Wilson owns a large
amount of property here and his in-
M ',.',",tne c'ty's welfare is large.
**r. Wilson has already served one
term as alderman.
Alderman W. G. Gillett is a well
Known   builder  and contractor of the
ny and has superintended the erec-
| on   of the majority  of the handscme
de
1ms,nesi- blocks of Nelson,   winning a
rvedly high reputation for ability
and fair dealing   in   ao   doinK.      pis
"wrests  are all  In the oity.   and as
make a good representative for the
peoplo of tbe East Ward.
John Elliot, one of the new candidates, is another "old-timer" in tbe
city, and is one of the leading lawyers
of the district. ln the present campaign,owing to the illness of the chief
justice at Victoria, Mr. Elliot has
been unable to conduct a personal
campaign, but his friends bave been
working hard in his interests, and his
prospects ol election are very good.
He is not the solicitor for the West
Kootenay Light and Power Co.
Fiom the above list of names it will
be seen how fortunate Mr. Fletcher is
in the aldermanic candidates who are
supporting him, embracing, as they
do, representative men from tbe leading departments of industry of tbe
country. All are thoroughly praotical
and experienced business men, and all
have been successful in tlieir chosen
calling, at which they have beeu
working in the city from the timo
they came here All of them have
their business interests hound up with
the welfare of Nelson.

CITY GOVERNMENT.
KINGS OF THE TRACK.
Three Noted Trotters Matched For
$20,000.
New York, Jan. 15.���The cheques
for $5.00(1 eaoh were received here late
this evening from Thos. W. Lawson,
of Boston, to close the negotiations
over the talked of race between his
trotter, Boralraa, E. E. Sniither's
horse Lord Derby, and The Abbott,
owned by J. J. Scannell, former fire
commissioner. This is the outcome ot
Mr. Lawson offer to trot Boralma,
.2:07, against any horse in"the world.
When this challenge was made known
Messrs. Smithers and Scannell posted
forfeits and Mr. Lawson was advised
of the fact. The arrangements for the
two matches now are as follows:
The Boralma-Lord Derby race, and
the Boralma-Abbott will be trotted
some time between July 15 and
September 1st, 1902 and will be for
$20,000 a side. The club offering the
iargest stake will get the'events and
the two special matches will be decided in favor of the winner of tbe best
out of five heats in each case. Mr.
Lawson says in his letter today, "ln
regard to this race, I do not want you
to split any hairs."
The remainder of the side stakes is
to be posted as follows: 85,000 on
signing the articles; $5,GOO on the
first day of July and the final $5,000
on tbe night before the race.
SENTENCED FOR PROCURING
Galloway's Wife Gives Testimony in
His Behalf.
Grand Forks, Jan. 15.���In the
county court today Judge Leamy
found Sim Galloway, ot Spokane,
guilty of procuring and sentenced him
to 23 months' imprisonment in the
common jail at hard labor. Galloway
came hers from Spokane and permitted his wife to enter a disorderly
house. Thc girl-wife's evidenoe exonerated the prisoner,
Additional evidence, as if it were
needed, of the almost slavish subserviency of J. A. Kirkpatrick, candidate
tor mayor, to John Houston, editor of
the Tribune, was furnished yesterday.
It is fortunate, to, that this incident
came to light yesteiday, as It will
give the ratepayers additional insight
into the influence which the editor in
question wields over his candidate,
and it ia much tetter that this fact is
known now thau if some few voted
for Mr. Kirkpatriok under tbe mistaken idea that he U his own master.
That one man should have such complete control over the actions of another seems absolutely startling and
emphasises the fact that the battle of
today is to decide whether one man
shall manage the affairs of this city
or whether the mass of the people
shall govern it as it should be governed in the interests of all the   citizens.
The story of subserviency seems
strange and remarkable but it reveals
that truth is often stranger than
fiction. The story had its start on
Monday last when Mr. Fletoher sent
the following letter to Mr. Kirkpatrick :
Nelson, Jan. 13th, 1902.
John A. Kirkpatrick, Esq., Nelson,
B. C. :
Dear Sir,���As I am holding a public
meeting tonight at S.30 in the opera
house here, I beg to invite you and
your supporters to be present. If you
desire any one besides yourself to
speak, kindly furnish me the name or
names by bearer.    Yours truly,
FRANK FLETCHER.
No reply was reoeived to this letter
and during the progress of the evening at the Opera House un Monday
evening, W. W. Beer, the chairman,
on two occasions politely requested
Mr. Kirkpatrick and his supporters to
come on the stage for the purpose of
disoussing the issues of the campaign,
but they failed to respond to the
invitation. Yesterday Mr. Fletcher
sent the following letter to Mr.  Kirk
patrick and it was delivered to him at
5 p. m.:
J. A. Kirkpatrick, Esq., Nelson,
B.C.:
Dear Sir,���I invited you to my
meeting on Monday evening and
would have been pleased to have had
you address the electors. I have not
bad any formal invitation lrom yon
and the notice in the paper is not
quite clear as to whether I or any of
my supporters would be given a
chance to address the electors if present this evening. Kindly let rae know
by bearer whether or no I would have
a fair opportunity witb one supporter
of addressing your meeting tonight
should I desire to attend. Awaiting
your reply, 1 remain, etc.,
FRANK FLETOHER.
Jan. 15th, 1902.
Accompanied by the hearer of the
letter Mr. Kirkpatriok went into his
committee rooms and taking pen and
paper started to write a reply. John
Huuston then arbitrarily interfered
aud with a frown which was five
wrinkles deep, ordered Mr. Kirkpatrick not to write a reply, and at
tbe same time, directing tbe bearer to
inform Mr. Fletoher that there
was no time for him or any of his
supporters to speak at their meeting.
Mr. Kirkpatrick seemed to be momentarily in doubt but he did not write a
reply, but sent the verbal message to
Mayor Fletcher hy the bearer that
"the time would be all taken up by
themselves," thus meekly submitting
to the dictation of his sponsor, How
he could treat Mayor Fletcher's communication witb such a lack of
courtesy seems nothing short of remarkable, as usually he is a most
courteous gentleman. His action can
only be attributable to tbe sinister
influence whicb his political backer
holds over him and which he will use
to the full limit in case of the improbable event of his election. Voters who
do not desire to see a government by
proxy should see that the above inoi
dent shows what they may expect if
they fail to support Mr. Fletcher.
Down with the one man power.
provincial house held a five-hour
caucus on Monday evening lor the discussion of the Liquor act. Tho members who were present tay tbey had a
hot time. The discussion in fact,
was so warm that another meeting
will be necessary before the government supporters can be biought into
line. It was agreed that a referendum
vote should be taken nt tho earliest
possible date and that tne municipal
lists should be used.
The question of thc majority necessary to oarrv the act into effect wa��
the chief bone ot contention. Some
members suggested that i majority of
the total possible vote should be demanded, while others favored a
Btraight majority of the vote recorded.
A compromise wbich seemed to catch
the majority ar.d which will probably be decided upon, was that the
majority to be demanded should be
02 1-2 pei cer_t. of the vote polled to
bring prohibition into effect. The
Conservative members of the honso
really favorable to prohibition
believe that this majority can be
secured while those opposed to it
believe they ean defeat tbe measure.
A discovery of gold is reported from
Holland where a farmer named Campbell found two nuggets in Cvpress

accompany Prince Henry to the
United States and many young noblemen are bringirg influences to bear to
obtain appointments for this duly.
The list of possible appointments is
already several times larger than the
suite which oan he sent with Prince
Henry. Tbis pressure to secure places
may cause the Prince's suite to be enlarged. Tbe lack of accommodations
for a number of persons on board the
Hohenzollern gives rise to the question why Prince Henry does not sal)
on the Imperial yacht.

government has reached (he conviction
somewhat slowly perhaps that the
great republic in the west bas become

REAR ADMIRAL EVEANS
Will Have Charge of Official Reception

Long today oalled Rear-Admiral Rob-
ley D. Evans into consultation respecting the coming visit to the
United Slates of Prince Henry of Germany. The rear-admiral has not yet
been given written orders detailing
bim to act as the representative of
the navy at the reception but that
matters have been agreed npon and
Secretary Long today attached Admiral Evans Tilth tbe preparations of
a naval programme for the reception.
In view of the number of distinguished officers who are now reported
to be about to accompany the Piince
on his visit.it is evident that Admiral
Evans will require the assistance of a
number of jnnor officcis. They will
be detailed us occasion requires. So
far the State department II not officially advised of the approaching visit
of the Prince, hence it has done nothing towards arranging a programme
for hiB reception and entertainment.
It is assumed at the War department,
thougb orders have not yet been
issued, that Major-General Brooke as
the commander-in-chief of the department of the east, will represent the
United States army in the reception.
DE.SIGNERS AT WORK.
Lipton   Makes Definite Arrangements
For Shamrock III.
London, Jan. 15���After a lengthy
interview held today with Sir Thomas
Lipton, tbe Associated Press has no
reason to doubt the correctness ot the
arrangement announced yesterday
that William Fife, of tbe Fairlie-on-
the-Clyde yards, is to built! Sir
Thomas Lipton's next challenger for
the America's cup. It need only be
added that no contracts to this end
havo yet been signed and that this fact
constitutes the basis for tbe technical
denisls of the previous announcement.
It may also be aaded that the association of William Fife and G.L. Watson
in the construction of the next challenger is likely to be even more intimate than was forecast in yesterday's
despatch, these two yacht designers
being now apparently willing to form
what amounts to a partnership over
Shamrock III. That Mr. Fife la to
have the major share of the work In
constructing the new yacht is greatly
due to Mr. Watson's declination to
leave home again for any length of
time so lung as his mother, who is In
delicate health, remains alive. The
denials of the announcement of January 14th, appearing in the English
newspapers, may be totally disregarded.

tho relations of Urwat Britain abroad
on the opening of parliament, dwells
on the Inct that Anglo-American
friendship has been cemented bv the
sympathy evoked by the deaths of

Telegraph savs genuine sympathy was
entertained in this country for the
United States in connection witn the
Cuban troubles and that substantial
marks of friendlinss, which are yet
official seciets, havo helped to smooth

8VENGALL1 AND TRILBY.
That J. A. Kirkpatrick ia playing
tlio part ol Trilby and John Houston
that of Svengalli iu the municipal
campaign waa shown in a most marked manner yesterday. Retore Mayor
Fletcher and his supporting aldermen
hold their meeting on Monday evening a courteous invitation was sont to
Mr. Kirkpatrick and his friends to
participate in it and to discuss tbo
issues ol the campaign. Not even a
reply was vouschafed to the invitation. During the course of the meeting W. W. Beer, the chairman, repeated tho invitation to Mr. Kirkpatrick and hia colleguet, to corue on tho
stage, but not one of them came
forward.
Yesterday Maynr Fletoher sent a
communication to Mr. Kirkpatrick,
asking if he (Mr. Fletcher) and one of
his supporters would be given a
chance to address the electors present
at last night's meeting and to
let him know if such opportunity wonld be granted. The letter
was delivered to Mr. Kirpkatrick personally at 5 p. in. Tbe bearer went
with Mr Kirkpatrick into his committee room and he started to write a
reply. Then John Houston in an
arbitrary manner interfered and
ordered Mr. Kirkpatrick not to reply,
and to inform Mr. Fletcher that there
was 'no time for Mr. Fletcher or any
of his supporters to speak at their
meeting." Mr. Kirkpatrick seemed
to be momentarily in doubt, and as
the bearer of Mr, Fletcher's message
was still waiting he finally gave him
the verbal message to Mr. Fletcher
that ''the lime wDuld all be taken by
themselves."
This incident shows how eompl'tely
Mr. Kirkpatriek is under the Svengalli like control of Mr. Houston, and
that tbe oitizens may expect in the
most unlikely event of Mr. Kirkpatrick being elected, when he cannot
even write a lettur when Mr. Houston
says he must not. The city would be
in a nice condition with such a man
aa this in tbe place of mayor. Vote
for M'. Fletchei and his aldeimanic
supporters if you would avoid a badly
governed city during the next 13
months.'
Mr. Kirpkatrick in this position
would be a more complete and
ignominious failure than he waa as a
member of the board of aldermen,
On tho other hand, Mr. Fletcher has
made a Bplendld presiding offler of thc
council. Ii�� takes the initiative and
haa beeu mayor not hy proxy but in
fact. He has given the people an
economical and at the same time a
progressive government. That there
was a btroug exeoutive in tbo city
saddle haa been recognized by the
elements of disorder and life and property have been safer in Nelson than
under the previous administration,
which is evidenced by the fewer num.
ber of arrostB.
Considerable fear has been expressod
that the criminal element would grow
bold If a weak mau like Mr. Kirkpatrick wero made mayor.
Tho affairs of the oity have been
most ably administered and a tbe
same time a number of publio Improvements have been mado. During the year 1003 a continuation
of this wise, strong and ben-
efieeut policy is certain if Mayor
Fletcher and his supporting aldermen
are elected, and wc believe that the
count this evening will show that
they have been by a large majority.
MAYORALTY   CANDIDATES
COMPARED.
J. A Kirkpatrick has been put forward by certain Interested parties as
a candidate for mayor, and it is as
plain as a pikestaff that the only
reason why this has been done is because his main supporter is certain
that he will be a mere puppet in his
bands that he will do exactly as he is
told ; that he will take the initiative
in nothing himself, but will folluw
the advice ani commands of those who
have brought him out and who have
been grooming hini'or the mayoralty
race.
Mr. Kirkpatriek is not a strong
personality, as he prefers following to
leading, and he is just the sort of an
individual who is wanted by those
who are striving to run oity affairs to
suit their own ends.
Mr. Kirkpatrick while a good citizen haa none ol the strong qualities
which the chief executive of a city
like Nelson ihonld have.
While in the city council he was
simply a chair warmer. He voted
"aye" and "nay" and these monosyllables were the only eloquent
speeches which he made.
In not a single instance did he take
the initiative in any measure and it
waa always a case of "follow my
leader" with bim.
Mr. Kirkpatrick never shewed the
least capacity for thinking for himself
when any public question came up.
It is saiil that when the bylaws for
extending tbe water and the lighting
system came up tnat al first he favored
these measures. The Tribune opposed
them and this was the signal for him
to go into the lanks of the opposition
to the two bylaws. They, however,
were adopted notwithstanding the fact
that he was opposed to them, if he is
so fortunate as to be elected maycr.
which is extremely improbable, the
same charicteristics whi'h made him
a failure as a councilman will be still
more glaring and hurtful in the position of mayor, which is one
which should be occupied by a leader
of men and not a follower.
A POLITICAL HARLEQUIN.
The ratepayers will vote against
Mr. Kirkpatrick and his political
sponsor for a good many rensonB not
the least of whicb Is the fact that Mr.
KirkpatricK is certain to be ruled hy
an individual who changes bis political complexion and his viewB on political issues and publio questions as
quckly as a lightning change artist
does his costume. An administration
run In the manner in which it would
bo with Mr. Kirkpatrick as mayor
would be unstable, whimsical and
unreliable, with no fixed policy oi
purpose except in the direction of getting even with political opponents and
those who have had the courage of
their convictions to a sufficient degree
to oppose those advocated by the
Tribune. Here are a few of the
things with which the editor of the
Tribune may be justly charged.
Mr. Houston favored an 8-hour law
for miners but bitterly fought the
attempt of tbe clerks to obtain a half
holiday during the hot suuiinei
months.
Mr. Houston supported tbe miners
in Rossland but was opposed to tne C.
P. R. truckmen when they tried to
have their wages increased to 81.50
per day.
Mr. Houston until recently opposed
the C. P. R. which all will admit has
done considerable toward the upbuild
ing of the town. Now be appears to
champion its cause on occasions when
his services are needed
Mr Houston strongly advocated the
election of Mayor Fletcher and the
aldermen in sympathy with him, and
now he is asking the people, like
weathercscas, to change their views
in order to suit his whim and fancy
Mr. Houston opposed the   undertak
ing of tlie  tramway and did   the  best
he could to belittle the   enterprise   of
those   wbo   invested   money   in     the
undertaking
Mr Hcustou has opposed many local
enterprises which were not due to his
own promotion
Mr Houston has fought with the
Nelsou Gas and Coke company and its
mode of carrying on its business
Mr Houston has made friends with
the Liberals and used the party organ
ization to assist in his election, and
afterwards joined hands with the
Conservatives.
Mr Houston bas endeavored to divide
the   Conservative  party into two   factions in order to serve his own politi
cai ends
Mr Houston has pretended to sup
port organised labor and when the
time came when it needed tbe support
of himself and paper they were found
to be wanting
Mr Houston has abused almost every
citizen of Nelson who has seen fit to
show the courage of his convictions to
lhe extent of differing from him on
any public question.
Mr. Houston has boxed the political
compass and has shown himself to be
as unstable as the wind How can he,
therefore, expect the people to support
a candidate which he has taken nnder
his wing and wbo will simply be his
tool Wu prophecy tbat tbe voers bave
too much sense to put the seal of their
approval ou a candidate having so
irresponsible a backer
It looks, therefore, like a foregone
conclusion that Mr Kirkpatrick and
his supporting aldermanic candidates
would ".be snowed undei today at the
polls
EDITORIAL NOTE?.
"Hereditary bondsmen: know   ye not
Who   would be free   themselves most
strike the blow?"
To indulge in the luxury of a man
like Mr. Houston has cost us some
thing in the past, says the Nelson
Economist. Are the citizens disposed
to perpetuate the extravagance.-

THE FINAL
MEETING
Candidate Kirkpatrick Speaks
But Does Not Say
Much.
His Sponsor Indulged In Objurgations and Some
Abuse.
At tho Opera House last evening tho
Houston - Kirkpatriok combination
oallud a meeting of its suppoitors, but
the large audience that assembled to
hear what tho Buppirtera of the ticket
had to say was largely composed of
tbo friends of Mayor Fletcher, and of
his supporting aldermanic candidates.
()n"thc platform was Dr McLennan,
the chairman, and J Houston, J A
Kirkpatrick, Aid Irving, D C Mo-
Morris, T J Hoanlan, and K Drew. In
the body of the ball was Mayor
Fletcher, the members of the council,
all of lho Fletcher committee, W. A.
Macdonal and a large number of the
supporters of Mr. Fletoher and his
ticket.
Speecbos were made by Aid. Irving
and die other candidates dealing with
civic affairs in which the principal
object was to attack the retiring
council in glittering generalities.
J. A. Kirkpatrick made a short
speeoh, but as he had apparently not
committed it to memory very well
before coming to the hall it did not
have the effect his supporters seemed
to wish. Taking a copy of the
Tribuni he said that his first duty
was to inform the people that he was
J. A. Kirkpatrick, and net J.Houston,
still no one would mistake him for
Houston. The latter gentleman was
receiv.ng a lot of abuse from Mr.
Fletcher and his supporters, but a
year ago Mr. Fletcher thought very
differently of Mr. Houston an! was
most anxious to gain his support.
"Why, a yoar ago I waa on a committee with Mr. Houston when Mr.
i'let .'her came to us and practically
'bought' ns to support him. He went
on to road his platform from the
papnr, but did not seem very familiar
with its wording, and made a number of mistakes as though he was
looking at it for the flrst time. He
mnde some comments on it. Speaking
of the council not having collected
some accounts be stated that in the
course of his canvassing he had met a
large number of individuals who had
been in business in Nelson and now
were out of it, who said that they
bad not paid their licenses. There
were certain persons In the city employ whom he had met in saloons,
and who explained their presence
there by stating that they were looking for some one. If he was elected
to the offide of mayor ho would be
contented with the present salary and
not ask foi a raise. After a few
more woros he sat down amid cheers
for Fletcher and Houston .
The latter ge ntleman, who during
the first part of the meeting had been
in the audience, now came forward
and occupied the platform as a
speaker for over an hour and a half.
After he got properly warmed up to
hie subject he asked if there were any
ladies present, and being assured that
were not proceeded to deliver some
choice brands of Uoustoman language.
"A little while ago on tbis platform
Mayor Fletchei claimed tbat we
would not allow him to speak. And
why should we? We do not propose to
allow you to come on our platform
and dictate to us. I do not allow him
and W. A. Macdonald to get on MY
platform and hammer business men
unaccustomed to public speaking."
lie then made a few allusions to
lirs. Lallan and Arthur and W. A.
.Macdonald, and said that no man
could accuse him of having any hard
feelings towards an opponent. He had
no hard feelings toward G. Neelands
when he defeated him, in fact he was
1 ai her glad that Ncelands had won,
There was no man he had opposed
that he was ashamed of having done
so, or towards whom he felt anyhard
feeling. (A voice���What about Rod
Tolmie) "That is a question that
neither you or any man but Rod
Tolrain has any business with. 1
havo sometimes got into trouble
through drinking whiskey and sometimes got licked," He then went on
to make some more allusions to W,
A. Macdonald which that gentleman
vigoionsly resented.
Mr. Macdonald was invited to come
on the platform which he immediately did and proceeded to score Mr.
Houston for his opposition to the
starting of the Tramway company in
tho city and the way he had decried
and run down that institution since
its inception. "To Frank Fletcher a
great deal of the credit of having that

through him that today it is

even Mr. Kirkpatrick and Houston
had come around to tbe view advo-
oate.i by The Miner and held by all
the thinking people of the city that
before the putting in of a plnnt on
the Kootenay river was gone ahead
with that tne opinion ol <��� competent
electrical engineer should be obtained.
Mr. Macdonald was given a viry
attentive hearing aud loudly applauded and cheered us he closed.
Mr. Houston then went on with his
speech. Ilo accused his opponents of
"damming him from licll to break-
fust," and indulged in other free hand
objurgations and expressions. He
stated he would rather supoort a man
who was wio ig half the time as long
as he knew where he was. He closed
with a brief mention of the aldermen
running on his ticket, and explained
thc advantage tbat their inexperience
in civic affairs would bo. "The first
job J A. Kirkpatrick got in this
town was painting u building. He
painted it red. Tomorrow night,
after the election, his supporters will
paint tho town the 6��me color." With
this Mr. Houston terminated bis
tirade aud thc meeting adjourned.

candidate for Alderman, in the West
Ward (wbo has been absent from the
city during the campaign attending
the sittings of the Court of Appeal at
Victoria, and who would attend tu the
correction personally had he been able

would) that the electors should know
he is not, nor aie the firm of Elliot

any association with or business for
that company except in one matter,

A placard has been printed and
ported containing some important
iniorination for voters. While it is
possible for a voter having property
interests in tno wards to vote in each
ward fur aldermen, it is strictly
against the law to vote more than
once for mayor or school trustees. In
the last civic election there were a
large number of repeaters, and as this
will be watched for very strictly this
time it behooves all to remember that
only one vote for mayor is allowed by
any one individual.

THANKS TO MAYOR.
Wrong Impression Conveyed  by Electric Light Report.
At the meeting ol the city council
yesterday afternoon the only business
transacted was the consideration ol
the eity electrician's report, which
was published in thc Tribune before
being accepted by the council An ex
amination of it showed that tbe report
was correct as to figures, although
the way it wus arranged gave an
injorrcct impression on reading it.
When the flrst part of the report
was read there was a question raised
as to whether it was correct. The
portion in question was "estimating
the average number of paying lights
used at 4,500 for the yeai, eacb lamp
earned the city $4.82, and estimating
ten 10 0. p. lamps to the horse power
the earnings per horse power was
$48.20 per yeai. The cost ot operation
aud maintenance on a basis of 4,500
lamps in constant use was $1.80 per
each 16-e. p. whieh deduced from the
earnings per lamp leaves $2.92 as the
net earnings, INTEREST AND
SINKING FUND CHARGES ON
THE AMOUNT EXPENDED ON
CONSTRUCTION ACCOUNT NOT
BEING RECKONED."
It was explained as figured out,
with these charges subtracted from
the earning capacity of each lamp it
leaves about 81 a your per lamp when
all is collected. As there had been
considerable difficulty with the collections in many oases owing to the
poor light the amount collected was
very different from the earning
capacity of the lights on paper. Thus
tho statement that each lamp earned
the city $4.82 conveyed a wrong
repression.
The report of the sanitary iuspector
was also read and adopted.
A vote of thanks was unanimously
passed to Mayor Fletcher for his
services djriug the past year. Mayor
Fletcher responded in a few well
chosen words in wbich he thanked the
council [or the support it had given
bim during tbe past year. The
counoil then adjourned lor the last
time.

New Orleans, Jan. 15.���George I.
Kline of St. Louis, and R. L. West of
Cincinnati, were arrested across the
river this morning nccused of robbing
the trunk of Mrs. T. E. Manners, of
Chicago, of about 82.500 of jewelry.
Thoy are alleged to have represented
themselves last night as Manners, another guest at the St. Charles, paid
the bills and left with the baggage.
They crossed the river In a skiff and
were caught before the train came on
which they expected to leave. Later
in the dny Manners went over to
indentify their pioperty nnd Kline
accused him of being a thief under an
alias. As the whole affair had a suspicious appearance Manners was also
arreBted. The police believo he may
be Kern tho New York jewelry thief,
and Chief of Detective Titus oi New
York sent a telegram here which
strengthens the case. Maimers claims
that he is with his father in the pawn
brokerage business at Chicago and
that the jewelry taken was unredeemed.

How Much la Good Solid Flesh Worth
When a little tot that can hardly

morning there must be something
pleasing about the fond.
Her father says, -1 can safely say
that every pound oi drape-Nuts ' used
in my family nns been worth a nollar
in gold to me. To illustrate : About
live years ago 1 was ill and iiin down
from lSS founds to 180, After I got
so I could get about, my stomach
troubled me and I never cuuld get
above 12S pounds although I tried all
kinds of food.
Finally I was pnt on Grape-Nuts
and kept it np for eight Jiontbs. I
realized I was fleshing up again and
when weighed found I had Mcovered
my IM pounds. I have since been
able to hold my own. My stomach is
in flnc condition.
My family all eat Crape Nuts and
are all Improved in health. Even my
little tot who cnu hardly talk calls for
Grape-Nuts before she is out ol bed in

THROUGH UOUNDARY TRAINS
Good progress is being made with
filling the approaches at the Kobson
bridge, and it is expected that on
Monday freight trains will be passing
over it though it will not be used for
passenger tr'tllc for probably a week
more.
The opening of the bridge for passenger trafilo will tequiie a little
learrangement of the trains. What is
proposed though not yet finally determined upon, is that a through solid
train for Midway will leave Nelson in
Ihe morning, connecting at West
Robson with a train from Rossland
The Rossland train,after parting with
its Midway car, will come througn to
Nelson arriving at 11.80 From Castle-
gar in the morning a local train will
run to Rossland and return from there
to connect with the steamer for
Arrowhead. The train leaving Nelson at 0.40 in the evening wiil connect with the Arrowhead steamer then
continue on to Rossland, and the
through train fiom Midway will comn
direct through to Nelson, the evening
train from Nelson at Castlegar taking
the passengers from the lloundary
bound for Rossland to their destination. A fine station building at Castlegar is among the probable improvements. Thib arrangements of the
tialns will shorten the running time
between Nelson and Rossland and
possibly changes of a few minutes
will be mado in the time of the arrival and departure of trains, and
through freight to the Boundary and
Kossiand will reach its destination a
few hours sooner than heretofore.
