Ottawa, April 17.���The latest order

company is to the effect that in future no conductor shall place his arm
about the waist of a lady while she is

the car starts before she is seated and
she generally overbalances and falls
back and to prevent her falling the
conductor puts his hand around her
waist and supports her by touching
her on the back. This evidently has
been objected to by some of Ottawa's
fairest. The order has caused much
amazement among the conductors.

KIMBEKLEY JOTTINGS.
London, Apiil 17.���The South African blue book containing recent despatches from Sir Alfred Milner and
the other official correspondence, is
issued tonight. Sir Alfred Milner
wires, under date of Maich II, requesting permission to   return   home at an i,, .  .   ,,

J r , ever, resorted to
the purpose of resting.
Mr. Joseph Chamberlain, the colonial secretary, replied by granting this
request, but expressing the government's regret that it should he necessary for Sir Alfred to leave South Africa at the present time, quite recog-
ni-iug, however, his need for rest and
mentioning three months as a possible
period of absence.
In a despatch   dated   March   li,   Sir
Alfred reviewed the situation in South
Africa and says  he   had   hoped   some
definite  point   would   be   reached   at
which it might be possible   to sum up
that chapter of history containing the
war and  forecast   the   administrative
reconstruction which must succeed it.
"But I am foiced to  the  eonelaision
that   there   will be no such   dividing
line,"   continued Sir  Alfred   Milner,
"and have not the slightest   doubt   of
tile ultimate   result, but I forsee  that
tlie   work   will be slower, more difficult, more harrassing and more expensive than was at one   time   expected.
At any rate,   it is  idle  to wait much
longer   in the   hope of being  able  to
describe a clear   and   clean cut situation in view of the confused character
of the present   position.    It is   uo use
to deny that the  last   year   has  been
one of   retrogression.    Seven   months
ago this   colony   was perfectly   quiet
as   far   as   the     Orange   river.    The
southern half of the Orange  river colony   was   rapidly   settling  down and
oven   a   considerable   portion   of the
Transvaal,   notably   the   southeastern
districts, had definitely accepted Brit
Ish authority   and   rejoiced at the opportunity to return to orderly government,   and   the     pursuit    of   pence.
Steadily the scene has  completely   altered.     It  would   be   superfluous   to
dwell on the  increased   losses to  the
country   caused   by   the prolongation
of the struggle and by the form which
it   has   recently   assumed.    The   fact
that the enemy are now broken up into a   great   number of  small   panics
leading   in every  direction   and   our
troops are  similarly broken up, make
the area of actual   fighting, and, consequently, of destruction, much wider
than would be the case   in   a  conflict
between equal numbers opeiating in a

East Kootenay Camp Promises to He
Most Active This Summer,
Kimbeiley, B. C, April 17.���During
the past week the North Star mine
has been shipping regularly 00 tons
per diem, and expectations are that
it will do so for a considerable time
to 3ome. There are in ihe neighborhood of 80 men employed in and
around the mine.
James T. Dixon, the manager of
tlie Mount Sicker and B, C. Develop
ment Co,, returned from Ihe coast last
Saturday and it is uot yet known
what the intentions of tlie company
arc with regard to future work in this
vicinity.
It is rumored that the survey of the
railioad to the Sullivan will start as
soon as the surface of the ground will
permit. The snow is rapidly going so
It.ls hoped it will be commenced soon.
The New Uoldfields of B. C, are
commencing work on their bonded
properties on the 1st of May. Thest
properties adjoin the Sullivan property. Until the arrival of Mr. Lowles,
engineer for the company, Mi. El well
of. Kiiuberley will be in charge of the
work. Only a small force will be put
on at first, but later this will prob
ably be increased. The diamond drill
will he on the ground during May
with which a great deal of prospecting
worn will be done.
Charles Estmere has been doing
considerable development work on
his fractional claim adjoining the
Sullivan but on account of the enormous amount of surface water, the
work had to be suspended for a time.
A siding is about to be put in ut
Finch at Jones' mill in order to handle the enormous quantities of lumber
they are shipping this season.

General Superintendent Marpola, of
the Pacific division of the C. P. R.,
arrived in the city yesterday from the
west and continued his journey towards Montreal, says the Winnipeg
Free Press of Monday, He was joined
here by Manager Whyte and General
Superintendent Osborne, uho went
with hi in to Montreal in the piivate
car Champlain. At the depot the railway men were interviewed by Mr. A.
M. Newton, anil Mr. w. 11. Baker, the
executive agent, was also in conference with them. What tht trip to
headquarters means appears to be
something of a mystery. From what
these gentlemen said to a reporter of
the Free Press it looks as if there has
been a call to discuss matters of importance concerning the working of
the system throughout the west and
rumors of changes in the operating de
partment aie being circulated.
Mr. Marpole stated there was to be
a meeting at Mo-itreal on April 15th
of the leading officials of the road but
could not say what was to be under
discussion. Speaking of business in
the western coast province he said
prospects this season were exceedingly bright and a Rood year in the mining camps was also looksd for.
The Tribune also refers to rumors of
impending changes as follows:
"Manager Whyte, General Superintendent Osborne and General Superin
tendent Marpole, of the C. P. R.,
have all gone east, it is believed on
important business. While all the under officials seem to agree that there
are some important official changes in
contemplation, nothing definite in
this connection can be learned. Su-.
perintendent James went east a few
days ago, ostensibly to pay a visit to
his wife's mother in Ottawa, but it is
now said that he isto meet in Montreal with the rest of the officials. It
Is rumored that Mr. James was offered
an important position on the C. N.
R., and being one of the best superior
tendents the C. P. R. has ever had,
the company is naturally anxious to
retain him.
"Theie Is no first vice-president oi
the C. P. R. at present, anil another
rumor is that Mi. I). MeNichol will
be appointed to that position, and
that Manager Whyte of this eity will
succoed to the position of second vice-
president and general manager, which
Mr, MeNichol at present holds. Iu
the shuttle to provide Mr. Whyte"s
successor, it is probable that Messrs.
Oborne and James would be given promotion. "
GROWING   SERIOUS.
Pulp Mill Operatives' Strike   Assumes
More Serious Aspect.
(SPECIAL TO THIS MINKIl.)
Grand mere, April 17.���The strike of
operatives in the pulp mill here looks
serious. The officers if the Lauren-
tide Pulp Co , Messrs. McGibbon and
Alger, came by special train from
Montreal and bad a long conference
with the workmen but it had no
effect. In all there are eight hundred
employees on strike.
The eity fathers determined last
night to authorize uo further expenditures in the direction of street or
other impiovements until sufficient
time has elapsed to demonstrate clearly where the municipality is to stand
with regard to its finarcial resources.
The public works now authorized
and under way will not be completed
in less than from' six weeks to two
months. The aggregate cost of those
with the outlays previously made during the.present regime almost exhaust
the estimated revenue for the year,
leaving only what is regarded as a
safe margin on the right side to meet
unforseeu charges such ub quarantine
and other expenses that crop np from
time to time and that cannot be taken
into consideration when the annual
estimates are prepared at the first of
the year. In taking this step the council will have the support of citizens
generally, the general feeling being
that over drafts are to be avoided as
the plague unless circumstances absolutely ncessitate and this does not appear to be the case at the present
time. Later it may eventuate that
funds are available for necessary
works, but in the meantime the aldermen are content to let things stand.
No work 'at present under way or
authorized will be inf.rfprml __,_-
tlius ensuring to the city employees
well on to two months work.
The matter came up in connection
with the report of the board of works,
which recommended a series of desirable improvements in the way of
sidewalks and giading, incidentally
recommending the removal of overhead
verandahs and signs on Baker street.
The teport was being taken up section by section, when Alderman Selous requested permission to state a
few facts in regard to the city's finances. He then laid before the council figures indicating that it was time
to take stock of the entire financial
situation and ascertain exactly what
resources the council had to depend
upon before authorizing new work.
In any event, he was careful to point
out, no necessary work would be delayed as the operations already authorized would lequire a numbei of
weeks for their completion. Alderman Hamilton, chairman of finance,
coincided and Mayor Fletcher also
joined in Aldeimaii Selous' suggestion, adducing in the course of his re
marks some decidedly interesting information with legard to the recent
debenture issue. The council he said,
had had a good lesson of the danger
of going beyond their revenue. Last
year's administration had incurred a
heavy over draft, and by its general
methods had left matters in such a
condition that this year's council
must go slow. As a result of the over
drafts the present council was facing
the necessity of providing for 818,(J00
for which they and the city was not
legally responsible. This question of
over drafts by last year's administration was wholly responsible lor the
failure to dispose of the last debenture
issue :ind now it was necessary to
secure a bill from the legislature to
legalize the issue. Thu council had
uo desire to repudiate the obligations
Incurred by the the previous administration but if it came to trouble this
year's council was notjliable for the
amount. However the moucy had
been expended for the benelit of the
city and as citizens it was for the
council to square matter'. In view of
these facts the council would appreci
ate the necessity of going slow in the
matter of expenditures at the ptescnt
lime.
It was resolved to shelve the entire
report for a mouth, at the end of
which time the council will have a
thorough understauding of what ifl required and of the means available to
pioceed with.
The council, however, was not content to allow the overhead verandahs

BARCLAY    SOUND   CHOSEN    AS A
LANDING PLACE FOR PACIFIC
CABLE.
LAND    HAS     BEEN    PURCHASED
AND NEW TOWN   WILL BE
BUILT.
(SPECIAL TO THE MI MO II.)
Victoria, B. C., April 17.���A site
for the terminus of the Pacific cable
has been selected on Barclay sound.
So convinced was Peak, engineer in
charge, of the choice of location in
superiority was Kelp Bay, six miles
up from the entrance of Barclay
Sound, that the day after the return
of the Quadra to Victoria he purchased a hundred acres, at. a moda�����*��
price, the owners being unaware of
the object. Ue_estimates it will take
8100 per acre to clear, as it is lightly
wooded. The work of construction on
cottages for forty people, grading
streets, draining, clearing land, etc.,
will start at once. Water supply for
the new town will be taken from a
lake above the site in the Pelhain
mountains. Kelp Bay has about
twelve fathoms of water close to
shore, and the harbor, though small,
is ample to accommodate war vessels,
which if the cable were threatened,
conld.be stationed there. The harbor
is also perfectly land locked, being
protected by a number of islands
which extend aeioss the entrance.
Peak expects to be back from Australia in August to superintend the
work. Each cottage will havo nn ample supply of land for gardening purposes.
II. M. S. Egerla has gone on another survey of British Columbian
waters. The survey was completed
last year as far as Negei island, for-
uierly known as Galiano, changed In-
geological survey authorities because
of another island bearing a similar
name. They hope to finish the survey
this year as far as Blinkisop Bay,
west of Helmckeii island, Broughlon
straits. The work will take most of
tho remainder of the year.
(SPECIAL TO THE  MIM01I.)
Ottawa, April 17.���It is now fifty
years or more since the international
boundary between this country and
the United States from Lake Superior
to the Atlantic was marked out. Ne-
goliatious have been proceeding be
tweet] the governments of Canada and
the United States in view of a possible
disappearance of the boundary marks,
an understanding having been arrived
at the result of which will be that
the two countries will proceed this
coming summer to review the work
that was done in pait, not for the
purpose of fixing any new boundary
line but for the purpose of preserving
the location of the forty-ninth parallel. The pressing necessity at the
present time is to define accurately
the boundary line between Canada and
t'.ie United States in the mineral regions of British Columbia. It has
come to light that doubt has aiisen In
some eases of mineral claims as to
which side of the boundary they are located ou and immediate work this sum
mer will be directed towards preserving and renewing the boundary line
in Southern Britisli Columbia. It is
the intention of the department o* the
interior to send out parties this summer for that purpose.
,au auc u.jeinng ot IDS nioriiing session of the house of commons quite a
number of private bills were put
through their final stages. The bills
passed included an act respecting
tho Columbia at Kootenay Railway av
Navigation Co., Introduced by Mr.
Gal.iher; and an act to incorporate
the Kootenay & Arrowhead railway
��� Mr. Galliher. In connection with
the bill incorporating the Kootenay at
Arrowhead railway company, Mr. T.
O. Davis of Saskatchewan objected
to the railway company being given
power to operate a smelter. He
thought tbat legislation was daogei-
ous as it might give the railway a
monopoly of smelting. Ilowevei the
bill Wais passed without any amend
ment. Discussion on the transportation question was resumed.

For the first time in the history of
Nelson the annual conference of the
ministers of the Methodist church in
Hritish Columbia will be held in this
city. The assembly is the highest tribunal of the denomination in the west
and its pioceedings affect the policy
of the churches from Atlin in the
north to the international boundary
line on the south. The proceedings
will be of more than usual interest.
If all the clergymen and laymen en-
title.l to participate in the deliberations of the conference were to come,
the aggregate would be 125, but as a
number of these, particularly those
engaged in missionary work in the
north and inland districts, would require to travel 1,000 miles or more
at a heavy oultay ol time and oash, it
is probable that uot more than 75 delegates will be piesent. Among the
distinguished visitors will be Rev.
Dr. Carman, who is at the head of the
Canadian Methodist church as general superintendent. He is an eloquent clcigymini and an ecclesiastical
diplomat of some note. Goro Kaburn-
gi, B. A., B. Sc, a Japanese who has
done much to advance the spread of
Methodism among his countrymen
will also be here.    It   is possible thac

out the west will also be present.
Rev. E. S. Howe, of the Metropolitan
church, Victoria, is expected to address working men during the conference, and something of unusual interest may be anticipated, as Mr. Rowe
won his spurs in the east by stoutly
championing tlie cause of G. T. R.
strikers. In addition to these a number of men will he present who have
seen the growth of the province for
many years. The laymen who aro
delegates include prominent business
men from all the coast aud mainland
cities,
Tlie conference proper opens on tlie
morning of May B, but prior to this
the members of the stationing committee will arrive in the city and hold
their Brst conferences at the Methodist church ou the preceding Tuesday
ami Wednesday. At noon on Thursday, the conference having been convened, the stationing committee will
present the first draft of its repoit

A CRISIS.
It must be apparent lo all who have
been following witli any attention the
trend uf political events in this province fin the past few weeks that a
crisis has been reached whicli may result 111 the disruption uf the Dunsmuir
government. The stauuehest Blipport-
erS ��� ,F th" present administration cannot lull view the situation with
grave alarm. It is but the bald tiuth
to say thai tlie government has alienated tlie support of the great majority
of tlie electors by its shilly-shally
policy in dealing witli the larger pub
lie questions. It has taken a position
in respect to the construction of the
Coast-Kootenay rtilway which cannot
fail lo result in disaster to itself sooner 01 later. It has ignored popular
opinion entirely; and no government
can do that very long witli Impunity.
After having announced in the speech
from the throne that it was the Intention to grant tlie necessary aid for
the construction of the Coast-Kootenay railway, and raising the hopes of
the people of the districts   which   are
laatlafe' ���' ~" "��������� -��-������--��-*��� Hnh facilities   which   would be afforded   bv
l,lie bui.lding of that line, it startled
the conntry by a glaring attempt to
assassinate that project and delay the
construction of the road for an indefinite period. As soon as the government's perfidy was discovered, what
happened? Protest after protest went
up from every portion of the country
���protests so vigorous and emphatic as
to leave no doubt in tlie minds of the
people's representatives as to what
course they must follow if they value
their political heads. Thus the position of the government is rendered a
very critical one. But two courses remain open to it���it must retreat from
its untenable position or meet immediate and overwhelming Defeat. The
situation is hardly one which will
permit of much political jugglery be
ing practiced successfully iu an attempt to extricate itself from its pitiable plight. Public opinion has been
outraged to too great a degree to render expedient further trifling. The
people of this province have witnessed
the most disgiace.nl attempt ever
made in the history of the country to
place obstacles in the way of the consummation of a project which no man
with aoy sense ol decency can deny is
in the interest of tho country. This
is a time for plain speech. At the
bidding of its masters the government
consented to he a paity to a scheme
which aims at the perpetrating of as
foul a political crime as was evei undertaken by a corrupt administration
in the history of Canada. Under the
guise of patriotism, pleading u desire
to protect the people's inteiest, it jailed for tinders for the construction of
tlie road in question upon such terms
iis would render it impossible for any
responsible company to make a con-
tiact with the government. Having
done so it thought the dirty job completed���but it has discovered its mistake. It has discovered that the peo
���pie have seen through the plot, and
it is now face lo face with a situation
which may very well keep it awake
niehts in scheming to extricate Itself
from the Infamous position it took in
order to further its own selfish ends.
The Dunsmuir government thought it
Would knife the Coast-Kootenay project-it will probably discover that it
has cut its own throat,
{.WW  COAL   FIELDS,
The report furnisle.l by Mr. ,T. Mc
Evoy of the geological department on
the Crow's Nest loal fields is very interesting and justifies the earlier statements as to the exceptionally great value of the remarkable coal deposits in
that section. It is the intention of the
Ottawa government as soon as the
weather permits to send out a party
to select the 80,000 acres of coal lands
which were allotted to the government
four years ago. Last summer a topographical survey anil a geological exploration of the lands were made by
parties under the direction of Messrs--.
Wheeler and McEvoy respectively.
When winter set in the two parties returned to (Ittawa. and in the months
that have intervened they have been
engaged ill preparing plans and reports. Very accurate plans of the coal
tields have been drawn, showing the
coal oiiU'ruppiiigs and other features
of value. The patty to be sent out
this spring to select the lands will blunder the direction of Mr. McEvoy,
and will he accompanied by some gentlemen having a practical knowledge
of coal mining. No regulations,will
be made for the disposition of any of
the government's coal lauds till the
selection has been made and the lands
deeded to the crown. Not until the
government has made its choice will
the C. 1'. K. be free to select the :i,��40
acres to which under the agreement of
18U7 it became entitled. The ('. P.
R. hod pressed for the light to pick
its sbaie of the lands immediately,
which meant that the 1 idlest area
would have fallen to its lot. The
government, however, would not consent to this, and the company must
therefore be content to take what is
left after the government gets through.
But even this is a substantial concession, seeing that under the former
agreement the companv would have
had to wait six years longer before it
could make anv choice of lands.

CURRENT COMMENT
British Columbia is known abroad
chiefly by its mining industry, and I
cannot say. judging ftotn the people I
met, that the investing public consider it as inviting a field as one would
expect tbey would, considering its
great natural resources. They seem
lo have the idea that there is an extraordinary amount of uncertainty attending investments here, in which
legislation plays no small part. Apart
possibly fiom placer mining laws, it
seems to mc to be wisdom on the part
of uui legislature to leave, untouched
the existing laws, and give investors
to understand that we have at last approached stability and permanence in
this class of legislation.
It would be exceedingly unwise to
Increase taxation of the mining industry in any form, and particularly as 1
understand has been suggested, vi/...
too increase the tax on the claim surface Such a tax would simply mean
that people of moderate means, feeling injured and disgusted, would
abandon thei] claims and all interest
in the country. These represent that
large class whose spirited efforts are
ut the bottom of success in every
country.���The Empire (London I.

COLONIAL CONTINGENTS.
Lord Roberts' report on the conduct
of the South African campaign makes
very interesting reading. Canada
makes a gcod showing and comes in
for warm piaisc at the bands of the
veteran commander. An official return just issued shows the numerical
strength of the colonial contingents
that went over tlie sea to aid Britain
in Soutli Africa. The number of
ofticeis and men sent by each colony
was as follows:
Canada 135 .' 024
New South  Wales    187 2,803
Victoria   81 1,348
Queensland  00 1,058
South Australia  Ill 543
West   Australia  . 24 4511
Tasmania  14 :.'8s
New   Zealand  82 1,705
Total 573 10,-l'.l
In addition to the foregoing there
was a corps of Imperial Bushmen,
consisting of 35 officers and 1,050 men,
and a composite regiment of 10 officers
and 240 men. These, in the absence
of information cannot be classed under the separate colonies to which
they belong, but their inclusion with
the other contingents would swell the
total colonial force to 1138 officers and
12,100 men.' The same leturn states
the nunibei of colonial officers and
men serving in South Africa on March
12 last to have been as follows:
Officers.        Men.
Canada     3 114
New Soutli Wales   38 750
Victoria  26      �� 000
Queensland  80 5011
South Australia  0 300
West Australia  10 300
Tasmania  0 200
New   Zealand  03 1,129
Total 181 4,053
Congratulations to Lieut. ,1, E.
Leckle for mention for meritorious
service by Lord Roberts.
All signs indicate that the remaining portion of the session of the legislature will be hot and lively.
Smith Curtis   Is desirous of  glvin
the government   a   taste   of   its  own
medicine.     The   dose will prove very
unpalatable.
Capt. Troup paid a very neat compliment to Nelson at the banquet
tendered him on Tin: day evening.
Mc regretted, he said, leaving Nelson,
as it was a "good place to tie up to."
True, he was going to more populous
districts but lie liked the vim and go
of Kootenay.
Col. Prior has made a very commendable effort to induce the government
to udopt a poli.y which would give
contracts for government work In British Columbia to local men. Mr. Tarte
took an opposite view, of course.
Quebec's maw is not yet Stuffed to the
choking point.
Sir Alfred Milner is leaving Soulli
Africa for England, in order, so It is
said, to recuperate his health, lie is
taking a holiday at a most Inopportune
time and it would not be at all surprising to learn that the incident has
some political significance other than
appeals 011 the surface.
DOES IT PAY TO  BUY CHEAP?
A cheap remedy for coughs and colds
is all right, but you want something
that will relieve and cure the more
severe and dangerous results of throat
aud lung troubles What shall you
do? (lo to a warmer and more regular climate? Yes, if possible: if not
possible for you, then in either case
take the only remedy that has been
introduced in all civilized countries
with success in severe throat and lung
troubles. "Boschee's German Syrup."
It not only heals and stimulates the
tissues to destroy the germ disease,
but allays inflammation, causes easy
expectoration, gives a good night's
rest, and cures the patient. Try one
bottle. Recommended many years by
all druggists in the world. For sale

(SPECIAL TO THE MINEll.)
Victoria, B, C, April IT.���The public school hill passed its final reading
in the legislature today. The feature
of the afternoon was the holt of Mc-
Phillips, junior member from Victoria
eity, and a supporter of the government, lie bitterly attacked the resolution submitted by tbe attorney-
general providing that the government
have complete control of freight and
passenger rates on railways to whioh
charters may be granted this session
notwithstanding tbat tliey may obtain
Dominion abutters and thus pass
from provincial control He assailed
the lesolntioii as being a concession to
popular clamor which would be useless, as it would be certain to be disallowed by the Dominion government.
He finally succeeded in having the
matter laid over.
The government caucus is to be
held tonight and a night session
therefore not likely. Pooley of Esquimau is ill with grippe and unable
to attend the house.
SAYS HE  WAS TORTURED.
'I suffered such pain from coins I
could hardly walk," writes II. Robinson, Hillsborough, Ills., "but llnck-
len's Arnica Salve completely cured
them." Acts like magic on sprains
bruises, cuts, sores, scalds, burns,
boils, ulcers. Peifect healer of skin
diseases and piles. Cure guaranteed
by Canada Drug at Book Co.

IT SLUGS HARD.
Coffee a Sure and Powerful Bruiser.
Lei your coffee slave be denied his
grog at its appointed time! Headache
���sick stomach���fatigue like, unto
death, 1 know it all in myself, and
have seen it in others. Strange that
thinking, reasoning beings will persist in ils use." says Chas. Woirall of
Topeka,  Kansas.
lie says further that he did not begin drinking coil'ee until after be was
twenty years old, and th.t slowly it
began to poison him and alTect his
hearing through his nervous system.
He would quit coffee and the conditions would slowly disappear, but
"one cold morning the smell of my
wife's coffee was too much for me and
I took a cup. Soon 1 was drinking
my regular allowance, tearing down
brain and nerves by the daily dose of
the nefarious concoction.
Later I found my breath coming
bard and frequent fits of nausea, and
then 1 was taken down with bilious
fever.
Common sense ca'ne to me and I
quit coffee and went back to Postum.
1 at once began to gain and have bad
no returns of my billions symptoms,
headache, dizziness, or vertigo.
I now have health, blight thoughts,
and added weight, where before
there was invalidism, tbe blues, and
a skeleton like condition of   the body.
Jt would be hard to tell how highly
1 value Postum.
My brother, Prof. Harvey Worral,
quit coffee because of its effect on his
health and uses Postum Food Coffee.
He could not stand the nervous strain
while using coffee, but keeps well on
Postum.
Miss Fantz I know personally has
been incapable of doing a day's work
while she was using colfee. She quit
it and took up Postum and is now
well and has perfectly steady nerves.''

Tlie eity couneil was hard on committee reports last night, that of Ihe
board of works being shelved for a
month and that of the tire, water and
light committee being cut up badly in
the course of its eonsideiation. The
struggle between the city electric
lighting department and the Kootena>
Lake Telephone company reached an-
ither stage antl the company scored a
few points. As a result of the meeting the company has orders to remove
their wires fiom eity poles on aloHe-
pliine street within four months and
the balance of the lines are not likely
to be   disturbed   for   tbe, present   at
1st. Tbe committee's report was as
follows:
(1) With regard to your committee's report of the .."ith March as to
the use of the city's electiic light
poles by the Kootenay Lake Telephone
company, the committee adheres to
the recommndation then made with
the exception that tlie company be allowed four months within which to
remove their wires aud also that the
company be required to pay tbe rental
agreed upon for the time they used
the poles. (:.'.) That a hydrant be
placed near the Nelson Saw at Planing Mills at a point which may be
considered the most suitable. (3.)
The committee also recommend that
tbe request of W. E. Coles for water
service for his house on lot 18, block
2$, Addition A., Innes stieet, be
granted and Ihe necessary connection
made. (4.) That connection with the
eity water supply be required for all
premises within the city limits where
mains are laid. (.1.) The committee
have gone into the methods of charges
for electric lights and recommend the
adoption of meters as early as possible.
Alderman Hamilton undertook to
present to the council the aspect of
the telephone wire question as it appealed to the citizens intere.ted. He
agreed that the poles on Josephine
street and pi-obably at some other
points were too heavily laden and tbat
ib would be wise to compel the company to erect their own poles under
such circumstances. At other points
only from one to three wires were
strung on the city poles and these
wires were to private residences where
citizens bad secured Bervices that
could not possibly have been given
had the company to erect its own
poles. To force the telephone people
to take the wires from poles on tbe
latter class of lines would only work
a hardship to citizens who found the
'phones a very great convenience
Mayor Fletcher also drew attention
to the fact that the company was giving a service in the city which could
not possibly be afforded if new pols
lines were necessary wherever a new
'phone was installed. The service
was a public convenience and the aldermen should bear in mind that in
pressing tho telephone company they
also wrought a hardship on many citizens who found the instruments a
very great convenience.
It was decided to refer back clause
one of the report and later a resolution was passed instructing the company to provide its own pole line on
Josephine street.
W. E. Coles' application for watei
service was knocked out. It was
pointed out that the granting of the
request necessitated S400 worth of
work which tlie city was not in a position to expend for one seivice bringing iu a total revenue of SIS per annum.
The council decided that it was not
an opportune time to go in foi electric light meters, as according to the
estimate of Mayor Fletcher meters
for the city would necessitate an expenditure of $0,000 and in his opinion
the advisability of the system was
not by any means certain.
With these chnges the report was
adopted.
On behalf of the fire wardens, Ald-
eiman Selous leported that these officials bad made an inspection of the
opera house and had concluded to recommend to council that the owners of
the building be notified that no more
performances could be given until the
license was paid and arrangements
made for the egresBof audiences to the
satisfaction of the council. This was
carried after some discussion in the
course of which it was elicited that
the opera house people were prepared
to meet the views of the council.
