Nelson,   British Columbia, Thorsday,  October 31, 1901
Eleventh  Year
City Council Again Talk Over
the Electric   Light
Two Counter   Propositions
Made.-No Conclusion
At the meeting  of the city counoil
lust night the only subject to be dealt
Lvfith w��s the power by-law.    A letter
f k��b read  from   tho   Nelson   Saw   &
I planing Mills stating that tbey   were
prepared to furnish the   city with   75
horse poiver, at   the   late of  85   per
mouth per horsepower.     In regard to
this the mayor said  that the quantity
would not he sufficient and to make it
i available it   would   be  necessary for
the oity  to   put in a   dynamo whioh
wonld cost  at least $e,000  and   take
two months to  Instal.     A   letter was
road from tlio   gus  company   offering
to supply the city witb a   gas   engine
Kith a espneity of 200 horsepower, de-
||T>red in Nelson for   $8,850,   or   two
engines with a   capacity of 100 horse
powsr eneh for (0,060.    A third communication was from Mr. Crofts offering to supply n Corliss   steam   engine
and giving the prioes  of  the  various
I parts also  as   to   what   the   frolgbt
wonld    cost,   the     whole    totalling
110,570, delivery to   be   made   within
four months.
Mayor Flotc.hor said that the matter
of a steam plant bud been figured out
and it would cost $20,000 before It
anulil bo installed. Some figuring was
tlun iioiin as to the cost of power from
tho steam engine after it bad been put
Mayor Fletoher said ho thought it
would, pay the council to have n
hydraulic enginoer to examine the
Liite and estimate -what the cost of
'putting iu ii plant nt tho falls nn the
Kootenay. Nearly every undertaking
that was tried uy municipalities had
a fashion of costing a good deal mine
than was estimated. The flume for
instance troiu Whitewater and oost
|U,500 when it had been estimated
that It would only ccst 87,750.
Mr. MoOulloob, tbe city engineer,
who was present, insisted on making
an cxplanatu-n in regard to this remark of the mayor. The committee
having charge of the matter had asked
nun to make a report on a Saturday
afternoon in time for the council
meeting on Monday. lie had only one
day to make the report and as there
was six feot of snow on the ground in
Iho valley It had been impossible to
���Hake more than the roughest kind of
estimate, which he had stated at
the time. It was impossible to figure
out how much rock would te encountered, under the ciioumstances.
Mayor Fletcher Bald he had not intended the remark as any reflection on
Mr. McCuiloch, ho , understood the
olrcumtances referred to and knew
'hat Mr. McCuiloch had not been responsible in the matter. lie also said
'hat the position roughly was that
��ny scheme looking to the Installation
present number uf lights supplied was
4, Oils.
, Then followed a long discussion,
i participated In by the mayor and all
of the councilmen, during whioh it
was stated that 100 additional horse
power was needed to supplement the
city plant when there wns a full head
of water and 150 more horse power
when there ia a cold snap and the
water freezes as in January last.
During the discussion Alderman
Selous asked James McPhee, superintendent of the oity electric light plant
if the city could use 150 horse power
in addition to that supplied by the
city plant and the latter replied that
he thought it could be used to advantage.
On motion of Alderman Gillette,
seconded by Alderman Hamilton, the
council went into committee of the
wlmle to consider the electric light
by-law. ' Alderman Seloua explained
the ordinance, which was to be considered. It was to embody a proposition
submitted by L. A. Campbell, manager
of the West Kootenay Power & Light
company, to furnish electro energy to
the oity. The rate was to be 850 per
horse power per year and the minimum quantity to be taken was 150
horse power and the maximum 200
horse power.
Mr. Oillette thought the minimum
quantity should be fixed at 125 instead
of 150 horse power and Aldermen
Peterson and Hamilton favored 150
hoise power for the reason that they
were certain Mr. Campbell would not
accept a contract in which any less
quantity was nominated that 150 horse
power and tbey thought it impolitic
to submit a lesa quantity in the bylaw to the people as even if the late
pavers voted for it it would not be
accepted by the West Kootenay Co.
Alderman Irving considered the
price exorbitant and said he would
uot vote for such a proposition and
Mi. Hamilton sitiil he din not like the
idea of being held up by tho West
Kootenay company.
Mayor Fletcher ' said personally he
did not care a continental whether the
proposition was accepted or not, but
there wore a number of people who
wanted lights. He thought the proposition should be submitted to the
people nnd thoy wonld hnve the responsibility   of auaupting or rejecting
The debate waa ended on this point
by tbe motion made by Mr. Gillette
prevailing and the minimum amount
was put into the by-law at 125 horse
power. The committee rose and reported progress on the by-law   to  the
On motion of Alderman Selous,
seconded by Aldeiman Patterson, the
mayor was instiuctcd to interview
Mr. Campbell to learn if he would be
willing to have the minimum quantity out down to 125 horse power, the
result of the conference to be reported
to the next meeting. Adjourned till
Monday, November 4th.

the "Spatohcocked" dispatch of Sir
Reuvers Buller to General Sir George

coppers and destroy all your ammunition. You will then make the best
terms you can with tbe Boers after I
have fortified myself on the Tugela.

Washington,   Oot.     30,���The    long
ordeal   to  which Admiral Schley has
been subjected  since   Monday   morning ended   this   afternoon   when  his
cross-examination was concluded and
he   was allowed to leave the  witness
stand.       When   the    judge  advocate
finished the cross-examination shortly
after 3 o'clock the   court   propounded
to the admiral 34   questions  prepared
by tho members of the court.       Those
questions   touched many points of the
campaign of the flying squadron,   but
mainly centered  about the diilleultios
encountered In coaling and the reasons
for  the   retrograde   movement.     Not
one   of   them related to the bntt'o of
Santiago.   The judge advooate's cross-
examination   todny oovered the retrograde movement, the roconnaisanoe of
May   31st,   the  loop of the Brooklyn,
and   the   alleged colloquy with Lieutenant Hodgson about the Texas.   One
of most interesting foaturesfjof tbe day
was the development  of  the fact that
the   report   of   the battle written   by
Admiral Schley on July 0th, 181)8, was
not the original report    The original
report  never   bus been published and
in accordance with a previous decision
the court today declined to allow It to
go Into the   record.     Admiral Schley
was allowed to explain, however, that
Admiral   Sampson declined   to receive
the first report because It did not men*
t ion the presence of the New York. "I
felt   that   tbe victory at that  time,"
said   Admiral   Schley, In  explaining
the matter, " was big  enough   for all
and I made this ohange out of   goner
osity and because I knew  if the New
York   had   been   present  she   wonld
have done as good   work   aa  anybody
New York, Oct. 30.���As Henri Four-
nier was crossing   the   tracks   of  the
Long Island railway near Westbury in
an   automobile   in   which   five  other
men were seated,   the   machine   came
into collision   with a locomotive  and
disastrous results  followed.     All   six
men   were   hurt and the machine demolished.     Those injured were N. B.
Knile.ilon, general agent of   tbe   passenger department of the Long Island
railway, badly out about the bead and
face   and compound   fracture   of one
leg; A. C. Bathelder.of the New York

Mr. Fournier said the party was on
its way home to New York when the
accident occurred, having been out all
day in company with W. K. Vander-
bilt, Jr., in his machine, looking for
a good road on which it was Four-
nier's intention to try for a mile
record tomorrow. "I bad just renohed
the crossing," he said, "and the front
wheels of ray machine weie just
touching the rail when the locomotive
loomed up and I realized that an
accident was inevitable. Not having
time to tevcrse the power, I gave the .
handle a quick turn which moved
the front wheels to tbe light and then
tho crash came."
Tbe locomotive struck the machine
two or three inches behind the left
front wheel throwing it around so
tnat the rear of the an'o was brought
against tbe locomotive. Tbe first
thing that 1 remember was somebody
calling and asking me if I were dead.
I think I was unconscious for about a
minute. The machine was completely
demolished. It was not a racing
machine It was only ten horse
power, very heavy and was built to
hold six persons. I refused $0,000
three days ago foi it."
Tbere is bo flagman at the crossing,
which is hidden hv buildings, but an
automatic bell   is supposed   to   ring,
on  the   appioach   of   a   train.     The
members   of auto party say it did not
ring. The railroad people nlaiir. otherwise.    Fournier   who   was   handling

The May and Jennie, one of the
mines of the Nelson division, close
to this citv, has developed a good
sized shoot of ore of a pay grade,nnd
in a few days it will join tbe list of
produoing mines and it will, it is
said, contine to market its ores indefinitely. This is an important incident,
as it is a result in which considerable
money,-energy and time has been expended to attain. The success in the
May and Jennie is a concrete fact
which oau be pointed to to prove that
the section in the vicinity of this city
has many other ledges which will
yield profitable results if they are but
opened up,and each new result of this
kind is an enuouagement to others to
invest their money in ventures of the
Baine nature. Men are largely imitative
and mining men aie specially so, and
there may be looked for within a
short time an increased aotivity in the
vicinity of tbe May and Jennie and as
a lesult of the success several othel
mines may be developed on contiguous ground. It is by tbe opening of
a shipping mine here and another
there and the increase in the output
of ore that the forward progress of
the mining industry may be marked
and that it is growing steadily is
obvious to all who keep oven in pre-
functory touch with passing events.
Tbat tbis progress will go steadily on
in the future now seems to be assured.
We must, however avoid as much us
possible tbe mistakes of the past.
The mining interests should be protected as much as possible and laws
to foster it should be enacted. Inducements should be held out and encouragement given to foreign capital to
invest money here whether it be in
mining, manufacturing or in railroads. There should be less friction
and biokering between capital and
labor and those wbo are prone to
create trouble should be frowned
down and not allowed to occupy the
middle of the public stage aa much as
they do. Surely there has been sufficient tronble during tbe past three
years to satisfy even the most belligerent. Capital and labor should try
pulling together for awhile Instead of
in contrary directions. Tbey have
quarrelled so much tbat tbe onlooker,
who is often hurt by reason Of tbeir
strife, is inclined to say "A plague on
both your bouses." People did
not come to the province for the purpose of putting in the majority of
tbeir time watching strife and waiting for better times after it is over,
bnt rather to better tbeir condition
and to do tbls by developing the great
material resources with which tbey
are surrounded. Let all get into the
traces and let the cry be from now on
"More work and less strife," aod of
this Ib followed out there will in a
short time be developed one of tbe
greatest of mining regions, filled
with a prosperous, bappy and contented people. Then it will be no uncommon occurrence to chronicled
much more frequently than at present
events like that contained in the announcement tbat the Mav and Jennie
is to begin shipments of ore.
Tbe Australian confederation 1b
passing through the oarlier portion of
the formative period, and itsexpcii-
euce is similar iu some respects to
that which attained in Canada when
the several provinces were being
welded into the Iloirunion of Canada.
In order to make a harmonious whole
concessions must be made by tbe different colonies and tbat is where tbe
trouble comes in at present. The
colonies were brought together
through national interests and muoh
wisdom must ue exercised to harmonize matters. Free trade between the
parties to the federal compact is admitted by all to be a necessity. It was
found, too, alter the first popular
election that those in the majority
favored a moderate tsrlfl along the
lines of protection of borne industries,
just the same as Canada has learned
that a similar policy is beneficial to
her best interests.
The government measure, Introduced by Mr.Kingston, prsvides for a
special and an ad valorem duty on a
number of articles. It is intended by
this lo raise a revenue of $15,000,600,
and of this  sum   It   is Intended   that
810,500.000 shall be raised on stimulants. In order to encourage the infant industries of tbe commonwealth,
and eapeeia'ly those of iron and steel,
a bonus of $3 per ton is to be paid on
pig iron made from Australian ore
and 82 on pig iron made from imported ore and on steel ingots, containing
naif Anstralian ore, 83. It is provided that these bonuses shall begin
on July 1,1903, and shall be paid only
to plants producing 100,000 tons annually. On silk and woollen fabrics an
ad valorem duty of 25 per cent.and on
cotton and linen 15 per cent, will be
imposed. Sugar will be taxed 830 per
ton and agricultural implements 15
per cent.
i Tbe protectionists and free traders
are very nearly evenly balanced and
tbe government tariff bill will probably be considerably amended before
it is finally adopted as the interests of
the different sections will have to be
considered, for Australia is a large
country and what will be of benefit to
cue portion will hurt tho other. In
oruer to reconcile these conflicting interests a give and take policy will
have to bo adopted and sacrifices
made for the general good. The orob-
lems to be solved are complex and
will call for statesmanship, patience
and toleration, but in tbe end there is
no donbt a tariff bill will be adopted
tbat will meet the requirements of tbe
situation. Under consolidation, with
free trade between tbe different portions ot tbe confederation Australia
should suon have a greater prosperity
than ever before.
The oity authorities have issued
notices to the owners of several of the
larger buildings directing them to put
up fire escapes. This is a step in
tbe right direction as it is only by
conveniences of tbis kind that lives
can be saved in cases of sudden and
quick spreading conllagrations. At
the recent fire in Philadelphia a number lost their lives because they did
not s'eni to know wbeie the fire
escapes were located, others became so
panic stricken tbat tbey were unable
to locate them and so perished miserably, whereas had they been shown
where tbey were and drilled a little
so that they would have known exactly what to have done in case of an
emergency they could easily have
escaped by the means whicb had been
provided. Tbe trouble in a sudden
emergency is that people lose tbeir
beads. This was the case largely
with the passengers on the ill-fated
Islander. Though there were life
preservers in each stateroom only
a few of the passengers put them on
and some, who took them from the
racks, did not know bow to pnt them
on. Besides the crew bad difficulty in
launching the boats, because they bad
not all been drilled in tbe work. In
time eveiy guest in a hotel will be
shown where the fire escapes are.
Occupants of a tall building should
be acquainted with the location of
the escapes and the best means of
reaching them. On every steamer tbe
passengers and crew, before the vessel
leaves tbo harbor, should have at least
oue drill in launching tbe boats and
eaoh passenger and member of tbe
crew should be assigned to a ocrtain
boat. They should also be shown how
to fssten on life preservers. Then in
a oase of emergency theie would be
more confidence, prompter action and
less loss of life. These precaution
ary measures should be incorporated
Into laws, as a number of live are
sacrificed each ysar through a lack
of them.
The question of bow the King's
Euglish sbould be spoken, which was
started by the Speeches whicb tbe
Duke of Cornwall and York delivered
while in Canada, oontinues to be
debated in tbe papers of tbe east and
west. Tbe consensus of opinion is
tnat tbe drawl which is affected by
some on the bench, by the bar, in the
drawing room and elsewhere and
which has sometimes passed as the
prcper method of speaking the language is now known to be nothing but a
base counterfeit, Tho heir-appaient
by bis clear, unaffected natural
method of speaking, so to speak,
created a now school in Canada and
one which will do much to improve
the language, although it will be diili-
cult for those who have ucouired the
bad habit ot talking Improperly to
give it up. Hamlet'.-, advice to the
p.avers could be read to advantage by
some of these and they might in this
way get rid of some of their more pronounced Iii glial imperfcottos. Bov.
Proietsor Clarke,of Trnity university,
Toronto, hit the nail on the bead
recently during a lecture wbiob be
delivered on the subject of English
pronouneiation. In the course of the
lecture bo said that good pronouneiation was a pari of a good education
and was also a part of good manners.
He admitted tbat the average speaking in Canada is better than the average speaking in tbo old country, bnt
said there was great room for improvement in Ontario.

There is nothing like Asthmalene. It
brings instant relief, even in tbe worst
cases.   It cures when all else fails.
The Rev. O. F. WELLS, of Villa Ridge,

tell you how thankful I feel for the good
derived from it. I was a slave, chained
with pntrid sore tli rout, and asthma for ten
years. I despaired of ever being cured, 1
saw your adveitiseiuent for the cure of
this dreadful and tormenting disease, Asthma, nnd thought you bad overspoken
yourselves, but resolved to give it a trial.
To my astouishment the trial acted like a
charm.    S��ml me a full size bottle.

My wife commenced taking it about-the first of November. I very soon noticed
a radical improvement. After using one bottle her Asthma has disappearid
and she is entirely free from all symptoms. I feel that I can consistently recommend the medicine to all who are nillicted with this distressing disease.
