At tlic meeting of the oity oouncil
last evening, after reading and acceptance ef Hie minutes of the previous
meeting anil the report of the finance
committee, the matter of a dispute
between two sqnatters on land deeded
to tlic eity for park ourposes on Cot-
tonwoud creek was brought np, and
after a short discussion referred to the
major fur settlement.
A letter was read from Dr. Arthur
regarding the furnishing of the high
school, which led to a long discussion. Several of the members of
the council were of opinion that as it
would probably be Febtunry 1st before tlio school was ready for occupancy that the present council should
let tlie matter stand over and it was
decided Hint this should be done.
Aid, Selous then asked leave to introduce bylaw 103, for the purpose of
raising the sum of 810,000 for the
building aud furnishing of the high
Aid. Irving asked as to when this
bylaw would be brought up for vot-
inc. He did no see why the council
bail to raise f 10,000 when their estimates did not necessitate any such
Aid. Selous explained what the
extra amount would be required. If
the counoil were raising money they
might as well raise the whole amount
at once that was required.
Aid, Iiivng did not see what necessity there was for this council to raise
money for the next council to spend.
I.et llimu raise what they needed for
their own term,
ln reply to a suggestion made that
the government would probably grant
fomcUting additional, Mayor Fletcher
stated that tho present member for
Nelson in the local house had positively refused to ask for it. He had
said that the oity should not be a
mendicant in such a matter, but
hlinuld pa; its way.
Aid.. Irving���I beg your pardon,
Mr. Mayor, but I understood from
the member today that he was work-
bg on that at present.
Md. Selous said that when the matter of building the school was first
brought up that he, and he supposed
the rest of the counoil, was under tho
impression that the other places getting snltools were getting them on the
same terms as Nelaon,but after it had
been gone ou with it was found that
Rossland and Revelstoke were not

getting their schools so, Nelson was

ll'f. ami that he would not undertake
tn aids a cent. There was no need for
Nelson to play the mendicant because
Mother town did it.
Homo further discussion followed.
Aid. Irving being of the opinion that
���ln.000 was loo much for the eity to
"me for ihe purpose.

that hyhuv 103 should  be  read   tor a

In the spring when tho matter of the
Hre alarm system was gone into we
had the promise of the underwirters'
association that if it was installed
the rates would be lowered for
fire Insurance 16 per cent, but nothing
was done about it, but now, just, at
tbe last of the term of tne council we
are going to vote for the sum required
without any promise fiom the underwriters. Now this council cannot do
It,    It's time is too short.
A livoly passage of arms then occurred between the mayor and Aid
Irving in whieh Hat contradictions
were exchanged as to why these matters had not been brought up earlier
in the session.
Aid Selous���Aid. Irving says that
the city oan borrow 8170,000, now its
borrowing limit being only $185,000
then why should we be able to borrow 8150,000 any easier; there is not
much difference. When these bylaws
aro brought up thc people can say
which they will accept and which reject. He went on to say that he was
much pleased with the attitude of
some of the council who would pass a
bylaw for $175,000 without a thought
and tlien objeot to one for lf?0,000 for
objects which they knew perfectly
well were required. As to the fire
alarm he was not so much in favor of
it himself, but all tho business men
were anxious for it, and as it was so
much easier to borrow money in a
lump sum than to raise a little now
and a little then, be had thought it
advisable to put them all together.
Several more tilts occurreu between
Aid. Irving and the mayor, who in-
foimed the foimer gentleman that he
was uot opposing these bylaws ou
principle bnt simply to oppose.
City Engineer McCulloch was asked
for a rough estimate on the cost of
the power plant, but utated that he
had not been able to complete his
work in the matter as yet. It was,
therefore, decided to adjourn the
meeting till Thursday evening.
Before the council adjourned it was
deoided to improve the grading of
Cedar street to the amount of $50 and
also to expend 8125 In the olearing cf
thc channel of Cottonwood orcck below the falls.
iThe council then adjourned, but
before the members dispersed a flash

Hunk House  Burned and 100 Men Out
of Employment.
F.irly on Sunday morning the bunk
house at the Silver King mine was
destroyed by fire with all the con
tents, some of thc miners having diffi
culty in getting out alivs. The fire
started about 4.45 o'clock in the
drying room and bad got such head
way that as soon as the door was
opened the smoke name out in such
volumes as to fill the building. Some
of the miners, of whom there were
about 100 in the building, saved nothing but the clothes they could hastily
put on and some lost considerable
snms of money. The fire made rapid
headway and soon little remained of
thc fine structure.
As daylight broke a crowd of the
homeless staff was watching the
smouldering ruins of what bad once
been the boarding bouse from the
verandah of the store. One of the
chaps, commonly known as "tbe old
man of the hills" with his long back
hair waving in the wind set the
phonograph going on the tune "Any
old Plaoe I oan Hang my Hat on is
Home Sweet Home to Me," while the
crowd joined in tne chorus.
The bunk house was a four story
truclnre capable of accommodating
about 150 men and shortly before the
lire supplies for the winter had been
put in so that tho loss was heavy.
There was 814,000 of insurane.
Supplies were sent   up  Sunday  and
preparations   immediately   started   to
provide temporary accommodation for

Every German Interest Affected by the Tariff
Introduction In the Reichstag
Portends a Vigorous
Berlin, Den. 2.���The debate on the
German tariff bill in the Reichstag
opened today. This bill is the most
important which has been before tbe
house for a long time; but it does not
imply any deviation from the policy
of a treaty of commerce, said the
Imperial chancellor, Count Von
Buelow, on the contrary the Federal
governments are firmly resolved to
pursue a policy, with commercial
treaties in future, in tbe Interests of
Germau industry while, of course,
upholding the just rights of Germany.
The emperor has approved the bill
which is the result of several years
comprehensive aod careful labors.
The measure also is intended to furnish a better weapon for future commercial treaty negotiations with other
Dr. Von. Thielman, secretary of the
Imperial treasury, said that in spite
of higher duties on cereals the government hoped to come to an understanding with the United States.

one of her buats.     It was feared  that
her plates   had been damaged, but an

in   the third con-j she had suffered no   damage   and  she

Brave But Futile Attempt to Save HeJ
Vancouver, Dec. 2.���The provincial
police received word this afternoon
that five Indians had been drowned
from a canoe on the north arm of
Durrani inlet on Saturday. Little
Goorge, brother ol Chief Harry of the
Indian mission across inlet, his wife,
three children and an Indian woman
named Kathleen, were the occupants
of the boat. When a squall struck
the canoe the occupants were tlnown
into the water. The man sank at
once, as did the woman Kathleen.
Little George's wife was a strong
swimmer. She took one child In each
arm and the baby Id her teeth and
swam thus 130 yards to shore. Sad to
relate, all three children died after
the heroic mother had landed them on
shore. Great sympathy has gone out
in Vancouver for the poor Indian
mother and wife.
Word was received todny that the
Dominion government is to build au
assay office in Vancouver, the present
rented quarters not being large
enough to accommodate thc   business.
Berlin, Dec. 2.���Count Von Buelow,
the Imperial chancellor, in introducing the greatest parliamentary struggle that Germany has ever faced, today
counselled the members of tbe Reichstag to moderation of language,
deolaring that the eyes of the world
were upon them.
Although this wns Germany's affair,
said Count Von Buelow, it is necessary to maintain a resolute front to
the other nations of the world.
Brotwucher (bread usury, or thc
raising of the price of bread) is to be
the buttleword of the manufacturing
capitalists and the socialists alike,
who by a curious turn of politics now
unite in passionate opposition to a
bill that primarily increases tho oost
of food stuffs. Every individual small
interest throughout Germany that is
adverely affected by the tariff bill, is
organized against this bill. Popular
and irresponsible sentiment gathers
around these compact and highly organized fighting units. This opposition to the measure is more powerful
outside than inside of th, German
While the government is aware and
feels this opposition it also recognizes
and sees tbat the present period of industrial calamity in Germany is an
inopportune time to press a measure
raising thc cost of food. Thc government is so pledged to thc Agraaian
party, so completely committed to the
measure that it feels_it oonnot recede
therefrom or postpone its consideration. Consequently the ministry entered upon the debate today determined to sec the thing through hut
with no cheerfulness of spirit. It is
believed Germany is about to enter
upon as intense a period of politiral
disturbance as existed in Great
Britain during the corn law agitation.

Formal Opening Function Without
Unusual Feature.
Washington, Deo. 2.���Thc opening
day of the first session of tho 57th congress in tho House of Representatives
furnished a spectacle that delighted
the crowded galleries. The machinery
of the house is cumbcrous and Is set

A few days sinee the Fulton, a

disappeared under the water ot
Peeonic Hay, _. I., and remained
submerged for 15 hours. The
boat is the largest of the Holland pattern yet built and the test was made

Admiral .fohn S. Lowe, U. S. N., (retired) ;_and Captain Frank T. Cable

period they certainly will become formidable in naval warfare. While it
is true that those in the vessel can
only see for a short distanoe around
thera while submerged still if they can
remain under water for Romany hours
there would be ample time iu which
to find the hulls of the enemy's vessels, to attach torpedoes to their bottoms and, from a safe distance,explode
them. If this can be done it means
a revolution In naval warfare as the
largest battleship wonld be completely
at tho mercy of these submeiged
terrrs.as there is apparently no means
of successful defence against them
Had the Spaniards had a half dorcn
of these boutB at the time Admiral
Dewey sailed into Manila harbor they
could have destroyed the entire
Ameiican squadron and the Philip
pines would still be in tho possession
of Spain. Had Cervera had a dozen of
theBe boats be could have sent thei
out of Santiago and perhaps there
wonld bave been no Sampson-Schley
controversy as to who was entitled to
tbe credit of the victory over the
Spanish fleet. It looks as though submarine torpedo boatH havo come to
stay ard the naval authorities cf the
different powers will bo compelled -to
take them into their calculations in
the wars of tbe future. It is claimed
that they can be made of such a size
that the larger war vessels ean carry
two or three of them on deck and that
they can be launched almost as readily
as ordinary life boats. Wheu the
enemy is sighted at sea they can be
launched an-1 sent to scatter destruction among his vessels. If this is the
case the only possible safety would
seem to be in Might.
The destruction by fire of the arge
bunlihouse of the Silver King mine,
together with its contents of provisions, is rcgettable, as it comes at a
.ime when snow is on the gound nnd
when it will be difficult to rebuild.
Fortunately the structure was insured
and the loss will not be very great.
Captain Gilford, the manager, has
started the work of erecting ternpjrary
buidings to tako the plaje for the
time being of the structure which was
destroyed and expects to have a fnll
force at work on the mine within a
short time. This will tend to minimize the bad effects of the lire.
in North Carolina as a mineral
curiosity. It lias been found in hundreds of placer gold mines in California, Oregon and British Columbia,
in sufficient quantities to place the
North America above South America as
a source for this precious metal and
probably next to'Kussia���if the gold
miner can be induced to abandon his
prejudice for the yellow metal and
save the platinum with it. This does
not seem difficult, espec.ally with the
latter equal to gold in price; but nevertheless groat quantities of platinum
and its allied metals, osmium ani
iridium, have been thrown away.
The news of the assignment of
Thomas Earle, of Victoria, which occurred several days since, will be
heard with regret by the people ol
Nelson and vicinity. Mr. Earle has
been long identified with the business interests of Victoria and the
province and has established a name
for integrity and his failure
alter many years of apparent success is regrettable. He has
the satisfaction, however, of knowing
that his failure was not the outcome
nf a career that was full of chicanery
and fraud. His good name should
enable him to get on his feet again
and make a new start. No one who
knows him but will wish that he may
be given every ^opportunity to do this.
Mr. C. E. Ilowe, city health officer
of Atchiso.Kas., says that tbe vinegar
treatment is most successful in smallpox. He declares that the results of
his experiments have passed the point
of theory and is now ar established
fact, having been efficient in a number of ease of exposure. Anyone
vaccinated or not ean nurse those
afflicted with smallpox without the
slightest fear of contracting the dread

vinegar in spocnfnl doses, mixed with
water, four times a day. lie recommends cider vinegar, as others contain

Asthmalene Brings Instant Relief and Permanent Cure in all Cases.
, There is an Increased demand for
niekel,     chromium     and    platinum,
��� whiob is causing a zealous search to
be made for them. The supply of
platinum is particularly short and in
(iermany there is talk of confining the
use of the metal to certain purposes
and prolnibting it for otheis so that
the consupmtion will be decreased.
The Engineering and Mining Journal
in speaking of the scarcity of those
metals says:
Nickel, chromium und platinum are
needed in the United States. The conditions: of occurrence are being inves-
' tigated   more   carefully  than at   any
icent lime.      lt chances that all three
metals are sought in the same   rocks-

No   less   than   fonr new sources  of

reported, making profitable extraction
possible with only a small percentage
of nickel. Chromium ores require,
nn the other hand.50 per cent, or more
of enromie oxide to make the ore profitable for blobrornate manufacture.
The zealous search for  platinum   in

Andrew Carnegie in his old age
seems to delight in giving utterance
to prophecies and some of his outlines
of tho future are bb doleful as the
croakings of a melancholy and superannuated raven. A short time since
he stated that Scotland was destined
to become the mere playground of tho
Anglo-Saxon race. This, he said,
would be the outcome of thc working
out of the coal minos of the country,
which he declared was but a matter
of a comparatively short time. When
the coal was all mined, it would result in the death of her Industries
and the gradual emigration of these
engaged in them. This prophecy was
made in the face of the success of tho
Glasgow exposition and notwithstanding that Scotland wns never more
prosperous than at present. Mr. Carnegie forgot, perhaps, that tho Soottiah
people have over had lo cope with
great difficulties anil that they always
succeeded In overcoming tliem. They
will linil new coal measures, if they
exist, and if not tlu-v will import coal
and we do not believe that the country-
will ever become simply tho playground of the Angol Saxon race, notwithstanding the prediction of the old
Compressed air fur ventilation is a
pour method of supplying miners with
a breathable stmoiphere, says the
Mining Record, It is usnally too
much contaminated with volatile
hydrocarbons derived from the lubricants used in the air cylinder. Such a
ventilation is also very expensive. As
a temporary expedient or as an adjunct to au already fair system of ventilation the use of cuitiprcsM-tl air
offers some advantages. The exhaust
from air ilrills in headings remote
from the ventilation system renders it
possible to cnriy suoh headings
forward with good success. What we
refer to more particularly, however,
is the carrying out of active ore getting witi. a ventilation by compressed
air; ut best this Is a very poor sub
stitnte for natural ventilation. Miners
ounnot work in a bad atmosphere to
advantage any more than anv other
workman and a constantly replenished atmosphere of cool pure air is no
more a luxury   underground   than   on
the surface,   it is nn absolute necessity
for good work to be done.

There is nothing liko Asthmnlene. It
brings instant relief, even in tbe worst
cases.   It oures when all else fails.
The Rev. O. P. WELLS, of Villa Kidge,
111., says: "Your trial bottle of Asthmalene received iu good condition. I cannot
tell you how thankful I feel for tho good
derived from it. I was a slave, chained
with putrid sore throat and asthma for ten
years. I despaired of ever being cured. 1
saw your advertisement for the cure of
this dreiidful and tormenting disease, Asthma, and thought you had overapoken
yourselves, bnt resolved to give it a trial.
To my astonishment the trial aoted like a
charm.   Send me a full size bottle.

Gentlemen: Your Asthmaleno is an
excellent remedy for Asthma and Hny
Fever, and its composition alleviates all
troubles which combine with Asthma,
Its success is astonishing and wonderful.
After hnving it carelully analyzed, we oan state that Asthmalene contains
no opium, morphine, chloroform or ether.    Very truly yours,

Gentlemen : I write this testimonial from a sense of duty, having tested tbe
wonderful effect of your Asthmalene, for the cure of Asthma. My wife has
been afllcted with spasmodic asthma for th" past 12 years. Having exhausted
my own skill us well as many others, 1 chanced to see your sign upon your
windows on 130 th street, New York, I at onoe obtained a bottle of Asthmaleno.
My wife commenced taking it about the first of November. I very soon noticed
a radical improvement. After using one bottle her Asthma has disappeared
and she is entirely free from nil symptoms. I feel that I can consistently recommend the medicine to all who are nfUioted witb this distressing disease.
Yours respectfully, O. D. PHELPS, M. D.
Dn. Taft Bnos, Medicine Co, Feb. 5,1901.
Gentlemen : I was troubled with Asthma for 22 yenrs. I have tried numerous remedies, bnt they have all failed. I ran across your advertisement and
started with a trial battle. I found relief at once. I have since purchased your
full sized bottle, and I am ever grateful. 1 have a family of four ohildren, and
for six years was unable to work. I am now in the best of health and am doing

llev. .1. II. White, in his sermon
last night in thc Methodist church
touched on a practical subject in a
practicable way that had the virtue
of recognizing things as they are. He
took as his text the eighth verse of
Luke XVI: The children of this
world are wiser in their generation
than thc children of light. Speaking
cf the saloons ns compared with the
church, mid of those qualities they
exhibited which the churohes might
imitate, he note! that they made tbeir
places -.iltrnctive and comfortable; the
saloon keepers were genial and for
the most part honorable, generous and
fairminded. In the second place they
weie at their business all tho time
and in the third place the saloon furbished whiit almost every one feels
lie needs some time or othor, a stunn.
lant. While he maintained that no
stimulant was so elevating, so rca', so
enduring as that of the knowledge of
Christ, not everyone availed bimsolf
of it. The saloons were a success because they filled a want of men without homos, they were corafortalbe
anil they appealed to the sai'ial instincts of the community. Then the
saloon men were politicians, they
put their business before everything
else, they know what they wanted and
they voted for it and consquently got
what they wanted.
The churcli was doing good and
those who wished its help could always get it but men had to Beek it
����t; it was so with the reading rooms
they ware doing much good but all
did not wish to read at all times and
iheio was a class of men whom the Y.

Mr. E. J. Carpenter's great scenic
production of Quo Vadis comes to the
Nelson Opera House next Friday evening, December 6th. On account of the
immense popularity of the book, this
play has attracted much attention.
The costumes are historically correct,
each being copied from those in the
British Museum, and are marvels of
magniriciice. All tho sonery Is carried by the company and it includes
some very elaborate views, among
them being Nero's Palace at Rome,
the Harden of Aulus Plautius, the
Colisenm, the Roman Amphitheatre
aud Arena, and the Burning of Rome.
The play follows the book olosely and
bring out the startling scenes in a
singularly realistic manner. The
cast is a well balanced one, and was
especially selected for Quo Vadis. Tho
many scenes presented form a perfect
kaleidoscope of human emotions, which
can not fail to interest student s of
human nature. i
The cast for thc "Chimes of Nor
mandy," which is shortly to be produced by the Nelnon Operatic society,
has been decided on. It is .is follows:
Serpolettc, Mrs. W. A. Mnotlonald;
Gerraaine, Mrs. Melville Parry; Gertrude, Mrs. E.McLeod; Suzanne, Mrs.
R.H. Williams; Henri, R. Thompson ;
Jean Greuicheux, R.W. Day;Gaspard,
ia miser), CvB. Winter; The Raillie,
E. Criddle: Registrar, C. Prosser;
Assessor, I. G.Nelson ; Notary, Onslow
Newling. The costume have arrived
from Philadelphia and are new and
beautiful. The scenery is being
painted in Spokane. Among tho specialties will be the Quakeress quartette
and the peasant dance. The "Chimes
of Normandy" promises to surpass
even "H. M. B. Pinafore" and "The
Mikado," the two former productions
of the Nelson Operatic society.

To go to the, piney woods is a help,
but if one carries along the bad habits
of food and drink that bave caused
sickness, the piney woods will not

Coffee drinking caused blindness in

colfee at a meal it brought on head

this feeling wore olf nervousness and
restlessness would set in unlil I
drugged myself with ooffee again.

Thc low stage of water in the lake
oocosions considerable difficulty in
transferring freight from the steamers
to the wharf. Tbe floating wharf that
is used in landing lias become so
waterlogged with use that it is more
an incumbrance than a help, it being
necessary now to block tbe gangplanks up in order to get loaded trucks
across the float and up to the wharf.
The tug Halys yesteiday brought iu
a barge with a load of cottonwood to
be used in mnking excelsioi at the

Irip of the season to Bonner's Ferry,as
Capt. West does not think that the
river above Kootenay Landing will be
open more than a couple of days more,
as very slight frost Is required to
freeze up that portion of it. On this
trip the Halys will tako up a barge

down striking him on the hack of the
shoulder. Four ribs were broken und
the shoulder blade .shattered to some
extent. He was not brought down tu
the hospital till the next morning and
in the meantime be had another narrow escape from burning in tbo boarding house. His brother-in-law, W,
H. Whitinore, had sat up with him
and just a few minutes before thn
alarm of fire was given had lain
down to sleep. Whitinore\s partner

to spare before exit would have been
impossible. West lost $|H in llionny

Another ridiculous food fad has been
branded by the most competent
authorities. They have dispelled the
silly notion that one kind of food is
needed for brain, another for muscles,
and still another for bones. A correct diet will not only nourish a particular part of tho body, hut it will
sustain every other pait. Yet, how-
vcr good your food may be, its nutriment is destroyed by indigestion cr
dypepsia. You must prepare for their
pnoarance or prevent their coming by
liking regular doses of Gieen's August
Flower, tbo tavonte medicine of tbe
healthy millions. A few doses aids
digestion, stimulates the liver to
heallbv aotion, purifies the blood, and
makes you feel buoyant and vigorous.
