SENATORS WANT LIGHT.
Situation in tbe Philippines Considered   Not Satisfactory.
Washington Jao. 14.���For the first
time tbis session the Philippine question was touched in the Senate. Interest taken indicates that it will
occupy the attention of the upper
branch of congress for some time
when the tariff bill is reported. The
Philippines were the subject of an
address by Mr. Hoar, (Mass.) who
spoke on his resolutions introduced
yesterday providing for the appointment of a committee to investigate
the administration of those islands.
Mr. Hoar spoke at some length regarding the unreliability of statements
which have been made from time to
time regarding the situation in the
Philippines and tbe causes which led
to the outbreak. He urged tbat there
should be a plan wboreby any senator
in his official capacity could go and
ask for two witnesses to prove the
correctness or incorrectness of any
question, upor whicb light is desired.
Mr. Lodge, Mr. Host's colleague,
said he regarded the resolution as a
reflection on the Philippine commission of which he was ohairman and
the necessity for the latter would
cease were this resolution to be >dopt-
ed. His committete, be said, was perfectly able to handle any investigation which might be conducted. Mr.
Carmack (Dem.) agreed with him.
Tbe discussion was leading rapidly to
an opening up oi tbe whole Philippine question when it was agreed
that the resolution should go over
until tomorrow. Mr. Mason made a
speech in favor of reciprocity witb
Cuba and discussed the protective
policy generally.

Night.
Manchester, N. 11., Jan. 14���Tbe
destiuction of the Kennurd, a granite
structure cnnsidoreu tu be tho finest
liusinuss oflice building in New England, north of Boistou, proved to be
the worst the iu many years, the Iobs
being around hall a million. Besides
the Kennard, the Smytho block was
practically ruined and considerable
damage was dono to tbe homo ot the
Hern, liehl elub. In thu Smytho block
were tlie Park theatre, occupied tonight by J. Z, Little's dramatic company, a printer, Tne World and two
banks.
The fire started just about 9 o'clock
in the clothing store of Allan and
Kimball. The first warning thai the
occupants of tbe Kennard had was an
explosion which resounded through
the city line a cannonading. At the
time thu board of trade waB in session
and the moment the explosion was
heard a rush for tbe exists was made.
Tbe host was so intense that the firemen had to fall back and give their
attention to the surrounding boilings.
Despite all they could do, tbe flames
jumped across the street and set fire
to tho Smythe blook. When one of
the rear walls of the Kennard fell, the
roof of the extension of tne Derrytield
club was ignited bnt the|firemen saved
the main building. Much other adjoining property was considerably
damaged by both fire and water.
The cause of the fire is believed to
have been located in the new electrical
connections in Allen and Kimball's
store. The chief figures of loss are
given as follows: Kennard, 8250,000,
tenants, $200,000; Smythe blnck,
$20,000, tenants 810,000; Derrytield

Institute of Electrical Engineers
before leaving for Europe.

described what his system had accomplished, lie then referred to the prevailing opinion that wben a message
is sent into space any one uf the
necessary appatatusns can intercept
that message and rend it. He said:
"Messages can only be read when tbe
receiver and transmitter are attuned.
This attuned system as perfected is
not ut present in use on ships. It bas
been deemed necossary that eaoh ship
sh'uild be equipped with apparatus
which permits their reading a message
Bent from any other ship because of
the possibility of aid being required
in cases of danger." Signor Marconi
declared that shortly It would be possible to Bend many messages over the
sea ut the same timo.

A CAMPAIGN MYSTERY.
The addresB of John A. Kirkpatrick,
candidate for mayor, appeared yesterday and the public did not suom to be
as much concerned in the several
planks in the platfoim as it was as
to the identity of the individual who
wrote it, There were a number who
were firm and unswerving in the
belief that it was written ln the fine
literary style 01 tbe chief editor of
the Tribune. Thoy thought, and
declared in support of their contention, that thev could detect certain
beauties of style and mannerisms of
expression which no hand less cun
uing than his 2onld have produced
They declared that they were
thoroughly familiar with the elegant
literary mannerisms of thn gentle
man in question and though they did
not Bee him while the thoughts were
surging through his brain or while he
was transferring bis thoughts to paper
still they were just as confident that
he was the author as though they had
seen him while the vigorous and
bright progeny of his brain were
being born and put to the work of
molding public opinion almost before
the ink on.the paper was dry. They
had arrived at this conclusion by a
system of deduction similar to that
employed by Sherlook Holmes and
were just as certain that they were
correct as they are tbat their bills ior
thc current month will reach them on
February 1st. Duubting Thomases
made up of those wbo do not observe
closely, and who never reason by in
duction, proudlv pointed to the signa
turc, wbich occurs in capitals, and
occupied nearly a whole lino at the
bottom of thc address, and triumphantly said how can you get over
this irrrefagible evidence of who the
actual author of the address is? The
inductionists pointed out the tact that
Shakespeare's plays boie his signa
ture, and yet Ignatius Donnelly and
many others are certain that Sir
Francis Bacon wrote thom: a signa
ture to tbem amounted to nothing,
except when written on a check, when
the mental and literary abilities of an
individual havo to be taken into consideration. The arguments pro and
con as to who really wioto the ad
dress were kept up all day and long
into the night and still the matter
was Involved in as much doubt when
the several groups, who had been dis
cussing it, dispersed for the night as
it was when it opened early in the
morning. It will probably go down
in the history of Nelson municipal
politics as one of the unsolvable mys
terlcs, and will equal in time that
other unanswered question of "wbo
Htruck Billy Patter-on?"
A SPLENDID ENDORSATION.
The meeting at the Opera House on
Monday evening was attended by
nearly 000 of the residents of this
city, and wa! the strongest sort of an
endorsation of Mayor Fletcher, Alderman John Hamilton, Alderman Harold Selons, John Elliot, Alderman
W. G. Gillett, Alderman John Hater-
sen and W. J. Wilson. It was a
thoroughly representative meeting
made up of mine owners and miners,
merchants and their clerks, men in
professions and men in trades. Tbe
Bpeakers were listened to with elose
attention and when they made a telling point they were vociferously
applauded.     There was no hostile In-
teiruptions, like those whioh frequently occur at political meetings,
and which sometimes demonstrate
that the audience is oot In political
sympathy witb the speaker-* and the
Intensity and frequency of these unfriendly demonstrations and the
degree with which the audience ayra-
patizes with the dlsuturbers may be
taken as a true index of the public
esteem; with which the speakers are
held. There waa none of these unfriendly manifestations at the
Monday night meeting; on the contrary all of tbe remarks made and.the
homage given tho speakers showed
that the audience was lnendly to them
and to tho sentiments which they
expressed Tho meeting certainly
demonstrated the direction in which
the political wind Is blowing and
more than any other thing Blnoe the
campaign opened tended to givo increased hope to Mayor Fletoher, the
alderamnlc candidates in sympathy
with him and their supporters of winning by a large majoarlty and had
a correspondiulgy depressing effect on
,Mr. Kirkpatrick and his friends.
Thc manner in which the large
audience revealed its hearty accord
with the action taken by the mayor
and council in regaid to supplementing the city plant with leased power
and with their goneral conduct'of tho
affairs of tho city showed unmistake-
alby how those who composed it foel
on these subjects. Those present gave
no uncertain signa 'of nppr-bation
whon comparisons were made of tho
counoil of 1901 with that of 1000.
Indoed what the speakers said revealed that the affairsjof the oity wore
most ably and (-economically managed
during tbe past year. Then, too,
everyone of the campaign lies lately
put in circulation were refuted with
facts and figures wbich could not be
succesfully controverted. In short
the meeting waa most successful and
was a splendid commendation of the
action of the city government of 1901.
EDITORIAL NOTE?.
The Silent Candidate has at last
spoken, by proxy, and what has he
said���nothing that is particularly
new, and nothing that is specially
bright.
Considering the amount of funds at
Its disposal the city council of 1901
aacomplished a great deal in the way
of publio improvements. The showing
Is one to whicb tbey can point to with
pride.
W. J. Wilson made a short but
effective speech on Monday night. His
concluding words showed that he is a
born politician. He said: "If you
elect me well aud good. If not I will
be your friend just the same."
It was stated on the streets yesterday that the henchmen of J. A. Kirkpatrick bad purchased all of the snow
shovels in town. They expect bim to
be snowed under tomorrow and will
use the snowshovcis to dig him out.
Wonder what makes the Tribune so
quiet during these January days?
Perhaps it sees the headsman stalking
behind its candidate and realizes that
his finish will come tomorrow when
the voters will give him bis political
quietus.
There is a vacancy in the Tribune
ticket as it lacks a third aldermanic
canidate in the west ward. Is it possible tbat no man can be found in all
that big ward wbo would consent to
sacrifice himself filling tbe aching
void in the ticket?
There haa been considerable objection raised and rightly, too, to government by injunction. There is juat as
much objeuticn to government bv
proxy and the people should speak in
no uncertain tones un this question at
the polls tomoirow.
Mayor Fletcher answered in a satisfactory manner the questions put to
bim oy his opponents and his replies
were applauded to the echo. His opponent, Mr. Kirkpatrick, has failed so
far to answer some pert! nent queries
put to him by The Miner.
There iB talk of forming a trust to
purchase all the brooms in the city
witb tbe object ot selling them ou
Thursday evening at advanced prices
to the Bucoessful candidates. Tile
candidates who expect to win should,
therefore, secure an option on a few
hundred brooms before the price is
raised by the trust.
The charge that the city government
ran a wide-open town last year Is not
borne out by the facts. The figures
frunished by the police report* are an
eloquent refutation of this charge. In
1900 there^were 315 sriests and in 1901
th��sre were only 287. This demonstrates most clearly tbat Nelson was
freer from crimes and misdemeanors
under the administration of Mayor
Fletoher^than it was under his predecessor. In 1901, too, there were nine
arrests for gambling, which ia more
than the previous administration can
show. Mayor Fletcher and his council
followed the policy of a happy I
medium   between  two extremes and)

this course seems to have met witb the
approbation of a majority of the
people.
The members of the provincial
government at Victoria are so busy
with combinations and cabals to
extend their official lease of life that
they evidently huve but little spare
time for the tran-.netion of publio
business. In an effort to secure a
hearing lrom them concerning a site
for the city on the Kootenay river for
a power plant the mayor has written
a number of letters to Premier Dunsmuir and tbe members of his cabinet,
but so far has been unable to elicit a
reply. He says the resident member
seems to bave as little influence with
the government as be has.

A CLOSE CURLING GAME.
Only one game was playod lant
night in the Bunyan cap competition
nt the curling rink one sheet of ico
not yet being iu good condition.
Owing to the absence ol ]���'. Starkey,
tho Bkip of one ��* 'ne rinks, F. A.
Tmiirilyn acted in his place without
playing, the third player ot that rink
playing two pairs of stones. Ah all
the players ol that rink are green
curlers, though they did not win they
cume near lt and the game was one of
the closest contested that haa been
played on tho Ice this winter as the
score will show,
Keen intereat was manifested lo the
gaine throughout by the veterans of
the club, partiovilarly tho skips. It
Mir. anybody's game at any stage of
ti..' play and at the beginning ot the
last end the score stood 0 to B, whon
Starkey's rink made a point and had
a narrow margin only from tying the
score, but Walley had the last cud too
strongly guarded.

of good music will show their .ipp.T ���
cintion ot the effort of the gingers

Every member of the chorus is particularly rcquesterl to give his or her
time in closely studying and learning
the score, and to attend the rehaisals

A. F. Rosenberger left on Monday
for the oaRt and will be gone several
months.
The Nelson Boat club pave another
of their successful dances at tbe l'bair
hotel last evening. A large number
were present, and with a good Host
and stirring music a very pleasant
evening was spent.
At the hospital Monday night a
Chinaman named Chow lling died
from peritonitis. He had been
brought in lrom a mining camp the
day before where he had been cooking, but was too far gone for anything
to be done towards his recovery.
Bev. R. B. Blyth, who is tn preach
at the Congregational church on Sunday, will give a lecture on Monday
evening in the same edifice on The
Uoer War. About a year ago this
gentleman gave a very enteitaining
lecture ou the same subject in this
city which was much appreciated
Henry Roy was in the city yesterday
having just leturned from Crawford
bay where he had taken a number of
horses and a quantity of supplies for
tbe Si.lver Hill mine. It is expected
that the tramway will be in shape liy
the end of the present weok and
shipping from the mine will he commenced immediately, thereafter.
The 6enior hockey team are hard at
work practicing for the match with
the Sandon team next Monday evening
at the Tramway rink. As the Sandon
team, owing to the colder weather
experienced in that town, are able to
get in steady practice from the beginning of the winter right through, a
lively game may be looked for.
One of Mr. Kirknatrick's supporters
who waa present at tbe meetiug on
Monday night to hear Mr. Fletcher and
hia supporters speak, yesterday said,
"I will confess that 1 was sorry that
either Kirkpatrick or some of tbe
others did not attend the meeting and
answer some of the speeches made us
they were a good deal stronger than 1
expected, and put a lot of things in a
different light."
Electioneering is preceding very
briskly in the city. There is a noticeable difference in the aemeanor of
soiuo of the leading Kirkpatiick-
Houston workers from that displayed
in-the early part of the campaign.
They are beginning to realize that
they nre up against some unpleasant
realities and have lost much of the
boastfulness which was so noticeable
at first.
At Fraternity hall on Monday a
very successful and pleasant reception
was given to the new rector of St.
Saviour's church, Uev. F H. (Iralinm
It took tho form of an informal entertainment and social, and was greatly
enjoyed by all attending, comprising
the greater part of the congregation of
the church. A number of songs and
musioal selections were given oy some
of the clever amateurs, of which Nelson is fortunate in nossessing a number. Refresh incuts were served by the
ladies of the congregation.
A raffle is to be held shortly at  The
al'lm with a   rather   singular   object.
On Monday A. F. Rosenberger, of this
city,     received     a     parcel     from   a
Colorado   penitentiary       It contained
a   roobt   beautifully inlaid jewel   box*
made of 3.0(H) pieces of wood, containing over 30   different varieties,   and a
very peculiar walking   stick   madu   of
paper,    but   as   stroug as iron.    Witb
them was a letter   from   a   man   who
had formerly worked with Mr. Rosenberger   for   a long period in Colorado,
telling him ol a shooting affair which
the   sender   got   into   aa   a result   of
wbich he bad    been sent   to the penitentiary for a long term of years,    lie
knew of evidence   that would get him
pardoned but had heen unable tliiongh
poverty to procure it, and in his spare
time had worked on these   articles   to
help   to   raise   some   money   for this
object,    and    new    sent   them to   Mr.
Rosenbergei to do what he could.    As
the   latter   was   just going on an extended tiip ne left iho articles   in the
hands   of   Mr.    Mussulman,    of     the
Mines Exchange,   who Is arranging to
rattle them.    fir. Brown.of The Palm,
became   interested   in   the   case   and
donated several prizes   towards   it   so
that   it   will prohably prove an interesting affair.     The articles are on exhibition at The Palm.
l'Jamea Oronin manager of the St.
Eugene mine, at Moyie, is at the
l'hair.
J. L. Parker, who has been at the
l'hair for several days, leaves today
for Rossland.
A miner from the Silver King who
was in the city yesterday stated that
at the mine they were having beautiful weather with bright sunshine all
day. while the valley below seemed to
be filled with a heavy fog.
II. Fitzgerald, of Nelson, was
married last evening to, Miss Mary
Oenery, of lluluth. Thc wedding took
place at tlie residence of Mr. Zolazny,
at tho corner of Ward and Carbonate
strcots, Rev. Wm. Munroe being the
officiating clergyman.
The funeral of Samuel Hockaday,
who porished in the blizzard near Slooan City last week, took place yesterday. The Salvutiun Army, of whioh
tbe deceased was a member, conducted
the services, which were largely attended, and the Nelson Miners Union
attended in a body. At the grave the

Ueorgo K. Tackabnry, agent of the
Nelson and Fott Sheppard railway,
returned on Sunday from a month's
trip to California. He spent most of
tbe time while he was away amid the
orange groves and at thc beach hotels
of Southern California and reports
that he greatly enjoyed the outing and
comes baok to bis work with renewed
vigor.
The disease among horses commonly
known as "pink eye" has made its
appearance In Nelson and Dr. Armstrong, the veterinarian, reports about
30 oases. This disease is reuiaikable
in that it usually makes its appear
ance every ten years. It is not usually
fatal though it incapacitates the
animal for work. The outbreak in
l-'.>���' was not severe, bnt in 1882 the
disease was very widespread and In
some of tho linger cities it was almost
impossible to keep tbe street oars
rnnning.
Yesterday afternoon at the office of
thc chief of provincial police,the trial
of Long Hack, one of the Chinamen
accused of stealing windows aud other
fixtures from the city pest houso was
held. The prosecution was looked
after by W. H. Bullotk-Webster,
while U. S. Lennie represented the
prisoner. The police had discovered
two windows, similar in size and
shape to those missing from tho pest
house in tbe cabin occupied by the
prisoner, but were unable to prove
that they were the same windows and
the prisoner was discharged. The
other prisoner who was brought op on
the same charge was remanded until
today at 2.30 p.m.
Percy Y. Oodenrath of Orcenwod, a
well know Boundary newspaper correspondent passed through the city
yesterday on hia way to Montreal and
Toronto. Mr. Gudenrath's mission is
connected with the colonization of
arable lands near Grand Forks in the
Kettle river valley. This section of
the Boundary is notable for the excellency and productiveness of its soil
lor fruit culture. The climatic eon
ditions are all that can be asked by
tbe horticulturalist and tbe markets
for fruit and garden produce througbt
tbe district cannot be excelled. One
of the best of tbe fruit farms is W. H.
Covert's, three and a half miles Trom
(���rand Forks. Mr. Covert took up tbe
place 1(3 years ago aud has some 11,000
trees. His 320 acres has been divided
into 10 acre plots with a view to disposing of same to small farmers. Mr.
(iodeurath will endeavor to induce immigration in that direction, among
the agriculturists ot eastern Canada.
He takes with him a small but choice
exhibit of fruits, vegetables, etc., and
also a number of photographs of Mr
Covert's farm and the district generally. He will have published a pamphlet dealing on tbe subject giving
all the information possible relative
to fruit culture in the Kettle river
vnllny.

MR. :nOATE'S STATUS.
Will Not De Official Kcpiesentative at
tbe Coronation.
Washington, Jan. 14.-Mr. Choate,
U. S. ambassador to London, who
sailed today for his post, will not,
strictly* speaking, havo any official
connection with the special coronation embassy. This was the fact during the golden jubilee when Ambassador Bay was not even ex-offlco a member of tbo special representation of
the United States government. As a
matter of fact, however, the United
States ambassador is a very Important
figure in the ceremonies and is in
almost every instance attendant upon
all the functions in which the special
representatives participate. Generai
J. S. Wilson had a conference witli
Secretary Root at the tbe war department this afternoon and formerly accepted the appointment of military
member of the special embassy to
London at the coronation of King
Edward.

Propose   to   Enact American Regulations as to Imports.
Berlin, Jan. 14.���Baron Heyl Zuher-
rnsheim national liberal proposed an
amendment to the tariff hill in committee today which was aimed at the
United States. The government is
authorized to apply to imports from
any foreign state, such regulations
reBpectting the consular auhentication
ol invoices of such imports, the declaration of their market value and the
costs of their production, as may be
enforced against German exports.
The language of the amendment
proposed by Haron Heyl Zuherrnsbeim
is fashioned after the American law
aud is regarded by the committee as
undoubtedly designe to offset the custom requirements of the United
States and satisfy the long standing
complaints of the German manufacturers. This amendment bas not been
discussed but inquiry of some mem
bers of the committee has elicited the
statements which indicate that it is
more than likely to be adopted.

Upon that theory, proved beyond a

after. Scientists, chemists, druggists
and physicians all "took a hand'' and
the successful issue is the present product known as "Newbro's Herpicide."
This remedy actually kills the parasites that infests the hair bulb, does
its work most effective und contains
not an atom of substance injurious to
anything else than the germ alone.
Uerpioide causes the hair to grow as
