An affray occurred yesterday at Slo-
ciiu Oity which might easily have resulted futally, nnd the victim was
brought tu tho Kootenay Lake General
II ispitnl   where   he   immediately  re-
the disaster have   caused   unfavorable
comment in the papers,   but   there   is
nothing   but   praise for the behaviour
of tho officers   and meu   after th* ves
sels struck. The papers scout the magnetic current theory.Vanity Fair says:
"The  Paris cnrtaiuly did not  know
where she   was.    Oue single company
has sont ships past the Manacles twice
a week each way   for  many years.    If
the current sucks on the rocks that are
magnetic  enough to alter the compass
why have   these   ships   escaped so of
ten."   Other   papers   have    oxpressed
themselves in a  similar   strain.    Captain Varnoy, formerly   commander  of
the   British   warship   Oherom   writes
that ho spent   a   winter   steaming   at
full speed up   aud   down the   channel
to test A boiler, and most positively ns-
ssorts that with attention, a good lookout,   and   sounding,   the     navigation
channel   is froo from danger.     A rop
resontative of the Associated Press interviewed the   authorities   of   Trinity
House on the subject, and Chief Pilotage Clork  Koigain  characterized  the
magnetic thoorv, us "utter nonsense "
He    Baid   tho   disaster    must  havo
boon caused by "Inexplicable blundering," adding, "I know every yard   of
the British   coast  liuo, aud  I cnu   see
no satisfactory reason for the wreck."
Captain   Creak, head of thn compass
department  said:   "Howovor  closo  a
ship got to the Manacles her com misses
would not he affected   raoro   than   the
millionth   part of a   degree   and   even
that could not be  felt outside  of  300
yards from the shore No ship's course
ought  to  be   nearer   than   two  miles
from that coast."

.. _.,..��� ... London was inor
nnd when Sir Julian Pauncefotereached London on his way to The Hague
he held conferences with Lord Salisbury which resulted m a definite proposal for setlling the boundary issues,
aud reomviug it as au obstacle of tho
commission.
The mam point of this proposal was
that a separate tribunal of arbitration
should pass on the boundary ques
tion It was communicated to Ambassador Ohoate and hy him to tho
Stato Depacrmeut, When tho plan was
received the president was absent at
Hot Springs, Virginia and it wns folt
desirable to await bis return before
giving a trial answer. Thorn was little or no doubt that the answer would
havo been favorable
Just as the aooeptanoe was about
to have been given the officials here
were surprised to have oresented what
they regarded as an extraordinary condition, which Canada imposed in connection with tho submission of the
question of arbitration. This condition was that Canada should have Pyramid Harbour and a strip of territory
on thn Lynn Canal without refereno!
to the goners! conclusions reached by
tho tribunal of arbitration. This port
and strip of territory on the coast
would have carried also the back country leading to tho interior. This
condition, coming after the arbitratra-
tion plan had been formally postponed
and /mis about to be accepted, caused
not only surprise bnt some indignation among the officials hero, tfc was
decided not to accept this condition
and a peremptory refusal was given to
the proposition. Tims the matter
stands. There is every reason to believe that, theio will be no yielding of
the officials hern to Canada's condition
If it is withdrawn tho arbitration
may be arranged as a means of settling
tho boundary.
The opinion in the highest quarters
seems io be positive that without
some adjustment of the boundary matter Iho resumption of tho work of the
joint commission on the many other
tonics considered is entirely improbable.

of   the   case are   rather  shrouded   in
mystery, for the man was lightheaded
wbeu on   tlio   train,   and   though   ho
spoke fairly   rationally to   tho doctors
it   wns   difficult   to   get n  connected
Statement from him.    His story briefly
was that ho was a miner from Rossland
and had gone to Silverton  on the 24th
to compete iu the drilling   coutest, but
that he was not   allowed to  enter  for
the contest  as   be   was   too  good���it
may be   said   hero   that  nobody   who
went to Silverton   scorns to have hoard
of  anyone  being   barred.    He   took a
large sum of  money with   him,   over
$400, some of which was  his partner's
and bad boon given him   to hot   with.
From what he   siid   his   speculations
wero successful.    What ho did  on   the
85th and 2(ith is not known but yesterday bo wns   waylaid   oy   four or  five
inon who demanded his money.  He refused and ono of them tried to stab him
with  a   knife     He   put  up his  ami
to ward off Iho blow   and   received an
ugly gash about six inches in length.
The cut runs from just below the bend
of the elbow round under the arm.
Almost, imuieditcly nftor another
man made another slasb at his stomach, He jumped back, but the two
pairs of trousers lie wan wearing wore
cut through as wore his under clothes.
though fortunately tho kcifo did not
penetrate further.
Tho doctor is of opinion that only
thn fact that be was wearing two pairs
of trousers saved his life. The oihci
wound was aslo a narrow- escape, for
with another half an inch the brachial
artery would havo been severed and
tho man would havo bled to death in
five minutes. As it was it is a wonder bo did not bleed ro death. These
two blows given, someone hit him on
tlio bead with a club or a brick and
ho remembers no more.
He was found about 11 a, m., yester-
dasy in the round-house at Slocan City
by sonic of tho railway men and
brought, to Nelson by tho train, after
his wound had been hastily bandaged.
Ho was thou tnkon to Kootenay Lako
General Hospital where Drs, Hull
and Arthur attended him, He refused
at first to take chloroform, but before
the operation was completed the doctors insisted.
So far bis namo is not known, when
asked at the Hospital he refused it
Later be said "Put me down as Mike
Smith; no, Franklin Smith." But
that evidently is not his right namo.
Ho is n powerfully built man about
medium height, with dark curly
hair, heavy brown moustaohe and
rather aquiline features.
The police arc niter the thugs who
attacked him, and five men have already   been   arrested     on     suspicion.
Today ho will probably be In   a  position to givo fuller details  nnd describe

When a Miner reporter saw him alout
o'clock yesterday evening, hn hud

nnd was imitteriing incoherently about
his work in the mines. His assailants, whoever they were, succeeded iu
getting away with their booty, for he
had no money on him whon brought
into town.
The following letter wns received by
Tho Miner  from   Alderman   Fletcher
for publication last night:���
To tho Editor of Tho   Miner:
Sir���At any other time it would not
bo worth while to notice the daily
utterances of tho Editor of TboTii-
huno, the into disgruntled Mayor. His
main object at present is to throw
dirt in the eyes of the citizens by
thickly besmearing tho present Council.
The electors evideutly desired a
change, and it must be plain to every
ono that each individual of the preseut
Council holds as much at stake in the
City as the Editor ot the Tribune,
they havo no salary to draw from the
citizens, and no franchises on plants
to soli the City, and I think wo can
claim the credit of trying to manage
tho City's affairs on the same lines
as our personal business, The present
Mayor on a smaller, salary serves the
City with as much public spirit aud
good judgment as his predecessor.

Michael Kenna of the first ward known
as "Hinky-Uink," appeared before
the committee and proved to bo the

that tho all-night saloons instead of

public.erime having actually decreased
since they wero allowed to remain

Tho alderman testified that ho paid

and Unit ho charged the difference between that and his f 1,500 salary as

LEGACIES FROM THE EX-MAYOR.
The   gentleman who  was   defeated
for the Mayoralty at the  lust   election
bus never been   able to   cultivate   tho
least affection for tho preseut Oounoll.
Indeed,   his defeat has had the effeot
of driving   him   to   the   opposite   extreme, and never sineo   has   he allow -
ed an opportunity to puss to niis.cpro-
sent tboir action or   to   impugn   their
motive. Jealousy, too,    lias been surging up and down the empty   spaces of
his moral   anatomy,   and rathor   than
seo a good thing emanate   from   them
be would prefer   any  number   of  bad
things afflict   the  Oity.    He has been
laboring   hard   to   defeat tho proposed
money by-laws, not because he believed them   wrong   in   themselves,   but
because he has a   suspicion   their   defeat would be a c'isappointnieut to  the
Council. Aud in this labor be has literally bubbled over with   misrepresentations.
He says, to give an example of them,
that it is proposed to pay out of the
electric light debentures $1, 00 for
"mud flats" that are not worth
�� 100, aud insinuates rather than asserts that 00 por cent, of nn exorbitant
claim will bo paid for land appropriated for tlio reservoir. Both statements
aro untrue. Tho Council have agreed
to no such sums, and insist on arbitration should the parties not consent to
a price that will come within the
bounds of reason.
But why should there bo any
grounds of dispute over these matters
at this late day: If the gentleman in
question had been half as diligent
in discharging his duty while Mayor
as be demands of the present Council,
these tail ends of old transactions
wuuld not be able to present themselves, 11} was importuned tune and
again to come to a settlement over
the reservoir lots, and at a time when
they could be purchased for a song,
but be pursued a policy of procrastination and .nothing was done. He says
tho "mud flats" could not have been
sold for ��100 when the electric light
dam was built. Why did be not buy
them at that figure' Tbo fact is he
completed nothing ho undertook, excepting the sale of the plant to the
City, and if thore are disputes and
trouble over the reservoir lots and
"mud fiats" now, they are two of the
many legacies left by the former Mayor.
Ho knows more than
engineering, more
than   the   miner about mining,   more
than   the   preacher   about   preaching,
more than the teacher  about teaching,
more than the lawyer about law, more
than the doctor about physic, more than
tho railway   man, the steamboat man,
the wholesaler,   the   tailor, the   shoemaker,   and   on   and   cm through the
whole   list   of them,   than   each  and
all know  of their own business.    The
only thing ho does not know is how to
run a  newspaper,   but  he has been so
engaged all his  life in learning  more
of other people's   business   than   they j
know themselves that ho was compelled to neglect   his own.    He   says  the
Engineer does not  know   what lie   is
talking about.    The  electors   will    be
wise if they put their faith in the Engineer, aud tomorow   will   lend   their
credit to raise money enough   to   make
tho town safe against  n water famine.
The man who knows it all   is often au
unreliable guide.

HAS EYES, BUT   SEES NOT.
The Rossland Record remarks:
"We are unable to see the undue advantage The Nelson Miu-jr claims was
taken of tho mine owuers and thair
friends in the Provincial Legislature
in the passage of the eight-hour law.
The objectionable clause wns introduced in the ordinary way and not objected to by a single member. The
Government evidently did it on purpose, and the Opposition must be a lot
of asses to sit by and see it done if
they did not like it. "
If The Record is unable to seo what
it says, it is unable to see that it is
twelve o'clock at noon. The amendment was introduced iu the regulnr
wuy, if by that is meant that it
wns moved, seconded, put from the
chair, and carried. But neither The
Miner uor any person with sense
enough to ^reat so grave a matter
gravely bothers about little considerations of this kind. Tho advantage
taken of the mino owners lies iu the
fact that a law completely changing
the conditions of the mining industry
of the Province wns introduced nuci
psssed without giving thoso most
concerned a moment's notice Unless
so densely stupid as to be hopeless,
tbo members of tho Government, who
are responsible for all legislation,
ought to have known tiiut a serious
alteration in the working day was a
matter of the utmost importance to tho
mine owners ; and if in tbo least impressed with a sense of their responsibility, they would have taken every
precaution to see that the mine owners
were duly notified of their intention
before robbing thorn of a fifth of the
product of the labor they employ and
pay for. The Record may not Bee
any thing unusual or unjust in this,
but others do.
We employ an Engineer to superintend and advise with respect to tin
more important matters of civic administration, including the waterworks.
He tells us that tho system is deficient,
and that unless something be done in
the meantime to improvo it there is
grave danger of a very serious condition of things next wintor There is
only one man in the City who knows
more of this matter than the Engineer,
and thnt is mr. John bonstou, who
knows   more   than auy man   on earth
If the electors will take  the   troublo
to read the money   by-laws   carefully,
thoy will find in a clause near the end
of  each   that   the   tuxes necessary for
interest  and   sinking fund are  to  be
levied ou lauds only, not   on buildings
or improvements,   Thero is an impression that ail  rateable, property   is   liable, and this is bothering the   minds
of a  number who have  purchased lots
nnd   built     houses    for    themselves.
They believe   that   the   levy   will  be
made on   bouses as well ns   the   lots.
This   is   a    mistake.    The      by-laws
themselves expressly declare that lands
only shall be   liable.    The man who is
holding a vacant   lot   for   speculative
purposes will pay   as much as the one
who has put up  a   dwelling  for himself and settled   down   as  a  permanent resident.   That   is worth   remembering.    The   debentures   are   to be a
charge on lands  only.    You   probably
intended to vote   for the by-laws anyway, having pride in the town and being   anxious   to   seo   it progress; but
with this fact fast in  yonr   grip  you
will   do   it   with   greater    readiness
and satisfaction.

It will be a retrograde step to allow
any of the by-laws to be defeated. "Vote
every one of them. The Council aro
not asking to expend a dollar of money
that tho actual needs of the Oity do
not demand, Thoy are elected to do
the business of the City, and say they
required so many thousands for such
and such a purpose if tho business is
to be put on a safe and progressive
basis. Those who elected them should
see that this money is provided. It is
proposed to raise it on debentures,
spread over a number of years ; those
who come after will pay their share
ns well as we. Interest and sinking
fund will be lovied ou land only, not
on buildings or improvements. The
total yearly charge will be a mere bagatelle for a growing, prosperons Oity
like Nelson. To refuse (ho money
would he to vote ourselves too slow going to stay in the race; to grant it Will
be evidence that Nelson is an up-to-
date town and intends to keen there.
The debentures to bo issued under
the authority of the by laws to bo
voted on Monday will l.e a charge on
lauds only, not on buildings and
improvements. It is an application in
miniature of the single tax principle.
Thero need be no doubt on this point,
as it is so provided in' the by-laws
themselves.    On lauds onlv.
"With the largo increase/ of population during the present jcar and the
consequent large consumption of water, I have no hesitation in saying
that with a cold wintor, such as we
have jnst had, the present water supply will bo totally inadequate during
the coming winter. "���City Engineers
report to Council,
"During the time of extreme low
water in Anderson Creek in the beginning of March of this year the
supply was insufficient to meet ordinary demands. Had not the thaw commenced when it did, the question of
water supply wenjd have been a very
serious one. "���City Engineers' report

best of spirits, perched up aloft in tin
caboose, from wbioh point of vantage
we could see the country nn nil sides
"'Whim! The bamming birds" nil
praiue to the maestro who designed
that oabouse.
And the scene wns magificent.
Summer bud indeed burst upon us in
all its glory. The larohes waved theii
branches, bravo in their olive-green
attire, the cotton wood trees and hazels shook their green tendrils exult-
ingly in the wind, the tall dark green
pines and cedars bowed approvingly us
the breeze stirred their tops, all nature
laughed and sang, Joyous in her awakening from the long dreary winter.
Ah how sad to think of the few short
months that summer Btays with us.
"Rough winds do shake the  durlina
birds of May, und summer's lease bath
all too short a dnte. " sang the immortal William to   his   mysterious  friend
Mr. W, H.   How ninny of usnrii fortunate enough to be able to turn,like him,

".But thy eternal   summer   shall   nm

Nor shall Death   brag   them wander'st

Queen's birthday-God bless her,
for the holiday if nothing else���wns,
I regret to sny, a blank day for me
as fur as angling was concerned. I
bad a literary masterpiece lo polish up for a magazine so could noi
get out until noon. Then, I blush to
own it, I abused the hospitality of
soiim friends by overeat ing myself al
1111 al fresco banquet to which I wns
invited. In fact it was nil 1 could do,
feeling as I did like a newly fed boa-
constrictor, to row quietly home before the storm burst upon us.
"There wns a sound of revelry fbul
night," and wo all got gloriously mixed up with tho National Anthem and
"Whoa! the bumming birds"at some-
timo during tbo small hours of the en-
Buing morn.
Last week I wrote of funerals nnd
now I sing of revelries. A time and
place for all things gentlemen. A
season for mirth and a season for sorrow. We cannot always be gay and ii
were a sorry world were we ever serious and sail. "I care not" observed
William tbo Norman to bis U. A. A.
G. on tho morning after the "toot'
'.hich followed the Battle of Hustings "who makes these barbarians'
wines; send me the man who can remove the beehive from my overwrought
brain." I understand that this remark is not to be found in any standard history of England, but u friend
of mine, to whom I am indebted for
the quotation, writes Unit "learned
authorities who have read the original
MS. in Early Norman, make no doubt
as to the correct translation. " I trust
thnt the nonconformist conscience
of Nelson will pardon me if I venture
to suggest that the wish ot the first
William has occasionally, if not often,
found an echo in the breasts of some
of the "boys" of this enterprising
Oity.
"Virginibus puerisque cnntumus'
particularly "pueris" for I am old nm
somewhat portly and the "virgines'
will have uono' of mo. There was u
day though���hut never mind. That,
as Kipling would say, is another story.
How to relieve tbo pangs following
on a too generous absorption of the
juice of the vine, how to innko endurable thnt terrible "day after" when
the roof of the mouth resi moles blotting paper nnd tho surface of tin
tongue is like the well worn velveteen
or plush with which cheap furniture is
upholstered, is now the problem I desire to deal with. In primis, renounce
the obeinist and all his works; nnd
further, be not deluded witli Chat diabolical precept "take a hair of I bo dog
that bit you."
Here is an infallible panacea
which I dedicate to the "gilded youth"
of Nelson. Into a long tumbler put
a well beatan (yolk and white) raw
egg, some crushed ice, u pinoll of
cayenne pepper, n teaspoonful of sifted
sugar, a wineglassful of brandy (tin
best procurable) and fill up with now
milk." Letjthe bar-touder put the tumbler on the "jig-a-jig" machine, that
is if you^can bear to look or listen to
it. then swallow th
yon o '.'i and may n

NELSON'S     NEW     CITY     HALL
Will   Be   a   Credit   to   the City  anil
Province.
Tbo plans for tho proposod civic
building show that it will be a most
creditable and well designed structure.
The dimensions of tho building will
he 5(ixl)4 feet and the height from base
to top of flag statf will be 7fi feet.
In the two storeys and basement
that tho interior will bo divided into
will be plenty of room for the various
offices, fire apparatus, public library
aud other uses for which it has been
designefl.
The basement will  be   divided   into
four   senarate   apartments, where   the
steam   heating and   fire   apprutus will
be stored, also giving room for  a resi
dence  for   the chief fireman.
The materials of which the walls
will be constructed are stone and brick,
the lower story being stone, and the
two upper brick.
The first floor will bo approached
from Josephine street by a wide staircase inside the building. At the en-
trance there will bo a large hall and n
stairway leading to the attic floor
The roof is to be of metal.
Altogether, if the building is erected,
it is oue that the citizens can well be
proud of. It will have a most commanding appearance. Tho clock tower
is a very useful feature ot the building
and ono that will he well   appreciated.
NEW      MATTRESS
FACTORY.
Tho   Latest Addition to the   Cimmir-
olal Enterprises of Nelson.
A Miner leporter had a talk yesterday with Mr. S. Weaver, of the West
Kootenay Wire Works of Trail, who is
iu Nelson for the purpose of erecting a
mattress fuctory here. In answer to
questions be said:
"Our factory will be constrncted on
tho water front near the sampling
works, and our negotiations for suit
able lots are nearly completed. The
main building will he 115 feet by 70,
and of course, there will bo warehouses
as well. I shall stay here until the deal
is through and the contracts for building the factory are let. Once the
work is started, it will not be long
before the factory is in operation."
"There is a barge of Cottonwood now
at Rohson, which was to have gone tn
our works at Trail, but I have tele-
graohed for tho wood to be sent here
instead. We nso cotton wood for the
manufacture of "excelsior" which is
used in upholstering and other branches
of the business. We will manufacture
mattresses, bed springs, cots, and hope
later on as our business increases to
turn out lounges and easy chairs [as
well. Once we are fairly started we
shall bo in a position to supply the
entire trade of West and East Kootenay, and our products will be of such
a quality and price that we shall not
have much to fear from outside competition. "
On Monday evnniug thn Bittner
Company will give their first performance of their return visit, producing
" Young Mrs. Wiuthrnpe." On this
occasion  one lady   will  be   admitted
