makes exceedingly interesting reading.
The Lectfje, New Denver, says tlie
labor trouble in the rilocan tins not yet
reached a definite solution. How can
it reach u solution as long as one side
believes that unreasonable demands are
made and tho other refuses to moderate them'.- It is but another instance
of an irresistible force coming into
contact with nn immovable body.
There can lie no solution excepting
through the Legislature, Some modifications of the Eight-Horn' law.failing
its absolute repeal, will oiler upper-

oonveyed, however, that this was only
a preliminary, as he intimated tbat
the questions would be discussed at
greater length as the campaign progressed. Less than n week remains,
yet the gentleman has given 110 sign
of challenging public discussion,either
on the platform or through his newspaper We understand there are several gentlemen in the City who would
be glad to meet Mr. Houston on the
platform, and there is no doubt a gen
eral wish that he would give them tht
opportunity by carrying out tho implied promise ol hiH address.

There is teeming evidence in those
short, extracts that Mr. Houston is
either a charlatan or is very ignorant
nf municipal methods aud principles.
II may be said first that a beginning
has already been made, and a most
substantial   one,   towards  permanent
street improvements. As this is ig-
noted, we are instilled in the belitf
that Mr. Houston desires to deceive.
That, however, is not remarkable, aud
need not be insisted upon. If is umie
important to be assured that if Mayor
he/vould not consent to the issue of
debentures excepting for works that
wool 1 yield a revenue. And he immediately adds that the principal

out Candidates.
Tim Aldermanio situation has now
tiikoii definite sliape. Yesterday after-
110011 Alderman MoKHlop was, with
considerable difficulty, induced to run
again. His sterling common sense
mill integrity of purpose made themselves i'ult during the past year, ami
there is no doubt but that he will be
re-elected. Dr. E. 0. Arthur nud Mr.
A. iyerlnnil will, as stated in yesterday's Miner, also run for the West
Ward. In tbe Rust Ward Messrs.
Hamilton fivers and "Blake"   Wilson
have definitely decided to run,and two
stronger, better and more rcpresenta-
tivu men could hardly be found. Both
are shrewd and prominent business
men and desrvedly popular, Mr. ('.
Morrison, ns previously announced, is
the third candidate,
The e si* candidates, while no compact exisis botwenn them, represent
the progressive element iu iho City,
and ,ni broad, general questions are
probably very much in nooord, One
thing is certain, and that is that they

There is .10 question of any straight

of the electors independently of the

Madden will also try his luck again in
the West" Waul, and Mr. W. Irvine is
also mentioned as a candidate for tlie
Same locality. Mr. .1. A. Irving has
annonnoed himself as a candidate iu
the East Ward, aud several oilier
names have also been mentioned,
though, BO far as could he learned last
night, no ded.nte annoiiiicenieiit have
been made besides those   given   above.
A meeting of the householders and
propeity holders of the Kast Ward was
held last night to ennsirier the municipal contest, nud how the result might
affect them. Ihe.question of remov
ing the houses of ill fame from East
linker Street was considered the all
Important one by these present, and it
was decided tn endeavor to obtain a
statement of the question from ouch of
the candidates. A committee was ap-
pointed to wait 011 the various candidates and lenrii their views ou llns
Bnbjeot, and it wns dcidert to support
thuso candidates who pledge themselves to have the hniises removed, und
oppose those who declined. Should
all the candidates give favorable answers, they will probably take no part
in the eleitlons us n body.

To 'he Citizens of Nelson :
Jn response to numerous requests
from business men, property Owners
aud ratepayers, I offer myself as n candidate for Mayor of the City of Nelson
at tho approaching Municipal Elections.
Briefly stated, my plntform is as follows :
If elected it will bo my  earnest   en-1
denvor to assist   in more firmly   establishing Nelson as the wholesale distributing centre of the Kootenay Country
���the position for wliich she  bns   been j
so admirably designed by nature.
In   furtherance   of   this idea, I will
continue my consistent advocacy of tbe
construction   of  11   wharf which   will.
meet present and future requirements
Iof ihe wholesale and other business in-
I Iciest*.
I believe thai, the City has reached
that stage when permanent street improvements have become au absolute
necessity and that the cost should be
met, as far us feasible, from current;
revenue and should the Citizens see tit
10 entrust. 1110 with the office of Mayor.
It will be my aim to carry out n will
devised system of street, improvements.
It will be toy policy  to oppose  tbe|
borrowing of monev unless the same be
used for the increase or  establishment
of Public  Works producing a revenue
to the Taxpayers,
I tun opposed to any  increase in   the
salary of Mayor, which   would   neces- j
sarily involve 11 reduction   in   salaries i
now paid au efficient stall' of  oilicials,
or an increased burden  to the taxpny- j
