(Special Dispatch to Tl.o Miner.)
Victoria, B. C. Jan. II���Secure for
the time being with their mnj rity of
one, although it seems now that it is
but a question of time before they
will meet defeat, the Government to
day moved  the consideration  of th(,
Speech from the Throne. The address
which was moved by Tisdele (Vancouver), and J. M, Maitin (Rossland),
after giving the expressions ol loyalty
and hopes thnt British supremacy
would be restor.id soon in South Africa,referred with congratulatory phrases
to other portions of   the Speech.    Both
members  spoke nt length In moving
the address but dealt for tho most part
with general ties in which they sang
the praises of the Government, they
referred to the increased mining activity, representation for the Boundary,
the settlement Of that district and other general matters.
J. H. Turner replied to the nddessin
a  splendid   speech   which lasted two
house __nol_.'__g with an amendment
to the  address,   expressing   iioii-cniifl-
denoe   in   the   Gnvenrmeut,      He   severely arraigned the liiinucinl policy of
the Government and showed  how  in
floating the Provincial Loan thev   had
caused the loss of   ninny thousands  to
the Provln.e.    He told of the   manner
iu which the credit   of   the   Province
had   been injured by the financial policy of the Government, und  remarked
that when   the   loan   was tloattd   the
British public had  so   fjr   lost   contl-
iletiie ill   the Province that when   the
lists were   opened, less   than   five per
cent   was Inscribed   to  the loan.    Regarding the   cash   grant being   sulisti-
tut'd for hind tn the C. & W. Railway
he congratulated the  I Invent ment   fnr
having in this followed the example of
the bile   Government,   thus they were
sure   to  be   right.    In regard    to   the
opening of Omineoa country,  be said
had il not   heen   tin.   attitude   ol   the
present Government  two years ago,
when m Opposition, there would   have
heen a railway in operation there now.
Returning tn the attaok mi the financial policy he rated the Government
for repudiation of their obligations and
for having hrnught ciiuitiil and labor
Into   competition.    The   grunt   of one
million dollars towards the coat nf tlm
Pacific oable, was ridiculed. Hero he
said the Province cnnld not arise a
loan, could not build its roads nr do
other necessary works, yet  they  wore
to he nskeil tn llimw away a million
dollar! fnr a little  glory,     lice ensured
the Government  for the omission of

dny that there was- little warrant for
the exultation which followed tho an
nounoement of repulse of Itoers. The
remarkable revolution in Bool tactics
is another surprise for the British,
who had not reckoned on Ladysmith
being subjected tu such a courageous
assault. In some quarters it is considered unaccountable that General Boiler

advices from the United Slates Consul Macrtini at Pretoria show that m
the disbursement of funds sent by the
Hritish Government for the comfort of
British prisoners he was held by the
Boer Governmeut under ,i distinci
stipulation that he was acting unofficially. This attitude of the Transvaal
Government is believed to hnve been
based on a desire to force Great Biii-
ain into some recognition of the status
of the South African Republics. There
is untiling in Macmm's report which
throws the faintest light upon his inexplicable actum in leaving his post in

"It is in In- hoped, "said tho retiring
President ol the Board of Trade, in
the animal tepurl lead at the mceling
nn Monday night, "that the incoming Mayor aud Council will take in
hand the election of a municipal
building which will he a credit to Nel
Ron, and at the same time provide
therein suitable accommodation for a
combined Board of Trade room, Museum of Minerals, and more adequate
quarters fnr the Public Free Library.
which lias been such a success."
Only those win, are in direct daily
contnoi with matters of municipal administration know the great need of
additional accommodation. The publio business has entirely outgrown the
present bnilding. Aid. Beer had a
lively sense nf this necessity, and last
summer persuaded tin- Connoil to submit a by-law for obtaining money to
provide more fitting accommodation.
The by-law wus defeated by a small
majority, not, we believe, because the
ratepayers objected tn the expenditure
of money for that purpose, but because
tiny thought lie scheme did not go
far enough. A larger bnilding, such
as thai recommended liy (he Board nf
Trade,wonld have received the popular
support, Backed by lhe influence of
this representative body nf the business
men if the (.'ity. and encouraged by
the favorable vote ..f last summer, it
is not inn nineli t.t expect that the in
enming Council will take action in tbe
Provided, that is. that a progressive
Connoil, whose members have no fish
nf then own to fry nut arc devoted entirely tn the public service, shall lie
elected. If the ratepayers return Mr.
Houston, with three Aldermen who
will give him Mr. Seinlin's working
majority, tbere will   be nn  new City
Hall.     We say tliis ou the authority nf
Mr. Houston's outspoken and unqualified opposition to tlie more modes!
scheme nf last summer. He then gave
it to he understood that he was oppos-
eil in any new building, big nr little.
There is also a paragraph in his address tn tlie electors, m which he says
he will n.it consent tn the issue of debenture.-, excepting fnr public wniks
that will yield a revenue. A City
Hall will 11.it produce n revenue; and
a- Nelson intepayers nf ten, fifteen,
and twenty years hence would enjoy
ns advantages 1,, th" Bftme extent as
the present noes, it would be manifestly alt,ml and unjust tn make cur-
lent level,tie bear the whole of the
est. Witli Mr. Houston in control,
therefore, the recommendation of the
Board ..! Trail.' would count for little.
Iml 1. tins fearfully and wonderfully
constituted Individual would take a
fiendish deli.in in disappointing the
Board of .rade aim treating Its recommendation with contempt. That
body has grown nut of his reuch. Ab
long a- he oonld bully it and direct it,
and play his little part as autocrat, he
VVBI gracious enough   to regard il Willi

Board ol   Tradt  absolutely   refuses  to

neither forget noi forgive, if the bus

No newspaper published in British

The Miner published eight columns of

They weie no doubt greatly surprised
to learn on the following day that defeat in British Columbia dons not mean
dispatch. Mr. Bemlin and his merry
men are superior to adverse voles, and
tiave'a supreme contempt for ties.

Houston to answer his questions They

A Woman's Home.
The problem of building a home is ono
that cannot be winked with rules. A
woman's home is the perfection of her
temperament. It can be nothing more;
it is notliin.. less, and the Booner she
broadens her mini! mid deepens her heart
the Soulier she will live happily. But if
she goes around smiling like a Cheshire
cat and putting in her valuable time trying to he a benediction while her husband and children are worrying through
life on dried meats nnd linker's bread
she will iimi ilini a little more housekeeping nni a little less loin; making
would iiii|trti\e matters materially. To
live happily any place, in a home or out
of it, requires a constant drain upon one's
common sense, and if n young woman
taking up her trade as a home builder ox-
peels to become a success hy reading the
"helpful hints to yoiiug wives" she is
making a mistake. She would spend her
time better reading the advertisements
in the hack of the magazine, finding Important hut not soul stirring facts about
soaps, baking powder, linen, silver, stove
und Hour polishes and canned goods, for
these things are indeed nf the earth
earthy; hut, although David Harum says
it mini's heart lies close to his breeches
pocket, there is no denying lhe Important
fact iimi un easily accessible gateway
thereto is found about three inches uhovn
ti is collar button.���Elmira Telegram.

Although     many     jewelers     advertise
"something new iu rings," the fact remains Hint they nre hut slight variations
of lhe styles ia vogue at the time Moses
piloted the children of Israel out of the ;
honii.i.e of Egypt.    Kings nre alluded In '
in lhe Bible in the hooks of Qenesls and
Exodus.    They have heen found among
the relics of prehistoric races,  the stone
age, the bronze age and the age of the I
mound   huilders.     Herodotus   mentions
ii,..!   the  Babylonians  wore  them,  and !
from Asia lliey probably were introduced
into Greece.
The rings worn in early times were not
purely ornamental, hut had their significance as signet rings.    A king's niessen- I

the king's signet as authority was obeyed !
Implicitly.   The Romans hud u marriage

mentions n magic ring possessed hy King
Solomou, of which the .lews und Mohammedans  have  abundant  traditions.    It
wns hy means of this ring as a talisman
of wisdom und power that Solomon wus
enabled to perform those wonderful nets
and   accomplish   those   vast   enterprises
that have made his name so celebrated \

Inter .tomans wore a profusion of rings,

The arrangement ot lite ltuir in Hie
nape or the neck is one which creates
.rent diiliiiilties in milliner; matters.
Nothing is more terrible or disfiguring 10
the contour of the fine than 11 ���np between the crown of the hut and the
coils Of the hair. Yet many, many girls
are to he seen wli.i allow themselves to
lie stn-h objects.
A veil brought around thickly under
the chin and tied above the lirito somewhat mitigates the evil, but it exists,
nevertheless, aud another one attendant
on it���viz, the angle al which the hat is
worn, settinij: In nl.-..lately 11 straight
line across the  bead,  aud  coming  low
down  on  the  forel d,   with   the   result
that becomtngness is reduced to a minium ni.
The angle for the hut when the coiffure
Is low is sli.htly nfT the forehead when
the (-(iiiiii, now sn mm It in viiguo, is inserted at the base of the crown coils.
Then ihe lint rips sli.litly downward.
Another method of disguising ihe vacuum between the crown ami coiffure ii 'o
have a hnlf circle of Bowers, preferably
crush roses, beneath lhe brim! but this
is only when ihe hut is nf u fnncy straw,

It was fnntitl ueoessary to cut the
clips witli a cold chisel before th. body
coitlil be released, anil sn gre&t was the
strain that when this was done Ihe
cable leaped forward abont three (eel.
The victim hail placed his blankets in
the bottom of the bucket, and was
Bitting on them with cue hand in his
breast pocket, tho arm ouoircling the
handle, He had evidently gone all nn-
Buspeotingly to his death. About no
feel lower down Hacks !n the snow
showed where he hart climbed Into ths
bucket by the aid of a stump, The
tramway men ihiuk Unit, not understanding how to ride in a bnoket, he
allowed  it to  Bwing  with the  result
that it cot twisted on lo the wheel
which pulled in both bucket nnd man.
The body is terribly crushed and the

The Most Amusing Perforrnan
Seen in Nelson.
Professor McKwen _r.ve his Becond
performance in the Opera House last
night lieforo a crowded audience.
There was no doubt about the BncoesB
of the entertainment, the audience literally Bcroamed with laughter nil
through, some seeming to oomu dangerously ncir hysterics. Por unadulterated Bide-splittiug fun nothing in
Nelsiui at any rat".has evt r approaobed
the show last night, The professor's
hypnotic performances are not merely
amnslng however. They arc also in-
slrnctivo. He ceitainly seems to have
mastered many of the secrets of psychology.
After a few Introductory temarks
lb" professor proceeded to put about
fifteen gentlemen, Who had come upon
stage, into the hypnotic state and all
but two were successfully mesmerised.
After several preliminary experiments
the subjects were told to clasp their
hands together. It wns no sooner done
than thev were tightly looked, and
funny to n degree were the antics they
went through trying In get them apart.
N'ext they were told tn shout out ti eir
first names, but not a Bonnd oonld they
inter, and the audience roared as the
thirteen, iinfottnnntes conscientiously
endeavored with frantic monthings to
call out Iheir names. After nn inter
mission the subjects were aRtiln mes
iui-1'i/.i'ri and were |o|d that on awaking a very funny story wonld necur t.t
tbom, Sure inough it the wold 'three
the thirteen were iu ennvtilsions of
laughter, slapnini! Iheir thighs and
sunt" even lulling   n'f Iheir   chairs   in
tlm extremity of thoir mirth.   Sn comical w'tis tins   that   til.   inidieneo   wns
si'im reiiee I to  a'l   almost similar con
tittmn.   Then they got the toothache,
and the pain shifted downwards nnd
they writhed on the dusty stage    '.    th
fltomaoh nehe, One man who only
had live Augers on one hand wished to
collect   the two  'Hissing ones from  n
in.in in Ih" ini'ii.     He was brought
tu ju-i iti time to prevent n fight Two

Dominion Government, stating that
the mine owners iii this district, were
Importing alien miners and refusing
work at the same wages to Canadian

statement to the Government upon this
question, why he did not appear tin-

To Hie Citizens of Nelson :
Iii response to numermia requests
from business men, properly owueis
and ifttepayers, I 0I1V1 myst If as a candidate for Mayor of the city of Nelson
at the approaching Municipal Elections.
Briefly stated, ray platform is as follows :
If elected it will be my earnest endeavor to assist in more firmly establishing Nelson ns the wholesale distributing centre of the Kootenay Country
���the position for whioh she has been
so admirably designed by nature.
In furtherance ot this idea. 1 will
continue my consistent advocacy 1 t' the
construction of a wharf which will
meet present and future requirements
of the wholesale and other bnsinebs interests.
I believe that tho City lias reached
that stage when permanent street improvements have become an absolute
necessity and that the, cost should he
met, as far as feasible, from onrrenr
revenue and should the Citizens see lit
to entrust mc with tho nltlce of Mayor,
it will be my aim to carry out a well
devised system of street improvements.
It will be ray policy to oppose the
borrowing of money unless the same be
used for the increase or establishment
of Pnblio Works producing a revenue
to the Taxpayers,
I am opposed to any increase in the
salary of Mayor, which would necessarily involve 11 redaction in salaries
now paid an efficient stall' of officials,
or an increased burden to the taxpayers.
I am strongly in favor of maintaining the Eire Department in a position
of thorough effloienoy and would advise tbe adoption of modern equip
intuits including a Pile Alarm System
and the purchase of a chemical engine
which wonld effect a reduction in all
Fire Insurance.
It will be mv consistent policy to
safeguard the taxpayers against any
attempts on the part of corporate hod-
j ies, carrying on business in Nelson, to
encroach upon the rights oi tho Citizens.
In my opinion a Buffioieut amount
of monev should be expended upon the
Purks "f tho City so that they will provide the Citizens with recreation
grounds and opportunities for healthful
On all municipal works mv policy
will be to employ bona-fldo residents of
Nelson  and  to  maintain  tbe  publio
staiiilar I rale of   wages
I believe that   the Publio Schools in
Nelson should be under the control  of
the City and that e��ery   effort   should

What Was Done During the
Past Year-
Miles of Water Mains, Sewers ami Sidewalks Were Laid   Many Streets
Oponed Up.
At tlie meeting ol the Oity Council
tins afternoon Mr A. L. MoOnlloob,
<*ity Engiueer will present his annual
report giving n cletailerl account of the
work (lone in his department during
tho year. Appended is a synopsis of
the report. :
Waterworks���During the winter of
:898-99 it was found .thabthe water
supply from Anderson Creek through
the wooden flume with a repetition of
the extreme cold of last winter would
he inadequate and. on nccouut of the
liniblity of the flume freezing up. is a
very inefficient supply. To remedy
these defects a 14-inch steel conduit
main was laid during the past foil up
Cotton-wood Owek, and providing kthe
City with a duplicate water supply.aud
guaranteeing an adequate supply under nil conditions. During the past
year the water mains that were frozen
last winter have heen protected from
frost. Of the old '.-inch mains _,-lM)
feet have beon taken up and relaid
with l-iuch and Clinch pipe.
There has been laid dnring 1899 the
following mains:
Pourtcen-iuch conduit up Cottonwood Creek.
Six *nch���Victoria from Stanley to
Josephine; Front Street from Hall
Street to Riblet's Foundry.
Four-inch main���Front, from ends
of pipe to City limits; Lake, Cedar tn

Houston, Stanley to east of Ward;
Two-inch pipe���Hoover Btreet, from
end of pipe tu Hall; Hall, from Hoover
northerly ; Kootenay. from eud of pipe
to Mill Street; Mill, from Kootenay to
Mailson's House. Total water main
laid during 1899,   17,870 feet.
Summary of water mains laid to
Fourteen-inch main, 10,279 Hn. feet;
12-inch, '.Oil; Hi-inch, 1,5511; K-inrh,

mains still it, use. 1,527. Total length
uf water mains, ."i0,770 Hn. feet or 9.6
miles. Total number of hydrants in
use In; total number of WHter services
put in during 1899, _46,
During the pnst year the following
sewers bave been laid: Eighteen-inch
pipe sewel un Ward.
Twelve-inch pipe on Ward; Silica,
from Ward easterly on alley block 83
and part 84; Latimer from brewery to
Nine-Inch sewers���On lane, block 84
tn Hall Street.
Eight-inch sewers���Kootenay, from
Baker to Silica; Silica, Kootenay to

Kootenay,   from Mines Road southerly
tion to Jan. I, mod, 240; total number
Of hnuses connected to sewers, 262.
Electric lighting���During the winter of 1S98-99 the water power at the
electric power station was Inadequate
for tbe then requirements. To increase
the power a wooden box flume 8(1.20,
and '.1,200 feet long was constructed
from Whitewater Creek, a tributary
of the Salmon River,to the Cottonwood
Lake watershed.
At the power station a 2,B00 light,
alternating dynamo and a 230 horsepower Feltou water wheel was intsall-
ed and a general rearrangement of the
machinery at the power house -was
The dynamo capacity is now equal
to 5,000 lights, the maximum number
of lights iu use at anyone time at pres
ent being 8,100.
To fully utilize the water available
from Whitewater Creek it will probably be necessary to store the day flow
at Cottonwood Lake which can he done
at very small expense.
During the coining year the electric
light day should be very greatly improved.
During the past summer some feeder
lines were added to improve the light
in the business portion of the City,
hut outside of this practically no street
wiring was done during 1MIS or 18I11).
It will be necessary during 1900 to extend the wiring to the easterly portion
of the City, viz , Water, Lake, Victoria, Silica, Carbonate and Mill
Strefts and also some portions of Addition A.
Something must also he done in the
way of street lighting on the portion
of the City on 'he alternating system,
as this part of the ('itv is now without street lights.
I strongly recommend the use of
meters on all services as their uso will
check the indiscriminate burning of
lights at all hours, and will increase
the capacity of the plant hy probably
80 pet cent.
Forty-three meters have been ordered
for the larger consumers and 1 hope to
have these meters installed in the
course of a few weens.
Sidewalks���The following is a summary of the sidewalks built during
1899: Twelve-feet wide, Oil) feet: Id
feet. 1.2(0; 8-foot, 1121 ; 0 foot. 7,075;
4-foot, 5,940; 8--OO.,8,_-0. Total length
of sidewalk building 1899, in,(i:jii Ilu
eal feet, or 8.6 miles.
Street Work���During the year a

The following letter has been leceiv
ed from Mr. R. 11.    Eaton at  Calgary,
and will be read with .interest   by his
numerous friends:
Calgary, Jan. 5. 1900,
My Dear Sims: Was very glad to
got your note of 31st December and
wish to think Nelson boys for the
very gisul feeling show and hearty wishes expressed for my bon voyage and
safe return, also for the very substantial presents and purse forwardid
here. You will no doubt be glad tu
leiirn that five Nelson men have been
acoopted to say nothing of the dog. A
few more might have heeu accepted
bad they been on the ground although
large numbers nf gttoil men hove been
refused. The R. C. boys who have
been accepted   here to date are Hruwn,
(Special Correspondence of The Miner)
Washington. D. ('., Jan. 5 ���Popular
feeling in regard to the Boer war is
rapidly veering around in this conn-
try. Despite misleading statements
to the contrary continually published
iu Canada and Great Britain, public
sentiment here, heretofore, has always
been on tha side of the Boers both
beoause they constitute a so-culle.1l Republic and because of the disproportionate size of the conibatauls. But
this feeling has been somewhat like
that of a man who sees his hroth��r engaged in a fight of which he does not
approve. He* would not be torry if the
brother got pretty well punched to
tench hint nol |.i be bo hasty the next
time, hut he would also feel much disposed tu take oil' his coat and go in, i
there seemed to be any danger of the
brother getting the worst nf it. During our war with Spain, Canada seemed to feel about the same way. It considered   that   we were   altogether   too
e,iel;y and wanted us punished,bat not
As long as England is merely lighting the Beors, she will meet with lots
of opposition iu this country, but as
soon us any L'uropean power attempts
to chip in, the world will be astonished by the depth of pro-English sentiment that will develop in this country. Blood is a good deal tblokei than
wnter.and most Amerioana realise that
the preservation ol their own race ascendency depends "U the ultimate vie-
lory tif Euglanu.
The close relationship between this
country and England was siiown at
the recent New Year's reception at the
White House when the entire British
embassy was present, The Right
Honorable Lord Pauncefote, of Preston. G. C. H , O. M. C .  dean of   the
iiiplnniaiic corps, was accompanied by
Lady Paiincfot and their four daughters I Mr. Gerald A. Lowtber, titst secretary : Captain Charles L. Ottley, R.
N., and Mrs Ottley; Lieutenant Colonel A. H. Lee, It. A . military attache, nun Mrs. Lee, his American
bride; Mr. C N. E. Eliot, C. 13., second secretary; Mr. W. G. Max Mailer,
second secretary; Mr. Robeit Brora
ley and Mr. Arthur E. O. Humphreys
Owen, liniinrary attaches.
The good feeling between the two
Countries   was ulso emphasised by   the
pleasure thai was expressed at the fact
Ihat Mr. Kli.it, of the embassy, hud recently bull tie.ib' a Knight uf the order
of file fighting saints,   St.  Michael and
St. George. Mr. Eliot's management
of the Snmonn difficulty, when he rep.
resnted England as commissioner to
those islands last winter, was socb as
tu win fur him the warmest otticml
commendation of the United states
Government, and to make him popular through) ut the loontry.
A   g-ioti many Onundinns  turn no at
Washington from time  io time.   The
latest arrival Is Mi. Edward McKen.lel
of Mouttoal. who was somewhat hiiiuh- ���
ed when asked what Canada thought uf |
the alleged   Fenian   invasion  of   that
"It i-nil new spa pel talk,' he said,
"and Canadians am losing no sleep on
account   of   it.    We know from   what
it will prevent anv European nation
from taking parr, no matter how
much   they     may wish tu do 80,"
U. S. Consul Almar I-'. Dickson, has
reported to tho State Department hare
that a company has been formed at
Gaspe Basin, Quebec, lo carry ou the
nil boring business there. The consul
docs not expect much from the venture, as he says tiutt !>:! wells have
been sunk in the last fen years, am!
that in ouly one has nil been found,
and in that one il has been exhautsed,
'l�� concludes: "I have conversed
with several oil experts during tin
past five years, and they inform me
that the sand and gravel here nre not
suited to oil, ami thai the dip of the
rock is altogether wro g. This, they
say, should be ubout 50 feet to the
mile, aud it is about 1,000 feet to the
mile in most places where wells have
been put down in this vicinity."
Representative Shacklefurii. of Missouri, has introduced into Congress ������>
bill placing on the free list all wood
pulp suitable for or adapted to the
manufacture of printing paper, and
all printing paper suitable for or
adapted to the pi in ting of newspapers, periodicals, oi hooks. Wood pulp
is extensively manufactured in Canada.
Information as to the riches of Cape
Nome in Alaska, conitnues to come
in. The latest arrival from that part
of the world is K. M. Jackson, who
says that the spot is just as rich in
gold as it has been represented, and by
next summer there will be 25,000
people at work there. He thinks that
the resources of Ihe locality have
scarcely been snatched ovei, and that
there aie untold millions yet to be
taken from Mother Earth.
