WARM MEETING
AT REVELSTOKE
McKane Denounces Galllher
as  a  Political
Judas,
Galllher Acknowledges Signing the Eight-Hour
Petition.
Revelstoke,   B. ,C, Nov.   27.���There
was   a   great  meeting   held here last
night.    After     refusing    to    attend,
Messrs.   Oalllher and Ross, from   Regina, were enrried to the meeting and
allowed one hour  and  ten minutes to
speak.    McKane   in   reply  spoke  one
[hour nnd thirty minutes, showing  up
Itlie  broken   pledges,   corruption, nnd
���disloyalty  of  Tarte.    He   proved and
pmade llitlllhor admit that he had sign-
'ed   the  petition   against  tho    eiglit-
hour law.    Oalllher claimed   that  he
was  forced to sign it by  the   Dundee
Mining Co.,nnd had signed it as Vice-
President of this company.    His heart
was  not   in    it,     however.    McKane
then  pronounced   him    a  "political
Judas" and a traitor to   the   working
men.
"While grasping their hands in
friendship he stabbed them to the
heart."
F. J. Deane then tried to break up
the meeting but McKane called him
down with a thud. Pointing at Deane
he exclaimed:
"Mr. Chinese Secretary Deane, you
, are a political brat; it would be bet-
[ ier for you to ba earning your salary
at the Chinese Legation than trying
to break up political meetings in this
great riding." This brought down
tbe houso ns Deane is greatly disliked
here.
McKane also stated that the committee to investigate tbe charge
against Oalliher was adjourned at the
request of J. B. McArthur, chairman
of the Liberal executive, who stated
that Oalliher could not be communicated with as he (Oalliher) was in
Kelowna. This wos unworthy of Mr.
Arthur as Galliher was here from 8
o'clock   In the morning.
McKane is a strong forceful speaker
nnd it was entirely his meeting.
Great cheers were given for ' 'McKane!
Our next member,'' at the conclusion
of the.meeting.
NEEDS BROTHER'S CONSENT.
Countess Castellane Cannot Incur
fresh Debts Against Her Income.
New York, Nov. 21. ���Judge Dillon,
counsel for the Gould family made today the following statement concerning the suit of the London bric-a-brac
.dealer. "The Countess de Castellane
is not entitled to any part of the capital or principal sum of tne estate of
her father, as the statement of the
plaintiff seem to imply. The will of
Mr. Gould provides in substance that
the income is to be a trust fund in
the hands of the trustees to be appointed for the support and maintenance of his daughter and that she cannot anticipate or dispose of any part
of that Income until it is netually received by her, and until she receives
tit she shall not be liable for her debts
fair those of her husband, and undoubtedly the trustees will feel it to be
their duty to have this provision in
the will carried out in its full extent
or as far as possible. She has no control nor has the court any control over
the principal sum which goes to her
children. In tho statement it is said
the creditors claimed at tho proceedings in Paris, whereby Mr. George
Gould was appointed guardian for his
Bister, that tho idea of the Gould
family was tc. get possession of the
income of the Countess de Castellane
and force her creditors to settle on
thoir terms. This is obviously a mistake as the only effect of that proceeding is to prevent her from incurring
fresh obligations without the consent
of her brother.
VANCOUVER   ISLAND'S SAND.
Victoria, Nov. 27.���Word hns just
been received hero by the placer company operating at Wreck Bay, on
the West Coast of Vanoouvor Island,
that a sample of their black sand sent
to the World's fair nt Paris has received the highest award over ull competitors.   Regular clean-tips  are be
ing made on the ground, and every
bout from tho West coast brings down
a substantial sack of tho yellow dust
as evidence that there is plenty behind the suniplo. It is thought hern
that such an award in competition
with numerous samples from all parts
of tho world will do much toward
turning the attention of capital in
this direction. The company at Wreck
liny are simply shovelling the sand
into their placer machines, and so
far there appears to be any quantity of
the pay dirt. As soon as the cold
snap is over the company will put on
from 10 to SO mon, and largely increase the output.
LANDS FOR SETTLERS.

deu and Receiver Wells have given

NO FALSE MERCY.
Nor Paltering With Dying Embers of
Hoer Rebellion.
London, Nov. 27.���The Rt. Hon.
Robert. Wm. Hanbury,President of the
Board of Agriculture, addressing his
constituents in Prestpn last evening,
and referring to Mr. Kruger'fl complaint of "British barbarism" said,

dying embers of the Boer rebellion,
for rebellion it now is, and it must be
stamped out vigorously."
BIG GAME GOING FAST.
Miners Complain of Slaughter of
Moose and Caribou.
Vancouver, Nov. 27.���The big game
of the Yukon Valley is being exterminated by that species of self-styled
sportsman who kills merely for the
love of slaughter. Just as the American bison vanished before the hordes
of hunters from the East and from
Europe, so are tho moose and caribou
of the interior of Alaska becoming extinct before the rillcs of pleasure
seekers. Returning prospectors and
miners who hnve spent years seeking
gold along the tributaries of the Yukon state that while in former days
they were able to depend in a measure
on'.the game of the country for subsistence in timo of sparse provisions,
they are no longer able to add any
fresh meat to their winter's supply
beyond a few ptarmigan or hares.
MORE NEW CASES.
Nannimo, B. C, Nov. 27.���There
are several more smallpox cases in

have been promptly sent to the Isolation Hospital, near Departure Bay.
Two other victims reside at Extension, whence they came by the stage
ere being discovered to be suffering
from the disease. Stringent precautions against the spread of contagion
have been adopted, but there will
certainly be other cases, ns tho laBt
discovered sufferers have been going
to and fro amongst mon,whilst affected by the disease.

GEORGE BIGEL0W
18 FIRE CHIEF
Mayor Houston Suspends Chief Thompson
and Puts an Old-Timer in His Place.
A Case of Spite-Thompson
Will Be Reinstated.
OTTER SEASON POOR.
Vnncouver, Nov. 27.���Reports from
the North state that the sea otter season off Alaska has this year proved
rather a failure. The Yakutat Indians obtnined no skins, nnd the few
schooners engaged only secured about
seven sklni each,
The trouble which developed at the
City Council last evening between
Mayor Houston and the members of
the NelBon Volunteer Firo Brigade
culminated this morning in the dismissal of Chief Thompson and the appointment of George Bigelow in his
place.
It was the fulfillment of a threat
made by the Mayor at the meeting of
the Council last night, and would have
resulted, had it not been for the loyalty to the City of the members of the
brigade, in leaving Nelson with no
fire department beyond George Bigelow as chief and one member of the
department who chooses to stand with
the Mayor.
Tho story of the trouble dates back
to October 2. On that day Mayor
IIo_ston informed Chief Thompson
that thereafter he would send in all
practice alarms. From that until the
present time the Mayor sent in but
one alarm. 11ns the men objected to.
On November 15, when Chief Thompson was out of the City, the members
of the brigade met and appointed a
committee to wait upon the Mayor
and City Council. This committee,
composed of Messrs. George W. Steele,
F. J. Bradley and C. I. Archibald, attended the Council meeting last
night and handed to the City Clerk
the following:
"To the Mayor and City Council���
On the Beco_d of October last Chief
Thompson notified the members of the
Nelson Volunteer Firo Brigade that
thereafter all practices would be nt
the cull of the Mayor. At a regular
meeting of the Nelson Volunteer Fire
Brigade the undersigned wero appointed a committee to interview the
Mayor and City Council and place before them this petition: That the
Nelson Volunteer Fire Brigade be
granted their regular weekly practice
at $2.50 per man per week and also
82.50 per man for each alarm."
The petition was handed by the
Clerk to the Mayor, who read it, evidently very much against his will.
Without asking tbe wishes of the
Council His Worship then laid it aside
and proceeded with the other business. Mr. Bradley of the delegation,
asked if the delegation could be heard.
Mayor Houston took the matter in
his own hands again and refused the
delegation a hearing. In his usual insulting way he stated that there was
a "clique" at the Fire Hall working
against him. He wanted them to understand that he was prepared to fight
to a finish. He would Bhow them
that the fire brigade could not run the
City.
Aid. Arthui moved,seconded by Aid.
Morrison, that the delegation be
heard, but Mayor Houston refused to
put the motion. Aid. Arthur then
moved an appeal from the ruling of
the chair and the chair was not sustained. Mr. Steele then addressed
the Council. The flro brigade simply
wanted the City to keep its promise
with them. When the brigade wns
formed the men were grunted one
practice a week at $2.50 each a call
and $2.50 per man for every other
call. Mr. Bradley also attempted to
address the Council but was ordered
to sit down by Mayor Houston because
ho did not confine his remarks to Ills
Worship. In his paper this morning,
the Mayor refers to Mr. Bradley's remarks as unparliamentary, whereas
the Mayor himself was the only one
in the Council chamber who used unparliamentary language.
After the delegation had been heard
Aid. Hall moved,seconded by Aid. Arthur, that a committee consisting of
Aid. Hall, Arthur and Irvine be appointed to inquire into the matter
with Instructions to icport nt the next
Council meeting. The motion prevailed.
Mayor Houston then remarked that
there would probably be a cleaning
out of the  department  the next day.
Some of the men would remain and
the City would get   along with them.
George Steele ventured the remark
that if tho Mayor started that there
would bo but one man left in tho department.
"Well, we'll get along with that
one," exclaimed the Mayor, as he ran
his fingers through his hair and
scowled at everyone in sight.
Then the delegation left.
At 11:30 this niorniug when the
majority of the members of the brigade were at the Fire Hall, Mayor
Houston appeared, accompanied by
George Bigelow. His Worship called
Chief Thompson and notified him of
his suspension and told the members
of the brigade that Mr. Bigelow
would hereafter bo their Chief. Then
His Worship left.
That the members of the brigade are
vory much wrought up over the action of tho Mayor is putting it mildly.
They did not, however, leave the fire
hall. They met informally and decided lo retain their places in tho department nnd in ease of an alarm to
follow the Instructions of Chief
Thompson and^no ono else.
"Bigelow can go to the fires if he
likes." said one of tli em, "but we
will not recognize him as our chief."
The Alderman to a man are very
much opposed to the action of the
Mayor and at tho next meeting of the
Council they will reinstate Chief
Thompson. Aid. Irvine is particularly outspoken in_his disapproval of
ihe Mayor's action. He considers
the whole proceeding a disgrace to
the City and is determined that Chief
Thompson shall be again placed at the
head of the brigade. The other aldermen feel just exactly as does Aid.
Irvine and will give Mr. Houston to
understand that his bulldozing and
insulting tactics will not be submitted to.
2 The fireman do not understand
what Mayor Houston means when ho
refers to the existance of a "clique"
at the Fire Hall. One of them told
The Miner this morning that in tho
last municipal election fourteen of
the members of the department voted
for Mr. Houston and two against
him. In the Provincial election this
same fourteen votod for him.
"If he ever runs for oflice again,"
continued this fireman, "he will
lind that this same fourteen,with possibly one exception, will vote and
work against him. We have found
him to be all his enemies have ever
accused him of being."
SEARCH FOR ANDREE RELICS.
Professor Nuthorst to Fit Out an Expedition.
Stockholm, Nov. 27.���Professor
Nathorst has offered a reward of 000
crowns for each of the remaining 10
buoys taken by the Andree Arctic balloon expedition, lie is also taking
Bteps to fit out an expedition to search
tlio Iceland coast for wreckage of the

purpose, as he considers it tho only
manner in which the fate of Andree

bosses. That is what the fair Toronto Globe advocates when it ean do so
under cover.
THE VERY FAIR ORGAN.
Ever since The Toronto Globe came
under its present management it has
poBed as a scrupulously honest and
fair paper, and until it came under
its present management it was never
ready to take a baud in any game or
scheme that would bring grist to tho
party mill. Under the Browns it had
a conscience, and could see wrong and
tolly in its own party as well as in
Its opponents; and when it did see
them it did uot hesitate to condemn
them. Under Mr. Cameron, of Tho
London Advertiser, it was as true to
the traditions of the originul management as his milder and moro timid
nature would permit. But with the
advent of the present men came the
introduction of the new Liberalism,
with its canting and hypocrisy and
infidelity to principle. But we must
not forget, notwithstanding, that
The Globe is wondrously fair.
The usual election deposit for the
Opposition candidate in West Durham
was made by cheque instead of in
legal tender, as specided in tho Act.
The Returning-Officer accepted the
cheque and gave a receipt, but after
his election refused to certify to his
return on tho ground that the deposit
was not in accordance with the letter
of the law. There was a precisely
similar circumstance in connection
with the election of tho Liberal candidate in East Peterhoro, but the Returning-Officer in that instance declared him elected and made his return accordingly. There have been
other inBtnncoB of deposits made by
cheque, and the elections in every case
have been held to bo good. The Government have a safe majority, and
The Globe oau afford to be honest;
therefore it cornea out in strong articles, contending that the Conservative candidate in West Durham ought
to have been declared elected. What
could bo more beautiful than suoh
fairness?
In Nlpisaing the Returning-Officer
did not attend on the day of nomination ; he took it upon hiraBelt to postpone tho ceremony, and kept in hiding. The Conservative candidate and
his agent attended, however,and duly
filed with the oloction clerk the noces-
sary papers in the case. On the
strength of this formality, regularly
obsorvod in accordance with the proclamation of the writ. Mr. Klock is
taking proceedings In the courts to
have himself declared duly elected.
This Is a case with new features, aad
The Globo can see Hb way to an argument in support of tbo Return ing-
Ollleor. In the West Durham case, it
obsorves, tho majority of the doctors
voted for Mr. Thornton, and notwithstanding the irregularity of the deposit the voice of tho majority must
prevail. But In Nipissing "tbe election was postponed because the new
lists were not ready, and the old ones
were greatly inadequate." That Is
accepted as justifying the courso taken by the Returning-Officer. The
Globe knows, however, that tbo duties of a Returning-Officer are simply
ministerial, and thnt he hns no more
right or niitlinrity to postpone a nomination than has its own editor. He
Is not the judge of the voters' lists,
and It Is no business of his whether
they wero adequate or lnndequnte, or
whether thoy wore one year or ten
yeaisold. Ilin instruction was to accept nominations nt a certain hour on
a certain day. and afterwards to conduct the election in tho usual way,using such voters' lists ns the authorities may provide for the occasion. If
ho can postpone] a Domination on account of voters' lists, so may he on
account of rain, or because a bare ran
across bis path, or beoaUN lie did not
got his morning  Qtoba at tha   usual
time. To permit Mieli liberties with
the conduct of an aleotlon would be to
throw all duties nml formalities in
eonneetion with the exercise of tho
franchise   into the hands of the party]
The Ontario Government organs are
greatly distressed in mind over the
result of tho elections in that Province. Tlie condemnation of the Government was most pronounced, and
there is a feeling that no Administration can long survive with that
Province against it. An effort is
made, therefore, to show that the adverse vote was not mi decisive as it appears at first bluBh. Adding up all
the voteson ouch aide, and leaving out
Toronto, the Liberals had a slight
majority, although iu members the
liguros are, 52 Conservatives to 35
Liberals. This result is put down to
the gerrymander. It is not necessary
to question the figures, and they are
probably nearly right,but calculations
of that kind never prove anything. If
tho voice of a Province is to be expressed in its exact strength, the system of constituencies must be abolished and one general election held, giving to each man as many votes aB
there are members to be returned.
There is no other way to stifle the
voice of individual constituencies, or
to compel a voto according to the rule
of average.

reply. At a meeting at Vancouver the
other night he referred to this incident, Baying that he had informed
the House before he began his speech
that he must leave for the West at
once. And he continued: "What
was it that made him hurry West?
He had come out as a matter of fair
pay to a Grit partner of his, to enable
him to return to the 1J. E. I. Legislature and warm his seat for two days
in order to ennble him to continue to
hold it. And as a result of this act
he (Sir Hibbert) was obarged up and
down the country with cowardice."

NEW RATION TESTED.
Soldiers   Make   Good   Time   on  Condensed Food.
Captain. Fountain and Foster, of
the United States Regular Army, have
arrived at Fort Reno Okla., after a
torced march of 10 days across the
Kiowa and Comanche Indian reservation. Although the entire ration, as
furnished to them by the War Department, has not as yet been used up,
the experiment with the new emergency ration so far has been a success.
None of tho men have lost iu weight
and all have mado better time than
with the regular rations. This is
oue of the tests miiilo by the War De-
parVnent every five years in tho Indian reservation. The emergency rations were prepared under the direction of Captain Fountain, of the United States Army, and were put up in
Kansas City by packing houses there.
Each "ration," as one day's food is
called, weighs about one pound, and
the soldiers can carry eight days' rations as easily as they have heretofore
carried the one day's food. The rations are put up in cans about eight
Inches long. Each can contains three
cakes of sweet chocolate and three
cakes of food compound made up of
meats and bread. Each can also contains salt.pepper aud condensed milk.
The 35 troopers of Troop A who
marched on this emergency ration test
are all old timers in the service and
at firBt they did not like the manner
in which the War Department was
experimenting with them. After the
first day they found that the light
food agreed with them and that it
waa so rnuoh more convenient. The
old-time hardtack and baoon soon
grows to be distasteful, while the new
rations are always palatable. Tho
soldiers were not allowed to drink
coffee on this march, which was commenced from Fort Reno, in Oklahoma,
and ended at Fort Bill, in the Indian
Territory. The men beat the average
marching botween theso two points
by about one day's time. All are feeling in   fine spirits over the trip.
Captain Foster reports that there are
yet two more emergency rations to
teat and this will require perhapB all
of this week. The sweet chocolate
cakes will not be retained in the
emergency rations, as most of the
older men in the army soon grow
tired of anything sweet. In a report to
the W.ai Department Captain Foster
will probably recommend that the
chocolate be abolished. lie said today
at Fort Reno:
"I will report to the War Department that the emergency ration march
across the Indian reservation has
been successful, but I cannot sny that
I would recommend this kind of food
for a long campaign. If men only had
to march on it they could get along
all right. If they were required to
ii. li. and eat this ration at the same
time I think that it would grow very
monotonous. Men who have been
used to living at the forts, as these
have been doing, cau make better use
of the rations and this ia another reason why the test has been a success.
We have beon making more than 20
miles per day on an average. Of
course, a march depends a great deal
on the weather. My men have been
pretty well satisfied with this experiment, but I fear if they had to fight
Indians on the way they would not
like it so well. I think as a whole
the emergency ration as prepared,
however, J has been a great success.
The War Department can use it to advantage in many cases."

Indian Princelets nave Been Told
Where They Belong.
Lord Curzon, in his capacity of
Viceroy of India, has just issued a decree, which, for high-handed despotism, has never been exceeded by any
of his predecessors as Governor General,or indeed by nny European satrap
of .the Orient, writes the Marquiae de
Fontenay. Not that there is any fault
to find with the masterful young
ruler of the immense Indian empire,
with its teoming population of 300,-
000,000 or moro, for something of the
kind had become necessary In order
to combat a growing danger and evil.
The decree In question is nothing
more nor leas than an order that none
of the natlvo BovereignB of India, and
none of the natlvo ohiefs, are from
henceforth to quit their dominions,
or to visit Europe without having
previously aaked and obtained permls
glon from the Viceroy. Several no

Baroda, of Kapurthala.of Indoro.etc,

visiting Europe, leaving their states

In order that the Oovernment may
be in possession of definite information with which to supply those seeking investments in this Province, I
am instructed to invite particulars
from those who have properties for
sale, and who may feel disposed to
forward such particulars to this office
for the purpose in question.
In view of the proposed early re-organisation of the Agent General's
Offlce in London, England, tho desirability of having on file a list of
farms and other properties for sale,
with full and accurate detailB, is obvious. Properties submitted may include farms and farm lands, industrial or commercial concerns, timber
limits, water powers, or other enterprises affording opportunities for legitimate investment.
It is not proposed to recommend
properties to intending investors, but
to afford the fullest access to the classified lists and all available information connected therewith, and to place
enquirers in communication with the
owners.
The fullest particulars are desired
not only of the properties themselves,
but of the localities in which they
are situated, and the conditions
affecting them. For this purpose
printed schedules will, upon application, be forwarded to those desirous
of making sales.

Mrs. E. H. Thompson lias opened iu
the Victoria Hlock, above Teetzel's
drug store, a ladies hair dressing establishment. Mrs. Thompson has had
splendid training in the art of hair
dressing, shampooing, etc., having
been engaged in some of the leading
parlors of Eastern Canada and the
Eastern States. She believes there is a
field for a good ladies hair dressing
parlor in Nolson and if she meets with
success in the venture, promises to fit
up a parlor unsurpassed in British Columbia or Western Canada. She will
make a feature of dressing hair for
dances, parties, etc.
The Broughams are moving eastward, on their way to the Metropolitan, New York. The Savage-Gran

that there were no other flowers in
the wilderness, for there were a number, but she alone of all of them was
sufficiently hardy to rear her head

which the stage was filled. * * *
She has a robust contralto voice of
much sweetness, great carrying power
and a range that is remarkable. Whenever opportunity was given she used
it with such effect that sho literally

In fact, about tho only ono of the

Professor Alexander Entertained a
Large Audience Last Night.
The introductory lecture ou phrenology by Professor Alexander, at the
Opera House last night, was well attended and was thoroughly enjoyed
by the large audience who listened to
his remarks. In addition to being
thoroughly versed on his subject Professor Alexander possesses a fund of
humor that is of great assistance in entertaining an audience with a subject
thut if followed too closely might grow
monotonous to tho average hearer
from its scientific qualities. The lecture was closely followed throughout
and especially were the practical demonstrations enjoyed. Several well
known gentlemen consented to having
the Professor determine certain of
their qualities by an examination of
their crania. Kev. .1. H. White and
Messrs. J II. Wallace, Leonard Scott
and K. tl. Joy were the gentlemen in
question, and the Professor's remarks
caused a great deal of amusement
among their respective friends. Tonight Professor Alexander will give
another free lecture at the Opera
House.

rich men in United States Senate
made their fortune from mines. Senator Clark, of Montana, by odds the
richest man in Congress, worth anywhere from 8100,000,000 to twi.e thut,
made all his money in mines. Senator Hanna's 812,000,000 is largely derived from the iron mines. Senator
Jones of Nevada is worth 810,000,000
in gold nnd silver mines. Senator
Elkins of West Virginia, is rated at
87,000,000, mostly made in coal and
iron mining operations. McConnell,
from Seranton district, is the richest
man in the house. His wealth is estimated at 820,000,000 and was dug out
of coal mines in Pennsylvania.

GENUINE PATRIOTISM.
I.adies of Canada:
While statesmen and politicians argue the /.ollverein and differential
trade within the Empire (which they
will do while jaw displaces common
Bcnsc), settle this matter for yourselves.
Your brother colonists of Ceylon
and India are growers of pure teas.
Black and Green. Canadian and
United States importers supply yon
with 11,1100,000 pounds annually of
Japan teas, yet they know Japans are
nrtifically colored and adulteiated.
Let the knowledge of these facts nnd
tho sentiment of patriotic sisterhood
move you to  help the Hritish planter.
British-grown Black Teas hold the
Canadian market. Drinkers of Japan
tea should try the Greens now coming
on the market, and your dainty palates will approve them. Yes, we
hear your grocer's excuses; but insist.
Ladies can always get what they
want. Remember how you ran your
husband (o���well, do they still think
it Paradise? They certainly will if
you give them Ceylon and India green
ten. Hlue Kibbou. Monsoon nnd Saluda packets are now obtainable.
