Ninth Year.
IS OUT FOR MAYOR
there is none who desire to sit in the
city council in the minority. In nil
liklihood n meeting will ho held today
or tomorrow end a straight reform
ticket discussed.
COWICHAW TRUE TO
"Why is the voter's list kept so secret!"'asked a oitizen of the Minor
'yesterdny. "Why is it not open to
I publio inspection as othor provincial
I and Dominion   lists are?   It   wns   the

date for the Office.
THE VOTERS'LIST AGAIN
Oitj Olerk Refuses to Allow Citizens to
See it���Candidates for Alder-
manic Honors.
George Neelnnds, one of Nelson's
oldest and musjt respected citizens, hns
announced himself a candidate for the
mayornlity. Mr. Neelnnds takes this
action at the request of a number of
the leading business men of the oity,
who see 111 him one who would make
a strong rnn nud an efficient mayor.
On Tuesday several requisitions were
circulated nsking Mr. Neelnnds to become a oandidate nnd these were
readily signed. Yesterday upwards of
100 names of voters had been attached
to them. This was sufficient encouragement and Mr. Neelnnds immediately announced his candidacy. It is
significant that among those who signed tho requisitions nro nearly nil of the
retail merchants doing business en
Baker Street, and a great many old
resident who have heretofore been supporters of tho preseut Mayor. Men
who hnve fought Mr. Houston in previous enmpaigns nro now out for Mr.
Neelnnds.
"We want a change; we have had
quite euough of this." This is the
statement mot with everywhere when
the subject of the mayoralty is
broached and all of those SO expressing
themselves are agreed that Mr. Nee-
lands will mnko a good enndidnte,
aud, if elected, a proper executive.
Mr. Neelnnds, himself, when approached by a Nelson Daily Mimr
reporter yesterday, had little to say. It
was true he was a candidate and also
true that ho would remain in I be
field until tho ballots were counted.
Ho had been assured of loyal support
from a great ninny of tho best citizens
of tho city nud he believed be could be
elected. Former supporters of Mr.
Houston, ho said, had announced their
intention of coming to his (Neeland's)
support. This had lend to his determination to take the field.
"Evory good citizen will agree with
me," said Mr. Ncolands, "that we
have had euough of the present city
government. Whether I am elected or
not.a good sharp campaign will set the.
people thinking and will lead them to
a realization of the condition of civic
affairs. Thus my candidacy will have
it good effect in any event, and if it
only results in waking up tho people I
shall feel that I have at least done my
duty." 	
Tho only copy of the voters' list not
now in tho hands of tho official organ
of the City of Nolson is in the custody
of the Mayor of the city, notwithstanding the fnct that he has no more
right to so hold it than has any voter.
The law makes the city clerk the custodian of the list, and that official's
own word is takeu for the statement
that it is in the hands of tho mayor.
���Yesterday several citizens visited the
city clerk's cilice and asked that thoy
be shown the list und so fnr as a Nelson Daily Miner reporter could learn
not one of them was accommodated.
They wero simply told whether or
not they wero on tho list, aud this information was apppareutly gleaned by
the city clerk from reference to the
assessment rolls.
George Neelnnds who will lie n can-
didatn for mayor,was ono of those who
made application for a glance nt the
precious document. He was accorded
the siinie treatment as wero the others.
He was told he was on the list, bnt
further than that the city clerk would
not go. Mr. Noolauds wns also informed that he could not see the list;
that there was none in existence with
the exceptiou of that in the hands of
tho printer. This was, of course, uu-
truo and Mr. Strachan is himself authority for the statement that he had
handed to the mayor the original copy.
It appears, therefore, that until the
publication of the list the general public will bo compelled to remain iu tho
dark as to the names contained therein. 	
Several names have already been
mentioned of prospective candidates for
nldernianie honors, and.by tomorrow,
at least, there will undoubtedly be
somo avowed candidates. Those who
have been suggested aro all good men
but at their own request their names
will be withheld until they have determined whether or not they will enter the race. It has been found by
those who havo interested themselves
iu the matter a very hard task to prevail upon business men of good standing to become candidates. Those who
have been approached will allow their
names to be used only upon tho understanding that a good organization be
effected for campaign purposes aud
thnt a stroug fight, be made. They
argue thnt without this the entire reform  tloket conld not he eleoted and
which resulted in so much trouble aud
annoyance to the citizens, to say nothing of the expense necessarily attendant."
The followiug lettor has been received by The Miner from a gentleman
well known in tho city, but whose
name is withheld at bis own request:
Editor of The Minor:
Sir:���Your remarks about publishing the voters' list and the alleged refusal of the mayor to allow you to copy
and publish it free of charge, wero a
surprise to many of your readers this
morning. As a lato supporter of Mayor Houston and ouo who intended supporting him again, I took the trouble
of calling nt the clerk's office, nnd afterwards on the Mayor personally, for
a verification or otherwise of the report, and regret to say thnt they both
practically admitted the charge If I
am corroctly informed the voters' list,
as soou ns it is revised, is, according
to law, open to public inspection and
should be posted up in some publio
placo. Tho refusal of tho Mayor to al
low an inspection nntil his "official"
organ publishes it a few days before
the election, suggested that there is
something crooked going ou which au
early publication might exposet. At
all events a suspicion has been aroused
in the public mind and now everybody
wants to see the list. If the Mayor
has nothing to conceal, the sooner he
retraces this foolish and utterly unwise
step, tho sooner 1 o will put a stop to
the desertion of a good many old supporters who aro tired of suoh arbitrary
conduct on the part of a well paid ofi'i-
cial.
A HEAVY SENTENCE.
Now York, Dec. 28.���Win. P. Moore,

York nnd reported at the War Department, He came to resign his com ���
mission as officer of Iho volunteer
army preparatory to his return to pri-
i vate life.
Prisoners are Held as a Basis of
Negotiations With the United
States.
Washington, Deo. 28.���There iB a
good deal of anxiety in official circles
here over recent events at Iloilo. Two
ollicial despatches have been received
by the Slate and War Departments,
but it is impossible to gather from
them accurate knowledge as to the
conditions thoro. It is not even possible to learn whether insurgents or
Amerioan forces hnve taken the plnce.
This morning United Stntes Consul
Wrntt at Singapore cabled the States
Department: "Iloilo taken 24th.
Spanish fled to Borneo. ". This threw
otticinls into deeper doubt thnn before.
An American expedition which left
Manila to go to Iloilo with 2000 troops
and the warships Baltimore and Cnl-
lao, would scarcely hnve hud time to
reach Iloilo by the 24th., so the inference is thnt the insurg cuts nro in possession. Color is lent to this belief by
tho fnct reported in one telegram that
the Spnniards had retreated to a
strongly fortified town on the island
of Mindanao. This does not agree
with Pratt's statement that thoy fled
to Borneo. The fnct thnt the Spnniards have retrented at all, is construed
as indicating that the town wns ubnn-
ilonott to insurgents, Officials at the
War Department still decline to make
public Otis' telegram of yesterday.
but there is no doubt, thnt ho is meeting with great difficulty in his effort
to secure the release of Spanish prisoners held by Filipinos. It begins to
appear clear that a considerable element among Filipino leaders, probably
a majority, are disposed to use tlioso
unfortunate prisoners as n bnsis of negotiations with the Uuited States
government,naming relense conditional
upon certain mora or less import am
concessions demanded by them.
Just before noon a cablegram wns received from OtiB, which confirmed the
fears of nfficiuls ns to happenings at
Iloilo. Otis stated that the American
expedition reached that plnce too late,
tho insurgents having taken possession
of the city ou the 38th, 80 hours prior
to Col. Potter's arrival. Again
ildo's flag floats over the r'.'y, Otis
says the Spaniards have c..; mated all
stations in the Southern :������'. mds except Zamboangon, Mindanao, by orders, they say. from Madrid. Otis expects no further word from Iloilo for
four days owing to the' lin.1* of cable
communication. It is presumed thai
Otis will demand the surrender of Iloilo
into Ihe hands uud this demand may
at onco raise the issue between insurgents and tho American Government for possession of tho islands.
The Province of Iloilo is set down in
the ollicial directory as having a population of 472.000. and it is the seond
seaport iu importance in the Philippine group. -Theppnnish hnve chosen
a Btrong place for the concentration of
their troops in'tlie town of Zamboangon which is strongly fortified nud
possessed of considernblo natural
strength from a defensive point of
view.    It   is   uot doubted   that   they
will be able to maintain themselves for
an indefinite time against the insurgents, presuming thoy are not cut off
from obtaining supplies from the sea.
The town itself has a population of
21,000. .  ..

JUST MEN WILL AGREE
A  Oongressman-Eleot Thinks Americans
Must Accept Polygamy as Pure
and Good.
Now York Dec. 28.���According to
a despatch from Salt Lake Oity to the
Evening World Congressman-elect
Roberts,the Mormon against whoso assumption of a seat in Coneress there
has been raised a cry in soi e quarters,
says: If a time comes i.!en it is
necessary for me to d-fend myse!f I
shall bo there right on the spot, ;.;.d I
apprehend thut the members of Congress und the American people are
more liberal, broad-minded and generous than a few bigoted and contracted
preachers nf the Presbyterian ohnrob,
whose training, mode of lifa and trend
of thought, tdnd to unfit them for
practical life. Joseph Smith received
a commandment from the Lord to introduce our ordor of marriage into
the church and on the strength of that
revelation, and uot by reason of anything that is written in the Jewish
Scriptures, the Latter Day Saints
practiced plural marriage, Polygamy
is not adultery, for wero it so considered it would not bo allowed an inheritance in the Kingdom of Heaven, and
if polgumy is not adultery then it
an.,, be- <)...��� . : .,s a sin at nil. It
appears to me that modern Christuins
must cither learn to tolerate polygamy
or give up forever tho glorious hope of
resting in Abrnhnm's bosom. Thnt
which God approves, and so strikingly
approves, must be uot only not bad,
but positively good, pure and holy.
Notwithstanding this however, tho
hand of the Gentiles was so heavy
upon the people of the Lord thut in
bis mercy God permitted them to
cease therefrom from expediency
and, true to tbe pledge given by the
i burch. no polygamous marriages havo
since been celebrated by the church.
Bui not even the church can take away
; roin u man the wives it has already
Liiveii him. They are his for timo
,uid eternity, ami I think the great,
broad-minded and just American peo-
nle will not require a man to cast off
ihu wives he has, with whom ho lias
lived, not to abandon bis children."

lookiug to its destruction, und that is
not likley to bo obtained until human
nature becomes vastly better than it is
now. Tho Senato is not in the least
danger ol extinction, either through
The ('lobe or tbo politicians who take
its hostility seriously.
Tbis should comfort the Montreal
paper, or if it will not, it may find
something to relieve its apprehensions in a recent Ottawa despatch to
the Toronto organ, in which it is said,
speaking of the approaching session,
that no important Government measures had been announced nor was it
likely any wonld be brought down
The session is to bo a quiet one, devoted to routines almost entirely.
There will he uo Redistribution Bill
with its accompanying gerrymander,
which Tho Star has evidently been
drending for months pnst. But while
dreading, it has been strong in its confidence that the Senate would come the
Teslin contract dodge. With nothing important in contemplntion, there
is no room for conflict; uud conflict or
no conflict, the Semite will not be
abolished.

THE CITY   VOTERS' LIST.
There is no provision in the law
compelling the publication of the
municipal voters' list in the city of
Nelson. As the time for tho election
of a new Council was drawing near,
Tho Miner thought it would be of interest to citizens generally to know
who the voters were. Accordingly it
made application to the City Clerk for
permission to copy the list, a day or
two after the date fixed by law for its
completion. Our reporter was met
with the reply that it wus not ready.
What transpired afterwards is fully
recorded in yesterday's Miner. We
hope it has come to the notice of eveiy
citizen of Nelson who takes an interest in the proper and seemly administration of civic affairs. If other matters are conducted in the least approaching the remarkable situation
of things iu connection with the voters' list, thero will be general agreement among reflecting ratepayers
that tho time is fully ripe for a
change.
Since a year ago the population of
the town has largely increased. Hundreds of citizens are qualified as voters who wero not on tbe list last year.
Whether thoy are ou now there is no
means of knowing without n personal
visit to the office of the custodian of
tho list; uud eveu then they may not
ascertain, as tho Mayor has constituted
himself custodian aud carries the list
arouud in his coat pocket. Meanwhile
election day is drawing nigh, and no
one not persona grata to His Worship,
who thinks of offering as a candindato,
oan tell who the electors ure. This is
oue-mnn rule with n vengeance, and
how it cun be tolerated by a freo, intelligent people is even more wonderful than til3 fnct itself. The Miner
hus no desire to mix itself up iu local
municipal squabbles; hut it is sincerely anxious for such government of
tho city as will not bring roproacb upon it, aud for that reason alone it
calls attention to this incident of the
voter's list.
We learn from the Ottawa correspondent of tho Toronto Globe that
Parliament will not bo sumomned until March next. This may be accepted
ns authentic, even authorized, as tbo
Toronto Liberal paper is the chiet of
all tbe organs. Excuse is made for
the lateness of the session, when reully
none is required. The country approves the effort of tho Government to
settle nil matters in dispute with tbo
Uuited States, and Ministers cannot be
nt Washington and Ottawa at tho same
time, when negotiations began Inst
August, it wub no doubt expected tbe
business of the Commission would be
concluded before the Christmas holi-
dnys. It has not nppenred thnt it is
tho fuult of Sir Wilfrid Luurier thnt
they have extended beyond, and having engaged in them their abandon-
ment is scarcely possible until some
determination is reuched. That will
probably require another fortnight nt
lenst nfter the 5th proximo, and then
Ministers cun give their uttention to
prepurntions  for the session.
THE   SENATE.
Because tho Toronto Globe recently
repeated its attitude of hostility to the
very existence of the Senate, the Mon-
teral Star imagines some sinster design. Tho session is approaching, and
to say ou tbe eve of it that the Senato
ought to bo abolished can only mean
that the Government have in coutem-
plution somo wicked piece of legislation which they fear may como to
grief in the Upper Chamber. It is
in anticpatioii of Ibis,the Montreal paper intimates, thnt tho Globe is urging
abolition, in the hope of frightening
that body iuto   subjection.
The Star is too suspicious und too
imaginative. The Liberal organ in Toronto has amused itself for a great
many years past, in fact, ever since
the Senato became ho largoly Conservative iu its composition, in protesting
against its further existence aud calling on tho earth and tbo heavens to
swallow it up. Tins average citizen
who is convinced that the Senate is
prouo to go wrong is satisfied to ask
for some reform that will keep it in
tho staight path ; but no half measures
will coutont the Toronto Globe. Thut
paper demands that it be utterly exterminated. Why it does so is often the
source of much wonder. Nn oue connected with Tho Globe will ever live
to see the Senate legislated out of existence, and no one knows this better
than The Globe itself. There are several reasons why the Senato shall bo
retained, the first and best being thnt
tho Canadian people will not have it
otherwise. Whether or not a necessity, it is certainly a most desirable
and welcome, addition to the governmental niachinery, and the country
would not listen to ils abolition. Another reuson is that it could not bo
abolished excepting by Act of the Imperial Parliament, und in Britain they
hnve n lively appreciation of a secoin
Chamber. A third is that its own consent   would bo required to any  action
CURRENT COMMENT.
THE MORALS OP VICTORIA.
The end of another week finds this
great question in the same condition
exuetly as it wus when we began to
speak upon it. What is that condition'1 A board of police commissioners who aro of as much use in checking the enormities which are going on
iu the city ns an itinerant Italian's
trnyful of stucco images would bo in
fighting the battles of their owner's
country. A chief of polioe afraid to
do bis duty, a man lost to his opportunities; one who knows all about
those things, but will uot or can not
uct to put them down���n hat with n
budge.n blno uniform ; brass-buttoned,
fragged aud braided ; n mere, emtpy,
official name���chief of police. A people who have become so accustomed
to tho spectacle of vice in its coarsest
guise that their sense of propriety seems
to be dull and blunted beyond hope of
re-sharpening. An under-world with
the bridle off; boldly impudent from
much lettmg-ulone; taking full advantage of the do-nothing policy of the
authorities and tho apathy of the people; loud und gay in its banalities and
obscenities; sporting its chaplet of
shame in evory placo where ptioplo
congregate; mingling freely in those
Christmas tide assemblages of decent
folk, and sotting broad contrasts to
the chaste dignity of Victoria's iro-
manhood, with which it may be seen
cheek by jowl any hour of day in tbe
streets or in places of entertainment
���Victoria Times.
NOT A WHIT   TOO STRONG.
Tho Spanish Pence Commissioners
hnve gone home from Paris with their
doleful report of inevitable submission
to overmastering wrong. It can hardly
he oxpected that thoy and their compatriots should yet see that there is a
Rilver lining to the cloud and that the
last day of the Empire may be the
first day of a healthy nationality. One
is glad for their sakes to see that tbe
wrong which they resent most is that
which is dono their honor by the calumny about the Maine. If in this business anything OOUld be more revolting
than the iniquity it wus the infamy.
The epithet is surely not too strong
when it is applied to the reiteration,
for an infamous purpose, of n slander
of the foulest kind by those who arc
perfectly conscious nf its falsehood.
The consciousness of President McKinley is betrayed by his fullering pen,���
Tho Bystander.
BUT, THEN IT PLEASES THEM.
Thero is one point upon which there
is much ununimii.ity of opinion, and
it is that any one can run a newspaper better than tbo men engaged iu
tho business. No one over thinks it
proper to stop a grocer or a foundry
men or a tinsmith or a doctor or n
lnwyor on the street und find fault
with the way ho manages his business.
But tho grocer, the foundryinan, the
tinsmith, the doctor, tbe lawyer,
every man in tbe community, in fact,
and a goodly proportion of the women,
feel it to be their inalienable privilege
to tell newspaper men how they should
run their journals.���Victoria Colonist.
HOW IT   STRIKES   THEM.
The Bossland Record snys:   "It np-
poars that   Nelson is getting   tired   of
paying her Mayor 12000  a year, and it
is time.    The people aro   also desirous
of stripping him of a great deal of authority���given and   assumed���and it is
time." Por a place of Nelson's dinien-
Isionsand   certainly   its revenue,   tbe
salii'-y   of  18000 to its   Mayor will appear to till sensible people to  be   noth-
, | ing more nor less than a piece of gross
'extravagance, which should not be tolerated    for     a     moment.���Vancouver

Children and  Adults Suffer Alike-
Disease is Epidemio���No
Serious Oases.
-Tho
Measles haB been prevalent in Nelson for some months past uud during
the past six weeks has assumed the
proportions of an epidemio. Young
nnd old alike have been smitten,though
no cases have resulted fatally, and it
was in order, if possible to throw some
light on the origin and extent of the
epidemic, that a Nelson Daily Miner
reporter yesterday visited a number of
the Nelsou doctors. The theories as
to the origin of the epidemic were as
numerous as the doctors consulted, iu
fact it is probably impossible to assign
any single source to the malady. One
plausible theory of its origin, is that
it was communicated by the Indians of
Goat River, among whom an epidemio
broke out last July. As soon as the
prevalence of the disease among them
was known, they were sent back on
the reserve, though not before both
bucks and squaws witb the disease
showiug all over them, had mingled
freely for some time with the white
inhabitants of the vicinity.
One aoetor iu large practice said that
the first casos he knew of in town were
prospectors who had oome in trom
that section of the country, and he believed that they had caught it from the
Indians, aud hence, probaby, the epidemic in Nelson.
Another doctor, with large opportunities for observation, said that the first
case he knew of wus that of a family
who brought it with them from Spokane. He also knew of a ease about
the same time which came from the
coast. Iu fact that it is impossible to
pronounce nositively on the origin, is
the verdict of the doctors. The fact
that many people do uot call in a doe-
tor for measles, makes statistics additionally hard to obtain.
The general medical opinion seemed
also to be that the great spread of the
disease was duo to tho fnct that in the
majority of cases vory few precautious were taken. The children were
not isolated, with the result that if
ope child got ill, the others unsually
followed suit. In the case of adults,
it seems to be in uncommon tiling to
see men walking on the streots while
sufforiug from the measles.
The public school was also agreed to
be ahot bed of epidemic, aud the disease
among the children was largoly owing
to this cause. Some of tho d.ictors
thought that if tho schools had beon
closed much illness would have been
prevented, but the general opinion
seemed to be that once the disease had
gained a certain amount of ground, it
would spread anyhow. Modical opinion was also divided a.* to the arivisi-
bility of the schools opening on the advertised date, some thinking that wero
the schools to remain closed longer, it
would give au opportunity for the epidemic to bo stamped out.
The doctors all agreod that a very
remarkable feature of the epidemic
was the number of adults who had
taken the measles, the proportion of
adults to children leing quito unusual.
There have been no fatul cases,
though many of the adult patients
have boon seriously ill. The chief
dauger of the disease seems to be liability to bronchial pneumonia compli
catious during convalescence.
MR. SOADY EXONERATED.
Was   Quite   Right   iu   Punishing the
Small Boy Oatos.
5j Readers of The Miner will remember that about a month ago Mr. Sondy,
principal of the Nelson Public Hchool,
was summoned for whipping a boy
named Oates who had boon playing
truant. Mr. Soatly had no difficulty
in making good his case at tho time,
but he now has the satisfaction of
knowing that the father of the hoy
approves his action. Mr. Oates was
away at the timo, but returned home
for Christmas. On Tuesday, he
took the boy up to Mr. Soady, and
said he had acted rightly, as the boy
must go to school. It appears that
there would never have been any trouble but for the action of neighbors who
interfered in the matter.
ing room each day show   that the library is greatly appreciated.
The lunatic mentioned in yesterday's issuo as haviug beou reported to
the Gold Commissioner, turns out to
be a man named Abbott, who is suffering trom the effects of a spree. He
was brought iuto town yesterday on
the Kokanee by Special Constable W.
Brown. He got on the International
al Five Mile Point and was put off at
Nine Mile Poiut, whence he walked to
Busk's ranch, where he was caught.
He was under the delusion he was being pursued, and was trying to beat
his way to Kaslo.
AT THE HOTELS.
DEATH AND  ELECTRICITY.
PIONEER FARMER.
Mr.   F.   P.   Norbury of Fort  Steele
Found Farming Very Profitable.
That farming in the heart of British
Columbia mountains can bo made to
pav a handsome profit has beeu clearly
demonstrated by Mr. F. P. Norbury
of Fort Steele who is at the Phair on
his way to England where he will re-
sido in future. Twelvo years ago Mr.
Norbury settled ten miles from Fort
Steelo aud cut out a farm in the heart
of the forest. Tlie soil proved to he
very rioh and largo craps have been
the result each year. There is no competition in the sale of farm produce, i��b
the nearest source of supply that would
compete is Edmonton. Farming, therefore, pays and Mr. Norbury thinks it
should be more generally followed
hero.
"Thero is every reason to believe
that Fort Steele will enjoy a period of
groat prosperity next year" said Mr.
Norbuiy yesterday. "Tho two mines
there that are working now are showing groat Dromise, The North Star
has shipped 10,01)0 tons of ore and has
60,000 tons in sight. Heretofore trans-
portatiou facilities have not been of
the vory best. To ship from the North
Star it was necessary to curry the ore
miles by sleighs, ship it on Kootenay
River to Jennings and then ship it by
rail to the Groat Falls smelter where
it was treated. But the facilities are
better now and on that account the
mine will show an increased profit.
Tho St. Eugene miue'at Moyie City

GLADSTONE TOWNSITE SOLD.
An English Syndicate Buy the   Latest
Railroad Towu.
The promising townsite of Gladstone, owned by Messrs. Cameron,
Good, Forest and Dixon, has been attracting considerable attention for the
last few months, .owing to its close
proximity to the :'en free geld ledges
of the Burnt Pass Basiu, says the Cascade Record. As a consequence of this
prominence an English syndicate,
which has a representative in Rossland, hns been looking into the matter
and recently began negotiations for
the purchase of nearly tbe entire
town. William Forest, J. P., of Gladstone, has mado several visits to Rossland with this iu view,, the laBt one
being this week. Mr. Forest reports
that an agreement has now been reach-
A v.'riter in an electrical magazine,

extent sufficient to make a loud crackling noise nud to produce long blue
streams of sparks from his fingers without auy effect upon the body other
than to force him to descend without
delay.

Melbourne, Victoria, Dec. 28.��� Tlio
gold shipments from Australia for tlio
year 1898 have amounted to $(10,100,-
000. The shipments to America increased one million dollars.
* *   *
During tho last two years nearly
$000,000 was expended in the Greenwood district in developing properties
ami purchasing mining machinery.
Ten of tlie big mines are using steam
plants. Oilier companies are negotiating for tlie purchase of plants to he
placed at tho mines during Ihe winter.

Silverton Silvertontan : This weeks
shipments oi ore brings Iho total for the
year 1808 up to over 1000 tons, with a
net value of not less than 1125,000, to
the mine owners. With tho amount
of development work done and ore
blocked out ill our various mines $1,-
000,000 worth of ore will be exported
from Silverton during tho ensuing
year. The shipments of ore from Silverton this week consist of 120 tons
from the Wakefield mine and 20 tons
i'rom the Vancouver, The soft weather
has interferred considerably with the
raw'hiding but the improvement the
latter pari of the week iu the weather
will have a good effect on next week's
shipping. The difficulty in regard to
loading Ihe ore, mentioned In our columns last week, has been settled satisfactorily and oro will he shipped
henceforth as fast as it can be teamed
down.

The Citizen of London, Eng., iu its
issue of December 10th says: Iu the
British Columbian section hardly any
business has been transacted, but
there is a belief thut better times are
in store as a result of the successful
notation of the Le Hoi miuo, which
have been to 1 premium, thou buck
iignin to 11-lli premium, and finally
heller again at ''��� premium. Lo Roi
shares, however, are not dealt 111 iu
this department, the business in them
being transacted in Ihe West Australian market, One of these (lavs a special British Columbian market will
doubtless be eonstiluletl, but opart
from the Le Roi mine it will bo necessary to Introduce some stronger concerns limn thoie al present quoted <>>
the British Columbian list. A lip is
being passed round that Whitewater
mining shares are worth buying.
��   #   ��
The Greenwood Tunes quotes Mr.
li. 11. Hedley, manager ot the Hall
Mines smelter, who spent several
months examining Konndary Creek
properties as follows: "Speaking ol
possibilities, however, I consider thai
they are far greater in Boundary Creek
dislriel. There Ihe variety is greater
and a perfectly self lluxing ore is obtainable. Once transportation is bad,
development will be pushed and plants
will follow, ores will be treated both
by direct smelling for matte, and by
previous concentration, Should the
coal on development prove to be of
good coking quality, and in snfflicent
quantity, a plant with a large capacity will treat ore as cheaply as anywhere on the continent, Even in
bringing in coke nt a cost of $12 per
ton laid down. I have uo hesitation in
saying that a B60-tone plant���two fm-
naees���using sti-iim power will smell
tit a cost not lo exceed $!i,20 per ton."

Among the arrivals from tho north
country in the city last evening says
the Spokesman Hev tew, was D. .1.
Fit!! (ierald who represents F. AugUHt
Hcinzo's interests in British Columbia. Mr. Fits! Gerald recently returned from Montreal where h�� started
suit against Richard B. Angus und
Thomas tl. Shuuaiinossv, two of the
magnates'of the ('. P. H... to recover
the price of certain personal properly
which Mr. Heinze asserts was appropriated   when   the Trail smelter was
taken over by the C. P. R. people and
which was not included in the deal
and wns never paid for. Mr.. Hcinzo's
penchant for law suits has been much
commented upon ill tlie west and Mr.
last evening consented to
the facts concerning the
t against tlle O. P. R. officials and
some of lite recent Butte litigation as
Mr. Heinze understands them. He
said
"On February II 1808, F. August
Iteiuze made an agreement with
Messrs. Annus and Shaughnessy to
deliver lo thorn the stock and bonds of
tlie Columbia and Western Railway.
Mr. Heinze also agreed to deliver to
Messrs. Angus and Shaughnessy certain of the assets of the British Columbia Smelting & Refining Company
among which were the smelter, certain lime quarries, and all the properties which had been used for the
purpose of tho smelting business, he*
not iuo'iiding any fuel and storos which
Messrs. Angus and ShnughneBSy covenanted to purchase and pay for separ-
a te'.y.
"Messrs. Angus and Shaughnessy
covenanted to pay a certain price for
the stock and bonds of tho Columbia
& Western Railway und for certain assets of the B. 0. Smelting & Refining Company, and the price of tbe fuel
and stores which were not includod
in tho above payment, was later to
be determined and agreed unon.
"Messrs. Angus and Sliiiugbnessy
have paid Mr. Heinze for the bonds
and stock of the Columbia & Western
Railway and for tho smelter and the
property appurtenant to tho smelter,
but they have not paid for the fuel and
stores.
"Tho agreement made by Mr. Heinze
with Messrs. Angus and Shaughnessy
is a perfectly plain oue nnd all Mr
Hienzo desires is that Messrs. Angus
and Shaughnessy keep their covenant,
us per the agreement they executed. "
