Ninth Year
IHLHH CITIZENS
TO INVESTIGATE
Ainsworth  Wreck Inquiry
Will Begin at Once.
MEETING  LAST NIGHT
Action of tho Managers  of tbe IU "Fated
Steamer Severely Criticised By
Business Men.
The special meeting of the Board of
Trade held yesterday evening to oou
sider the circumstances surrounding
the recent wreck of the Ainsworth
was well attended, aud considerable
interest was manifested. In the absence of the President, Mr. J. Roderick Robertson, the Mayor was voted
into the chair.
Mr. H. li Thompson opened the discussion by briefly detailing the circumstances of the wreck so far us
known, and also commented 011 the
fact that Mr. E. J. Mathews' assertion
that no offer was made to salvage hor
cargo, was contradicted by tho
evidence of Mr. Long and others. The
cargo could have been saved, it appeared to him, aud the existence of any
corpses within the wreck ascertained,
had the owners boon in earnest in the
matter. 'He ulso mentioned that the
boat was in the name of the purser,
Mr. Marshall, a man of straw against
whom a judgment, would be of no
avail. Mr. Thompson added that a
deputation had interviewed the Hon.
Jos. Martin on the subject, who had
promised that the government would
take the matter up if necessary.
The following resolution, proposed
by Mr. H. 13. Thompson and seconded
by Mr. W. H. Grant was then passed:
Resolved, That the South Kootenay
Board of Trade considers the wreck of
the Ainsworth, and the consequent
loss of life a matter of such importance
to tbe public that an investigation
should be made, aud that the chairman appoint a committee of three to
collect all possible information and
report to tbe general meeting of the
Board to be held next Monday.
Several letters were then read in the
mutter including nn�� irOm Mr. R. J.
Long, who wm�� a passenger on the bout
at the time of tha wreck, and also had
about J400 worth of freight on the
vessel. After detailing the circumstances of the wreck, which did not
differ materially from the account in
The Miner, Mr. Long went ou :
"Un the afternoon after the accident
the Kaslo returned to the wreck will)
Captain Lean, the purser, the sec.ml
mate and myself on board. They pull-
ad out soma of their clothes from the
cabin with pike poles. They got all
they could of their own. and did not
try to Bave any ot the cargo, or even to
make the wreck fast to the shore,
which could have been done very
easily at that time. They did not
search ou shore for sur"ivors or wreckage, but returned to Pilot Bay as soou
as they had got what they could of
their own.
"Mr. Meal Campbell, one of the passengers, told Mr. Mathews, manager
of the Ainsworth, that if they would
give him a few hundred feet of line
und some blocks und two or three men,
he would tuke every pound of fraighl
out of her iu a few hours. They made
no reply to his offer.
���'On Friday the Kuslo left twain for
tho wreck with Captain Lean, Mr.
Mathews and myself. We found the
wreok hud drifted aoross Crawford
Buy and was lying against tha rooks,
Her house was broken, and nothing
but her noso wus sticking out of the
water.
"When we left I asked Mr. Mathews what he intended to do abont
the freight. He said the company
was not responsible tor any freight
tbat was lost, but that 1 should have
to bear the loss myself.''
A letter was also read from George
McFarland stating that he had sent
some freight down to the Ainsworth,
which was at first refused owing to
the amount already taken on, but afterward accepted; and a letter from
his teamster substantiating the statement. A letter was also read from tho
fireman who left at Pilot Bay, in
which he. stated that the only reason
he left was because he could not get up
enough steam iu the boilers, aud consequently returned to his former position on the Alberta.
The opinion seemed to be, from the
evidence adduced, that the Ainsworth,
whether from overloading, or water
in the hold, was unduly low in the
water when she started. The committee appointed to examine into ull the
circumstances, consists of Messrs. II.
B. Thomson, W. H. Grant and T. G.
Proctor.
The chairman then read a letter
from F. W. Peters. District Freight
Agent of the C. P. R., and 0. G. Dixon, general freight agent of S.F. &N.
P. R., Btating that their respective
companies bad decided to abolish the
custom of distributing car loud lots.
In the matter of a Sunday mail service a letter was read from Mr. J. O.
McLeod stating that he had already
recommended its  adoption,  and  sent
tho Biardof Trado's com un'oation (o
the Controller of Railroad service at
Ottawa. He suggested that the local
member be asked to take tho mutter
up and that tho loading business men
write to the Postmaster General on the
subject.
On tho motion of Mr. \V. H. Grunt
the secretiiry was instructed to telegraph Postmaster General Mulock on
the subject.
After Messrs. P. Lamonto, J. M.
Lay and 0, V. McLood hud boon elected members of the Board of Trade,
the meeting adjourned until next
Monday.
OF II PORTLAND
YELLOW FEVER ABOARD.
United States  Transport  Brings  the
Dread Disease From Santiago.
New York, Dec. 5.���The United
States transport from Mississippi arrived today from San iago de Cuba
and San'jJuan de Porto Rico with 28
passengers. Tho Mississippi, on her
urrival at. San Jnau from Santiago, reported that yellow fever existed on
board. Five men said to be suffering
with fever, were landed at San Juan.
The Mississippi was not allowed to
land any of tbe passengers or cargo
while at San Juan and the cargo sent
from New York for Porto Rico was
brought buck to New York. Health
Officer Dely decided to hold the steamer for a thorough disinfection and
cleaning. No danger is apprehended as
there have been no new developments
since leaving Sun Juan.
SUPREME~~COURT.
SEVERAL     CHAMBER      MOTIONS
HEARD 'TESTEBDAX.
The Case of Spencer vs. Harris Occupies
the  Balance  of the
Day.
When Mr. JuRtico Irving opened the
sittings of the Supreme Court yesterday ' there were several chamber motions to bo heard before proceeding
with the docket. In one of these a
point of praotice, having considerable
interest to the profession,was decided:
Namely, that notice of trial may be
given for any day on which thero is a
sitting of the court.
The first and third ensos on the list,
Solium bery vs. Holden aud Seattle vs.
McOallum were adjourned, aud the
second case, Bell vs. Bass, was settled
out of court, thus Sponsor vs. Harris
camo up for trial.
In this case tho plaintiff sought to
sot. aside the lease granted by the defendant, the owner of the Sandon
townsite, ou the ground that the defendant had no title to the surface
rights of the laud, and so had no right
to grant tho lease���Mr. Harris holds
the townsite of Sandon as a Crown
granted mineral claim. It was argued
by the defense that in the first place,
the plaintiff was estopped by his agreement of lease from disputing the defendant's title.and in the second place
that the defoudant hud a good title to
the luud, his right being confined to
the mineral.
The case occupied the attention of
the court, all day, and, uftor tho arguments of the counsel had been heard,
Mr. Justice Irving reserved judgment.
W. A. McAiiu, Q. C. appeared for the
plaintiff, aud tho Hon. Joseph Martin,
Attorney-General, and Mr W. L.
Quinnett for tho defendant.
Tho first case this morning will bo
Mahouey vs. Brown.
NOT THE  PENIAGOET.
Boston, Mass., Doc. r>.��� Cupt. Pyc,
of the steamer Ilalifni. which runs between Boston and Hulifax.reports that
he passed tho steamer Pentugoet, from
New York, for Bangor, at (I o'clock,
Saturday night November 86th, Tbo
Hulifax was bound for Halifax, N. S.
and she crossed the freight steamer's
path. The Pentngoet wus making
good progress towards her destination,
This seems to bo sufficient evidence
that tho Pontagoet has passod Capo
Race, Cape Cod, and that the whistle
hoard by the life savers there, were
not those of the Pontagoet.
WATER DOES DAMAGE.
Portland, Me., Dec. li.��� The waves
ran the highest at Portland Head yesterday morning for forty years. They
ripped shingles from the roof of the
fog station and completely flooded tho
maid house, doing damage to tbo furniture. The big boll weighing fully
five ton. wus lifted from its support
and curried over the cliff some 20 feet
below. A number of iiistnuces of miner duinuge on shore along Ihe coast
have beeu reported.
WANT THEIR SALAKIES.
Havana, Dec. 5.���The distribution
of the Red Cross relief supplies was
begun at Guunabayu today. A committee of tho municipal guards this
morning waited upon the Civil Gov-
ernor.und requested that he use his
inflnnoe to obtain for them at least a
portion of their overdue salaries. The I
Governor promised to give tliom all the
assistance in his power.
CORBETT AND SHARKEY.
Massachusetts  Official  Returns from the Scene.
A   STORY   OF   DEATH
Univorsal Criticism on Cape Cod of the
Action of the Steamship
Company-
Boston, Mass., Dec. 5.���Dr. Joshua
A. Lewis, of the State Board of Charity, returned from Capo Cod today.
He has been at the scone of the wreck
of the Steamer Portland since last
Wednesday, acting in co-operation
with the state local officials. Dr. Lewis
stated today that in his opinion the
Portland. was not in collission and
never struck on Cape Cod. He believes that the steamer was overwhelmed by the terrible Beas that prevailed during the hurricane aud that
after her top hamper had been washed
away, she filled aud sank. He places
the spot where the side wheeler lies as
about midway between Race Point
and High Head stations, off the Northern end of the Peaked Hill Bur.
"It is my opinion," he said, "that
every soul on bourdiuuBtJiave known
for some time that they were going to
destruction. The life preservers and
tho fact that most of the bodies were
clothed, is ample evidence of this.
Undoubtedly muny bodies went down
witu the hull of the vessel and these
will be recovered if the company does
what the majority of people along
Cape Cod belieye thay should do."     jj
He does not doubt that many bodies
have been washed in shore and washed out again by the undertow tb?t
might have beeu recovered had the
company hired a number of men sufficient to patrol every part of the coast
thoroughly. Dr. Lewis believes thut
a great number of bodies are i >w being held by the Band which were washed ashore undiscovered by the coast
patrol, and ihe terrific breakers soon
forced them under the sands. Dr.
Lewis said that there was almost universal criticism on Cape Cod of the
steamship company for tho failure to
take immediate action towards locating the hull. Dr. Lewis and Selectman Adams ugree that it is geuerul
among the resulonts and old mariners
on Cape Cod thut Cupt. Blancbara of
the Steamer Portland never left port
without orders, at least against direct
orders from the agent of the company,
it is not the customs of captains of
vessels to go against the orders of
their superiors, especially in u case of
tins kind. For that reuson, they believe thai Capt. Bluiichurd, a dead
man, has beeu unjustly condemned for
the loss of his ship. Dr. Lewis
brought with him from Orleans a section of one uf the Grass life preservers
with which the Portland was partially
equipped. This piece was taken from
a life preserver thut came ashore from
tho wreck and at the time it was taken from the water, weighed about 86
pounds. This section was nothing
more than a bundle of reeds. After having been for five days iu u steam room
ami some time in Dr. Lewis valise, be.
wus ublo this morning to squeeze water out it by a more pressure of the the
thumb and.forefinger.
SMYPATHY   EXTENDED.

Washington Dec. 5.���The following
aro some of the opinions expressed
by members of Congress upon the President's message.   Representative Hitt,
Chairman of the House Committee on
Foreign Affairs said:
"The President has summarized aud
solved in an able and felicitious manner, many of questions in men's minds
everywhere.touching the immense and
rapidlly succeeding recent events and
the situation in which the nation finds
itself. His simple proposition to let
the no��� possessions alone under just
and fiixa government by the military
army \ .deli conquered them, gives us
time for plenty of discussion of all the
propositions for their permanent government. The problem of governing
the Cubans he deals with gently and
hopefully and everybody will wish
that bis forecasts of stable government
there will be realized sooner than ever
yet has happened to any Spanish-
Am 3rioan population."
Representative Walker, chairman of
the Committee on Banking and Our-
renoy, said:
"1 am asked what I thins: of the
currency and banking features of the
President's message. I do not see tbat
it has any such features.. It contains
only one recommendation as to the currency, to change the United States
legal tender notes into gold certificates
which would have no effect on the
banking and currency situation, but
add to tho burden of taxation without
any degree favorably affecting the general banking aud curreucy situation."
Mr.Gosvenor.Ohio.���'The message is
not along a beaten path. It is written
in a very attractive style. The contribution to history m the elaborate recitation of the events of the war are in
good taste and devoid of boasting or
vanity. The message is uble and eminently satisfactory aud I believe will
be generally endorsed at home 'and
abroad.''

London correspondent, under date of
Nov. 19, writes as follows:
The mining market during the past

euuy and saowu biu little tits. The
British Columbia section has been unusually quiet, though yesterday there
was considerable buying of British
America corporation shaies, which finished off nearly Is. lid. better on the
day. The advance is accounted for
by the firmer tone shown by Loudon
and Globes and also by rumors tbat
tho British America Corporation intends very shortly to bring out the Le

Instead, however, of the prospectus

remarkable announei-me nt caused a pa

Secretary  of the   Spanish
Peace Commission.
HE   TALKS EXCITEDLY
Says He is Almost Mad   Commissioner
Made Considerable Progress
Yesterday.
Paris, Dej. 6.��� The joint Spanish-
American Peace Commission was in
session for over four hours today.
Much of thejlisoussion concerned details as to the guaranteeing of the
rights of Spanish citizens on the ceded
colonies. The debate was occasionally
energetic and the Spaniards on emerging appeared to be dejected. Secretary
Ojeda, of the Spanish commission,
when questioned after the meeting a
to the progress made, answered excited I: "I am almost mad! I cannot
talk.    We are making some progress. "
The American commissioners declined to say anything further than tbat
the progress made was satisfactory.
The Spanish commissioners have received authority to bind their gover-
mout to certain matters, but there are
yet important questions on which their
instructions are unsatisfactory aud it
is likely that many of the details involved in tbe change of sovereignty in
the Spanish possessions will be left for
settlement by the regular diplomatio
processes when relations between the
two governments are resumed.

Sea Giving Up the Dead of the Steamer Portland.
Chatham Mass. Deo. 5.���The body

Word was sent to Medical Examiner
Munsell of Harwich who replied that
he would drive over without delay uad

man fifty years old, five feet four inches
tall, quite bald, but what hair there is
is back, dark side whiskers and moustache. The clothing is dark blue suit,
russet shoes, stand up collar and a
Masonic pin in the necktie. The easterly gale of last night is being followed by a southwesterly blow, whioh
makes the prospects good that bodies
will come ashore tonight or tomorrow.
OCEAN LINE CHANGE.
Washington, Deo. 6.���The Department of State has information from
tho Charge D'Affaires, ad interim, at
St. Petersburg, to the effect that the
United States Steamship Company has
purchased the Thingvalla line in order
to seeure port f utilities at New   York,
ud will operate that line upon the
route botween tho Russian Baltio
ports, including the ports of Finland
aud New York aud Boston. Tbe shipa

OP INTEREST TO CORONERS.
The Attorney-General has sent out a
oiroular letter to all coroners in the
Province, advising them that before
holding an inquest they shall make a
statutory declaration that the circumstances as represented justify an inquiry. Failing this declaration in
advanoe, no fees will be allowed in tbe
ease of an inquest. They are further
Informed that the evidence as transmitted to tbe Department will be
closely scanned, with the view of determining whether an inquest was;really necessary. It is not stated what
tbe penalty shall be in case it is so
determined by the Departmental official, but it would probably not be less
than tbe forfeiture of fees. There will
also be a special examination of the evidence for the purpose of docidiu-j
whether medical testimony, in caso it
was employed, was essential to the
inquiry. Heretofore, it is said, "coroners have been too ready to call iu
medical testimony in cases where it
was not required. Tn any ease hereafter, where medical testimony is disallowed as being not required, the
physician called upon will be duly
paid, but the amount paid him will
be deducted from the fees of the' kroner. ''
It is presumed this circular is designed to correct abuses that bave
grown up in connection with the holding of inquests. We do not know
that there are such abuses, but nothing
less than their existence could possibly produce this extraordinary communication. It is possible that inquests are held that ought not to be
held, and tbat medical testimony is
taken when the circumstances do not
require it. If so it is desirable that
both should be discouraged. But it is
doubtful if tbis is the right way to go
about doing it. An official in the
Attorney-General's Department at Vic
toria cannot always tell from the evi
dence as reported whether there were
good grounds for an inquiry. And
the employment of medical testimony
may be, and often is, a matter of individual judgment. The Departmental censor may have one opinion, tbe
ooroner another; is it certain that
in the public interest the censor's
opinion should invariauly govern ?
Why should his opinion, or that of the
entire Department, be regarded as
superior to the coroner's? This censor
sits in judgment over matter' he is
not iu a position always to understand, and may iu his discretion impose fines to the extent of the entire
fees. We are afraid the immediate
result of this circular will be the resignation of every solf-rospeotiug coroner
in the Province.
The immigration returns, iu view
of all that has been said, are distinotly
disappointing. For the ten months
ending with October the total arrivals
into the Dominion at ocean ports numbered 18,840. This iu under, rather
than over, tbe average for the last dozen years. It is fortuuate those five or
six thousand Galiciaus were imported,
otherwise our Eurnpoau immigration
would have made a wretched showing.
It is great y to the credit of Mr.
Justice Martin that ho has refused to
take e1' otion cases, for the reason that
he was so recently an active participant in the political strife of the Province. While tbis course is probably
the correct one, its opposite could not
in fairnesB have subjected his Lordship to unfavorable criticism. A judge
may have bis political sympathies,
but if worthy a place on the Canadian
Bench he may easily put off his political bias.
When Mr. Neill, a member of tbe
Provincial Legislutuie supporting the
Government, resigned because he had
unwittingly violated tho law, one Bet
of the Coast newspapers praised him
for his integrity and the other abused
him for malfeasance. Another member, Mr. Robertson, who is on the other
EDITORIAL COMMENT-
(Chicago Tribune.)
Senator William E. Chandler last
evening admitted that the Speaker of
the Dominion Parliament, Sir James
D. Edgar, had come back at him by
proposing tbe exchange of Jamiaca for
New Hampshire, instend of Canada
for the Philippines, as Mr. Chandler
suggested in the November issue of a
New York magazine. 'The joke is on
me, 'the Senator said, after reading the
Toronto telegram. 'If Canada annexed
New Hampshire, would it take you in,
too?' asked Representative Loud of
California, who was with the Senator.
'Oh, yes, you would lose me in that
event,' was the laughing response.
Then Mr. Chandler added: I would
like to see England get the Philippines ;
and if we could secure Canada in ex
change, well and good. If not, let us
take what we can get. It appears now
that we will have to pay 120,000,000
for the islands.

Petition to Open Up Ward Street.
The Curfew By-Law,
At the weekly nioori:ig of the City
Council held yesterday afternoon, there
were present Mayor Honston, in the
ohair, and Aldermen Teetzel, Whalley,
Madden, Gilker and Hillyer. The
following members of the Council expressed their intention of joining the
0. P. R. excursion to Forme tomorrow : Aid. Teetzel, Whalley, Madden
and Gilker. The Mayor and Aid.Hillyer said they would be unable to go
and Mr. L. MoOullooh, the city engineer, and Mr. James Lawrence were
invited to take their places.
The Mayor then read tenders for a
hook and ladder truck for the Fire Department from the Waterous Engine
Works Company, Brantford, Out., aud
the Builey Manufacturing Company
of New York. The former offered to
supply an outfit for $375 which it was
calculated would cost about 1700 laid
down in Nelson. The New York
firm's bid was $1405, freight and duty
paid. It was considered that the
cheaper apparatus would be amply
sufficient for the city's needs for sonic
years to come, while the Baboook Fire
Extinguishers could he obtained separately, so the Mayor was authorised to
aooept the Ontario firm's offer. The
outfit is as follows:
Total length with pole 29 feet; total
width 5 feet eight inches; height over
all 0 feet eight iuches; "Surveu" patent wheels with patent round ed^e
tires aud steel axles; one 40-foot extension ladder; ouu 20-foot single ladder;
ono Hi-foot single ladder; one 16-foot
roof ladder; one Kl-foot pole; four
pike poles; six tire buckets;" one 100-
foot pull down rope hook aud chain ;
four brass nickel plated lanterns with
smoke and water shields; one gong ; a
60-foot drag rope; three fire axes;
three large ludders on rubber rollers. All
fittingB ou the apparatus aro nickel
plated.
A petition with some 70 signatures
was then read praying that Ward
street be opened up between Victoria
and Baker streets us soon as possible.
The petition was referred to the Public Works Committee.
It was resolved thut in the future
that uo water connections be put iu
with less than a -k-iuch pipe as the
experiments had shown that a %-inch
threw a much stronger aud longer
stream nf water than a la-inch pipe
nnd so would lie of great value in case
of a fire iu li.e icmueutial portion of
the town.
Alderman Hillyer statod that he had
been informed by the Rev. Father
Ferland that tho body of Captain Per-
land had been buried in the middle of
the road in the new cemetery. The
City Engineer was instructed to find
out if such were the case aud report
at the next meeting.
After a number of accounts had been
ordered paid it was decided to make
an outlet to the Cedar street sewer at
once the work to be done by day labor.
A by-law introduced by Alderman
Whalley regulating the hours during
which children under 16 years of age
may be on the streets without their
parents or guardians was read for tho
first and second tune. The third reading was fixed for the next meeting of
the Council.
The Mayor then referred to the advisability of the city obtaining more
water for electrio light purposes for if
the present weather continued the Cottonwood Creek was liable to freeze up.
To this end it had beon suggestod that
stake out water rights ou the other
side of the range but tho '' Water
Courses Act" did not permit municipalities to do this except for domestic
purposes. Tho city's legal adviser W.
A. Macdonald Q. 0., advised tho city
to go ahead and stako. It was considered -.hat it could do no harm to make
application for the water so the Mayor
was authorized to take such stops as
he considered necesary for tho acquiring of the water rights.
In this connection the Mayor statod
that the electric light appeal was argued on Thursday beforo tbo full
court, and that judgment might be expected this week.
Bids were opened from the following parties in paymeut for the privilege of removing ice from the cily
reservoir: 0. F. Etter, $80; Wilson
& Harshaw, $1C0; The Nelson Ice
Company, $125. The last bid being
the highest was accopted by the
Counoil.
E. Nelson Fell, manager of the Athabasca mine, is at the Phair.
Provincial Constable Alan Forester
has returned from a visit to Calgary.
Mrs. R. L. Lennie will be at home
to her friends at her residence ou Vernon street after Wednesday.
There is a great deal of travel in this
purt of (he country just now. All the
hotels in town were full last night.
Mr. Fred Mountain, until recently
chiof of the Provincial Police of this
district, has severed his connection
with the police force.
Mr. J. Roderick Robertson, manager of the Loudon nnd B. C. Goldfields,
left on yesterduy's evcuiug train for u
short visit to Rossland.
The stone work of the opera house
whioh is being built, by the Allen
Bros, ou the comer of Victoria and
Ward Streets, is well under way.
The electric lights retired to rest last
night at their usual hour but omitted
to oome out again with the result that
the town was in semi-darkness yesterday evening.
Captain and Mrs. Troup gave n
dance last night on the Steamer Moyie
to a large number of their friends in
honor of that vessel being commissioned for service.
The ladies of the Methodist church
will hold a sale of goods in the Des-
Brisay store ou Thursday aud Friday,
Dec. 8 an 9. Refreshments will be
served aud a programme of music rendered each eveuiug.
Alderman J. J Malor.e, who is now
iu the Lane Hospital, San Francisco,
has writton to friends in the city that
lie expects to be abe to leave the hospital about the end of the week aud
will bo home before Christinas.
Those interested in the collecting of
postuge stamps were admiring yesterday some choice old specimens just received by Mr. Purdy of the Hume
Hotel. One iu particular, a 6>��d
stamp issued in 1865 by St. John's
oity, Newfoundland, is especially valuable, its market price being $100.

By the time the two sheets of ice in
the new rink are ready for curlers
there will be a small army of adherents of the "roaring game" prepared
to invade them with stones and
brooms . The efforts made of late by
some enthusiastic curlers of Nelson
to form a club to take advantage of
the ice tbat will be provided,
eulminated last evening in the organization of the Nelson Curling Club,
which promises to be very successful
from the inception. At all points of any
importance in the Kootenay district
curliug olubs thrive, aud there is no
doubt iu the world that the Nelson
club will soon take its place at the
head of them all.
The meeting last evening was held
in the Board of Trade room and those
preseut were W. H. Grant, P.Lamont,
N. S. McLeod, A. D. Emory, John
Rae, A. T. Walley, Judge Forin,
James Bauuerman, Juo. A. Turner,
Jacob Dover, A. Grant, H. Cameron, |
P. J. Russell, G. O. Hodge, Dr. A. I
O. Forin. |
Mr. W. H. Grant was requested to
take the ohair and Mr. G. C. Hodge
acted as secretary. Mr. Grant stated
the objeot of calling the meeting and
explained the negotiations that he had
with tbe oompany building the rink
now in course of construction. Ample
accommodations he said would be
provided and satisfactory financial arrangements could be made to allow
ourlers to use the two sheets of ioe.
He thought the interest already manifested in the proposal to form a olub
augured well for its fnture prosperity.
The gentlemen present were so
unanimously of the opinion that n club
was the proper thing, organization
was proceeded with without more ado
and ou motion of Mr. Hodge and Dr.
Forin, the Nelson Curling Club beoame
an assured fact. |A short discussion
ensued as to the proper number of
officials and as a result of the deliberations and selections the following gentlemen were selected:
President, Judge Forin ; Vioe President, W. H. Grant; Secretary aud
Treasurer, T. Lillio; Exeoutive Committee, John Turner, N. S. McLeod,
John Rae, Dr. Forin, W. H.Galligher,
F. W. Peters, P. J. Russoll. G. O.
Hodgo and P. Lninont.
The membership fee was pluced at
$10. Mossrs. Grant, Turner aud Rus
sell were appointed a committee to interview tho riuk promoters and report
at the next meeting as to the best arrangements that conld bo made to supply the (dub with accommodation. The
president anil Messrs. Grant ami Peters were appointed a oommiitee to
draft by-laws. Other matters were
discussed, such as tho most convenient
manner in which to secure a supply of
stones, but no further action was tuken
except to adjourn until Tuesday evening of next week.
Meanwhile the officers of tho club
will endeavor to ascertain just who
will join tho club. A systematio canvass for members will be made immediately, but the wora will be greatly
facilitated if all those who intend to
take up the game would inform them
of the fact.
In connection with the new
curling club, The Miner has received from William Hood, of Sandon,
the following communication:
"Mr. W. H. Grant's communication
in your issue of Nov. 29 iB timely and
to the point. As the expense of the
first season,of erecting a rink.pirohns-
ing curling stones, etc, is quite un
item,our Sandon Curliug Club is willing to furnish instruction free for one
season."
To this Mr. Grant, after careful perusal, delivered himself us follows :
"From the enthusiastic meeting tonight I think we will be able to give
lessons before the season is over. "
Mr. Grunt is waiting for Mr. Hood
to move.

MINING MATTERS.
(Continued from'First Page.)
published in pamphlet form and consists of some 40 pages besides maps
and plans. On the front page is an illustration of the Chemainus Saw Mill,
though what connection the saw mill
has with the Mining Company, the
public is left to imagine. The much
advertised information about the copper suDply is contained in a lengthy
preface, which has been written by
Mr. Nichol Brown, who states that he
has had an intimate acquaintance with
all the phases of tho copper trade for
nearly thirty years. The evident object of tho preface is to demonstrate
that the supply is not equal to the demand and that thns the Cheniniuus
Mining aud Smolting Company should
prove a profitable investment, in that
it is expected to produce copper. After
wading through this preface one comes
to the prospectus proper. It is announced that the company has been
formed "for the purpose of acquiring,
testing and working metalliferous properties in Vancouver Island and elsewhere aud for ereoting smelting works
at convenient places for the economic
reduction of the complex ores, carrying copper and other metf.ls to the refined state."
tThe first property to be acquired by
the company iB the Tyee, which is situated on the western slope of Mount
Sickor, about six and a half miles
from Chemainus and eight aud one-
quarter miles from Duncan's. Voluminous reports nre giveu by Mr. E.
B. Livingston (one of the promoters).
Mr. D. B. Irvine of Victoria, and Mr.
���William Thompson, from which it appears that the claim carries gold, silver
and copper, the average assay being
about two dwts. gold, 3 ozs. silver
and 4 per cent, copper per ton, while
a test shaft bus been sunk and other
prospecting work has been done.
The most remarkable part of the
Company is the means in which the
vendors are to be paid for the property. The capital is ��100,000 in ��1
shares nnd th? vendors, Clermont
Livingston, of Oorfleld.|Vancouver Island ; K. W. Molander of Fort Towns-
end, and O. H. Dickie, T. A. Wood,
W. E. Blythe and J. Murchie, of Duncan's are to be paid ��50,000 in paid
up shares, 12,600 on the completion of
the transfer of the property, ; 12,6000
when 60,000 tons of ore are certified
to be in.'aight, 12,600 when 26,00
tons of additional ore are proved
and the final installment when
another 25,000 tons of ore are certified
being in sight, making 100,000 in all.
The advantages and economies of the
Company are thus pointed out to bo I
No cash to vendors, no further issne of
shares to vendors except for ore in
sight; no promotion money ; moderate
advertising expenses ;no underwriting ;
no waiver clause. The Directors are:
Nichol Brown, (Chairman), London,
M. T. Brown, A. M. I. O. E, Glasgow ; C. J. Buckland, Cookham Dean,
Berks; E. B. Livingston and Sydney
Pembroke, London. Mr. Clermont Livingston is the agent in British Columbia.
