Kxpeiu.i-M.w Uevenue Lmri.
Tho provincial legislature opened
for tlm dispatch of business laat Thursday, th** ceremonies being of the usual
showy description. 0. E. Pooley, of
Esquimalt, was electeii speaker. In
the general arrangement of the house,
\V. Davidson, member for this riding,
sits with the government, while Haw-
thornthwaite and Williams, the two
Socialists, sit with the opposition. All
three will give th-* government an Independent support. Following is tbe
speech from the throne:
"I have much pleasure in welcoming
you to the first session of the tenth
parliament of British Columbia.
'•Our financial affairs demand most
earnest consideration on your part,and
I appeal, with hope, to your patriotism and to your love for the province
whose future destinies, under provi-
(leiie3, are ia your hands. There is no
reason why British Columbia, with its
great natural resources, should not
occupy in the Dominion of Canada a
position of which we may all be justly
"You have therefore lieen convened
thus early that my finance minister
may make such fiscal arrangements as
may lit* necessary.
••Having iu view the immediate requirements of the country, and the
unfavorable conditions for obtaining
a loan on the London market,you will
be asked to authorize the issuance of
treasury warrants extending over a
abort period of years, and repayable
in annual instalments.
"A ronsid arable increase in revenue
each year will, in consequence, lie ue-
eessafT, not onlv to meet ordinary expenditure, but to provide for the redemption of warrants. The legislation
proposed will therefore include a new
UsscsiiUient aet, nud iiinciid'.iieuts to

"As part of th'* p'.an for financial
reconstruction, subst r.itial economies
in the civil service h ivc already lieen
effected and material reduction in the
expenditure on public works brought
about, These will be continued with |
a due regard to the requirements of
the province.
"My government has already taken
up the proposed readjustment of the
financial arrangements between the
province and tne Dominion, fis also
the question of control of our fisheries
and tke regulation of alien immigration, These subjects will lie earnestly
and persistently pressed to a settlement satisfactory to the province.
"As a result of the recent decision
in the .Alaskan boundary inquiry, a
strong feeling exists in favor of the
all-Canadian route into the Yukon
and northern British Columbia, and
my government will co-operate in any
reasonable efforts which may In- made
to bring about the construction of sueh
a railway.
"1 am pleased to nota- the probability of the construction, at au earls-
date, not only of another Canadian
transcontinental system having its

The first meeting of the city council
in three weeks was held on Monday
Bight, all the members being present.
Communications read: From Agent
General Turner, London, Eng., asking
for a map of the city, photographs,
and general information.
Aid. Arnot's resignation again eame
up, and a letter was read irom him
asking the council to accept it at oneo.
The clerk was instructed to secure
half a dozen maps of the city from
Mr. Fletcher and to forward oue to
the agent general at London.
On motion of Aid. Teeter and McNeish the resignation of Aid. Arnot
was accepted. Aid. McNeish deeply
regretted Aid. Arnot's step in the
closing months of the year, especially
as tho council was so short-handed
Aid. Teeter inquired what st-'ps
were necessary to be taken to prepare
for the forthcoming annual election.
On lieing informed, he moved that the
clerk lie appointed returning officer,
the nominations and elections to lie
held at the city hall. Seconded by
Aid. Worden and carried.
The clerk brought up the question
of auditor and stated Mr.Curtis would
go at the books at once.
Aid. Worden Inquired if anyone
was supposed to look after the sidewalks during the winter; also if some
means could not lx* adopted to protect
the fire ladders from the weather. The
board of works are to look after the
ladders and report.
Replying to a query as to the collection of trader.) licenses, the clerk
stated there were a few outstanding,
but that he thought he would get all
i In tho discussion that followed,
he aldermen expressed their dissatis-
f.iction at this state of affairs, stating
it was very unfair to those who paid
their lieenses promptly.
Aid. Worden stated Manager St.
Denis, of tho local mill company, had
asked him to have the council place
their selling price on the Sloan building. Moved by Aid. Teeter and Worden that a price of $500 be set upon
the building.   Carriec*.
Aid. McNeill, for the police commissioners, stated that the chief of
police was not hired to clean sidewalks, and if he did siit was of his
own free will. His worship concurred
in those remarks, but Aid. Worden
thought the chief should do something
for his salary.
Council adjourned.
A Serieuit Fall.
A serious accident befel W. K.Cameron on Tuesday night and as a result
he is confined to his lied. The night
was extremely dark and the accident
occurred in crossing the bridge over
the river leading to his home in West
Slocau. He had crossed the maiu part
of the bridge in safety but, in turning
off the farther end, made a misstep
and fell over ou to the rocks in the
river bed below, a distance of 10 or 12
feet. He lit ou his head aud chest,
inflicting a nasty gash on the forehead
and receiving internal injuries. After
somewhat recovering his breath, he
had strength sullicient to stumble to
his home, though almost blinded bv
the blood streaming from his head.
Hor husband's appearance was a great
shock to Mrs. Cameron. .Medical aid
was at onee summoned ami the injured man quickly attended to, it taking
eight stitches to draw together the
wound in the head. It will be some
time before Mr. Cameron will lie able
to be around again. Had the proper
guard rails lieen in place on the bridge
tho accident would not have occurred,
but as it is there is capital ground for
basing a heavy suit for damages
against the provincial authorities.
Local Scotchmen Ouly Honor Memory of
Patron Saint.
Local Scotchmen celebrated the anniversary of St. Andrew with great
eclat on Monday night, the event being much more successful than either
of the two previous efforts. As was
the case last yoar, the banquet was
held at the Arlington hotel, 10 persons
sitting down to the feast. The tables
wero shaped after the manner of a St.
Andrew's cross, President MeCalluiu
taking the main end and Vice Johnson
the other. A rich array of distinctly
Scotch edibles, flanked by many delicacies that were not Scotch,loomed up
liefore the assemblage, and the dispatch with which those dainties disappeared was a marvel to behold. Some
kind-hearted friends in Nelson sent up
a haggis for the occasion that was the
real thing, and a savage attack was
made upon it by the clans. The feast
was a grand one, calling forth warm
expressions of appreciation.
The inner man satisfied, there followed toasts, talks, sangs an' a' that,
the programme lasting for hours.
Capital speeches were delivered by the
numerous orators, among these being
Uev. Messrs. Simons and Scott, R. J.
McPhee, D. S. McVannel, R. C.Campbell-Johnston, John Foley, W. S.
Johnson,L. J. Edwards.Actiug Mayor
Smith and others. All the speakers
expressed their gratification at being
present, and warm and loyal were the
sentiments voiced to native land and
King. R. T. Anderson, the society
bard, excelled himself with his original compositions, and was cheered to
the echo. Messrs. O'Callaghan and
Webster were no mean seconds either.
A piano had lieen provided for the
occasion aud many were the songs
submitted, among those contributing
Ixiusr Messrs. Arnot, Worden. Davidson, Lea, Snyder and Campbell-Johnston. Geo. Philpot contributed his
mite with a cornet.
To tell of all that was said and done
at that spread would fill a book, but
it sure was a memorable occasion.
There was a strong under current of
good fellowship displayed, and even
those preseut who were so unfortunate
as not to Iw Scots, could not but feel
its influence. Many cycles after midnight passed ere the company dispersed, the clatis being loth to sever
their harmonious relations. There
was only one drawback to the general
happiness, the usual franking of tele-
triiiins between sister societies on St.
Andrew's night lieing this year deuied
by the C.P.R. for the first time. Sir
Thomas Shaughnessy is no Scot.
Taking Oat Uulllon.
Every few days news is brought to
town of somo find of marvolously rich
ore having been made on sonic one of
the various claims working in the
camp, lessees lieing the responsible
agents. The latest excitement is at
the Port Hope, which is under lease
to C. Snyder, H.Lea and C.McNichol.
The boys came down on Mondav eve,
bringing a pack load of magnificent
samples of ore, which had lieen taken
from tho main shaft, commenced bv
the owners. The quartz has a mixture
of sulphides, sulphuretsandargentite,
and will run over 2000 oz in silver, besides gold. A picked sample will
yield 13000 oz. Several tons of ore have
already Ihh-ii taken out by the lessees
for shipment. The specimens are on
view at A. C. Smith's store and are attracting much attention.
To Construct an Oprrn llnme.
The owners of the Music Hall
have it in miud to convert that building into an up-to-date opera house.
Their idea is to tako out the second
Boor and to erect a large gallery in
thr* front end, supported by iron pillars. The ground floor would be the
hall proper, while the stage would be
placed at the back end. An addition
would then be built on the rear for
commodious dressing rooms. The
main entrance would be from the
street, A new floor would Ih* laid
suitable for dancing and the whole
building finished up in fine stvle. If
these plans be carried out, the city
would possess a valuable attraction.

Perhaps there nre few substances
contributed by animals io the materia
mcdic.i of greater value or more extensively benellclal thnn certain species
of insects. Of these there are none
more highly esteemed for medical purposes than those beautiful, shining,
green colored insects known as blistering beetles, or cuntliiiiidcs. Their corrosive action Is so grant that they frequently   inflame   and   excoriate   tho
hand! of those who collect tliem. nnd
on this property tluit* chief medicinal
virtue depends. They nre generally
used in the form of plasters or Ointment, nnd in cases of violent vUcorfll
Inflammation their external use can
scarcely be supplied by any otlier inedl-

a curious mode of catching tattles
Is practiced lu tho West Indii's. lt
consists In attaching a ring and a line
to the tail of a species of sucker lish
known ns the remor.'i. The live lish Is
then thrown overboard and Immediately makes for the first turtle he can
spy, to which he attaches himself very
firmly by means of n sucking apparatus arranged ut the top of bis head.
Once attached to the turtle, so flrin Is
his grip that the fisherman on drawing
the line bring! home both turtle and

In uilalition to basing ihe greatest
llritish statesman of the day, "dt.
Chamberlain is one of the mosi, iu-
ti'iesting and fascinating personalities. 'Jo-day, when tho name o.
Chamberlain, tii*- statesman, Is on
everybody's lips, tha* following anecdotes of Chamberlain; the mun, will
bo of peculiar Interest:
Most statesmen work hard, but few
work ni hard us the late Colonial
•Secretary. The stall of the Coloniul
Office doclaro ihut ihey never hud a
chief who got through sm h a quantity of work. 'Ihey speak feelingly.
for when a Qoveipment office i.s presided over by a chief of unusual activity und energy (he stall have to
a'Xhibil un activity und energy in
Mr. Chamberlain is a Inte riser, but
to counterbalance this ha' begins "his
work while he is still in bed. lie
reads newspapors and o quantity of
Official documents before lv rises. In
this ho dilfers from nnotllor famous
Statesman, who, has put it on record
that he nuvor reads the newspapers.
When Mr. Chamberlain sottlcs down
to work for the day ho does i. swiftly and methodically. All his papori
are kept, in boautiful order, and his
SOCJ'etary cun lay his bund in n mo
ment ou 1 hi* most important blue-
book or lhe most trivial tnonioraii
As is notorious, Mr. Chamberlain
lakes little or no exercise. He Is i\
glial smoker,however, and does most
of bis wprk with thc ni.i of a cigar.
The advocates ol physical culture
and tho oppon nis of tobucoo will
both lind matter for reflection in the
fact that, cli'spite hifl abstention from
tho one and his devotion to the other, Mr. Chamberlain enjoys excellent
health. Ho is vigorous physically,
and a good deal mora' vigorous mentally than many athletes of n third
of bis age.
Thore, is one form of exercise in
which Mr. Chamberlain does tako an
intereat' however. Ho hju-nn expert
swiiumer. A gentleman who happened to slny ni the same hotel ai Scarborough as Mr. Chamberlain years
ago, when the now leading statesman hnd only just entered thn House
of Commons, bus related that be

beriuin. then n Ind. u good second.
In public Mr. Chamberlain, as his
Opponents know host, is determined,
hard-headed, mil essentially practical— n typical Englishman. In pri-
vato he is very human. 1 *• - is fond
of children, for Instance. He iul.es a
grant interest in thc small members
of his family, with whom in' is us
popular as be is with his constituents of Wesl Birmingham. No
stronger siniiia* could be used than
lhat, by tho way. Thoso who have
n.it seen the member for West Dlrin
Ingham addressing a nieeting of his
supporters have >. ■ t to learn what
popularity is.
To return to the children. Here is
a quaint anecdote illustrating Mr.
Chamberlain's kindness to the little
people. Ii is told by a Indy who
was once a scholar in it Birmingham
Sunday school. Thai Sunday school
had tho privllego of holding its an
i> ul treal in the grounds oT Highbury. Mr, Chamberlain enjoyed
watching tho small children disporting about his grounds ns much as
the small children enjoyed it themselves. One of tin. games was an old
kissing game, something like kiss-in-
tho-riug, One of tho children Btnttds
iu th" centre, nnd tlie others sing a
ditty calling on her to "Choose you
one, choose you two, choose you the
fa ires I of the three." Mr. Chamberlain took his place In tho ring, and
was chosen by the small maid iu th.'
i.'i,11 e. Hi* i iss il lha* lilt la' mui.I
gallantly, io lhe delight of lhe players.
An anecdote Illustrating Mr, Chamberlain's business side: Onco at a
banquet an old goblet wus exhibited,
and curiosity was expressed es toils
ng.3. There was n BCI*0W in lb" gob-
let, and looking at tho screw, Mr
Chamberlain was able to inform his
host that tlm goblet dated hack I i
th*' eighteenth century Thero was
nothing very remarkable in this, pci-
haps, bul it shows thai Mr. Chamberlain is no theorist, but a man
who knows his business practically.—

The lirst of the series of lectures,
endowed by Sir SancUord Flenliug.
imdoi* the auspices ol the Canadian
Institute, wus delivered on Waliu-
day night in the new medical building, Toronto, by Dr, L; 0. Howard.
chief entomologist of the American
Bureau of Agriculture, upon "Somo
International Work With insects."
Sir Sondford Fleming being unavoidably absent, the chair was occupied
by the President of the Canadian
Institute, Prof. Coloman, who spoko
briefly in Introducing Dr, .Howard.
Ur. Howard is one ol the greatest
living authorities on the subject of
entomology. Referring to thc principal insects which ufi'ect agriculture
and horticulture in North America,
he stated that they ara not native
species, but have been imported from
abroad, and mainly from Kurope. He
said lhat European species when accidentally imported into the United
States, particularly into the southern States, seem to thrive ond multiply with extraordinary facility and
fecundity. One reason for this is the
longer summer and the greater sum
total of Ina! during ihe breeding
period. Another reason Is that the
natural enemies which keep them In
check in their native home huve been
left   behind.
Enormous sums have been spent by
fruit-growers in their attempts bv
spraying and other means to destroy
noxious Insects, The orange and olive
trees in California were almost destroyed by various kinds of scale.
Twenty years ngo the white scab'
was overcome by a ladybug from
Australia. The same insect was af-
terwards sent to Egypt, Portugal
and South Africa whore it accomplished the sumo beneiicial results.
More recently the olive trees have
been similarly relieved ol the white
Ho told In some detail ot th'*
search for thn parasite that is the
natural enemy of the a**'un JoSo BCalo,
lirst in Japan and then successfully
In China, where tho home i.i the
scale was found, and along with it
the insect that feeds on it und keeps
its ravages within bounds Twi of
theso insects were brought to Washington two years ago and <ured for
until they multiplied and proved
their worth, nnd this year 400 colonies of theso insects were sent out,
and on the whole tho results have
been satisfactory, altogether satis-
fr lory In certain States, investigation is to be made in South America
for an insect thnt will destroy the
San .lose scale in northern as well us
sou thorn climates.
AllOthel beneiicial importation from
abroad was described: iho Smyrna

The result is; that in certain places
in California many tons of dried
Smyrna ligs ol a superior finality
nre now put upi n the market annually.

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 4th, 11)03.
Those wicked Tories down at Victoria have actually had the audacity
to hie the Dunsmuir interest's io the
courts again for employing Chinese iu
the collieries at Union, and havo had a
fine inflicted. James will soon learn
that he is no longer It.
Canada is to have an all-rail route
to the Klondike, giving her control of
the trade of that important section.
The Dominion government will father
the scheme and the legislature of this
province will lend its aid. Such a
road would open all the northern section of British ColuiKbia.so attracting
population and capital. The building
of tho road is a direct result of the
Alaskan boundary award.
Last Thursday the local legislature
opened for business andjudgiug from
the text of the speech from the throne,
the Conservative government has fully
grasped the needs aud requirements
of the province. That the government
mean to work was also exhibited by
the budget of new bills and amendments laid liefore the members next
day, the customary adjournment to
the following woek boing done away
with. It is the intention to wind up
tho session, if possible, liefore Christmas, and the leaders promise no dallying with public matters. The session will be a noted one, as the legislation submitted has taken the Opposition by surprise, being at the same
time more drastic than the Conservative followers generally thought would
be the case. An earnest endeavor is
being mado to keep expenditures inside tho revenue and to improve the
financial positiou of the province. A
short-termed loan of a million dollars,
by treasury warrants, is asked for;
while sweeping amendments to the
Assessment and Land acts are introduced, the aim being to increase the
revenue derived from tho coal and
timber resources, the railways, and
the income tax. Pulp reserves are
cancelled, but the famous two per
cent tax on mineral is retained. The
legislators will earn their allowances
this session.
It is high time the citizens were bo-
stowing some attention to the formation of a lioard of aldermen for next
year. It is aliout time also that burlesque gave way to the stern realities
aud responsibilities of a self-governing
community. With the present council reduced to a bare quorum of four
nnd minus a mayor, and with the outlook extremely doubtful for even a
working complement of aldermen for
the coming year, it must be admitted
the situation is at least unsatisfactory.
What is required i.s a set of enterprising and resolute men, who will conscientiously shoulder the responsibilities of the city and legislate with justice to all and favors tn none. As all
know, it is necessary that the utmost
economy shall bo practiced with regard to expenditures and, equally so,
is it essential that tho various sources
of revenue shall lio strictly and fully
developed. Thero are now outstanding several thousand dollars in back
taxes and prompt and effective moans
should be taken to collect them in,
outside property holders lining thus
compelled to bear thoir just share of
the expenses of civic government.
Were all available revenue collected
in, there should lie sufficient funds
each year, not only to meet general
expenses and the debenture debt, but
also to provide for public improve
meuts, which are sadly needed, The
city has an excessive assessment and
si high rate of taxation and something
tangible should result. Every effort
should Ik. made to attract population,
by constructing good walks and line
streets. In time electric lights and
waterworks will follow. Slocan needs
n complete and energetic council, and
to that end a move ought to lie made
at once to induce those eligible for office to stood for election.
