City Council held Its regular meeting: on Monday evening, Aid. Nichol
alone being  absent.    Aid.   Barber
presented his certificate of qualifica
tion and toek his seat at the board.
Before the minutes of the last meet
lag were sl-j-n-jdr Aid. Barber pro-
t-*sted aga i nat, ct'l lecti ng I iceriwss
from ranchers fortell ing wood inj'he
citv, and wanted to givo notice of

The minutes were then signed.
Aid. Robertson adverted to tlie.li-
cense question again and said it was
not so much tbe bylaw as it was tbe
interpretation of it.
Sundry, other remarks were made
and the subjVct dropped.
Evening World, Rossland, wanted
draft of voucher register before submitting price. Nelson Tribune had
the remains of tire one ordered and
cancelled by the old council and
would put it into shape for 124. Mat
ter left over for a week, till further
answers were received from other
parties written to.
Royal Bank, Nelson, wrote, accepting the pri-posed civic loaji ot
9600, at 8 percent'interest per year
And running three months, upon condition tbat the citv council pass the
necessary bylaw to autho-rice same;
also that the mayor and aldermwi individually and collect velv sign a
note therefor. The city wiiuld "iiej
required to pay thc lawyer'-- coj-ju in
tbe matter.
Aid. Smith inevorj the letter be re-,
-Ctrlved and filed.
Aid;McCallum would refuse te -sign
ill* note as an individual, and tne
bank- waa exacting too much.
, The mayor said if the council so
d- sired he would arrange to get the
note financed after the bjfiaw passed.
The expenses and interest, as asked
for by the bank, Would bo a heavy
charge on the loan.
Motion seconded by Aid. Barber
■t—i trarried.
The committee appointed at last
meeting to meet the board of the local hospital snd arrange prices for
treating indigent cases, reported a
price of $15 per week for general
cases aud $2;> fur confinements. Tbe
communication wus signed by D. B.
O'Neil, as secretary ofthe board.
Aid, McCallum' said Dr. Forin
would attend outside cases for the
city for $1 a day. The prices .riven
were about 25 per cent discount from
regular | rices.
AM. Robertson moved that tho report and prices be accepted. Sucoiid-
ed by Aid. Smith, and carried.
Tlie Bureau of Provincial Information, Victoria, wrote, seeking information for tho use of the government
for statistical purposes. Clerk Foley
said ho was attending to the matter
and the letter was ordered filed.
Bills presented: Bennett & Co.,
goods for a curtain, $3.15; Mrs. Tut
cher board to iudigent, $1; II. Guest,
stationery, $4.25. Ordered referred
to finance committee.
Mayor Brads, -iw reported regarding the poor family being looked
after by the city. The husband had
returned and would provide for his
family in future.
Tlie question nf the proposed city
loan was a aiu taken up,Clerk Folev
reading a copy of the required bylaw.
His worship did not think $500
would be sufficient to cover thc probable expenses or the citv, in which
Aid. McCallum concurred, the latter
holding that $1400 would bo none too
much. He then moved, seconded by
Aid. Smith, that the council do borrow $800 fsir three months, instead of
$500 as proposed at last meeting.
Aid, Barber and Robertson moved
the first reading of the loan bylaw.
It was agreed to hold special meetings each following evening, so as to
pass tho bylaw through.
Aid. Worden's notico of motion to
amend the pound bylaw, ''hanging
'date of advertising, was taken up.
(Aid. Nichel as seconder not being
present, Aid. Barber and Robertson
fathered the amendment, which was
His worship brought forward tho
question of appointing a police magistrate. Gee. Nichol and Aid. Robert-
ison had been nominated as appoin
Itees to tho police comnilssionership.
h was tho intention to enforce the
Sunday elosing law to the letter and
Ijhsj city wanted a police magistrate.
Aid. McCallum, as a stranger
among them, not knowing what the
previous council had dono in tho
matter, wanted te know if it iv»s the
intention' w, nay tho luiigistratt- out
of city funds as an extra salary. If
tiie office could not be made to pay,
he would oppose any extra salaries.
If the. .office could be made pay it
would be different.
Aid.Barber explained what the old
council bad done about the police
Iiis worship was not acting without giving the matter due thought.
Tbe magistrate would not be a drag
on the city. There wonld be no extra expense, as tbe office wonld be
attached to the city clerkship, which
was originally proposed. Mr. Foley
was willing to accept the office at
his present salary.
Aid. McCftllun* had raised thc
point merely for information,
Tbe other aldermen interlarded a
few remarks, and his worship pick*
ing up tbe strain said he could get a
man to do police duty for $25 per
month, which would be a saving to
the city over the present arrangement ef $50 per month.
Aid. McCallum thought it strange
no answer was received from the
government to the letters sent about
tho police magistrate.' Something
certainly was wrong, and it was discourteous in the department, to aay
the least.
His worship said no reply had been
received to either of the two letters
sent; and even the sitting member
had made no move in the matter.
There had been much talk of late
about enforcing the Sundav closing
law. One of the botelkeepers had
come to hia and asked that the law
be strictly enforced on all.
Aid. Smith wanted to knew If the
city had a magistrate whether they
would have to pay the keep of prisoners sent to Nelson. He wanted to
know also if thc city would have to
pey for the two prisoners sent down
a fortnight ago.
Tlie clerk held the city was not responsible for the keep of tbe prisoners, On tbe suggestion of the-conn-
cil, tlie; clerk would write tu the attorney gtsnenil for advice.
Aid. McCallnni wanted to know
whether it wns iieewssniy to re affirm
the TaTiuns eity officials to their position by the new council. The statutes were read and it was show** that
it .was ni».i>cees-wry ta ro affirm the
officials in power.
Tile validity of the clerk's bond-
was called into question, Aid. Robertson being one of the sureties He
was requested, on motion, to bring
forward the document at next meeting.
. Clerk Foley asked for two weeks'
extension fc-jr. completion of assess
ment roll. Granted, on motion of
Aid. Barber und Worden.
Aid. Worden brought up the question of appointing a regular auditor,
his remarks being supported by Aid.
McCallum. The council agreed ou
the subject, but nothing was done.
Aid. Worden said the chief of police
was in difficulties over the collection
of the dog tax, because of the mix-up
by the old council. There was dog
talk ot all descriptions for half an
hour or so. Then tbe clerk was instructed to order tiie chief of police to
bring in all the debatable receipts.
Aid.Worden wanted to know when
the finance commit'ce would meet.
Chairman Robertson said Akt Nichol
would be up in a few days and the
committee conld then meet before
tbe 15th.
Aid. McCallum did not agree with
such proceedings, and Iiis worship
ordered that io future.all committees
must report at meeting to lowing the
date the business was referred to
Council adjourned till following
night, when the loan bylaw was advanced a stage.
Tbe anniversary services at the
Methodist church Sunday were well
st tended and successfully conducted.
Rev. J. H.White, of Nelson, was the
preae>heron both occasions and his
discou-rses were most hopeful and inspiring. On Monday evening an entertainment was held in the church,
every seat i* tho building being occupied. Tlio following programme
was give"*-**. Song, Miss Bennett; anthem, the- sAoiir; song. Miss l'urdy.of
New Denver; address, "Some moulding forces.of 20th Century Civilization," Rev. Mr. White; cornet solo,

Rev. A. E. Roberts presided at the
entertainment and gave a persuasive
money-producing talk, obtaining
numerous subscriptions to tho building fund. All told tbe combined-services netted $141.25 towards paying
off tho debt on the church.
the returns will be high, judging from
the sack assays of the owners. No
work is being done on the property
at present, as it has been tied up on a
30-day option to Pittsburg capital.
Those holding the option state they
will lift the agreement and prosecute
active development within a month.
Proaparaaa CisassHllau ar tha Company'a
W. Di Wrighter (of tha Tron Horse
mine, Ten Mile), W. 0. Jones, and
M. C. Dunne, of Spokane; W. J. Wilson, of Nelson, and Thomas McGui-
gan, of Sandon, were elected trustees
of the American Boy Mining Company, at the annual meeting of the
shareholders held in Spokane last
week. There were 1,166,201 shares
represented at thc meeting out ofthe
1,286,000 shares issued.
A resolution was introduced by A.
W. Siegel tbat no officer of tbe company shall receive any salary during
the coming vear, except tbo manager
at the mine and the secretary, and
that a report of the condition of the
mine and financial standing of the
company be printed and sent to the
stockholders quarterly. The resolution wss adopted.
The report of Manager Thomas Mc
Guigan shows 1738 feet of tunneling
and drifting, 1360 feet of raise, and
5122 cubic yards of stoping. The
mine shipped 1743 tons uf ore, netting
the company $45,962.28, or a net profit after paying all expenses at thn
mine of $5887.   Mr. McGuigan said:
"I estimate that the ore in transit
to the smelters will clear all of the
indebtedness at tha mine. Aside from
this the company has an indebtedness
of bnt $1600. With the splendid
showing in the min*' there is every
reason to believe the property ean be
made a dividend payer within the
next f«*-w months.
"There is between $50,000 and
$00,000 worth of ore in sight, and
steps are to be taken at one* to drive
tunnel No. 4, which wa estimate will
strike the same ore -abute in -hich.
we are work1ng"tn tunnel No. 3. The
tunnel to the ore chute will not exceed 120 feet in length. The pay
streak in No. 3 averages two a d a
b.ilf feet wide and assays from 75 to
SI per cent lead and 150 ounces of
silver. We have already followed
tho paystreak in No. 3 a distance of
35 feet
"The company now bas employed
at the mine a force of 22 men. Of
this number 22 are practical miners,
all of whom are taking ont ore."
. ,   aftkrmath of election.
Kditoh Dkill:
Sir,—I seo by last week's Drill
that the foreman from the Transfer
called at your office and stated he did
not discharge myself and partner for
coming down to vote at the late municipal election, but because wo stavod
down too long. For the benefit of
the public I wish to say that wo left
the Transfer after two o'clock on tlie
afternoon of election day te vote.
The foreman left tbe mine tho following morning and was in town before
noon, coming a distance of eight or
nine miles to give us our time.

.Statistics published from   time   to
time show tho number ot deaths occurring throughout the country l'rom
consumption   to be as great   as the
numbei  caused by all other prevent-
iblo diseases    combined.      lt is    no
W«   der, 'lii'refore,    that the medical
friiix-ini  .     aas at last awakened    to
the fact that tho most urgent means
must be taken to prevent its further
spread and to teach the public that
while the disease is readily communicated from one person to another, it
im not  necessarily  inherited,   though
tho  tendency to  it may  *"ie.      It    is
therefore of  the    utmost importance
that   peoplo with weak lungs should
tako tho greatest care of themselves
to    prevent    consumption  taking    a
hold   upon   them.     Pure, out-of-door
air, lots of sunshine, wholesome food
and a good  tonic medicine to    keep
tho blood rich, red and pure.will en-'-
able anyone to resist thc inroads of
the   disease.      As a blood    forming
tonic, there is uo medicine the I'rjual
of   Dr    Williams'   I'ink Pills.    J lose
pills    where freely   and   fairly used,
will strengthen the   weakest constitution,  and   have cured many s*a*cf<
of consumption when   taken  in .  hs
Oft:ly   stages.   Proof ot this is givs.u
in the case of Mrs. Abram Henry, of
C'harlottetown, P. E. I,   To a reporter of the Islander who called   upon
her,   Mrs.'Henry said ;    "A few years
ago   1  found   myself growing weak
and pale and   emaciated.      1     took
various-   medicines   ou tlie advice of
friends, but none of   them appeared
to do me   any good, and   two years
ago   my condition became so   much
worse that I was obliged to take to
my bed and call    in   a doctor,  who
said that    my    lungs were affected,
and that I was going into consumption,  and he told my mother,    who
was mostly in attendance upon   mc,
that my recovery was very doubtful.
1 grew gradually weaker and weaker.
1 could not sit up for five minutes ;
my lungs pained mo ;  1 coughed se-
verelj,   lost  almost    all     desire  lor
fosid, and when I did eat 1 found it
difficult  to retain food on my stomach.'   1 fell away in weight from J 48
pounds to 100 pounds, and I do not
think any of my friends expected lo
see ma get better. But some of them
urj^ed me to try Dr.  Williams'  Pink
I Pills, nnd I decided to do so.   1 be-
igan hy .taking one pill a day, for my
|stomach was very vyeuk,  but I  was
soon abe to  increase this  to    three
pills    a    d.iy, . and    finally    as   my'
strength wus .increasing" under- their
use, I took'   nine pills a duy.     The
chuni-'i' which came with the* uso of
the pills was little short of miraculous, and so marked and rapid that
insjae. of two months after I  began
thiMr  use,  I was  able to  leavo   my
bed and move about the house,  nn.l
soon after I was able to walk about
ih the open air and make short visits
jto niy friends.   On one of these occasions I met the doctor who had attended me, and he askod me what 1
ha 1 been taking that had made such
an     improvement,   I   replied   that   I
hud  been taking Dr.  Williams'   Pink
Pills,  and  he   said  'all  right,     continue them; they won't hurt you anyway.'   Well, I continued taking I hem
until  I    hnd  used    seventei-n  lisxi-s,
with the result that I never felt (utter thnn I do  now—not even  in rhy
girlhood dnys.      It is more thnn    n
year since I,stopped taking the p'lls,
and you  can. see for yourself   what
they did for    me.   I    may sny,  too.
that my weight hus increased to 137
pounds.    1  nm  not anxious  for  publicity, but when T think of what ths*
pills did for mc, I believe I ought to
sacrifice my own feelings for the benefit of some other poor sufferer."

How the Various Articles of Uaicn-
llne Dress Labor Against Goosl
Health-The Collai* Button. Per-
baps, May Be an Exception.
Clothes may not mnke the man, sccord-
Ing to the old maxim, but according to a
well kuown Chicago physician they may
unmake him with a facility that ought to
turn the fool killer green with envy.
"Go lato the big. modem furnishing
house," said he, "and you can scarcely
put your linger upon an article of wearing
apparel that isn't either murderously
menacing or insistently detrimental to
health. In fact, you might arraign ull
clothing with a good deal of common sense
•nd consistency.
"In the first place, we breathe through
our bodies just as truly as we breathe
through our nostrils. You mny prove this
by varnishing a man's body. Not all the
work bis lungs can do will keep him from
smothering to death. Then, just to the
extent that clothing Interferes with tiie
functions of the skin, to thnt extent it is
"Among nil the murderous forms of
dress underclothing takes the lead, nnd of
this cotton nnd linen garments are the
chief offenders. The cotton shirt especially is a vicious thing. When it has become damp from perspiration, it is virtually airtight, and a draft striking it converts it into a cold storage lining, which
could not be bettdt designed for pneumo-
■ia. A garment of genuine wool tukes up
this perspiration and the warmth of the
body under it evaporates the moisture.
" 'Flannelette' in thia cntegory of on
derwenr is especially vicious. There may
be no thread of wool in it, and the cnrs>
ful combing out of the inner cotton fibers
of the garment makes only ■ still further
receptacle for clammy moisture from the
hody. Chronic colds, sore throats nnd
even consumption mny result from lhe
continuance of this kind of undergarment.
"The ordinary vest, worn by all male
kind, is one of the most insidious of murderous garments. The vest of a winter
suit is especially heavy in front and Is
made of wool; at the back it Is cotton,
'farmer's satin' or perhaps thin satin.
Such a combiuntiou could not better fur
ther all lung troubles. Under the shoulder blades a man's lungs nre much nearer
to the surface thnn they are in front and
much more likely to be attacked by congestions that follow cold. If men had a
proper regard for health,, they would Insist that their tnilors make their vests of
the same material nil the way around.
"The ordinary silk muffler is a particularly vicious thing. II may keep one's
collar dean, but likewise It may send one
to a place where collars are not ns*esled.
Muffling the throat at best is certain to
advance the possibility of threat and lung
affections. Tbe muffler Is something that
is easily forgotten, and for a man who is
used to lt to go out without it between
Nov. 1 and April I is to Invite an almost
certain Inflammatory attack in the throat
or Inngs. Indeed, no tnnttrr how carefully one may seek td drop the thing in the
spring, it nearly always gives him at least
■ parting cold.
"Footwear always has been detrimental
to the general health. No portion of the
body is more exact it.g in the matter of
free pores than tlie feet, yet they are covered often in cheap stockings, colored
with poisonous dyes, and then covered
Into tight pointed toed shoes tbat squeeze
tbem out of all semblance to a natural
foot. The Inside line of tbe feet, which
should be perfectly straight, becomes
crooked sround sn enlarged joipt. the big
toe la turned in, and half of the natural
functions of the feet are strangled.' Then
when a rubber sandal—or, worse, an are-
tic overshoe—is drawn on the foot the
work Is complete.
"Garters as wsirn by both men snd women are bad. By compressing the veins
ef the leg shore or below the knee they
hinder the return of tbe hlood to the heart
and lungs, and at limes this congestion is
such as to congeal the blood' in the limbs,
wilh fatal results. Such garters at the
heat are conducive to varicose veins, and
•t all times they tend to cold -feet. The
wise person who would bold up hia stockings uses the suspender, garter, hanging
from the waist

suspenders off your shoulder's for the
necessary freedom,
"Even the stiff hat hns a hard reputation: by compressing the blood vessels supplying nutriment to thc hnlr this hl'iod
supply is cut off and baldness is one qf
the results.
"To a man working et a desk a high

Old Time Rnlea For tlie Tnlsle by tho

Tlmt our ancestors were not so well
managed as we tire Is evident from the
following rules, Which were laid dowu
by Tomuiasln von ZlrkTer, a German
poet, In regard to the conduct of a host
and his guest at n dinner party. These
singular maxims were recently unearthed and hnve now been reprluted:
"Every host should' take earc that

should, behave properly and should be

"A guest should not eat all h1-r*rend
before the first dishes nre serve-], neither should lie eat with both hands nor
drink nor talk When his mouth Is full.
"it is not polite to turn toward one's
neighbor and to ofTcr blm a "Wl-necu'p
from which one Is still ilrinklng.   ;
"One should not ent greedily end
hastily, ns though the dinner hnd been
paid for, neither sliould oue tnke nny
food from his neighbor's plnte. In a
wor.l, each person should am-pit what
is offered and nsk for nothing else.
"When thore is sonic one on the right

left hand. .* .-.

"It Is Improper to place one's bnnd In

some food from It.
"One should always have thc hnnds

the same dish nre likely to become disgust est.
"A guest should never put; his elbows on the table, neither sllonhl lw
