Two Men in Field for tbe Mayoralty anil
Nine for this Aldermen -Nomination,
Pa*. Off Quietly—Elections are Set
for Tomorrow.
Saturday last was nomination day
for the first civic elections and the
event passed off in an exceedingly
quiet manner. It was about 1 o'cloek
when the first nomination was handed into II. K. Jorand, and the whole
proceeding occupied but a few minutes. A handful of curious citizens
were keeping cases on the returning
officer's stand, but beyond that nothing out of the way was to be noticed. Following were the nominations: For mayor—A. York, by
Messrs. McCallum and McNeish;
D. 1). Robertson, by Messrs. Barber
and Foley. For aldermen—A. B.
Barber, by Messrs. Foley and Fife;
1'. A. Bradshaw, by Messrs. Smith
and Worden; H.D.Curtis, by Messrs.
McCallum and Bradshaw; J. G. Mc
Callum, by Messrs. Curtis and Mc
Helen* D. Nichol, by Messrs. Armstrong and Bradshaw; A. C.Smith,
by Messrs. Br. dshaw and Worden;
A. E. Teeter, by Messrs. Crawford
and Rogers; VV. E. Worden, by-
Messrs. Bradshaw and Smith; T. D.
Woodcock, by Messrs. Bradshaw and
The elections take place tomorrow,
so the agony will soon be over.
Many additional names have been
added to the voters' list, making an
aggregate of close to 90.
On the 2i(th the new council will
meet for the despatch of business.and
the new board of license commissioners will probably assemble di
recti v after the council adjourns.
Flnt ">l sin ill put Meeting.
Tuesday evening the first munici
p;il ineeti:ig was hold in the Music
Hall, to discuss uivic mutters. Between CO and 70 citizens turned out,
with mayoralty candidate Robertson
mid aliierui'iuio. aspirant* Barber.
Worden and Smith. D. S McVannel
was clecti id cliainmin and Ben'Rob-
ertsoii was pat in Rs-Mcretary'. The
proceedlnirs passed otf in a <piict I
manner, lasting about 40 minutes,
tlio reason being that the candidates
decided to hold an expression of their
views for a later date. A resolution
was passed requesting A. York, who
wns chninuan of the committee on
incorporation, to present a detailed
statement ofthe costs of incorporation
toilate. This evening another public meeting ii advertised, nt the same
place, and ail the candidates are to
be on deck. The civic situation is to,
be thoroughly disouned, so that the
council -to be will have a practical
Idea of what they arc Qpagainst.
Full preparations have been made
for the big Labor demonstration and
picnic here, on Tuesday and Wednesday next, and there is certain to
be   a  big crowd  and  a good time.
The C.P.R. have been liberal in regard to rates and tram service and
are doing what thev can to help the
affair along. Rates of one and a
quarter are in vogue between Sandon, Nelson and way points; from
Boundary point*, single fare; from
Rossland $2, all tickets being good
for two days. Passengers from the
south come by regular trains; from
Sandon, special leaving there at G.30
Bills are up announcing the programme and prizes, and there is
enough in sight to give plenty of
amusement for both days. Assurances have been received from the
various Unions for a large attendance
and all the mines In the camp will
grant a lay-off to their forces. The
list -of speakers will comprise the
most prominent men in the country.
At the picnic grounds men are em
ployed putting things in shape and
clearing ont the underbrush. A.
York has obtained for the committee
from Frank Fletcher, the sole right
to erect booths and sell refreshments
on his bind Mr. Fletcher also added
$20 to the prize list. Slocan will use
her visitors white next week.
For a town that is mostly so dacent an' quiot,
