City Clerk Foley K-ipiirU 011 Hla Trip to
Nelson—Mssst Cancel City I'ookss Ordered unsl l»ay the Cs>Ht»—Not Much
Ittssiiis'ns, Transacted.
Council met on Monday evening,
Aid. Woodcock and Barber being
absent, (^uitc a number of citizens
were in attendance.
Routine business disposed of, a
communication wus read from the
clerk, repotting upon his trip to Nelson in questof municipal information.
Mayor York, in commenting on the
report, thought the clerk had exceeded his authority in purchasing a seal,
as cuts only should have, been secured for submission to the council. The
two big hooks for keeping track of
tho city's 1i11anc.es, which were ordered by ths clerk, were also beyond
his authority. Thecouncil had only
$H>00 to go upon this year, and the
cost of the books, estimated nt $40 j
each, was too heavy. There was no
use in squandering money. Other
towns got along with cheaper books,
and he was certain a set could be got
for one quarter the price. There was
no hope for financing heavy bills.
City   Clerk   Foley said he would I
stand the difference between the cost.'
of these books and the books considered to be necessary.
Aid.Bradshaw suggested that there
was no use getting cheap books, as
Sandon and other places bad had to
pay heavily for Suitable books.   He j
moved that the books be accepted.
The mayor said lie would not sane-1
tion any such heavy expenditure.
A   desultory   discussion   followed j
thereupon, Aid. Worden statin-* that!
he was not in favor of Mr. Foley ne- J
curing books for the   city, as   this
place could run Itself.
After more crossttring on the subject, Aid. Bradshaw and Smith ninv
nd that the order f.-r  the  books lie
cancelled.   Carried.

A communication was reml from

receipt of minutes re police magistrateship.
Clerk Foley's report was ordered
fyled, together with Mr. Stubbs' letter.
Aid. Barber asked for information
regarding Mr. Green4* letter, as also
the motion of the council on the sub

Bishop Newnhnm, of Moosonee, ac-
conipanisid by his wife and three
children, passed through Toronto and
Montreal antl then went on btiard the
steamship Lake Champlaln, which
left recently (or England.
'lhe bishop ctuiit- tlown from his
diocese sm snow-shoes, a distance of
850 niilea, which ho covered in sixteen days. lie left Moose Fort (or
I'tuiory) on February 7, on a morning so cold Unit liis nose was frost-
biits-n at the start, lie was accompanied by ftsui- I ml inns, who hauled
ihe infill, untl his food anil bedding,
,'lc., dogs belllg of BO use on this
trip. 11 is Indian friends doubted if
lis* rouUl keep up with them, but they
found that he was always with then)
at lhe end of the march. They were
excisediugly kind nnd court eons to
him. The 250 miles to Abittibi was
covered in twelve slays; another 100
miles, to where a slplgh and team
could,bo got, tsssiU four /lays. This
could hardly have been done if the
weather hud not been very line and
continuously  cold.
Tho reason why dogs could not bo
used on this journey was that tho
posts in that region ure so far apart
that tlogs are not able to carry enough food for Iheiiiselvs's, along with
passengers' and other baggage.
No houses, of course, were passed
on the way, and only two Indian
tents; Ihe parly carried no tent, but
slept in the open air. The average
program was as follows: At 4.30 a.
in. on*     of    the    Imliiiiis arose and
lighted a huge fire, and a little later
the others and the bishop turned out
of  their  blankets  or  bags.     It  then
took    ni'iirly    two     hours to warm
Rocks,  shoes ami  outer clothes, and
put   them on,   thaw and cook frozen
food,   take  breakfast   and   pack    up.

Steady  tramp of throe hours,  a halt
Was  made,  a   brush camp  built,    a
lire  lit    and    lunch eaten.     Another
throe   hours' tramp followed,   then
another hall  anil  dinner.    This gs-n-
i.-rally    ended     ubout   three o'clock,
leaving two or two und a half hours
for the last tramp.    The last    halt
was     made   about    ."i.!t0 o'clock, or
when a good spot wus found.    This
wits  tlie worst  hour of the day   for
the bishop,  for there was not    very
ninth work for him to do of a kinil
lo keep    him     warm,  and after tlie
fatigues of the day hud a little low
ered tho vital  forces, and when    the
cold of Iho night  was rapidly   coming on,    it     wus  impossible to keep
hands nnd feet from freezing unci the
body from shivering till the lire was
blazing.    The Very next thing was a
hot cup of tea, and then for an hour
or so they Just sat und scorched and
roasted,      drying     their      Steaming
clothes upon them, nnd bunging   up
moccasins and dulTles and socks    to
dry.    Ths'ii  another  hour   was spent
in thawing food, cooking antl eating,
after which the pipes wero lit,    and
moro drying was Indulged in for   a
time, then prayers.    After awing that
the fire was safely confined and   on
the decline, all turned in.  the bishop
into     his  niriboi>-skiii  bag nnd  tlie
men  into tholr rabbit-skin  blankets.
The bishop was born in Somersetshire, England, in \Hr>'2, antl came to
Montreal     in    187J1.    lie graduated
sfrom Modill  University in 1878. and
was ordained the same year,    lie Ixt-

Onr millionaires think $75 n gallon
for rare old Madeira an utterly impossible price simply because their tastes
are blunted by champagne, untl they
care no more for a bottle of Welsh Unserve, Nowton-f'tmlon or CbllllngS*
wortli-Oglethorpe than for a cheap
sherry. In lhe funions cellars of the
Hotel de Ville at Bremen there nre a
dozen eases of holy wine which have
beeu preserved for 230 years. A merchant figures out  thut  if the cost of
maintaining the collars,  piij-iauut of

drop could not be sold without loss under $200.
It Is probable '.hat this very old wlue
Is worthless on account of "starvation."
Charles Bellows, our ablest authority
on Madeira, says that It becomes
"starved" after feeding upon Its own
lees for 110 or 40 .veins. ""It seems to
uie that It is very human and i-cipiiivs
companionship." In- says, "iiemljohns
of lhe untile variety should be blended.
The liiaiTliige of the two wines would
probably give the lees more character,
ami ihe wine would thus continue to
Improve. This certainly ought lo be
done as a lonle after the Madeira has
been  r>0 years  in  glass."

The peculiarities cf asthma nre well
known, and one New York woman
thinks thnt she has more than usual
reason lo complain of lhe vagaries of
the disease. She l.atl always lived In
the lower part of the city on one of the
avenues distant from the two rivers
and had suffered hi uo unusual degree
from usllima when the weather was
not unfavorable. The doctor was not
consulted when her husband bought a
house In another part of the city, and
It Ib Indeed doubtful If he could have
foreseen the efl'eci upon her of living

A recent investigation into the
resources of various cities in Great
Dritain has made some interesting
discoveries. It has been found, for
example, that the people of the
Yorkshire manufacturing town of
Bradford have to pay more than
twice us much rates as those of thc
seaport of Bristol. Hero are two
large centers, each with a population of over 300,000 people, and yet
the fee for living in the modern
Yorkshire manufacturing town i.s
more than double the fee for living
in the rare old episcopal city on tho
banks of lhe Avsm. Thi'se two
towns aro not alone as contrasts.
Here are, first, half a dozen towns

which have allowed landlords to reap

These Symptoms Are
A Warning to You
That the blood is losin<*; its richness and the very life itself is being sapped from brain and nerves. You feel weak
and run clown. You -ret pale aud sallow, with dark rings under the eyes. You lose flesh.and the food you eat does not
seem to nourish you. Your hands and feet get cold. Yon
are nervous and irritable. Littiei things worry you# You
suffer with headache, neuralgia and nervous dyspepsia. You
grow melancholy and depressed at times, find your memory failing  and feel  unable to concenirate your thoughts.
This is the train of symptoms which lead to nervous prostration and paralysis or land their victim in the epileptic hospital or insane asylum. Nearly everybody needs a nerve restorative and blood builder at certain periods in their life. When
nerve cells are being wasted away more rapidly than nature can
replace them collapse is certain, unless some means is used to
assist in enriching the blood and creating new nerve force. Dr.

In the town of Lindsay and surrounding country no man is better

years ngo he was owner and captain
of the first steamier that navigated

It Is Interesting to reen.ll "thnt, Just
is Edward VII sif (England chose his
second baptismal name as the oue by
.vhith he wished to be designated
when he mounted the threne, so likewise his great-uncle, William Henry,
would hnve preferred to be known as
Henry IX. One of the reasons for this
luefei-enf-e was the desire to establish
lawI'ul right to ,-i title which had already been arrogated by the cardinal
ef York, the last of the Stuart pretenders. When the question, however,
.nine up for discussion In the privy
council, the hitter decided In favor of
King William IV. This story was told
hy the king himself to Miss Helen
Lloyd, the governess of his children,
lie added that the privy council was
moved to this choice partly by fear of
exeilffig the superstitious fears of the
populace, who still bore In their memory a prophecy dating from the seventeenth century, which runs us follows:

It is understood thc Chinese commission will report to tho Dominion
government in favor of the exclusion
of tbe Chinese and the restriction of
•tbe Japanese. Once more the west
-has declared for the country to be
preserved to the use of white men and
it is up to the federal authorities to
•make a record forthemselves.having
-always the fate oi thc Chapleau coins-mission report and the prohibition
iplebiscite before their eyes.
With tlie fishermen on the Fraser,
the miners at Rossland, and the
trackmen on the C.P.K. all on strike,
thc necessity ofa nicasireofconipul-
-fjory arbitration is apparent to all.
Ho evidence in opposition to it can be
.advanced. The interests of the public and the welfare of the province
•demand direct legislation that will
nullify the evil results of industrial
-disputes. Compulsory arbitration
•would meet every case. Get it on
.the statute book.
The Nelson Tribune says Slocan is
starting off wrong as a municipality,
dieing a house divided against itself.
Differences of opinion are bound to
arise, even at council boards, nnd it
would be a mighty funny world if
they didn't.   Thc  local municipal
machinery cannot lie expected to be
in smooth running order in a month,
any more than in other plnccs, but it
is wearing down into sbapo and may
■lie looked for to do good work. Econ
•oinv is the by word of the council and
'the members will not plunge thc city
into heavy debt.   There has been no
.mistake made by the government iu
giving the people of Slocan a chance
to govern themselves, and if thc Tribune will have patience that fact will
.be demonstrated.
-W. II. Sandiford, manager of the
.Bosun mine,  New  Denver,  told  n
Vancouver Province man the other
day that "the cryingnecd ofthe Slo-
-can country was a government smelter on Slocan lake."   Other mining
men have expressed the same opinion, as the output of ore would be
larger and the net returns considerably   increased.     Many   properties
now sidle in the camp would be encouraged  to   active   development,
while promising prospects innumerable throughout the lake country in
particular would receive attention.
•No place on the lake can compare
with Slocan as the site for a smelter,
Here, apart from tho excellent com-
..munication provided by  water and
-rail, there arc all the advantages nature can bestow.   Water power of the
best can.be easily obtained, with an
abundance of room for the necessary
buildings.   Close   by  are huge de
posits of pare lime, and on the various creeks may be found largo bodies
.of iron ores, thus satisfying the flux
question.   Slocan Is also the gateway
•to tho most extensive dry ore belt in
-the province, the richness of which
is  demonstrated   by the Arlington,
AU wet ores from the upper Slocan,
via the C.P.R., now  pass  through
here to Trail or Nelson, and why not
have them stop here?   Coke only is
required and it cau bo landol  as
■cheaply hero us at Trail.    Kaslo is
oiot in it with Slocan as a smelter
fsite tor the Slocan ores.   The former
is miles away from its supply and
fluxes, while here everything is convenient.    By all means let a smelter
sbe bulk ou Slocan lake and this city

R. P. Rithet,of San Francuco.head
man in the Arlington Mines, Ltd., as
well us in the Ricowilabi Mines, op
erating the Speculator group,arrived
in on Monday, with his son, J. A.
Rithet, and K. V. Munro, of Victoria.
The party was met here by Supt.
DuBois and at once went to the Arlington, spending a couple of days
Inspecting that property andtheSpec-
ulator. Mr. Rithet's operations in
the camp aro conducted in a close
manner and his companies are at all
times averse to newspaper notoriety.
Occasionally inklings of what it*- going on or in contemplation may be
picked up, but. for the most part,the
respective managements prefer to go
on with their developments without
talk. It is on the boards that the
otiioes at the Arlington are to be
doubled in size, new bunkhouses put
up, and the force of men employi-d
considerably Increased by fall.
Since Mr. Rithet's last' visit here,
the holdings of his companies on
Springer creek have been largely
. ugmentcd and arc being constantly
added to. On many of these outside
claims work is being .prosecuted,
with a view to getting crown grants.
At present taking in the Speculator,
Arlington, tbe sawmill, and other
centres, the combined companies have
about lf>0 or more men on the payroll. There is no outfit in the country
thnt is working more carefully and
with better success than is Mr.Rithet
and hisconfreres. They havebrought
the dry ore belt of this camp to the
front, and whatever prosperity it enjoys is due almost entirely to the Arlington's operations. J. Frank Collom is the managing director of both
tho Arlington and Ricowilabi companies and his inherent shrewdness
in business affairs has brought his
concerns with rapid progress to the
pinnacle of success. Associated with
him is Wm. Thomlinson, as superintendent ofthe Speculator, and W. F.
DuBois, superintendent of the Arlington.
