Naden Witlidrwas His Resignation.���Act-  tion to Fill North Ward Vacancy Deferred  Until Monday.  Thinking- possibly that the city  council would put on another act in'the  farce coniedy.at the special meeting-on  Thursday evening, a few spectators  graced the bare chinkless wall of the  court room with their presence. The  farce was reserved for another nig-ht  and the council did a turn in the heavy  legal parts of the municipal programme. The leading- man was the  city solicitor. He was armed with the  consolidated statutes and extracts  from the decisions of learned.judges in  the province of Ontario where they  sometimes have municipal troubles of  their own. His worship Mayor Hardy  presided and seated around the council  board were Aid. Naden,- Galloway,  Sutherland and Campbell.   ;  Aid. Naden rising- to a question of  privileg-e announced that as the council  had refused to take action on his resignation he decided to withdraw the  samei Aid. Galloway moved amotion  to the effect that Aid. Naden be allowed to withdraw his resignation. The  motion was seconded by Aid. Campbell and carried unamioiisly.      ,  Aid. Naden's withdrawal of resignation shortened the list of matters upon  which the city solicitor was to advise  the council. Mr. Leamy dealt with  the matter of-resignations however  and quoted the law to the effect that  a council was quite free to refuse a  resignation and that the courts could  issue a mandamus forcing- an alderman to serve for the term for which he  was elected.  Dealing- with the vacancy created by  Dr. Jakes' resig-nation Mr. Learning-;  believed that the council could follow  the same course as they did in Ross-  land and under section 82 of the Municipal Elections Act appoint a duly  qualified man to full the vacancy. Mr.  Leamy was always of the opinion that  Dr. Jakes was not qualified. He held  that since he was not properly qualified the council could appoint a man to  fill the vacancy. The alternative was  to order a bye-election.  Aid. Galloway asked about Aid.  Nelson's qualifications. . Mayor Hardy  replied that they had no word from the  coast yet. The3r were waiting- for  some of the " would be purifiers of  municipal politics " to take action to  unseat him.  The council adjourned until Monday  when the question of. filling-1 the  vacancy will be finally settled.  No Change Wanted.  The g-ood people of Nelson and Ross-  land are getting- unduly excited over  the customs ports in the Kettle River  district. The residents of Nelson be-1  gau by petitioning the Dominion  government to have the customs offices  in the Kettle River district attached to  4  ^^>  t wjfrn-wpiim. .

The people of Rossi and  at once  took  the matter up  and   passed the  following- resolution :  To  the  Controller of  Customs,   Hon.  William Patterson, On t.','Dear Sir:  "Whereas, it has come to the attention of the Rossland Board of Trade;  that a movement is on foot to attach  the custom outports and preventive  offices in the Kettle River district, B.  C, to the Nelson port of entry, said  offices being attached at present to the  port of New Westminster ; and  Whereas, Said offices are- all within  the. boundaries of the Rossland Provincial Electoral district is in most intimate business relations with the said  city of Rossland and in no way connected with the city of Nelson, therefore be it  Resolved ; That the citizens of Rossland protest respectfully ag-ainst the  customs outports and preventive offices  of the Kettle River district being- attached to any other port of entry than  Rossland, and be it further  Resolved, that said customs outports  and preventive offices ought to be attached to the port of Rossland until  such time as the customs business of '  the said district warrants one of the  said outports being- created a port of  entry."  The last clause of the above resolution should convince the Minister of ��� ���  Customs that there is no necessity for  a change. The Kettle River district  can stagger under the incubus of being attached to New Westminster until transportation facilities are afforded  when Boundary Creek will be a greater  arid more important district than  either Rossland or Nelson and it may  then be in the public interests to attach  the offices in those too ambitious citys  to a central office in Boundary Creek.  The Engineer's Figures.  The report submitted by the. city-  engineer at the last meeting of the  council should be carefully considered  by the ratepaj-ers. The very first  item $2,350 for completing the waterworks is entirely inadequate to meet  the requirements. It is quite possible  that the sum will lay the pipe and  patch up the present dam. More is  wanted however. With a proper dam  and reservoir no better system for fire  protection can be found anywhere  than that which Twin creek will  afford. Neither the present dam nor  the reservoir can be considered permanent. The present basin is too  small and it will scarcely be filled nn-  less something is done to stop the flow  of water which percolates through  many portions of the dam. A suffici-  cient sum ought to be voted for waterworks to .build, a /substantial dam, to  clean a large resevoir and to do everything that will make Twin creek  servicable for fire protection purposes  for years to come.  ICE HOUSE COLLAPSED.  Several Men Injured by The   Roof of an Ice     ���  House,Falling in.  Several men were injured  yesterday  afternoon when the   roof of the  building in which Hugh McKee was storing  several tons of ice fell in.    There were  about a dozen men in   the  building  at  the lime, packing ice when  without  a  moment warning   the roof came tumbling down.

Mart Corns who has a contract  for the crosscut tunnel on the Combination mine in Providence camp was  in the city this week. The tunnel is  now in about 45 feet. It is expected to  tap the ledge at 400 feet. The tunnel^  will tap the ledge at a depth ol 200 '  feet. The Combination has -a vein of  exceedingly rich ore. Ass<i\s as high  as SI ,000 to the ton have been teceived.  There is a CS foot shaft on the property. The Combination is owned by  the Combination Mining Co'rp-inj in  which Spjkane parties arc prmcip-illy  interested.  ..������'������ V':a:K!J:.;i-?-ilt��';?^  <���<!��� THE.

With all due deference to Mr.  Leamy's leg-al opinion, we think the  council has been ill-advised throug-h  his suggestion that the vacancy in the  North Ward caused by the resignation  of Dr. Jakes can be filled by the council  without reference to the electors. The  case and that in Rossland to which he  referred are not analogous. It is a  moot question weather the Rossland  council did not stretch the law in appointing Aid. Clute. In Rossland Aid.  Barrett resigned because he was not  properly  qualified, just  as Dr. Jakes  resigned. The Rossland council accepted the" resignation just as the  Greenwood council did and ordered a  new election. Nomination day was  fixed and the electors nominated four  candidates. Before election day all  of the candidates withdrew. The  council then took the position that the  electors had neglected to fill the  vacancy and appointed Aid. Clute.  Judging from Mr.Leamy's remarks,  he bases his contention on the leg-al  belief that Dr. Jakes was not qualified  and consequently the.people had not the  legal right to elect him and having  neglected to elect a properly qualified  person, the council may under section  82 of Municipal Election (Act appoint  an alderman. Mr. Leamy will agree  with us that this is a question of law  and not of fact. His opinion nor the  opinion of the council has no author-  ative weight as far as Dr. Jakes'  qualification is concerned. The council  has no authority to act on the assumption that Dr. Jakes' was a legal disqualification without a decision from  the courts. In the absence of such a'  decision the council is legally bound to  assume that he was regularly elected,  that his resignation was regular, that  the acceptance of that resignation was  regular and that the onlyi legal course  left for the council is to order a new  election.  There have been already too many  irregularities to warrant the council in  encouraging any more. No candidate  whom the council might appoint would  accept the position when his right to  take the seat would be questioned, and  when he and the city would likely be  plunged into litigation.  Section 82 of the Municipal Elections  act reads as follows : "In case, at any  annual or other election, the electors  from any cause fail, decline or neglect  to elect the requisite number of members of the council of a municipality  on the day appointed, the new members of the council elect shall appoint  as many qualified persons, including  mayor or reeve, if not elected, as will  constitute or complete the number of  members requisite ; and the persons so  appointed shall, if they accept office,  make.the necessary declarations under,  the same penalty, in case of refusal or  neglect as if elected."  A prominent ratepayer has sent  The Times a letter dealing with Aid.  Naden's resignation. As Mr. Naden  has withdrawn his resignation since  the letter was written, the writer will  agree with us that the necessity for its  publication has been removed.

M. Kellie, M.P. P., is the father  of the Truck Act. The object of the  measure is to make it a penalty for a  company to force men to board at the  company's boarding house or buy  goods at the company's store or pay  men in time cheques in lieu "of cash.  The provisions of the act apply only  to incorporated cities or within three  ' miles thereof. Mr. Kellie believing  c that the scalping of workmen's time  cheques is an abuse has introduced a  bill to amend lastyear's act making it  an offence punishable by a heavy fine  to scalp time cheques. *S��3��3  L. G. McPhillips member for Victoria has given notice to amend the  Alien'Labor Law. His amendments  are intended to rerhove the disabilities  against British companies which the  act now contains. He also intends  that all persons not British subjects  may purchase claims and own them by  inheritance or bequest.  Hon. Mr. Martin addressing a public  meeting in Victoria last week stated  that the government did not consider  ihat the magistrate should be a member of. either the police or licensing  boards. They did not consider that in  connection with licenses he should'be  mixed up in any way with matters  ���which might ^ come before him as  magistrate. As a police commissioner,  the magistrate conld hot fail to be  acquainted with the operations of the  police, and he was virtually their head,  yet under the present.system he had to  go into court and try cases in which he  was virtually the prosecutor. "We  propose to change the law," said Mr.  Martin, "so that' the magistrate shall'  not be a member of either of these  boards." -.''������'���'���  An act has been introduced cancelling all such appointments on June 30.  Old appointees may of course be reappointed.  Until recently the Dominion government was in the habit of appointing  Queen's Counsel. The Privy Council  decided that the appointment lay within, the rights of the provinces. The  Attorney-General has introduced an  act to appoint two Q. C's yearly.  Minlning And Commercial.  The regular meeting of the Mining  and Commercial association was held  in Rendell's hall on Wednesday evening. President Anderson was in the  chair:"* A letter was read from D. J.,  Matheson of Cascade, acknowledging  receipt of petition re the appointment  of resident gold commissioner and  government agent'and stating that  the taxpayers association of Cascade  would take the matter up.  In. response to a letter from J.  Roderick Robertson president of the  Nelson Board of Trade, the association  decided to urge upon the government  the desirability . of appropriating a  sum necessary to assure a B. C.  mineral exhibit at the Paris Exposition.  Other matters ��� relating to the district were discussed and the meeting  ���adjourned.    .  A gentleman who has just came over  from Nelson stated that there is a  warm contest between Hon. J. Fred  Hume and A. S. Farwell. In his opinion Mr'. Hume will be returned by an  increased majority.  KETTLE   RIVER   MINING  DIVISION.  Record of Mineral  Locations for  the  Week  Ending February   7, 1899.

The Seattle mining case is again  being" heard in the courts. The Seattle  Mining Company represented by Cum-  mings & Manly of Grand Forks are  the plaintiff. In 1897 Robert Clark  sold the Seattle to Hay & McCallum  and afterwards Cummings & Manly  induced Clark to sell to them. Hay &  McCalium brought suit to confirm the  sale to them and were successful.  Cummings & Manly are now endeavouring to recover Clarke's interest  in the 'claim after Hay & McCallum have been satisfied. Messrs.  Tupper, Peters and W. A.

Gen. Manager Rogers of the Parson  Produce Company', Winnipeg, and P.  J. Russell manager of the local branch  at Nelson, B. C. were in the city for  several days this week.

The only opposition to the by-lay conies  from those who believe 25 years too  long a time to grant a franchise.  There is considerable strength in this  objection but it should not be forgotton  that the defeat of the by-law means a  monoply for a company with a perpetual franchise.
