Firemen
Election to  Fill Vacancy in
Centre Ward to Be Held
June 1st
The regular bi-weekly session of
the city council was held in the
council chamber last night, all the
aldermen being present. In the absence of Mayor Hammar, the chair
was occupied by Aid. McCallum,
mayor pro tem.
A communication was received
from the secretary of the fire department, asking for a donation of 8100
for the sports to be held at the firemen's benefit on the 24th inst. Mr.
McCallum said it had been generally
understood at the beginning of the
year that no donations were to be
made during the present term. It
was, however, difficult to refuse the
request of the firemen, as it was a
volunteer department. On the other
hand, if granted, there was danger
of further requests being made later.
Aid. Henniger thought the council
would have to make tbe donation,
although he would rather see the
money expended on street improvements. On motion, the request was
granted.  - '
A communication was also read
from the chief of the fire department
respecting the, rate of remuneration
for firemen when on duty.
The following accounts were ordered paid:
Max Kuntz $ 25.00
J. M. Simpson      3.50
Geo. E. Massie    70.00
R. Gaw    28.75
H.E. Woodland      4.10
Canadian General Electric... 414.18
Evening Sun      4.01
B. C. Telephone Co     12.20
C. P. R.:    35.09
'Granby Consolidate...:  737.50
Black Hawk Livery :      2.00
R. F. Petrie    24.00
G. F. Transfer Co    23.90
Aid. Brown, of the cemetery com
mittee, reported progress, but no
definite arrangement for a new bury
ing ground had been made yet. He
was of the opinion that the proposed
site neais Smelter lake waB too far
away. He thought a nice location
could be obtained on the north side of
the North Fork opposite Ihe city. The
present cemetery, however, was the
most conveniently situated, and if
perfect title could be had to enough
ground to last for ten years, he favored securing and improving it.
Aid. McCallum had been placed on
the oommittee to co-operate with
the other members, and to investigate the title to the present grounds.
He thought a good title to the three-
acre plot could be secured at a reasonable rate. He hoped that the
city would grow fast enough that,
with ordinary health, it would fill
the present cemetery in ten years.
On motion, the committee was authorized to negotiate for title to the
present grounds, and as much more
land as might be deemed necessary.
Aid. Clements, chairman of the
water and light committee, reported
that at a conference with the fire
department, the following rate of remuneration  for firemen  had been
agreed upon: Call, 50 cents; per
hour when actually at work at fires,
$1.00; first team at fire station, $5.00;
team at station for false alarm, $2.50. *
This rate is the same  as   was  sugl.Work
gested  at the   last   meeting of the
council.    On motion of Aid. Brown
and   Henniger,    the    report    was
adopted. <
The matter of the er**Hion of a fire
station in the North addition was
brought up by Aid. Clements. He
submitted an estimate of $150 for a
14x20 building. He said he would
rather not see it erected, but as the
firemen in that part of the city had
set their hearts on having it, he
didn't think it would be wise to antagonize them. Aid. Hutton favored
building the station, and said if it
was erected the firemen would commence practice work at once. Aid.
Henniger thought that if the station
was -erected the firemen might not
use it, but do as they did in the
West ward—meet elsewhere. Aid.
Brown took the opposite view. On
motion of Aid. Brown and Hutton,
the request of the firemen was granted, the building not to cost more
than $150.
On the recommendation of City
Engineer Reid, the hours for free
city water for lawn sprinkling were
fixed between 5 and 9 a.m. and 5
and 8 p.m.
The firemen on duty at the Victoria hotel fire were allowed $3 each.
During a discussion regarding city
work, the aldermen appeared to be
uucnimous in the opinion that all
city work should be authorized by
the council; ot, in the event of urgency, by the board of works. The
street commissioner, it was thought,
did not have the power to undertake
improvements on his own responsibility.
Aid. Henniger expressed the opinion that if theie was any money
available for street improvements,
the contemplated work ou Winnipeg avenue should be carried out.
Aid. Clements reported that the
hand pumps had been removed from
the wells in the West ward und
stored. The water and light committee was authorized to dispose of
them to the best advantage of the
On motion of Aid. Clements and
Brown, the city clerk was authorized to call for tenders for the erection of a fire station in the North
addition, the bids to be opened at a
special meeting of the council next
Thursday evening.
On motion of Aid. Clements, it
was decided to hold an election to
elect an alderman to fill the vacancy
at present existing in the Centre
ward on the 1st of June, nominations to be made on the 29th inst.
Aid. Brown gave notice that at the
next meeting of the council he would
introduce a tax sale by law.
The council then adjourned.

The Fera Perjury Case
At the sitting of the assize court
in Nelson yesterday morning thc
case coming before Mr. Justice Morrison was that of Francisco Fera, of
Greenwood, charged with perjury
The story of tt.e prosecution was
that in October, 1899, Antonio Scar-
pelli wished to acquire a third interest in two mineral claims, the Victoria and the Two Brotheas. Patrick
J. Kennedy owned a third interest
in these claims, but his ownershi
was unrecorded, and was in the
name of Francisco Fera. In the beginning of November Antonio Scar
pelli produced $150 in cash ani
placed it on a table. At the same
time Fera produced a check for
8130, and, instead of Patrick J. Kennedy taking up the money tabled by
Scarpelli, he took up thc check and
the balance in the cash. Thc remainder of the cash was taken by
Fera. Fera said at the time that he
would rather Kennedy took the
check, so that if he got drunk he
could not say that he had not re
ceived the money. But at this time
Scarpelli received no acknowledge
ment of the $150 he paid over for a
ihird in the Victoria and the Two
Brothers. So, subsequently, on
December 0th, 1899, a document
was drawn up which set forth that
Scarpelli had paid over to Kcnnc
$130 for his third interest, and that
if Fera did not pay back the money
within a year, then this third inter
est should belong to Scarpelli. This
document is signed by Francisco
Fera, and is witnessed, under his
signature, by Gabriel Galizia and
Rafael Scarpelli. Last December
Scarpelli sued B'era before Judge
Leamy in the county court in this
city for certain sums, and among
these sums was this particular
8150. In defence Fera swore that
he had neither signed the acknowl
edgement referred to, nor had he
even seen the paper. This was the
perjury of which complaint was
made. The case will probably last
for two or three days.
A Force oF  IOOO Workmen
Will Be Employed For
One Year
Contract* for building 22 miles of
the Great Northern's Similkameen
valley extension, between Oroville,
Wash., and the international boundary line, have been let to Spokane
men. A thousand laborers will be
employed for a year, as the work is
unusually heavy. Material is being
rushed into the field, and operations
will be in full swing within a month.
L. E. Shields, of Simms & Shields,
general contractors for the Great
Northern, arrived in Spokane last
Saturday from St. Paul, and is now
on his way to Oroville. His firm
has the general contract for the
work. In an interview in Spokane
he is reported to have said:
'Subcontracts have been divided
among Winters, Parsons & Boomer,
Porter Bros., Jones & Onsued and
Caughran & Woldson of Spokane.
This particular piece of "Work was
contracted for now because it will
be needed, regardless of the final
route.
"Itis uncertain whether the road
will be bnilt to Oroville from Midway or from Republic. The Midway
route is 45 miles long, with 2>V per
cent grades for 17 miles eastward
from Oroville. Then, in addition,
steel must be laid on the present
grade, 15J miles long, from Curlew,
Wash., to Midway. The route from
Republic via West Fork and Bona-
parte creeks is 05 miles long, on a 1
per cent grade, and it is easy con
struction. That route would not
touch Loomis, or any other important points, between Republic and
Oroville. Although longer than the
Midway route, it would be much
cheaper to build.
"I can't say what route will be
adopted in reaching Oroville. I understand that thc railway company
is striving to get some changes in its
charter from the Dominion parliament at Ottawa, so as to permit it to
change its original project.
"Thc section from Oroville north
to thc boundary line'will run on
both sides of the river, with one importing bridge.
"As for the final route of the road
into tho Similkameen, I understand
that it is being held iu abeyance until a further examination of the resources—principally mineral—can
be made."
The last of the celebrated Nnn
Patterson murder case has been
heard, as the woman has been released on her own recognizance,
after three different juries had failed
to reach an agreement. As she left
the criminal courts building, iu
New York city, three thousand |ter-
sons cheered her.

The May number of Canada First
—the Canadian Prelerence League
magazine—contains an instructive
illustrated article on the Canadian
West by Senator Templeman, accompanied by splendid half-tone engravings of the senator and Hon.
Richard McBride. Canada First is
the handsomest publication issued
in the Dominion.-It should be read
by all who b'elieve that Canada is
first.
British Columbia has something
to be proud of in the result of its
exhibition at the Royal Horticultural Society's show in London recently. For fruit which has made
a journey of 3000 miles by rail and
3000 miles by steamer to carry off
the highest gold medal in competition with the pick of fruit grown in
the British Isles, some of it within
twenty miles ofthe place of exhibition, is a triumph indeed. Not only
will it conduce to. thc to the appreciation of British Columbia fruit in
the British markets (though at present such market is hardly needed),
but it will do much to attract immigrants of a better class to a land
which can show such productions.
It is expected that the Russian
and Japanese fleets will come together in a few days. Some of the
battleships will undoubtedly receive
nearly as fierce blows as are delivered
by the country town "knockers."

Proved in Mount Forest
Every doctor in this town tried his
best to relieve Mrs. J. Withom of
asthma; none succeeded. "For years,"
she states, "I was a dreadful sufferer;
nothing gave relief. At times I found
it necessary to have all the doors and
windows open toget my breath. When
in despair I heard of Catarrhozone. I
used it and now inivperfcetly oured."
This proves beyond a doubt that an
case of asthma is curable withCatarrli
ozone. No remedy so pleasant, none a
absolutely certain to thoroughly cure;
try Catarrhozone yourself; it's guar
anteed.  H. E. Woodland, druggist.
A. N. Irving Found  Watery
Grave at That Place Last
Friday
His Brother, J. G. Irving, and
Another Workman Have
Narrow Escape
Word was received in this city
last Sunday that Albert N. Irving,
well known here, had met his death
by drowning in the Kettle river at
Curlew last Friday while he and his
brother, J. G. Irving, and another
workman were endeavoring to break
up a am of sawlogs. The three men
were in a boat, and it appears that
when the jam broke they did not
have time to get out of the way of
the logs, one falling on thehoat, upsetting it and throwing the occupants
into the water. The unfortunate
man must have got cought under the
logs, as he did not rise to the surface again. J. G. Irving and the
other man also had a narrow escape,
but after a hard struggle in the icy
water they managed to reach the
shore. Up to yesterday the body
of the drowned man had not been
recovered.
Albert N. Irving was about 25
years of age. He was well known
in this city, and was well thought of
by everybody. He visited friends
here a couple of weeks ago. His
brother was for a number of years a
C.P.R. conductor, running between
Nelson and Midway. The two
bothers have been getting out, saw-
logs on the reservation during the
past winter, and at the time of'the
accident were engaged in rafting
them to the Yale-Columbia Lumber
company's mill at Cascade.
The two brothers came west from
Pictou county, Nova Scotia, where
an aged mother now resides. It is
only a short time since a sister ofthe
unfortunate man died in the east.
Her Skin Was Yellow
"I had only to try Dr. Hamilton's Pills
to appreciate their merit," writes Miss
Annie S. Bryce, of Woodstock. "Mv
system was out of order. My blood
was weak and thin. I had a nasty,
murky complexion. My skin was hard
and dry. The first box of Dr. Hamilton's Pills made a complete change.
I felt better at once. Healthy color
came into my face. In about three
weeks I was cured." Dr. Hamilton's
Pills effect an easy cure. Try these good
pills, 25c per box, or five boxes for$l,

WHY GO EAST
Over the sun-burned, sage brush
and alkali plains, when you may
just as well take a delightful, cool
and comfortable ride through the
heart of the Rocky Mountains in
view of the grandest scenery on the
American continent?
This you can do by traveling on,
the Rio Gmnde system, the far-
famed "Scenic Line of the World,"
the only transcontinental line passing through Salt Lake City, Glen-
wood Springs, Leadville, Colorado
Springs and Denver enroute to eastern points.
Three daily express trains make
close connections with all trains east
and west, and afford a choice of five
distinct routes of travel. The equipment of these trains is the best, including free reclining chair cars,
standard and tourist sleepers, a perfect dining ear service, and also
personally conducted excursion cars,
each in charge of a competent guide,
whose business is to look after t|ie
comfort of his guests. No more
pleasant and inexpensive means of
crossing tfye continent can be found
than is provided by these excursions.

Teachers and Pupils Will Have
a Chance at the Dominion Fair
Handsome Prizes Will Be Offered for Collective Displays
New Westminster, May 15.—A
British Columbia school exhibit is
to be made one of the features of
the Dominion exhibition. The educational advantages enjoyed by residents of this province, with various
samples of results, will be shown to
people from other parts of the world,
and in order that the display may
be on as large a fcc.de as possible, it
is necessary that teachers and pupils
begin at once to prepare exhibits.
Handsome prizes will be offered for
collective displays and for individual
work. These will include products
of manual training, kindergarten,
brush work, penmanship, drawing,
composition, etc. The minister of
education, who is deeply interested
in the proposed exhibit, has been
asked to permit the superintendent
of elucaiion to take charge of it.
, New Westminster, May 15.—One
ofthe latest attractions secured for
thc Dominion exhibition, to be held
here from September 21 to October
7, is an exhibit that will be illustrative of mining and smelting operations, arrangements for which have
been made with the Hall Mines and
Smelting eompany of Nelson.

The Root of Neuralgic Headache
Is an irritable condition of the
•nerves caused by cold. Relief comes
quickly from Nerviline, the great pain
reliever of today. "I consider Nerviline a magical .remedy for neuralgia,"
writes Mrs. E. G. Harris, of Baltimore. "But I never worry if Nerviline
is in the house. A few applications
never yet failed to kill the pain. I can
always recommend Nerviline for stiffness, rhenmatiun and muscular pains."
In use nearly fifty years; try Nerviline
yourself.    H. E. Woodland, druggist.

Water In Yonr Blood?
Lots of people have thin, watery
blood—they eat plenty but don't
digest. When digestion is poor, food
isn't converted into nourishment—in
consequence the body rapidly loses
strength. To positively renew health,
nothing equals Ferrozone. It excites
sharp ajpstite—makes the stomach
digest, forms life sustaining blood.
Abundant strength is sure to follow.
If you need more vitality, extra energy, better nerves, then use Forro-
zone, the medical triumph of the age.
Fifty cents buys a box of fifty chocolate coated Ferrozone tob'ets. H. E.
Woodland, druggist.
