The City Council
Salary   By-law Was Finally" Passed
Last Night.
shall not vote; mid if nny member
present persists in refusing to votei
for other than the reasons hereinbefore stated, he shull be recorded ns
voting in the negative on the question before the council.
A   Great   Tunnel
Three Aldermen and the Mayer Voted to Give Themselves
Salaries—A Road Tax By-law Was
Introduced.
The regular meeting of the city
council was held in the council
chamber last night. Those present
were Mayor Burrell, Aid. McLellan,
Martin, McCallum, Peterson, Gaw
and Feeney.
The minutes of the previous meeting were read, lint hefore they were
adopted quite n discussion took
place, ns Aid. Martin took objection
to them on the ground that Aid. McCullum did not vote on the amendment to the salary by-law at thc last
meeting. After discussing the matter, pro and eon, the minutes were
approved. Aid. Martin alone voting
against them.
The following hills were ordered
paid:
W. K. C. Manly 8 6.45
Enhadian Gen. ElectricCo  13.80
Hunter-Kendrick Co     3.36
II. E. Griffin  10.50
11. E. Woodland  10.95
.1. S. Simpson     3.15
Vernon & Nelson Tel. Co     9.00
Geo. Chappie      4.50
Granby Co  30.00
Aid. MoXellan reported the result
of hn interview with W. Dinsmore
regarding the latter's claim against
the city for damages. After discussing the report it was referred back
to the committee. No responsibility
is alcnowledgcd by the eity in connection with this claim.
Thc chairman of the health and
relief committee reported that Mrs.
Carter wns being properly looked
after, and anything she was in need
of was suppliee her.
A road tax amendment by-law
was introduced, which was advanced
to the stage of its third rending.
This by-law provides for the payment of a road tax of 82 by every
person who is not a taxpayer before
ho will bo entitled to vote at municipal elections. A property owiier, to
quality as,a voter, must be assessed!
for nt least 8100, otherwise he will
have to pay the 82 road tax before
g. tting his name on the voters' list.
A charge of 81.50 for ninkingn rc-
conncction of water or light was established. Tnis charge applies only
to cases where the water and light
has been cut olf, and a reconncction
is asked for.
The salary by-law wns then taken
up. It wns moved by Aid. Gaw,
seconded by Aid. Feeney, that the
by-law be finally passed. This
brought Aid. McLollan to his feet.
lie snid ho hnd all along tnken the
stnnd that the aldermen should not
receive any pay for their services,
and that when he introduced a bylaw providing for the remuneration
of the mayor he did not think is was
fair or just to him, nfter advancing it
to the stage of the committee of the
'whole, to insert n eluse authorizing
the payment of 8.'l apiece to the al
dermen for each meeting attended,
He stated thnt it whs unconstitutional nnd illegal. If Aldermen
Gaw and Feeney wished to remunerate the aldermen, why did they
not take the same course as he hnd
taken regarding compensation for the
mayor, and introduce a by-law of
their own providing for salaries for
the aldermen. He called on them
to withdraw their amendments nnd
introduce a now by-luw, hut thev
refused to do  so.
Hefore the vote wns tnken on
the final passage of the bylaw, Aid. McCallum arose to explain his position, nnd said thnt'he'
wns strictly opposed to giving a
salary to any member of the council, and had always been so, but declined to vote on the question because he hud been denounced ns an
obstructionist for taking such an active part in opposing a similar bylaw on a previous occasion, and in
tbis case his vote would not change
the result, ns silence would count as
a vote in the negative. Besides, if
the proeecduro by-law is good, he
did not think he bad any legal right
to vote on a by-law to give himself a
salary, and he didn't intend to vote
on or argue the question nny further,
us he hud already expressed himself
very clearly.
The mayor stated that he was willing to take the responsibility of tbe
passage of the salary by-law, providing for thc remuneration of himself
nml the aldermen, before the ratepayers nt nny time.
None of the aldermen voting for
the by-law hud anything to say, nnd
before the mayor culled for a vote
Aid. McLellan called on I.. I'. Eckstein, acting city solicitor, to give
his opinion us to the validity of  the
by-law. Mr. Eckstein's Btatcmonl
was to the effect thnt, in his opinion, thc manlier in which the bylaw hnd been altered, and new
clauses inserted nnd voted on by the
aldermen who were to receive personal pecuniary profit, was
illegal. The mayor then called
for a vote, which resulted us follows:
For the by-law, the mayor, Aid.
Gaw, Feeney und Peterson; against.
Aid. McLellan nnd Martin, Aid. McCallum not voting. The by-law was
declared carried.
Section 17 in thc Procecdure Bylaw rends: Every member who
shall be present in the councilehniu-
bcr when a question is put shall vole
thereon, unless the council shall excuse him, or unless he hi' personally
interested in the question, provided
such interest is resolvable into apcr-
Bonnl pecuniory profit, or such ns is

MINING NOTES
It is a ease of from hand to mouth
with the coke supply at the Granby
smelter again. It seems impossible
to keep a sufficient quantity abend,
and if n serious accident were to
occur to block the C. P. It. for a
week, the smelter would he compelled to close. Apparently the only
way to overcome the difficulty is to
allow the Great Northern to get into
the smelter and give it a chance to
haul a portion of the coke.
The Burns hoys, who nre working
on the May Queen, huve a tunnel
run in a distance of forty feet. They
huve encountered some good stringers of ore. They will continue work
on the properly all winter.
Thc Betts and Hesperus group, on
Hardy mountain, is exceeding expectations in good ore showings. At
n depth of sixty feet, the shaft is in
solid ore, carrying good values.
That this property will prove to be a
mine there is but little doubt from
the present outlook. Adjoining
properties nre being sought utter,
and good prices are offered for claims
in that vicinity. Indications of a
mining boom in thi1 spring are growing stronger every duy.
The Victor nnd Thirty-seven
claims, in Summit camp, have been
bonded by the Granby Consolidated
from J. Bi Henderson, of this city,
for $20,000. The group adjoins the
Senator elnim, which the same company recently bonded from l hns
Tobiasscn. Both claims have a big
surface showing of iron ore, which
the Granby company will use ns a
llux at tho smeller. Mr. Henderson
located the claims in 1895. They
nre of full size and have a lend 150
feet wide.

D. M. Mc\ icar is building a short
tramway between the E. P. U. and
Gdld Finch properties, both of which
he is working, lo shorten the wagon
haul ill getting out the high grade
ore common to both mines. When
completed it will reduce the cost of
transportation considerably,    Both
•properties   nre   said   to be looking
well.

The Granby Company" Applies to the Legislature for Increased Powers—Mining Notes From Surrounding Camps.
In the last, number of thc Hritish
Columbia G*zette appears a notice
which snys, in part: "Notice is
hereby given to the legislative assembly of the province of British Columbia, nt the present session thereof,
by the Granby Consolidated Mining,
Smelting & Power company, limited,
tor an net to amend the snid company's special act of incorporation,
being chapter 75of the nets of the
said legislative assembly, 1901, so
as to empower the said company to
drive or construct a tunnel or tunnels under, through or in the mountains on which thc mines of thc said
company, nt I'bocnix, in the Greenwood mining division of Yale district, are located. The portal or
portals of said tunnel or tunnels to
be at some point or points on thc
side or base of said mountain, to be
selected by suid company, from
which point or points the said tunnel or tunnels may be driven or constructed through nny crown lands,
ornny occupied or unoccupied lands,
pre-emptions 'or mineral claims of
any person or persons, company or
companies situate on or in said
mountain, to and into the mines or
mineral claims of said company."
The Granby company's scheme,
which tbey are asking the government power to curry out, is a common sense one, ambitious as it limy
appear. From Phoenix down to
Greenwood, a distance of less than
four miles as the crow Hies, there is
a sheer drop of nearly 4900. The
proposition is simply to go as low
down tbis bill as practicable, and
drive n railway tunnel into the heart
ofthe mountain until it tups the ore
body which they arc working now
at thc summit of the range. Then
glory holes would he  made   to   ihe
surface and the ore mined in the
Knob Hill and Old Ironsides
dropped down to thc tunnel. It is
agreai big ambitious scheme, and it
presents its problems, but it is thc
logical und natural system, and there
arc no insuperable difficulties or engineering impossibilities. When it
is carried through it will be thc
greatest mining accomplishment in
the world.
* *   *
The largest number of men ever
nt work in Phoenix cninpat any one
time are now employed nt the Granby mines. Over 400 men nre now
i on the payroll.
■ ¥      &      %
j Ore is being hauled from the Senator claim, in Summit camp, to the
railway, for shipment to the Granby
■inciter.
* *   *
It is expected thnt nt the Dccem-
j her meeting of the board of directors
of the Providence mine a third dividend will be declared, nnd it is not
at all unlikely that after the 1st of
January this sort of thing will take
(place monthly with great regularity.
The providence enjoys the reputation of having been the first mine in
thc Boundary to declare dividens,
and its success has encouraged a
number of others lo work high
grade claims, notably the Elkhorn,
E. P. I'. and Gold Einch, all of
which are most promising, to say
nothing of several others in the high
grads belt, on wnich work is being
prosecuted.
* *   *
Operations at the  Cariboo, Camp
McKinney, have been temporarily
discontinued, and in the meantime
it   is   probable   thnt   the plant for
treating the ore will be added to.

Horace P. Pembovton, business
manager of the Boundary Fa'ls

The salary by-law is the chief topic
of con versa tion  on the streets today,
That the mayor and  aldermen  would
vote  themselves   salaries duuing the
closing hours of their term did not occur to the ratepayers foi1  ti   moment.
But   the     proceedings    last   night
r.>moves all doubt as to the attitude of
the   majority   of the council on this
question. If the by-law passed is legal,
and there are many who doubt this, the
public   treasury   will   have  pay out
about $1000 in salaries to the  mayor
and aldermen.    The mayor gets $300
and the aldermen S3 each for every
meeting attended.    As we have stated
before, the majority of the  ratepayers
are in favor of granting Ut the   mayor
Home remuneration for his loss of time,
hut they object to  paying the   aldermen.    It is not so very long ago since
a salary by-law came up in   the council whicn caused considerable unpleasantness.   Jt was thrown out, and Aid.
Cusson, who was then a  member   of
the   council,   resigned  his seat on account of its failure to become  a  law,
The injustice of the present by-law in,
that while the   aldermen  serving   on
the different, committees now will ho
paid,    those    who    were    in     the
council   prior   and   up  the time the
other by-law came up, will not receive
a cent.    If the present aldermen  are
entitled   to   a salary,  so also are ex-
Aid. Cusson, Manly and Trotter. But,
after all, the question is mainly one of
finances.    If the city treasury were in
a flourishing and prosperous condition,
we do uot think for a moment any  of
the ratepayers would object to a fair
compensation being paid to the members of the council. But such is not the
case.    There is practically an  empty
treasury.    Within the past couple of
weeks a by-law has been   passed   providing for the sale of lands in   arrears
for taxes, which will certainly   work a
hardship on a large number of   property holders, but as the city is in need
of funis, something had to  be  done.
And yet in the face of this, three   aldermen and the   mayor voted  nearly
81000   out   of a   depleted treasury.
Aid. McLellan, Martin and McCallum
are to be commended   for   the   stand
they took- standing by their colors to
the last.    Let thi' aldermen who value
their services so highly consider   the
lot of the school  trustees.    These  officials are nut paid for fchelr time, yet
they   render   as  much   service to tho
city, year after year, as do the   aldermen, and never ask for remuneration,
Mr. I, A, Dinsmore has served as   a
school trustee for seven years, and   it
is doubtful if lie has received zs much
as a vote of thanks.

A Strange t'ension Case.
DTAJtTJNQ %riM in 4efct tthlrtj
yeara ajfOj nnd depending for a
livelihood wholly on * pension
of $50 a month from the gpvern-
ment, ihe act" te of Henry Wens-
lor ot Sp'keri Waliush County, Ind.,
■low amcunta to mora than $25,000, ttnd
iu crowing at a rapid rate. What is
8i.ll more rurloua, the government)
having p id Weneler this pension for o
•yenerauon, will, at his death, receive
buck the $50 a month, and $8,000 In addition. Suoh a »tate of affairs has
nover before come within the ken ot
the bureau ofllclals, as reported by
Special Agent Stephens. The story ol
WonsUr and his accumulated wealth
Ih un Interesting one, and la thu:-. related by the Wabash correspondent of
the Indianapolis "News:"
"During the war he enlisted from
Wabash County, In the Eighty-Ninth
Indiana Infantry. While on the march
In the South he suffered from prostration by the heat, which (Mined mental
derangement, and though he has not at
any time been violent, he has been, to
an extent, incapable of managing his
affairs. For twelve yeara after hla
affliction Weftsler was confined In the
hospital for the Insane at Indianapolis,
and was discharged a^ being harmless
nnd requiring no attention. Application was made for a pension on account
of his mental condition, and the caae
was pending some time. In 18C7 his
wife was divorced, and he was left
comparatively   friendless.
"At that time his condition was such
that Jonathan Talm-'gre, a local banker, was appointed guardian, and Mr.
Talmage's report to the circuit court
In September, 1870, showed that^Wens-
ier had overdrawn his account with
hjs guardian $11.37. In the next report
Mr. Talmage showed that the pension
of $50 a month, with a considerable
amount as arrearages, had been paid,
and as Wensler had been supported by
the State while at the hospital, the arrearages amounted to a tidy sum.
"In this way the foundation of the
present fortune was laid. Four years
ago Mr. Talmage died, and Thomas F.
Payne, a wealthy land-owner of Wabash, was appointed guaidlan. The
Pension Bureau required., about thnt
time, that all reports of guardians ol
wards receiving pensions should bc
made to Washington. In his report ol
May 1, 1900, Mr. Puyne set forth that
the amount of fuiirts Belonging t<
Wensler in his hand* was $25,4»0, anr
that the total cost ol ndmlnl. Lerlng the
guardianship was Jli214. With a few
excep lon^. tne fun'du were loaned oi:
gilt-edged sect'.tity, at ten per cent. Interest, and later at eig.it per cent
Some of the later loa.is have been made
at six per cent. This interest was
compounded, and the total mounted
higher and higher. Wensler was active, and cont.lbuted to his own sustenance. Fur yeara he piled his voca
tion aa a huckster, a:.Q diove aboui
the county with his UUle wagon, on
which were printed In sprawling let
ters the words: 'H. We; sler, Hugater,'
"Recently he went Into business in
a Fmall way at Splker'a Station, fou:
miles from Wabash. Ho lives alone
and his expenses for food and clothing
are almost nothing. Ills guaidlan pays
$8.50 a week for his food, and Wenslei
takes $25 a month for other expenses
The rest of the $50 pension, and tbe
handsome Increment from the $25,000
at Interest, Is re-lnve^tcd as it comes
in.
"The reports of the guardian to the
Pension Bureau, nv lug this remarkable exhibit, IndU' ed Commissioner
Evans to send Special Agent Stephens
to Wabash to look Into the case, and
he uncovered the fa< ta as stated. The
special agent aays that as Wensler has
no friends, tho money at his death will
revert to the government. Wensler Is
perhaps sixty-five yer>i.s old, nnd never
speaks unless ad dies: ed. He Is expert
In handling horses, nnd on several occasions bas been Injured in runaways,
but he dues not seem to know what
fear is. Probably no estate in the
country lias been so capably managed.
"It la said of Wen.-ler that a few
years ago he was seised with a desire
to manage hla property, and went to
the office of a wel.'-known Wnbash
lawyer to stnte his cose.   'See here, Mr.
 ,' said Wensler, '1 urn not Insane,
and I want my funds turned over to
me.'   The lawyer g d at him 1 'lently
for a moment, and th**n replied: 'You're
drawing a good pension, aren't youV
Wensler admitted he was, 'Well, then,'
drawled the lawyer, If you are not Insane your pension Will stop, for that's
why you nre getting it.' Wen le" lo"ked
wild, and as he shot nut of the door, he
cried: 'The devil; I'm crazier than hell.'
And after that he Was content to waive
all right to the management and f"n-
trol of hla estate."

THK rpldi'mlt? nt smallpox In London, England, has, it slvius.
given rise to a curious innovation. Invitations nre .-vni oul
for tea, on which it is stmed
ihere will be—not dancing, hut vao-
Mnatlun. The stei r.er Bex Is repre-
sented by a doctor; tea Is served at
four o'clock, and at live vaccination
begins. Whether this be true or not,
they went one better In France a teW
years ago. There was an outbreak of
■nnallpox 1n Pails, and a lender of
fashion was struck with the idea of
getting all her .friends vaccinated. She
issued Invitations to a bull, which
ended In a superb cotlMlon. She informed her guest* tnnt the latter would
contain an entirely new figure. It did.
The men had to submit fco vaccination
ou the arm; the women on the calf of
the leg. This Is how It was carried
out: After a "tour-de-vuli-e," each nun
brought hts partner to the doctor. Sim
grace?utly raised her skirt; there was
a little cry on the part of the patient,
another "tour-de-valso," and .she was
rc-conduacd to her place. The men
had to take off their coats and display
a coiner of their bleeps. From thi.-* It
will be deen that England has not the
monopoly of e«wntrlc Id.ias.

Curious Hits of News.
A French savant who lately returned
from Egypt, blinking a royal mummy
with him. hnd a somewhat curious ox>
perlenre at Marseilles. On the case
being opened at ihe custom house there
the officer on duty, huarlng that It contained a Pharaoh, looked up Pharaoh
In the tariff. But no mention could be
found of such an article. Then It occurred to him that a nice high duty
was'exacted on dried huh, and the savant was obliged to pay as If foi that
commodity.
Rural free delivery, according to the
report of the United States Postmaster-General, Is being rapidly extended
In that country. The number of routes
In operation Increased from 1,276 a*t the
beginning of the last fiscal year to
4,-JOl at Its close; and under the present
plans the number of routes by the first
of next July will b9 S.fiOO. By that date
the rural population receiving dMly
service will reach [.,700 01)0, and the delivery system will then cover more
than a quarter of the eligible portion or
the country.
A remarkable story Is going the
rounds of the Knglish papers with regard to General Sir Ian Kami!ton's
spectacles. It appears that General
Hamilton lost a pair of speotaclea in
the battle of Mnjuba Hill. They were
apparently picked up by a Boer whom
they^ suited, and who kept them for
twenty years. In the early part of the
present year the spectacles were found
on the body of a dead Boer. The case
had Genei al Hamilton's name on It,
and the glasses were In due course returned to their original owner.
"D, P. Coon, whose son was last
night married to Hiss Hattie Combs,
\s one of the best n- tured men In Fort
Scott," remarks the Fort Scott (Kan.)
•'Monitor." "After the ceremony he
kissed the bride und gave her $1,000, at
the same time remarking that It was
worth anot'ier hundred. The bride
then walked up and kissed him, and he
pulled out 5100 more und gave It to her.
The bridegroom thought this was a
good financial snap, and he tried the
same game. He kissed his father, but
onhy got $'0. However, the old gentleman went broke on this little series of
speculations."
A monument was recently unveiled
at Du dee, Scotland, in memory of
James Bowman Lindsay, who, Sir William Preece said, predicted In 1834 that
houses and towns would soon be lighted
and heated by electricity, and that
machinery would be driven by electricity Instead of by sfam. About 50
years ago Lindsay went to London ami
Illustrated by experiments a system of
wireless telegraphy, hut there was then
no practical call for such a system,
and It. was forgotten. "An Invention, to be of use," Sir William Preece
remarks, "must come at the proper
time"--a fact In which disappointed inventors may possibly find some comfort.
A Minnesota paper tells of a giant
buff cochin rooster, owned by a Mr.
Plumason of Luverne, Minnesota,
which has been trained to trot In harness, pulling a tiny cart, In which rides
the baby son of Its owner. Golden
Duke Is the name of this strangest of
fowls, nnd It Is a prize-winner In its
class, as well as a freak. The big bird
-vus broken to harness hy the boys of
the Plumason household, and now
seems to enjoy its work. It wears a
little harness and la guided by reins,
ivhtch It carries In its bill. It is the
master of several gaits, and at the
■void of command, given hy the small
•hild who Is driving, It will walk, run,
:rot, or come to a standstill,   At home

a mile or more without stopping.
Following (lovely on;;the recent announcement of the young women of the
Delta Gamma Club of Northwestern
Universityi   Chicago,   that   they   were
•pen to proposals of marriage, comes
the formation of a dub of celibates
among the young men of that institution. The Knights of the Marble Heart
Is the name of the new organization,
and, as the name indicates, the club
proposes to give the "marble heart" to
the young co-eds with matrimonial Inclinations, and to cultivate the joys of
Jolly bachelorhood. The new society of
knights Is composed of members of the
senior class, and their organisation waa
completed last week. The colors, sear-
let and black, were pinned on the thirteen charter members, and these will he
worn until the arrival of the society's
pins, which Will consist of small hearts

With no little difficulty he wns res-
