NELSON,  BRITISH   COLUMBIA,   SATURDAY,   MAY 6, 1893.  $_ A YEAR  WILL SOMEBODY OATOH HIM ?  WE HAVE A MILD-MANNERED TENDERFOOT  "ON THE WING-."._._____  i^ow boosting in Kaslo to Await tlie Reaping of the  lEnndrcd and One Different Plants Which the  fitaiiw&y and I/and Companies are Going to Sow  for Mis Particular Picking.  Kaslo, May 5t h, 1803.  Editor The Mt?ier\'  When you first took ������ne by the hand, a mild  pilgrim from the played out centers of civilization, and offered to so guide my faltering footsteps, that I might soon pass in a crowd for a  genuine wild-eyed western wonder, it was then  I promised to give you from time to time some  idea of the progress I had made.  Until now the rush of getting in on the  ground floor has prevented me from keeping  my promise. Having figured out my profits for  the next year, and having nothing to do but to  wait for them, I naturally have an occasional  fragment of time which  of course is yours.  When I left you wiping away a tear, on the  dock at  Nelson I tried to keep in mind some of  your ".Instructions to Pilgrims," but in some  way I fear I did not entirely succeed. The  stern look which you advised me to assume fled  before the wonderful adventures, as related by  themselves, of nearly everyone whom I asked  about the country.  The first thing that impressed me was the  fact that nearly everyone on board .were foreigners, though at times they used a few  sentences of English quite fluently. I tried to  catch some of the words in order to ask you  about the nationality of these people. I can  only remember now some like ������������������'* stoppirigup th'  crosscut," " t'croppings trios' galena."driving-  inonher furpaydirt," etc. One man told his  friend quite seriously that his big boy went upwards of 325, 'and-was mad when I asked him if  it was years or pounds, -  When we got to Kaslo all the people in the  town, with a few extra ones, came down to  shake hands and make us feel at home. They  formed a long double line and made us walk up  between them. This gives everyone a chance  to recognize long-lost brothers and legal gentlemen, also to'spot capitalists like myself.  I went up the street until I saw a building  that looked like the hotel which you told me I  should find. A sign "Ledgers cost money-  pay before you register" hung over the desk. I  paid. Yes, I could have a room, certainly. And  soon I turned in, glad to get a rest. This was  at 2 a.m. At 3 o'clock a man came.in and told  me to " shover over," as he " had an interest in  this claim." Well, he was soon asleep and I  was almost so when another one came in and  said, " Boys, I can't sleep on the floor���������crowd  up." We crowded. Now this was ail right, but  when another rr.au opened the door and looked  in with Ihe usual, " Say boys���������" we arose as  one man and chased him out.  Well, next day I changed hotel, and am now  the proud possessor of a bed all my own. When  the next steamer whistled I joined the crowd  and lined up to watch the passengers get off.  The first man ashore was a wild-eyed vision of  anxiety who rushed up the lines with an air of  impending tragedyjvvhich made me follow him,  fearing that he contemplated some rash act. A  real estate sign caught his eye. He rushed in.  " Where is a map P" he demanded.  "There, sir," was the reply, and the crowd  held their combined breath���������was he about to  buy an entire block ?  \  " And where is block 4-11-44 QX ?" he asked.  " There it. is," indicating some, lines on the  edge of the map.  "And where are we now ?"  " There."  He took in the space between the two���������  clutched wildly at his hair, said " My God !"  and fainted.  I am still unable to think of any reasonable  cause for his agitation.  Well, I am still looking around, and if I see  anything new I will let you know. In , the  meantime will you kindly tell me a few things.  What is a " proposition " ? a." true fissure " a  " cropping " and what is " trail." and do you  open one the same as a jackpot ? By answering  which you will oblige    '  -       A Flat Miner.  LEMON'S LITTLE LEQAL PILL  WHICH HE HAS SECURED POR THE BENEFIT  OF THE KASLO TRADE MANAG-ERS   '  If  tlte   H_as!o   People   Don't  Hurry  on (hat   Legal  IWacEaincry They Btefe'rred. to So 91uch They Will  -Find Tliessfiselves Out  in the   Cold,  Cold World  Again, ESeforc They Know it.  When President Lemon said that the meeting  at which the Kaslo delegation were admitted  en bloc to membership was illegal he meant  just what he said.  Since that .meeting he has secured legal opinion as to the legality of the proceedings and'the  result of this seems to disclose the fact that  those forty members who were taken in on  Wednesday morning early were not legally  admitted to membership at all.,. c  The legal opinion is appended, and it will  furnish interesting subject matter for the Board  of Trade meeting on Wednesday afternoon.  R. E. Lei?ion, Esq., President of South Kootenay Boa?-d  of Trade,   Nelson.  Dear Sir,���������In  answer  to your request for my  opinion as to the legality of the special general  meeting of your board,   called for 9 o'clock p.m.  of the 2nd instant,   and  subsequently  held, I  have to say that by subsection 3 of section four,  of the   Board's   by-laws,   it   is provided that  " Special general meetings of the Board may be  " called by the President or five members of the  " Oouncil,   either  by  notice inserted in one or  " more newspapers, or by circular letter signed  ���������'��������� by the secretary and posted one day previous  " to said meeting."  The facts in the present case are as follows :  A circular letter,   signed  by. the   secretary  without the authority of either the President or  Oouncil was delivered to the members the afternoon of May 2,   calling the meeting at 9 o'clock  the same evening.    This notice was clearly bad.  At the hour appointed no quorum   (which by  sub-section 4  of the same by-law is fixed at ten  members)was present, consequently there could  be  no  meeting  wTithin the. meaning of  the bylaw,  nor  section  fifteen  of  the statute, under  which your board is constituted.  At twelve o'clock midnight eleven members  had assembled in an informal manner, and  twenty-eight new members were attempted to  be elected en bloc without a ballot. This also  was clearly irregular, contrary to sub-section 2  of by-law  number three, and in face of the rul  ing of the* chairman that the proceedings were  illegal, from which there was apparently no~  appeal.  What occurred subsequently is of no consequence as under the above state of facts there  was no legal meeting, and what was attempted  could not be done. Yours  truly,  John Elliot.  THE HOSPITAL SCHEME GOES  ARCHITECT TAYLOR WILL PREPARE PLANS  AT ONCE AND SUBMIT THEM.  While   tlie   Kcw Ruilding is Dcing Made Ready the  .Directors   Have Decided to   Open a Provisional  Hospital and JMahe the Necessary Application for  That *j$1,tt������0 Appropriation.  There were not so many present at the meeting of the hospital subscribers yesterday afternoon as there would have been had it been a  Board of Trade meeting.  Among those present, were J. Fred. Hume,  W. F. Teetzel, Thomas Madden, John Houston,  Dr. LaBau, George N. Taylog* and Dr. Arthur.  The result of the canvas for subscriptions was  pronounced most satisfactory, nearly $2,000  having been subscribed. The following names  have been added to the public hospital lists  since the last issue of The Miner :  D. LaBau  $100  Harold Selous  -toe  Bank of Montreal  25  Bankbf B. C.  25  E.E.

The meeting unanimously decided to have the  institution conducted by a public board, arid'  George N. Taylor was authorized to prepare  plans and specifications for agSiiitable building ���������  and submit the same to t^���������^������arcl of first dr  provisional directors witJjffpBHKv to having'  things so shaped that tnewrieAv directors may  call for tenders as soon as they are elected. ;  ���������On  his  own   account  Mr.  Taylor   has  been j  working on plans and has succeeded in pleasing ���������  the  directors to such an extent that there  will  be but few changes to make on the plans as at:  present prepared.     These call for a  two-storey,  building with two  wings of one storey.    The.  main   building will  include  on the first floor a  convenient lobby, a hall, dining room, operating  room, kitchen, pantries'and nurses'rooms, and.  on the second floor five private wards' with the  necessary conveniences. r  It is proposed to call for tenders in three  wrays, for the building complete, for the main  building only, and for the main building with  one wing.  The directors have decided to openvi hospital  at  once,   renting a building until sue������ time as,  the new one can be made ready for use, n(akin  ~  application for  the j$l,0()0 appropriation voted  by the Legislature last year.  According to the provisions of their articles  of incorporation the first Wrectors have called a  meeting of contributors ^o^May 20, to secure  the election of permanent directors, which  notice will be seen elsewhere.  Any wishing to help along the hospital by  one or two day's work in the way of clearing or  excavating may apply to Thomas 'Ward on  Saturday and Monday, Workmen furnishing  their own tools.  ../'  ��������������������������� *fi  A\  &  Hi  *H*!w  ������l'-lHLUI_IIIMWM.Ul������MII*Wa<MI  u_*__wiMMMiMaaM_wrr._^^ THE  MINER:  NELSON.  B.   C:,  SATURDAY,   MAY 6,  1893.  KASLO    MAKES   HEE   MOVE  SWOOPS DOWN IN THE NIGHT AND TRIES TO  STEAL THE BOARD OP TRADE  Nelson's Rights Protected hy a Surprised Minority,  Who Oppose the Projected Midnight Theft and  Defeat the- Proposition���������The E_aslo Delegation  Will Try Again.  From Wednesday evening's extra.  There are a great many, people in Nelson this  morning who never intended that they should  partake of Nelson's hospitality on the morning  of May 3.  But how they happened to be here and why  they carne here brings out a great many different stories. They are nearly all business men  or if not they have or should have some other  qualification to become members of the South  Kootenay Board of Trade. And loving the  business men of Nelson in much the same spirit  as Jonathan loved David in the days of old they  came down with the avowed purpose of cashing  in $10 each and becoming members of the South  Kootenay Board of Trade. -  <���������  When the charter members of this Board of  Trade���������Nelson men by the way���������held their first  annual meeting some weeks ago they anticipated this kindly feeling on the part of their  Kaslo brethren, and reciprocating it, elected a  slate which was to stand only until such time  as Kaslo people should have a chance of study-  ine out the by-laws and make up their minds  whether they would "jine " or not. The slate  drafted was :  R. E. Lemon, President.  J. Fred. Hume, Vice-President.  G. A. Bigelow, Secretary-Treasurer.  A. H. Buchanan,  Charles Van Ness,  W. F. Teetzel-  G. V. Holt,  T. E. B. Turner,  G. C. Hunt,  F. J. Squires,  J. A. Gilker,  ^Members of Oouncil.  The meeting was then adjourned to meet  when the KasJ.o people made up their minds, the  officers, it being understood, would resign at  such meeting. ;;���������  Word was passed along that Wednesday  afternoon at 2.30 would be a convenient time  for such meeting, and the charter members  were so notified. This was changed, however,  and the meeting was called for Tuesday evening  at nine o'clock.  The Kaslo delegation, to the number of about  fifty, boarded the Nelson last evening, and  trusting in Captain McMorris and Providence,  hoped to reach this city in time to have a meeting. They backed a losing game, however,  since the steamboat Nelson did not arrive till  after eleven o'clock. Late as it was a committee  was appointed to ascertain if the Nelson mem-  [bers would get a quorum together and accept  the applications en bloc.  Now    business   in    Nelson   has   up   to   date  admitted  of its  transaction  within reasonable  hours, and the majority of Nelson's business  men had sought their slumbers and were dreaming of the increased volume of trade which the  construction of the Nelson and Fort Sheppard  railway would bring them.  However, with some difficulty a quorum was  gotten together.      President R. E. Lemon took  the chair in the Phair, and Geo. A. Bigelow was  at his post as secretary-treasurer, and around  them gathered a Spartan band composed of G.  V. Holt, A.H. Buchanan, Edward Applewhaite,  John Gibson, W. F. Teetzel, John Houston, J..  MacDonald, W. J. Wilson and T. E. B. Turner,  representing the Nelson district, while upwards  of forty Kaslo applicants for membership were  present.  The resignations of all officers and members  of the council were received, and with the exception of those of the president and secretary-  treasurer they were received and accepted. The  applicants from Kaslo were then presented en  bloc, and A. L. Davenport deposited a pot of  money containing nearly  $400 with George A.  Bigelow as their subscriptions.  Up  to   this  time   the   meeting  had gone on  smoothly enough, and the names of  John C Davenport, John L. Retallack, F. H.  Hopkins. J. C. Lendrum, John Sucksmith, P.D.  Williamson, Wirt. Goodwin, J. R. Marks, J. A.  Whittier, Matthew Guthrie, Thos. F. Cosgrife,  John A. Watson, John M.Burke, Wm.Carring-  toh, A. Byers, J. A. Macdonald, A. L. Davenport, R. F. Green, W. Baillie, W. J. Shelton,  Mark Musgrove, A. D. Wilson, A. W. Wright,  D. McPhail, N. C. Sullivan, J. H. Durfee, H.  Veit, H. Geigerich, C. A. Bishop, Marion  Anbury, D. P. Kane, S. J. Henderson, W. E.  Mann. J. W. Livers, Robert J. Beaiey and E. L.  Miins were subscribed to the by-laws and roll of  - membership.  At this point, however, the Kaslo members  came to the conclusion that they had not time  to proceed with the election of officers and W.  Baillie moved that the meeting be adjourned to  meet- again in two weeks at Kaslo for the election of officers.  And then the fur began to fly, and many jaws  were set " a running," the Kaslo people contending that they had the majority and could  do as they pleased, and the Nelson men arguing  that the Kaslo people would do no such thing.  When cries of " Question ! question !" were  raised President Lemon rose and refused to put  motion, ruling that it was out of order. He  based his ruling on the fact that it was the  annual general meeting, and as such must be  held in Nelson. In support of this he quoted  sub-section 1 of section iv of the by-laws, which  reads :  "The annual general meeting of the Board  shall   be held in Nelson on the firstc day  in  each year, except when that day may be  a legal holiday, in which case the meeting shall  take place on the following day, notice of which  shall be advertised once in some newspaper  publi " ed in the district."        '..-,,  In support of his motion Mr. Baillie contended  that as the clause was contrary to the sense of  the majority of the members it was not in harmony with the statutes, and was therefore  illegal.  After this a long wrangle followed, in which  the Nelson party were compelled to talk against  odds of four and five to one, and in this way the  dead-lock continued  until four  o'clock  in   the  up  in   dis-  morning,  order.  As  when the meeting broke  THE KASLO VERSION.  Understood   hy   the   Majority   of   the   Members  front   the Lake District.  ���������* If the charter members of the South Kootenay Board of Trade had carried out their  implied intention this difficulty would never  have happened," explained John L. Retallack to  the Miner reporter.  " A deputation of Kaslo people, consisting of  J. M. Burke, R. F. Green and W. Baillie waited  on the Nelson people somes time ago, but the  officers appointed were all Nelson men, although  to secure the charter it was found necessary to  take in the lake population in order to secure  the necessary 2,500.^  " The  proposition   then   made was that such  men  as  were  qualified  should join the Board,  that  all   officers  should  resign,   and   that the  entire election should be proceeded with afresh.  We  came   here,   having   arranged   that  there  should  be  a meeting, but found that there was  hardly enough * members . to constitute a meeting and certainly not a representative meeting.  We held a caucus at the Phair and sent Messrs.  Green and Baillie  as  a deputation to ascertain  what the Nelson members were prepared to do.  " All  they were prepared to do was to admit  as  charter  members such persons as had come  down  who   were   eligible,  and  to   accept   the  resignation  of the vice-president and   one-half  the  council  and  allow us to name their substitutes.    This   was  at  variance  with  their  first  implied intention   and  caused much discussion.  A motion to adjourn the meeting was ruled out  of order by the chairman, but was over-ruled by  the   meeting.     At  four  o'clock in the morning,  the meeting broke up in a dead-lock.  " If the Nelson people want to overcome the  present difficulty all that they need to do is to  adhere to the original proposition and allow the  full meeting to have an opportunity of electing  for the Board's officers men who can be considered representatives of the District of South  Kootenay."  THE   AFTERNOON'S   DOINGS.  Kasio's   Unsiness   Men   Hold   Another Caucus   and  Seek a Solution.  - This afternoon, after the Kaslo delegation had  been refresh^ti<^with a sound sleep they held  another caucus' in the Hotel Phair, which was  fully attended, and after considering the question for more than an hour and a half they  appointed a committee, consisting of Messrs.  Geigerich, Hopkins and J. C. Davenport to  carry a flag of truce to a committee from the  charter" members with a view to securing a  solution of the difficulties.  This committee went into session with a  deputation from the charter members late in  the afternoon.  The committee representing the charter members was composed of Messrs. Bigelow, Holt,  Applewdiaite, Teetzel and Hume.  When the two committees got together it  was evident that the Kaslo people had not  changed their minds. They asked, in fact, that  the claims made by them at the previous .meeting be granted.  The Nelson people had eased up a bit, however, but they did not quite know what the  Kaslo people had in store for them if they got  the meeting at Kaslo.  E. Applewhaite intimated that he thought  the people of Kaslo had a perfect right to have  the meeting at Kaslo if they would consent to  have it called for the election of officers alone  but he would oppose any attempt at having a  meeting called in Kaslo to transact unfinished  business which had been begun in Nelson.  No arrangement was reached when the two  committees separated. The Kaslo people are  talking of reconstructing the entire board and  this is not re-assuring to the people of Nelson.  G. A. Keefer, C.E., and H. B. Smith, P.L.S.,  who have charge of the work of reclamation on  the Kootenay marshes at the boundary line,  left for Bonner's Ferry this week with an additional staff of surveyors and workmen.  ^������ -T IT  f->  ������>Jk h_ ��������������� *  k- i*r_y;  ./  mv  5_r> vi1'.:  ^y/5_\V^  IT   II" "l."

They counted up noses���������full forty they see ;  Enough to snow under a small twenty-three.  In the strength of their numbers they snorted in scorn :  " We'll make these jays wish they had never been born ;  " We'll razzle 'em, dazzle 'em by numbers and wealth,  " For none of ' us people' are here for our health."  At midnight they met, drawn in battle array ;  They fought and they wrestled till breaking of day.  Their chieftains, in anger, fell back one by one,  And the cry rose as ever, " Come on with your fun."  The steamer's shrill whistle was tooted in vain ;  They said, " We'll stay with it, and try it again.  " They are weary of scrapping ; they'll give up the fight ;  " We'll meet them and beat them quite easy to-night."  They spouted and voted ; they toiled to a man :  They tried all the wrinkles of someone's bright plan.  But when Victory seemed surest it caused no concern,  For quickly was carried a move to adjourn.  Their leaders stood stricken ; their hash traps spread wide  Aghast at both numbers and money defied ;  And still they are wailing aloud in their grief,  While Nelson breathes deeply a sigh of relief.  CONTEMPORANEOUS  HISTORY.  Is is to be regretted that the present split has  taken place between the business men of the  cities of Nelson and Kaslo. But in this connection it might be well for the people of Kaslo to  understand, once and for all, that the business  men of Nelson have been heie too long to be  bulldozed or tricked by any stratagem. If by  their utterance outside meetings, and by their  proceedings while such meetings are in progress, Kaslo people convey the idea that they  mean to run the South Kootenay Board, of  Trade in the interests of Kaslo they need not  expect much toleration from the Nelson members.'  ���������-.*���������*..  *  The failure which has attended the efforts of  consolidating the business interests of Nelson  and Kaslb teaches one lesson, and that is that  such a consolidation could never be achieved  successfully. The passing of the Kaslo muster  of forty into the membership of the Board en  bloc was a mistake, but it has given the people  of Kaslo an opportunity of showing their hand,  and they have done so. It has also awakened  the business men  of Nelson.  * ���������  The people of Kaslo affirm that Kaslo should  have the controlling influence on the Board.  Their action in delaying their entrance into the  Board until they could muster sufficient  strength to carry the meeting in their favor  proves this, even had the tell-tale " Plan of  Campaign " remained undiscovered. They wish  to make a complete revision of the Board bylaws    and  elect    the   entire  slate   of   officers  anew. Their first move being to take exception  to the manner in which the secretary's duties  had been discharged, and it is said they desire  to have a paid secretary appointed at $100 per  month.  *  There may be reasons underlying all this. It  is an open secret that Kaslo realty is not any  higher than it was a few months ago, and that  an organized effort is being made to keep the  boom going for another few months. The  details of this plan are interpreted as including  the starting of a daily newspaper, which,  according to the promoters, will cost $1,000 per  month to operate, and which the business men  of Kaslo will be asked to run after subscribing  $8,000 for the purchase of a plant.  * *  It mav not be unreasonable to deduce that  the hand of William Baillie can be traced  through these plans. He is at present the ser-1  vant of one of the largest holders of, Kaslo  realty. He is a newspaper man, and rumor has  it that he has a newspaper plant for sale.  #  Consider what the effect would be on the outside world if the South Kootenay Board of  Trade was to be converted into a Kaslo concern.  If a daily newspaper could be run for a few  months, even at a loss of $500 per month, behind which scheme are men who have evinced  the liveliest kind of an interest in the pulling of  the South Kootenay Board of Trade to Kaslo.  Might not the secretary of the Board so constructed play the dual role of secretary and  editor, and would not any salary paid such  secretary partake somewhat of the nature of a  subscription to a Kaslo booming sheet.  * #  *  Would a Kaslo  revised  edition of the South  Kootenay Board of Trade  use its influence to  secure a port  of  entry at Nelson or at Kaslo ?  Would the fact that Nelson was guilty of such  an  unholy alliance aid her in a protest against  such a Board's requisition for a port of entry at  Kaslo or not?  .������������������*���������#���������  *..'- " .". ��������� ��������� ���������  The Miner believes that there is room enough  for both Nelson  and Kaslo in  the district of  West Kootenay.     It regrets  exceedingly that  such a split has occurred, but it will not remain  silent when  those  interested in Kaslo seek  to  use Nelson's interest against herself to give  Kaslo a more creditable appearance with the  outside world. A town may have too much of  a good thing, and promising towns have been  injured before to-day by over booming.  00Y   ON   KIDS.

BOUCHIER'S   EOMANCE  ENDS  HE  IS  GATHEEED  IN AT LAST BY A PAIE  OP ENTEEPEISING BOBBIES  Tlie Girl Who Eloped WItli Mini froiii Victoria Was  Acting- as His S_������y, and by 'Tracking Mer tlie  Officers Came Upon tlie Unhappy Francis Hiding  in tlie Bmslies.  Francis  Bouchier,  who less  than a year ago  was one of the dashing leaders of the crenae de  la creme society of Victoria, occupied a cell in  the   provincial     jail     at   New    "Westminster.  Bouchier was a handsome, dashing young Englishman   with   a   handsome   young wife,   and  when .he arrived at Victoria several years ago  society   took him   right   into   his   arms.      He  established the   real   estate fir in  of Bouchier,  Croft & Mallette  and did a rushing business.  Spending money, however, faster than he made  it,  he soon  became pressed,  and it is alleged,  misappropriated funds  entrusted to him  in a  business way.     It  is also said that he sold property that did not belong to him, and the total  amount of his  shortcomings  is  large.    While  flying she highest he had become desperately in  love with a young lady named Miss Genu, who  was  employed as  a teacher in   a   fashionable  ladies' colleg'e,  and,  it is said, seduced her...  In  June   last    the   couple   eloped,   leaving  Mrs.  Bouchier in Victoria an provided for.  Bouchier and Miss Gf-enn took the train for  Montreal. Miss Genu was taken ill on the train  and had to stop off at Calgary, where it was  found she had smallpox. She was confined to  the smallpox hospital there and Bouchier pro  ceeded, to Winnipeg, from where he wired her  o join him in New York oh her recovery. This  she did, and the couple, after being heard from  once or twice, disappeared from view for a  time.  Not long ago Bouchier turned up in San  Francisco, still accompanied by Miss Genn, and.  last week the latter was seen in Victoria by  parties interested in Bouchier's arrest. Her  presence quickly aroused the suspicion that  Bouchier could not be very far off, and orders  were sent out from provinciol police headquarters to keep a sharp lookout for the much-  wanted man.  In the meantime Miss Genn's movements  were shadowed, and from her actions it became  evident that the pair contemplated taking,the  steamship Empress of Japan for China, so the  vessel wasfsearched at Victoria, but Bouchier  was not on board.  The shadowing of Miss Genu still continued  and when she arrived in Westminster Governor  Moresby  was  not  long  in arriving at the conclusion  that Bouchier was not far off.    About  twelve o'clock  on   Wednesday morning Sergt.  Walker, of Victoria, accompanied by a provincial   constable,    came  over   from   Vancouver.  Miss  Genu had been in the capital to arrange  for a fresh supply, aud shortly after her arrival  in town, took the steamer for South Westminster,   and   unknown   to   the   unfortunate  but  faithful woman the officers were  passengers on  the same boat with her.  When she left the ferry she walked down the  Great Northern track, and a moment later held  up her umbrella as a signal that all was well.  In response to the signal Bouchier was seen  coming out of the bushes, where he had lain  hidden from an early hour in the morning. The  officers waited until he was close to Miss Genn,  and then, strolling over in their direction,  suddenly nabbed the man and placed him under  arrest.  Bouchier submitted without a word. The  party then came back to the city, and Bouchier,  having been without food since last night, was  given a meal at the Hotel Douglas. Miss Genn  walked by his side from the ferry landing to the  hotel, and afterwards accompanied him to the  Bouchier looks anything but the swell he was  .���������a short year ago. His clothes are shabby and  his whole appearance betokens worry.- Miss  Genn zelso appears careworn, and the beauty for  which she was noted at one time, is somewhat  faded. She is small and dark, has fine eyes and  a perfect figure.  Boucliier Out on ISail.  The case of Bouchier was called at the Police  Court in Victoria on Saturday. He was charged  with fraudulently obtaining $50 from J. G.  Cameron, of Victoria. When the case was  called, W. J. Taylor, who appeared for the  pro'secution, asked that the prisoner be remanded, neither side being ready to proceed.  A. h. Belyea, for the defence, consented to an  adjournment, but asked that in the meantime  his client be admitted to bail. The Magistrate  admitted tne prisoner to bail in $250, with two  sureties, who were immediately forthcoming.

If those people from Kaslo who were taken in  as members of the South Kootenay Board of  Trade en bloc on Wednesday morning had  planned to do a contemptible trick they could  not better have carried out such intentions  than by doing as they did last night in tendering a gratuitous insult to Harold Selous.  ' The tendency which some of the Kaslo people  have developed for illogical reasoning reached  the climax last evening at the adjourned meeting o������the Board.  For the past two weeks the people of Nelson  who interested themselves in the matter of  securing a Board of Trade, have been engaged  in studying the whims of some people from  Kaslo, and have undertaken the herculean task  of accommodating themselves to the convenience of the same set. -  There was, of course, as full a representation  of members as could be mustered,, and the  meeting had not - been allowed to proceed  through the preliminary stages before William  Baillie rose to a point of order, holding that the  meeting had not been legally convened, as the  1 meeting of Wednesday morning had broken  up without an adjournment.  He was informed from the minutes that the  meeting had been formally adjourned and that  the present session was the result of such  adjournment.  President    Lemon    incidentally   mentioned,  however, that he  agreed with Baillie regarding  the  validity of ������the  meeting,   but as a coupler  5v added that  the early morning seance of Wednesday  morning  was  a twin  brother  in   this  Ii respect with the present session.  " Then if the meetings have been illegal,"  retorted Baillie, "the charter members of the  Board have placed themselves in a very peculiar  position���������that of receiving money under false  pretences."  John M. Burke was quite orthodox from the  Kaslo text, arguing that the Wednesday morning meeting was quite legal, but that there  might be something of a flaw in. the present  meeting.  Now early in the evening the secretary had  been asked to call the roll, but when he proceeded to read the minutes of the morning  meeting it was found that the last name on the  minutes was that of E. L. Minis, while the roll  included several after that.  To. allay the fears of' the Kaslo people who  may have thought that a job was being put .up  on them, it was explained that the new names  on the list".were names of men who had appeared on the original list for charter* application,   but   as  only  the  necessary number had  been   appended  to   the final  application, they  had been received as  charter members and had  paid a proportion of their subscription.  The Kaslo people asked for something in the  way of minutes bearing on this, but Secretary  Bigelow informed them that the member who  had the minutes of that meeting was not out  this evening, and it would take a day to dig  him and the minutes out.  The minutes were finally passed, but not  without another" kick on the part. of Wm.  Baillie.  Harold Selous rose and asked the'secretary  why his name was not called, he having been one  of those who subscribed in the first instance.  This brought up the old difficulty about the  members who had subscribed their names since  the Wednesday morning meeting, but President  Lemon was not going to be upset by any little  technicality, and he declared that they were all  right.  The Kaslo delegation gave indications that  they were gathering steam for another kick,  but in this they were forestalled by Br'er  Houston, who expressed the opinion that if the  Kaslo people could, not allow business to proceed they could win the eternal regard of the  Board by staying at home.  Well, by and bye Bigelow moved the wheel a  -bit and  the  meeting reached  business arising  out of the minutes.      This  took in the question  of Harold Selous' membership,   and to simplify  matters   his  application   was  handed in to the  Board's  Council,   along  with  three pthers, the  list reading :  Harold Selous,  A. J. Marks,  Robt. A. Renwick,  Alf. W. Wood.  The Council retired to consider the applications and returning, reported favorably upon  all four. The Nelson contingent then endeavored to have the rules suspended and allow the  applications to be taken en bloc.  There was no one in the room who anticipated  that the forty men who were accommodated in  a similar manner at an early hour that same  morning would take exception to that practice.  But they did, and the meeting divided. Kaslo  had a narrow majority, as the voting force of  Nelson increased as the meeting progressed.  A suggestion followed the vote that the applications be laid over until the next session.  This was cut short by the appearance of a  large figure in the front, row. He rose and took  a bird'seye view of the people constituting the  meeting. He had" pinned his faith to "West  Kootenay when it was but little known, but  there were more than a score of strange faces  looking into his when he surveyed the meeting.  The man who had risen to address the meeting was no doubt positive that none of the  gentry who had voted nay on the question of  suspending the rules had accompanied him  when he .'tranaped' into this country only a few  years ago. They had not been associated with  him in the early pioneer days of West Kootenay, when he had swung his axe. They had  probably come across the line within the past  month, and might glide back again within a  week, but they had practically informed this  man that they would consider his application-  some more convenient time.  The speaker did not employ needless words,  but every word weighed a pound. " I rise to  thank you, gentlemen, for* the courtesy you  have shown me this evening." And Harold  Selous walked ont of the room.  A motion immediately followed from the  Nelson contingent that the Board do now  adjourn, and this was carried by a vote of 23 to  22, one or two of the newly-elected outside  members voting with Nelson to show their disapprobation of the policy pursued by the Kaslo  members in refusing to receive four applications  en bloc, while they had constituted part of  forty who had been so received that same  morning,   Those who attended the meeting last evening  would hardly have imagined that both sides had  agreed through their committees to get clown to  business and stop scraping. At the afternoon  conference it was generally understood that the  evening meeting would be conducted on this  assumption :  The only basis on which businesscan be transacted is for the board to proceed with the election to fill the. vacancies���������being the the vice-  presidency, half the seats on the Council, and  half the seats on the board of arbitration.  After the election of these officers and the  transaction of any unfinished business, the  board is to adjourn.  If the Kaslo delegates have any special business on which they wish the board to take action  they are under the by-laws, at liberty to call a  meeting in the usual way at Kaslo, or any other-  place in the district, bur 'he business must be  specified when they make the call.

Well, the Kaslo delegation has departed, and  strangely enough they did not take the South  Koetenay Board of Trade with them.  It^is suspected   that   the   Kaslo   capitalists  found the toy too heavy and decided to return  again.  * *  By the way, there is much soreness among  some of the Kaslo people on account of John A.  "Watson's vote on the motion to adjourn. The  Kaslo people claim that Watson threw them.  The Miner earnestly; wishes that the Kaslo  people would carry their complaint to Mr.  Watson personally. If that gentleman is in  the same mood as he was when the insult was  tendered to- Harold Selous they would have  reason probably to think that they were roughly thrown.  * *  Just how the Kaslo people managed to stick  together may be explained by the following,  which was picked up in the crowd at the first  meeting on Wednesday morning early :  PLAN OP CAMPAIGN.
