Array /*.  Whole Numbek 390.  Nelson, British Columbia, Saturday, Feb.  12, 1898.  Price Five Cents  %/  THE CITY COUNCIL,  BUSINESS TRANSACTED AT EEGU*  LAB AND SPECIAL SESSIONS.  Cuii-lillne _f nut Be Slopped���������4. It. Mtrii-lian  Ippolntcd Clly Clerk, Water  r������_uiiilul*-ier, Et_.  When Mayor Houston called tbe city  council to order on Monday afternoon,  all tbe aldermen were in tbeir places. In  the absence of tbe city clerk the mayor  performed tbe duties.  The first business of the session was to  authorize tbe mayor aud clerk to sign a  contract with Noel & Thompson for im-  . provemeots on Ward street, for $2520,  the contractors to give bond_ to amount  of 25 per cent of contract. In connection with this the mayor stated that he  bad asked the contractors as to whether  they intended employing Italians on the  work and was told that only Canadians  and Swedes would be employed.  TLe"flna_n;o committee recommended  payment of accounts read at last meeting  and checks were ordered to be issued for  the amounts.  ij  Accounts were received as follows:  Lawrence Hardware Co, $267.63; J.  - Elliott, $125; Spokaue Northern Telegraph Co., $3 05; Drs. LaBau nnd Forin,  8125: J. A. Turner & Co., $5.75j_-Drs.  Hall and Hawkey, $10; Tribune Publishing Co., 855.05; Wilson & Harshaw, $50..  50; A. H. Holdich, 830.  A letter was received fiom Dr. LaBau,  medical health officer, stating that the  cesspool at the Kootenay Lake General  Hospital haaoverllowed aud that tbe filth  waa now running down on the street  endangering the health of tbe people  living in that vicinity. The letter suggested tbat a cemented brick cess pool be  bnilt, which when full could be pumped  out and contents carted away. After  some discussion the matter was referred  to the public works committee to report  at next meeting of council as to best  means of abating the nuisance.  The mayor presented the basis of  agreement entered into for settlement of  dispute between the Kootenay Lake  Hospital and tbe Corporation, the principal terms of which were that the council are to .furnish the hospital with water  free, the hospital board to make no claim  against the city or ogainst any private  individual for connecting with tbe pipe  which they claimed belonged to tbem.  Each party to the suit to pay their own  costs.  On motion of Aldermen Teetzel and  Hillyer the council ratified the settlement.  J. H- Bowes wrote asking for a copy ot  complaint and engineer's report re Carney Hall. After discussion it was decided that the owoers be notified to submit  their plans for improvements to- city  engineer for approval.  Tbe city engineer was instructed to fix  tbe grades ou Vernon, Water, Josephine,  Ward and Stanley streets.  ' The auditor's report showed receipts  _ii.ee last report as follows: Miscellan-  eous,8175; licenses, $3872.50; water, $321;  police court fines, $35.25.  : Teetzel-Hillyer���������That the resignation  ot City Clerk Sealey be accepted to date  from February 1.   Carried.  Teetzel-Gilker���������That the chief of  police visit ull hotels, saloons, cigar  ���������tores and other places where gambling  for money is carried on and put a stop to  same. Iu the discussion which followed  on the motion Alderman Teetzel stated  tbat there were at least half a dozen  gambling games going on in the city  every night and a stop should be put to  it at once. It ia the duty of the council  to protect strangers coming to the city  from being robbed. If the chief of  police could not entorcejthe law regarding gambling the council should get  some one who could. There were men  working in the mines who were professional gamblers.  , Alderman Hillyer opposed tbe motion  and thought that if a man was weak  enough to risk bis money in nickel in  the slot machines or gambling games he  should be allowed to do so. It is a difficult matter to draw the line and the  motion if passed would encourage men to  go into private rooms and play for large  stakes. He did not think anyone could  stop gambling.  The mayor stated that he had taken  upon himself to close the nickel in the  slot machines on Saturday last. Such  " machines are*a fraud and the percentage  is always in favor of the house. Motion  was agreed to, Alderman Hillyer opposing.  Alderman 'Hillyer gave notice that at  \l the next meeting of council he would  introduce  a by-law to close all business  bouses on Sunday.  Applications for the appointment of  city clerk, water commissioner, assessor  and collector were received from Harry  "Wright, John Watson and J.K.Strachan.  On the third ballot Mr.   Strachan was  elected.   Council adjourned to Thursday  Janury 10th.  ADJOUBNED    ME lmifC*.  Council met pursuant to adjournment  on * huisday afternoon. After tbe minutes of previous meeting were read, Aid.  Hillyer moved nnd_AJd. Madden seconded a motion that the motion passed at  Inst meeting re gambling be rescinded  and struck off the minutes. The motion  was lost, only tie mover aud seconder  voting yea.  The public works committee reported  recommending that a new cesspool bo  built at tho Kootenay Lake General  Hospital, cost not to exceed $150 and that  the hospital board be required to see  that it is kept pumped out regularly.  The accounts read at last meeting were  on report of finance committee ordered to  be paid.  A communication from H. J. Evans,  asking the council to grant him a franchise for 25 years for gns works, to be  completed in 2 years, wos read  and   referred" to  the   board of works.  The contractors for Ward street improvements were granted permission to  dump surplus clay on Baker street to  the extent of 100 yards at a cost of 30  cents per yard.  The question of securing a site for a  cemetery was discussed and action was  deferred until the snow goes away.  In discussing the question of ways and  means, the mayor stated that the assessment would be completed by next meot-  ingof council. It is expected that the value  of real estate will be over $1,000,000, and  of improvements over $500,000. He was  in favor of striking a rate o������ ten mills on  the dollar ou real estate ouly.  Council adjourned until Monday at  3 p. m. _  TO IMPB0VE THE TEAILS.  B.G.  THE NEW PARLIAMENT BUILDINGS  FORMALLY OPENED.   '  Moat InitioslngOreuinnle.

Before leaving for Victoiia lo attend  the session of tbe pioviucial parliament,  J. Fred Hume, M. P. P., was given  largely sigued petitions, urging the government to make appropriations for the  improvement of tbe wagon roads on  Crawford creel:, Six Mile creek, acd the  tote road leading to Ymir. The South  Kootenay Board of Trade at its meeting  on Tuesday afternoon endorsed the petitions. Parties who are well acquainted  with the sections ot tlie country nff.cied  state that the improvement of the roads  mentioned would be of great benefit to  the trade of Nelson.  On Crawford creek a wagon road about  (eu or twelve miles long from the head of  Crawford Bay to the divide would be a  great convenience to a large number of  mine owners who are developing properties in that locality, and bring the entire  trade of that sectiou this way. Pack  trails would be built from the main wagon road to the different mines, greatly  lessening the cost and labor involved in  getting in .applies which as things are  now have to be packed from the head of  the bay. A considerable number of men  are employed on the divide, who, if better transportation facilities are not pro-'  vided from this side will be forced to  biiug in their supplies from Fort Steele,  although the haul is very much longer.  Mr. Pettifc has 40 men at work on his  properties this winter and as soon as  spring opens intends to increase the  number to one hundred.  The conditions along Six Mile crpek  are very similar to those o_ Crawford  creek. There are a number of very rich  claims along tbe creek and ou the divide  which would; be rapidly developed if  better transportation facilities were  provided for getting iu supplies from  Nelson. Tho improvement of the Ymir  tote read would bring a large volume of  trade to the city from that rich camp,  and be"a grSat convenience to the different mines in the vicinity of the route. It  ia hoped tbns the government will recognize the petitions by granting liberal  appropriations for the object mentioned.  Stcniiicr Koutenny Strikes u Bock.  While making a lauding at Robson on  Monday night the steamer Kootenay of  the C. P. B. Arrow lake fleet struck a  submerged rock in the middle of the  Columbia river and stove a hole in her  hull about eighteen inches square. "The  vessel was at.once headed for, shore and  the passengers safely landed without  accident. Thevessel is provided with water  tight compartments and (here wa. about  four feet of water in the compartment  in which the hole was located. It will  take.probably a couple of weeks to repair  then-jury.  " The Kootenay is the finest steamer on  the inland waters oE British Columbia  and was built last year at Arrowhead for  the lake travel. She is of the same style  as the illfated Nakusp which was burned  at Nakusp early in the winter.  The Golden Dale.  An important strike has been made on  the Golden Dale on Toad Mountain.  The full face of the tunnel is now in good  ore carrying gold, silver and ^copper.  Assays are now being made of the new  strike and high values in all three metals  are expected.

Last summer interest in Forty-nine  creek properties was revived and a  number J pf claims which had been  abandoned were re-staked and a number of new locations of great promise  were made. At the present time the  whole creek is staked and a large  amount of developement work is being done. Many fine samples of free  milling gold ore are being.brought in  iilmost every day. and the prospects  are that it will be a .favorite field for  mining investment during the coming  summer. Years ago large sums of  money were taken out of the old  placers washings from the free milling  ore along the creek and experienced  mining men say that it is one of the  .richest districts in the province.  -   rineer Kane Headed.

The  Miner has received permission to re-publish the poem, which was  Editorially reviewed in tte issue of January 29.  Lay it there iu the shadow,   for God's sake don't call tbat bim!  That bundle of frozen clothing, we found in tbe drift," ain't Jim.  Not the Jim as I knew���������my partner���������Jim, fit and strong as an ox!  That thing without muscle or movement and as limp as my sodden socks!  Leave that alone in the shadows, aud pile a log on the fire,  Jim's gone, I guess, where the sparks'go. aclimbin* higher and higher.  Not that they gets there neither.   That log sucked snnlight and dew  In bygone springs when it budded where the yellow snowdrops grew;  And now it's goin' to uothiu' but ash and 0 feebie spark  That wavers away towards heaven un' goes out, of course, in tbe dark.  Climbiti'!     Is that all we're made for?     Like the armies of silent pine  Which climb an' climb on forever from the gulch to the timber line?  Not one in a million gets there, when they do they wither and die.  See them! Whitened,withered,wind-twisted,corpse trees in a wiuter sky!  Pros pec tin'! that's what they call it;   hard labour au' hunger an' .cold  That's what prospect in' is, mate; a hunt for a devil, Gold!  Gold that buys women and whiskey���������bauds shaky an' eyesight dim,  A u'a lot of bummers to suck you dry, but never a pal like Jim.  *     ���������   "��������� * .* * ���������       *      '  * -   .  *  That was'iit the way as Jim talked. No! Tbatwas'ntthe way Jim thought,  He worked 'cos he loved the labour; he was born to fight, so he fought,  He loved the hardship, the danger, black canyon or shifting slide���������  I've seen him laugh at the risks he took, at the very place where he died.  An' it was a game worth playin'!  Alone���������at the heart of the world,  Where the mighty snowslides thundered, and the long grey vapors curled.  When we mere pigmies ventured to storm Creation's hold,  Staked ou r lives on the blindest bluff an' played the World for her gold.  Climbed to the throne of Morning; sank shafts to the roof of Hell-  Till the hot air scorched our faces an' water hissed as it fell;  Worked like men in the daytime, slept 'neath the sweet-breathed trees,  Lulled by the drone of the foaming crick an' the song of the chickadees.  We had Great Things then for our comrades, the Forces of Earth for foes,  There's one of us down in the battle, an' another don't care when he goes.  They laughed in our face in the cities; tlie fat smug cities back east  Thought we were both of us luny, something half-man half-beast!  Cities!   My God, we build 'em.   Do you mind how Rossland rose;  Do you mind the first log shanty we built amongst the snows;  Do yon mind how two years later their iron horses raced  From North and South the Boundary liDe to the goal that he had placed.  And now there are twice three thousand, where then there were no but  three.  Though devil' a one in Rossland town has heard of Jim or me.  Do you mind the fire at Kaslo, or the storm that drowned her out,  We warmed our hands at the blazing shacks and rebuilt in a waterspout.  Do you mind���������well, of course you mind it, and that my God is the end,  Nerveless, voiceless, sightless, and deaf to the voice of its friend.  No! No!   It is not the reason.   I see that the heavens are far  Butldon't believe that the sparks go out-I k_*ow that they reach the star.  GENERAL LOCAL NEWS.  EVENTS   OF   INTEREST   IN   AND  ABOUND NELSON.

The opening of Parliament which  has by this time taken place is an  event of note in the history of the  Province. Beside the Speakers chair  stood four other gentleman all ot  whom have occupied that' seat of  honor, from Dr. Helmckcn who was  the first Speaker downwards! It is  not often that the development of a  conn try is so rapid that a man may 1 ive to  see it grow from its very beginning,  throngh its log hub stage and finally  emerge as one of the great countries  of the world and house its legislators  in a palace. But that is what British  Columbia has done.  The province, as farasbuirian foresight can tell is on the eve ��������� of greater  developments still, not the least of  these will be the growth of Kootenay  which even so short time ago as when  the foundations of this new parliament House were laid was almost an  unknown wil'1**1116813. She is destined  Pr- '-"-���������*? to lead, in population, and in  trade. Already 6he tr-vids hard upon  the heels of the --^st cities. The progress tjjat^sure to be the result of  t*i������*l<-'onstruction   of  the Crow' Nest  .**  _r*ass line is hardly yet understood by  us here, much less by our neighbors at  the coast.   The bringing of a supply  of cheap coal to West Kootenay means  a great deal,  but the opening up of  Bast   Kootenay   piobablyjjjjeans__jiu  great deal  more.  There is every indication that we here in Nelson and  our friends in the Sloean and at Rossland will have to keep pegging away  to hold our lead against the minors on  the other side of the Selkirks. Between us we ought to make such a  country well worthy of its noble head  piece just completed at Victoria.  PAIR PLAY.  The little strip of Alaska which  skirts the Pacific Coast of our nothern  territories is likely to give as much  trouble as any small piece of land can.  It is a .spot of mud on the gorgeous  robes of international comity. It is  practically of \y> value at all to its  owners the Americans and it is only a  means by whicn they can trip us up  on our way in.to our own country. It  is the clown who lies down before the  opening dooroand throws down the  person entering. Although we have  the right of navigating our own rivers  whose mouths happen to be in this  strip of countrv, it appears that the  Americans are able to institute  troublesome customs regulations to  vessels passing tltrough their territorial  waters. The Colonist points out tbat  we can retaliate by imposing similar  -conditions on American vessels going  north all'of which have to navigate  British waters. Retaliation does not  seem to be the wisest mode of settling  .affairs of this kind. Even if successful it leaves a rankling behind it and  induces our rivals to make themselves  nasty again at the first opportunity.  Rather should some way be found of  making a graceful concession to our  neighbors in some other direction,  which would be heaping coals of fire  on their head and would be much  more likely to make them rescind the  offensive regulations for very shame  than any-battle, with similar weapons.  The spirit which underlies a policy of  this kind has been exhibited by the  Seattle Post-Intelligencer, which proposed to charge the B. C. Bureau of  Information established in  Seattle, a  license of one thousand dollars a month  to carry, on its business there. It is  pleasant to hear that this jealous  spirit is by no means universal across  the border. The Seattle Times repudiates the suggestion of its contemporary and says let the best t">wn win*  it* Seattle cannot furnish good sound  reasons why persons northward bound  should outfit there, why let them  go elsewhere. The same generous  spirit is exhibited by our neighbor the  Spokesman-Review. In a graceful  little article, the kindly feeling of  which cannot be too much appreciated,  the paper points out that while American citizens have equal rights with  ourselves iu staking and owning claims  on the Canadian Yukon, across the  boundary, in Alaska proper, British  subjects are absolutely cut off from  staking a claim. The Review urges  that this condition of affairs which is  manifestly unjust should be remedied  by opening Alaska to our miners and  prospectors. But why only Alaska?  O, Review. The whole of the British  Empire is open to your citizens with  equal rights as far as the acquiring  and holding of property is concerned,  except in the matter of pre-emption  here. In India, iu Australia, at the  Cape and in England itself, John Bull  and Uncle Sam stand on precisely the  same footing before the law. We can  do no more.   Its your turn next Undo.  That wonderful message which ex-  Lieut-Governor Mcintosh sent to Lord  Dufferin has been modified. Originally it announced the possession of the  key to the treasure vaults of British  Columbia. Now it is the treasure  vaults of Rossland which tbe company  commands. This is wonderfully pretty  but it is not business. It would have  been quite true if Mr. Mcintosh had  quietly whispered to Lord Dufferin,  with a wink "on the side" that they  had the key of the breeches pocket of  the English public. He will find out  that the key of the treasure vaults of  British Columbia is a piece of drill  steel wielded by honest industry, and  that yon'cannot open up a mine with  a trombone.  Through the courtesy of our contemporary the Victoria Colonist we  are able to publish Mr. Clivc Phillipps  Wolley's latest contribution to the  poetry of British enterprise. For  centuries her. soldiers and'sailors have  carried her Empire into the four corners of the earth and their deeds have  been celebrated in song and glowing  prose. To day it is the prospector, the  hunter, the shepherd, the cowboy,  who bear with other arms their country's sway beyond the ''seven sea?,'  No less noble are their deeds and hardships than those of their forbears and  no less deserving of record in ringing  rhymes like those which Mr. Wolley  has written. And the greatest of  these is the prospector.  Tlie ������. A.V. ltu>_ (lie C.������. K.  The Columbia and Kootenay group of  mines on Columbia mountain, about two  miles north east of Rossland pa_sed into  the hands of the British American Cor.  poration on Monday last The purchase  price was $275,000. Tbe group which  was owned by the Trail Mining Company includes the Columbia and Kootenay, the Copper Jack, tbe Tip Top and  the Kootenay  fraction,   and   baa  been  extensively developed by two tunnels and  a shaft. Governor Mackintosh states  that bebelives the mine which he has  just purchased contaius the greatest  body of gold and iron ore tbat has ever  beet, discovered at the same stage of  development in any camp and is convinced that it will become an immense  paying proposition.  tiraml I'orlu Council.  The Attorney General has decided  that the recent municipal election in  Grand Forks is null and void and suggests that the people of that city agree  on a mayor and council irrespective  of property qualifications and then  petition the Legislature to pass a  special bill providing for the chosen  council to take their seats for the  remainder of the present year, by  which time there will be ample material for u legal council.  To rush for the Corbin C_.nr._r.  Bichard Armstrong of Rossland has  gone lo Ottawa as ^delegate to advocate  the granting of a charter to D. C. Corbin _. railway into the Boundary creek  country. The expense of the trip is  placed at $600, of which sum the city  council of Grand Forks have donated  $300, J. A. Manly gives $200 and the  Grand Forks townsite company, $100.  C. V. U. Surveyors.

P.  Rand, a Spokane mining broker, recently in commenting on tbe mineral output  of South Kootenay tor tbe month of  January. "There are but three States in  tbe Union that passed tbe January record  for South Kootenay during 1897."  Tbe average production of all metals in  Montana last year was $3,352,291 per  month; Colorado averaged #2,914.735 and  California $1,569,235. Tbis puts the  district fourth in tbe list of producers op  this continent with an excellent chance  of whining a higher place. Tbe average  production of all tbe mines of West  Australia in 1897 was only 81,030,333  which places it below Kootenay in the  list of wealth producers. That is the  point tbat needs emphasis among investors in the east, many of whom have not  a proper idea ot tbe wealth and the possibilities ot tbe Kootenay mines.     -  I.4MJ.T. UstalUtloM.

Nine men are now at work on the Excelsior group in tbe Sloean and more  will be added as soon as room can be  made for them to work in the ore. At  present it is estimated that there is  812,000 worth of ore in sight in the upraise. Drifting in the ore is now going  on both in the shaft and in the upraise  witb the belief that some place will be  found where the rich ore body leads to  Iftwer. depth. A carload shipment will  be made to the smelter about the first of  March.  STARTING KL0NDIKEBS.  Capt. Bay Keports to ike Mar Department  That oo Per Cent are Destitute.  Capt. Hay, tbe special representative  in tbe Klopdike, of the United States  War Department has reported by special  messenger, who arrived at Seattle  '' last week. The state of affairs there  as revealed by Capt. Ray's despatches is  even worse than suspected. He advises  the United States government to take  steps to effectually check immigration to  the interior of Alaska of all persons not  fully supplied to last two years; giving  as his reason that there is no way to earn  a living at places where new disooveriea  have been made within the lost eight  months either, in Alaska or tbe -North  West Territories. There is no employment for any large number of people in  any capacity. '  ' Capt. Ray further states tbat only  about 7 per cent of all,the people entering  during the past year bave earned their  living and hundreds are now scattered  along tbe rivers destitute of food, clothing and money.  Tbe people coming in have,not the  faintest conception of what to do to earn  a living and after spending all they bring  become dazed nnd helpless. The lawless  element are banding together along tbe  rivers for purposes of plunder; and he  suggests that patrols be placed along the,  rivers as tbe movements of the people  demand. The publication of Capt Ray's  report as coming from an official source  has caused a great sensation as be baa  had a broader field for observation than  others who have made reports. It adds  one more to tbe many warnings given regarding the dangers., to be met in tbe  northern gold fields. ..
