Array $*  <?%v*  M  ''���������*y%?  Whole Number 386.  'V  Nelson, British Columbia, Saturday, Jan.  15, 1898.  Price Five Cents  EAST   WABD    ALDEKMEW     AfiE  ELECTED BY AOOLAMATIOtf.  Klrclloii In Most Wnnl lurried ttyttllker,  Madden   ami   Ylhallvy   t*������r  AliU-ruicii.  It isan old aud deep-rooled superstition that the bride will be bappytliat tlie  sun shines upon and us there does not  appear to be any valid reason why the  same Ihiug bhould not apply to civic olli-  cers. Nelson's new aldeinicu should be  exceptionally blessed during their term  otBervice, seeing that Thursday, tbe polling diiy. was by far tbe brightest and  nicest day of the wbole winter up to date.  Tho mayor aud aldermen from tbe east  ward were elected by ncclnmationas there  were no candidates named to oppose  them. In tbe west ward there were six  nominations which made an election in  that district necessary. The nominations  were made before Magistrate E. A. Crease  ou Monday, .Tannery 10 between the  hours of 12 a. ni. and 2 p. iu. Tbey were  as follows:  John Houston, for mayor, proposed by  Fred Irvine audscconded by Uobert A.  lien wick.  Charles Hillyer, for aldeiniiineast ward,  proposed by A. J. Marks and seconded by  Jacob Dover.  J. J, Malone, for alderman east ward,  proposed by Robert Shiell and seconded  by H. J. Evans,    .  W. F. Teetzel, for alderman east ward,  proposed by James McDonald and seconded by J. H. Matkeson,  Dr. E. C. Arthur, for alderman, west  ward, proposed by A. E. Hodgins and  seconded by A. H.Clements.  Austin H. Clements, proposed by Dr.  E. C.-Arthur aud seconded by A. O.  Shaw.  Frank Fletcher, for alderman west  ward, proposed by G. C. Hodge and  seconded by A. J...Hipporson and A. H.  Cietnents.  ' James \. Gilker, for alderman west  ward, proposed" by John A. Gibson Ji:nd  sec onded by C. A. "Waterman.  Thomas Madden, 'ior alderman west  ward, proposed by H- B. Tbompsan and  seconded by J. Tied Hume.  E. Percy Whalley, for alderman west  ward,' proposed by Percy Criddle and  seconded by E. C. Senckler.  The'polling took place in the empty  store next to D. McArtbur & Co. furniture store on Baker Street, between the  hours of 8 a. m. and 4 p. m. E. A. Crease  J. P. was returning officer, G. L. Lennox  poll clerk, aud R. Ben wick, C. Seeley  aod OB. Wolvertou were the scrutineers.  In tne early pni t of tbe week as soon as  tbe nominations were made it was  thought by many that Arnhur and Clements had a very good chiihid'of securing  a place on the council with either'- Whal-  ]ey or Fletcher for the other, but as pulling day approrched it was not n difficult  matter to seo that Houston's iufliiencc  was overcoming all 'objections and difficulties, The principal .bono of contention was the continuation of the payment  of the mayor's salary of ������2,000 a year,  nnd while tbe majority of voters consider  that a mayor should receive some compensation there were not a few who  thought that the amount he now gets is  out of all proportion lo the services rendered or the ability of the co-porntion  finances to pay it. That was nbont the  only difference of opinion betweea lo  the opposing tickets and thej*esiilt sliow-  ed tliatthe people are perfectly satisfied  to let everything remain as it is. There  was very little canvassing done by "Arthur  Clements or Fletcher which we thick is  a mistake because there are many voters  whose minds are not made up even when  they are at the poll and in any case like  to be solicited for their vote and. influence "Tom" Madden was.fully alive to  the importance of pushing a good thing  along and cutters could be seen at any  time daring the day rounding *p -supporters and seeing that they voted early  and often.  Tile city elerk did not let tbe grass  | grow under bis feet and. when lie ,,was  not assisting Tom Madden lie was going  around with acovered omnibus to sucb  outlying" place as the smelter., and bringing in tho sheep to tlie fold.-   Considering that it was at best onl/-the small  1 half of a contest there were quite- a. few  bets made, mostly nt about 2 to 1 in  favour of the Houston  ticket,  going;to  I show that there was a good deal of coii-  [fidenceou the street as to the result.. At  ;4 o'clock the poll closed atid about half  [an hour afterwards the figures were declared.  Thomas Madden 81,   J. A.  Gil-"  leer 67, E. P. Whalleyt������7; Dr. Arthur  4%  LA- H. Clements 33, Frank.Fletcher, v  The result, proved that "the. majx in  the street", was right the Houston ticket  being elected complete. It was not even  found to be necessary to make use of- the  14 voters who were transferred from the  east to the west ward at the Inst   minute,  iu case of nccideut wo presume*.  Tho successful candidates were naturally jubilant aitd headed by Mayor Houston nnd accompanied by A. J. Marks, J.  Dovor, "Jerry" Robillard and a few other  admiring friends proceeded to take in tbe  town, much to tho delight and profit of  the hotel nnd saloon keepers. After  making tbe rouud of the town and testing the difference iu the numerous brands  of whiskeys ifc was decided tc ��������� adjourn  for supper. After supper the excitement  of tbe contest bad apparently died out  and there was nothing more doing than  on any ordinary evening. There were  no speeches made at any time therefore  we must wait to see what effect the  magic influence of tbe council chamber  will have iu assisting our uew city fathers to disgorge from their fertilo braius  some of the gieat schemes for the  provement of our town which  sure they have in store.

Several very promising proper-  tics on El Dorado, Bonanza and Henderson creeks have been acquired for the  company.  Mr. Pitrie's acconnt of the expedition  nnd also of some of the salient features  of Dawson City and the surrounding  country is very interesting. The party  succeeded iu getting their whole outfit to  Dawson, though not without losing several of their horses. Tney shot all the  rapids on the way without shipping a  drop of water. ' Tbe country around  Dawson is described as a kind of table  land with bills only some 400 or 500 feet  high. The town contains about 2000  people and there may be 3000 in tbe adjacent valleys. The value of claims Las  scarcely been exaggerated. Mr. Piirie  knew of instances where claims on El  Dorado had sold for $150,000 cash. Own-  ess of claims sublet parts of their claims  to other miners who work them on a  basis of a rent of from 50 to 60 per cent  of the gold taken out. The system la  known as "laying".

The report of the second niin.Au!  general meeting of'the LUlobe't Fraser  River, etc., company is not a cheerful  document. There is none of tlie clarion  blast about ib which heralded Mr,  Iloruc Payne's approach to this  country last year. Its tone is what  may be called muffled, and we understand that the reports of the, meeting  which appeared in the daily papers  were also muffled.  The report commences by stating  that the Income and' Expenditure  account has/t debit balance of ������J3,!T95  which "yonV wiH note" (the shareholders . should scarcely require to.be told  this) "has been arrived at by writing  oli the sum of ������31,025 on account of  deposits on options, cost of work done  in * * * claims subsequently abandoned, and various, other expenditure  which must be deemed to have been  unproductive." Tho "must be deemed"  13 very funny. Turning to.the balance  sheet1 wo find a sum of ������1800 for directors' fees, and ������1024 odd for travelling  expenses both of" which we. should  think "must be deemed" to be unproductive. The value of the various  descriptions of mining -������-property  acquired is put down at ������173,901 from  which ������31,025 has been -.yrigien off  leaving the company- at pr(Renb in  possession of property which it values  at ������140,876. The company has ������55,-  370 invested in good funds.- Amongst  its assets appears the curious item  Loans on Securit>\������7544. .It-would be  interesting to examine this security,  and il/is the first time we have heard  of a 'mining' company going into the  money lending business. *  A Card ������r Tliiiuk*.  The Ladies Hospital Aid desires to  extend its thanks to the Kaslo Dramstic  Club and the citizens of Kelson for the  entertainment and patronage to the  entertainment whereby the Ladies Aid-  realized $&5. The proportion of the'proceeds for 'the. Ladies Aid was"$8J, but  Mr, Fraser kindly presented them with  $45 for their share. ��������� =���������  Death i>l*a Wisll-K'iowii Contractor. ������������������������  ������������������We regret, to have to record the djat b  of Dan Dunn, of acute Bright's disease,  fit New Denver. He was well Known all  along the main line of the C.P.B. and  was foreman of construction on theC,&  K. railway iu 1.--90-9L After leaving  here-he buiifthe extension of the Nakusp  Municipal elections at Rossland have  caused much more excitement than those  iu our city. Ou Monday there were two  nominations for mayor, H. S. Wallace  proposed by Robert Hunter and Ross  Thompson, and Robert Scott nominated  by J. Fred Ritchie and J. A. Smith. The  aldermen on H. S- Wallace's list were  first ward, A. S. Goodeve, C. O. Lalonde.  Second ward, Ross Thompson, J. A.  Barrett, third ward, John S. Cliite. Jr.,  J. Edgrea. Those proposed in the interest  of-'Col" Robert Scott were: first ward,  Hector McPheison, Francis Joshua  Walker, second ward, J. Fred Ritchie.  It appears Unit at the last minute  Frank Walker and J. Fred Ritchie withdrew leaving Col. Scott with only one  alderman on his list. Evidently he did  not consider he would be able to carry  out his ideas if he were elected with but  one favorable alderman on the board,  having at least a two-thirds majority  against-him, so he conclnded to withdraw also, It must have been exceedingly  nunoying to his friends that the "Col."  decided not to face tbe music for another  year. ��������� There can be no doubt .that  tbey would like to see bint have tbe  chance of steering the city through tbe  shoals and quicksands of finance by  which it appears at the present time  to be surrounded.  We were rntber surprised to see J.  Fred Ritcbe in, town on ��������� Monday as we  were under tbe impression that he was a  strong supporter of Col. Scott but on this  occasion at any rate he appears to have  gone back on his friend possibly having  i'i mind the old adage that "he who runs  away may live to flight another day."  In consequence of tbe backsliding: of  the Col's .friends his wbole' ticket was  withdrawn and/ ,H������: S. Wallace, and.his  alderman were .elected by acclamation.  In the course of tbe evening the'city took  on a festive ait and the friends of Mr.  Wallace celebrated tbe occasion wilh a  torchlight procession of some 250 or 300  people, consisting of the band, the volunteer fire brigade, and a crowd carrying  torches, who proceeded to take in tbe  city bringing np finally at tbe Brunswick Hotel where the band discoursed  tweet music from the balcony interspersed  .with* remarks from Mr. Walece and  Messrs. Goodeve, Rolt, Lalonde, and  .01 ute. Daring tbe evening Mr. Scott  informed tbe Rossland Miner that the  ejuise of his withdrawal from the contest  was the retirement of the candidates who  ke^expected would support.him in.the  To'uncil, and not wishing to serve a year  in office without any prospect of harmony, although assured cf victory at the  polls. It was known to all Mr. .Scotts  friends that be was not anxious to run  again.  The Rossland Miner appears to have  up a very active crusade against the Col.  from the commencement of tbe contest  and upon the electiou by acclamation of  H. S. Wallace the Edition received quite  an ovation as the procession pawed the  office of tbe paper, being "cheered" by  the "boys" in the procession, after making a little frpeaeh complimenting all  concerned upon the result of the contest.  KASLO.  The citizens of Kiaslo did not appear to  take anymore interest in the municipal  election than those of Nelson. The nominations were, for mayor, Charles W;  McAnn proposed by Augustus Carney  ^.nd Gilbert Hartib, M.D. Eor aldermen,  Dr. Harlin, John D. Moore, Fred E.  Archer, A. W. Goodenough, George  Whiteside and D. Yv7 Moore, there being  no other aspirants for civic honors, thos'-  ���������named were declared elected by acclama-  tiou. It should be well for the m'a'riage-  meat of the city's affairs, that a mayor  and alderman should be elected who������t  appenr^tb' so thoroughly- represent the  wishesrof the citiezns. ���������  & SI; can railway from Three Forks to  Sandon aud was latterly employed on the  Sloean City branch. In an account of  the West Kootenay district written by  Julian Ralp and published in Harper's  Magazine in the -autumn of '91 his portrait was given as..representing a typical  western railroad contractor, as undoubtedly ho was, a big man physically, with  a heart quite as large in proportion.  Another -Sawmill.  Architects and builders and all those  intending to build daring the coming  season will probably not have to wait eo  long for material as has been the eaae  hitherto. Richard S lackey has commenced the construction of another sawmill on the water front opposite the  north end of Cedar street. Tho building  when completed will be 26 ft. by 60 ft.  nnd' will coutai-i besides u 48 in. circular  saw, a planer, latb mill and shingle mill,  run by - a 25 horse power engine. He  intends getting logs either by water from  Kootecay lake or by the CP.R, tbe  track .adjoining the premises. There is  evory .chance of doing a good-business.  HOTEL PflAIK IMPROVEMENTS.

We understand that the owners of the  Pbair hotel are arranging to make some  very considerable alterations and improvements to that hostelry in the near  future, to enable it to provide the kind  of accommodation which has become necessary to our city and incidentally, no  doubt, to compete successfully ;with the  new Hume building. The whole of tbe  dirt facing Stanley nnd Victoria streets  is to.be taken away and a brick or stone  foundation is to be bnilt under tbe house  making a ground floor 16 feet high to  contain- n hall, dining: room, billiard  saloon, bar aud kitchen, etc. It is prob-  bable that the whole building may be  brick- veneered but the plans have not  been definitely agreed upon yet Mr.  Phair is at present at Vancouver whence  he was sent for to consult with the architect as to the best way of arranging the  house., -    '      -    .   ,    ,   Hospital .pratlM.  .   Nelson, B. C, January Jltb. 1898.:  Editor Minier: -,, '   .  ',, Sib ������-Kiiidly.i allow.. me epaoe, for the  correction of a statement which frequently appears in the papers of Nelson. In  announcing a death which has occurred  in any hospital in the city, the term "tbe  hospital" is used without specifying  which hospital is meant. The majority  ot people take it for granted that tbe  General Hospital is referred to. Such a  statement appeared iu last week's papers  and ������s the result the public have credited  the General Hosrutal with another death  which it is not entitled to. Tbe remaik  is Ireqaentiy beard that there mn6t be a  lob of deaths nt "the hobpital," meaning  the General Hospital, when as a matter  of fact there have been ouly four deaths  since February 1807. It is only fair to  the institution and those intimately connected with it to make this correction.  Of course there can be no intention to  convey any wrong impression and it will  only be necessary to call attention to tbe  matter to prevent its recurrence.  Yours very truly,  Geo. A. li. Hall,  Hospital Physician.  in-IVtict- of IlrltlNli Columbia,  A meeting was beld on January 4th  in a room over the Hiidsor's Hay Go's,  store to coDbider the question of organizing a militia regiment to assist in tbe  iulfiiul defence uf the province in the first  place and incidenfly <o strengthen tbe  general defences of tbe empire. - There  were about fifteen gentlemen present.

One of the sills of the mill  fell on to his side knocking him down  fortunately without breaking any  bones. He is not yet able to work,  although not contined to his bed.  The current number of the B. C.  Mining Record is full of interesting  information about its special industry  and contains several portraits of local  celebrities. There is also an excellent  view of Nelson. This journal is a  credit to its editor and the Province at  large.  Judgement was reserved in the  appeal of Chamberlain vs. B. C. Smelt  ing & Refining Co., Trail. The case  was heard before Judge Forin', and  was for $500 damages for. injuries  received by an explosion in the smelter at Trail on January 10th, 1806.  Mike Monaghun was in town this  week^from Sandon, He says things  are very quiet in that city owing to  the fact that all the miners appear to  be saving their money to enable them  to get up to Alaska in the spring.

The  weather'has been unusually fine for  that kind of sport and it has been a  very pleasant' sight to seethe young  iadies and their .."beaus" learning the  jntricasies of the "outsifle edge" or the  ���������'Jrape vine" nob omitting the art^bf  falling gracefully. ���������  What a beautiful hunting ground  our municipality would make for a  dqgeatcher on the Jook-out for -big,  stftrng dogs that would haul a sleigh  ������rom Djjrea to Dawson city.

He himself was l>orn at Yale and  educated in England and he is now  stationed at Fort Steele. It is a novel  sight to see Her Majesty's uniform in  the streets of Nelson.  On January 11th before a full court  at Victoria an appeal was heard. in  the case of Garvey vs. The West  Kootenay Land Co.���������The original  action was to enforce the carrying  out of a contract to sell some lots at  Salmo and was heard before Judge  Forin who gave judgement for the  plaintiff with damages $75.'

Superintendent Hiissey of the Provincial police came in on Wednesday  night's train. He will remain here a  few days to supervise the finishing  and furnishing of the new County  jail and to install the chief jailor Mr.  Robert Liddell who comes from Vic-r  toria with eleven years experience of  that kind of work.

It will also  be lomeinbered how Mr. Turner  attempted to throw dust in our eyes'  by his celebrated telegram asserting  that there was a tax on coal. Probably  no ono was more surprised than the  Premier himself at the storm that  unfortunate telegram produced.  Whatever qualities as a politician be  may lack no one can accuse Mr. Turner of being anything but an honest  man. The real author of that telegram  sits close by him at the council board  and in all matters of Dunsmuir interest plays Mepbistopbek's to Mr. Turner's Faust. But this is wandering.  What we wanted to say is that we  trust the government will give the  people some opportunity of expressing  an opinion upon any proposed legislation before it is too late. As a matter  of fact they are still painfully ignorant  of all matters relating to mining in  Victoria and upon this subject at any  rate the people of Kootenay may  reasonably expect to be consulted.

SATURDAY, JAN. 15. 18������8.  HOUSTON'S LAMBS.  Once more the farce known as a  Municipal Election has been enacted  in Nelson. In other words Mr. Houston  has asked the citizens to return him as  mayor and to send him n council who  will follow his beck and call, and they  have done so. The east ward made no  attempt whatever at independence,  and sent in their three lambs without  a murmur. In the west however an  effort was made aud three sturdy  candidates were put forward who refused to bow to , the Houstonian will.  But the master proved too strong for  tbem. He produced three more lambs  and an obedient people promptly sent  them in..-It -is possiM*-*that oneoj  thesoJambft.-fcfr. Whalley.niay develop  some little spirt nt first but As he is  alone and therefore helpless he v/ill  soon see the futility of his kicking and  either resign his seat or treat the  / ���������whole affair with contempt* Unfor-  -, tunately he has Mr. Fletcher's experience before bim. He-made a brave  effort ������o instill some backbone iuto the  council. He might as wellhare tiled to  chill rock with a stick of candy.  ia all representative institutions it  has been found advisable to have an  opposition. There is no necessity to  go into the reasons here, but it is a well  known fact. Nelson however has seen  fib to deliver herself bound Kaiicl"and  foot into Mr. Houston's hands, for  better or for worse. He has always  professed devotion to tlie town and  has shown it. He has now an opportunity of proving it up to the' hilt.  Meanwhile the public are watching to  see whether the first object of his  affections is Nelson, or John Houston.  ASSESSMENT.  The new provincial assessor is a man  of energy. He is apparently something of a prophet. Judging by his  idea ot the values of certain properties, he has got wind of a good time,  coming, bub even if his information l.c  correct wo have yet to learn that prc^  perty owners may lie taxed upon pro*  pec-live values. At the court of revision there will probably be'some lively  times and plenty of business on hand.  We have heard of instances where property is being assessed at double what  its owner is perfectly willing and is  trying hard to take for it. There is an  excellent system in vogue in a sister  country from whom we have many  lessons to learn. The government  collects'n small property tax and for  this purpose ,m'epares the assessment  rolls of the whole country. Thea  owners can object if they like, bub the,  government has the right of adding  ���������ten per cent to the valuation and buying the property at once, n This rule  acts both ways. If the government  valuers make mistakes by putting on  too high values it is all the better for  the owners, while if they go too low  no one is liable to grumble. Thepfov-.  eminent assessment rolls are used for  municipal and all other taxation.  When  Mr.  Walkem was  premier,  and no astuter politician ever guided  the provincial destines, he told a friend  that the secret in ruling British Columbia, lay in securing the votes of the  two Kootenay members.   These two  men therefore practically   ruled the  province,  only they did not know it.  Mr. Walkem took good care that they  should be ignorant of the power they  possessed.    In those days Kootenay  was not what she is now.   She was  then almost an unknown district with  a  flavor   of   by-gone    mining  days.  The creeks and canyons of the Rockies,  where now the C.P.R. shrieks and yells  and rolls its freight cars down thesteep  slopes, had yielded up ages'before their  millions   during a   short lived rush.  Forty Nine creek was as hard to reach  as Klondike.   Nelson and Ainsworth  even were as yet unknown and only  the ancient Hudson's Bay Co. carried  on its antique trade at a few points.  The   member   for   West   Kootenay,  there was only one then, was returned  by the votes of twelve constituents,  and even then Kootenay ruled British  Columbia.  Things are somewhat different now  but there is no reason why Kootenay  should not again wield her power. In  fact it is easier for her to,do so now  than it was then. Today she is the  busiest part of the province and the  wealthiest. There is nob a poor man  within her boundaries-except a few  voluntary paupers who prefer whiskey  to wealth. She contributes largely to  both the Provincial and the Dominion  exchequers. She is more widely  known for her particular industry  than ever Cariboo was, or any other  part of B. C. is. Her" population is  increasing by leaps and bounds and  she returns three members instead, of  two and ought to have four.  AH that is necessary for Kootenay  to regain and hold her old ascendency  is for her to choose men as her representatives who have some ability and  whose ideas will command attention  in the House, and it is further absolutely essential that they are all on one side  of it. It does hot really matter which.  Three men of ordinary common sense,  with the- power and wealthof-Koote-  nay behind them could easily carry  everything before them in Victoria.  With all respect to the gentlemen  who now represent us, they are not  the kind of men we want. They are  in no respect representative of Kootenay today. They are not in touch  with the men who are engaged in  making Kootenay the richest aud  greatest mining district of the world.  Standing drinks all round in a saloon  hot the only qualiQcation required  PKANCIS J, O'REIU.V.  __    Soc. C.li. A;.si>c. M. Iiisl. C.E.  M. .Am.Soc. C.E.   I'.L.S. for II.C. I'.l-S. tor B.C.

The Anaconda Standard of January 6  publishes an amusing article relative to  Nelson's chief executive, lhe article in  fall is as follows:  Great Falls, Jan. 8.���������Gen. Andrew Jensen, who for many years was engaged in  the clothing business in this city, hat is  now interested at Nelson, B. C, has been  here for some time visiting old friends  and looking after business affairs. He  states that John Houston, who was recently elected mayor ot Nelson, is none  other than the man who was engaged in  tbe newspaper business in the early days  of Great Falls. At the lime the Leader  was started, 1889, he waa employed on it,  but through some trouble with the management bis connection with tbe paper  was severed. Being a man ot hasty temper and a printer besides, he took a form  ot vengeance which must have been dear  to one who had a knowledge of the  printing art. He entered the place  where the paper was set up and deliberately turned all of the type out on the  floor and mixed it up thoroughly. . It was  "pi" of the worst kind. Naturally he left  the town, and having started he did not  rest until he safely reached the Canadian  line. A posse was organized here to  pursue him, but the advantage of some  time and the ignorance of the direction  he had taken, tbe posse's efforts were  useless. ~ Last spring he headed the  ticket of the wide-open election in Nelson  and being a man who, in spite of a hasty  temper, still possessed fair judgment  and the confidence of the community in  which he lived, be was elected to the  office by a sweeping majority. In addition to being mayor, lie also runs a paper.  In speaking of the election, Mr. Jensen  commented on the] difference in the  methods used on that and this side of  the line. "You know," said he, "that in  that country no one ever runs for an  office. There are just as many peple who  desire the jobs, but it is not the custom  for a man to get out openly and say that  he is after a certain office or any at all.  Instead, you will see a man buttonholing  people on the street and telling him his  views on England's foreign policy or  naval affairs or any other subject equally  foreign, when he really means that he  would like to be picked out for an office  where he would be called on to look after  the sanitation ot the city and like matters.  But office there is supposed to drop from  heaven npon the shoulders of the fittest  man, and he does not need to rustle tor  it-  "When they hold their meetings they  always invite the opposition, and, in foot,  the latter always seem to me to have tbe  better, of the situation. They can denounce those holding the meeting, while  all the latter can do is get up and explain. After the speakers on either side  have finished, questions are asked from  the audience and there tbe 'opposition  gets in still more effective work. It is a  peculiar country to an American at election time. The franchise is held by only  certain classes of the body politic. There  are property qualifications for the different kinds ot elections, and the whole  thing is really quite complicated."  B. 0, MUTING.

There is also supposed to be some kind  of menace to England andher sea power  in the expedition lint England is not  trembling much as yet. This fo-mid  utile fleet, a.pnvb of the iiavy that is  presently to sweep the seas of Bi-itiiins  effete navy managed to struggle as  fitras Spitbead. At least that was the  first land tbey saw when they had  drained the vile champagne out of  their eyes. Then the ehi<.f stoker or  some other'official came on deck and  asked if this was Cbin.i. Having been  informed that it was not he observed  that they had butter get more coal  ���������us they had burnt all they had started  with and sausages, as served nut to  the Germain navy, mado poor fuel So  they went into Spithead and the British Government kindly supplied these  wolves of the sea with enough coal to  struggle on somewhere els<>, just as an  organ grinder gets a shilling to move  iuto the next street. And so they  went on begging coal from port to  port and the fun of it is that all the  jiorts were British. Gibraltar, Matta,  Suez, Aden, Co.liitnbo, Singapore,  Hongkong, and all the coal was British  coal. If .our government is not equally generous in future the sbips will,  never be able to get back to Germany  at all.
