Alderman Fletcher nud the  mayor had a little difference of opinion  but no serious breach occurred.  The offer of the Tribune Publishing  Co. to do tlie city printing for the cur  rent yeav at 5 cents per nonpi ra" lino  for fust insertion and 2 cents for subsequent insertions, was accepted without  discussion or suggestion that other tenders he called for.  The city engineer reported that the  cost of opening up the alleyway between  Silica, Josephine nnd Ward streets would  be between ������100 and ������125. The cost of  making lhe streets passable at Ward and  Silica was estimated at Sj.103.3l. .  THU   WATEU   WOHKS,  The engineer reported on the condition of the pipes of the Consumers'  Water Works compauy and submitted  two statements from experts iu the matter. A. S. Bickeiton lepoited Unit  the pipes were in good condition nud  would probably remain so for the next  iiye years uuder ordinary pressure. \Y.  G. Spencer aud W. Ball reported that  they had drilled holes in nearly all the  pipes aud fouud them iu good condition,  although some were rusted but not  scaly.  City Solicitor Elliott submitted a report setting forth thc privileges grauted  lo the Consumers' "Water Works company. Alderman Fletcher favored sending the report back to the solicitor and  insisting upon au opinion as to the rights  of the company. No such action was,  taken.  Alderman Dow was iu favor of dropping the whole matter and ignoring the  company.  Mayor Houston said it rested wholly  with the council. They could put in  new pipe and ignore the company and  lhey would have uo water until the new;  pipes were down. If they, ignored the  ci mi puny there would bo competition and  if they bought the company ont, lhey  would have everything their own way.  Alderman JDow made  a motion to shut  .down  on   the  mailer altogether.     The  motion was uot put.  ��������� Alderman Fletcher moved that- the  ' whole matter be retorted to a special  committee to consist of Aldermen Teetzel, Hillyer and Malone who shall report on Wednesday at 8 p.m.   Carried. -  l'Ulll-IC lMrROVE-.ti-.STS.

A hill for $0-1.33 from  the Nelson Saw-  - mill Co. "was ordered paid. -  A number of accounts for laborers  working ou streets and sidewalks were  ordered paid.  Alderman Fletcher thought all public  -work should be under the direction of the  committee on public works'. The board  ���������' hud authorized tho mayor to have certain  wcrk done and Le thought that, if this  was to continue, it would be useless to  Lave the committee on public works  continued.  The mayor remarked that he bad not  been  authorized to have any work doue.  lie had only beeu authorized to purchase  . material and had gone no further.  ������������������  Alderman Fletcher persisted that the  mayor wps the only oue who made reports  as to  the progress of Ihe work aud'he  thought this should be done by the city  -.. engineer uuder the direction of the board  *-'' of public works.  Mayor Houston very tartly remarked  that he had only looked up the foreman  to find out the amountot the payroll and  if the board would do its duty, it would  do the same thing.  ' - "I only want the matter done on business- principles" remarked Alderman  "  Fletcher. .   .  IIOCTIKB BUSINESS.  A resolution passed, authorizing the  expenditure'of mom for public works by  the public works committee under the  direction of the city engineer.  . A resolution passed authorizing the  actiug treasurer to pliy time checks  signed by the foreman and countersigned  by the mayor or one member of the  fioauce committee.  The mayor's appointment ot Seneca G.  Ketchum and Uobert luce, ns policemen,  ���������was confirmed. The,question of salary  came up but it -was decided to allow it to  remain at SG5.

It was ordered that the sidewalk on  the south side of Baker street from Josephine to " Hall street be relaid and made  12 foot wide, and that the sidewalk on  the north side of Baker street bridge be ���������  made safe. !  The offer ot property owners on the!  south fide of Vernon between Josephine 1  nnd Hull streets to pay for lumber for a  twelve foot sidewalk providing the city  lay it, was accepted.  It was ordered that the sidewalk on  tbe south side of Veinon t.trcet opposite  tbe bridge be made safe."  By-law No. 8, regulating the trade  licenses, etc., wus read for the first time.  Second reading set for next meeting.  Vice by-law No. 7 was passed on it8  third and iiual reading. Alderman Teetzel gave notice of u motion to reconsider.  THU SQUATTERS' lUGHTS.  Mayor Houston culled attention to the  passage of the act by .he legislature  against squatters and said that if it was  allowed to stand il would work a hardship to many. Messrs. Honeyman, who  were about lo establish machine shops  liud been warned off the ground upon  whieh they proposed to build. A represent ativo of the firm was now in the city  to see what ,the outcome of the whole  matter would he. Continuing, he said  there were many valuable improvements  ou governmeut land, and it would be u  great injustice lo force squatters to  vacate. Gray's sawmill was ou goveri>-  ment land and under the Act the mill  would have to be removed. He believed  the whole matter was instigated by  county cflicials in Nelson and he thought  that one foundry was worth all the  county officials put together. Forty  lots of the best land hnd been fenced in  wiih a single rail fence and be came  pretty near to knowing who did it.  "Who was it?" was asked.  "I do not want to meu tion the name,  but I come pretty close to knowing" said  the mayor. He snid the whole matter  wns aimed at Messrs. Honeyman, aud  urged that a strong protest be forwarded  to Victoria.  It was decided to take this action aud  a resolution passed directiug that, the  mayor or-Alderman Fletcher, on behalf  of the city council, wire the provincial  government, urpiug that action be postponed uutil a remonstrance ou their behalf could bo presented.

Bigelow,--president of tlie Hook  aud Ladder Co., iccommeuding the purchase of a chemical aud fire engine at  once and also recommending that the  lire hose, which is in bad condition, be  replaced.  Alderman Malone stated that tbe hose  was not in very hud condition, and suggested that when new hose be purchased,  tliat it be of the standard size.

ALDEEMEN   RESENT  THE OFPiCI-  OUSNESS   OF  THE MAY0E-  A lliijorlfy of Tliem Present Administer a  Severe Hebuhe���������Chairman Fletcher  HcsiKii* In l'oiisci|iieiiec.  At the meeting of the city council last  Wednesday night there was a slight collision between Mayor Houston aud  Alderman Fletcher but lo serious results followed.  Before the minutes of the previous  meeting- had been approved, Mayor  Houston said that he would veto the  resolution passed at the previous meeting which provided that the committee  on public works should expend money  for public improvements under the direction of th������ city engineer. The mayor  took the ground that it was usurping a  power granted to him by subsection C, of  section 11, of the muuicipal clauses act.  Under this clause he maintained that all  public works was to be under the direction of the mayor.  Alderman Fletcher objected and said  that the ordinary procedure in other  council boards was to have all public  works doue under the direction of the  board of public works. If not, what was  the committee for? They had a paid engineer to loolj utter these matters for it  was out of the question for the members  of the committee to spent their time  lookiug after them.  IIILLYEK SUl'l'OKTS riiETCITEK.  "I do cot intend to spend all my time  hunting up public works matters. I  think the city engineer should look after  such matters." said Alderman Hillyer.  "I have never seen any city council  where the mayor did it all," said Alderman Fletcher, "and if it is to be so heie  I do not care,to serve as alderman ami  am willing to step dowu and out tomorrow."  "You can override my veto if you  wish," said the mayor.  "I think tbe matter should be referred  to the city solicitor," remarked Alderman  Teetzel.  The mayor thought the matter could  be settled at onco and said that he was  only claiming a right given him by the  Municipal Clauses Act.  "I don't see where the resolution c inflicts with your authority." said Alderman Fletcher. ...  "It is in conflict with my power," said  the mayor. "It is the duty of the council to uphold me or otherwise. It takes  a majority of the council to override" my  veto. If you wish to0do so, that settles  it." ������  "I am willing to do what is right,"  said Alderman ��������� Fletcher. "If the mayor  will say aud prove that I am iu the  wrong, I am willing to withdraw my objection-but I say that it is the ordinary  procedure iu any city council. I am just  as' willing to be out aud am willing lo  step down tomorrow. ' If the mayor has  sole authority iu the matter I say the  committee is of no earthly use." .  "The duty of the committee," said  Mayor Houston, "is to examine propos'-  tious aud report them to the council.  -Do-you-suppose--it-correct- to-give- the  direction of oflice to a man whom I can  fire auy moment. All those iu favor of  sustaining the' veto of the mayor will  raise their hands."  No hands were raised...  "All opposed," said the mayor. ������  The hands of Hillyer, Malone aud  Fletcher were elevated, . Alderman  Teetzel not voting. aldermen Gilker  aud Dow were absent.  The veto is sustained," said the mayor.  FLETCHER RESIGNS.  "I want to hand in my resignation as  chairman of the boaid of public works,"  said Alderman Fieteher.i  "That's all i.ght,"'remarked the chair.  "Are we supposed to go around and  superintend these things?'* asked Alderman Hillyer.  Auother member remarked that ihe  city might be run into debt if the work  was not supervised by a committee.  "What has the mayor got to do with  it," asked Mr. Houston. "He can only  spend the money that the council authorizes him to spend."  "It's tbe method of expending the  money," remarked Alderman Fletcher.  THE WATEE W0EKS DEAL-  A   Select   ttuiumltlee   Ki-poi-ls   limn   Hi.  Advisability ol' rnieliiisini;.  .The city council at its meetiug Wednesday night decided to -purchase the  plant of the Consumers' Water Works  Co. for .$5,000, The resolution authorizing the purchase read as follows:  Resolved:���������That the proposition of  the Consumers' Water Works company  for the purchase of their plant and franchise be accepted and when a legal trans-'  fer is made from the company to the city  that au order signed by the mayor and  city clerk be drawn on the city treasurer  and that a check for the' amount be  issued therefor signed by the mayor and  tbe city treasurer.  The report of the committee appointed  to examine the plant was as follows:  To  the mayor and board of aldermen.  Your select committee appointed to  enquire into the advisibility of the city-  purchasing the system of the Consumers'  Water Works company, beg to report as  follows: We Und that the said com puny  owns 120 house connections which we  value at S10 each; 5970 feet of two, three  and four inch pipe, which we have valued  at the low figure of 20 cents per foot;  24 t's at 15 .cents each and eight valves  at SI each. The revenue tbat the city  should derive from May 1 until such  time as "a new system could be put in,  vour committe has no hesitation iu placing at 81,500. The total of whicli  amounts to $4,2S6.    After taking into  consideration the seriousness of the  situatiou, should the present company  decide to discontinue its system, leaving  the city throughout the hot summer  months without water for either fire protection er domestic or other purposes  mid the small sum of money involved  after deducting the assets of the company, that your committe has no hesitation in reccom men ding the acceptance  by thc- city of the offer made by the  Consumers' . Water Works Compauy,  namely ������5000 from May 1.  A Xe.v Ocean Liner.  Messrs. Ismay. Irnrie ._ Co. have authorized Messrs. Harlund & Wolff, who  have built all the White Star steamers to  build for the Liverpool and New Yoik  Forvice a twin screw mail ai.d passenger  steamer, the Oceanic, ou which extreme  speed is again to be subordinated to the  comfort and convenience of passengers  of all classes. Tn her internal arrangements the vessel will be an enlarged reproduction of the Teutonic aud the Majestic, except in so for as improvements  way have suggested the vessels in tlie  size and fittings of the rooms aud which  may be rendered practicable by the increased dimensions ol the ship herself.  The new boat will be 704 feet in length  or 25 feet longer than the Great Eastern,  hitherto the largest vessel ever built and  G5 feet longer thau any vessel now afloat  or in process of construction. She will  probably be launched next January.  A RAGE TO BOUNDARY  HETKZE AND 00EBIN VIEING WITH  EACH 0THEE.  The l.ntier's  System    lo   lie  Consolidated  I'mler one Company mid  ..lorluaued.  INDIGNANT   SQUATTERS.  They Hold a Meeting and Emphatically  Protest Against an Unsympathetic GoYerimu'ut.  A meetiug of squatters was held in the  oilice cf Gray's sawmill last Thursday  uight which was attended by about 100  squatters. Mr. H. li. Bellamy was  elected as chairman of the meetiug and a  general discussion took place in regard  what was termed the arbitrary action of  the government. It was decided to  appoint a committee of three with  authority to employ a solicitor to take  the matter into the courts if necessary.  *\Icssr_. W. F. Traves, J. M. Carroll and  II. 11. Bellamy were selected to act ou  the committee and were instructed to  wait upou the city council and work with  them.  , It was decided that the committer,  after having secured legal advice, should  get up two petitions to the government;  ,one tor tlio signature of-squatters and  tho other for the signature of business  men. A vote of thanks was voted to the  city council' for the hearty manner in  which that body had taken up the mutter  'in behalf of the squatters and to the  newspapers for their friendship in the  past. The consensus of opinion at the  meeting was that-the squatters would do  all in their power to fairly advance their  interests ouly asking for "British fair  play" from the governmeut. It was  decided to hold another meeting atthe  same place next Wednesday evening.  At the meeting of the city council last  Weduesday evening, the following telegram from Premier Turner, was read,-in  reply to the one seut by the mayor last  Monday:  Victoria, May. 10.���������John Houston,  -N.el_s.on,Jl!_-C-zThe.governmout will be81_  protect the interests of tlio people by  clearing title to the lots illegally occupied aud steps will he takeu accordingly  previous' to the sale of lots by public  auction. "J. n. Turner.  Atter some discussion the following  resolution was-unanimously passed by  the council:  Resolved, that a reply, be sent to the  Premier stating "that the council of the  City of Nelsou voice the opinion of the  people of south Kootenny in saying that  in view ot the past action of the government in recognizing; squatters in every  case, that thoir present action in unjust  and uncalled for when"' it is taken into  consideration, that market value-can be  obtained for the property in dispute.  1   W0EKING- SATISPA0T0KILY.  A gentleman who enjoys the confidence of I). G. Corbin, and who was in  Nelson a few days since, is the authority for the statement that the Corbin  system of railways will be extended to  the heart of the Boundary creek district nt tlio curliest possible date.  The present season is liable to witness a most exciting nice between  Corbin and August Heinze as to which  shall ho first to build a railway into  the Kettle river country.  Mr. Heinze has obtained important  assistance from the Provincial government in tbe matter of subsidies and is  supposed to be on thc friendliest terms  with the Canadian Pacific Railway  company. However, President Corbin of the Spokano Falls and Northern appears to have arrived at tho  conclusion that the great resources of  the Boundary creek country would  prove highly prolitable to him should  ho be able to monopolize the. transportation business of this district..  The Corbin system at present consists of tho Nelson <fc Fort Sheppard,  the Spokane Falls it'Northorn and the  Red Mountain railways. Each line is  owned by a separate corporation, although i\lr. Corbin is tlio controlling  factor in all'three.  The Miner's informant declares lhat  arrangements are now being made by  which these three lines will be consolidated under one company, and the entire  property will be covered by a blanket  mortgage. The- mouey thus obtained  will be used iu constructing tbe Boundary  croek extension. It is exnecled that New  York financiers will he induced to furnish  the money so that the work of gradiug  will be commenced this summer.  The proposed extension will run from  Northport, up Sheep creek, thence iuto  tho Kettle river valley at the southern  end of Christina lake aud so westward  to .Grand Forks. Mr. Corbin's engineers  claim that this is the shortest and most  feasible route to the Boundary creek  district.:  Engineers of the Columbia & Western  railway have completed their survey for a  railway extending from ri point opposite  Robson on the Columbia ,. river. The  route, after following the banks of the  Columbia for a shortdistaucc northward,  turns to the west and by a circuitous  route winds through the gold range to  the southern end of Christina lake. From  theace to GraudForks, lhe Heinze road  will follow the same course as theCorbin  line.  The interesting question is: which  railway will be first lo reach the Kettle  river valley-' While President Corbin's  route is iho shortest ho has not yet,  raised the necessary funds with  which to build his extension. On.tho  other hand, Mr. Heinze has the benefit  of fat subsidies from the Provincial  government and i.s said to have all  financial arrangements completed.  NAKUSP   A   SUB-POET.  The   S'nr    rm-iiuces   ol'   I lio   Hall   .lline-  ��������� Smeller sire a Success.  The new refining reverberntory fur-'  uace of the Hall Mines smelter was regularly charged for the first time last Sunday and has been working ever since  without a hitch of nny kind. Tlie white  metal produced is_.7."i per ce^it. copper  and will probably be tieated again for a  stiHiintT grade. The metal will be shipped to Bridgeport or some other eastern  city for .final treatment. There is-a  very large amouut of matte on hand  which .will keep both the calcining and  refining furnaces busy for some time to  come.  The blast furnace has been thoroughly  overhauled aud rebiicked and will be  blown iu tomorrow.-- A littlo.il.elay was  caused by the noti-airival of plates from  Spokane to cover the flume in front of  the furnace. Tlie new 200-ton blast furnace is rapidly uearing completion aud  will probably be ready for work as soon  asarrangements cau be made for custom  ore to supply it.  * HORSES DE0WNED.  A Customs Ollire lo |te   Kslablislied Tliere  .Next   -Veeii.  Nakusp, on June 1, will become an out  port of entry iiudcr the survey of Collector Johnstone of Nelson. 'All customs  showing oro shipments will therefore be  of lucord in the Nelson office aflor that  date. In the past the record of shipments through Nukusp and Ruvelstolse  havo gone to New Westminster. Under  the new order of tilings the ore shipments from the entiie district can be  checked up weekly. The name of the  new collector has not yet been made  known.  Tlie t Hv II.iimI.  The Nelson city bund, 0 consisting of  more than a dozen musicians, has been  religiously practicing every day for the  past two weeks and has arrived at a stage  of proficiency highly '.creditable.

On Saturday morningDcwesexperienced  greater pain, and passed nway at 5 p. ni.  A post mortem examination revealed the  fact that the skull had beon fruclured at  the base of the brain.  A second monitor which was on the  bauk and supposed to be out of the way,  was caught hy the slide and wrecked in  the bottom of the creek. New monitors  and pipe have been wired for. o  Major Mauley'* I'.ille)'.  A gentleman recently arrived from  Grand Forks states" . that Mayor  Mauley has defined a very simple  policy regarding tbe improvements  that are to be made by the new citv  of the Boundary creek district. OJ  the $20,000 that "Grand Forks is empowered to borrow, $10,000 will be  used in constructing un excellent  water supply system. The balance of  the sum will he econimically expended  in establishing street grade's and side  walks. Mayor Mauley being-somewhat of a civil engineer will superintend all public works personally and  prepare all necessary plans.  Toad Mountain Development.  The Primrose Mining Company has  let a contract for 100 feet on its property on Toad mountain. The work  of development is to be pushed steadily  forward until the mine is added to the  list of shippers. Recent assays give, a  result of SiST in gold silver and copper;  iji20 of which is in copper alone.  K\rur-loii Tlrkels.'

The government of tin; Dominion is  controlled by the Liberals, and by tho  victory in Quebec the. adiiiiiiislral.ions  in all the provinces, with two exceptions, puss under thc direction of tho  Liberal party. liven the exceptions  can scarcely be considered as such. In  New Brunswick the premier is 11 Conservative, but be succeeded Mr. Blair;  two members of his cabinet are Liberals and the traditions of policy arc  entirely liberal. In British Columbia  all thu members of tho administration  are Conservalivesin Dominion politics,  but, as is well known, the members <>'  the legislature, are not divided on  party lines. The Territories do not, as  yet enjoy provincial powers, but tlie  fact that the executive council is not  wholly one party puts it in thc same  catigory a.s Now Brunswick.  In this Province, Liberal principals  are growing in popularity, and there  is good reason to belie\ e that tho successes achieved by that party in the  eastern provinces will shortly be repeated in British Columbia. The public aro beginning to realize that unless  party linos ore drawn there is little  likelihood of obtaining a capable and  honest govern incut. The existing  administration has lost thc confidence  of the people, and cannot expe.:t to remain in power after the next elections.  Tho thorough organization of the  Liberal party in British Columbia  means death to "liiossbackism."  and tho everlasting defeat of the Victoria ringsters.  SUCCESSES    OE   THE  LIBERAL    PARTY.  The Conservative administration in  the Province of. Quebec has been defeated by an overwhelming majority.  The new legislative assembly consists  of 53 Liberals, 10 Conservatives, and  one Independent���������a majority of S3  Liberals over all..  Dircctiy and indirectly^ four issues  were raised:���������(I) Financial reform; (2)  improvement ofthe educational system  of Quebec; (3) the Manitoba school  settlement, and (4) the general question of freedom of elections as against  clerical domination.  The Conservatives had been losing  ground steadily for some time previous to the elections. - They were responsible i'or a financial policy that  had become particularly unpopular.  ���������On assuming-control of the affairs of  Quebec, the late government found a  debt of $25,175,320, and increased it to  $31,211,282, "while an, issue of more  than a million of bonds brought the  the total increase up to more than $",-  0tX),000. Its annual expenditures  averaged'more than $1,000,000, or  $333,000 more than the average of the  Mercier regime. * It paid in five yoars  -rail \vay-.isiibsidies-of_$5,2()8, S.20,-_while-  only -HO miles' of railway were built.  One of its loans was lloated at a heavy  loss to the Province, and was so badly  managed that the treasurer,"Mr. Hall,  who had heen overruled in the matter,  resigned, and the Montreal Star loudly  condemned the government for 111-  oompelenee aiid -neglect of duty. On  tbe eve of the election itmadeaiTangc-  montS; for guaranteeing the bonds of  the^ Atlantic <__: Superior railway for  ..1*8,200,000 on terms which.could hardly  prove anything' but disastrous to the  Province, and perhaps to the Dominion.0  The now premier, .Mr. Marehand, in  assuming office, has an opportunity to  establish-a record for himself and his  party, and there arc reasons to believe that ho will do so. lie is pledged  to educational reform. The educational standard of Quebec-is far below  -that of tho other provinces, many ol*  the teachers are wretchedly . paid,  and the whole system' suffers heavily  from the neglect. The new government can do much to strengthen the  position of broad-minded men in the  Council of Education in their efforts  to give the; children of Quebec a good  secular education. The. church has  had the matter so largely in its own  hands that it must accept responsibility for the defects of the system,  and will act the part, of wisdom if it  co-operatesJwith those who are endeavoring to remedy those defects.  The people of Quebec have shown by  by their votes that they are more intent upon reforming tlieir own systclin  than upon restoring the old system in  Manitoba. "The Manitoba question  : was dragged . into the contest, and an  attempt was made to obtain a verdict  which would mean a condemnation of  the settlement, affected by the governments of the Dominion and of Manitoba, that attempt has signally  failed, and for a second time the electors of Quebec have shown in the  clearest way that they propose to use  their own judgment in political matters. The day of clerical domination  in politics, if not at an end. is rapidly.,  drawing to its close. The conditions  create new responsibilities for statcs-  TIIE U. S. TARIFF.  The turilf bill now being framed by  thc congress of the. United .States is  making slow progress, and has been  subjected to much revision since first  introduced., As usual, these changes  do not seen to have beeminade on any  principle or with any method, except  where the interests of a few influential  manufacturers in the eastern states  are at stake.  In the metal schedule, tho duties on  lead have boen readjusted, lead in ores  being placed at \k cents per pound,  against 1 cent in the original bill;  while pig lead and base bullion are  taxed 2 cents por pound, and lead in  pipes, sheets and otlier manufactured  forms at 2*. cents. The duty on nickel  remains at 0 cents; while the one cent  per pound on copper is dropped.  ! So far tho bill does not threaten to  operate harmfully against the product  of Canadian mines. The increased  duties on lead ores will operate to a  great extent against, the exportation  of the product of the galena mines of  Kootenay, but it is satisfactory' to  know that the new tariif of our neighbors to thc south will hasten the establishment of reduction, works on  this side of thc international boundary'  l;ne.  Tho time is not far distant when  Canada will be an important rival of  the United States in the sale of refined  silver and lead.  than passing notice. It signifies that  the leading Liberal newspaper of Canada, the mouthpiece of the Ottawa  government, stands ready to endorse  Mr. Templciiian as the successor of  Lieutenant-Governor Dewdney,.whose  term of office will shortly expire, or,  if not that, for the British Columbia  senatorship that, would become vacant in thc event a deal is made in  Ottawa by which Senator Mclnnes  would be selected as lieutenant-  governor,  The utterances of the Globe will be  hcartly appreciated by a very large  majority of Liberals in this Province.  Those having the interest of the coun-  liy and the party at heart will experience it feeling of great relief to know  that there is no truth in the rumor  that Premier Laurier is pledged to the  support of .Mr. .1. C. McLagan, the  editor of tho Vancouver "World, who  has been planning to succeed Senator  Mclnnes in the Upper Chamber of  thc Ottawa parliament. The editor of  the World deserves no recognition by  tho loaders of tho. Liberal party so  long as he allows his paper to bo a  servile supporter of the Conservative  ringsters who now control the affairs  of British Columbia.  Led by Alderman Fletcher, three-  fourths of the aldermen present at the  Wednesday evening session of the city  council administered a severe rebuke  to Mayor Houston. The point raised  by Mr. Fletcher was that the committee on public works should, with the  advice of the city engineer, say how  the. money foi' public works should be  expended. It i.s quite unnecessary  that the mayor should assume so much  authority in this as well as other matters a'fecting the interests of the city.  The members of the board of aldermen  are fully as competent as Mayor  I louslon Lo decide where and by  what methods the public improvements shnll be made.  NEW   MININ-1  COMPANIES.  THE      LICENSING      BOARD.  The Provincial authorities at Victoria are neglecting tlieir duty iii regard to the appointment of two members of the licensing board of this city,  and thc community is thereby much  inconvenienced. The board should  consist of the mayor, the city police  magistrate and a third member. Thc  last two should bo-named by tho government within six weeks after the  city election.. Thc time will expire next  Tliursday. In the meantime the city  officials aro powerless to issue or  authorize the transfer of licenses. The  conduct of the "government -in this  matter is inexcusable. The city council ha1* suggested P. K. Wilson as police  magistrate -and, as-np valid objection  can be raised against his appointment,  it is the duty of the government to  nominate'-him without, delay. Every  member of the Kxoeulive Council is  intimately acquainted with at least a  dozen reputable citizens,- any one of  whom is cligable to act as tlie third  member of the licensing board. Both  appointments should have been made  a 111011th ago. -    -  A Itecoi .1 nl' liicoi'ititratinn lYoni the Itrit-  isli .'oliiiuliia ..iii/.rllc.  Argentine Gold Mining Co., Ld. (For.)

Superintendent.  Now First Published.���������Al  Rights Reserved. '  ���������"-   ' 1  Pretty girls   with   good   fortunes   and  susceptible   temperaments   need   careful j  guardianship in smarfcliotels'where society ,  is mixed und credentials are not.always!  forthcoming.     Harpies   of    both   .sexes  abound; and more than one good bag lias '  beeu made for the benefit of the fowler ,  and tins ruin of the victim���������always under '  cover of fine manners and high-sounding  names.    This being  so, it  was  a  little !  doubtful if Mrs. Brand was the right kind !  ot guardian'for Ida Maynard.   A. ladylike '  woman, who had less  self-respect  than  complaisance, and whose capacity for belief was aslarge as her power of discrimination was small,  had a burden of responsibility rather heavier than she could  bear in the charge of a pretty young person  of romantic tendencies and a handsome  income.   And more than one of Ida's old  family friends lamented the chain ot circumstances which had   driven  her   into  Mrs. Brand's nerveless hands as the sole  guardianship slie had.   So far, however,  no harm had come to the young heiress  with a chaperon who never thwarted her,  ___ib also who never icnew when the ice  was thin or when thero -were rocks ahead.  The hotel was crowded, and the company  was of the gayest. Butterflies sporting  with ono another among the llowers best  expressed their general condition, and,  because the place was so overflowing and  the salle-a-inanger had not space for universal segregation, the small tables usually given up to two or three'were perforce  tenanted by five or six. "Whence resulted  intimacies which were sometimes dangerous eveu when uiosfc delightful.  The hotel was crowded, aud there was  not space for segregration in the salle-a-  nianger. Owing then to this congestion  the maitre d'hotel, with bows and apologies, begged to be allowed to place three  charming people at the table ofthe young  heiress aud her chaperon. They were all  that he had of most comme il faut ou his  list; and he was sure that in asking this  accommodation he was doing nothing that  would be displeasing to madame or mademoiselle.  That evening, then, at dinner, three  strangers were at Ida's table, and the  ,mental stock-taking began.  Imprimis, a tall, handsome Englishman  about thirty-two or three, with line features, 11 good carriage, good manners if  somewhat overbearing, and the unmistakable look of one who has seen service of  some sort. Secondly, a soft-voiced young  Italian, with the caressing eyes and soft  And wlie'n Fie s;;;d this liis yclvet-brown  eyes would look into Ida's with'something  behind and within which made that erstwhile frank and half-unconscious young  woman drop hers tothe floor, overpowered  by she knew not what. All that she did  know was���������it was something pleasant,  yet something that made her feel part  afraid and part ashamed, and especially  desirous that Gerald -.Frobislicr should not  see.  The day was glorious. A day when  youthful spirits were not to be confined  within the four walls of a house, nor yet-  between the hedges of 11 hotel garden. It  was 11 day for amusements, expeditions,  adventures, what nor, One of the kind  which holds the promise of some undeclared joy like the secret perfume lying  within the closed bud of the lily; oue of  those when Prince Charming is on his  way, and the princess is setting forth iu  her golden chariot to meet him���������when the  the young feel and the old remember, and  the joy of living lias no flaw from either  regret or despair.  "This is the right day for the old  Schloss," said Gerald Frobisher at breakfast.  Bespoke with the manner of command  rather thau suggestion���������ordaining for the  others according to his owu ideas of fitness, without reference to tlieir wishes.  "Just!" said Mrs. Brand, complaisant as  usual.  "It would be rather jolly," said Ida, not  caring to agree too enthusiastically, but  secretly charmed with the idea. "What  do you say, princess?" she 'added, turning  to the Italian as if it were a forgone con-  . elusion that those two, who were her table  companions, should also be theircomrades  in the day's pleasures.  ��������� Gerald's keen eyes flashed impatiently;-and his stern mouth hardened to a  line.  'Tive is an impossible number," he said,  as if to himself, but everyone heard,though  no one took up the challenge.  "It will be lovely," said the princess,  smiling iu Jjer sweet way. Her eyes and  her smile took in the whole company.  "Giulio bad already suggested this little  journey to- mc. ,.I am glad that Mr.  Frobisher has fallen in with the idea so  amiably."  "Pardon me, I have fallen in with nc  idea from the baron "or anyone' else," said  Gerald, ill-tcmpercdly. "I was not aware  that the barou had any ideas���������on the subject," he added, as a rider to the original  proposition, and when he he thought the  sarcasm had had time to strike.  The young man laughed and showed his  small, white, pointed teeth, like a row ol  little shark's teeth gleaming beneath his  silken mustache.  :  "Ah! my-friend!" he. said, gayly. "A  life spent in shooting rhinoceroses aud  bears is not the best school for the knowledge of mankind. *We who live in cities  have the advantage' over you men of sport  aud tho chase. "Wo have humanity as our  books. - You study only the habits of bears  Tiim'i-: sTn.\xtiKi:.s "\vkisk at iua's taiii.k.  seductive ways of his country; accompanied by,--thirdly, his , mother, a typical  soiUh^uy'^graceful^iiiiU^lcj^jwtute and  fascinating. The Knglishnian was Gerald"  frobisher; the Italian was II Barone di  Siena; his mother was ia Principcs sa di  Certosaria. ������They were all noticeable-be-  cause of manner,.dress and general appointments; and soon this special table became the cynosure of the room", as rumor  magnified the fortune of the young heiress  and the social standing of her company.  In the sweetest ointments lurks at times  that intrusive (ly. - Through the most  harmonious combination' of circumstance.'*  strikes the jarring note of unpleasant friction. And this little coterie, formed by  chance, was no exception to the rule. The  jarring note came from the F.ngiishman.'  From the first he seemed to have translated his condition as a compatriot into the  privileges of a friend aiid the duties of a  guardian!- He drew an invisible 'lint' ol  possession round-Itlii and Mrs. Brand and  before they well knew that he had east his  shoe over them he was the master of the  situation. He made no over-demomt ration of authority/such as the world could  see and comment on, Be simply gave  them to understand that they must not do  such and such thing-;, and that it would  be better for them���������indeed ir, was imperative���������that they should  follow his advice.  As his strong will coerced Mrs. Brand's  weaker mind he had things on the whole  pretty much his own. way, whicli was not  always Ida's. . Yet somehow, willing or  unwilling, she had to go as Gerald Frobisher ordained, and bit by bit slie felt het  liberty slipping from her without ever  coming to the moment when she could  make a stand and say: "I will not."  Ou the other hand, the Vouug baron and  his mother, the princess, were the very  heart and soul of complaisance. They  seemed to live simply for. Ida's pleasure.  They had not a wish which was not la  sigiiorina's���������not a thought extra to her  service. "Whatever they might propose  had but one object���������the pleasure or convenience of la Mgiioriiia, for whom, had  tbey the power, tlio very elements' would  l,e ruled to render service and tribute. Always suave and ai mable, they made'a do'  bided contrast with Gerald l-'robi.-her, who  wa.-. generally the verv reverse of amiable,  certain subacidity of accent, that wik 'ess i  reassuring than threatening���������les^ etitieiiig 1  than compelling.

"We   have   to deal with  slaves aud thieves, cowards and adventurers of all kinds. Wa learn tlieir ways  pretty accurately, I assure you."  "No doubt.," said the baron, retreating  in good order, but adding, as his last shot:  "This,.however, proves my -point. ��������� These  slaves and cowards, etc, do not make up  the genera] society1 of ordinary European  drawing-rooms. Hence yoiiinustallow us  stay-at-home citizens to have some ad-  vantugus���������aud-among���������theiri^j'oir^inusr  grant us the knowledge of our own world  of gentlehood' and the best traditions of  good breeding and social diplomacy."  "What time shall we start:'" said Ida, to  create a diversion. "_���������  These dangerous ' fencings -and bitter  double-meanings were always going on  between the two men���������a'duel as- yet with  the foils only; (but the young heiress was  beginning 1.6 fear a more serious collision,  as the animosity between them was dail ;  growing more apparent and more extreme).  Bow long it would continue restrained  within the due boundaries of courtesy remained to be seen. A.s things were il  continually looked as if it would break  loose like a lloodand carry devastation and  destructioninto the little .settlement they  had formed among themselves.  Gerald looked at his watch.  "Be ready in half an hour," lie said,  shortly.  ' "That will hea little too quick foi me,  Mr. Frobisher," said the princess; again  smiling as if llie very soul of sweetness  were lodged iu her handsome body. If they  could have read her heart and .thoughts!  "I am not so energetic as you Kngli.-,h. 1  want a margin for deliberation."  "It your margin throws "us too late we  can not go at-all," said Gerald, unpleasantly. "  "We. must    not     inconvenience'    my  mother," said the baron, with a fine air ol  filial duty aud conventional courtesy.  "Of course not," said Ida. .  ���������Whereupon'the   voting  Italian  leaned i  over to the pretty girl, anil said:   "Thank j  you, signorina!"   with   elVtision,   holding!  out his hand as one under the influence of j  strong emotion. .Looking  into the flush-I  ing face ot the girl with a world of render j  meaning in his eyes,  he said, speaking to j  his mother, but .-till lookin;; at Ida:    "Thy i  signoritia always does and ������ays exactly the ;  right thing at" the right   moment antl in";  thc right wav.  Is it not so, my mother?"':  ���������'Assuredly!   She is  a  saint:" said the  printe.-s. -   ��������� ���������    -     j  Gerald rose abruptly, from the table.

"Are all English gentlemen like that?*'  queried the princess. "And yet���������correcting herself���������"iiow foolish to ask such 1  question, when I know so much better!  Who, indeed, knows so well as I the charm  of the English character? Was not my  own dear mother an Englishwoman?"  "They are adorable," said the baron,  with fervor. "Who that knows them  would not love them?���������for the sake of  one!" ho added, in a low voice, those  velve'.y eyes looking into Ida's with the .  love and softness, the passion and the  prayer he knew so well how to throw into  them���������"for the sake of one, loving all!"  "Bad we not better go and get ready?"  said Mrs. Brand, with the fear of Gerald  Frobisher before her eyes.  "Yes, let us go," said Ida, in a half-  relieved, half-embarrassed kind of way.  And again mother and son exchanged  glances, antl thc smile that just lifted tho  corner of each well-shaped but over-ileshy  mouth meant "Good so far." "Winged if  not yet bagged" would have been an  English man's formula.  The morning had passed into the early  afternoon without untoward accident of  any kind���������unless Gerald Frobisher's temper might be called untoward: Never remarkable for amiability, to-day it' was of  the vilest kind to be found. His rough  life and adventurous experiences seemed  to have hardened him to so much granite  ���������granite abraded at all four corners and  full of jagged edges antl wounding spikes.  It served, however, to bring out into  greater'1 relief the sweet courtesies and  graceful plasticities of the baron, whose  whole energies seemed devoted to the one  desire to please and entertain the signorina, to do as she desired���������to anticipate her  unspoken wishes antl make her feel tliat .  she was the main object of his thoughts  and the���������as yet undeclared���������mistress of  his heart and life. His gentleness, his unfailing good humor, the skill with which  he parried Gerald's rougher onslaughts���������  but in the parrying inflaming the Englishman's anger still more, thus putting him  for ever more and more in the wrong���������his  caressing eyes and musical voico, his subtle tenderness, all stole over Ida as some  irresistible charm, some powerful spell  spoken by a potent magician. For one of  the few times iu her young life she contemplated her wealth with a glow of pride  and delight, and rejoiced tliat she was  free, rich and the mistress of her own  destiny. ' ..  All this Gerald saw and understood.  Antl the feelings whicli this knowledge  roused in him were akin to those with  which he had tlefied a savage chief at the  head of his .tribe, stalked a rogue elephant,  circumvented a man-eating tiger, fought  single-handed with a cobra, or looked for  whipsnakes in the grass that ho might  crush them before they had power to sting.  In the barou he recognized his enemy,  whom yet he despised; antl forthwith set  himself to destroy him with the same  feelings if not by the same methods as  those with which he had destroyed those  others in the jungles and the wilds.  Tho object of .the expedition .bad. been  accomplished. They had seen the Schlo.-.s  and heard t.he legends; peered into the  dungeons and admired the view from the  bittlements; eaten tlieir luncheon spread .  on the trestled table of the courtyard;  t ilked platitude with an air of profundity;  skirted by intense feelings with au air of  indifference; and done all that people in  these circumstances are wont to do. And  now it was time to return. Ida always  between the'two men who were battling  together I'or her possession with as much  fierceness, and to the same purpose, as if-  they had. been lighting with clash of steel,  not mere fire of words. Fortune hunters  both of. them: they were the Scylla iiml  Charybdis of the girl's perilous voyage.  Into whose hands soever she might fall  she would fall to her enduring sorrow.  CHAPTER II. * '  They were not adventurers of the vuli.nr  type���������that is. adventurers iu the sense of  holding a different social position from  that, which they assumed.* They were  gentlemen of gootl family, but fortune  hunters to whom the income was of more  account than the woman, and who made  pretense of a love they tlitl not feel: For  Gerald's somewhat brutal attitude of command was love-making in his way���������a way  analogous to that of the savage whoTirst  knocks- h is-in tended���������wi fe-seuseiess-und-  then carries her oil" to his own hut in the  bush���������his conquest, lover, wife and victim  all in one.

In Giulio  di Siena she would have infidelity, intrigue." jealousy, and -what to it 11 Englishwoman, accustomed to much open-air exercise antl absolute freedom of movement  would be practically incarceration. In  the princess she would have a mother-in-  law who would rule her wiih a rod of iron,  and never take her to her heart as a  daughter���������who, would persecute her tt)  become a Catholic; who would ridicule her  English ways and tit-cry. her nationality  who would make-up for her husband's  neglect by a  system   of  espionage which  in-: i:i-;vi-:s(_ki_. ihmsklf hy tiiinino i: .    ������  would not leave her one.shred of spontaneous' freedom, and who in all of whose  persecutions here, -and glacial barriei.s  there, would tie joined by her. married  daughter, La.Contessa Maria del Sole (who  would repeat ami exaggerate all that her  mother might say and do). Of the two  the balance of unhappiness would iv ou  the side of the Italian, but neither man  would treat her well, and in a marrL.so  with each alike would be hc-rmisery.  The two u-pirauts had nearly come to  that duel, with the .buttons btT, whicli  seemed as if it must eventually take place,  over the fifth scat in the carriage, whicli  meant who should sit outside witb thu .  coachman*. The friction had been so great,  and Hie courtesy disguise so thin, that the  princess had isalf-laughingly proposed  drawing lots for the chance.

Slocau City, May 23.���������(Special.)���������The  exodus to tbe ruouutaius bas already begun, notwithstanding all reports indicating tbat the snow is still deep a few  miles (rom tbe valley. Tbe idea appears  to be that some work cau be done where  the snow has disappeared and as the  prospectors cau live a3 cheaply in the  mountains as in town, they cau, by goiug out now, work to some advantage  und be on tbe ground. Besides this advantage, many of the meu going out  Lave become softened during the past  winter, and they want to work gradually  from lower to higher elevations. lhe;e  is no doubt that the eutiie area lying between Kootenay and'Sloe iu lakes and  Nelson and Sandon will ba thoroughly  gone over and it will not surprise anyone  if valuable discoveries are made, discoveries tbat will compare favorably  with those ihat have made the Slocon  famous.  IMPORTANT TC) NELSON.  This prospecting season will be of  especial importance to Nelsou. Those  who are developing claims south of the  line of Lemon creek are talking of a road  to Nelson. If this movement is promtly  and systmeatically aided ' by Nelson  people it would be a great step towards  making a part of the district, already explored, and being developed, a valuable  tributary and the unexplored district  would, in the event of rich discoveries,  .would in tbe natural course of things  become tributary, also. Active steps  have already been taken in Slocau City  to secure the construction oE a load up  Springer creek. There certainly will be  a road up Lemon creek soon. These  will, of course, become of very valuable  service only when the Slocau branch  railway is completed, but should no  move be promptly made by Nelson people before this railway aud the roads  mentioned are completed, uot ouly  would powerful influence be exerted to  defeat an appropriation for a road to  Nelson, but, also, the answer could be  justly made that conveniences were already established which could be economically extended.  '' '��������� PROSPECTING CEDAR CREEK.  =_ The creek about eight miles south _of  Lemon creek which is commouly called  Cedar creek is attracting very general  attention among1 prospectors. This is  due to the fact that it is of easy access  and that it has been .only very superficially explored. . The snow now admits  of work for probably six mile3 iuto the  interior, but beyond that meu who have  recently returned from the creek say it  will be all the way. from one to two  months before the high mountains iu tho  interior can be effectively < explored.  While in a geueral way iuterest has beeu  taken in the ^section penetrated by this  water course, greater.iuterest was inspired since that the fact became knowu  that Van De Lashmutt intended sending  a party of experienced prospectors there.  People began then tp direct- their  thoughts to the fact that this unexplored area is developed on three sides,  east, north aud west, and that properties  of extraordinary promise have been discovered. The headwaters of-the south  fork of Kaslo creek-are iu this section,  aud assessment work is uow beiug done  on claims at, that point that indicate  great richness. There seems to be reason in believing that this uuexplored district will prove to be a great field. ...  BUILDING  CONTINUES.  Slocan City is building up as fust as  the 8upplyof lumber will permit. The  supply is now larger . aud more  regular, but it is still inadequate. This  condition of things will be obviated very  soon, as the new steamer oMbe Cauadiau  Pacific will, it is announced, be completed next week.  .   TIIE SLOGAN RIVER ROAD.  Much talk has been excited because of  the delay in active construction woik ou  the Slocan branch railway. The driving  of piles along the water front continues  iu a provokingly deliberate manner, aud  Engineer Perry is here for some purpose;  but absolutely authentic information  about the beginning of grading is not  obtainable. There are a number of explanations given. The Canadian Pacific  route by way.of Arrow lakes and Kobson  renders the Slccan branch during the  summer season important only to Slocan  City, in view of the fact that the miuing  claims have not been developed into  shipping properties and the further fact  that conveniences for transporting ore to  the proposed railway and lake have not  been established. People, say that the  Canadian Pacific is not anxious, to rush  the completion of a road that, from its  standpoint, will not be necessary to its  system until the cold weather obstructs  navigation on the Columbia. It is also  said that the bids received for the construction of the railway are all very high,  too high, considering thi_,t no social  difficulties will be encountered iuthe  grading of the road bed. lieports have  it  that the   Canadian   Pacific   people  threaten to buiid the road by day's wok  unless the bids are very considerably  modified. However, there appears to be  no room fur doubt that the rail way will  be in operation next fall. -  CUTTING  PRICES.  Tbe era of cheiii er pi ices i ��������� this ci'y  has begun. Uutil this weak meals were  fifty cents all over- the town, but now  several restaurants have displayed  tweuty-five cent placards. This reduction is met with very decided opposition  to the uew departuie. New stores of all  kinds are beiug established, and these  Yfill doubtless result in u geueral shaving  of prices.  NEWS  NOTES.  The bank of British North America established a branch here on Tuesday.  A bridge is nearly completed over Slocau river, in aid of the towusite of West  Slocan.  Canadian Pacific agents have ordered  all squatters on its railway right ot way  to move.  Preparations continue for the celebration of. the Queen's Jubilee.

A slightly liridker market is reported  for British Columbiu miuing proposi-  lions but the value of shares lias nnclei-  gone uo startling attention, and probably  those actually interested in the market  are more concerned in perfecting arrangements for the ilotations of new companies, thau making fresh purchases. If  1 havo not a great deal to say this week,  it is because I cannot betray the confidence of those whose plans are not  quite ready tor publicity, but I can as-  Bure your readers that things are moving  and in no uncertain manner. The public are on the qui vive, thongh still chary  in unbuttoning their pockets, but as recent prospectuses have shown, there are  a number of men of capital dotted about  thi3 country, who are privately interesting themselves iu likely ventures connected with yonv province. The late  Peterson shipping project to Cauada is n  case in point; the Adams B. C. compauy  is another. Tbe latter was registered  this week at the Inland Revenue cilice  with a capital of ������1,000,000 in ������1 shares,  and from the particulars I sent you a  fortnight ago, it cau be seen thnt the proposition is a big one. Yesterday I met  Mr. Whitta, of Norfolk, Eng., who is  sufficiently enthusiastic over this project to take 1,000 shares, while auother  gentleman who has been impressed with  Captain Adams' personality, is Mr.  "Wilberforce Bryant, of- 8toke Park,  Bucks, who has also subscribed for COO  shares!- I learu that Viscount Gort has  taken 250 shares. No less than _,<);.('  shares in all have been absorbed by the  signatures to the articles of association.  NEW BEaiSTBATlOSS.  The Iron Mountain Syndicate, limited,  is also notified, the object beiug to obtain an option of purchase of a three-  quarter interest in the Iron-Mountain  mineral claim near "Whitewater, Slocan.  B. C.  I have also obtained some particulars  about the Prospecting Syndicate of B. C.  whose capital is ������U,C00. The manager  is Mr. G. Mam of I.ossland aud the engineer Mr. Leslie Hill. This undertaking is developing 14 claims ou Boundary-  creek. *������ -,,  The Horne-Payncs of the Lilloet, Fraser Kiver company are interested in the  Electric Railway compauy which I mentioned last week.  The Columbian Syndicate has been  formed with a capital of ������3,000, chiefly  iu 10s shares.  The British Columbia Town Properties  Syndicate has a capitalization of ������1,000.  I have heard of another big financial  undertaking which rumor says has' a  capital of -.2,000,000; I expect, however,  that the figure is nearer 8:2,000,000.  I learn, too, that arrangements are  nearly perfected for an important ore reduction company to make its debut.  The foregoing will at least give your  readers a tolerably clear idea of what is  going on in our midst.  ENGLISH MINING MACHINEI-V.  The action oE the Dominion government in removing all tariff restrictions  on British machinery will undoubtedly  cause manufacturers in this country to  give the market thus afforded in British  Columbia their careful attention.

THE  l'UKON IIEIiDS.  , In an article entitled ' ''The Truth  about the Yukon Fields" the British Co-  . lumbia Review has apprised the Euglish  people of the drawbacks existing iu that  direction. It says: "Thc agents of the  Dominion government have disseminated  Inspector Constautiue's report, on the  gold diggiugs iu the Yukon district very  freely, and we regret that every paper  which diew attention to these di^coveties  did uot also give a word of warning as to  their many drawbacks. Placer mining  has great attractions to tlie man with  little capital but.plenty of energy and  enthusiasm; aud reports of this kind are  only too apt to lead them to eiiiliark'on a  -quest for which they are entirely un-  suited. "Gold in Biitish Coluiiibin,"  "A Bush to the Diggings," "'Wonderful  Discoveries"--catchy headlines, but, to  tho uninitiated, most misleading.

Nevertheless the  Duke of Teck and forty bankers and  members of parliament  are  petitioning  'the Dominion  governmeut  for a British  chartered Yukon company.        ������  merchants or   traders,   $2.3 for each six  months.
