It is a subject that demands serious consideration, and we rather imagine  this is the view taken by the majority of the citizens.  Nelson has reached that stage in her history when  great care must be taken to avoid mistakes that might  mar her whole future. From this time onward, our  progress must be gradual and any attempt at1; booming" must.be' checked. It is absolutely essential  that the affairs of the city must he conducted by the  same rules as are applied to other business concerns.  The question with the electors is simply with whom  can thev entrust the affairs of the city for the next  year with the greatest degree of confidence. The  " Economist ��� has before, stated that Aid. Fletcher  possesses qualifications that specially fit him for the  head of the civic administration. As time, has passed,  this paper has become more convinced of its original  ���conviction, and reiterates the hope that Aid. Fletcher  will be the selection of the electors.  The electors have no just grounds to  complain   of  hick   of g:>od  material   for. the Council Board.      Indeed, no great   mistake would  be made   in choosing  any three of the candidates nominated in either ward.  No matter what selection   is made, the etizens   may  feel assured that their interests will not be sacrificed.  In the East Ward   there are Chris.  Morrison, W.   J.  Wilson, J. G. Irving, Dr. Hall and  Hamilton Byers;  and in the West ward the candidates* re W. Irvine, Dr.  Arthur, T. Madden, A. X. McKillop and A. Ferland.  Every one of   those gentlemen is well known, and  the citizens can feel satisfied that their motto will still  be " Nelson first, last and all the time."  There is one feature of the campaign just closing  that is entitled to more than passing mention. We  refer to the good   feeling that is   manifested between  the candidates for mayor. Both Mr. Fletcher and  Mr. Houston have carried on their canvass with regard to the rights of each other as citizens. When  the ballots are counted to-morrow, the vanquished  can take the hand of the victor and confess that it  was a fair fight won on its merits. This is the right  spirit and speaks: volumes for the patriotism and  sound common sense of the candidates. A municipal contest is merely a difference of opinion among  neighbors and should b* free from any exhibition of  bad feeling. When the ballots are counted and the  sentiment of the people manifested in the usual way,  all should settle down to work for the advancement  of Nelson, totally oblivious of the circumstance that a  contest had taken place,  The defeat of the Local Government last weeK on  two motions is only what was anticipated. Constituted as is the Semliti Government, it does not possess  any of those elements requisite to hold together, and  sooner or later must die of inanition. The events  now transpiring at the Capital may hasten that end,  but iu any event it is doomed.     .  Hon. Thomas Green way has resigned, and Hon.  Hugh John Macdonald h^s been called upon by the  Lieut-Governor of Manitoba to form a cabinet. Xfc  Lieut.-Governor Patterson had followed the pr^-  ceden't of Lieut.-Govemor Mclnnes, he would have  entrusted the ibrmation of anew government with  some broken-down   politician.  In the news that has reached here from the Capital,  it does not occur that Hon. Fred Hume was called  upon to speak against time,  These references of Joseph Martin to penitentiaries,  iron bars, etc., must have a grating sound on the  finelv-attuned ear of Minister of Finance Cotton.  Word has reached Nelson from London that our  esteemed fellow-townsman, W. A, Jowett, Esq., has  .tendered-his. services to the British Government to  take charge of the commissary in South Africa.  Thf spectacle of Alexander Henderson pleading  for the political lives of the men he condemned and  excrutiated but eighteen short months ago, is without  parallel in the history of Provincial politics, and  fortunately so. It would be a bad day for British  Columbia if there were any considerable number of  men of the Henderson type in public life. Henderson need not flatter himself that he has succeeded in  deceiving very  many   people,   for although   he was  {^MBBM^^m^^^m:^m^- *ass  5 ft li  Itjf  ,41  t#  t%S  o  raB  ^  tit  rt  f }  f   o  4-   *  4     \  THE NELSON ECONOMIST  aided in every possible way by the supporters of the  late Government, the general impression of those  Who came in contact with him at that, time was that  he was a "fellow, who would bear watching* Subsequent events-developed that he could sink to even  lower depths of political iniquity than was suspected,  possible in a young man just beginning public life.  The case of Henderson induces the belief that the  Malthusian doctrine is not without merit.  the fr,encjs of that party supplied the necessary �� here  with to carry on the   content   against Ws   ��dversar\  who was an avowed follower of the OpposiUon.

Irvine is a candidate for alderman'in the West  Ward. Mr. Irvine is a shrewd business man and  his presence on the aldermamV board would be a  matter of congratulation to the citizens.

AViTirs strong business council and-Mr. Fletcher  at the head, the maintenance- of Nelson as the commercial metropolis of the Kootenay is assured.  If Col. Sam Steele of the N. W. M.P. cannot  discover the exact locality of ihe Boer trenches, it  will be simply because there arc- no.Boer trenches to  discover.  Premier Skmijn had a bard hour last  Thursday,  and the   Plutonian   shadows of political 'destruction  still haunt his path.  Eighteen months, ago, in the political ethics of  the Vancouver Prober, Joseph Martin stood .for all  that was noble and pure in polities ; to-dav. acconi-  ing to the same authority, be is the '-horned beast."  who gores friend and foe alike.  ���TflKRK is enough material'in the list of candidates  before the people for the aldefmanic board to form a  good council.  *���  A conti-mi-'orakv points out that one 'event   that  has grown out of she  war  and mare Mr.MiWiUni.  ���mosi   than the   war   itself   is   the   closer   alliance  and. co-ojwraiiotioftJrcu llrttain and   her colonies.-'  livery colony has mad,, Britain's nar her own.

The JVt    that  he played the Judas with   the   late Government  arid  its supporters, will remain as a stigma on that -entle-  man so long as he lives.     Nothing is so contemptible  ui the estimation of the public as political ingratitude  and desertion   of friends.

This little bronze badge  was instituted at  the time^f the Crimean war, audi* altogether unique  in  the history of the world.

About the only statement contained therein that our  morning contemparary would care to vouch for would  be the terse expression of Candidate Houston, -"Saw  wood, boys." The words have a wild, woolly west-  tern ring, and undoubtedly the language bears a  marked relationship to those bright flashes of-wit and  wisdom that adorn the editorial columns of the  raatinal 77i6 ��#>>..  Tun Ti'ihnmhm been indulging in another "pipe  dream.M It states that the Fletcher committee have  hatched several deep, dark, malignant schemes to  defeat the will of the electorate-that dead men are  to bejppersonuted.. uon residents are to be impersonated, and absentees are to be brought from different  places. It is safe to say that no memher of the  committee contemplates any one of the three things  suggested; but, of course, it is beyond the realm  of reasonable h p.* to ..-.'.expect that the Tribune  will adhere strictly to the truth during the progress  of an election campaign,  During the winter, Nelson has been visited with  several bill-of-fare fakirs, and in nearly every instance  some one has been victimized. The restaurant keeper  generally suffers, but the printer who is green enough'  to do the wonc on credit is almost certain to get the  worst of it. Of course, anyone w'ho is simple enough  to imagine that an advertisement of the character  offered is worth anything, should be made to suffer  for his foil v.  Whatever council is elected, the first step taken  should be one in the direction of fixing up the streets.  The present condition of the main thoroughfare exhausts the vocabulary in securing words strong enough  to condemn it.  Oxk Monsieur Pierot has run against the neutrality  laws of the United States. He has been engaged at  Cincinnati in securing men for what'he says is the  Boer hospital service, and the United States court has  informed M. Pierot that his operations-must stop.  That settles M. Pierot. Whenever the persons who  are talking so loudly about raising troops for the  Boers tu the United States stop talking and start to  work in that direction they will find that same string  arm of the law ready to grasp them;  It is about time something was done to regulate  fast driving on the streets. Several teamsters seem  to regard the running down of pedestrians as a huge  joke.,' :; i'-i--.  Tun Board ofJTrade has selected a capable set of  officers for the current year. It is pleasing to observe  the growing interest in this institution.  To-night every elector in favor of a civic government of good business men should be present at Mr.  Fletcher's commttt^rooms"?and post themselves on  the situation.;������- It is probable that in ��0 far as Mr.  Fletcher's election is concerned it , is now only a  question of majority. The books show an overwhelming balance in Mr. Fletcher's favor.  Tine London, Eng., h��mh%r, supplies the following  striking illustration of the romance of war : "Only  the other day Major Maxse, of the Coldstream  Guards, son of Admiral Maxse, was lighting in the  engagement wherein the Khalifa died. On Saturday  he readied England ; on Monday he was married to  Lord . Leconfield's eldest daughter, the Hon. Mary  Wyudham ; and he is now about to start, for South  Africa to join his regiment at. the. front."  Read the concluding paragraph of Mr. Fletcher's  address. " In concluding I wish to say that in the  event of my election ��� I will consider it my duty to  share with the Council the responsibility of the Civic  administration believing, as I do, that the assumption  of entire authority by one individual is subversive of  all constitutional Government, whether Municipal or  otherwise."  Chris. Morrison is   a sure winner in the   East  Ward.  The reported meeting of Boer sympathizers at Victoria may transpire to have existed onlv in the vivid  imagination of the newspaper reporter. So far, every  prominent person accused of being present at the  meeting in question has been able to prove an alibi.  With *' Blake'' Wilson it should be only a question  of counting votes.  The Tribuw h is iuv^uted soatethin^ unique iu the  way of interviewing.

Oar neighbors to the  south, some States at least, are particularly easy.in the  matter of divorce.     The husband and the wife agree  ���or one or the other of them    the   further details of  the divorce  are simple and  inexpensive.     So   easy,  has the form been made, that people think nothing of  legal   separation   and   the frequency of 'divorce .has  "becomea positive evil.     But. strange divorce customs  pre found in various countries.'     Convenient   are the  methods  of  settling  domestic difficulties  in Upper  Burma.      When a husband.finds that his better   half  is not the unalloyed blessing he has been led to think  he'calls.into his house all the old men and women   of  his village and expresses his desire to divorce her, and  a trial by candle is   prosecuted.     The husband   and  the wife   are each given a   candle,which they   light  -simultaneously,  at  the  order  of   the  eldest   oerson  and placed in   the middle of the-floor.    Then every  one in the house sits around and'watches to see-which  candle burns, out first,    if the wife's. does so - the husband has a right to divorce her, **ven against her will  and turn her and her relations out of his house with*  ���- out more ado.     If- -tan the other hand, the husband's  candle-' burns out first, the' wife has   tbeoption and  right of- either refusing a divorce   or agreeing to '. it,  and turning' her husband .and his relations  out of the  house, which, with the goods and chattels it contains,  becomes her   personal property.      In -Cochin-China,  when husband and wife-find they can no longer agree  they give a dinner, to which they invito their 'relatives  and the patriarch of the village.      The latter,   duriug-  the meal, take?? the cho, -sticks of the pair and break.  them,   and .by   his,action    they are legally divorced.  With, a certain tribe of African savages, ' ^hcu a husband desires to be rid of his spouse --a fairly common  occurrence���betakes her to the door of'his hut or  tent and strikes her across the back with three rushes-  three times, crying, in his savage tongue at each  blow. " Wicked, naughty, -bad,"- which constitutes  the tribal "form of divorce. A husband.in Madanas-  gar may divorce his wife for the most absurdly trivial  offense. All he has to do is to call his friends and  relations to the door of his house and in their wresenec  give his wife a small coin and push her out, saying,  41 Madam, I thank you ; go," An underdone dinner-  will amply.justify him. When divorce is mutually  agreed by a Japanese pair, they wend their way to  the temple where they are accustomed to worship,  with a large scarf tying them together by the arms.  Kneeling before the altar they bow three times, and,  having undone the scarf they rise and depart indifferent doors, and by this formality become divorced  I he extent to which adulteration of food supplies  is carried would surprise many people. Legislation  tending in the direction of stopping such adulteration is  one of the crying necessities of the times. Before the  U. S.

The reports fr^m the se?t of war are not of a  character that will bring cheer to the hearts of the  British people.

The Canadian Almanac For 1900  Thh- national publication, in which for 53 years  The Copp, Clark Co., Limited, of Toronto, have  supplied Canadians; and the outside world as well,  with just about all that is worth knowing concerning  this country, is this year presented in an imposing  volume of four hundred pages of carefully compressed  and closely printed information about Cahadian Industries and Institutions, and every matter of commercial and industrial interest.  The Historical Diary for the year is of particular  interest, giving in an incredibly small space all the  principal events of this very important year. A  unique feature of the new Almanac is a list of Titled  Canadians, with their ranks and orders. This is the  first time that such a list has been compiled, and may  be considered as the beginning of a Canadian De  Brett. Certainly the Canadian Almanac is growing  larger and more complete every year, until it is now  difficult to see where it could be added to or improved.  The price however, still, remains, as in past year, 25  cents.���Copp* I %trk'Cu)ity>t-:ty, Publishers,  Special Sale of  ii finery . . .

(Vancouver World I  The /news from   the  front to-day made   even   our  clouded skies and wet streets pleasant and cheered the  hearts of all who awaited intelligence that would tell  us of triumphs won and deeds of daring such as have  ever characterized our soldiers.     The   hero   of   the  hour is an officer of whom we as Canadians feel proud.  Major-General. George Arthur French is an;irishman  to the manor born.     Roscommon claims him  for her  own, he having been born there on June 19th,  j&ji.  Educated at Sandhurst and Woolwich he entered  the  Royal Artillery in i860, became lieutenant-colonel in  1887, and was promoted to a   colonelcy for     ���distinguished service other than in the field" in 1H92.      In  this   possession   of  the   Crown he   was   appointed,  lieutenant-colonel and iuspectatorof artillery "in 1S70  and commander of,the  School of Gunnery   in 1S71  He organized the Northwest Mounted Police in 1H73,  and was its first commissioner, being also a stipendiary  magistrate for the. Northwest Territories, and in   the  following * year commanded an expedition sent from  Red River to the Rockies by-the   Governuiem.     He  ���was   made a C.   M,-G. in- 1877 for services, rendered  here.     Since leaving the Dominion he   has occupied  high and honored positions at Devouport, 10 Queensland, at Shoeburyness, in Bombay.and in Nvw South  Wales as major-general corjituaading the forces, which  position,  we believe, he still holds.    He .has received  the   thanks of both. Houses of  the Queensland   Parliament for services   rendered   in that   colony.     He  married a Cauad.au girl, the daughter of the late Mr.  Robert  JL  Junes,'of Kingston, and. so in  a   double  sexise is dear to  us,   and   we may well look   upon  him   as one of our own.      He has   many friends in  Vancouver who knew him in Manitoba and the Northwest,   and   his   exploits   formed the burden of the r  happy conversation today.      He is   referred to as'  a  quiet, unassuming gentleman, a true friend and .brave  CERTIFICATE OF ISflPROVEWIEffTS.  Yakima .Mineral Claim. *Huale in tin?

(Ottawa Citizen)  A vital element in the strength of the influence  wielded by the press lies in the confidence of the  people that the -man behind* the editorial pen writes  from conviction'. The fit :����� under the present  management has consistently and persistently advocated.' the ..strengthening of the bonds of imperial  unity; "The present way in South Africa afforded an  opportunity to- further the object by opening the way  f>v Canada to offer military assistance to aid our  fellow-subjects' of the empire in that distant  colony, in furtherance of that object we have.advocated the sending of the first and second contingents  of our troops to South. Africa. The writer happens  to Ix* an artillery officer, and when the call came for  that branch of the service he deemed it his duty to  practice what he had preached, and volunteer himself That his services have been accepted is an  evidence that the militia department is making an  honest effort to keep politics out of this matter, for  the Cit:i';n has no favors coming to it from the present  administration*  Candor forces.us-to admit that apart from a:-desire  to vindicate the high principle of the press, we wanted  to go anyway.

The Canadian Almanac For 1900  Th> national publication, in which for 53 years  The Copp, Clark Co., Limited, of Toronto, have  supplied Canadians, and the outside world as well,  with just about all that is worth knowing concerning  this country, is this year presented in an imposing  volume of four hundred pages of carefully compressed  and closely printed information about Canadian Industries and Institutions, and every matter of commercial and industrial interest.  The Historical Diary for the year is of particular  interest, giving in an incredibly small space all the  principal events of this very important year. A  unique feature of the new Almanac is a list of Titled  Canadians, with their ranks and orders. This is the  first time that such a list has been compiled;and may  be considered as the beginning of a Canadian De  Brett. /"Certainly the Canadian Almanac is growing  larger and more complete every year, until it is now  difficult to see where it could be added to or improved.  The price however, still remains, as in past year,- 25  cents.���Copp, (���'/��. o7; Cuuip'i tfyt PtthlukerB.

But,  nli, dear ; he is so horridly backward. He won't  . veu look a .'me. lie knows 1 came here on purpose  to l>e near him and.to talk to hivn. and see how he  neglects me and keeps out of my way ! Oh; sailor  am I so horrid and ugly���?.'.'  "1 told 'er as well as I could as 1 didn't think the  old man need take on so, 'cos she wosu't *arf bad to  look at. On the contrary, she was about as pretty a  pieter as you'd see in a month's cruise.  44 * Well...sailor*1 she went on, * what do you think  I've determined to do? I believe he won't have  anything to do wuth me simply because I'm a woman,  and some silly people think a woman can do nothing  but receive admi ration. Now, if I could show him  that I am brave".and strong and can think and act  for myself, perhaps.be would learn to love me, So I  want you to help me. [want you to fall overboard,  and let me jump after you;*  " It come   on me a bit sudden like;  and I   sorter  levied with astonishment/    But she   took 'old of my  and and squeezed it till I thought I should Taihtaway  m 'er  arms.  " ' Now, don't look surprised/ she ses; 'I'm an  awful good swimmer!

Then, with a cry as 'ud bring the skipper on deck,  the gal would dive after me and we'd go through a  sorter life-saving performance : and if that didn't  make the old man fall on 'er neck and ask to be forgiven���well, tbeti^we'd 'ave to throw 'im in next,  and let'er'ave a try at saving'im/1  ���-. ii.-. ;-..  " Well, next day was fine, with j'usta bit of breeze  as kept the bark steady under all sail, and as we were  only making about tour knots an hour, I reckoned  this was the time for the final scene. So I whistled  to the gal to get ready; and then I got 'old of all the  bouys I could find and pitched them astern when nobody wasn't looking. Next I sliriped off my boots  and dropped quietly over the side. .  44 When I looked up I seed the gal a-lookihg *s it  she was a-wondering 'ow cold it was. And then all  of a sudden she gave a yell, and dived in and come  swimming toward me like a fish. ./-      .  !"

Away in the wake of  the bark we. could see seven heads   a-bobbhg about  and one by one they came up to us andtol ared   *old  of a bouy, to wait for what was going to''appen next  And ail   the  time that   hlarmed   bark was standing  away, under full sail as if nothing 'ad 'appened.

In my 'Opinion a sufficient amount of money should be  expended upon the parks of the city so that they will pro  vide the citizens with recreation grounds and opport uni  ties -for- healthful enjoyment.
