NUMBER 36  ���jisnn  ��fi  CITV FATHERS  SHOULD STAND UP  When Speaking at Meetings  of the Council.  GRANT TO THE LIBRARY;  The Rights of Occupancy Question  ���Aid. Klrkpatrick's Notice of Motion.  Last   week   a   comparison   was  made between   the proceedings of  the Nelson Board bf Aldermen and  'the   council  meetings  of  the Iroquois.    A correspondent points out  that there is a  vast difference between the two.    He  says  that   At  the council meetipgsof the Indians  the speaker always 6tood  up when  addressing the meeting,  while  the  I Nelson city father dispenses   with  this outward mark of  respect, notwithstanding the fact  that the bylaw regulating the proceedings   of  the council, explicitly states  thiit  the speaker must  stand, up when  .addressing    the   board.     Here   is  the   manner   in   which   the   Iro-  [quois  addressed   the  meeting,  according to a celebrated  historian :  When all was  ready, Kiotsaton  arose, strode into  the open  space,,  and  raising his  tall  figure  erect,  | stood looking for a moment at the  'Bun.    Then he gazed around brithai  ' assembly, took a wampum  belt) ia  his hand, and began : ' } ���  "Onontio, give ear. I am the  mouth of all my nation. .When,  you listen to me, you listen..'tc^aU  the Iroquois. There is, no 'evil-in.  my heart. My 6ong is a Bong vof  peace. Wo have many war-songa  in our ' country ; but , we have,  thrown theni all away, and now we.  sing of nothing but gladness and  rejoicing."  The Economist does, not' desire  to convey tho impression that tho  foregoing should prevail hib the set  form of speech in addressing ..the  council hoard ; it simply, wishes1, to  go on record as being .convinced  that it is somewhat of an, improve  mont on the pronont method of proceed ure. However,, this ,'is only a  suggestion, hut Aid. Irvinj,; might  lay the matter before Fred Starkey  this evening, whon he dropti in to  read Thk Economist.  Tho council meeting last Monday evening was not specially, in-  interesting. A Id. Hamilton and  Bird wore absent, and thore wore  only a few spectators present.  Mr. E. A. Crouso addressed \ tho  mooting on behalf of tho library (.requesting a grant of $500 to that institution. Tho grant was made, Although thoro aro many, whoi bo-  liovo that tho oity has no legal  right to givo aid to a voluntary in-  Btitution. Tho oounoil" would bo  porfeotly within its rights in establishing a pnblio library.  ment appears to be somewhat irregular, as the plumbing by-law  requires that one of the members  of the board shall be a practical  plumber, which, it is said, Mr. Hip-  [ person is not.  Tbe old question over the rights  of occupancy between ii. Laird and  a number of Chinamen again came  up. Both parties to the dispute  are willing to pay rent. The mayor  was given power "to act in the matter.  Mr. Laird and the Chinaman  are both squatters on the city's  land. .One has at much right as  the other. Both are on the ground  at the will of the council. The  Chinaman was the first to offer to  pay rent and has certainly done  more   to improve  the land   than  Laird.  City Solicitor Wilson stated that  the law required a two-thirds majority of the residents of the lake  foreshore to bring them within the  corporation limits, but there being  no residents there the matter would  have to come before the city in the  form of a by-law.  Aid. Hamilton and Bird were appointed council representatives on  the board of the Kootenay Lake  General Hospital Society.  The application of the Kootenay  River Lumber Co. for exemption  from taxation and free wate: and  light, was filed.  Aid. Kirkpatrick gave notice of  his intention to introduce at the  next meeting a  motion  to dispense  with the services of one of the scav-  i  engpr?.  Aid. Kirk patrick's motion is difficult to understand.    At this time  ;qf the'year it Eeems  that to  clean  fup   the  streets,   alleys   and- backyards of the city it will be necessary  to increase for a time the number of  scavengers, instead of making a reduction.    If the idea is to carry out  the proposition of ex-Aid. Scanlan,  and ask the  sanitary  inspector to  drive one of the  wagons,  the  proposal is impracticable.    How could  the    sanitary ..inspector,  keep    a  look-out over the whole of the city,  make his collections, Berve notices,  and attend to the  general work bf  the scavenging  department,  if  he  was engaged all duy as a t;amster?  And'would  the proprietors of  dry  goods' stores, hook-stores,  etc., ap-  prove of a .man  reeking  with  tho  elHuvia of stables and garbage com  G0V.-GENEH4  ANJUM  His Term of Office is for Six,  Not Five, Years.  LORNE     LIKED     CANADA  And Would Have Remained for the  Six Years, but for an Understanding with D'Israeli.  Ask    any    half-dozen    well-informed men whom you meet  what  is the term  of office of the Gover,.  nor-General  of   Canada   and   the  chances are they will tell  you five  years.     But  they   would    all   be  wrong.      A     Governor - General's  term of office is six years.    An authority on constitutional  subjects,  to whom the question was referred  by    the    Ottawa    Citizen,    said :  ''How does it come to  be generally  accepted   that    the    term   is    five  years?    I don't  really  know unless it is that   period synchronizes  with the duration of parliament in  this   country."    Whether   this  be  ihe true reason or not, it is a  fact,  at all events, that  the  majority of  Governors-Generals of the Dominion have held office within the five-  year   term.      Thus,  Lord   Lisgar,  who took office in  February, 1869,  was" Buceeeded  three  and one-half  years later by the. Earl of Dufferin:  the  Marauis  of  Lome   was Governor-General   for   scarcely     five  years, the  Marquis of  Lanedowrie  assumed office in October, 1883, and  was succeded by Lord  Stanley of  Preston, the present Earl of Derby,  in June, 1888, and the': latter  was  succeeded by the Earl of Aberdeen,  who was   sworn   in  as Governor-  General   in  September,   1893.   It  was on November 12th, 1898, that  tbe present  representative   of His  Majesty in Cunada took' oflice.  A five-year period would therefore terminate Lord Minto's tenure  of office in November of  the pres  Dufferin would hava had a term of  eight full years.  Lord   Lome recognized   that his  appointment  was, constitutionally  understood, an appointment of six  years, and he would  have endeavored to carry out his expressed desire to remain another year in Canada    but    for    a    punctiliousness  worthy of the age of chivalry.    He  was  appointed   to  the   Governor-  Generalship of Canada in 1878 by  Lord Beaconsfield, a political opponent,   who,    when    the   scion   of  Argyle was taking leave  of   him,  said, "Good-bye, Lome ; remember  it'Svi a   five years'   appointment."  Beaconsfield died before tbat term  was up and  Lord Lome, while he  wished, as he said, to remain another year in  Canada, .refused  tc  stay beyond the period named by  the great Conservative Premier. He  always felt that  Beaconsfield had  spoken but  abstractedly  in  reference to the term of the appointment,  but   he  held   it  neverthless  as:.a  point of honor not to ask to have it  protracted  beyond  the Kime mentioned. .,  NOMINATION  Starkey Passes It Up to His  Friends.  TAMMANY   IN    DISTRESS  which the Liberal mashine has  sought to eliminate Mr. Joseph  Martin from the political arena.  His supporters, however, have pre-'  pared for some such action by having everything in readiness to  launch a new party, to be known j  "The Western Provincial Party."  which will ally itself with none,  and will take for its motto, "The  West for the West."

White-  winged   peace  no   longer  finds an  abiding place in th9 wigwam of the  Tammany chief.    The cause of all  the   dissension  is   the  reluctancy  with which certain of  the faithful  respond, to the various calls which  are being made on their  resources.  Indeed, it has come to such  a pass  that it is only the rich who can indulge in the luxury of a seat at the  Tammany  political feasts.    A recent  convert to the  faith  has no  hesitation in saying and he says it  boldly that the organization is altogether too rich,for, his blood, and  that as soon as a favorable opportunity  presents  itself  he  wi.l do  penance,   for  his  sins by denying  himself,. the s priyileges, whioh  the  "Progressive People's Party" guarantees' its members.'

The Payne has found  its old-time  paystreak,  which  means a return  to the monthly dividends.   In the  Ymir camp the rich values uncovered in the 1000 ft. level will soon  start the idle stamps in motion, and  once again  the Ymir stamp-mill  will be dropping 80 stamps, which  is the largest number installed by  any mine in Canada.   With  the  settlement of the coal miners'Btrike  and a speedy re-adjuBtmont of tho  load  tariff, fully  1000 more men  will be omployod in   Slocan. and  and   Moyio camps, and when; to  thiB is added tho unusual activity  in tho lumbering industry in  this  section, tho outlook  iB^oxopcdingly  bright for tho Kootenays. i.

Nrlsox, March 14th, 1903.
One of the sighs  of  the   times is the revolt
which  is taking   placejin  the  ;United States
against  political conventions.    The objection
is not so much against a nomination for President as it is against the cut- and  dtfied ward
meetings and State conventions.;   Our friends
across the border are* prone  to  regard Canadians as  a little behind in almost everything,
yet the''agitation against the convention tyranny has been going-on  for some time in the
Dominion, the leading reviewers and, journalists having frequently pointed out the.fatuousness of accepting the verdict ofthe convention

It is contended, and perhaps '-trUthfully,,.:that
very often it happens that 'a   Liberal convention, called for the selection of a candidate,- is
packed by Conservatives'and nondescYipxjijvard
heelers with no other object  than   tp',select ,a
weak man, and tbat on   occasion Liberals are
not averse to taking a hand in the .selection of
a Conservative candidate who   will   be^'dead
easy."    It is a fact that the best mon jri both
parties are  never  found  inside ,a convention
hall, and that for the  look   of the, thing they
voteformen who are in -no- wise, .qualified,.to''
fulfil the aspirations of 1 the party,.   With   the
development of antagonism   toi.party conventions, it irf maintained, wei may;secure a bettor

Thk Economist ,hns been  asked  to defina

At tho present time a great deal in being
written 011 the question of trade unioiiM in tlio
Diiiniiiiiiii of Canada and morn especially in
iliin I'lnvinct'. Organized labor forms a very
iiiipuiiiini purl, in the electorate of the country,  ai.d  if all  the workers in tho different
branc-hos of industry decided to combine their
foroes they certainly vroui4 ' wield :. powerful
influence on future legislation. They wouUl
hi- a power that would he feared by the t,)d-
':r:e parties, and there might be urore of the-
pre-election pledges redeemed th:ui at the

the fact that the per capita paid by ths unions

The "lawyer's union" should consider the
case of the editor of the Nelson Tribune. This
gentleman is a bit of a lawyer himself, although not a member of the order. He recently rendered a bill of costs to the city of
Nelson for $300 for professional services in a
real estate deal in which the city was interested. The bill was not itemized, and on
being asked for an itemized bill in order that
it might be taxed, this ouasi attorney indignantly refused to fun?ish one. His bill was
accordingly, paid without any deductions
being made. He now comes out with a denunciation of certain lawyers of the regular
school, who rendered an itemized bill for their
services, submitted it to taxation, and had
their bill reduced. If any question of honest
dealing arises in either of these cases, which
of the two is the better ? One cannot help
wondering how that $300 bill would have
looked if it had been itemized and taxed.
The "Gamey charges" against Hon. J. R.
Stratton in particular, and the Ross Government in general, will constitute the darkest
page in Canadian history. If the charges be
true, and they appear to be corroborated in
every essential detail, the days of the Ross
Government are numbored. J. R. Stratton has
been 17 years in the Legislature as member
for West Peterboro. He was taken into the
Government as Provincial Secretary in 1S99,
and has won great applause in his success in
managing by-electious. The other leading.
performer in this drama is "Gap. Sullivan."
He has been an "oiler up" of the machine for
, a number of yearp, and ..was one of the chief
operators in the West Elgin election frauds.
Death lurks in the Liberal political pot.
One section of the coast Liberals have pro-.
nounced in favor of Joseph Martin as their
leader, while another section are putting forth
the claims of Ralph Smith for the exulted position. This is the bone which the Liberals
are gnawing at just now, and the outcome may
be the death blow to party lines in the Province. The opinion is rapidly gaining ground
that neither party is in a position 10 fight just
now, the Conservatives being as badly divided
as the Liberals. The real truth is that the
eloctors of British Columbia are too advanced
in their ideas to accept without protest dictators who are party men for revenue purposes

KHlcacy or Olive Oil.
Medical authorities are generally
agreed as to tho value of olive oil medicinally, finding it also a potent agent
for any defects of tho excretory ducts,
especially tho skin. Eczema has rapidly
disappeared upon a discontinuance of
starch foods and tho substitution of a
diet of fresh and dried fritits, milk,
r.ggs and olive oil. The beneficial effecta
of the latter, when thus taken in conjunction with a fruit diet, have frequently been remarked in respect to the
hair, nails and scalp, supplying to the
sebaceous glands tho oily substance
wrhiT;h they sccreto when in a healthy
condition, and tho absenco of which is
tho cause of debility of tho hair, frequently ending in baldness, says The
Scientific American. It has long been
observed that t.hoso who treat Olive, oil
as a common article of food and tiso it
as such aro generally healthier and iu
better condition than those who do not,
and its thevapoutic and °prophylactio
proper! ies aro very favorably regarded
by medical men. It is known to be do-
fitruotivo to certain forms of micro organic life, and foi- the eradication of such
from the system its internal uso has

A rebuke emphasized by a kindness is
apt to bo remembered. One day au officer walked into the office of one of the
well known business men of the west.
"What do you want here?" he said
to tho officer.
"I'vo couio to attach tho wages ol
ono of your men for a debt."
"Who is tho man?"
Tho officer named him. and ho was
at onco summoned to his employer's
"How long havo you been in debt?"
Was tho first question asked.
"Been behindhand for 20 years. I
can't seem to catch up, " said tho man.
"But j'on havo a good salary-. "
"I know it. but I can't get out of
"You must get out, or you must leave
hero.  How much do you owe?''
Tho wholo was not much less than
$1,000, but the employer immediately
wroto his check for tho amount, and
said, as ho handed it to tho man:
"This will pay all your bills. Ifl
hear of your running in debt again,
you'll havo to go. "
It was whar. tho doctors call "heroio
treatment," and it not only astonished
she man, but "revolutionized" him. Ho
settled with his ^creditors, and then, by
carefulness, kept out of debt.

The Original Siamese Twins.
The sleepy village of Biddenden, not
far from Tcnterden, celebrates yearly
the memory of the two maids of that
ancient hamlet who were tho original
precursors of tho Siamese twins. In life
they were joined together by a mysterious cord of flesh, and they died on tho
tame day, leaving,thoir property to be
distributed among tlie poor of the parish aud among all wbs car© t© apply
for a dole of bread and G&.CSCG G£3' Easter
day. This benefaction £__fi fej22ii'__'. existence for six or seven 'oCfX&sz&P. r ad at
present its value is about §aotJ a year.
Formerly the doles consisted of bread
and cheesei and ale, but thd latter produced so much hilarity iu the village
that it "was abolished, and tho.charity is
now limited to tho twro first mentioned
nutritivo articles. The bread is made
up in tho form of cakes, bearing a rude
representation of tho twin maids of
Biddenden, and-are generally preserved
as curiosities by tho recipients.- They
are baked very hard aud aro admirably
adapted to give work to dentists by
breaking, the molars of those who attempt to penetrate their mystej'ios.- The
poor of the parish as" distinguished from
neccssitou&is'trangcrs aro supplied with
ordinary quartern loaves aud cheese.—

The Jessie Shirley company had  dates in various cities of British Columbia, all or which have been  cancelled, because some of the members of the company refused to  submit to the Canadian quarantine  regulations at Blaine.

Tho main topics given by an interesting  (yi-itcr  on   the  cookery subject  are, first,  bread; secind, butter; third, meat; fourth,  vegetables, and, filth, tea, by which last is;  meant generic-ally all sorts of warm, comfortable   drinks   served   out   in  toaeups,  whether they bo called  tea, coffee, chocolate, bromo or whatnot.    If theso five do  partmentsnre ah perfect, tho great emiso_  ilQincst io cookery are  answered, so far a��  the comfort and well being of life are concerned.     To begin, then, tho very foundation of a good tabic is bread.   It should bo  light, sweet and tender.    This  matter of  lightness, the writer  tells   us, is   the distinctive lino between savage and civilized  bread.   The savage mixes shm.iy Hour and,  water into balls of paste, which he throws  ��� into   boiling water, and which  cimw Qui  solid, glutinous masses, of which Ida ccttn-  mor. saying is, "Man otd> dis, ho no die,"  which a facetious traveler who was obliged  to subsist, on it interyvotcii to mean, "Dis  no kill, nothing will,"  That we are receivin  every day.
