In the first place   the  problem  ;���  which   the city council   ia now  trying  to work out, cannot bo solved by meeting* of the character relorrctl to".     The  Municipal  Clauses Act does  not tako  cognizance  of  any  party,  and   resolutions adopted  by  any  body of rffen  <'   onnnot alter  the aitiiulion.    ��� T ho.i'ela-  ,1,    tions between Aldermen Amiable and  '"'   Macdonald and thc "progressive party"  ���-    cannot' be   considered   in   connection  S.   with the  fact  that the "Mayor, has at-  i"   tempted to thwart the role of the ina-  /   jority and   lias   without   precedent- or  ;,    right exercised  the veto.     The 'men  o    who   took  part  in that  mooling  may  /_    im agine that they are tlie, law, but they  I    will.be quickly di.-iillti.sionel  0:1   th'n  *  ''.point as the situation is considered in  .its   various stages.     They may,   liow-  'V -over realize that the.y   have   made  a  Y Very ridiculous  exhibition   of' thern-  ���V   selves.  As to the sentiments  tittered at that  '     meeting   perhaps   the   less   said    tbe  ���,   better.   The language was intemperate  <-..'   in the extreuie,-tuul detuonstrated conclusively the dangerous spirit that pervades the community.'   Statements of  the most flagrantly libellous character.  were made, and the men who indulged  in this violent language were applauded  "   by others its irresponsible and thoughtless as .themselves.-   Some if the speakers, more guarded, conlinet'themselves  ^     to  suggestions  as to the   honesty  and'  ***   . integrity of indivit.iials, that while not  aw libellous as* the utterances  of   the  more reckless of the speakers, were calculated    to   be   equally  as-.injurious.  Throughout the whole'thcre was a display of venom that bodes ill for 1 he future of Nelson.  However, there was an amusing side  to the meeting. The idea .of a few  score of .men believing Unit they exercised tiny legal right or authority to  compel a duly elected member:.(if the  council board to resign, is not incontrovertible testimony, of the ia't-lli-  ��� gence of the men -who ''supported, this  ";" pfeposterfms theory.'- ��� AlileruieiP-'Ati-  11 able _ and "'Macdonald are not indebted te the "progress!veaparty"   for  their election. If they had depended  on the "progressive party" alone for  votes, they would have been defeated.  James Johnstone polled the "progressive party" vote and he was defeated.  The two aldermen before named were  elected by men who believed they were  honest aud would do their duty, aiid  they have done (heir duty by tlie ratepayers independent of the would-be  slave driver and his little band of  obedient followers.  One of the speakers atthe meeting  the other evening was very indignant  because Aldermen Annable and Macdonald had claimed the privilege of exercising their God-given- privilege of  thinking for themselves. During the  morning previous to the meeting, in a  conversation with a well-known citizen, this same speaker admitted that  Mayor Houston had flagrantly violated  a pfedge given at a meeting during the  last municipal contest,'but excused  His. Worship on the ground that tlie  two aldermen knew what kind of man  it was who gave the pledge, and had  no reason to expect that it would he  binding. This was not very compli-  nietilary to Mayor Houston, but the  spt'iiker compensated tlie mayor on the  platform at the meeting the same even-  inifi by referring to him as the man  who always fulfilled his pledges. It  is needless to say that this speaker isa  shining light in the f'.'Progressive  Party." He certainly.has all the qualifications for high office Tn that organization. '   ��� ���  "  The "Progressive Party" has certainly many features to recommend  itself to a.certain class of citizens. In  the lirst place it requires no exercise of  tin: mental fuculties to be a member in  good .tnnding.

The  'muster is not indebted toany oilier, organization for lults and-regulations.  lie makes regulations from lime' to  time as tlie exigencies of. the caseniay  demand.

The virtuous indignation of the Tri-  hnne has been aroused by the report  that Aid. Gillett, in conversation with  one Murphy, of Grand F��rks, on the  streets of Nelson, consigned Home portion of the ratepayers of Nelson to  eternal torment in the lake of fire and  brimstone. In denial, it is argued by  the friends of the east ward alderman,  that inasmuch as he is not orthodox on  the hades question, he would nut be  likely to use the expression attributed  to him, tut the horrified Mr. Murphy  writes the Tribune that Aid. Gillett  did use the expression which conveyed  the idea that the ratepayers referred to  might of their own accord or otherwise  take uj) their abode in hades. Of  course, this is a small matter in comparison with Mr. Murphy's good fortune. It is only a few .weeko since lie  arrived here from Grand Forks, and  already he has been; given tin -opportunity,to render a service that places  him first iii line for promotion in the  ranks of the "progressive party;."

The undue exercise of the voto was  one of the primary causes of one revolution. What wi'll be the outcome of  the use Mayor Houston is making of it ?

Tlie House of' Commons Press Gallery is honored this session by the presence of Joseph'Israel Tarte. who steps  down from theS- rank of Cabinet Minister and member of Parliament to that  of working journalist, with perfect  Imppin'ss and ^philosophy, writes Ji.  F. G. in Toronto Star.  The former Minister of public Works  has seat No. 8,<��n the Liberal side of  the gallery, anj no working day finds  him absent 'from his place with the  busy pencil pushers who occupy the  little eyrie over the'Spcaker's chair.  Mr. Tarte's conversation is illuminating, atid his comments ou. men and  speeches in thjp^ House have a quality  of knowledge-jihside which stamps  them with inte^estand authority.- Not  that Mr. Tarte^jceveiils secrets that he  learned whenJ.iu oflice, or does-anything that is not consistent witii honor.  He is almost Hiorbidly scrupulous On  the point of "giving away" anything  that he could ti_t have heard as an ordinary newspaper man. He will be  embarrassed for several years to come  by this fastidious conscience of his,  but after a while time will absolve bim,  and then we shall Lave some lively  memoirs.      ,.1' V I  Mr. Tarte ovfiis up, however, that he  has a tremendous advantage over.; the  journalist who-.lias never seen things  except from lhe outside, and  that his  experiences as^ a practical    polliiciun  .give hirii a leverage on the issues of  the day that would' he impossible lo  acquire  otherwise.     He  lealizies the  feelings  of   Loth  parties,  having belonged to both of Hum.     He has associated wiih the gitat men oi l.olh sides  on. terms'of equality, and that .l.e considers tiiaie privilege.     He knows intimately not im ly lhe men of the clay,  but his   mind; is enricLed  with   the  memories of the men of other days.  He is full of ibe history of Canada, because he has .^mingled   with  it,   and  helped lo-makeii.     He  has let-n behind all  thea|politieal scenes for u 11  years, and now tliat he is  depiived of  pii\ate;eiitite| he can guess .what is  going on fioniivhat he ltaiiied.befoie.  His varitus ttiiining in party polilits,  and his infc.lpjfc'i.into:the motives, and  .perhaps lhe foibles of. fta'tetmen. help  him alway_"to ielcet tlie  graphic ad  jective, and lend to an attractive style  ii piquant air of being able to tell more  if good tas'.e and a nice sense of personal honor did not forbid.  All these things Mr. Tarte acknowledges without reserve, and far from  railing at fortune, he thanks the fickle  goddess for endowing him so generously with those useful vicissitudes  which ge to make up the complete  newspaperman. Helms nothing but  gratitude for the turn of events which  left him a heart-free journalist once  more. In the mutation of earthly  things it befell Nicholas Flood Davi'n  to descend from member of Parliament  to press correspondent.- Poor Davin,  gifted and proud, look it badly. He  could never get bactf to thc old ways of  thinking. He was always ti.c fish out  of water, and he didn't like it. But  Tarte is another sort. He says that no  politician can ever fall by becoming a  newspaperman. To his mind it is an  ascent to sUp from the floor of the  Green Chamber lo the reporters' gallery. Here he is more a representative  ofthe people than ever, and his power  forgood is increased. He admits that  lie wonld not have mhseel Uie experience���it being better[to have loved and  lest than neA'er to bave loved at ail-  but he warns the gallery against ambition, and points out how much better  it is to write ii iliiential"articles of an  Attic purity of 'language and a Gallic  yivacityt of inaiiiier, to have all one's  time to search out the choicest phiusc  .aiid put opinion in the most graceful  form, than to be tortured by hostile  criticism of one's "estimates.

ENGLISH  BANK NOTES  Protection Against Forgery in  Printing and Paper.  The Bank of England note is the  most easily forged of all, for it is the  simplest, consisting as it does of black  printing on a white paper. The great  safeguard Hps in the quality of the paper and the quality of the printing-awl  the watermark on tbe paper, says Answers.  To make the actual paper is beyond  the skill of the cleverest forger. * It is  made at a pmall town near London,  but so well bas the secret been guarded  that the most skilful note printers in  the Irade do not understand that,  though they know most of the other  secrets. -  Note printing is one of the highly  skilled trades which still is a virtual  monopoly of the city of London. It  has always been so, and the great banks  ofthe world crmeto tlieengraversand  printers of London to have their notes  or plates mode. They turn out the  most beautiful printing in Europe.  Borne of it is of tbe moat complicated  description, and in this fact Jies its  great safety.  The steel plate itself is the work of  many hands and many brains. When  the main design has been decided upon  the parts of the picture have to be given  over, to several engravers, each of  whom is skilled in one branch of his  art and could not exchange his part  with any of tbe others. One is un  architectural engraver, and with a fine  needle he labors for weeks in the effort  to convey lo the metal a peifrci picture  of a building Another,with skill of  quite a different sort, makes portraits,  a ihiid diavs stene-iy, while a fourth  fashions tbe -letters. Still others con-  trivecorner pieces; and ihen theie is  the machine engraver, wbie'b is more  wonderful still, for the machine.does  'wink, so fine that no human hand can  imitate it.  The ctmplicnled work of tracery  which you see on the back and front of  Scotch aiid foieipn notes is so minute  that the camera cannotelfeclively.etopy  it. To leprcduce lhe photography on  zinc it is necessary to employ acid, and  the acid would cat away tli-se fine  lines. The work is done by a machine  which is made on the principle of the  pantograph. It seenis to consist of a  multitude of wheels awl eccentrics,  and apparatus for guiding aiid ckeck-  ing the needle and sending it in new  directions at all sorts of unexpected  auulcs and curve*.  After the design has been worked  out ou the machine in accordance with  the secret code, which is kept by tho  proprietor locked In the safe, the machine does the work itself, if the oper-  ator will go on turning the drlvin-j;  trank slowly and steadily. The pl.m  is takeu out with numbers, which.represent the wheels and tbe code of figures, showing the work which is to bo  done by each wheel, and how It comes  into play. But tbe operator cannot  know that secret. The. machine aim-  ply goes on in Its own way, and the  haxt slackening of any of tbe parts  >>ill put it all out. A workman cannot repair the error, for he does not  know the code, and the whole work  will be spoiled until the master <5ome_  along and resets the wheels and other  parts in their proper order.  Only a small part of the design is  worked out by tbis delicate mu_nine-  just enough to give a cooiplets representation of the pattern. Then that  ^portion is stamped on soft steel, which  is hardened by another secret process  and made into a sort of die, which is  used to impress other plates ot-steei,  till the full border is thus completed,  or a band made to go across the whol.  face or back of the note.  In the best of the colored notes three  or four tints are used, and generally  you fi nd that one of them is blue. 11  defies the camera. Thedifferent colors  are put on wiih different plates ami  each means a separate printing. . The  result is that if you hold one of the  notes up to the light you will find that  the lines of the different colors" run  into and through one another ;" making it impossible to take a perfect copy,  even if the camera could catch them  all, which it cannot.  No forger can get the tracery dono  by hand, because no engruver could ilo  it, and lie cannot get the machine. Jf  he had the machine it would take,  years to work but tbe secret combination of figures which make any particular design.- There'are only thiee  or four of these machines in the world.  Then for his design, in the shape' of  portraits and architecture and scenery  and lettering, he would want u combination of four or more engravers of  high ability aud bad character, which  would be as hard to come by as the  machine.   It cannot be done.  But lhe English note is protected ny  none of these things. Its lettering  and general design, can be copied quite  easily by the camera, and a good plate  reproduced oh zinc for printing. -It  eanbe photeigraphed on stone apd the  printing is ready at once if-Uie-forger  can get p&per'_f the;right-'sort.- . ;'   :���' *- "' ���''*"-'���'* g'-'"  "*  -$.-  :>^ft_J!V��*<Maig_3*^^  With Instruments such as are used on ocean steamers will Be giv^;^  At 8 O'clock, p. m., in Success Ciub,  ireless Telegraph Co. of Canada, Limited  Incorporated under the laws of Ontario, Dominion of Canada.

Western newspaper men are noted
throughout thc world fur eiitci'iu-ise.
All previous records were eclipsed I his
•week by tlie reporter of an evening
daily in ti city of British Columbia.
The feat that is now causing heartburnings among rival reporters was u
three-column interview with an illustrious visitor whom the reporter ' had
never seen. The Marconi- system
would be entirely superfluous if all
liieu were as gifted as the truthful reporter in quest ion.
Thursday evening last a parly of
railway ollicials, including a Uritisli
peer, arrived in tlie city referred to by
a late train. The peer had already retired, and waa not seen by anyone
that night. The party left early the
next morning, still without the noble's being honored by a reporter's
visit. A morning contemporary of
the evening daily mentioned the fact
of the peer's arrival and departure.
The party did not return <&> the city
until late the following evening.  ;
But a genius scorns, limitations of
time and space. Tlie second-sighted
interviewer informed several of his
friends that he had .''seooped"'his rivals. The evening paper contained u
three-column article on* the distinguished visitor, purporting to be an interview, not quoted ; it was privately
explained that "His Grace 'hail particularly requested that he should not be
