M'  EDITORIAL COMMENT.  IN electing members of a  municipal   council  the   consideration^   that    should    weigh  with      the      voters     are     the       fitness      of  tlie      candidates      from       all       points  .     of  view,      their      integrity     and.    their    independence.    General  affability   and   geniality,  while they are virtues in a private citizen, are  not in themselves great  recommendations   for  civic administrators.     A city council  is   practically a board of management   to   look   after  the    business:   interests    of   the   corporation;  therefore the only "man who will make a good  n.1 derm an is the man who   can   safely   be   entrusted to assist in managing business affairs.  The integrity of aldermen is   of   vital   importance, and it is a point not.   to   he   overlooked  1 hat. a man is not blameless because   his   own  hands are clean and his own   capital   not  increased at the expense  of  tlie   public.    Tammany Hall number among its members   some  gentlemen whom no one would accuse of   personal dishonesty, but it   was   the   support   of  such men that maintained thatcursein power  in New York for many decades   aud has made  Tammany a synonym for corrupt ''ring1' rule,   j  Every member and supporter of every corrupt   I  political organization is guilty of every act   of  such organization ;  the man who, for any motive, votes for���a. supporter���a slave of a "boss"  is morally responsible for   every   act   of   that  "boss."  Now with th(-ise premises let us examine the  qualifications of the candidates vvho seek the  people's support. Ex-Alderman \V. G.  Gillett is a. contractor of many years' successful .ixperienco in his business, an extensive  employer of labor, directly interested in everything that affects the conditions .,f labor in  Nelson and in Kootenay ; he has served the  city on the council hoard before, and no truth-  complaint  has   et er   been   made   again-t   his   l.  his conduct there, except that he put what   he   j,  considered the city's interests ahead of   preju-   I  dices and ambitions of a man who  aspired   to   :  be the city's ''boss."    Of   his   personal   integ-   I  rity no one has ever   doubted.    And,   just   as   ;  important as either of the foregoing qualified.-   j  tions, he is truly independent,   he   has   taken  no oath of allegiance to .any   "boss1'   but   his  own brain and conscience ;   he   can safely   be  trusted to give an  honest and intelligent decision upon every matter that will come   before  the council.  Mr. James A. Gilker is also an ex-alderman,  also a man of successful  business   experience,  also privately a gentleman whose integrity   is  unquestioned.     But he is,the   candidate   of   a  !   political organization whose aims and methods  !   are the bane of decent municipal government.  I   That organization���the "Progressive People's  j   Party "���is but the band of slaves of one man  whose creed���and no one will  accuse   him   in  this   matter   of   failing   to   practice   what   he  preaches���is u To the victor belong the spoils."  Power means place and patronage.     It is easy  to persuade his follower??   that   their   interests}  are bound up vvith his and that their rewards  are sure, the great  thing   is   to   retain   power  and that can only   be   done   by    voting   ,l the   I  ticket."     And who so well nullified   to   name  " the ticket " and to dictate the party's policy  as the " boss " himself.  Strange,   preposterous   as   it   seems, "boss"  rule is the off-print, of democracy.  Democracy  means tlie rule of the pe ��ple   by   themselves ; t  in  fear   lest   some   men   who  might   consider  themselves aristocrats should   have  too   great  an influence upon public  affairs,   others   who  rejoiced in the name of damocrats have formed  organizations to prevent   tlie   rule   of   cliques,  but invariably or almost so, such organizations,  for efficient control, have delegated their wills,  their brains and their consciences to one man;  they began with democracy   and   ended   with  despotism.    That is what tho citizens of   Nel-  are now called upon to confront.    The   "hosts"  appeal* to envy anil personal  pride ;  he   asks  the   voters   to   resent  and   resist   someone's   ���  whose ? Mr. Gil let t's ?������-arrogance and "snobbery "    Let  the   people rule, that,   is,   let   the  u  practically puts the Prior Government  out   of  business.    Just what the   Premier will   do   in  his present dilemma can only be   a   matter of  conjecture, but it is generally believed  he will  ask. for a dissolution and  go   to   the   country-  The Government is not organized for a fight ;  neither is the Opposition ;  the party  line men  have    no   organization, and   a   battle   at   the  present time could only result   in   the   return  of    42   members,    some    acknowledging   allegiance to one or the   other   of   the old parties,  and    perhaps  the   majority of the -42  pot regarding    themselves    bound by   any political  ties.  Mr. Gillett, candidate for alderman in the  East ward, is   regarded   an   enterprising, safe  business man.     Every dollar   he has made in  Nelson    has   been   invested   here, and   he    is  deeply interested in   the   future   of   the   city.  During his term  in   the   the   city  council    Me  manifested an independent   spirit   and   dared  to do what lie conceived to be right and thereby won the hostility of the dictator.  The famous  lamp   of Towneley   chapel,   of  Towneley hall, in   England  has recently been  extinguished.     This was probably the  last   of  the so called "ever   burning"   lamps   of   England.     It is claimed that the Towneley   lamp  had been burning constantly   since   the   days  of King Alfred���for more than one    thousand  years.     At the beginning of the   last   century  half a dozen were still alight, while at the dissolution by Honrv VIII many hundred alight  in the monasteries had been burning ever since  the Norman conquest.  Doubtless these perpetual lamps were a remnant of that form of pagan  worship known as everlasting fire,   which was  kept alight by the guardians, who  were   punishable by death if they allowed tlie  lire to go  out.  11 r v 1 jr.i u   ,1,,,,    , 1...,    ?  boss" rule. The reward is the spoils of victory ; present officials will ha dismissed and  the most zealous supporters of the uboss" will  V  replace them.  The onlv thing that could conceivably im-  part any virtue to the absolute rule of one  man would be the intelligence, justice and  honor of that one.     Is our would-be   ''boss" of  that class ?

THE city of Minneapolis is an  example   of I  the evil of "machine rule/' and   a   refer- j  ence to the conditions that   prevailed there up j  to a few months ago may not be uninteresting !  to the citizens of Nelson at the present time. <  For years Dr. Ames, who in private life belonged to that class known as " good fellows,"  associated himself with a gang of rascals who  literally plundered the city and practiced the  most flagrant corruption in order to hold on  to office and line their own pockets. Through  the supineness of the ratepayers the cityallowed  itself to fall into the hands of this gang of unprincipled men at the bead of whom was  Ames and his brother who held the position  of chief of police. Every sort of vice was licensed and taxed for the personal benefit of  the ring who controlled 'the city's affairs;  theives and burglars were kS protected " by the  police in the pursuit of their crimes ; gambling hells were officially licensed and the police were principally employed in collecting  the rake-off and punirihing those who did not  pay up handsomely. Apparentlv tne press  must have conuived at the disgraceful reign  of corruption for nothing was done io check  it until a grand jury was empanneled for an  assize court whion had at its head a courageous and public spirited mill wn > urged upon  the body to take action. Tne rirst difficulty  was to induce the public prosecutor to ace.  in co-operation and the effort to do si) failed,  but the services of iiis assistant we're secured  and the grand jury proceeded to accumulate  evidence and indict the ring leaders. Efforts  were made to buy them off, and, that failing,  a plot was laid to have the foreman put out  of the way, but that also came to naught.  When the conviction uf two or three of the  ring was secured some of ihe others got panic-  stricken and turned state's evidence. Tne result was that tlie panic spread. The mayor  was finally arrested, but, oo being let out on  bail, jumped his bonds and fled, being assisted to get out by interested parties, who  feared to be incriminated by the expected  revelations at the trial. Though he has now  been arsested there is no doubt that everything that money can do will be done to pre  vent him being punished lest he %t squeal " on  the wealthy and influential accomplices vvho  proiitted by the reign of corruption. The result may be some arrests and .convictions as  sensational in their character as i hose in connection vvith the recent Si. Louis bribery scan-  a  dais, when several owners of ill-gotten millions were among the prisoners vvho were sentenced to terms of years in tlie peuitentiaay  for their complicity in the crimes which disgraced municipal government in that city.  Canadian papers are commenting on the  condition of affairs that prevailed in Minneapolis,   the   Ottawa   Citizen  condensing   the  The performances given by the Hewitts at the  Opera House this week were decidedly meritorious, but were not very well attended. Mr.  Hewitt is perhaps the most versatile performer  yet seen io Nelson and some of his acts are  really incomprehensible. Should the Hewitts  again visit Nelson they are certain 0 to be well  patronized.  What Wilson's " Uncle Tom's Cabin Co."  lacked in quality it made up in Quantity.  The performance was scarcely up to tbat of  the   average strolling company.  Robert Jamieson has given up the management of the Victoria Theatre, and a? he controlled all the bookings, the new management  cannot secure a company for the balance of  of the season.  The first meeting of the British Columbia  Club, formerly western student- of Victoria  University, Toronto, was held recently. The'  purpose of the club is to promote an interest ,  in the province of British Columbia, and especially to strengthen the Methodist church  in this part of the Dominion. Those forming  the club are students, probationers and ministers who are attached to that particular conference. The initiation ceremony was conducted by President Robert Hughes, Vice-President Ernest Stapleford and Recorder George  K. Bradshaw. The prospective members  passed into the assembly under cans of British  Columbia salmon, with which they were afterwards crowned, and upon which they also  swore allegiance to the principles laid down in  tbe constitution, which embraces the following : No office-seeking will be countenanced ;  all preaching for " calls " and conference intrigues render the offender liable to excommunication. The ideal which the club sets before the members is expressed in the words :  "In honor preferring one another." The cans  of salmon were afterwards opened and the  company sat down to supper, lt was generally  felt when the meeting came to its close that  British Columbia would soon have a large  place in the life of the university. Rev. J. H.  White, Nelson, newly appointed superintendent of domestic missions in British Columbia  was elected honorary  president.  n. c. civun song.

Alphonse Daudet received so many new  volumes written by his friends that he seldom read one, but this did not prevent him  forwarding the customary letter of approval.  As illustrative of this a French paper publishes the following incinent: u When Leon  Cladel published his novel, * Ompranddailles '  he sent a copy to Daudet, who forthwith  penned a most elaborate letter of congratulation. The style of 'Omprandailles ' was unexcelled, tlie plot marvellous, etc... etc., in fact  the novel was nothing short of a chef d'ouuvre.  A few days later Cladel paid Daudet a visit,  and to his great surprise discovered his novel,  leaves uncut, in the middle of a big pile of  new books. Daudet thought that it was best  to confess.    Therefore he called  his   secretary  ���WI  itlLJ^L.  ��������Mi��i��^wlw��M**wr������"i!>^^ _..a...i   THE NELSON  ECONOMIST  and told him in the presence of Cladel : ' My  dear sir, it seems to me that I instructed you  to cut the leaves of all the new books sent to  me ; do not forget this in the future !' Useless  to say that Daudet and Cladel could not look  at each other without laughing heartily, and  the incident wTae closed."  Mayor Burrell, of Grand Forks, struck the  key note of the situation, when in an address  at Victoria the other evening he advised that  all labor troubles in the country be settled on  a permanent basis. Something of this character is badly needed in British Columbia.  John H. Mackenzie, retiring general manager of the Le Roi, seems to have been rather  popular in Rossland. Previous to his departure for California, he was the recipient of  many valuable tokens of esteem at the hands  of his fellow-citizens.  The Nelson Amateur Dramatic Club has  now in preparation that well-known piece by  Pinero, " Sweet Lavander." The production  will take place within ;a week or two. There  have been several additions to the club re-  centl}7, and great things are promised for the  forthcoming production.  The prohibition bill will be discussed at the  meeting of the Success Club next Monday  evening. Several speakers who have not yet  been heard from will take part in the discussion.  According to the   auditor's   report   the   unpaid taxes in Greenwood aggregate $22,367.  is so deeply rooted as in tlie Pacific   Province.  As R. E.   Gosnell   remarked   to  the   Victoria  Times, u The   absolute contrary   is   the   case.  From   my   knowledge   of   both   Eastern   and  Western  Canada   I  am   positive   that   iu   no  other part of the Dominion   are   political   ties  more  fimly   cemented.    Canadian   sentiment  has been   growing   stronger   every   year   and  ever\Tbody knows that   this  Province  is   out-  and-out    British.       Comparatively   speaking  commercial relations with the Sound and San  Francisco are much less intimate  than   years  ago."  Oneof the finest jewellery stores in British  at *��  Columbia is that of Mr. Jacob Dover, of Nel-  -son. A commercial traveller who has been in  every city in the Province, says Mr. Dover's  store would be a credit to the larger stores of  the East.  The final carnival at -he skating rink, Monday evening was well attended and  successful  in every respect.    The  following prizes   were  awarded:  Best lady skater   in   costume,   Miss  b.

Mrs. T. Madder, Miss  Detrich and T. MePherson were the judges.  Rev. Mr. Gordon, better known as " Ralph  Connor," author of u The Man From Glen-  gary," and other stories, has been making  mischiovious statements iu Toronto. To a  reporter he said that "British Columbia is  drifting away from Canada, and business ties  with Seattle and the Sound cities are liable  to prove more powerful than the lies of  blood." Evidently Mr. Gordon is not very  well acquainted with sentiment in British  Columbia. There is no Province in the Dominion where loyalty to the  Mother   Country  The Canada Drug & Book Co. has a special  sale of dictionaries.  Mrs. A. M. Tamblyn entertained the victorious Nelson hockey team and a few of their  friends to an oyster supper at the Nelson Cafe,  last evening.  A CARIBOO PIONEER.  The man vvho located the first gold mine on  the Mainland of British Columbia is visiting  Victoria, as earnest, persevering and energetic  in'the pursuit of tbe glittering wealth which  nature has stored in the earth a�� when he led  the van of argonauts to the rich diggings in  the good old days gone by. This is Jame-  Moore, the well-known Cariboo miner.  it was in March, 1858 that  Mr. Moore  and  others located claims   on   Hill's'   Bar,  rn   tbe  the   r?raser,   out   of   whicji   a   wealth   of   the  precious metal was   taken,   the   returns   with  rockers being from fifty to a  hundred   dollars  a day.    The next year saw Mr. Moore in Cariboo, where,  he was one   of   the   discoverers   of  the  Horsefly,   which   afterwards   became   the  property of  it.   T.   Ward,   of   San    Francisco,  under the name of the  Ward   claim.    In   the  days of its discovery it  was   called   the   Blue  Lead.     Despite the fact that a   span   of   more  than forty years separates the present from the  time it was   staked   the  mine   is   still   being  worked.  Speaking to a Victoria Times reporter the  other day, Mr. Moore said that the Onward  claims on Keithley creek were paying from  thirty to forty ounces a week. In January  its owners cleaned up one hundred and, thirty  ounces. The Moore company has three claims  on Spanish creek, which (lows into'the north  branch of the Qnesnelle river. Tlie ground is  being opened up by a tunnel from the level of  the North fork. During tlie past season the  Company has driven miro^ lhe old channel,  and good pay dirt has heen struck, the prospects being from four to six ounces for a. set  of timbers.  Black bear creek, a branch ot Spanish river,  where Mr. Moore is now working, gives good  indications, and with the necessary expenditure of labor and capital should, he thinks,  re-uh in gov.d diggings. It is reported that  on Goose creek, where ihe Helgerson brothers  have good property, but where a .cloudburst  did them damage last-summer, new machinery  will be installed during the coming season  and active work  resumed  Speaking of the freight rates made Mr.  Moore reminiscent. He recalled how in 1861  he took a pack of provisions to Antler creek  from Lytton, when the rate was forty cents a  pound. But he reaped a harvest when he  got there. So eager were the miners for the  goods that they did not wait for him to unpack them. He sold flour at a dollar a pound.  Meals in those days were $2.50 each, and no  luxuries were included in the menu, either.  Before coming to British Columbia, Mr-  Moore tried his fortune in California, He  struck that wonderously rich district in 1851,  when it was in the zenith of its fame as a gold  producer. 'Frisco was then a mere village.  With Mr. Moore in the present delega-  gation from the Carib.>o is another well-  known miner, Mr Seward, who went to California in 1850, arriving on the ship Shakespeare, which many old timers of this province  will probably remember. In those days California's treasure poured from the earth in  millions, the total output being from $45,000,-  000 to $75,000,000 per year.  Daily- News :    Tne 'attempt to  represent  W.  G, Gillett, one  of   the  candidates   for the vacancy in tlie aldermauic representation   of the  East ward as b-iug opposed   to   tbe   extension  ot'the   city po\ver   plant,   is   extremely   silly.  Everyone knows that   Mr. Gillett   ha,s always  been an enthusiastic supporter of   the project,  and if he secures a, sett iu the council we confidently look forward  to  his actively pushing  on the work.    He is  just  the  man   to   render  valuable assistance in   :u undertaking of this  kind, aud it speaks well for  his   public  spirit,  that he is willing to serve on the council   now  when he  might be working a graft  for   a contract.     Id's opponents inusi   he   very   short, o'  ammunition   when   they   have  to    throw  out  mean   insinuations  of   the   kind   referred   to.  Opposition to Mr. Gillett's candidature is perfectly proper, but it should he based upon honest grounds, not upon obvious falsehoods.  UPM ELECT!

I am wretchedly tired, yet thoro is  the long article to De written for *he  next post leaving the station���on tho  Klondike. And what is there 1 have  not already written?  The latest arrival at this lodging  house is a stupid oldish man. I suspci t  him to be a reporter, like unysclf. He  will have to hurry if he lets anything  more than I have. Newspaper Work is  not exciting saus a telephone, a urrht  cab and the rub of a hudreel busy brain's  . employed on a large city edition. The  descriptions were all very well at tlrst.  There was the travel out from civilization, with all its incidents and accidents;  then the ky.cn observation of t-jc country of the Klondike itself, with all ita  possibilities and actualities.  Uci descriptions of the country and  ita inhabitants are growing threadbare,  and a romance or two, the last brief  communication from the city editor  b:;jt'v-d, would bo very acceptable, rev  c;.a^ce where tho moon is ucvct  mo.v& suggestive of anything than fh��  s��j..'.:v_ts, v/hci'G a shimmcry lawn awl  bft.rr�� throat would inspire a long niglit-  nsuiro of pneumonia and crou.p, while  as to the orthodox hammocl:���ah. a  hammock on the Evlowlike would be  avai l.\ bio for oceupa::'. y only whin  swung bstweon two andirons.

Its fiii'u.1  blazes now and then brighten t.v< walls  of a miner's camp. Tho smoke from the  speaker's pipe curls iu rings above his  bead���then, settling, lingers about him  in a thick cloud, out. of which emerged  two crossed and well booted legs and  feot stretched at length and resting  upon a huge log lying back of the stove  aud wedged between it and tho wall.

"  It had had as long i��nd bitter a meaning as his long and tiresome journey,  Cor Ward McArthur had traveled many  miles   by train and boat, ou_ horseback  and on foot to reach tnese golden Hchte,  bo alluring to read about when one is  comfortably warmed and clothed and  fed in a climate that is not calculated to  make the blood freeze in his veins, then  be thawed by an open log fire and moved about only to have his blood perform  the same ui) to date feat.  tmhleiady AicArthur's boots came  down with a thump, and his head is on  its level plane again. A petticoat passed his window. This was indeed a rarity in the snow fortified burg. Ou go the  long fur coat, cap and gloves. As he  slams the cabin door McArthur catches  sight of a natty figure in long ulster  and walking hat skurrying down the  street amid the flakes of snow. A couple of hours later the settlement seems  to have lost a part of its barrenness. A  pair of blue eyes had looked into his  when the adroitly managed introduction  took place, and something else had occurred also, a mutually created interest  each in the other. The two words gold  and golden are very nearly alike. He  had loved the word gold for its intrinsic  value, and he had already realized the  full worth of it. He now added to hi&  limited vocabulary the other word, golden. Who would not when they saw the  sheen of that goldeu head? And Ward  McArthur fully appreciated that he had  traveled many thousand miles for gold,  and that he bad found not only gold,  but also love, which is far more precious.  HER STORY.  I have just been talking to the late  arrival I spoke of He is a most interesting man. and not at all poky or old  as he looked to be. He seems to be hungry for the society of womankind, and  when I told him in confidence.of my  perplexity over furnishing a romance for  the pap'j-r his eyes twinkled as he Suggested we might supply one ourselves,  so we have entered into an agreement  to take up a harmless flirtation, on his  eide for amusement and on mine from  professional motives.  His eyes are* very brown and tender  His beard is brown, too, and 1   like tho  sincere way he has cf speaking of people  and tilings.  iris STORY.  "Who would have believed it,'* said  the great, stalwart fallow to himsojl' up  he strode out into* tlie frozen air.

Ward McArthur is my friend's name,  I havo learned more about him thau 1  did when w* agreed to outer upon a flirtation, to inspire this most stubborn  pen of mine aud to satisfy his longing  for companionship.

It is three weeks since* we have said  foolish nothings to each other, still I  have not a story of Klondike romance to  forward home. 1 said this to Mr. McArthur this morning. He laughed and  said nothing, but his eyes spoke volumes. If 1 only could write down what  they seem to say. and my corresponding  feeUngs, I could earn a pretty sum. If  he *ts so fascinating just in fun, he i:��ust  be irresistible when truly in earnest.  He has told me a fund of valuable facts  about gold prospecting, which I mean  to jot down.
