WILL START ALL OVER  City Aldermen Were Working  Under Wrong Procedure.  D. G. CATHCART IN TROUBLE   THE    LARDEAU    CAMP  SOLICITOR PUTS THEM RIGHT  On the Frontage Tax Question.���������Not  Much Likelihood of the Trunk Sidewalk Being Built This Year.���������The  Public School Janitor's ;Salary Must  Ee Paid by Somebody.���������More Public  Improvements to be Made.  The niceling of lhe city nldeinien on  Friday  evening last  was a comparatively quiet one.  All wen; present except Aid. Brown.  Tlle minutes of the last meeting were  read and adopted.  A communication was received from  Chas. F. Lindniark on behalf of the  school board asking the city to pay u  balance of S<Xn.'iO due the .���������janitor.  With the permission of the mayor  Mr. Lindniark explained to the council  that the school hoard's repeated efforts  to get the provincial government lo  assume this liability had been unavailing. Thu amount in the past had been  raised by popular subscription,,entertainments, etc., but the board had  found rhe burden too heavy and ho  thought it nothing but right and  proper that all should bear an equal  share, of the ..mount, and asked the  alderman to give the matter "their  earnest consideration.  Aid. Crage could not see why the  provincial government should not bear  this expense. It surely was their duty,  as they were controlling and running  the school system of the city.  Aid. Graham said that as a member  of the school board he could bear out  Mr. Lindin.-irk's contention, and added that-all tlieir efforts to secure this  amount from the provincial, government had failed.' lie knew that it was  the same all through the piovince, so  that there was not much uso of further  correspondence on the subject with  the educational department.  ' Ir, was finally decided to have tho  city clerk write direct to the minister  of education and then if refused point,  blank they might assume the payment  of the janitor.  A resolution .was received and read  from It. Tapping and II. Needham  favoring the frnnl.gc tax anywhere  and everywhere. It was, carefully  filed.   '  Upon advice received from City  Solicitor McCarter and the Kamloops  city clerk, it wes demonstrated that  the. city must bear the expense of  keeping and caring for any sick in the  city who. could not care or pay for  themselves.  The public works committee recommended : That Ihe sum of S120 be  appropiiuteqVto protect the' road on  Third street, near' the junction cf  Government street. That the sum of  .$400 be appropriated for ditching from  a point on Second street, near Hume's  warehouse, northwesterly to the corner of Boyle avenueand Victoria road,  thence westerly parallel "to Victoria  rond about 1300 ft.  On motion of Aid. Kilpatrick���������Aid.  Graham the report was adopted.!  Aid. Graham* introduced "Cemetery  By-Law No. 21." authorizing the acceptance nf certain lands for fhe purpose of a cemetery, It was read a  first, second and third tiinc,and passed  .upoii-tiiot:oii_oLAlds._Crage_T-Grahani._  The frontage tux question was then  opened by Aid. Kilpatrick, followed  Iiy" Aid.������ Wells who was decidedly  against the frontage tax system at all.  Before the aldermen had jangled long  enough to work themselves np to the  state of interest manifested at the last  meeting City Solicitor McCarter throw  a good deal of light on the subject by  informing them that they were working under the wrong procedure, as had  already been clearly pointed out bv  Aid. McKechnie at. this meeting. If  they hud asked him in fhe first place  what they really wanted to know he  could have .told them, but until personally attending this meeting, (having heen unavoidably absent at the  last one), he did not understvnd what,  they were fighling about. This had  a cooling olTect upon the city fathers,  and upon thu motion of Aid, Kilpatrick���������McKechnie the. whole, matter  was referred back to the committee  and city solicitor, for the preparation  of a new report to be in accordance  with nnd governed by ihu provincial  act. relating to such works. i  Mark Hyatt's account was accepted  at, the rale of $3.25 per day���������ten hours.  The signature ol the mayor to  cheques for the accounts presented at  the meeting previous ended thn evening's session a nd the council adjourned.  Messrs. Tapping. Nc-edhaiii and  Stamper were present.  Arrested in Vancouver on a Charge cf  Uttering-Worthless Cheques.���������He Was  Just Leaving For Seattle.���������The Case  Remanded For One Week.  Monday's Piovince contains an  account of Ihe arrest and appearance  in the Vancouver police court of D. G.  Cathcart on a charge of uttering a  number of worthless cheques on lhc  branch of the Imperial bank hero, lie  was anc-led on Monday morning  while seated in the train for Seal lie.  just as it was pulling out. The cheques  were givon in payment for a number  of purchases of wearing apparel,  including a gold watch and chain and  a luxurious travelling rug. One of  those from whom he had obtained  money by these means became suspicious and requested the police to  watch him with the result that lie  was arrested, lie pleaded not guilty  to tho charge and in explanation said  that he had disposed of bis business  to the Parsons Produce Co. with the  understanding thus ho was lo receive  !j)22S as soon as lhe business was  wound up. He issued the cheques in  question against this S22S and up to  the time he was arrested had no idea  that the money had not-been placed  to his credit. Tho magistrate adjourned thu case for a week, putting  bail at himself in $.*i00 and two sureties in 8250 each. When ariested  Cathcart had only .$! in his clothes.  There aro several parties in town here  who have been trying to locate him  for t lie past week or more, who will  now be able to communicate with him.  Following from the World says:���������  D. G. Cathcart, storekeeper of Revelstoke, assigned a fortnight ago to the  Putsons Produce Company and came  down to Vancouver. Here for a week  past he has been a high roller, paying  hack and hotel men as well as others  with checks on his account up country. These total $100 or more and being returned "no funds" .he was ariested while trying to escape to Seattle.  A remand for a week was oided at the  Police court.

The    Duncan    River    Mining    and  Development     Co.     intend    to   push'  briskly lhe work on  their  properties.  A very fine showing of ore is exposed.'  as a result of the  work  done.    Cabins  are   being   erected   for   sleeping and.  other     purposes     and   the   work   nf  development will be pushed  for all  it  is worth. ,  On   the   Guinea   Gold   Mines   Co.'s.  property there is a surface showing of  10 inches'  of   clean   steel   galena ancL  four feet of concentrates.     This property is being developed by a crosscut,  tunnel which  is  expected  to  tap  the.  vein underneath tliis surface showing'^  at a distance (if 00 feet.    - J. AV. West-"  fall, who is managing this property, is  very pleased with its appearance.  In the Sunshine tunnel, oat of an.  upraise 10 feet high by 5  feet long,  1G.  tons of ore were  taken.   Twenty-five  men are working on this property.  Several  thousand  dollars  worth  of  work will be done on the Silver Queen  during the coming fall and winter.   Aj  splendid showing of ore appeals in the. .*  drifts and crosscut on this property.    ��������� -'  Work on the Nettie L is progressing-,  favorably   and   it is expected before  long that the vein will be encountered.' \  J.

Later news from   lhe   Jeuny LindJ  would indicate that the new strike is.  oneof  the largest ever  tnadein  the  country.   The" lead   is about 14 feet -  wide and contains where it has-heen,  crosscut, two stringers of ore on either' --  wall   aggregating  2S inches- of solid'"  shipping ore.   - Further down'the lead  was opened iip and disclosed to view-,  15 "inches of lean galena.   No* assays*  have been made as yet.  but from  the  appearance oi. the ore  high  values in  silver and lead may be obtained,  H.  A.  Brown   returned   last night,  from a trip up to the SilverTipMining  Co.'s   property   at    the   head   of the  North Fork.    He su5's there is a showing of ore on the Copper Cliff of about.  nine inches of clean galena carrying,  copper,     Mr. Brown.says the showing  is very fine.  Thf> prospecting now being done on  the Glengarry .by means of the dia-_  mond drill has demonstrated .that at  one place in the vein there is 20 inches  of solid oie. "���������'  Another Nut for Joe to Crack.  Joseph Martin, ex-attorney-gencral  of Briiish Columbia, was suspended  by the benchers of the law society for  one week, tlie suspension to take  elfeet on October 1st, for practicing  champerty, This date nientioked was  chosen to enable Mr. Martin to appeal  from tliu decision of the benchcia to  the full court al.'ils September bittinir,  and thus have the courls pass on the  matter before the suspension takes  elfeot. There is somo doubt whether  thu old Knglish law prohibiting the  practice of champerty applies to  British Columbia.  %*#**-*-lf**4*4l*-***4r-***4Ht*l -a$ -^w������*w*iwwww������w^^  The Towser.

In   Japan."
���Things,    as
are so      different
Tilings   are,   hence'forward,   going   to
be a little less different. Today, as the
result of prolonged negotiations with
the principal governments of Europe,
the Japanese courts assume nut jurisdiction, both civil and criminal, over
foreigners.       In   that   fact   Is   i*   be
found,  perhaps,  the   most      practical
proof of     Western     recognition      of
Japan's  right  to be definitely placed
on the Western  and not the Eastern
level of  civilization.     -The   abandonment of those precautions in the way
of special jurisdiction which European
powers  find  necessary  for the      protection  ot the lives, liberty and property  of  their subjects      in Oriental
countries  is tantamount to  the      admission o��  Japan  to  a  piace  among
the civilized   powers  on, a footing of
absolute equality.  .'It is a      notable
and? unprecedented      departure;     but
there is no reason to fear that it will
be  regretted   by  the powers ���    which
have given it their sanction.
The report of the proceedings ol lhe
Dreyfus  court  martial  at Kennes    is
more like the- secondlast chapter of a
shilling   shocker    than '. the    prosaic
record       of     a     court'.,   of     justice.
T"~e   whole  history   of  "l'affaire"  has
a decidedly humorous complexion.and
were it not that the matter so dcep-
.ly affects Dreyfus-aud his family, its
"perusal would afford ample opportunity for enjoyment.    Some of the characters   in   the   play   .might' however
uinhia to Fort Simpson, thc northernmost part on the British Columbia
coast. lt would be a- great line for
thc snow  shed  contractors."
ino Express falls into a very natural mistake in imagining thnt the
farther north the greater the snow
fall. But the Canadian Pacific is
the most, northerly of the various
transcontinental railways of. North
America, and, every winter since it
has been built it has suffered lo."s
from snow thnn any other transcontinental road; oven the most southerly. While thc Northern Pacific, the
Union Pacific, and tlio Southern
Pacific, have been blocked with snow
for days and weeks the Canadian
Pacific trains have lieen running
merrily and regularly. The fact, is
that.the Canadian territory is north

We are now commencing  a  period  of the year when we have every reason  to   expect   considerable  wet weather  and our streets will become more and  more wretched   for pedestrians   until  the snow flies.    The council  has   now  been in ollice for six mouths and so far  nor. a foot of sidewalk  his  been laid.  While the light rages  between   front-  ugu   tax,   half   frontage   tax    or    no  frontage lux, citizens  and ratepayers  are marching  in   tliu   mud,   nnd  the  period   during   which   sidewalk   const ruction is usually carried on in   this  part of the world  is  rapidly  drawing  ton close.     It seems to  the IIi-:u.vr_.D  that,   seeing   that   the   half frontage  scheme is out  of court as   not  being  within tliu powers of  the  corporation  as provided   by  thc   Act.   and   as   to  build     any   sidewalk    altogether   by  frontage tax will require another long  period  of delay,   that the best thing  wliich the council  can  do  is  lo build  one sidewalk at   all  events with t.he  appropriation mndo for  it out  of the  genernl public works expenditure and  leave the question as to how the others  shall be   built   for  future  councils to  settle. The battle can bo fought out at  the polls at thu next municipal election, if it is thought worth  while,  but.  in the meantime there  will   be at  all  events ono comfortable  road for foot  passengers to  take  from  one  end of  town to another.

The Nelson lacrosse team played its  first match on the coast, at Vancouver  on Saturday afternoon. Among the  1.500 spectators were a good many  Westiiiinsteritcs, including most of  the members of the Westminster  lacrosse team, who went over for the  purpose of sizing up the up-country  players. They were not disappointed  in witnessing a very interesting nintch;  arid the score, four goals to two, is uu  indication that the home team did  not have things all their own way. Tn  fact, at one time, it, looked us if the  visitors were to win, but this thoy  could not accomplish, although they  played a plucky game.  Vancouver won the first goal in 7  minutes; the second in 0 minutes; tho  fourth in 7 minutes, and the sixth in  11 minutes; Nelson winning the third  and fiflh gunies iu 0 and -1 minutes,  respectively.

YOUNG,  August-Ith, ISM. by his agent  62-80 W. II. Pool.  There is a certain place which wc  are. told is paved with good intentions.  If our sidewalks in Revelstoke could  be built out- of the massive eloquence  of our local public orators, it would be  an easy matter to furnish every bylane  in town with these conveniences of  civilization. There are certain people  in this town who seem to imagine  that, no public meeting is complete  unless they have aired their opinions.  Tbe H_"i~Ai,ii is not aware that they  usually add anything of very material  value to'-fhc debute. In fart it is often  difiicult for lhc -ivciage intellect which  has not had the iocs tii liable ad vantage  of long years oi residence in this" place  to discover whnt. on earth thoy iiro  talking about at nil. It does not  appear that there, is any overwhelming  public demand for their oratory. In  fuel that the very certainty lhat if  there is a public meeting those inevitable old stundbys are perfectly sure  to inflict their eloquence upon it, deter  quito a number of people from ever  going near a public meeting here at  all. It. seems to thc Hehat.d that ii  is about time for these local Websters  und village Gladstones to taken tumble  Let. tbein consider their record its  prodigies of eloquence und giants of  debute us now complete anrl imperishable nnd take a  good   long  rest  from  A Serious Matter.  Some two weeks ago the Hkrald  pointed ont lhe necessity of something  being done towards lifting the telephone, wires hetween Thomson's Landing and Trout Lake City. The advice  has apparently been unheeded,'as  " Toma " writing lo t.he Trout Luke  Topic last issue says:  " It is a blessing thai, parties using  the road between Thomson's Lauding  and this place hnve not met with some  accident owing to the telephone wire  being down; not down on 'tbe������ground,  but just low enough to catch one by  the throat when on'horseback or on  the stage. I hear lots of swearing  nbout it and it.seems to me tho whole  thing could hu put. right, in lominiiles.  1 feel quite certain if Mr. Cowan knew  how dangerous thc wire is and the  risks he runs tin ough it. it would bo  UnciI at once.
