NELSON,  BRITISH  COLUMBIA, SATURDAY, MARCH  'IC>, 18<>S.  TWO   DOLLARS A YEAR.  SPECIAL   ASSIZES.  Davis,  the  Murderer of Dennis  Connors. Sentenced to be. Hanged.  Monday hist, was a memorable day, o\v-  ing lo the holding oi a court of special  assise, before Mr, Justice Irving. The  crowd iu attendance at tht;opening of the  court ' was very large, special jntei-est,  being excited in the- case of regina vs.  Davis, alias Doyle, alius Sullivan, for the  murder, of Dennis Connors at*. Kuskonook,  ou Sunday, February 13. This wa.s the  first ease-of capital crime coming before  Mr. .Justice Irving since his elevation to  the bench. Among those present at the  court, apart from the members of the local legal profession, were Messrs. E. P.  Davis and Hamilton, of Vancouver; P.  McL. LAirin and J. Abbott, of Rossland ;  A. Whealler, of Ka-lo; JYI. L., Grimmett;  of Saudon; and A. Sutton, of Grand  Forks.  Upon lhe assembling of the court, Re  gistrar  Simpkins  read   the proclamation  authorizing the sitting. The petit, jury  was challenged by deputy-sheriff Robin-  son and found lo be present.. Then followed, the grand jury : G. II: Robson, G.  Stanley, W. A. Wilson, A. I_. Retallack,  IL. R. Oamoron. A. Lawrence, C. W. West,  M. DesBrisay, A. Malone, J"). McArthur, A.  A..Turner, A. Pe.rland, II. J. Evans W.  N. liolfe, \V. J. Quinlati- and J. Ban-  uerman. Mr. Lletallack was elected foreman, and the jury was then sworn.  His lordship, in addressing the grand  jury, congratulated them upon the light  calendar before him of criminal cases. lie  ' then took up the charge of murder  ~ against Davis, explaining the meaning of  the term, which embraced both intent  aud actual deed. The question of self-defence oi' irritation were matters for the  petit jury only. There is no right for  any one to take the law into his own  hands at any time, though the law excuses the same at times. But, apparently, from the evidence, there was no question of necessity or self-defence to be entertained. There were other matters, no  doubt, to be brought in in the presentment of the jury, and he would urge  them to dispose of it at once.  The jury retired, aud in ten-minutes returned with a true bill against the accused. His lordship thanked the jury,  and told them they could meet at their  own convenience to consider their presentment. One matter he would urge on  ,them was the poor condition of the room  and its drafty nature. The jury would  not be discharged till close of assizes.  Davis,.'the accused, was then brought  up, and pleaded not guilty to the charge  of murder. He was exceedingly nervous  and fully realized his position. He stated  he had no one to defend him, but was  ready' for his trial. W. A. Macdonald,  Q. O, stated that-there was additional  evidence to be brought in. J. T. Aikman  consented to act as prisoner'scoine-el. and  serin ed adjournment of case to Tuesday  so as to .acquaint himself with the facts.  Throughout the proceedings the court  was continually. dist urhed by men moving  about and the repeated orders for "Hats  oil"." Tlie bench had to speak to onlookers and threaten.punishment.  . On the court assembling Tuesday the  petit jury was formed of J. J. Walker. H.  B. Perk-.' G. Demairie. ,T. Smart, S. C. Pur-  kis D. MacOreath, T. L. Da vies, D. Curtis,  AV. Wilson, J. McAlman. G. Beer and A.  IT. Clement, foreman. Upon being duly  sworn, they were addressed by W. A,  Macdonald, QC, wboenlaiged upon the  gravity of the case before them. He felt  confident.they would bring in a right verdict. The facts of the case were most  simple, the evidence beinfr most direct  and not circumstantial. He then touched  on the incidents leading up to the murder  on February 13, and wound up by asserting that it. was by no means.a.case of fine  distinction. He. had a duty to perforin  and so had the jury, and he would leave  the case in their hands.  L. R. Forbes, tlie constable at Kusko-  "nook, was the first witness called, and endorsed his testimony given at the pre-'  liminary hearing. Shown plan of barroom, he identified itas correct. Nothing  new was elicited in his cross-examination.  Dr. Hawkey testified to the, holding of  the post-mortem, and identified the bullet  shown as the one. taken from Connors'  body. He exhibited on his own person  the course of the bullet on the body of the  deceased. In answer to the judge, witness  said the deceased must have been lower  than the man shooting. Pressed by the  defence, he said it wa.s his opinion only,  and the course of the bullet might have  been thrown that way by striking a button or any hard substance.  \V. Kyie was the chief witness of the  crown, but before he could testify the  witness stand had to be moved in front of  the jury box, as the acoustic properties of,  the room are so bad. Mr. Macdonald also)  addresssed the onlookers and urged them  as men to keep quiet. Kyle went over  tlie ground in the same manner as at the  previous trial, and cross-examination  could not shake him. He marked the  relative positions of those present at the  shooting on the plan of the house shown  him. He was perfectly sober on February  13r.h and knew what he was doing. In  answer to the court's questioning, witness  said he had assisted iu carrying in Connors' body to the back room of bar after  the shooting, which he had seen.  A. 1-i'ick.son, the owner of the hotel in  which tlie shooting occurred, identified  the prisoner before him as.the man who  committed the deed. He went fully info  all details of the situation just previous  to the shooting, and explained the position of himself and the others a t the time, j  ."Witness was at; ihe foot of ihe stairway  leading overhead, and turned and saw  tlie shot fired.    He then  went up for his  bartender, and when he returned met  prisoner going out, and saw Connors fall  from the chair in which he was sitting.  Kvle came up to witness and remarked  '���He (the piisoner) shot him." Witness  saw no other revolver except that in prisoner's hand. The barroom was well  lighted at the time, and he saw that Connors' hands were loose. Cross-examined  by Mr. Aikman, witness stated that he  was somewhat, excited,at the time. Connors died in the back room. All present  were sober and everything wa.s in plain  sight.  At this juncture the grand jury made  their presentment, which follows:  To Mir. Ji'stioi. Irving: The grand  jurors for the county of Kootenay present  as follows :  1. We, congratulate your lordship upon  vour elevation to the bench, and trust,  that you may long fulfill the duties of  your position.  2. We bpg to draw your lordship's  attention to the condition of the court,  lions'- at Nelson. The accommodation  afforded is totally inadequate for the  judges, the jurors, the legal profession  and the public, and we trust that our  presentment in this matter may have due  weight with the government.  3. We have visited the new jail, and  are of the opinion that the discipline and  neatness prevailing" therein reflect credit,  on the warden and his officers. We endorse certain changes and improvement  suggested by the warden, instancing:  A change in the location of the condemned cell.  The drainage of the surface water from  around the walls, which at present renders the basement extremely damp, as  well as sundry other miuor changes suggested by him.  We rlo not, approve of tlie present .system of separate locks on the cell doors,  which, in case of fire, might well jeopardize the lives of prisoners.  We recommend the adoption of the  usual system of a lever bolt, which, on an  emergency, enables all cell doors to be  opened at once.  In connection with the court house, jail  and government property, we would suggest that the present unsightly fence be  removed, and that the ground be graded  and improved to give the property a decent appearance.  -1. Our attention has been drawn to the  unsafe condition of the government  wharf at Nelson, which has already  caused the loss of several horses engaged  in freighting, thereon, and in its present  state is a standing menace to life aud  property.  5. We trust that no time will be lost in  establishing a laud registry office in the  city of Nelson.  0. We would respectfully recommend  that frequent sittings of the, supreme  court be held in this district, as the importance of matters in dispute, in our  opinion, warrants such a course being  adopted.  7. In conclusion we agree with your  lordship that it is a matter of congratulation that so little crime prevails in the  district, and .trust, that'such a satisfactory state of affairs may continue.  His lordship thanked the jury for their  kindly-congratulations for himself, and  assured them that he would see-that the  presentment was laid before the proper  authorities. If the people were desirous  of having frequent sittings of the court  here, something would have to be done to  the building,, which, was in bad shape.  Mr. Retallack was then excused from the  jury, so that he might return to his home  in Kaslo.  Erickson was then recalled, upon the  court re-assembling after luncheon, and  reiterated his'previous statements. He  had ordered prisoner out of his house the  evening of the 12th, as he did not like his  appearance.  A. W. Clair knew deceased personally,  and the prisoner only by sight. He testified to his actions on the fatal 13th, particularly with regard to the piisoner seeking to pick his pockets. Witness denied  being drunk at the time, though he was  drinking. He also marked positions of  people present at the shooting.on the  plan. Replying to defence, witness said  he was hot drunk, though full enough to  sing during the day. He could sing now  if he felt like it, find "It took a wise man  to sing at any time." Witness did not  know of anything that had happened  that the prisoner could construe to do the  shooting.  Charles Oleson wa.s the hist witness,  aud his evidence was entirely new, as filling in tlie time from when Davis left  Ei icksou's till he returned and dkl the  shooting. Witness had lived in Kusko-  nook some six weeks, but formerly resided  in Nelson. He was a miner by trade,  ihough tending bar at Erickson's. Saw  the prisoner on the 13ih' ult.. when he  came into Erickson's hotel /with others  and drank. He met1 prisoner agaiu on  the staircase of Muusen's boarding house  as he was going up to bed. He saw prisoner go to his bundle of blankets lying on  sitting room fioor, unroll them and take  therefrom a gun. It was close to midnight. Prisoner made some rude remark,  as he went out. Witness followed, anrl  when at the side door of Erickson's place,  heard the shot fired. He met a man coming out, but as it was dark he did not recognize him. Witness saw prisoner come  in again to Erickson's by side door, aud  saw that Connors wa.s dying.  The case for the crown concluded, Mr.  Aikman addressed the jury for the defence, pointing out differences of time  and positions' iu the testimonies, pis-  agreements also existed in the markings  of the plans. He believed Connors had  said or done something to prisoner to excite his tinger, and that deceased must  have tried to pull a gun on him. He  pleaded with the jury to be merciful, as  he did not deny the shooting, but to re  turn it manslaughter.  Davis, though not sworn, then testified  in much the same manner as at his previous trial, a.nd sairl Connors was trying  to do him up, and had previously pulled a  kiiife on him. His name was Davis and  he did not know how Doyle anrl Sullivan  were applied to him. Fully one-third of  Nelson knew him. He had been .eighteen  years in lhe west, anrl had worked three  years in Spokane. He was a timber man  by trade and had been in charge of sections on the Great Northern railway. He  had no rebuttal evidence to offer, and  was clearly overmatched by the prosecution.  Mr. Macdonald made but a short address, and showed that prisoner's statements were not borne out by facts. On  the contrary the jury had the sworn evidence of several witnesses, who were not.  at all likelv to perjure themselves or forswear a fellow being's life away. Technically speaking, the-pt isnner had admitted  his guilt, anrl had not, tried to deny the  witnesses'statements. The prisoner had  gone to commit the deed, and did rlo it  with a vile epithet on his lips. In speaker's opinion it wa.s a clear case of murder.  His lordship, in charging the jury,  again explainer! the crime,of murder���'and  showed the difference from manslaughter.  Drink did not excuse from crime, but. the  prisoner was not drunk. The provocation to commit the deed was slight, but  while the law allowed provocation under  certain circumstances, it did not not as a  cloak to revenge. But the prisoner's plea  of provocation would not stand.'- The  jury were not to try the case, but to  bring in a verdict in accordance with the  evidence, giving the prisoner the advantage of all doubts.  The jury retired, and in 12 minutes returned with a unanimous verdict against  the prisoner of murder. Davis, on being  asked if he had anything to say, remarked in a perfectly cool manner that  he supposed that a "debt had got to be  paid," but he thought circumstantial evidence should not count. His lordship  said tiiere was no circumstantial evidence.  Connors did not have his hand on his hip,  there was no grudge or quarrel. He was  perfectly satisfied witn the verdict.  " Yon were unfortunate in having the revolver in your bundle, and you were unfortunate in taking it down." He would  spare his feelings all he could* "You  committed a fearful crime, and your punishment must be equally great. The sentence of this court is, therefore, that you  lie taken to the place from whence vou  came, and be there confined until the 22nd  day of April, when you will be taken to  the gallows and there hanged by the neck  until you are dead ; and may the Lord  have mercy on your soul." His lordship  was greatly moved, and could scarcely  utter the sentence. Davis was unmoved,  -aying: "Thank you, c my lord. I am  much, obliged." The prisoner was then  taken to the condemned cell, where he is  now confined. He remarked on the way  thither that he would uot run away.  Wednesday's sitting of the court was a  tedious one, there being -a constant  stream of motions and ���adjournments.  The first case-called was that of IT. D.  AIi-Lellan vs. the Reco Mining Co. for  $5,000 damages for injuries received by a  rock falling on him. W. A. Macdonald  appeared tor the plaintiff, and E. P.  Davis, Q. C, and M. L. Grimmett. for the  defence. A common jury was selected  and refused, and then a special jury,  which was afterwards discharged, but  not before they objected to the pay tendered for their services. The law permitted them .$-1 for two days, bub they  held for more and J. M. Harris gave it to  them. After arguing Wednesday morning for a special jury, the case wa.s postponed till Thursday morning, when it  was settled out ol court. J. M.��� Harris  gave McLellan $275 and costs, whicli  amounted to another $275. .  Daniels vs. Johnson was a criminal case  of seduction���Messrs. Macdonald and  Bowes appearing for tie parties. The  plaintiff formerly'resided in _Kaslo anrl  had been seduced under promise of marriage. She was present in court with her  child. Johnson did not appear, anrl his  bail of $1,000 was escheated, as well as his  sureties', C. Nelson anrl J_. Cummings, for  $500 each. A bench warrant was issued  for Johnson's arrest, ami after several adjournments of the court, he was 'arrested  late Wednesday night and lodged in the  provincial jail, where he was allowed to  weep over his shortcomings. Before the  last adjournment on this case both petit  anrl grand jurors were paid off.  The only case really disposed of on  Wednesday wa.s Villeiieuve vs. Ha una, in  which judgment was given for $290 anrl  costs, to be .made up on county court  scales.  Court re-assembled on Thursday morning at 10.15 o'clock. Towiisend vs. Ilew-  ett, A. Sutton and W. A. Macdonald appearing, was the first case called. The  litigants are a brewing company in Grand  Forks, anrl each blames the other for bad  business habits, supported by numerous  affidavits. Plaintiff applied I'or an injunction restraining defendant, and the appointment of W. Bentley a.s receiver of  the firm. Order marie for a receiver, to  be appointed by judge Forin. Costs of  'application reserved. Trial between parties .set for supreme court here on April  15, hut the court suggested the settlement  of the case outside.  Kelly vs. Hall Mines was advanced a  stage,' Messrs. Elliott anrl Bowes representing. Plaintiff applies for an injunction restraining defendants from proceeding with the expropriation of land for the  tramway from the Silver King, whicli  passes over the ground of the Dandy and  two other claims owned by the plaintiff,  as well as townsiteof Prerlericton. Plaintiff offered to settle out of court, but refused lhe. nominal sum offerer I. It was  then left to arbitrators,  but defendants  raised   objections.      Case   adjourned   at  luncheon.  Creel man vs. Clarke occupied the'afternoon session, with Messrs. Koriu and Sutton appearing. Plaintiff applied to clear  title'ot'a mineral claim and to restrain defendants from working the ground. The  trouble aro.se over tlie location of ihe  Boys' claim in Kettle river .district.  Clarke localed it, and afterwards, finding  his stakes were too small, located it for  his wife, with same name. At tlie terminal ion of the first .year of initial location, J. Fox, acting for plaintiff Creelinan,  relocated ihe ground as the Little Pittsburg.   Both parties have done assessment.  defendant   for   two  years   anrl   plaintiff  one.    Considerable evidence was taken in  the case.   Mr. Justice Irving,said the case  was a simple one,  yet he  must reserve  judgment;  -..Court  then  adjourned  to 10.30 Friday  morning.  At the opening of the court yesterday  morning, his lordship announced that he  had made up his judgment in lhe Creel-  'luan vs. Clarke case, and would deliver  same ou April 15, wi-hing iu the-mean-j  time to compare same with reports given |  by other judges.  Daniels vs. Johnson was announced to  come up before judge Forin, when defendant will elect for speedy trial. u'  Kelly vs. Hall Mines occupied all day  yesterday, aud was finally postponed till  April 15.  The assizes then closed, Mr. Justice Irving announcing that he would be in Nelson on April 15, to hold special supreme  court sittings.  Last night the Nelson-Slocan bar tendered his lordship a complimentary dinner at the Hotel Hume, where a most congenial time was spent.  KETTLE   RIVER   RAILWAY.  Same Forces now Opposing D. C. Corbln's Extension as In the year 1891.  Last  week  someone in Victoria sent a  telegram.to the Rossland Miner (the same  telegram appeared in  the Nelson Minei),  in which the people of Nelson were censured for giving expression to their views  on a question of great interest to the people of a  neighboring district.   The telegram   was  probably  "inspired"  by   the  same   influences   that    "inspired,"   like  utterances in IS91, when the people of Lhe  Kootenay Lake country were fighting for  a railway that would not be operated by  the Cauadian Pacific.    The people of the  Koolenay Lake couutry won  their fight,  notwithstanding the "inspired" protests  of boards of trade on the Coast.   Has the  development of the country been retarded  or have. the business interests of either  the province or the dominion suffered by  that  victory?    The  cities  of  Rossland,  Nelson, Kaslo and Sandon and the dozen  smaller     towns     Scattered     throughout  Southern Kootenay,  supported,  as  they  are, by the thousands of men employed in  mines and smelters, is the answer.    Can it  be refuted ?   The mail.-.who gave southern  Kootenay  railways  that forced the  Canadian Pacific to compete with him is  willing to place Southern Yale in a like  position, and he is fighting the battle of  1801  over again.   The  people of   Nelson  aided him in'1891, when their own interests were involved ; and they are aiding  him now when the interests of neighbors  are at stake.   The people of Nelson have  not  been  in the habit of sneezing when  the people of "Victoria took snuff, nor are  they likely to fall into that habit.  WEEK'S   EXPORTS   T^TAL   $86,560.  No  The passage by the legislative assembly  of a resolution praying the house of commons to refuse a charter to Gorbin's  Boundary Creek railway is only a bid for  the support.of the Canadian Pacific at  tlie coming provincial election. The Turner government is nothing if not a truck-1  ler, and it is as willing to truckle to a railway company as to a coal baron.  Value  If the members of the railway committee of the house of commons were-a ware  of the fact that 2328 voters in districts  that would be in-no way affected by the  building of a-railway into the Boundary  Creek country have ten members in the.  legislative assembly (all voting in.favor  of the resolution), while the 2107 voters in  the districts that would be benefited by  the railway when built have but three  members (all of whom opposed tlie resolution), they would pay no heed to any  communication on railway matters coming from the legislative assembly of British Columbia. The last revised voters' list  (1801) gives Esquimalt-151. voters, with two  members in the legislative assembly:  Cowichari-Alberni 510, with two members-  South Nanaimo 250, with one member;  North Victoria 330, with one member (all  on Vancouver Island); Cariboo 150, with  two members; East Lillooet 100, with one  member; and West Lillooet 120, with one  'member (all north of the main line of the  Canadian Pacific railway). The same list  gives East Vale (the district in wliich the  Boundary Creek country is situate) 1022  voters, and it has one member in the legislative assembly; the north riding of West  Kootenay (in which BossJand is situate)  550. with one member; and the south  rid-  Shipments Shown this Week from the  Slocanvia Kaslo.

Wa.s   ex-speaker   Higgins   sincere   last  spring in his bitter opposition to the passage of the act granting a charter and subsidy to the Cassiar Central Railway Company ?   We doubt it.   If he was si nee r--  in that stand, why, is he now so bitterlv  opposing the granting of a charter for a  railway that woidrl help develop Southern Yale: a. charter that does not carry  with it an acre of land or a dollar in subsidy?    Was Mr. Higgin-7 sincere when he  cave as a reason   for  breaking with  the  Turner government   that  he   could   not  support an outfit that wa.s so servile tn  ! monopolists   like   the   Dunsmuirs ?      lie  could not have been, for today he is willing to place the yoke on the necks of Unpeople   of   Southern    Yale,   and   compel  them to be mere dependents of a railway  company that has never shown a disposition to share its profits with anyone in  Canada, however liberal it may" be to the  holders of its shares and bonds resident  in France, Germany nnd Belgium.  Tlie president of the Board of Trade of  Victoria resents the insinuation that the  action of the board, of which he is president, in opposing the Boundary Creek  railway charter, was other than mature  judgment after calm discussion. A board  of trade, whose members were not aware  that theie was* a Kootenay country until  the fall of 1895, and then only on " inspiration " from a wandering newspaper coi-  respondent. should not be so " touchy."  The Boundary Creek people may not  get the railway that they want as soon as  they should have it; but perhaps the  politicians- who are opposing them may  not get what they want at the coining  election. Mr. Turner and Mr. Higgins  and Mr. ITelmcken may be sent into retirement by the common people, who aie  sincerely tired of being governed by men  who are only too willing to do the bidding  of monopolists.

MARCH -(!, 18!>S  The I - am loop.*-- Standard, one of the numerous  organs .subsidized   by   the   local  government7 to apologize, i'or its mistakes,  undertakes   to   defend   the   coal   baron.--  froin taxation.    It places coal iu the catalogue   as  a   necessity   of   life,  and,  like  bread-stuffs, should be  made a.s cheap a-  possible  to the consumer.    Coal   mining,  the Standard avers, is a young industry  aud should be encouraged.    Were a tax  imposed  the article  would become more  expensive,   and   the   mines . might   shut  down   to   evade   the   tax.    These   arguments are most vague, serving rather to  please  the Dunsmuirs  than  to help thi-  populace.    By  the same  reasoning gold,  silver,  lead and  copper,  the products ol  the mines of West Kootenay, should al.se  increase in value by reason of the taxes  fcl_ey have to bear.    Up to date this has  not occurred.     The  assertion  that  coal  mining is a  young  industry is far from  correct, as it was in working shape before  confederation.    Quartz, mining, as carried  on in this district, is the young industry,  and  the government shows its appreciation of the situation by taxing it in every  shape and form.    The Dunsmuirs are the  leading coal miners, in the  province, and.  as the bosom friends of those in power,  have so far escaped taxation, and will, so  long as Mr. Turner is left in..  Vancouver  Isl.aud coal  mines will never shut down  with the  present  markets open to their  products, and present values obtain.    By  confederation terms the island'mines' will  escape taxation, but future workings in  Crow's Nest would be liable.   It is thi>-  unfair discrimination  between  man and  man,   though   mining oil   different   products,  and   in   different  Idealities,   that  causes complaint and lays the government  open to censure.    If the quartz mines and  miners are taxed  in   Kootenay,  so also  should be the coal workings on the Island.  By a vote of 10 to lithe government  last Thursday voted  down Mr.  CottrmV  resolution ���:' "That, in the opiuiou of thi-  77 House, laborers in mines should not, as  " such,  be required to take out  miners'  licenses."   The mover has advocated this  step  for years,  and  it has .always  been  similarly received.    Hon. Mr. Turner, in  speaking  to  the question,   affirmed that  the Worker in the quartz mines did not  desire the repeal  of the statute.    This is  untrue, as anyone can  tell.    Mr. Turnei  has but to look at the nature of the vote  taken  on  the resolution  to  realize  how  mistaken  he is.    Those directly affected  >  by the workings of the act to a man voted  for the resolution, and  those who feel it  least .opposed it.    In other  words,  those  members dominated by the  Dunsmuir influence voted as dictated to by the powers  behind the throne,  and  not according to  justice.    It is surprising  to see the chief  exponent of labor theories  in  the house  ���Mr. Braden, of Victoria���a man elected  by the working classes, voting with the  government against his fellows.    Mis intelligence must be on a par with the posi-.  tiou.he occupies.    By this vote Mr. Turner has put another obstacle where it will  do damage to his cause at the next elections.    Coi_. Baker, on Thursday last, presented his annual report on mines. The  returns are most satisfactory, showing a  large increase in the output and values of  both quartz anrl placer mines. Particularly is this the case with West Kootenay.  W. A. Carlyle, as provincial mineralogist,  is the authority for the bulk of the report, and he has covered hi.s ground much  more intelligently than past reports issued by the minister of mines have evidenced. This district has been given considerable space, antl a strong point lias  been advanced in  the statement of divi  dends paid. There is one matter upon  which difference exists, and .that is the  value of the minerals*exported from Kootenay during 1897. Mr. Carlyle's figures  cover the whole year to December 31, and  total $(3,7(55,703. He relies upon  the returns furnished by the mine  owners under the metallurgical.,  mines act. Taking the figures furnished  by the Nelson custom house, which are at  once more accessible and up to date, Mr.  Carlyle's returns show a large undervaluation. They are : Via Nelson, total value  of mineral exports, $7,013,314: via Revelstoke, $719,132, or combined, $1,5(50,773  more than represented iu the government  blue book. Outside parties noticing the  discrepancy existing between the figures  furnished by the blue book aud those  given in the press, taken from the customs  returns, will be perplexed, and naturally  accuse the press of unreliability. But, as  Mr. Carlyle says in his report, "figures  -peak for themselves." c  Sir William Van Horne, as president  of the Canadian Pacific railway, appeared  before the railway committee of the house  of commons last week to urge against the  granting of a charter to Mr. Corbiu's extension into the Boundary country.    He  had a weak case to present and  found a  strong opposition to his wishes.    No government is likely to refuse a charter to a  road  that asks for  no   subsidy  or land  grant, and i.s to benefit a large section of  country by giving it the, initial aud competitive line of railway.    Of this, Sir AAril-  liara,  no  doubt,  has   become convinced,  and the support given him by the fossils  in the Victoria board of trade counts for  naught.    The C. P. tl. are seeking an entry inio Spokane, and are endeavoring to  control the Washington Central road and  ifs privileges to obtain  the desired goal.  Were the neighboring state to adopt sir  William's tactics, he would find great difficulty in promotiug his enterprise.    As it  is, the business men of Spokane, and the  people generally in Washington are, most  desirous  that  the  C. P.  R. should come  into their territory, as a strong competition in railways is always to be encouraged.   A   similar   argument   affects   the  Boundary country-    West Kootenay has  profited by competition and the Boundary  camp is not likely to suffer by having a  like advantage.  Mr. Justice Irving had the sympathy  of the court with him ou Tuesday in the  trying ordeal he underwent in pronouncing the sentence of* death, for the first  t.ime in his exalted judicial position, upon  a fellow being.    His lordship was greatly  moved and realized his solemn duty more  vividly   indeed   than   did   the   unhappy  prisoner in the dock.   To the credit of his  lordship be it said,  that   he   conducted  himself with strict impartiality, charging  the jury in au intelligent and fair-minded  manner, giving  the prisoner the advantage of every  possible doubt, and iu his  final  address  to the poor wretch before  him   mercifully   spared   his  feelings   by  being brief and speaking in a most sympathetic tone.    To pronounce the sentence  of death on a man is a duty few would  care  to  fulfil, the  more especially when  i.he unfortunate i.s about the same age as  the judge���in the very prime of life and  strength.    Duty is at times most disagreeable.   For his initial case of this nature,  the newly elected Justice acquitted himself well,  fully justifying the confidence  reposed in him in his elevation.

The imports for February last  were $()_(),()()(), a.s against $111,000 in 1S07 ;  and the collections SMS,000 as compared  with S 102,000. Mining activity in AVest  lvootenay and the Klondyke boom are the  chief causes of increase. For the last  eight .months of the fiscal year the increase in imports throughout the Dominion was $-7,000,000, realizing an excess in  duties over last yenr of $1,'138,000. A sur-  ulus is expected at Ottawa for 1808, something often heard of in British Columbia  but never seen.  It is a matter of congratulation that  the calendar of criminal cases brought  before Mr. Justice Irving at the assizes  here this week was particularly light.  Only one case of capital interest was  docketed, that of regina vs. Davis, alias  Doyle or Sullivan, for the murder of Den  nis Connors at Kuskonook, on February  13.   The evidence against the accused was  conclusive,  and   he  wa.s  sentenced to be  hanged ou April 22.    Crime of a violent  nature  is  fortunately  rare in this great  mining camp, this being the second case  only of murder since the opening of the  country.    To the lovers of peace and order and the loyal subjects of Her Majesty  generally, it is a source of pride that the  machinery of  law and justice in British  Columbia moves so quickly and decisively,  ensuring speedy  punishment to   the  offender and maintaining order to society.  Capital   punishment  is  a stern necessity  for the repression of vice and the protection of the lives and property of the people.   It is  to   be'  hoped,  however,   that  many years may elapse ere the eriinina"  records of the county seat ot Nelson regis  ter a similar crime.  bringing in supplies, and that while their  product is practically excluded from the  United States, lumber is brought into the  province in unfair competition. The action of the legislature is in keeping with  the recent agitation on the same subject  in Ontario; where similar conditions existed. Apart from the admitted justice  of the legislature's resolution, there i.s a  strange antipathy being shown this session by the house to and on everything  dealing with the American -republic,  which is not a desirable feeling to cultivate. Local mercantile jealousy oyer the  Klondyke outfitting business should not  be permitted to interfere with the amicable relations existing between Canada  and the United States.  AND DEALERS IX  Fresh Fruit, Vegetables, Fish, Oysters, Live and Dressed Poultry,  Game, Smoked Meats, Ete.    Baker Street, Nelson.  By a unanimous vote, the legislature on  Friday adopted a resolution, asking the  dominion government to increase the  duty on lumber aud shingles coming into  British Columbia from the United States,  in order to place the lumbering industry  upon an ecpiality with the mills operating  on the other side of the line. Mill owners  complain they have no compensating protection   for duties   imposed   on  them   iu  Tr-IK grand  to  the  court  their  jury, m their presentment  at this week's assizes, did  well in calling attention to government  shortcomings respecting the inadequate  accommodations of the court house, the  need of the land registry office here, the  dangerous condition of the wharf, and  the necessity of improvements at the provincial gaol. The court house, in particular, requires prompt attention, a.s the disadvantages of the court room are many  and pronounced, having been built when  the city and district were iu their infancy.

TUB MAVOR AXD COUNCIL OR THE  Oi'"- Nklson : Gentlemen, In eompli-  with ,your instruc_ioi_.s, J beg hereto  submit the following report on  the question  of a  permanent pavement  for Baker street.  The different   kinds  of   pavements  in  general use iu the cities of America are ns  follows:    1. Stone   block   pavements.    2.  Cobble   or   rubble  stone   pavements.    A.  Macadam.     *!. Sheet   asphalt.     :">. Brick.  0. Wood.  The following data will give a good idea  of the comparative use of the different  kinds of pavements in use in fifty-one of  the principal cities in America, and also  the average cost of each pavement in  these-same cities : .  Por  A\  -. Cost  Cent.  Per  So. Yd.  S 2 Ti  .. ,.     22.1  .1 00  'A. -.lacadain            "          ..'.  ..  2S.'A  1 12  ���1. Wood      11.1  1  11       S2  ,,2.75  (i. Brick       1.7  2 00  Asphalt and brick pavements *ire coming into more general use lately, however,  replacing wood pavements mostly.  A stone block pavement is very rough,  very noisy and very dirty, as well as being very expensive. Its u*-e is only advisable on streets with exceptionally heavy  traffic, its durability recommending its  use in such cases. I would not recommend  its use here.  Brick pavements���a.s brick suitable for  paving purpose.-! -is- no. obtainable here  and would have to be brought long distances���would be very costly, and for  that reason, undesirable.  Asphalt payements are. very popular in.  America at present, and ate being put  clown in great quantities in eastern cities.  They are very durable and clean and .add  greatly to the appearance-of a street.  Their use must, however, be limited to  streets with a very flat grade on account  of being so slippery wheu wet.  This pavement requires the use of six  inches of concrete for a founthitiou, which  will make it a very expensive pavement  here, this item alone adding fifty cents  per square yard to the average cost down  east. An asphalt pavement for Baker  street would probably cost a bout $8.50 per  square yard of pavement.  Before using this pavement ou Baker  street it will be necessary to have all  sewer and water connections put, in ou  the street, as it ruins this pavement to  have openings made through it. For  many reasons, I do not think it advisable  to put down this pavement on Baker  street at the present time.  Macadam pavements. This pavement,  as will be seen from the preceding statement, is the one most generally used in  the fifty-one largest.cities in America. In  the following cities it is very largely used :  St. Louis has 295 miles of city streets  paved with it; Chicago, 220; Milwaukee,  201; Boston, 179; Louisville, 13G; Cincinnati, 12(5; Providence, IIS. In London,  England, there is over'1.800 miles of city  streets with macadam pavements, in use  at the present time. *  The reason for it being so readily  adopted is that most places can easily secure suitable stone within a very reasonable distance, so that a good pavement  can be laid at a very reasonable cost.  There is no place better situated in this  respect than Nelson, as the very best  stone for this purpose has to be moved in  grading certain of the city streets, aud by  the use of a rock crusher this material can  be made into road metal at a very low  cost.  At the preseut time I think that this  pavement will be the most satisfactory  pavement for Baker street, aud can be  put in at very small cost, probably not exceeding $1.00 a square yard.  This pavemeut can readily be opened  and repaired, but, of course, for any pavement it is desirable to have as many of  the water and sewer connections as possible made before putting in anything permanent as a pavement.  There are a great many different ways  of making macadam roads, but the best  macadam road is generally conceded to  be what i.s commonly called the "Telford  macadam." That is a foundation of large  stone from six to eight inches in thickness, covered witli from four to six inelies  of broken stone varying in si/.e from 21 to  1" inches in diameter: this to be again  covered with some binding material sucli  a.s disintegrated smelter slag or gravel,  the material to be put on in layers tinrl  thoroughly compacted by rolling. My  estimate is based on a pavement of this  kind.  To give the best results this roadway  during construction should be rolled with  a twelve to fourteen ton .steam road roller, but very good results can be got from  Four feet of shipping ore has been struck  in the 250-foot level of the Dundee, near  Ymir.  April 12 is the day set for the annual  meeting of the Bright Prospects Gold Mining, and Development Co. in this city.  The capital stock of $1,000,000 is to be reduced one-half.

The construction of such tunnel  will be of incalculable benefit aud advantage  to the mines now' being opened up;  and developed, situate upon the said Red  mountain,  as it  will  afford  a  means of  draining  the underground   workings   of  thesaid mines, also affording air to the  same, and ot providing a convenient and  inexpensive way of conveying ore from  the underground  workings  of   the   said  mines to points  of shipment.
