A  ^  '*s  ���1\  NELSON,  BRITISH   COLUMBIA,  SATURDAY,   MAY   28, 1.898.  '   'KOOTENAY  Has   a    Mineral   Ou!put    of   Upv/nrc's   of  Million     Dollars    Every    MoMh  In  The   Year  TWO   DOLLARS A YEAR.  Cr  CITY   COUNCIL   MEETING-.  <S> ���-  Money By-Laws will be Submitted to Ratepayers on June 9th.  At the meeting ol' the city council held  Monday afternoon a communication was  read from A. 11. Buchanan, president of  tho Nelson floating Club, and others, asking the council to make a cut through the  small hill at the loot of .'Josephine street,  so that an1 approach may be had to the  club's (loat at the foot of that street. The  communication was referred tothe public  works committee with power to look into  the question of water front rights.  A. Ferland and other property owners  had a petition before the council asking  for a three-foot sidewalk from lot f> in.  block Si) to lot 12 in block S(\ on Carbonate  street. Jt went to the public works committee.  The four money by-laws, Waterworks  Extension, Cemetery, Electric Light and  Sewerage Extension were put through  their final stages, and will be submitted  to the ratepayers for their approval or rejection on Thursday, .June Dtli. .Copies of  these by-laws may be seen on the third  page ot this issue.  On motion of alderman Hillyer, seconded  by alderman Malone, the council recommended George Luther Lennox as district  registrar lor the land registry office to be  opened in this city.  The city clerk was appointed returning  officer and J. Keith tt.eid deputy returning officer for the voting upon the four  money by-laws on Thursday, June 9th.  The ratepayers in the east wa.rd will vote  at the city hall, and those of the west  ward at the office of J. Keith Keid.  The following accounts were passed :  work on Mruc'lf   ask the attendants o. the hospital to wait  on such a patient as Smith. The result of  this was that the city council was obliged  to take some steps for the relief of Smith.  When Dr. G. A. B. [[all, medical superintendent, was seen upon the matter he  disclaimed any sympathy with the position taken by .treasurer Clements. He  said that it had been decided between  himself and the president of the society  to admit Smith, and that the patient  would have been admitted had not the  friends of Smith, rebuffed by' the reply of the treasurer, made other arrangements.  The statement of Dr. Hall may absolve  the management of the hospital from  blame in the matter, but it docs not help  the case of treasurer Clements. The hospital society is supported by grants from  the provincial revenue and by public subscriptions. It-should therefore be open to  the public, and it is not for any director  to draw the color line with respect to patients. The director who lays down the  proposition that no colored man shall be  admitted into a iiospital supported by  public funds should be fired.  KELLIE'S   TRUCK   ACT.

On motion of alderman Hillyer the city  clerk was instructed to correspond with  t'io ��sp.ve!,>i.',.h<'cip'(p<1c and secure a rate per  week for the care of at least ten patients  during a period of twelve months.  The council authorized tho acting  mayor to .purchase a railway ticket to  Calgary for a man namedI."itman who  was in destitute circumstances.  The Opposition's Railway Policy.  The members of the opposition  made a  great record  in  railway  legislation this  session.' .They made a  fairly successful  fight   against   tlie   Turner government's  policy of granting purely speculative  railway charters, by which different sections of the province were placed at the  mercy of hungry charter speculators. As  the result of their fight they cut down  the time limit in all railway charters to  something like a reasonable time for the  construction of the roads, and in each  aud every instance inserted a security  clause, in the charters for the performance  of a certain amonut of work at once, as a  guarantee of good faith on the part of the  charterers. They also caused the anti-  Ohinese and Japanese clause to be inserted into all railway charters, and forced  the government to insert a similar clause  into the $5,000,000 railway loan act, by  which any company receiving financial  aid from the government shall be debarred from employing Chinese or Japanese upon their construction work. Is  there an elector who will not say that  this is a change for thebetter?  Tlie Troubles of Pi'ovincial Officials.  Police magistrate Crease spent the  greater part of Wednesday afternoon in  endeavoring to ascertain whether W. P.  Robinson, deputy sheriff, was guilty of  swearing at E. T. H. Simpkins, deputy  registrar. The evidence of E. T. H. Simp-  kins, deputy registrar, was that the  deputy sheriff bad called him a damned  little swindler and other objectionable  names with a profane emphasis. This  evidence was supported to a certain  extent by one credible witness. The accused admitted that he said that the  deputy registrar was swindling people,  but he denied having made use of the profane emphasis complained of. and also of  calling the other objectionable names.  John Miles, the official dog-catcher, also  gave evidence to the effect that the deputy sheriff had made use of no .profane  language. For the privilege-of haying  eased his mind, by expressing his opinion  of the deputy registrar publicly, the  magistrate assessed the deputy sheriff  $10. It is said that the ease will be  appealed. .    The Case of "Boss" Smith.  The refusal of A. H. Clements to admit  old Boss Smith into the Kootenay Lake  General Hospital lias created considerable  stir among the subscribers to the funds of  the hospital society. When alderman  Hillyer heard of the helpless condition of  old man Smith he interviewed treasurer  Clements upon the subject of his admission to the hospital. Clements is reported  to have said that he would not consent to  the admission of Smith on account of his  being a colored num.    That he would not  Chinese Martin's Troubles,  lion. G. B. Martin is having no end of  trouble in attempting to deny the remarkable Chinese speech which he made in the  legislature during the recent session.  Since Martin has been in the legislature  he has consistently opposed all attempts  made by members of the opposition to  legislate against the employment of Chinese and Japanese. This session he went  further and announced that he had employed all kinds of men on his ranch, including men from Ontario, and that the  be.-t ituui he ever had  was a  Chinaman  for  il")  per  month.    Since  who worked  making this ill-advised speech, Martin  has been writing1 letters to all parts of  the province in the endeavor to make the  electors believe that he never made it. In  the legislature Martin was given the lie  direct by Mr. Kellie, who "said he had  heard the commissioner make the remarks  attributed to him, and on top of this Air.  Semlin has since taken an affidavit that  he also heard the commissioner make the  remarks. There is therefore no escape  for Martin. __  The Tax on Working- Miners.  Just how the Turner government  stands upon the question of imposing a  tax upon the men who work in the metalliferous mines for wages is shown by the  vote recorded in the legislature on March  17th. Mr. Cotton moved the following  resolution: '"That in the opinion of this  house, l.ioorers in mines snouiu noi., as  such, be required to take out free miners'  licenses." This resolution was negatived  upon the following division: \~eas���  Sword, Kennedy, Hume, Forster, McPher-  son, Veddeiy Semlin, Cotton, Graham,  Kellie and Higgins���-11. , Nays���Huff j'  Smith, Mutter, Turner, Martin, Rithetj  Adams, Stoddart, Walkem, Pooles%  Eberts, Bryden, Rogers, 'Hunter,' Braden  and McGregor���.1.0. The excuse offered by  the government for imposing this tax is  that the miners like, to pay it. The  miners will have a chance to be heard  from when they get their ballot papers.  . Bock' Drilling' Contest at Rossland.  Burns and Tallon .won the rock drilling  contest at Rossland on the 24th, driving  '88i- inches. Their competitors, Stephen-  sou and Ericson, drilled 3-l�� inches. Burns  was the first hammersman, and drilled  for a straight minute, after, which he and  Tallon changed every half minute. . Tallon proved an adept at changing drills,  and his work in that direction could  hardly be surpassed. Not a single stroke  was lost while he exchanged steel, and  his drills never froze far an instant.  Canadian Parliament to Prorogue.  In the house of commons on Wednesday, sir Wilfrid Laurier stated that there  would be no new bills of any consequence  introduced, and consequently prorogation  may be looked for about the end of next  This,may be taken to mean that the government will pay Mackenzie 6c Mauu an  indemnity instead of trying to put a new  bill through the house. It is said that  the indemnity which the railway contractors may claim runs from $''00,000 to  $500,000..   McQueen Declines With Thanks.  The government supporters in Richmond are having a difficulty in securing a  candidate to contest that riding with  Thomas Kidd, the present member. They  thought they had James McQ,ueen slated  for the position, but he has declined. This  may be taken to mean that James McQueen, of Vancouver, does not consider  that a government candidate has any  chance of success in Richmond riding. In  this James McQueen's head is no doubt  level. '���  Lead Bonus was Never Paid.  In the house of commons on Wednesday  sir Richard Cartright, in reply to a question, stated that it was not the intention  to amend the regulations framed under  the act of I89;j for the encouragement of  lead smelting as no change would make  them more effective. No money had been  paid out under the regulations because  required returns had not been received  from tlie several smelters.  Lawyer Howell Palled to Appear.  H. C. Howell, Q. C, of Winnipeg, summoned to appear before the committee of  the Commons in connection with the  Manitoba election prosecutions, was called  three times on Wednesday, and no reply  being given, Sir Ilibbert Tupper asked to  have him reported to the House.  More Canadian Knights.  The royal birthday honors are characterized by innumerable military rewards for service in the campaign against  the rebellious Afridis ou the Indian frontier. No fewer than six Victoria Crosses  are awarded. Several honors are bestowed upon distinguished Canadians.  The Hon. Chas. Alphonse P. Pelletier,  speaker of the senate of Canada, the Hon.  Jas. David Edgar, speaker of the Canadian house of commous, and Mr. John  George Bourinot, clerk of the house, are  made Knight Commanders of the order of  the order of St. Michael and St. George.  Light  . Delayed i'or Another Month.  . The West Kootenay Power &  Company is proceeding with the erection  of its poles and lines from the transforming station by the Virginia to the Wat-  Eagle and also to the British Columbia  Bullion Ext-acting ��� Company's 'plant at  Silica, near .he O. K., on Little Sheep  creek. Owing to delays in some electrical  machinery, it will probably be a month  beforethecompanycommenc.es to transmit 'power.  '  Killed at the Silver King Mine.  ���Stephen Jeffrey, a miner employed at  the Silver-King.mine, was killed Wednesday afternoon by falling down the shaft  from the No. 4 tunnel. It is supposed  that the deceased thought that he was  stepping into the cage and instead stepped  into the open shaft. A coroner's jury returned a verdict of accidental death and  exonerated the mine management from  any blame. The Nelson 'Undertaking  Company will ship the remains to Ne-  gannee, Michigan, i'or burial.  Convention Failed to Nominate.  The opposition delegates from the several divisions of the Rossland riding  failed to_ nominate a candidate on Wednesday, in the convention which met at  Rossland. It is reported that1 there was  some feeling that the Boundary Creek  section of the district was not accorded a  sufficient number of delegates to the convention. Another convention will beheld  in Rossland on June Nth. James Martin,  of Rossland, i.s the strongest candidate in  some half-dozen aspirants.  The Family of Martins.  The circumstance that there arc three  Martins mentioned as candidates in the  approaching elections is leading to some  confusion. The Martins may be classified  as follows: Joseph Martin, whom the people of 'Vancouver want; James Martin,  whom the people of I'osslnnd riding  want; and Chinese Martin, whom nobody  wants, save the Chinese.  If the Miners want it Enforced they Should  Return Opposition Candidates.  It will be the duty of the minors who  desire to see Kellie's Truck Act enforced'  to return opposition members to the next  legislature. The Turner government is at  heart hostile to any such legislation,  which, in its protection .to the working  miners, cuts off possible profits to the  wealthy companies employing them.  That the Turner government was opposed to the passage of the Truck Act  was evidenced by the action of the attorney-general on April IHth in moving that  the order for the second reading of the  bill be discharged, and that the bill bo referred to a committee of five members, in  which committee it could be conveniently  strangled without any record of tho same  appearing upon the journals of the house.  It is worthy of note that this amendment  of the attorney-general's was supported  only by the members of the cabinet, and  by six of the most subservient of tlie government's supporters in the house. No  less than four government supporters  voted with the opposition in defeating  this scheme to defeat the bill.  The object of this truck act i.s to require  the full payment of workmen's' wages in  money, and thus protect them from being  cinched through being compelled to board  in company boarding houses, or through  being obliged to make purchases of goods  iir their employer's stores. The main  clauses of the act apply to workmen employed in any iucoporated city or within  three miles thereof.  The vote upon attorney-general Ebert's  motion to refer the bill to a committee  was supported by Messrs. Huff, Smith,  Baker, Turner, Martin, Adams, AValkem,  Pooley. Eberts, Bryden and Rogers.  If the miners of Kootenay wish to see  this act enforced they must return candidates who are friendly to the miners,  rather than those who are friendly to the  Turner government. It is safe to say  that under another Turner ad ministration the act would become a dead letter,  and the interests of the miners wotdd be  sacrificed to increase the profits of the  employing companies, whose representatives pay frequent visits to the capital  and extend theglad hand to the ministers.  That Economical Administration.  The supplementary estimates of the  federal government bring the total national expenditure provided for the current year up to $40,")6!),<i01. This expenditure is the largest in the history of the  Dnniiuion. Lf-st year's expend'.rpr? v.:.������=,  about $2,500,000 less, aud the country's  heaviest annual bill previous to this year  was only $30,011,012-and that was in JSSO,  wi:,en the expense of the Northwest rebellion had to be provided for. For the year  ending June 30th, 1890, the last year of  Tory rule, the expenditure was $30.049.112  ���aud Liberal economists then ..'"railed'  against Tory extravagance.  TROUBLE   FOR   SOMEONE!.  -./    /--  Prosecutions for Perjury Will Probably Result  From that Investigation.  If one can believe the press dispatches  the Turner government has struck asnag  in the investigation into the manner in  which the lands and works department is  run in Victoria. It will.be remembered  that the Times, of Victoria, intimated  that in order to get the officials of the  lands and works department to facilitate  public business they had to be ti piled.  Justice Walkem was appointed  a commissioner to investigate the  matter during  the last days of the session, and on  Wednesday he completed  the  taking of  evidence.    From the government's point  of  view  the   investigation  ran  along as  nicely as could  be desired.   The  officials  of the lands and works department were  .examined from the top to the bottom, and  none of them had  ever heard  of anyone  receiving a tip.    ft was different when R.  F. Tolmie, of Nelson, started to  give evidence.    This is  what'the  press dispatch  says concerning his evidence: "The government employe, R. F. Tolmie, of Nelson,  was   severely   cross-examined,    and   admitted    the    correspondence     regarding  crown grants having  been  issued   for an  improper   consideration.     The   evidence  .will be submitted to the government and  prosecutions for  perjury   will   probably  "result."'  '" of taxing  mortgages  i.s  an   injustice."  The  man  who  led  the fight against the  passage of this resolution was Hon. G.  K.  Pooley.    ITe said  that although  the borrower of money under a mortgage might  pay taxes upon the full  value of his property,   and   additional   taxes   upon   the  mortgaged indebtedness of the same property tliat'.such was not double taxation.  And the government, which at present is  so  very much  interested in the farmers  negatived the Cotton resolution by carrying the following amendment: " To strike  '" out all the words after ' house' and   in-  " the  following:    'The   personal  tax'on  " moneys   included   in     mortgages    and  " taxed to the  mortgagee is  not double  " taxation." "   The government members  who thus killed Cotton's resolution were:  Messrs. I ruff, Smith, Mutter, Baker, Turner, Martin, Rithet, Adams, Booth, Stoddart,   Pooley,   Eberts.   Bryden,   Rogers,  Hunter and McGregor���10.   Tt  is safe to  say that Pooley's definition of  the legal  mean in go, of   double   taxation    will   not  satisfy tho farmers who  are nosv paying  taxes  on  what they own and  on   what  they owe.  CHINESE TO MOVE OFF   VERNON STREET.  Prize Winners at Kaslo.  ���   The Nelson boys succeeded  in  carrying  off a considerable number of the;  prizes  offered at Kaslo on Tuesday.    In the hose  team race Nelson  made a tie with Kaslo,.  and   divided   the   $!"50 purse.   The   ball  game  between   the   Nelson and   Sandon  teams was called at the end  of the sixth  inning, the score standing 1 i to 0 in favor  of the Sandon team.    The winners in the  Caledonian sports were: Fifty yard boot,  race, won by Fred Spiers, Gus Miller, sqc^,  ond ; One hundred yard race for boys-fin^*  dor lit, won by Louis Turk,  Clair Mabee,  second; seventy-five yard egg and spoon  race,   won   by Clair Mabee,   Louis Turk,  second:    seventy-five   yard   three-legged  race, won by. Dill and Keith, Smith and  Houston, of Nelson, second : One hundred  yard open footrace, won by Dill, Thompson, of Nelson, second ; two hundred and  twenty   yard   open    footrace,    won    by  Thompson,  of Nelson, Dill second : four  hundred  and forty yard  open footrace,  won   by Jeffs,  Stutter   second,   both   of  Nelson.;   running   broad   jump,   won   by  Campbell, 19 feet, S  inches ; Dill, second,  JS j'eet.   1  inch :   running  hop,  step and  jump, won by Geo.

Some Puzzling Questions Settled.  Judgment was given by the imperial  privy council on Thursday, on the questions submitted by the Dominion and  provincial governments of Canada. The  judgment is considered there as being in  favor of the provinces. The case was argued July 28, 1S!J7. The following is a decision on the points submitted:, I. That  the beds of rivers and lakes are the property of the provinces. 2. That tlie public  harbors are vested in the Dominion, but  in respect of harbors generally it is dependent on'facts whether or not the harbors become Dominion property. 3. Fishing regulations seem to be divided among  the provinces, and the Dominion has  power to make "regulations regarding  open and closed seasons, the size of meshes  in nets, etc., but the ownership of the  fishing privileges rests in the provinces.  The Dominion has the power to issue  licenses to parties acquiring fishing rights  from the provinces, but cannot grant  monopolies. 4. The right of the Dominion  to prevent or permit the erection of works  in navigable waters is confirmed.  A New Tax for Slaughter Sales.  While the Municipal Clauses Amending  Bill was before tlie legislature last week  Mr. Hume secured an amendment to the  act which will be welcomed by the bona  iide merchants of Nelson. Mr. Hume inserted a new clause in section 171, giving  municipalities the power to collect from  any transient trader or other person who  occupies premises in the municipality for  temporary periods, iind who may offer  goods or merchandise of any description  for sale by auction, or in any other manner, conducted by himself or' a licensed,  auctioneer, or otherwise, in addition to  any other license before mentioned,.a sum  not exceeding one hundred dollars for  every six niontlis or part thereof.  The Government's Mortgage Tax Problem.  The political campaign has opened in  earnest on Vancouver Island, and Hon.  C. E. Pooley is now endeavoring to explain his position on the mortgage tax to  the farmers in Esquimalt district. The  members of tho opposition have for years  been lighting to secure an amendment to  ���the assessment act by which this tax  upon a man's poverty would be removed.  However, like the tax upon men working  in the metalliferous mine--, tho mortgage  tax yielded considerable revenue, and the  government refused to abolish it, no matter how unjust it might be. A resolution  came before the legislature on February  2S, dealing with this question. If was  moved by Mr. Cotton, and read: "That  " iu tlie opinion af 'Ids house the double  " taxation involved in (he present system  Decision in Rubenstein Case.  The appeal in the case of Merryweather  vs. Aspiuwall was argued, before the full  court at  Victoria' last  week,   when   the  plaintiff's contention at the trial was sustained and  the defendant's  appeal   dismissed.   This case was an  adverse claim  action,   in   which   the   plaintiff,   Merry-  weather, as the owner of the Rubenstein,  a prior location, ad versed the Lofty claim,  owned by Phil Aspinwall.    The ground iu  dispute adjoins the 0.   K.  at Rossland.  The case was tried before Justice McColl.  The plaintiff's contention was that as the  Rubenstein was the prior  location, all he  had to do to establish his location  was to  put in his recordf and that the defendant  had to show that the plaintiff's location  was bad, the defendant holding  the subsequent record.    In   the   opinion  of   the  "trial judge the Rubenstein was a valid location, and the defendant failed to show  that   it   was   not.   .-   This   opinion    was  affirmed  by  the full court.   John Elliot  appeared for the plaintill', Merryweather,  and Hamilton, of Rossland, for the defendant.    Tax on Lawyers Remains.  It does not matter how lawyers differ  politically, they can' always be counted  upon sticking together whenever the interests of the profession are at stake. In  the legislature last week Hon. C. E.  Pooley moved that the clause in the Municipal Clauses 'Act, giving tho municipali-  - t"ec ��YY!v'v.-"0 "\rmose a tax of $25, per au-  nurn upon the'lawyers bo struck out. He  then went on to say the tax was one that  had never been collected, and he did not  think it ever would. He pointed out already that the members of the bar each  paid $20 a year towards the keeping up of  law libraries throughout the province,  and these libraries vy&re not only for the  benefit of the 'bar&but of the public as  well. But there are other places than  Victoria, and the members of the house  are not all lawyers, and the result was  that the amendment of Mr. Pooley was  defeated. ���   '.-'.���..  The Government's Plight in Cariboo.  Mr. Adams, one of the Turner government's supporters from Caribo, has decided that he will not seek re-election.  The electors of Cariboo will attend to the  case of his colleague, Mr. Rogers. _ It is  said that the government will be forced  to accept Joseph Hunter as one of its Cariboo' candidates, as no one else has the  slightest chance of winning as a'government candidate. Hunter is the government supporter who denounced the $5,-  000.000 land bill's Yukon railway clause as  an attempt to swindle the province out of  $1,000,000.    Good candidate.  They Keep Dropping Out.  Arthur Wellington Smith has, it is announced, decided to quit politics. Mr.  Smith has sat in the legislature for several years, representing one of the Lil-  ooets. He was a faithful supporter of the  Turner government. He is said to have  voted for the Turner government's $.">.-  000.000 railway loan bill against hi.s own  inclinations, and it may be that the pressure which was put upon all government  members to induce them to support this  bill has had the effect of driving'Mr.  Smith out of politics.-.  Nest Egg Company Got Damages.  Justice Walkem has given judgment, in  Nest Egg vs. Canadian Hand Drill Co. for  plaintill'in accordance with the findings  of the jury 'for $1011.41, reimbursement  for the.machinery removed and $3*>0(J (.endamages.

Acting mayor Teetzel had a conference  on Friday with L. A Hamilton, C. P. Li.  land commissioner, respecting several  matters at issue between the city of Nel--  son and the railway company's land department.  The Chinese  matter  was  speedily disposed  of.    The   trouble   in   this  instance  was caused by the railway company leasing a number of lots to the  Chinese on  Vernon street in the vicinity of the soda  water works.   The effect of this would be  to  make a   regular   Chinese   quarter of  what is at present a very desirable  resi:  deuce portion  of the city.   To  meet the  views of the city in this respect the commissioner agreed to lease the Chinese land  on Lake street in blocks 01 and 71.    These  blocks lie in the flat and  the presence of  the   Chinese   would   not   interfere   with  anyone.  With   respect  to  the  purchase of the  cemetery     site,   the    railway    company  agreed to sell a, choice  of two pieces of  land  for  cemetery   pin-poses at $20 per  acre.    The land picked out by the city in  the first instance adjoins the lnnes addition, but this land  the railway company  considered too valuable for cemetery purposes in view of its proximity to the city.  The railway company's  proposition  was  that the city should go  back about  1000  feet from the limits of the lnnes addition  before taking up its cemetery hind..  This  land would be distant from the lake front  about l.j miles.   The other land offered by  the railway company was a section on the  1 bill'Mines   road,   near   McLeod's   milk  ranch, which the company is  willing  to  sell at about the same figure.   This  land  is about one  mile from   the  town.   The  members of the council will look over the  two pieces of lanrl and probably make a  selection.  Some difficulty was experienced in securing a new location for the residents of  East Baker street. It was thought that  they could be located close to the new  Chiuese section to be started in the (hits,  but the railway company was opposed to  this. With rcspectto the other portions  of the flat the company said that the de-  maud for warehouse accommodation was  so great that it would take all the available space along the water front. AVhen  it was hinted that a -piece of the park reserve at the head of Victoria street should  be divided into lots and sold i'or this purpose, Frank Fletcher, the company's resident agent, said that there was an understanding between the railway company  and the provincial government^ that, in  tne event ol cue parK'roservVueClig suLau- *  viderl into lots, that the railway company  should have one-half of it. In the end no  decision was arrived at. :  Upon the subject of giving the entitles to the lots upon which 'the city  buildings stand, and the lots devoted to  recreation .purposes,, the railway officials  replied that the government had not  deeded to the company the property  which it was to receive in exchange, and  that as soon as the government gave the  company- its lots the matter would be  fixed up..       ���-.'.-'     ,.������'-'-  ���Why the Mining Inspector is not Appointed.  Three mining fatalities were recorded  during the past week. It is immaterial  whether the coroner's jury exonerates the  mine management or not, these accidents  emphasize' the necessity for the immediate appointment of a mining inspector.  The spectacle which is presented to the  miners is this: The Turner government  recognizes the necessity of the appointment of an inspector.' it has a very capable man picked out for the job, The  appointment is not filled because the government requires the political influence of  James McGregor in Nanaimo. That noble  and humane government at Victoria holds  a slight political advantage of more consequence than the lives of the men working   in    the    precious   metal   .mines    of  Kootenay.     ; ;���__'-.    '  The Chain Gang for Hoboes.  For the past week the "city." has been so  infested with able-bodied beggars that  thecity authorities'have decided, to run  them out of town. The police have received instructions to arrest all men  caught begging on the streets, .and the  citi/.ens are requested to report all such  cases. When two or three of these able-  bodied loafers are arrested it-is the purpose of the city council to organize a  chain gang and put litem to work on the  streets. The police have reason to believe  that the city has become the.dumping  ground for professional hoboes from Spokane. _     '      '    _       _ ���  The Deal Will Go Through.  Colonel Rid path, with Senator Turner, .  is opposed to the sale of the lie Roi, and  has worker! hard to secure, a negative  vote in the board of directors, but a remark that ho marie to a friend i.n Spokane  on Thursday indicates that he has very  little hope of being'able to prevent the  sale.

SAT URJUY   UORSLSG .\l A V 2S. 1SHS  crease the representation of southwest  ivootenay. These are the facts. The determined fight of the opposition had the  effect of improving a bill which the government said, when it was introduced,  was as good as could be expected under  the circumstances. The Kootenaian is  acting as the apologist for a government  which sought to-deprive the electors of  Slocan of their proper voice in the councils of the province. Jts readers can probably guess the why.  Mu. Wii.i.ia.ms, of Vancouver, has decided to drop out of piovincial politics.  This action on his part will no doubt  simplify the situation in the opposition  party in Vancouver. There are now three  prospective candidates in the fielrl with a  fourth one to bo named. .Messrs. Cotton,  .Martin and .Macpherson should bo able  to pull the fourth, man iu anil make a  solid opposition from the terminal city.  It is  announced  that  premier Turner  and attorney-general  Eberts  will hold a  political    meeting    in     Nelson    shortly.  Should they do so they will havea chance  of explaining to the people of southwest  Kootenay   why  they sought  to  disfranchise the electors of this  district.    They  will  be  afforded  an  opportunity  of explaining   why  they considered   that 200  prospective voLers in Cassiar, should have  two representatives in the next legislature   while   19(50   prospective    voters   in  southwest Kootenay should have butone.  The people have a right to know why the  premier of the.  province considered that  one   elector   in    Cassiar   should   have  a  greater voice in the management of the  affairs of this province than ten electors  in Kootenay.    It would interest the people of the old riding of southwest Ivootenay to know why premier Turner formed  his redistribution bill so that 200 prospective voters in Cassiar. should  be able to_  negative the votes of Sii22 voters in southwest  Kootenay   and    Rossland    ridings.  Premier   Turner    and    attorney-general  liberts   had"-! these   figures   before  them  when they so framed their redistribution  bill, and when they-submitted such a bill  they said it was the best which could be  expected under the circumstances.  What  were those circumstances?    Was Kootenay denied its proper representation because Kootenay could not be depended  upon  to return government supporters?  Has politics so blunted the sensibilities of  premier Turner that he could not see the  rank injustice of such a measure?   Is  the  franchise a thing which can be extended  to the electors or withheld at the will of  the party in power?   Is the right of the  subject to participate in the. government  of this province to be determined by his  willingness or unwillingnes to  vote  for  government candidates?   These are a few  questions   which   may  fairly be   put to  premier Turner.  W. O. Wki.i.s has been nominated as  the opposition candidate for the' north  riding of Kast Kootenay.  It is now definitely announced that  Joseph Martin will make the race in Vancouver as an opposition candidate! The  Province of Vancouver has been instrumental in bringing Martin out, and it announces that any attempt to introduce  federal politics into the campaign will be  discouraged. There is some talk in Victoria of an understanding having been arrived at between Martin aud premier  Turner, but this is stoutly denied by  Martin's friends. Martin may be marked  down as the next attorney-general of  British Columbia.  Tin-: council of the city of Niagara Falls,  N. Y., declared a public holiday on Tuesday in honor of the queen's birthday, and  the city officials spent the day in assisting the Cauadians to celebrate on the  Canadian side of the line. One-half of  the tolls taken on both bridges across the  river were devoted to the fund raised for  the support of the families of the American soldiers who left last week for the  seat of war. The compliment paid by the  Americans to their Canadian neighbors  was in the nature of a return for one paid  by the Canadians during the previous  week. When the company of volunteers  left Niagara, N. V'., for the front, four  Canadian fire companies went across the  river headed by the Union Jack and a  brass band and joined in wishing the  Yanks C'od speed and victory  f  mon responsibility with the other eler>  tors of the province in the general policy  of the government. When the elections  come around every elector is called upon  to record his opinion as to whether the  Turner government has wisely administered the affairs of this province or  whether it has not. Jf ah elector is ot the  opinion that the Turner government has  not administered the affairs of this province in the interests of the people of the  province, it is his duty to record his vote  against the government's candidate. 17  this course is not adopted the province of  ���British Columbia can never hope to secure  the advantages of good government.  That the Turner government is ashamed  of its own policy is attested by the fact  that iu many constituencies the govern-  ment'is afraid to put up straight government candidates. In districts where .the  government's policy upon local issues is  in disfavor, the scheme of the government  party is to put up independents, who announce that they agree with the general  policy of the government, but who condemn it upon certain local matters  which affect their own particular district.  If this trick were tolerated the electors  could never bring an incapable administration to book. The first duty of the  electors is to dismiss men who have been  unable to satisfactorily administer the  affairs of the province. The only way to  do this is to refuse support to all candidates who will not pledge themselves to  oppose the Turner government.  -i-p-nerai  'V.  If,  c  J  EL��n il  Capitai 81,500,000.

Thi__ government supporters around  Revelstoke will go into convention for  the purpose of nominating a candidate  the approaching elections. The opposition candidate may be said to be in the  field already in the person of J. M. Kellie.  He put up a great fight in the house this  session and should win in a walk.  I). M. Cahi,icv', has. got a government  job in Victoria. He is 'making labels for  the government candidates. This is what  he has designed for the government's  Slocan sacrifice: ".John L. Retallaek is  spoken of as the government candidate in  the Slocan riding. Mr. I'etallack stands  well in liis own city and would lie a tower  of strength to the Turner government."  "Tnio Xelson Tkiiu'xk's statement that  " the   opposition   forced   the  redistribti-  " tion bill, as it finally passed,. upon the  " government, is quite too ridiculous to  " be considered  seriously."    The above is  from   the   Kootenaian.   The  files of  the  Victoria    Colonist    and   the   Vancouver  World will show that  the  government's  redistribution bill, as it passed, its second  sending, gave southwest Kootenay  with  I!'('() prospective voters one member, .and  Cassiar   with   200  voters  two   members.  And tlie members of the government assured the legislature that the bill  was as  could expected  under the circumstances.  When   the   bill   reached  the   committee  stage   the   members   of    the    opposition  fought for twenty-three consecutive hours  to   secure  additional   representation   for  southwest Ivootenay, and finally quit the  house in a body as a protest against  the  'unfair manner in which  the government  allowed the debate to be conducted.   And  after this fight the government members  held a caucus and   it was decided to in-  Tiikkk will   be  more  railway construction carried on in British Columbia during  the  present and  ensuing year than, has  been attempted since the construction of  the  main   line of   the  Canadian  Pacific  Railway Company'through'.the province.  The  construction  of these  railways will  cost the  province and   Dominion several  millions  of dollars, and  when they are  completed the people of British Columbia  will be more, hopelessly at the mercy of  the  railway  monopoly of the Canadian  Pacific Railway Company than ever before.    While other countries are reaping  the  benefits of state  ownership of railways, the politicians of British Columbia  are  virtually  building  railways for the  Canadian   Pacific   Company   out  of   the  funds of the province.    The province receives no direct return, and the people in  the districts served are called upon to pay  the maximum charges for transportation.  This is the railway policy which the premier of "my government" asks the electors of this  province to endorse.    He has  no idea of a policy of state ownership of  railways which does not include the purchase of the Canadian  Pacific Company's  lines throughout the province.'-, He will  confidently assert  that   the  province- is  not in a position  to carry out a policy of  state  ownership of railways, and  in the  same session of the legislature he will obligate  tho  province  to   pay  $5,000,000 in  bonuses :to the railway projects of shrewd  promoters, in return for which the people  of the province have the privilege of paying   fares over  railways built  with  their  money.   The case of the Nakusp it Slocan  railway is a case  in  point,    ft was out of  the question for the government to build  this as a  government road.    Instead the  government chartered  a  company  company,com posed of its intimate friends, and  they built, the road, and   the government  merely guaranteed  the 'capital   amount  required  to build the road and   the interest upon the same for  twenty-five years.  And   premier. Turner and  his colleagues  never tire of telling how their wonderful  railway  policy has opened up   Kootenay  and made it the district that it is.  IX'nixr; the recent session premier Turner paid considerable attention to some of  the comments which appeared in the Victoria Times concerning  his  government.  There was. however, one set of interrogations which the editor of the Times put to  the government which were ignored   by  the lirst minister.   The Times man desired  to know whether premier Turner kept his  mechanical majority in the house bj' promises of  public offices  when  the session  was   over.       The   question    was   asked  whether   the   government   received   the  support of three members who had promises of public offices.   The cases cited  were: that of James McGregor, the member for Nanaimo, who was reported  to be  the government's nominee for the position  of   inspector   of   mines ;   that   of   Major  Mutter,   one   of   the    Cowichan-Albcrni  members, who, it was said, was slated for  gold commissionership or some such office ;  and that of Mr. Huff, the other Cowichau-  Alberni  member  who,  it   was reported,  was to be made a stipendiary magistrate.  Is the government's silence in this matter  to be tak.enjis meaning that it dared not  call  for an investigation as was done in  another case ?   It looks that way.  Sixck J.SS0  the press of Kootenay has  been urging the Turner government and  its predecessors to repeal the tax which it  collects from  every man  who earns his  living by working in or around the metalliferous mines of Kootenay.    There is no  reason why the working miners should be  thus singled out   for   exceptional  treatment, in  being obliged  to.pay what is  practically a trade tax.   The government  cannot justify such a.tax, but it lias persistently refused to repeal it.    Year after  year it offers some different excuse for its  retention.    The latest  which was offered  was   that   it  was   retained  because   the  miners liked to pay it.   How many electors are there in Kootenay who will say  'that  the Turner government was honest  in making such an assertion ?   Will it not  be  apparent  to   them   that   the   tax   is  retained simply because it produced a certain amount of revenue?    What, confidence   can  they   have  in a government  which, after  nine years urging, persists  in refusing to do a plain act of justice ?  Thic policy advocated by some newspapers in Jvootenay is that the electors of  this district should support certain independent candidates, who in return for  their support of the Turner government  shall exact liberal appropriations for the  district. Such a policy would be dishonest. If it were successfully carried out it  would create in Kootenay the same condition of things -which obtains in the government's Docket lj|oroughs on Vancouver  Island. The electors of Kootenay have a  duty to perforin to the province as a  whole as well as to their own district.  Thoy have a common   interest and a coiu-  Skxator Tj2M.p_u__.man' tind Hewitt Bos-  toclc have left Ottawa to stand their trial  at  the approaching  assises  at   Victoria  upon  the charge  of criminally libelling  the   honorable   J.'H.   Turner   and    the  equally honorable C. M Pooley.    The suit  i.s the result of a criticism upon  the connection of Turner,  Pooley  6c Co.,   with  speculative Klondyke mining companies.  The outcome of the action will be awaited  with   considerable interest.    The general  opinion   is   that   the    proceedings    were  started  for the sole purpose of checking  any  discussion   in   the legislature of the  unique connection; of  the ministers with  the company.'   In this respect the ministers  were successful,   and   the   province  witnessed   the spectacle  of a legislature  being muzzled so that it could not discuss  the actions of the ministers of the crown,  in what, was  generally  regarded  by the  members of the opposition as an abuse of  their official titles.  Tiik Province in a recent issue suggested that votes in the legislature be by  ballot instead of in the open manner as at  present, which admits of a record being  taken of every member's vote. Had such  a policy been in vogue in the case of the  governments railway loan bill there  would have been at least three votes less  recorded in favor of the measure. It  takes considerable strength for a man to  denounce his party's measure and vote  against it as dirl Joseph Hunter upon  that occasion.  It Left the Cubans Nothing   but a Choice Between  Rebellion or Starvation.  Those who condemn the government of  the United States i'or its interference with  the Spanish   administration  of Cuba are  evidently not acquainted with  the hardships .which have been imposed  upon  the  natives of that island.'  Spanish cruelties  in Cuba are not new to Lhe Cubans.   The  butcheries which have . attended   the  revolt of the Cubans are but an incident iu  tho long reign of Spanish misrule.    To arrive at an idea of the injustice  to'which  the Cubans have been subji-cterl. one has  to consider how the Spaniards   managed  the aflaii's of the people of Cuba.    AVhat  would the people of British Columbia say  were they burdened with a debt of $IS0,-  000,000,   and  were   called   upon   to  raise  $.',000,000 per annum for interest charges  alone.     Such   is   the   case   in  Cuba,  and  the Cubans have no voice in t he incurring  of this, debt..    How would  the  people of  any Canadian  province  like  to be calied  upon  to  raise #2-1,000,000  per annum   for  provincial   purposes,    hi   ISOO-l   the  estimated   revenue of Cuba   was just under  $2."),700,000, and the estimated expenditure  a. little short of Llii-s amount.    In   \S(.)'2-S  tlie revenue was nor. quire 21,!).")(_,000 pe>os  ---the peso being equal lo about i)S cent'-'.  Of this sum 10,").")0,000 pe.->os came from the  customs, the imports being   worth ilO.OOO.-  000 pesos, of which IS,500,00() polos'  worth  came from Spain, and wore nearly all duty  free; direct' and   indirect   taxes   reali/.eii  over ."U'OO.OOO pesos, or, about throe and a  quarter dollars per head.    A state lottery  brought ino,500,000 peso*, stumps (anothe'r  form of indirect taxation) 1,0:30,000 pesos,  and government property 2:30,000 pesos.  Jn lSU'3-1. the   revenue was estimated at  2.''.'M0,0OO  pesos and   the expenditure at a  1'ew thousands short of 20,000,000 pesos.  The .sums raised   by this monstrous burden of taxation were apportioned in ISUS-  ���I as follows:    Debt, over  12,300,000 pesos;  military, "...00.000 pesos; interior, -1.000,000  pesos;    marine,    1,000,000   pesos.     In   the  year previous the general  debt absorber I  10,300,000  pesos, the army ;3,.'300,OpO pesos,  the interior ':!, 100,000 .pesos,  the   marine  1,000,000 pesos, justice and worship 715,000  pesos,   financial   purposes   308,000   pesos,  and the construction and maintenance of  public works the magnificent sum of .109,-  ,000 pesos.    How would  the  people of any  ^province like budgets  like that', supplied  'by taxes raised  from them and expended  by men imported  from another country.  The item of military purposes 'deserves  attention.    The   island   was  required   to  support in  peacetime an  army of 20,000  men, backet) by a militia of 03,000.    Then,  in addition, there was the further burden  of municipal  taxation  of   $10,000,000   or  $11,000,000 a year.   All  this  great  public  revenue was handled by Spaniards.   Native-born Cubans were not allowed access  to   posts   of   emolument.     All   accounts  unite in describing the administration.by  these Spanish officials as  corrupt in the  extreme.    Then, this taxation was levied  upon a country whose commercial interests were not  in  a flourishing 'condition.  The decline in the price of sugar hit Cuba  very   hard.     The   Spanish   government,  without consulting  the  Cubans, refused  to renew the reciprocity treaty,with the  United  States and  thus added to the depression   by helping, to  close  to  Cuba a  natural market of great importance. Then  Spain  imposed  .in "her  own  ..ports high  duties upon sugar, alcohol,   coffee, cacao  and   tobacco,  while   nearly   all   Spanish  goods entered the island free. The Cubans  assert that no less a sum than $330,000,000  was taken  from   the  island  between IS71.)  and 1S03 for the benefit of Spain.  The  Bankers and Ballet Girls.  By.the war tax bill of tho I'nited States  bankers are expecterl to contribute $2,300,-  000 in special taxation, and  theatres and  other exhibitions $1,820,000. It is quite  apparent that the banker has more friends  at Washington than the ballet girl. Congress seems to be following the example  of the Sultan who, when his grand vizier  toirl him that the money chest was empty,  asked: "How do'you tax the people?"  "Hy, the head, Light of I_"arth,'' replied  the vi/.ier. ' "Then tax them by the lingers," said the Sultan.  Changes in Britain's Navy.  Several changes in the Esquimalt squadron are about to take place. The second-  class twin-screw battleship Temperiare is  shortly to letive Portsmouth for Esquimalt. She will be the first battleship ever  stationed on the coast, and is a vessel of  S310 tons and 0300 I. II. P..

Watson 6c AVilson, printers and publishers, were very much in need of a man.  There was the new tux list, just awarded  them by the populist county commissioners they had helped to elect, and they did  not know a thing about the insanity-  breeding problem of rule and figure work.  They "had learned the trade" like many  another man in the country, and could set  straight composition with anybody.  Watson, indeed, had developed a talent  for display lines, and could satisfy all the  demands of Watertown merchants for  envelopes and letter heads, and. by following the urennral form of ancient, wall-  borne specimens, could "do'" .sale bills to  your heart's delight.  But who shoulel save them from the pitfall of rules and figures.  As they stood at the button) of the  stairway thinking of these things, they  saw a stranger on the street--Watertown  always looked twice at a stranger. This  man was of medium height', slender, with  the appearance of one who had flourished  in cities, catching the style and the garments that are unusual in the country.  Mis hands were slender, and there was  something about the right thumb and  forefinger which proclaimed his craft at  once.  " lie's a, printer," said Watson,  "lie's seen the sign and is coming over."  said Wilson.  The new man paused at the entrance  way, read the cardboard office signs on  the stairway, looked at the two men critically, and inquired :  " Any chance for work ?"  " How did you know we were  the  publishers'1" asked Watson.  '���' How did you know I wasa printer?"  asked the man.  hi the afternoon he took charge of the  delinquent list, and iu half an hour they  knew they were secure. He was a craftsman. He knew everything from bending  rule to casting rollers. But he would not  pull the hand press, and he would not  work Saturday afternoon. They labored  with him on these "points ; but he laughed  aud said he was past it. ;  He was given to jesting; aud one of his  happiest thoughts was to shoot a spray of  water into the eye of an inquisitive citizen who wanted to see purple stars in a  galley ol'-dead type, wetted for distribii-  tiori. He .taught Watson������&���.Wilson how  to double their income: from foreign advertisers by taking twice as much business as the paper could, carry, and stop  the press in time to lift out one line, and  set in the other. It troubled their consciences���attributes which, he assured  them, the foreign advertisers did not  possess.  In a. good many ways he enjoyed himself. It was clear to everyone that he  held the town and all its belongings in  something like contempt; but he was so  amiable about it, so suave in his treatment  of people .that punishment wasnnthought  of and antipathy was disarmed.  When Watsou 6c Wilson began advertising for the Fourth of July celebration,  the printer was ready to move. He had  worked three mouths in one town, and  was hungry for the city. They wanted  him to stay. They sat down one day in  ���June, when the " paper was off," and  tried to argue it. He told them he must  make a confession. There was a young  woman in the town, sweetheart���affianced  he feared���of a man whom he regarded as  his friend ; and she had smiled upon him.  She was very fair, and he feared lie might  forget himself, prove disloyal and court a  girl to his friend's undoing. . They applauded the chivn.lric sentiment and went  away���-Watson assured it was Wilson's  young lady ; Wilson convinced it was  Watson's girl.  The Fourth of July had come. Wilson  was master of ceremonies. Watson was  leader of the band. People came in delegations i'rom the couutry. There was a  cannon on the blulf, and a float on the  river. Wilson wanted something with  which to load that 20-pouuder. Cramming down wet paper was good in its way,  but it didn't, make noise enough. The  printer suggested old roller composition.  There were loads of it in the big box on  the landing.  The country delegations were formed at  the south of town, and must march  through to the north���a pageant to delight the natives, and fill all rival towns  with envy.  "Ram down that roller composition,"  said the printer, "and they will hear your  old cannon for fourteen counties every  time )��he speaks."  Wilson diil as directed. Watson came  by with the band. Wilson pulled a very  long rod of iron from the fire, ran across  the open space and whipped the red-hot  torch upon the powder-sprinkled touch-  hole of the twenty-pounder.  The powder flamed into a, geyser of lire;  A SAVINGS RANK DEPARTMENT  has beon established in connection with tho Nelson  Branch of this Bank. t.

The roller composition had clung  to the gun's interior, refusing ejectment,  and the camion \va* shattered in a hundred pieces.

How the crowd escaped unharmed  was a marvel no man could solve.,  Watson excused himself while the  crowd was making inquiries, and started  up town for the printer.  Wilson climbed outof the countryman's  wagon and joined his partner in ' the  search.  , A messenger boy ���from the telegraph  office met .them at tlie bottom of the  stairs, with the regulation yellow envelope.  Watson opened it, and Wilson read  over his shoulder. The date was in a  county seat twenty miles away.  "I heard your cannon."

CORPORATION OF  THE CITY OF  NELSON  ."e-_2--I-.-A.-W-   .ETC  34-  WHAT   CUBA   COST   BRITAIN.  The Climate, Claimed More, Victims than the  Spanish Arms.  The island of Cuba was once in the possession of England. The great Drake tried  to storm Havana, but was repulsed. Two  hundred years'later George Kepnel, earl  of Albermarle, won Cuba from Spain  after a terrible struggle. This dearly  won victory, in which thousands of British lives were sacrificed, was afterwards  thrown away by a weak home government under lord Bute. c  In the spring of 17(52 a fleet left Falmouth I'or tho West Indies. George,  third earl of Albermarle. commanded the  expedition, while under him served his  two brothers. On June (ith, 1702, the fleet  cast anchor before Havana harbor with  an army of I l.OOO men on board.  At daybreak on the 7th the siege commenced.  The art of waging war in hot climates  is to choose I hi' cool season; of. the year.  Unfortunately for the ffljfi&ffji&ijJDnbti was  extremely hot and unhe&g&Sraipue month  of June, a'/)d it. was tli^PraroE^f the very  worst season that the siege o'f Havana  could have been attempted. After Havana  had fallen, the oarl of Albermarle wrote  home to the secretary of state: "We are  now better, acquainted with the climate  than we were when the. present expedition was undertaken, and it.is certain  that the only season iu the year for troops  to act in is from the beginning of November to the latter end of March."  The Morro.lJ'o.'t was the chief point of  resistance; it guarded the entrance to  Havana harbor. Supporting the guns of"  the fort were eleven Spanish men-of-war.^  Six of these carried seventy guns, one  carried ninety-four, and the remainder  were sixty-gun ships. It took three weeks  to get the siege guns landed and in position. The Spaniards fought bravely, and  did great damage to the attacking fleet.  By the middle of July the defence was  practically at an end. On August 12th  articles of capitulation were signed, and  the victors proudly set up the British  flag in Havana, nfter a splendid tight for  the richest city in the Indies.  At the assault'of Morro 706 Spaniards  were killed, wounded and taken prisoners. The Spanish loss altogether was not  less than 5000 men, The British lost  itiiO during the light, and by the end of  October (the men had been dying off like  flies from sickness owing to the climate)  the death roll rose to the enormous number of-I70S. '���'.-���  Although Albermarle sent oil' a lot of  the survivors to New York to recruit  their health, the mortality was very great  there, and he eventually found himself in  command of 2000 men. It is interesting  to note that in passing that his estimate  of the force necessary to hold Cuba was  (5000 men. Spain today has more than  80.000 men in Cuba. ���  Thus was won Cuba, one of the fairest  islands in the world, an island which  under British rule would have been one  of its'.most treasured possessions.  ft seems almost incredible that, after a  most costly war, Cuba should bave been  given up for the asking. On February  10th, 17(53. the treaty of Paris was concluded between England, France and  Spain. And thus Cuba passed again under Spanish rule.  Why the South Dislikes Miles.  General Miles, who will have charge of  the United States army of invasion in  Cuba, is not in high favor iu the south.  General Miles was in command of the  troops to whom Jefferson Davis surrendered, and the great secessionist and apostle of state rights was by his command put  in irons. This was in striking contrast to  the treatment extended by general Grant  to Ltobert E. Lee, who was surely as big a  rebel as Jeff Davis. Lee, as is well known,  great soldier though he was, never wore a  sword, and the army was so destitute of  everything that a pocket handkerchief  had to be employed as the emblem of  truce , aud the sword of one of the staff  was the weapon passed from conquered  to conqueror as a token of submission. It  was sufficient to secure from the great  federal captain the treatment that one  generous foe extends to another. This is  contrasted   with the chains  with   which  Whcrcis u petition lins licc-n pn-.s-ciit.ed lo lhe municipal  council of Ihe corpnralion of the Oily of Xelson,  .signed hy the owners of nt leas!, one-tenlh of the  value of the real properly in lhe snid city, as shown  hy (lie hist revised assc���nieiit roll, runiio.-ling lhe  said council lo introduce a by-law in raise the sum of  forty thousand dollars (SIO.OUOj. for l.he purpose of  purchasing- and faking over (lie plant, and franchise  of lhe Xelson Klc-clric .Lijjht Conipany.

Father Ilealey was once breakfasting  with Mr. Gladstone, when the latter, ever  ready for the usual argument, broke out  with: "Father Healey, I went into a  church in Rome once, and was offered a  plenary indulgence for fifty francs. On  what principle does your church grant  such things?" But Father Healey was  not to be drawn. He replied: "Well,  Mr. Gladstone, 1 don't want to go into  theology with you, but all 1 can say is  that if any church offered you plenary indulgence for fifty francs she let you off  very cheaply."
