"/  ^  ^^^oNTELSON,' BRITISH"   COLUMBIA, SATURDAY,  NOVUM BUR  12, IMS.  THE   CITY   COUNCIL'S   METHODS.  Saving Which Accrues to tlio City by tho Purchase of the Water and Light Systems.  The Xelson Minor is opposed to the present city council, and iu is doing its utmost to discredit them and the city by  publishing statements that are wholly  untrue. In its issue ol' Friday last, statements are made that are absolutely false  in every particular.  First, .lolin Flliot did not resign the  city solicitorship. On August 1st last he  was dismissed I'rom the position by resolution. All bills he had rendered the city  I'or services had been paid, except one,  and that one was in I.he case of the Kootenay Lake General Hospital Society vs.  the City. 31r. Flliot had not rendered a  bill i'or his services in connection with tlie  Electric Light,Loan iiy-law litigation, and  did not render any bill for such services  until long after his dismissal.  Second. Air. Elliot did not do all the  legal work in connection with that litigation ; in fact, he did very little of it. Following a .well-osLablished custom, Air.  Elliot appointed Tapper. Peters '6c Potts,  of Victoria, as his agents to appear in  court, as the case was to come up before a  supreme court judge in Victoria, and  those gentlemen continued to act for the  city iu the matter since Air. Elliot's dismissal, and will continue to act for the  city until the case is finally disposed of.  Third. The bill, rendered by Tapper,  Peters & Potts i.s open for the inspection  of any ratepayer, and an inspection will  show that instead of one appearance before- the judge hearing the case, over a  do/.en appearances were made. The bill  was referred to the finance committee of  the council in the u-ual way. and payment ordered in the usual way. In fact,  the bill was in tho hands of members of  the finance committee for a week before  it was paid.  Fourth. The statement that Alessrs.  Tapper. Peters & Potts are really solicitor'- for ihe. mayor, and not lor the city,  is -imply ab.v-urd.  Fifth." The affidavits filed in the case  on behalf of the. city show that but two  of the member-; of (he city council .ire  shareholders in the Nelson Fleet ric Light  Company, mmii'ly. alderman Whallev  and mayor Houston. The affidavits also  show that the NeDon Electric Light Company bus is-ued 2,7(.'5 .-hares of stock of  "     " '   hai��.\    Of this  TWO   DOLLARS A YttA R.  the par value of ','10 pet  stock: alderman Whalley i:  10 -hares, which repie-cnf  t!i.-   holder ul  m iiive-I incur  of $100 in ca-h. Mayor lloit-.on hold-' 322  shares, or an inv-vstmetU of ."j*').'**"') in lumi, i  or one-ninth of Liu; capital siocc of the  company. The council ���-ihe members of  which are all largo property holders���believed that the city should own its own  water and light systems. The water system was first pureha-ed from the private-  company thai owned it, and upwards of  $10,000, in addition to the purchase price  of $."5,000, has been expended in extending  and improving it. Today the revenue  from water rates nets the city about $0.10  per month. The electric lighting system  was next purchased from the private  company that owned it, but not until the  purchase was sanctioned by a vote of the  ratepayers. The price paid was par for  tlie stock issued by the company, with 12  per cent, added, the city in addition paying all amounts the company owed on  account of construction. The construction debts of the company amounted to  SJ.100. the par value of the stock issued  to $27,950, and the 12 per cent ou the  stock issued to $3,.'"5-I ; a total of $35.-101.  This is the exorbitant price that the city  has paid i'or a going business thsit nets it  $800 per month. In purchasing aud extending the water and light systems  owned by the city, a bonded indebtedness  of $S5.000 has been incurred. This indebtedness bears interest at the rate of  it per cent per annum, which makes an  annual interest charge of $-1250. To pay  tho principal at maturity requires that  $3100 be set apart for a sinking fund each  year. The,, interest and sinking fund  thus require $7350 each year. The net  earnings of the two systems are $11 50 a  month, or $17,100 annually, which gives  the city.$10,000 clear profit, a sum that  will go a long way towards helping to  pay the general expenses of the city.  These are facts that the ratepayers are  not likely to obtain from the Aliner.  The Sale Stopped.  The sale of ex-mayor Scott's mining  stock,Which was billed for Thursday in  order to satisfy the judgment secured by  Clabon, as compensation for getting.Scott  on the directorate of the Dundee company, has been stopped. Preparations  for the sale were going ahead without delay when the solicitors.for the defense appeared and produced a certified check for  $7,0975.57, the amount of tlie judgment  and easts. Tlie check was deposited with  the registrar as security and the saie was  stopped. Now Air. Scott expects to get a  rehearing of the case. Me was enable! to  do so by depositing the check witli the  registrar. Otherwise theisale would he.ve  gone aiiead as ad vertised.  Hifryhis May  Win in  3:;quimalt.  The Esquimalt election case of Jardine  vs.   Bullen   wa.s    commenced    yesterday  morning  before jus. ice   Irving, and   from  the progre-r; .e.ad'r  Ml:  Hhrgois, i- I'j:  counted ou*, ���.;  officer, being i ''.'  succas-.ful ��� audi  gins bale-is wer'  looks  \vry  mucii as  w'l! come out on ;-op.  ���!.    was  !

Duff is appearing for. the  petitioner and Gordon Hunter for the  respondent*, AV. F. Bullen. Should Bullen  lose the seat, the number of rhe straight  Turner party will be reduced to sixteen  in a house of thirty-eight.  Deop Level Mining in Colorado.  The old mining camp of Leadville, in  Colorado, is showing a great deal of activity. Perhaps the most important impetus  the district has received is the striking of  what is' known locally as'the "-econd contact." The Marian. Aluhala and Aiab  mines, all iu the''.same territory, have  opened up (his lowe'r deposit of sulphide  ores at depths varying from 1,100 to 1,2-10  feet, and their success has stimulated  others, so that there i.s a prospect of a  good deal of deep shaft sinking and exploration work. Another important matter is the linal spirting, after many disappointments and delays, of the Leadville  Pumping Association, which is to drain  the large basin, incuding what are known  locally as the ''downtown mines." This  includes several important producers  whose work has been temporarily stopped  by water. It was impossible to drain one  of these mines without nnwatering Lhe  others, and the co-operative plan was the  ouly one which could bo adopted.  Moyie City's Difficulty.  The Aioyie City Leader says that as  near as can be learned nothing has as yet  been done towards clearing tho Canadian  Pacific railway townsite and building a  depot at the foot of the lake, and at the  present writing Aioyie apparently stands  as good a chance of securing the much  coveted station as does the proposed new  townsite. 'There ate several rumors afloat,  one being that, the proposed C. P. Ii. town-  site is tied up by litigation, and in such  an intricate manner as will require much  time in the,courts to unravel. If such is  the ea-e, Ihe company is likely to again  approach Aioyie for a site for their station  and siding.   Tho Squabble ovev Eciy Placers.

'  Encouraging Tests of Dundee Ore.  A smelter test has been made of two  carloads of Dundee ore. The first car  went IS. I ounces in silver, 2.S5S ounces in  gold, 19.9 per cent, lead, or a total of $77.15  per ton. The second carload went 7.0*5  ounces in silver, 1.005 ounces in gold. -1.3  per cent, lead, or,,a, total of $2S.-10. Recently a test ship^l7B-H^i3Q^:>20 tons to the  Hall Alines smelter-.gaveWjat.urns of over  $50 per ton, an inev0j&0a--^-^lue of 10 percent, over the las't'-shipinent. The ore  came from the 250 foot level.  Heinze SuinfT the C. P. R. Company.  F. Aug. Meiu/.e, late owner of the Trail  smelter, has filed a suit against the C.P.R.  company, in Alontreal, for $100,000, in  which he alleges that the said company  have forcibly taken over certain personal  property, which was not included iu the  sale by him. The G. P. li. company claims  that they bought everything in sight i'or  the sum of $800,000 cash, and have taken  possession ot everything they could find  of Heinze's.   Dominion Revenues on the Increase.  The rcyeuue for .four months of the  financial year ended October 31st, shows a  betterment of $3,o51,0S(i, the total receipts  for this period of 180S being $11,707,(51)7, as  against $11.-110,011 in I.SU7. There was  also an ihcr'ease in the income for October,  the figures for the month just closed being $3,355,17!). as compared with $3,131,803  for October, 1807.  The Lardo-Dunean Railway.  The Lardo-Duncan railway corps of engineers, under J. A. Gray, land commissioner of the Kootenay liajlway 6c Navigation Company, has returned to Ivaslo  from the Lardo and Duncan rivers, where  for nearly two months the work of completing the surveys for that line have  been going on. It is said that excellent  grade- have been secured on both rivers.  A Familiar Railway Kumoi1.  It is reported that the C P. Ji. company  intends as-oom as. the ice forms on tlie  A.nii tocoiiiniruce. on the work of the construction of the branch line i'rom Arrowhead through the J__urdo to the head of  Kootenay lake.

At the meeting of the city council on  Alonday altornoon tenders were opened  for the construction of the necessary  buildings at, the city cemetery and for  the fencing of the same. Tho tender of  Kdward Caw-ley. being the lowest, was  accepted. The .tenders called lor prices  for a picket fence and for a board fence  at so much per foot, for a caretaker's  house and for a mortuary building, and  were as follows :  W.

Squire, on behalf of Kootenay Lodge No.  10, I. 0. 0. J.<\, stating that the society  would take the plot of land selected, and  pay for the same as soon as the agreement was made out. The society will  also attend to the removal of the bodies  of the deceased members of the order  from the old to the new cemetery.  A resolution was passed requiring the  payment of cash for all electric light supplies sold by the city.  A resolution was also passed iu winch  the council went on record to the effect  that the rental of ground and houses on  the main streets to Chinese should be discouraged as detrimental to the best interests of the city.  The council decided to increase the salary of the city clerk from $85 to $100 per  month to date from October 1st. The resolution to this effect was moved by alderman Teetzel, seconded- by alderman  Hillyer.  A communication from John A. Turner,  secretary of the Kootenay Lake General  flo-'pital society, was read, in which the  council wa.1- asked to bear a part of the  expen-e of connecting the hospital with  rhe sewer at Cedar street. The letter  raised some di.-cuss ion as to the desirability of the city making an annual grant to  (he society and having the council represented on'tlie hospital board, but nothing  definite came of it and the communic.i-  tion was liled.  Tlio council appointed mayor rioiuslon  and aldermen liillyer and Gilker to represent the council at the meeting of the  hoard of trade on .Monday next, when the  dcsiiability of Laving Nel-on made a  divisional point by the Canadian Pacific  Kailway Company will be discussed. __  In accordance with the request of Francis 15. Lysaud others, the council decided  to lay a thvo-plank sidewalk from 'he  end of lhe pre.-ent sidewajk to th'- < a-r  end of S ernott stieet and ahmg :\-..u  street to lot No. to, in block No. 22.  Tne city clerk was in-trucled to request  the coroner in cases of future inquests to  call in the medical health officer where  post mortem examinations or medical testimony are deemed necessary-  The Enterprise Ore Chute.  The Silvertonian claims that the Enterprise ore chute is the longest which has  been developed iu West Kootenay. The  Enterprise is being developed and worked  by a tunnel system, there being now five,  principal ones, all of which are driven  directly on the vein and in ore. with the  exception of one crosscut tunnel that_ is  driven near the upper end of the claim  and will tap the vein at a depth ot 125  feet. This tunnel, when completed, will  be 133 feet long, and i.s now in 101 feet.  The property can be drained and worked  to a depth of 000 feet before it will be  necessary to resort to sinking or to erect  any kind of machinery. No. 1 tunnel is  the lowest, down the mountain and has  only lately been started, but ic shows the  ore to be the same as in the upper workings, both as to size and value. This  tunnel will have attained a depth on the  ore body of over 'J00 foot when its face is  directly under the present face oi No. 2  tunnel. The longest tunnel so far driven  is tunnel Xo. 2, which is in a distance o!  770 feet. It has been driven in ore all the  way. An upraise has been driven through  to No. 3 tunnel and measures 183 feet, all  in ore. which shows the paystreak to be  from ten inches to two feet of clean ore.  From No. 3 tunnel an upraise has has  been driven 102 feet, and No. I tunnel is  being driven to cut this raise, there being  still 30 feet, to drive before the tunnel,  which is now in 210 feet, will tap it. s. All  of these raises and tunnels are in ore, and  when remembered that So. 2 tuiinel was  driveninto it without passing through it,  everything points to its being the longest;  ore chute yet discovered in the  province.  MINING   AROUND   SIIiVBRTON.  PROTECTORATE    OViGR   EGYPT.  Although in has been officially denied  that Great Britain intends to proclaim  a protectorate over Egypt, there can be  little doubt.but that such is tlie natural  sequence of the present condition of  affairs. To proclaim it is to call a spade a  spade, since the liritish occupation of the  country has been virtually a protectorate  since 1882, when France declined to join  England in sending an army to suppress  Arabi's"rebellion and restore order. Jie-  fore Arabi's rebellion, France and Kngland .jointly, by the authority of the six  great powers of Kurope,' administered the  affairs of Egypt in the interest of her  creditors. France's withdrawal loft England sole administrator, and Kngland has  never consented to readmit France to the  position she vacated in 1882. Air. Gladstone announced that Kngland would  withdraw from Kgypt as soon as order  should be restored and the country should  be secure from iuvasion and able to standalone. Ihit that time has not yet arrived  aud it has long since been understood  that it would never arrive.  Franco has been irritated to observe  that her desire to re-enter Egypt is considered at .London to be a danger of '���invasion,'' against which Kngland is bound  to provide. All the powers of Europe except France have been well, pleased with  the success of Kngland in administering  tlie affairs of Egypt. The country has  been brought to a higher state of prosperity than, it ever before knew, even under its own Pharaohs. A majority of the  powers have, accordingly, been content  that England should remain in occupation. Franco and liussia have made difficulties, but they are outvoted by the  rest. It has i'or years been open for England to call her "occupation "'���which  marks a vague title���by the more definite  name of a '���protectorate." The Fa^hoda  in'-ident seems to have precipitated the  de.-i-ion to take a step long under contemplation. A protectorate i.s a definite  s:r:!usaud has the advantage of definite  rights and duties.  The declaration of a protectorate is virtually a defiance of France, whose susceptibilities have been consulted in putting  it off so long. Ho far as liussia supports  J-'rance, it is a defiance of Russia also. It  is likely that the recent secret Anglo-German agreement carries Germany's acquiescence in the now move, and tlie assent  of Italy and Austria may be taken for  grained. A majority of the powers, to a  ; i --fain extent, legalizes England's protectorate.    Turkey N nominally the suze-  n.n  ol  _gypt",   antl   1 urkey   has  hart  miles Fi  'otn Arrowhead.

MINING-   NOTES.  (.11 the Evening Star, whicli is being  operated by the Fairmount company, six  inches of ore have been found on the  hanging wall. Jksides this there are  eight feet of quartz, carrying iron pyrites.  There is also a fine talc gouge on the  hanging wall. Tho shaft is now down a  distance ol 53 fact, and under the present  contract i.s to be continued to a depth of  100 feet, so soon as arrangements ;ire made  for the removal of the water.  On the Tamarack 15 men are at work.  The engine bed and boiler are in place,  and connections are being made for the  steam pump that is to be installed. The  shaft house will soon be iini.-hed.  A force of men is developing tlie J-Jlack-  cock, on the north fork of Carpenter  creek, for major Furlong. Winter quarters are being erected.  All the packers and teams in Ymir are  busy transporting supplies and machinery  to the Ymir, Dundee and other properties  in the vicinity.  Where Men Work fov $2.35 a. Week.  There are no street cars running in  London, Ontario, because the railway Go's  '.employees are on strike. Here are some  of the reasons why the strike took place:  Of the 70 men on the payroll, sixteen  have been getting $1.50 a day, ten have  received $1.12 a day, forty-one !.;5.55 a  week, and twelve !.*2.35 a week. The  average pay is thus, little, more than a  dollar a day. For this money the men  have to work as long as the company  chooses to work them: fifteen to eighteen  hours a day is the usual time. Each employee has each year to pay SI3.75 for a  uniform, $11 for a regulation overcoat and'  $1.1.0 for a hat, making a total of _.$25.85.  Out of the sale of these clothes to its employees it i.s claimed the company makes  a handsome profit: i'or example, it instated that i.he contract price of the .uniform for whieh the men are charged  $13.75 is only "i'9.25. Tho company's rules  pre-vs vory'hard-on the men. Thus, if a  trolley pole is broken tlie men on the car  are taxed $ I., for it, although the actual  cost of replacing it is only fifty or sixty  couts. In (rase of an accident the men  are compelled to hunt up witnes-.irs to exonerate tho company, but are not paid  for the time thus lo.--L.  DDHigiuito  Candidates by Colors.

The method of votiug at this election has  been quite an innovation on the pa-t. It  is generally admitted, however, that the  change has not been a success when four  candidates arc in the field.  BRITAIN'S   WAR   PREPARATIONS.  Never Since Nelson's Time Have Such Efforts  Been Made by Britain.  The preparationscfor war which are  being made by Great Britain are causing  much uneasiness by reason of the fact  that the people of the nation are iu utter  ignorance of the causes which render such  preparations necessary.  Themagnitudeofthe.se preparations is  not appreciated. In the first place, it  should be understood that the presence of  the Channel squadron at Gibraltar, ready  for action, i.s an ominous sign. In spite  of its name, this squadron has nothing to  do with the channel. It is at Gibraltar-  to prevent the union of the J<"rench northern squadron from Brest with the  "���southern'squadron at Toulon, the British  strategy being to crush these separately.  Au emergency squadron has beeu formed  from the coastguard battleships Alexandra, Ben bow, Oollingwood, Colossus, Rodney, the portguard battleships Howe,  ISTile, Sauspareil, Thunderer and Trafalgar, and the training service battleships  Conqueror and Hero.  These twelve, with full crews, ammunition, coal anrl provisions aboard, are ready  to put,to sea. while the cruiser squadron,  comprising tli'- Terrible. Diadem, _.**>'i6he,  St. George, Crescent. Europa, Au-tralia,  Galatea. ..Moianipus, Severn, lletribution,  Blonde, Sybille. Latona, Naiad and Mercury, is almost ready. Add to these  eleven torpedo gunboats and no fewer  than 2-1 torpedo boat destroyers. This  enormous force, however, is not specially  concerned with the defence of the channel, which is left to what is called a division of the Meet reserve, the composition of which is never published. This is  supposed always to be ready to mobilise '  at IS hours* nt,; ire.

Thursday evening about nine  o'clock, a body of about 50 miners appeared at the Ajax mine, where two  Chiumen were employed, and asked for  the manager, Mr. Wright, and informed  him that it was for the best interests of  the Slocan country that the Chine-'o  should be kept out and that tho-e that  had drifted into this scetion be obliged  to leave. The manager and his two Chinamen were then escorted down the hill to  the Noble Five concentrator, where another Chinaman has been employed. This  one, too. wa.s persuaded to accompany  the miners, who proceeded to Daly'sville  at the Payne tramway, where another  Chinaman Was adderl to the list. The  four Mongolians were escorted to Sandon,  where, with considerable difficulty, bed-  were procured tor them, which were paid  for by the miners. The Chinamen were  told to bit the trail iu the morning, and  keep going -not to return, to any of the  Sandon mines. The miners then quietly  dispersed.         The Chinese Question in the Slocan.

Shipments   will   be   Made    Prom   the   Silver  Queen   as Soon   as Snow Comes,  Fdward  C. .Finch, who  is superintending-the development of  the Silver Queen  Mining   Company's   proper-y   on    Snow  creek,     reports     --a tisfactory     progress.  Snow   creek    is   a   tributary   of   Cariboo  creek,  and   the  property  owned   by   lhe'  company   consi-t-   of   cicjlit   claims.     ..\s  there has been cnn-iderabie adverse criticism   of   the   company's   operation--,   the  statement of  manager  Finch   re-pectiug  the  same  is of interest.    He  states that  the company is installing a plant  which,  when completed, will mean the  expenditure of about $10,000.     The company has  laid a 20-inch water pipe 750feet to a five-  foot double  noz/.le  J'elton water  wheel,  which   operates a   four-drill   compressor  plant, and the company pipes its air a distance of   7,700  feet   through  a   four-inch  pipe  up  to the mine workings.    During1  the installation of  this machinery there  have been employed 20 men, but tlii�� force  will   be  reduced  to  12 miners.    The property is developed by a sc-jie-- of tunnel's.  The main tunnel run in on flm lead,  wilh  the  crosscuts,   totals 202 feet in   length.  This  tunnel   gives  a  depth  of   110   fee'*.  There are   three  short  crosscut  tunnels  and   a  further  tunnel  opening up a parallel lead, which is now in   15   feet ou  the  vein.    At  present  two  men  are   sorting  ore, preparatory to making shipments by  rawinding 11 miles r.o the Columbia river  at   J3urton   City.    The   com puny    has   a  dozen mules for rawhiding the ore. which  will be commenced   as soon  as   the snow  permits.    The ore is a  sulphide, carrying  gold aud silver  values, with  a small "percentage of   lead  and   copper,  and   when  roughly sorted will   refurn about $30 pet-  ton.    Probably by a more careful system  of sorting, at  a  larger expenditure,   the  value-- could be increased,   but  the man-  asroment deem   it  wi-e   to do...just rough  sorting.  The Cariboo Creek mines are being  steadily opened up. The Golden Hope,  one of the propert'ifs owned by the Cariboo Creek it Canadian Mining Company,  is near the Silver Queen, and a�� -oon as  the Silver Queen compressor begins work  riie intention of that company is to run a  pipe line from its plant and use (he power  to run their drill-'. .J.

The ore is  free-milling, and will concentrate about  10 to I, with values that will average  about $10 per ton. The vein is about 22  inches in width, ami lies in a porphyry  formation. The mine is equipped wirh a  5-drill compressor, a 10-stamp mill with a  crushing capacity of 30 ton- per day. and  an aerial tramway half a mile in length  from the mine to the; niillsite.

IS! 18  That the 'Miner,   of Nelson,  is  not  in  touch with the enterprising spirit of the  merchants and business men of  this city,  and has but ;m_ imperfect  knowledge of  local 'happenings, is  shown by an article  in Monday's issue, in   which it  takes the  people of Nelson to task for what it terms  their lack of cohesion.   There should be  public buildings  in  Nelson,  in   which to  transact the business of the  federal government,   but  there   are  none.     At   the  most,   the   Miner   says,   these   buildings  would not cost more than $50,000, "and if  "' proper representations   were   intule  to  "the   department   of   public   works   no  "doubt  the   accommodations   asked  for  ���' would be granted, but up to the present  " the  city  has taken   no decided steps to  " bring'this about."    It would be difficult  for  the  Miner  to  crowd  more mis-statements of fact into the same space than it  did  in   its article   in Monday's issue,    in  the  first place there   were  no people in  Nelson, nor in the federaTgovernment at  Ottawa, who indulged lhe wild hope that  $'tO,000. would be expended in federal government  buildings   iu   Nelson.    But   tlie  "people of Nelson saw the necessity for the  erection of public buildings  in   Ihis  city,  and   took   decided   steps   several   months |  ago  with a   view   to  securing them.    In j  April   1808,   the city council  sent mayor j  II Mi-ton   to .-Ottawa   to  urge the matter I  with the federal ministers, and the South I  Ivootenay Board of Trade and the .Liberal.  Association ol" the city sent as  their delegate   on   the  same   mission   John   Ayton  Gibson.      They   found    that-   among   the  members  of   the  government  there   was  considerable 'feeling against any expenditure for public bnildiiu.'-" in   Nelson.    The  three departments 'more directly affected  were tlie. postal, customs tind   inland revenue.     When   the   delegates  approtich'ed  po-ituif'ster   general   Mulock   they   found  him   openly   opposed   to any expenditure  for public building-', nnd he  went further  .i-jd said that it was nonsense to advocate  a-M3'  such   expenditure.    Minister   Pater-  son, of the cii-;.oms   department, favored  the expenditure, and Sir   Henri  .Inly   wtis  lukewarm in th" matter.    When the minister of pu'tlic work*-- was approached and  an appropriation of ���s'JO.ODO was asked for,  lie rcplii d that he had been able to secure  an   appi opnation   for Bat   Portage upon  tho citizens furnishing the site for the  buildings. If Nelson could do the same  he might be able to repeat the performance. At about this stage the delegates  from Nelson took another decided step  and signed an agreement offering to furnish the dominion government with a  free site. Minister Tarte then recommended the appropriation to tho' executive, and was supported b.y ministers  Blair and Patterson, but the executive  refused to entertain it. The failure of  the citi/.ens secure the buildings was not  in any measure due to the neglect of  Hewitt Bostock. lie not only urged the  matter before the ministers, but went on  the delegate's agreement to furnish the  site. Had minister Sifton favored the  scheme Nelson might have secured the  buildings, as it was a western appropriation, but he did not favor it. and the mission of the delegates was rendered futile.  In what respect the people of Nelson have  lacked enterprise in this matter is probably known.only to the Miner.  The Tribl'NI': lias been informed from  reliable sources that a saw-off has been  arranged between the government and  opposition forces, whereby 22 of the election cases will be dropped. Four of the  cases will go to trial. The members  whose seats aie contested are Bullen, in  E-quimalt, Booth in North Victoria,  Prentice in East Lillooet, and Dean in  North Yale, two of whom are opposition  members and two government. In the  Esquimalt case an effort is being made to  find room for D. W. Higgins, an ex-  speaker of the legislature, whose friends  believe that he has but to secure a constituency to get a portfolio. There was a  difference of but three votes in the last  contest in Esquimalt between Bullen and  Higgins, and the latter's supporters claim  that he was illegally counted out-by the  deputy returning officer.- Booth, whose  seat in North Victoria is being contested,  was speaker iu the last legislature, having been elected to succeed speaker Higgins. He defeated Patterson, the opposition 'candidate, in the general elections.  In the Prentice case, it is said, a novel  condition of affairs exists, in.that the successful candidate's name does not appear  upon the voters'list. In the North Yale  contest, Dean, the Bostock candidate, secured a small majority: over Hon. G. B.  Martin, which the unsuccessful candidate  naturally says was secured by corrupt  practices. " ���   ... ���  ,  In* Victoria the office of police magistrate i.s vacant, and the press of the capital is endeavoring to impress upon the  appointing powir the necessity which exists for the selection of an able man to fill  so important an office. Tlie Colonist  points out " that the powers of the police  " magistrate are large, and the class of  " people with whom he litis for the most  " part to deal is such that he must neces-  " sari 13' be the final judge in the nuijiirity  " of cases. It is, therefore, desirable that  " the place should lie given to a man cuii-  " versa nt not .only with the law, but with  " the wa\*s of men. Be should be able to  " bring not only some degree of learning,  j " but a reasonable share of experience to  "'guide'him in his labors." How would it  answer to apply this standard to the provincial government's appointee at Ivaslo?  Tin-: provincial government last week  gave notice that'hereafter no, lands or  timber of lhe crown will be disposed of,  except under special circumstances. Persons desiring to purchase are cautioned  against going to 11113* expense in such matters before communicating any alleged  special circumstances to the department  of lands nnd work's.  who for some time has filled a similar  position in tha.t province. The excuse  offered for this course is that the attorney-general intends to reorganize his department, and therefore desired to.have  as his deputy a man familiar with the  work. With the old government tlie  complaint wtis that all the public offices  were filled with Englishmen. This cause  for complaint has evidently been removed, and the province will henceforth  get its civil servants from Manitoba.  At the recent assize court sitting in  New Westminster the grand jurors had  the advantage of having tho .ittorney-  general of the province iu attendance  svhen their presentment was read. Thuy  took advantage of this circumstance to  refer in it to the injustice which obtains in  British Columbia, in obliging men to travel  all over the province for service ou the  grand jury without allowing them any  remuneration for their service nor the expenses which the3r are put to in connection with it. The result was that chief  justice McColl toak up the matter, and  from the bench suggested to the uktorney-  general that something should be done in  the way of removing the grievance. The  people of the province have therefore tho.  satisfaction of knowing that a lonpr-stand-  ing injustice has at least been brought to  the attention of the government:. The  presentment of the Westminster grand  jurors cannot now follow its many predecessors to the convenient pigeon-hole.  The provincial government on Thursday issued regulations to the effect that  in future no gold commissioner, mining  recorder or any employe under them will  be allowed to take out a free miner's license, nor will they be allowed to acquire,  either directly or indirectly, any interest  in any mineral claim. All such., officials  and employes of the government are required to furnish the department of mines  with a list of their present holdings and  interests in mineral claims, which they  will be permitted to keep alive.  Persons or communities desiring any.  expenditure by the provincial government upon public works are requested to  forward to the department of lands and  works (1) description of the work desired,  (2) reasons-which make the work desirable, (3) in case of roads or trails, a rough  sketch of roads or trails in the neighborhood of such work, (-1) an estimate of cost,  and (5) whether any persons or companies  benefited  will  contribute to  the cost of  the same.

A    RAT   SPREADS    PLAGUE    AND   DEATH.

Ple was
A.veritable tragedy of  modern  science
is the outbreak oi*" the  bubonic  phigiie'in
Vienna.    It has already  killed  a doctor
and a laboratory assistant, and threatens
.  the lives oi' many other persons.
In Professor Nothn-igal's laboratory,
where this outbreak originated, experiments have been conducted with the
plague germs since the outbreak iu the
East, nearly two years ago, oi' the most
dreadl'ul of all epidemic diseases. It receives great attention from the medical
profession of Vienna, because, onaccount
of that city's proximity to tlie East, the
plague is more feared there than elsewhere in Europe.
Barisch, tlie original victim of
enna laboratory, owetl his deatli,
ing to v-lu. latest report, to a rat.
an assistant in the laboratory. The doctors had been making experiments with
anti-toxin on the rat. In the first place
the germs were injectedinto the animal.
Then it wtis put back into its cage, in order that the disease might develop and
the anti-toxin be tested, llariscli \v;i,s ordered to report on the conditions of the
animal. Familiarity with such experiments had made him careless, instead of
looking at the nit from a safe distance he
took it out*. He held it too loosely. Quick
, as lightning it twisted and bit deep into
his thumb. The dumb victim of science
took an awful revenge. Its, sharp teeth
carried the germs right into the man's
circulation.
For three days Barisch went about tlie
city as usual, visiLing friends, drinking
beer and enjoying the largest possible
amount of social intercourse. 10ven a.l'ter
he began to feel ill he said nothing about
what had happened.
At the cud of three days he was stricken
down with the plague in its worst form.
He had swelling in all the glands of his
body, blackness of the skin and terri'ole
vomiting.    In eight hours he died.
Dr. Mueller treated him. In three days
he developed the plague and died. Two
women nurses, Alb in e Pechaand Johanna
Flochegger, were dreadfully ill, but recovered.
Six.other eases then developed. They
were treated in an isolated building. One
physician, Dr. Pooch, who ■volunteered
for the work, stayed inside the building.
He wrote his prescriptions and held them
against the window paue iuside. They
were read by other physicians outside.
AH coutact between ocenpauts of the isolated building and outsiders was avoided.
Rats have long been dreaded as a means
of spreading plague infection. ■.■ Tliey
spread it in Hong Kong and Bombay, two
cities where the disease has raged recently.
Wherever the pestilence has appeared
vast quantities of dead rats have been
about the houses. This was particularly
true during the last epidemic in Bombay.
After the dead rats had been seen the human death rate became high. It is conjectured that after one man had been
killed by the plague the rats attacked the
dead body. . The rats carried the infection to other houses. The germs clung to
their hair and whiskers. The animals
contaminated human food, then sickened
and died. Their bodies were ealeu by
other rats and vermin. Thus the disease
wa.s spread far and wide. It is also probable that soiled dressings were carelessly
thrown away and gnawed by the rats.
Robert Jatfray's Narrow Escape.
Robert JalTray, who gave his post ofliee
address as Toronto, Ontario, had a narrow escape at New Westminster last
week for being committed for contempt
of court, if the press leports are true.
The Toronto man was never heard of in
the west until the commercial value of
the coal deposits of the Crow's Nest Pass
was established. Since then he litis made
one or two voyages of discovery to the
Pacific province. Last week he was at
New Westminster, and desiring1 to see a
court where the judge and lawyers wear
wigs and gowns, he sought adniis^iou to
tlie court of chief justice Mc-Coll. In doing so he came upon a blind door aud
tried to pound his way in. This, of
course, upset the dignity of the chief justice, and he diiected sheriff Armstrong to
seize and hold the body of ihe riotous
person who so rudely disturbed his court.
The sheriff, accompanied by registrar
Cambridge and a constable, went out by
another door—for the one Mr. Jaffra.y
was banging at does not open at all—-a.nd
hauled the culprit before the chief justice,
it so happened that Jalfray was not
known either to the sheriff, tlie registrar
or the chief justice, and l hough he humbly explained llitit he had no intention
whatever of interrupting proceedings, he
might just as probably us not  have been

NEWS   OF   THE   WEEK.
The 1 talian cabinet has taken a lesson
from Joseph, and is organizing public
granaries against a time of famine. The
formidable riots at Milan tmd elsewhere
last May were due to the sudden rise in
the price of bread, caused by speculation
in wheat and flour. The government intends to guard against this in future, and
the grain will be sold to the public at cost
price.
In Spain the throne is tottering, and
with it will fall the last of the house of
Bourbon. This year, they say, will be
marked in history with the end of that
royal family. Senor Carvajal, a former
minister, is convinced that Spain's monarchy cannot endure beyond Christmas.
Senor Castelar finds the fall of the regime
inevitable and near. General Martinez de
Campos has offered the assistance of hi.s
sword to preserve the dynasty. The student of political economy is more likelj'"
to wish well to the revolution, in the hope
that it will be a purgative to the social
body.
During the civil war in the United
States -10,000 men were killed in battle and
oG0,000 perished in camps and prisons.
From official figures, covering a period
from May 1 to September "JO, the total
number of deaths as a, result of the recent
war wil h Spain was 2,fiOG. Of this number !07 were officers. . At Santiago the
loss of life was twenty-two officers and 222
men. This is an average of one officer for
every ten men. At Cardenas one officer
was killed. Since the battles on Cuban
soil sixty-one men have died of wounds
received in service.
The political forces iu the Cape parliament appear to be about as evenly divided
as those in this province. Dr. William
Pissett Berry ii nn independent progressive or moderate. Ho was elected speaker,
aud tiie government was forthwith
beaten. Some of the extremists among
the progressives desired Dr. Berry to resign, so as to force the bond to weaken
their exceedingly narrow majority by appointing one of their number iu his stead.
Dr..Berry declined to make the speakership an incident in party warfare.
The Baroness de Roque, mother of Mrs.
Maybrick,  still continues her efforts  to
release her daughter from the life imprisonment to which Mrs. Maybrick is
condemned J'or the murder of her husband. The baroness has had a conference
with Mr. Henry White, United States
charge d'affaires, and has visited Mrs.
Maybrick in prison. Lord Chas. Russell,
the present chief justice, defended Mrs.
Maybrick on her trial, but he has shown
no inclination to aid iu her release.
The Victorian legislative council, New
South Wales,.has thrown out the woman
suffrage bill by a vote of 19 to 15. The
bill has been endorsed by two successive
parliaments in the popular house, but the
members of the legislative council, despite popular opinion and curtain, lectures, have persistently blocked the
measure.
There is a report going the rounds of
the eastern press to the effect that D. Mc-
Nichol, general traffic manager of the
C. P. R., estimates that "30,000 people have
gone to the Klondike this year, and that
20,000 of them will return to their homes
without having reached the goldfields.
Each man carried with him an outfit costing several hundred dollars, and his traveling expenses were not less than $2">0 or
$.'M0, making a total for each of nor. loss
than $(iOO, or a grand total of $90,000,000.
The percentage of votes polled for prohibition in the different provinces wa.s:

First British Bill of its Kind.
The old age pension bill which was recently passed by the New Zealand legislature had ti stormy time in passing through
the various stages. Night sittings were
held, and all sorts of amendments to the
bill were proposed., At 7 o'clock one
morning, when the house had been sitting
many hours, tlie premier (Mr. Seddon)
told tlie house that the only alternative
lie could suggest to going on with business would lie tlie adoption of the closure.
After a long fight the opposition had to
give up, and the bill was passed through
committee. In moving the I bird reading,
tlie premier, Mr. Seddon, said the bill wtis
!l() hours iu commitr.ee, but by strength of
will and tenacity of purpose had reached
the present stage, and thousands in the
future would feel grateful i.o parliament
for its work. The New Zealand legislature's bill is the first of its kind passed by
any Hritish legislature.
Capable Official Removed to Make Way I'or
Some New Favorite.
EniToi" of rim Triijuxk: It lias frequently been said that the spoils system
is being introduced into British Columbia.
However that may be, an event has just
occurred here which looks exceedingly-
suspicious, aud has created a great upheaval of popular feeling. I refer to the
discharge of R. B. Thompson from the
government office here.
1 doubt whether British Columbia ever
had a more satisfactory public servant
than Mr. Thompson. He was capable,
conscientious and courteous in the highest degree. He was'popular with prospectors and with all other classes of mining men.
Mr. Thompson never was an active
party politician. No doubt he had opinions, and perhaps stated them ; but he
always remembered that he was the servant of the whole people, and acted accordingly.
When it was rumored that Mr. Thompson was to be discharged the indignation
was universal. The most active supporters of the present government' in this district, men whose character and influence
gained ninny a vote both for Mr. Hume
and Mr. Green, wrote at once to the minister of mines, and asked him to retain
■ Mr. Thompson. The minister of mines
was warned again and again by his own
supporters that lie was about to commit a
terrible indiscretion. But he remained
blind and deaf to everything, and the axe
fell. - ' n
The perpetrators of this despicable job
have iu ven ted what they call a reason for
their conduct. It is worth mentioning,
because it is an example of the sort ot,
things weak men will say when they are
cornered'.* Mr. Thompson was only the
gold commissioner's clerk, and, as such,
he discharged all the duties of a mining
recorder. Now, however, the man who
discharges these duties is to have a new
name. He is to be called mining lecorder
and to have a higher salary. This, we
are told, is not the spoils system. It
would never do to discharge a good and
faithful servant, and appoint ano!her.under the .same name: but it is all right to
appoint ;i novice to discharge exactly lhe
same duties, provided only the.name is
changed.
1 hope the Tiiim'.vn will take up this
scandal and give it iill the publicity it deserves.    Your obedient servant

SLOCAN   MINING   DEVELOPMENT.
HARNESSING   THE   OCEAN.
Thomas A. Edison, Jr., who seems destined to be a worthy son of his great
father, is about to give the world a new
surprise. lie i.s not to be outdone by
Nikola Tesla, -who is doing' all sorts of
things with the elements, nor by his great
father, the Wizard oi'Monlo Park.
Young Edison now comes to the front
with what he considers a feasible, practicable plan for harnessing the only element
that has.heretofore escaped— the ocean.   .
For'-, many weeks the New York offices
of Thomas Edison, Jr., have been wrapped
iii secrecy while his plans were maturing,
but in a very short time a great syndicate
of British and American capitalists will
hang out its shingle on Broadway, prepared to sell heat, light and power- in
"quantities large and small. The scheme,
now about to materialize, is this: Wave
'motors'sunk to the bed of the sea will
■ generate power by means of the fluctuation of the tides. This power will produce compressed air, which will be stored
in great quantities. From this great reservoir, of compressed air a network of
pipes and mains will undermine the city
and convey the air to factories for power.
The balance of the compressed air will be
utilized to run dynamos, which will generate the electrical currents for heating
and lighting. •
Wave motors are not an innovation in
the field of science. For manyyears they
have been tried, both in the east and ou
the Pacific coast, but the promoters and
builders have never been able to turn
them to practical use. It remained for
Thomas Edison Jr., to accomplish this,
and he lias only just succeeded after.years
of experiments.' Since March 30 young
"Tom" Edison's contrivance has been
tried on the shores of San Francisco bay,
when the most satisfactory results were
obtained. Pacific coast capitalists have
watched the experiments and performance of the wonderful wave motors, and
are satisfied of their utility.
A. new and larger plant is now in course
of construction near San Francisco, which
will actually supply the metropolis with
heat, light and power. Mr. Edison has
already selected a site for the first plant
for New Vork, but owing to the difficulty
of obtaining a franchise, has judiciously
kept the secret of "t he location from the
public, just as he litis the names of the
capitalists who are to form the company.
Young Edison says with respect, to his
invention: "We are now about to begin
operations in earnest. We have obtained,
the.necessary patents, and will soon have
enough capital to begin ou a large scale.
The San Francisco plant has proved so
satisfactory that T^ am ready to begin
operations in New York. The syndicate,
which is com nosed .of foreign and American capitalists, will soon be formed. We
have selected a site for the New York
plant, but J do not think it would be judicious to tell the location just yet. Several engineers sire now iu San Francisco
with specifications for the new plant,
which will soon be completed. One of
the great difficulties of wave motors 1
have successfully overcome!. -At-the ebb
tide there is little: motion. This lias always proved troublesome in previous
wave motors. Hy storing the power the
difficulty vanishes.

The Ledge: The Mollie Hughes will be
worked this fall aud winter.
About 150 feet of tunnel 'will be driven
on the Lost Tiger this winter. The property is on Silver mountain, and is'owned
by 11. Clever. In digging a place for the
cabin a new lead was uncovered, which is
not surprising, as the owner of the claim
is one of the most fortunate men in the
district.
The Congo group, on Ited mountain,
southeast of New Denver, is improving
greatly with work. Here is where the
great gold strike was made some weeks
ago. The-ledge has widened with depth
and the ore body is improving. It carries
principally copper and gold. Parties returning to New Denver from the property, who are iu a positiou to know, state
that it very much resembles the richest
ore of the Rossland camp.
Seven inches of clean ore came into the
face   of   the   tunnel   on  the Movvich  on
Tuesday last. The tunnel is below the
wagon road.' This claim is owned by J.
A. Finch..Neil Gething and Con Fielding.
A chute of ore, rich in grey copper, has
been traced for nearly 200 feet on the
Convention and Merrimac claims, on
Silver mountain. The Merrimac is owned
by Nate Tucker and George Long, and
rhe Convention by A. Behne and A. E.
Fauquier.
About three years ago George Long
and Nate Tucker discovered a lead on the
Marion, Last week they sold the information to two of the owners, Mclnnes
and Marino, for ■*>'">().
Last week the Payne shipped HiO tons,
Ruth GO, Sloean Star 120, total for the

Considerable work will be done on the
March .Bird group this fall. This property adjoins the Mollie Hughes to the
southeast.
In September the Alamo shipped 210
tons. Since July 1st the Alamo hits
shipped -130 tons ; the Idaho 3!)0 tons: the

Those present were Mesdames Roderick
Robertson,' Goepel, Arthur, Day, Taylor
and McCulloch, mayor Houston, judge
Forin, Dr. Hall, E. A'. Crease, J. A. Turner. J. H. Bowes and George Kydd. it
was decided that a membership fee should

Considerable work has been doiie upon
the Exchequer company's claims, but the
Neelands purchase was-clue more to the
discovery of a. new ledge than to the results of development. From the crop-
pings of the new: ledge some very high
assays have been made. The stock secured by Neelaad's was held by George H.

A fatal accident occurred at the Porto
Rico mine at 9 o'clock Thursday morning.
Albert Know I ton, a miner, who was employed in driving an upraise from So. S to
So. 2 tunnel, was found lying face down
in a pool of water in the upraise. His
partner was found near a ladder at the
foot of the upraise in an insensible condition. He was-taken to the surface, and
by means of artificial respiration, was
brought back to his senses. A similar-attempt was made with Knowlton, but it
was unsuccessful. The presumption is
that the cause of the accident was the gas
resulting from blasts of giant powder.
