They Are Bob-Tailed Q. C's.  The dominion has come oub second best  in its contention before the .judicial committee of the privy council, that the  power.to grant the title queen's counsel  rests with the dominion alone. The province of Ontario opposed this contention,  but the counsel for the province was not  called upon to reply. This is taken to  mean that the committee holds that the  provinces, and the provinces alone, have  the right to name their queen's counsel,  and that the dominion title is valid only  in the dominion courts, the admiralty  court, and the supreme court.

The action of the city council in calling  ���   upon the Nelson l_lectric Light company  to submit,a proposition  for lighting the  '   city streets, willdoubblesslead to the opening of negotiations for  the  purchase  of  the plant and franchise of the light company   by  the   corporation.    Jn   response  to   the   council's- request   J.   IT.   Mathe-  son, secretary of the light company, submitted   the following proposition re. the  lighting of the city streets:    "The Nelson  Electric Light Company, Limited, will install   and   operate standard   1200 candle  power arc lamps, for lighting the streets  of Nelson, for $10 per month  per lamp,  or  will  install and operate standard   16'  candle   power   lamps   for   75,  cents    per  month under a five year contract, allowing a discount of 5 per cent from  these  prices for the second year of operation of  each lamp, .10 per cent the third year, 15  per cent the fourth year, and 20 per'cent  the fifth year.    Lamps to be installed aud  in operation by November 1st." .As there  were two stockJiolders  in the light company upon the public works committee,  this    proposition    was    referred   to   the  finance committee for consideration and a  report upon the same may be expected at  the   meeting    of    the    council    Monday  evening.  In  an   interview   with   Tin.   Tismt-NH,  alderman Teetzel, chairman of the finance  committee,  intimated   that   the   finance  committee   would   probably  recommend  the   acceptance   of  the  light company's  offer, as the charges were very reasonable,  but the acceptance would  doubtless   be  conditional   upon   the    light   company's  agreeing to sell out to the corporation inside of one year at a price not to exceed  $10,000.    !n giving his reasons in support  of the argument in favor of the purchase  of  the  plant and franchise of the light  company,   alderman Teet/.el said:    "The  light company asks $10  per  month  for  each arc lamp.    It is likely that the city  will   require  for immediate   purposes 20  such   lamps.    This   will' mean   $200   per  month,  or $2,100 for the   first year.    By  the  terms of  the light  company's  offer  there is a reduction of live per cent for  each successive year after the completion  of the first year of tlie coutract, but it is  more than likely that the additional lamps  required by the city will more than make  up   any   abatement   in   the   charges  by  reason of such reductions.    1 am-sa.tisfied  that the  city  could   purchase  the  plant  and franchise of the light company, after  these city lamps are installed, for $35,000  or  thereabouts.   The corporation would  have  no  difficulty in  borrowing  money  for this purpose at 0 per cent or better.  This would represent an  interest charge  of   $21.00   annually.    The   income  of the  electric light company at the present time  is in the neighborhood of $800 per month,  tind the operating expenses need not exceed $"-!00 per month at the outside, which  ''means that a profit of $500 per month can  reasonably be   expected   upon   the company's operations.   Should the city negotiate a six per cent loan of $35,000 i'or ten  years for the purchase of the light company stock, the earnings of the electric  light plant upon a basis of $500 per month  would be more than sufficient to meet the  interest and  sinking   fund  necessary  to  payoff the loan at maturity, and the tax  payers would not be required to put up  one cent  either5 for  the  lighting of the  city   during  the  period  covered  by the  loan; nor for the payment of interest or  principal upon the loan, aud at the end of  the period would have a light plant worth  $35,000.    The interest and principal upon  $35,000 at G per cent would amount in ten  years to $50,000, to meet  which the city  would have accumulated earnings of $00,-  000. Holding this opinion, I will be in favor  of recommending to the council that the  city enter into a contract with  the light  company for a period of five years forlight-  ing the city streets upon the terms agreed,  which in themselves are reasonable, conditional upon the light company's agreeing  to sell its plant and franchise to the city  inside of one year at a price not to exceed  $-10,000.    This $5000 will cover any additional   expenditures   upon    plant  which  may be made  within  the  year.    If this  recommendation   i.s   carried  out  by  the  council, the corporation of Nelson, while  in     no    way     bound    to    purchase    tlie  stock     of     the     light    company,     will  have   the   privilege   of   doing   so   at   a  reasonable    figure,   and    the   option    is  extended over a sufficient length of time  to enable the next council to deal  with it  as their judgment prompts.  The question  as to whether the city shall  purchase or  not can come before the electors at the  next municipal campaign and be decided  by the people themselves.  ,tors, among them being the two banks,  out $300 or $400 each. Their creditors include sawmill men, who furnished lumber  i'or the building, the contractors and  workmen, wholesale liquor houses, local  stores, and about everybody of whom  they could get anything on time. Their  debts amount to from $3000 to $-1000.  SOUTHERN   KOOTENAY   ON   TOP.  Produces Twice as Much Gold, Silver, Copper  and Lead as the Rest of the Dominion.  A tabulated statement of the mineral  production of Canada for the past eleven  years has just been issued under the authority of the director of the geological  survey. . The statement shows that in the  production of gold, silvei', copper aud  lead, the Dominion has made great headway, and also that the gains in the production ot these metals comes chiefly  from the mines of the southern portion of  West Kootenay, the exports from which  are mostly entered through the port of  Nelson.  The production of gold in the Dominion  has increased from (i(i,0('l ounces during  the fiscal year 18S0 to 131,-108 ounces in  1890, and in value from $1,305,190 to  $2,780,0SG. The gold output of the mines  of southern Kootenay during 1S90  amounted to $2,300,880 or more than five  tunes the value of all'the gold produced  ��� throughout, the rest of the Dominion.  Tho production of copper during 1S8G  amounted to 3,505,000 pounds, valued at  $385,550, and in 1890, 9,393,012 pounds  valued at $1,021,900. Of this latter total  the mines of southern Kootenay contributed $51S,515 or more than one half of thc-  entire production of Canada.  The district's showing with respect to  the production of silver is even better.  Jn 1880 Canada's production amounted to  210,141 ounces valued at $209,090, which  was increased in 1890 to 3,205,343 ounces,  valued at $2,149,503. Of this amount the  silver entered through the port of Nelson  was valued at $1,707,043 or almost five  times the value of the silver produced  throughout the rest of Canada.  With^ respect to lead the section of  West Kootenay served by the port of  Nelson contributed one-third of the Dominion's lead product. The first return  for lead in Canada is for 18S7 when 204.800  pounds were produced, valued at $9210.  The returns for 189(5 were24,199.977 pounds  valued at $721,159, of which the port of  Nelson returned lead valuations of $518,-  515. It should be remembered that the  returns from the port' of Nelson do not  embrace the entire mineral exports of  southern Kootenay, as much of the Slocan  ore is entered at Revelstoke and credited  to the port of New Westminster. Were  it convenient to secure the returns from  this port the comparison would be much  more favorable to West Kootenay, but  in taking only the returns from the port  of Nelson it will be seen that the value of  the gold, silver/copper and lead produced  in southern Kootenay during the last  fiscal year more than, doubled the value  of that produced throughout the rest of  the Dominion. The returns from the port  of Nelson -gave, a valuation of $4,841,459 a.s  against $1,831,249 for the rest of Canada.  CANADIAN   PACIFIC   IN   THE   FIELD.  TURNED   DOWN   AGAIN.  Contemplate Building a Railway From the  Stickeen to Teslin Lake.  Engineer Duchesusiy and the party of  Canadian Pacific surveyors left Vancouver  this week on the Princess Louise for the  north to make a survey from Telegraph  creek to Teslin lake for a line of railway  Avhich the Canadiau Pacific Railway company propose to build. The party will  make from Fort Wrangel i to Telegraph  creek in canoes. In an interview at Winnipeg, Mr. Robert Kerr, traffic manager  of the company, said "there were numerous projects iu contemplation for the accommodation of traffic tliat would be  going in the direction of the Klondyke  gold fields in the spring. Manager Whyte.  who left at noon for the east, intimated  that while in the east with vice-president  Shaughnessy. arrangements were made  for sending Mr. Duchesnay, of the engineering staff on the Pacific division, to examine the route of a projected railway  from the Stickeen river to Teslin lake. A  line of a little over 100 miles is necessary  to connect with navigable waters, and if  the work is decided upon construction  will be commenced as soon as possible, so  as to have the route opened for as much  as possible of the traffic next season."

' 1  200  Our Water Is All Right.  I_. B. Van Ordel, analytical chemist,  whose laboratory i.s in Spokane, writes to  a prominent business man of Nelson, saying that he had just proved by analysis  that Spokane's water supply is impure,  and offering to do the same for Nelson.  Nelson's water supply is all right; but  Mr. Van Ordel might* be allowed to try  his hand at analyzing, the-milk supplied  the people of the town. There is but little  doubt that much of the milk sold in Nelson is a decoction of water, burnt sugar  and acid, and that many of the eases of  typhoid fever and much of the other sickness is directly attributable to the adulterated milk sold in the town. The city'  council has passed a by-law licensing and  regulating milk venders, and it"is time  that the provisions of the by-law were  vigorously and rigidly enforced.  Canadian Pacific Traffic E.eceipts.  The Canadian Pacific railway traffic receipts   for   the  week  ending September  7th, were $492,000; for the same week Inst  year they were $410,000.  Silver Reaches 56 3-4 Again.  Silver continues to gain strength. In  New Y'ork yesterday it wa.s quoted at  -)(.,'. The broker's price for lead was $4,  exchange $4.25 to $4.30. On Wednesday  tlie exchange price for lead ranged from  $4.27'. to $4.32.1, with silver at 5.V,'.  Justice Drake Refuses to Grant H. E. Croasdaile the Injunction He Hankers After.  H. I_. Croasdaile, manager of the Hall  Mines company, is meeting with much difficulty in his effort to introduce government by injunction into West Kootenay.  Before justice Drake in chambers on  Wednesday, the Hall Mines, Limited,  made"another application nominally for  an injunction to restrain the Nelson  Electric Light Company from interfering  with its contracted supply of 00 inches of  water. It will be remembered that when  judge Forin refused a similar application  some time ago' he intimated that if the  mining company could show that it was  not receiving 00 inches of  water it could  then make a fresh application.   This was  done Wednesday morning by W. A. Macdonald, and in support of this application  au affidavit of David Morris was put in to  the effect that the flow of water through  the smelter flume was from 45 to 47 inches.  R. M. Macdonald  opposed  the application on behalf of  the light company.    He  put in an affidavit of John Houston, manager of the  light company, to  the effect  that the Hall  Mines, Limited had always  received  00 inches of water   and  would  continue to  receive that amount during  the period covered by the company's contract,    lie also threw some light upon the  mining company's  motive in moving to  force   the , light   company   to   supply   a  greater   amount   of   water.     He   stated  specifically in  his affidavit  that while 00  inches  of water  would  be   sufficient  to  granulate the slag from the small furnace  it would not.be sufficient to granulate the  slag from  the big 200 ton  furnace which  the Hall  mines company was  at present  using.    An  affidavit from  engineer Cum-  mings was also  put in stating  that there  were (52 inches of water passing through  the smelter flume.    This was backed by a  secoud  affidavit from  city engineer McCulloch, who estimated the water passing  through the flume to be 01 inches.  Justice Drake refused the application  for an injunction point blank. Jf the Hall  mines company, was not satisfied with the  amount of water passing through the  Hume the company should put in a board  and measure the water according to the  Water Act, of JS97. If it was found the  mining company was not receiving the  amount of water contracted for and the  light company still refused to furnish it,  there would be grounds for an action  for damages. -  -  The Present Representation Measure.  The following table gives the different  constituencies in this .-province, the ntim-'  ber of voters credited to each and the  representation accorded each in the pro-,  vincial legislature by the Davie-Turner  government in 1894:  ���   ':       . i.

It was the work of the  Davie-Turner combination, and was the  fairest measure of representation which  they could give the people Of this province  without risking their political lives. By  this means a bare majority of the electors  throughout the province were enabled to  secure over two-thirds of the seats in the  legislature. Is it any wonder that the  people demand a new redistribution bill?  The Gold Hill Deal in Court.  The long threatened suit of Ii. T. Daniel, of Trail, to have the sale of the Gold  Hill set aside, will come before justice  Drake this morning. In July, 1-S90, at a  meeting of the Gold Hill Mining company  held in Spokane, the directors of the company sold the Gold Hill mineral claim to  E. J. Doneen for $1,250 cash. As the purchaser was a brother of the president of  the company making the sale, and as the  directors passed over an offer to bond the  property for $10,000, $15,000 and $20,000,  at 0, 9 and 12 months respectively, there  was a great deal of talk over what was  freely termed a swindle of the shareholders of the Gold Hill Mining company, li.  T. Daniel, one of the largest shareholders  in the company, claimed that the sale  was fraudulent at the time that it was  made and although he threatened suit at  dice this is the first that has been heard  of it. The Gold Hill is a liossland prospect with a speculative value. E. M. McLeod will appear for Daniel and .J. II.  Bowes for the defendants.

The dominion's financial operations  the year ending on June 30th last, are  now known to the finance department  and show a deficit on tho year's operations  of $525,000, which is less than was predicted by Mr. Fielding in the house of commons. The government worked on the  estimates of the late government, which  Provided He "Will Put Up the Required Deposit  and Pay $2.50 for Day Labor.  At the adjourned meeting of the city  council held Wednesday afternoon alderman Hetcher, chairman of' the public  works conimitte, reported in favor of accepting the tender of I.dward Bragg .for  the construction of the sewer provided he  puts up a certified check for 25 per cent of  the amount of the contract as security.,  The Bragg tender tor the work was  $1,514.80, and as it was $3,777.20 lower  than the highest tender, and less than half  the price stated in four others there was  some speculation on the part of the aldermen as to whether the work could be properly performed at the Bragg figure.  Alderman Teetzel asked what responsibility would attach to the city for the  payment of the wages of the men employed upon the work.  Mayor Houston expressed the opinion  that the city could be held responsible  for the payment of all labor employed  upon the work, but that the interests of  the city could be safeguarded by requiring the contractor to furnish, weekly pay  rolls. He further suggested that there  should be a clause in the contract requiring the contractor to pay not less than  $2.50 per day for labor. This suggestion  was incorporated into the report of the  committee which was adopted. -'   .  The specifications upon which the tenders were made call for the laying of an  18-inch pipe from the foot of Stanley  street, along the bed of Ward creek to the  middle of Vernon street, from which  point au excavation is, to be made and  the sewer thrown around the corner of  the Hume hotel into Ward creek and up  the creek ravine on Ward street to Baker  street. This is known as section A of the  main sewer. Section Ji follows the creek  bottom across private lots in three blocks  and comes out in the middle of Ward  street again1'at its junction with .Silicia  street. The Vernon street branch calls  for the laying of an 8-inch pipe along  Vernon street from Ward to Hall street,  up Hall to Baker and along Baker to  Josephine street. What is known as the  Baker street branch calls for an 8-inch  pipe on Baker street from Ward to Stanley street, and from Ward to Josephine.  Tenders were received for the construction of the entire system, and for  the construction of all save section li.  They were as follows :  Kill ire Less  Niiiiii'. -        System. .Section N.

Mayor Houston replied that he understood thatW. A. Jowett had raised an  objection, and iu view of the possibility  of other objections being taken, the  mayor expressed the opinion that instead  of following the bed of Ward creek from  Baker street to Silica street, that the  sewer be laid straight up Ward street to  Silica street. As the majority'of the  aldermen appeared to concur in this view  it is not likely that section "J." of the  main system will be built at present. The  chances are that the council will let it  stand over for awhile and construct a  sewer up Stanley street from Baker street  instead of up Ward street.  The communication of Richardson . &  Perdue asking for the construction of a  sidewalk in front of their new hotel was  filed, the public works committee reporting that there were no funds available for  such purposes. Should the owners of the  property affected supply the necessary  lumber the corporation will supply the  labor.  The council decided to purchase the  man-holes necessary for tne sewerage system from the Albion Iron Works of Victoria, at 2k cents per pound f. o.' b. at  Victoria. The mayor wa.s also authorized  to purchase 50 barrels of cement, 15,000  brick, and 1000 pounds of gasket.  The following accounts were passed:  Thomas "VV.

NOT   AFRAID   OP   KICKERS.  Law  Suits  Have   no  Terrors   for  the   Nelson  City   Council.  The legal firm of Macdonald. &. Johnson  continues   to   bombard   the  city council  with   threats  of   legal   proceedings.   At  Monday evening's session of the council  there were two more communications of  this nature read.   The  first of these related to the contention of the Kootenay  Lake General Hospital Society of a dual  ownership of the city waterworks system.  The   communication   stated   that   if no  satisfactory   answer  was  received   from  the council by Wednesday   proceedings  would be taken.   The second communication  had reference  to W. Hardie's  kick  against the grade of the Stanley street  sidewalk.   The difficulty here is that the  council laid the sidewalk to a grade, while  Hardie built his house in a hollow. Hardie  demands either that the sidewalk be removed or placed on a lower grade to suit  his ideas of sidewalk building.   The city  clerk   was   instructed   to  notify  Messrs.  Macdonald   &   Johnson   that  their communication had been received and placed  on file.  A communication from Jiichardson <fe  Perdue, asking for the construction of a  sidewalk on ths north side of Baker street,  between Hall aud Josephine streets, was  referred to the public works committee.  Samuel Hair's application for the position of plumbing and sewer inspector was  placed on file.  The Nelson l.lectric Light committee  submitted a. proposition for lighting the  streets of the city. On motion of alderman Teetzel, seconded by alderman Hillyer, the proposal was referred to the  finance committee.  The tenders received i'or laying sewer  pipe were referred to the public works  committee.  The plumbing by-law, No. 11, was reconsidered and finall passed.  Ou motion of alderman Teet/.el, seconded by alderman Gilker, the following  resolution was adopted: That in view of  the fact that the city must of necessity  employ a captain of the volunteer fire  brigade, who will be ex-officioJire-inspec--  tor, thus relieving the chief of police of  the duties now assigned to him, the council therefore recommends to the board of  police commissioners that the police force  be reduced from and after October 1st to  two, a chief and one patrolman.

Calkin & Smart  to S. F. Cordingly.  C. F. Goodwin of the Victoria hotel was  on the carpet before the commissioners  on a charge of keeping a disorderly hotel.  As Goodwin promised to keep a quieter  house in future the decision of the board  upon the complaint was reserved.  Judge Forin and the Squatters.',  Judge Forin has declared war upon a  few squatters who have put up small  shacks upon the unopened streets in the  eastern end of the city. It cannot be  shown that the presence of these shacks  inconveniences any property owners at  present, but tliey tire distasteful to county  court judge Forin. and therefore they  must be removed. Some months ago  judge Forin purchased a number of lots  on the rock bluff tit the foot of Baker  street. I'pon these he is now building a  mansion, and because he may live in this  mansion two or tliree months hence he  demands that the city authorities remove  the squatters from unopened streets or"  alleyways forthwith. Strangely enough  the city authorities failed to assist judge  Forin in his work of making the surroundings of his rock bluff harmonize  with his mansion. Instead of ordering  the friendless squatters oil the earth to  curry favor with tho judge, mayor Houston gave them permits to move their  shacks along the streets, and as there is  no scheduled running time governing such  cases judge Forin may have an opportunity of studying the volicity of glacial  motion.  Not AnxiouH For the Contract.  The party who made the lowest bill for  constructing the sowers, and whose bid  was accepted by the city, does not seem  anxious to enter into a contract to do the  work. The city requires that a certified  chuck I'or *_���"* per cent of the amount of the  bid bo depitcd as a guaranty that the  work be done according to specifications  and that $2.50 a day will be paid the laborers employed on the work. It i.s understood the party has gone to the coast.  The city authorities will probably offer  the work to the lowest bidder, and keep  on doing so until a bidder is found who  will enter into a contract.  to Have a Law Suit with the City  Over'a Piece of Water Pipe  Charles I.. Sealey, city clerk, was served  with a writ of summons on Wednesd-iy  in the suit of the Kootenay I/ike General  Hospital vs the City of Nelson. The writ  is returnable in'eight days. By the endorsement of the writ the plaintiff's claim  is for a declaration that they are the owners of a quantity of water pipe laid in the  City of Nelson, from the corner" of Baker  and, Hall streets to the hospital of i,he  plaintiffs, known as the Kootenay L-ike  General Hospital. For an order direct ing  the defendants to cut off certain connections made by them with said water pipe,  and restraining the defendants, their .servants or workmen from making connections tapping or in any way interfering  with said .water pipe." a  This is the first  move in the game of  bluff which the directors of the hospital  society are trying to run upon the corporation of Nelson.   J3y the means of public  subscription   the   hospital   society  some  years ago put in a  connection  with   die  Consumer's Waterworks Company's system in order to obtain a  free  water supply.  The pipe was laid without authority  of any kind across private property and  streets which have since become tlie property of the corporation of Nelson. When  the   city   purchased   the   system  of  the  Consumer's    Waterworks   Compauy,'  ic  made    certain    connections    with    this  pipe   line   leading   to   the   hospital    in  order   to   give   a   few  residents   of   the  city a wtiter supply until the m. w system  is completed.   These'connections did  not  interfere-with  the  water supply of the  hospital, which the corporation continued  to supply free of cost, but the directors  got it into their heads that they could demand a premium from everyone making   .  connections with this piece of pipe, failing which they did not propose that anyone should have water through it.    The  corporation   ignored   this   claim  on  the  part of the  hospital directors, and then  the trouble began.  When the writ of summons wtis read at  Wednesday's meeting of the council, it  caused considerable merriment. The new  distribution mains of the new city system  will doubtless be laid before the case can "  be determined by the courts, and if when  the new system is ready it should happen  that no water found its way into the  piece of pipe which the hospital directors  claim as the society's property, its value  might be very much diminished. Then the  hospital directors might wish to take  water, and there might not be enough  pipe in the city to reach them. They  should really think twice before they decide to act ugly and play the dog in the  manger over a piece of pipe which carries  a free water supply to their hospital, it  might end in their being obliged to pack  water to the hospital whose interests  they were chosen to serve.   -''.-,���  BEST   -WEEK   ON   RECORD '  Mineral Exports of South Kootenay .For.

IHD7  The municipal elections in Nelson and  liossland in April last, illustrate the  growth in voting strength of the district  of West Kootenay. By the provincial  voter's list of 180-1 the voting strength of  the north and south ridings of West  Kootenay was placed at 1-175. In the two  municipal contests referred to there were  1*30 L votes cast, or more than, the total  number credited to the whole district. In  addition to this there was a considerable  percentage of the vote in both cities which  was not brought to the poll, and an even  greater number who were prevented from  voting by reason of the circumstance  that at the time of the municipal elections  they had not resided within the limits of  the municipality for a sufficient length of  time to qualify. These figures show that  in point of population the district of West  Kootenay has'less than half the representation at Victoria whicli it is entitled  to. With respect to area and commercial  importance, a comparison will show the  injustice the more glaring.  The suggestion made by alderman Teetzel that the corporation secure an option  upon the plant and franchise of the Nelson Electric Light company, should be  well received by the property owners of  .lie city, especially as the securing of the  option will not cost them anything. It is  not suggested by alderman Teetzel that  the members of the present council should  , dicker for the purchase of the light company's plant. He does not propose to take  any snap verdict upon the question. The  present council will secure an option upon  the plant and franchise of the light company under which the corporation may  purchase if the people desire it. The people will have twelve months iu which to  make up their minds whether it would be  a desirable thing to pledge the city's  credit for $35,000 for ten years, and secure  an electric light plane which will earn  enough within the period covered by the  loan to repay the interest and principal  upon the same, and light the city streets  free of cost. __  James B. McKilugan of .Victoria, who  was recommended by the city council of  Kaslo for the office of police magistrate in  that city, received his appointment on  Friday. When the city council of Nelson  made a similar recommendation the Turner government ignored the council completely and appointed its own nominee  without consulting the municipal authorities. Premier Turner should get his excuses ready, as the people of Nelson will  call him' to account for usurping the functions of the municipal council. In ignoring the recommendation of the corporation of Nelson, the government took the  control of the municipal police and the  regulation of the liquor business out of  the hands of the people of Nelson, and  gave au irresponsible commission power  to contract debts whicli the corporation  of Nelson is obliged to liquidate.  In a column or so of prattle, the editor  of the Colonist seeks to convince the electors that it will be impossible for the government to bring down a redistribution  bill this session which will more evenly  apportion the representation in the next  legislature, it is not pretended for a  moment that the present representation  is- fair. The injustice exists, but the  Colonist intimates that it will be impossible for the legislature to remove the injustice. The reasons advanced by the  brainy man of the Colonist are unique.  Me argues that: "Being a plank in the  '��� platform of a party whicli expects to  " take power, iu 1S9S, the redistribution  u can certainly not take place before ISO!).  '��� Now we submit that if certain districts  ���' are to be deprived of representation iu  " IS!)!), they ought to know it in' 1808 so  14 that they can vote on the question.  " Again, wlien-will the redistribution of  " ISO!) take effect*. If in 188!), then we will  " have a new election in that year, and it  41 is right that men who are candidates in  41 1808 should know whether or not they  41 are going to be called upon to vote  44 themselves out of the legislature, the  41 next year. If the redistribution is not  ".to take effect until 1002, that is at the  '.' expiry of: the legislature to be elected  " next year, it is decidedly premature to  "talk about it, now. for no living man  44 can pretend to say what the population  " of" British Columbia will be ov in what  " parts of the jirovince it will be in 1002."  It will be interesting to know whether  the views of the Colonist are shared by  premier Turner's cabinet. Does premier  Turner intend to delay any measure of redistribution until IU02'.  James B. Lkighton of Kamloops, is  spoken of tis a probable candidate for  political honors in Cariboo. Since the'  Liberal viciory nf June, 1800, things have  been coming Leighton's wtiy. Shortly  after he was appointed Indian agent at  Kamloops. Last week he resigned this  office for that of general superintendent  of the B. C. Express Company. As the  13. C. l.xpress Company has always been  looked upon as a political-commercial  combination, its .support is counted a  material factor in Cariboo politics. When  the Liberals obtained the upper hand at  Ottawa, the Cariboo mail contract was  treated as a spoil of the contest, and fell  to the lot of Liberals. This changed the  politics of the hybrid combination, and  the chances are that "my government" at  Victoria will be given a chance to study  how evenly the machine will work for its  overthrow during the next election. The  ease with which the B. C. Express Company used to deliver the two Cariboo  seats to the dominant clique at Victoria  was formerly the most amusing feature  in their campaign work. Whether they  will enjoy the delivery so much when the  seats are consigned to somebody else remains to be seen.  The corporation of the City of Kaslo  will shortly call for tenders for the purchase of $12,000 worth of debentures for  public works. The debentures will bear  six per cent interest, and the corporation  has a standing offer to dispose of the same  at par. If Kaslo succeeds in selling its  debentures at par, it will mean that  Kaslo's credit is 25 per cent better than in  June, 1S00, when Hewitt Bostock purchased six per cent debentures at 75 cents.  The editor of the Rossland Miner assures his readers ; that the owners of The  . Miner have no axes to grind. The impression throughout Kootenay is that P.  Aug. Heinze will require a grindstone the  size of a Ferris wheel'to keep up with the  work he has on hand.  Mayor Scott of B-ossland continues to  express to the newspapers his determination to reduce the item of $1*325 per month,  which represents the salaries of city officials. Up to the present however mayor  Scott has not been able to get his determination focused upon the offending item  and it remains unchanged. By voting  themselves salaries and paying fat salaries  to friends, the men who conduct the affairs of Rossland have swelled the civic  salary list to an amount greater than the  total which the corporation can levy upon  the laud within the corporate limits. In  view of this it is uot surprising that the  land owners of Rossland should consider  it necessary to form an association for  mutual protection.  High Grade Ore in the Chapleau.  A. 1_. Teeters is meeting with much encouragement in the development of the  Chapleau, a dry ore property on the north  fork of Lemon creek. ,He has recently  came upon a considerable body of high  grade ore, and expresses the opinion that  he wil I. make a mine out of the Chapleau.  The Hall Exploration company had a  working bond upon the Chapleau, but  threw it up last June. The property is  owned by J. C. Gwillim, Frank Dick and  others.

The city of l<Yankl'ort-oii-lhe-Ma'ii.owes  ifcs importance to the .Jews, and .hielly to  tlie Hothsehild family. It i.s one of the  finest cities in Europe, and is the richest  city in the world for its population, although of late Berlin hn�� .taken considerable business away and litis become the  centre of international banking relations-.  There ji re sti.ll 171 hunks in I/i .mkfor. lo  a population ot 218.000, which is one bank-  to every 1*300 persons. Some of the banks  have a capital of 70,000,000 or 80,000,000  marks. Institutions like the Rothschilds  have a capital that is practically unlimited.    No one knows the amount.  The Jews have obtained all this wealth  and prominence in spite of ostracism,  persecution, and restrictions of many  kinds. When Ansel in Hothsehild wtis  born in Frankfort, what was known as  the .1 udengasse wtis separa.ted from the  rest of the city by high walls and heavy  gates, which were shut at nightfall and  kept closed until sunrise. On Sundays  they were never opened. The walls of  i.he Judengasse were destroyed hy  Ivleber's army in I70(i. In 187*3 the whole  district was condemned as a nuisance" by  sanitary authorities, and cleared out, except a single row of old fashioned houses,  which date from the fifteenth century and  were the homes of the ancestors ol*>l.he  richest and most influential citizens.  The .Jewish population of the city is now  from ...,000 to -10,000, about 10 per'cent, ol'  the total. They monopolize the banking  business, they own antl occupy the most  sumptuous residences, they have the  choicest boxes at the opera, their; horses  antl carriages to be seen in the parks, mid  boulevards, and they buy the inosc costly  pictures. They have a society of tlieir  own indifferent to the .."jealousy and scorn  of the poorer portion of the population  who profess the Christian faith.  The ancestors of the Frankfort Jews  came from Palestine, Turkey, and Spain  to escape the persecution in the thirteenth,  fourteenth tind fifteenth centuries, and  became the serfs of the emperor of 'Cler-  niany, who accorded them protection in  exchange for a fixed tribute which went  into his private purse. In I'M!) Charles  IV., being pressed for funds, mortgaged  his Jews to the municipality of Frankfort  for ��80,000. The sum was never repaid,  and tliusilie inhabitants of the JiHlenga-i.se  passed under the control of the city council, which selected a swampy and tin-  healthful spot on the margin of the town,  ; where they were obliged to reside, and  exacted from them a certain portion of  their earnings or sold their labor at so  '.-much a month. The Jews who controlled  their own time and talent paid dearly for  that privilege, but were shrewd enough  to make a profit aud advance themselves,  slowly but surely. They were not allowed  to use the sidewalk, but were compelled  to travel with cattle and carts in the  middle of the street. They were compelled to wear a distinctive dress. Every  male Jew had a patch of yellow cloth  upon his breast, and every woman wore  blue and white stripes. They vvere allowed only one name.  The man who lived in 52 Judengasse,  which was known as ''the house of the  red shield" because of a sign which the  occupant placed over its door, was called  Ansel m.  The origiual Anselm was a dealer in old  coins and curiosities. He married and  had a boy, who was called Mayer Anselm  in order to distinguish hiui from his  father. He was sent to a rabbi relative  to be educated, tind afterward got a place  in the bank, where he developed remarkable business talent. When his father  died he came home, took his house, his  trade prospered,'became influential among  his race, gained the respect of Christians  as well as .Jews, and was called Anselm of  the Red Shield, or von Rothschild.  But his  fame was only local   until  he  made   the   acquaintance'  of    baron   von  Estroff,  then  Landgrave  of Hesse,  who ���  was a coin collector, and sent for Anselm  one day to 'make some purchases.    When  the latter arrived the baron was engaged  in a game of chess and could not be disturbed.    The Jew stood aud watched the  play.    The baron was checked, it seemed,  hopelessly,  and, turning  to the Jew, he  said:  "Do you play chess?"  "Sometimes," was the answer.  "What  would  you do  if you   were in  my fix'."  The Jew modestly pointed out a move  which the baron accepted and followed  his advice through a game that was soon  wo i. After that Anselm spent a great  deal of time playing chess with the Landgrave, who prided himself on his ability  to beat every one of his subjects. The  baron and the coin merchant thus became  great friends, and there was considerable  ! Professors 'Virchow and Tesla have  agreed that the men of the world die too  young, that we are iu the ante-chamber  of a discovery which will prolong life indefinitely, and that thereafter men aud  women will live, retaining all their faculties for centuries. In a lecture before an  international congress of scientists held  recently in Moscow, Prof. Virchow boldly  announced that the discovery would be  made while yet many of the audience before him were alive, so that perfect men  married to perfect women would raise a  race whose lives would continue through  the centuries, and that the final result  would be that death would be triumphed  over, and mortals would be immortal.  His theory i.s that all life begins in a cell,  that iu life these cells are constantly  wearing out and being replaced by other  cells, that decay begins when through the  taint of microbes there is no longer the  vitality to perfectly reproduce tiie cells  as they decay: that the secret of prolonging life indefinitely lies in finding the universal microbe killer, life's final   mystery.  business between them in the way of  loans and discounts. It was baron von  Estroff who sent IG,S00 Hessian soldiers  to America during the war of the Revolution, to fight on the British side, and received a large sum of money for their  services. When Napoleon came along a  'few years after, the baron had saved of it  about 4,000,000 thalers in coin, which he  took to Anselm and asked him to conceal  for him that it might escape the French  army. Anselm accepted the trust without responsibility, and, as the story goes,  dropped the bags of gold to the bottom  of his well. The French soldiers plundered  his house and took away everything valuable that belonged to him, but the Laud-  grave's money was overlooked.  As soon as the army passed on aud he  could do so without being suspected,  Anselm loaded the. treasure on the back  of a donkey 'and started for Kngland,  where he entrusted it to hi.s son, Nathan,  a young man who Imd gone to London a  few years- before, and was doing a modest  business in shaving notes- and in the coin-  mission way. There the father and son  quietly bought, a little at a time, large  blocks off English, Austrian and German  securities, which were depressed by the  war. Anselm went back to Frankfort,  and there speculated with some of the  money. It was nine years before the  Landgrave returned. In ' tiie meantime  his- money had quadrupled, and Anselm  Rothschild returned it to him, with interest at;*) per cent, which ot itself amounted  to ��150,000, a,small fortune. At first the  Landgrave declined to take the interest,  but Anselm of the Red Shield insisted  that he was entitled to it. It was a very  profitable investment, for the Landgrave  told the story all over Europe, and made  his agent famous, so that every king and  duke and little'potentate who wanted  money sought it of the honest Anselm,  who became known as the "court Jew."  'While the duke of Wellington wtis in  Spain che British government found it  impossible to convey funds to him. Anselm  undertook the duty, and succeded in some  secret way in_tran_portinga large amount  of coin from London to the duke's treasure chest in the southern part of tlie  peninsula, and made an enormous profit  in the transaction.  Thus was laid the foundation of the  most influential banking house of the  world.  Anselm had five sons���Anselm Mayer,  Nathan, Solomon, James, and Carl���who  scattered over l.urope and established  branches of the parent bank at Frankfort  in Vienna, London, Naples, and Faris. As  early as 1S20 they were the greatest bankers in the world, making a specialty of  government loans. While the great banks  are in a measure separate and distinct,  they are nevertheless the same, and tlie  family, now very large, is a single firm  with a single interest.  They have made it a rule to intermarry,  and havedelied the doctrine of scientists  wiio have forbidden the marriage ol relatives on the ground that it debilitates a  race. A Rothschild always looks among  his cousins for a wife: uncles have married nieces, new pews have nmrried aunts.  ��� The Rothschilds have done a great deal-  tor Frankfort in the way of benevolence  as well as business, and it is the custom of  the family to'distribute a large sum of  money among the deserving poor of their  sect annually upon the Jewish New Year.  .The most conspicuous of their benevolences is a public library, which occupies  the former residence of Carl Mayer Rothschilds, and was founded by his daughter  several years ago.  The banking business of the family is  conducted in the same old-fashioned building it has occupied ever since the firm  was established ini the early part of this  century. It is situated where once stood  the gate of the. Judengasse, on the boundary line between the Jewish aud Christian cities. Everything about it is strikingly plain and old-fashioued. ,- There are  no carpets on the floor, and the desks and  finishings are of pine instead of the mahogany that you find in the newer banking houses of the city. There is an air of  severity and frugality about the place.  The calculations of the clerks are made on  the backs of old envelopes, and they still  use lamps and candles instead of electric  light. 'Most-of the employees are members of the family.. The boys of the Paris  and London branches come to Frankfort  to begin their business career and learn  lessons in industry, accuracy and fidelity,  and they generally serve a term in each  branch of the firm in order that they may  know the peculiar conditions and surroundings.  The business ia conducted with great  secrecy. Nobody knows anything about  it, and therefore there is a great, deal of  conjecture and gossip. Some years ago  one of the employees of the house was a  defaulter for a large sum of money. He  was not punished and.not even prosecuted, because it was said the members of  the firm feared they would be called upon  to give evidence concerning their business  relations if they took him into court, and  it would cost them a great deal more  money to have their business transactions  exposed than the defalcation amounted to.  TO   DEFY   TIME.  the principle which keeps life alive, and  as experiments and investigations arc-  now going ou, his thought i.s that the  problem is about solved.  The prolV-s-oi-.shows that as men have  learned more and more of the enemies of  life and how to prevail against them,  human life has been so much lengthened  that centenarians are no longer rare, and  -all that is needed to continue life indefinitely is perfect knowledge. But he is  too sanguine of a near consummation.  There will have to be a change in the  hearts of men. With his theory confirmed aud the microbe killer found, about  six men that might be named would own  the world in fifty years morel It is too  soon for the new era to begin. Man is yet  of the earth too earthlv; it would not do.  It may come at last. It is not an impossible thought. The sun supplies the  material to make its own light and'fire,  and to make it possible for life to exist in  planets millions of miles away, and it can  be imagined that by and by mind may  become such a master over matter that it  can make it as everlasting as mind itself.
