 ��� y  ^  |Vv  I  STIRRING   SCENES   IN   PARIS  Heavy Sentences on Conspirators.  Paris, January 4.���M. Deroulede, still  weak from  his  illness, entered  the  hall  leaning  on  M. Barillier's   arm.    Among  the public were M. Deroulede's daughter  and   brother   and   quite   a   number   of  women friends   of the  prisoner.    After  the  reading of yosterday's  decision, M.  Fallieres   ordered the  expulsion  of  the  men acquitted, tind the public prosecutor  asked for tho application  of   sentences  against; the convicted.    M. Buffet's counsel, M. Normande, followed in behalf of  his client and began to expatiate on the  hitter's   sentiments,   when   M.  Fallieres  stopped him and told the lawyer to keep  away from   the  question  of   sentiment.  "Well,"  said  M.  Normande, "strike  my  client, so that the country may judge of  the hate and fear which  animate  you."  M. Fallieres interrupted counsel with the  remark, " You are insulting the court."  M. Normande rejoined : " M. Buffet leaves  this court greater than he entered it, and  he will became greater still in prison."  M. Buffet then said:  " You have dealt  me a blow.    Thank you.    You have condemned the government twelve times, |  and 1 thank you twelve times.     I do not  want to benefit it by the  Bex-enger law.  If there were demonstrations tomorrow I  would take part in them.    I do not want  pity or indulgence."     M. Deroulede then  x'ose and said : " Since you have coupled  me with the valiant x-oyalist Buffet and  the courageous anti-Semite Gouin I will  share their pay.    But, however hard may  be the   sentence, however   distant   the  exile which is even more  cruel for  me, a  patriot and soldier, I will x'eturn.    I will  return when justice returns.    I  shall  be  free when the nation becomes free.   I am  here by Loxibet's orders, sti'ike me then.  Accomplish   that    which    remains   aud  , double shame on the history of parliament. Vive l'armee national.    Vive lare-  publique du peuple."  M. Deroulede was listened to in profound silence, but his passionate utterances caused a great sensation. M. Gueriix  said he did not wish to make any further  defence. He would not utter a word of  repentance or appeal for indulgence, adding: "Whatever my trials and sufferings,  I will say to my friends 'Courage, confidence.'"  M. Deroulede again x'ose and said : "I  desire for the-first time to shako hands  with these men. I met them liere and I  have learned to esteem them. M. Deroulede then shook hands with M. Buffet  and Guerin. M. Buffet cried : "This is  tho first and perhaps tho last time." M.  Guerin said: "This is the first' time we  are in agreement." M. Deroulede shouted  sarcastically :     "Yes, here is the conspir  $lliss*3&  PUBLISHED AT NELSON. BRITISH COLUMBIA.  GERMANY    IS   IN   A   BLAZE  FRIDAY MORNING, JANUARY 3,   1900.

The war office has invited sir William  Thompson to accept the post, of chief  surgeon to the forces in South Africa, instead of consulting surgeon.  The admiralty programme embraces  the stationing of small squadrons at Durban, Simon's bay, Port Elizabeth, Lorenzo  Marque/.,'St. Vincent in the Cape Verde  islands, and Cape Town, and sending an  additional ship or two to Adeu. It is  announced from Rome that British  agents and detectives are secretly watching all the ft'ilian ports.

Huntoii, rector of Christ Church, dismissed his congregation on Sunday last,  because the choir had not complied with  his request to turn to the east when  chanting the "Gloria." The outcome of  the incident is awaited with interest.  Little News From the War  Rensburg, January 4.���The British  casualties to general French's forces up  to the afternoon of January 3rd were  five men killed and 24 wounded. A detachment of the 25th New Zealanders  had a narrow escape while advancing on  Colesburg. They were directed to occupy  a kopje, bxit met with a hot reception  from a concealed force of Boers. Another  body of British troops, seeing their  danger; doubled to the rescue of the New  Zealanders and their retreat was successfully accomplished under cover of the  guns on the hills.  London, Januai-y 5.��� a . a.m.��� This  morning's news throws no further light  upon the situation. The: exact .position  at Molteno is not yet clear, but  in. 'any case these little engagements tire of small importance, beyond  proving that the British forces are beginning to attain a greater degree of mobility. It is fully expected that next  week will see a heavy battle on the Tu-  gela river, which is now the pivot of the  campaign. The Boers appear to be wox-k-  ing with shovels and picks. Lord Moth-  ucix's cavalry scouting has developed the  fact that the Boer entrenchments extend  forty miles, far overlapping the  British positions and making flank  attacks exceedingly difficult. Military men ,affirm that - the Boer  trenches confronting general Buller  stretch away some seventeen miles, and  that worked upon them is pushed unremittingly. While the advance is delayed flank movements are rendered most  difficult, because long marches are not  dono with celerity and it is hardr to time  an attack with certainty.  The extent of the Dutch rising may  now be measured by taking a line from  Prieska on the west, to1 Ilerchel, or  Barkly, on the south. ' Along the whole  of this line, except at points actually  occupied by the British, the population  seems for the most part hostile.  .*?

C, January 4.���(Special to the Tribune.)���Opposition hopes  were high for a short time this afternoon, the government being caught  with only seventeen 'supporters on the floor while the other side mustered their  full eighteen. After his honor's speech a resolution offering to the Dominion  a company of mounted scouts, to be raised, equipped,-and delivered at Halifax at the expense of British Columbia government was moved by the  premier, seconded by the leader of the oi^position and supported by  everybody, the discussion which promised to be protracted being cut short  by Helmckeu moving previous question.  Premier Semlin then moved that-the governor's address be taken into consideration on Tuesday next and Turner opposing without debate, and calling  for division, the premier found himself in a minority of one. Accepting the  situation, Semlin philosophically made another proposition that the house  at its rising stand adjourned until Monday next. Still without debate this  too was voted down by IS to 17, and Mr. Turner took command with the  motion that the adjournment be till Tuesday next. Since Wells of East  Kootenay was on his way from Vancouver, all the government had to do to  down Turner was to keep debate going until recess, which was done, and  when the house again niet sides were even Avith speaker's vote available to  secure the govei'nment.?'*-;-!^;.;; ���'.-.. . .;.  Prentice, one of their supporters'has not yet arrived. Joseph Martin came  unexpectedly from Nanaimbhaving caught the Joan, making special trip  "from Vancouver to.'the coiil city. As to this incident the Times says: " Mr.  Ralph Smith received the following- telegram from Nanaimo this afternoon:  o'The late attorney general arrived by the Joan, Avhich was "sent specially for  him, and he is xiow proceeding byf-special train to Victoria. This is an  interesting bit of information, continues the Times.' "  McPherson today voted with the government on tho divisions so that his  alliance Avith Martin is not so close as the ex-attorney general seemed to  expect.  The arrival of Wells tonight saved the government for the time being. J-  II. Turner's motion was defeated by the speaker's casting vote, and Semlin  similarly carried the motion to adjourn until 3 o'clock on Monday. The  members of the opposition are building hopes on Prentice, AAiiose alliance to  the government is reported to have been someAvhat shaken during recess. D.  W. Iliggins signalized-his bolt from the government by giving notice of  fourteen motions and questions, sonic of- matters referred to being the  correspondence on the - eight-hour law ; tho Pacific cable million vote; the _  reduction in the wages of road woi-kmon in Victoria district, and the collection of stumpage tax in Kootenay.

Nkw Denver, January 4���[Special to  the Tribune.]���A meeting of* liberal conservatives AA'as held here last night. The  Tribune newspaper audits corresj-ondent  iu New Denver came in-for. a good deal  of vituperation from one of the speakers,  A. E. Fauquier. His remarks Avei-e not  well received by the meeting. As a result of the deliberations, a Liberal Con-  serA*atiAre association will be formed.  here.  Iu connection Avith the departure of  L. R. Forbes this Aveek, to join the Calgary section of the Canadian contingent  of troops for South Africa, it may be  stated that the citizens presented him  with a cordially Avoided addi'ess and a  bulky ���'purse. Angus Mclnnes, mining  l-ecorder, read the address at the whai-f,  aud made "������the pi-esentation, which  amounted to $1S7.' Of this sum the good  people of Sih'erton contributed $70, the  balance being raised among the' citizens  of New DenA'er.  On Tuesday the following fii*e wardens  Avere elected for this town: Frank Py-  man, John Williams and E. Angrignon.  The first payment on the Hartuey  gx'Otip, on Sih'er mountain, AA'as made on  Tuesday through the Bank of Montreal.

A copy of the manifest of  the Bundesrath has been published, show-'-  ���ing that her cargo did not contain contraband. Tho,owners declare that there  is absolutely no foundation for the statement that saddles and other Avar materials have been found amid the cargo of  the Bundesrath.  Berlin, January 4.���The seix.urc^L'the  Imperial mail steamer General lias considerably aggravated the situation'here,-  and the indignation against England is  intensified.  The government, hoAA'cA'cr, is still  earnestly endeavoring to preserve correct  official relations'. No answer that is con--  sidered'satisfactory litis yet been received"  from London and, according to advices  here, none is to be expected fdr several  days longer. Today's neAvs, hoAvever, induced the German goA'ernment to send  another protest to London.  Significant of the intensity of Germany's indignation against England in  this matter is a declaration published today by the Gei-man colonial society among  Avhose 80,000 members are a number of  reigning German: princes, which "says :  "England's recent proceedings against  Gei'inan A'essels are an outrage. The factf-  remains that the small respect which' the  English people feel for Germany because  of her deficiency iu naval powei% has  taken such deep root that the commanders  of English warships hasten to commit  -breaches ~of international rights so long  as only Germany is thereby touched)'  This lack of fear to touch the German  flag must be thoroughly and speedily  cured." Indignation meetings have been  called by branches of the colonial society.  The German press, Avith hardly an exception, thunders against England.' -Even  the semi-official Berliner Post says': "It  cannot be denied that the indignation  aroused by the Avilfulness of the seizures  by British - commanders, is spreading in',  wider and wider circles."

Untrained Mules Make Trouble:  *'I am afraid the British  are  going  to  experience a good deal  of  trouble  with  the mules   they are   sonding   to  South  Africa," said a well posted  New Orleans  stockman.    "As I understand, from conversations Iliave had  witJi  the  oilicers,  the animals are intended principally fOr  pack   trains,  and  to   make   themselves  available for such  service requires  considerable training.   The best mulepackers  in the world are to be found at our army  posts in the west, and  they arc  considered so  A-aluable  that   they   receive  as  much   pay as    lieutenants.    They  have  of ten told me that it takes from  two to  three months to get a new  mule  lit  for  duty, and it  is  very  interesting   to see  them putting fresh animals through their  paces.    When properly broken the pack  mules are as reliable as a chronometer,  and a great deal less trouble to  care for.  They will follow their leader up hill and  down dale  over any   kind   of   country,  and   nothing    can   scare    or   stampede  them.    A train  of green  mules  on  the  contrary, is as hard to handle as an  able-  bodied eel.    They are  continually going  off at tangents, falliug out of line, lagging behind or running  away.    The  professional breakers have the reputation of  being  the  most  'fluent   cussers   in   the  world, bar none, and having seen some of  the  tumulations, I am  inclined to  deal  mercifully   with   that   weakness.      The  British will have  no time to  train  the  big consignments that are going to South  Africa from New Orleans, and I'm  waiting to bet that the whole lower cud  of  the Transvaal will be full  of wild  mules  inside of tho next sixty days.    J  undcr-  * stand the officers  here , are engaging as  many skilled   packers as  'possible,* but  such men  are  very'hard  to secure,    If  they are any count they are sure to have  good "job**,' which it would bo  difficult "lo  persuade   them to   leave   for   iv  South  African campaign."���IVew Orleans Times-  Democrat.           Shipbuilding in 1899.  On the Pacific coaifc only 114 vesseJLs of  20.S07 gross tons were built, compared  with 240 of 01,923 gross tons for the  previous year. The falliug off io construction on the Pacific coast, in spite of  the fact that the Alaskan trade next  year will bo very large, is duo partly to  the belief that American merchant vessels:) hitherto employed as transport's to  Manila will be released and enter the  counting trade in the spring.

The returns for the first six  months of the previous fiscal year.  None of the foregoing figures include mi-  rigged barges and canal boats. Including  these the total documented tonnage built  in the United States during the current  fiscal year bids fair to be somewhat over  300,000 gross tons.  Incredible of a Highlander.  The advocates of total abstinence have  an illustration favoring their point of  view in a story that comes from a yellow  tent in the Transvaal. It was a case  where the bullet had been driven right  through the lungs very low down, and it  puzzled the doctors. They failed to understand how the liver had been avoided.

JOHN HOUSTON.  THE   MAYORALTY   CONTEST.  To this Electors op Nelson :  In asking for your support for  the office of mayor at the coming  election, it is only fair that I should  state my views, briefly, on what are  considered public questions or  issues. No doubt, during the campaign you will have an opportunity to hear these questions and  issues discussed, for they are important to thepeople of this municipality.  1. The public utilities owned by  the city should be maintained at a  high state of efficiency, and the  revenue therefrom collected closely  and promptly. The rates should be  so adjusted that a fair profit over  and above fixed charges can be realized, for the city can no more sell  water and light at cost than can  the merchant the commodities in  which he deals.  2. Direct taxation can only be  kept low by-limiting the issue of  debentures. No debentures should  be issued except for the construction of revenue-producing public  works.  3. A beginning should be made  this year at making permanent  street improvements. The main  business streets should be macadamized arid the main residence streets  graded. Sidewalks should be laid  Avith some uniformity, and not according to the different ideas of different" officials.  4. The steamboat interests centered at Nelson are second only in  importance to the railway interests,  arid the city should provide modern  dock and warehouse facilities at  which this business can be handled.  The docks and .warehouses should be',  built on plans approved by practical  steamboat men, as the future  growth and prosperity of the city  depend, in a great measure, on the  cost of transhipment of merchandise.  5. lam opposed to saloon expansion. There are already a sufficient  number of places in Nelson at which  liquor eanbe obtained at retail, and  the number should not be increased  until the city lias a population. of  ten thousand.  0. Public gambling is looked upon  as an evil in civilized countries, aud  whilst gambling cannot bo prevented, there is no good reason why the  sound of gambling machinery should  equal that from the team traffic on  our main business thoroughfares,  7. None but general by laws should  be passed, and when passed they  should be enforced.  S. Corporations that have secured franchises from the city should  be made to live up to tho letter and  the spirit of their agreements ; but  in adjusting differences that may  arise there should not be any unnecessary friction.  9. The fire department should be  efficiently maintained. The best apparatus should be procured, and the  number of men in. the volunteer  brigade' kept at themaxinmin, for  without men, mere apparatus would -.  be useless in times of danger. ;  ,  - John Houston.   .  pKTllNE OF  ,   -,      Front Doors   .    -  Inside Doors  Screen Doors  Windows  Inside Finish  .., ���  local and coast,    '  Flooring - .  -   '        * local and coast. -  Newel Posts.

To the Citizens of Nelson:  In response to numerous requests  from business men, property owners  and ratepayers, I offer myself as a  candidate for Mayor of the City of  Nelson at tho approaching Municipal Elections.  Briefly stated, my platform is as  follows:  If elected it will be my earnest  endeavor to assist in more firmly  establishing Nelson as the wholesale  distributing centre of the Kootenay  country���the position for which she  has been so admirably designed by  nature.  In furtherance of this idea, I will  continue my consistent advocacy of  the construction of a wharf which  will meet present and future requirements of thewholesale and  other business interests.  I believe that the city has reached  that stage when permanent street  improvements have become an absolute necessity and that the cost  should be met, as far as feasible,  from current revenue and should the  citizens see fit to entrust me with  the office of mayor, it will be my  , aim to carry out a well-devised system of street improvements.  It will be my policy to oppose the  borrowing of money unless the same  be used forjthe increase or establishment of public Avorks producing a  revenue to the taxpayers.  I am opposed to any increase in  the salary of mayor, which would  necessarily involve a reduction in  salaries now paid an efficient staff  of officials, or an increased burden  to the taxpayers.  I am strongly in favor of maih-  tainihg the lire departinent in a  position of tlio rough^efficiency an'd  would'-advise the"adoption of modern equipments, including a fire-  alarm system aiid the purclfase of a  chemical engine^ which would effect  a reduction in all fire insurance.  It will be iny consistent policy to  safe guard the taxpayers against  any attempts on the part of corporate bodies, carrying on business in  Nelsoni to encroach iipon the rights  of the citizens.  In iny Opinion a sufficient amount  of money should be expended upon  the parks of the city so that they  will provide the citizens with recreation grounds and opportunities  for healthful enjoyment.  On all municipal works my policy  will be to employ bona fide residents  of Nelson and to maintain the public standard rate of wages.  1 believe that the public schools  in Nelson should be tinder the control of the ci ty, and that every effort  should be marie to establish a high  achool in our midst.  In concluding I wish to say that  in the event of my election I will  consider it my duty to share with  the council the responsibility of the  civic administration, believing, as I  do, that the assumption of entire  authority by one individual is subversive of all constitutional government, whether municipal or other-  ���uise.

The city's policy in regard to an appeal will l**e determined by  the opinion submitted by counsel, Mr.  Galliher. having already expressed his  conviction that an appeal would bo sustained.    At the city council this afternoon the  matter of taxing loan companies doing  business in the city will come up. AVhen  the council determined to impose this tax  the various companies were notified by  the city cleric, and seA'eral of them paid  up. Others asked time to communicate  with their respective head offices. Mr.  Strachan has now received letters from  two companies stating that they will not  submit to the tax without a legal fight.  These communications Avill be before the  council today, and the matter will thus  be brought up.
