 \  did not exceed $25; and that the council  be authorized to draft revisions to the  bylaws. All three recommendations were  adopted.  A resolution drafted by the Toronto  Board of Trade recommending the adoption of a commercial policy based upon  the principle of mutual benefit between  the mother country and the colonies, and  the appointment of a representative  English and colonial committee to devise  a scheme of this nature, was submitted  to the meeting and unanimously endorsed.  Messrs. J. Crofts, AV. P. Tierney and  P. Griddle were elected members of the  board by acclimation.  THE BOARD OF TRADE MEETS  Officers For the New Year Chosen.  The annual meeting of tho South Kootenay   Board   of   Trade  took  place  last  night.    The proceedings were  of  an interesting nature, the  election  of officers  for the ensuing  year  attracting  a large  attendance of members.    Those present  were F. Fletcher, chairman; F. W. Swan-  nell,   secretary;    J.  Ranncrman,   A.   G.  Gamble, J. J. Campbell, J, M. Lay, G. V.  Holt, .'I. Dover, F. Irvine, G. C. Tunstall,  G. Kydd,.). Chapman, P. Lamont,  A. II.  Kelly, T. .1. Sims, J. A. Kirkpatrick, J. R.  Rawley,  T.  Morley,  O.   Newling,  W. A.  Macdonald. II. Bycrs, II. E. Croasdaile, P.  .7. Russell, J. F. Weir, A. II. Bellamy, II.  G. Neelands, II.'J. Evans, S. S. Fowler, A.  H. Dowsing, G. E. C. Martin, T. G. Procter,  F.   W. Peters, G.  L. Buchanan,.aud  R..  Robertson.  The   president's   annual   address   was  read by secretary Swannell in the absence  of J. R. Robertson.    The  report  opened  by remarking that the advisability  of  holding monthly meetings had been vindicated by the excellent results attained,  and   touched   on   the  resolutions,   committees  and   conferences  in  which  the  board had participated during the year.  The completion of the Crow's  Nest Pass  railroad,   new   steamship  facilities,  the  proposed extension to  the  local  freight  and passenger facilities were referred to.  Other railroad enterprises were described  as materially benefitting the city.     The  president continued  that  the  year had  witnessed an extraordinary development  in the. way of construction of new business blocks,    stores  and  private  dwellings,    which    had    given    employment  to a number of  men  and  done much to  beautify and strengthen the credit of the  city in the eyes of investors.    The construction of the tramway and  gas plant  were quoted as evidences of the progress,  and the fact commented upon  that  the  board had 'brought'its influence  to  bear  on  the  city council  to  bring about improvements in the  city  wharf facilities.  -Mr." Robertson    referred   to   the   steps  which the board had  taken to  have the  Nelson district represented at  the  Paris  exposition and the fruit fair at Spokane.  The  splendid  exhibit  of mineral  specimens shown in Spokane had been brought  back to the city and had  been  placed in  the board rooms, but this could hardly be  described as an advantageous repository  for them.    This  led  to  the  hope on his  part  that  the  incoming  council   would  consider  the   question  of erecting  new  city buildings 'adequate  to  the  importance of the  city, and which would  contain quarters Cor the boaid of  trade and  its  museum  of mineral.-;  as' well as the  public library.    lie  also hoped'that tho  auomaly existing  in regard to "holiday  ' rates to eastern points over the railroads  would be removed before, the  conclusion  of t.W  iipw. year,._After  recommending  that  the now  council of  the board be  authorized  to   devise  changes  and   improvements to tho board, Mr.   Robertson  devoted a paragraph  to  the  labor troubles iu the mines.    He struck  a  popular  chord by remarking that universal regret  was felt by the board in  the  temporary  loss  of  captain  Hodgins, who  had gallantly  volunteered  to serve queen and  country in South Africa.    The  board, he  felt   assured,  would   join  with  him   in  wishing captaiu Hodgins Godspeed and a  safe return.  The report was received with warm  applause, aud on motion of Messrs. Holt  and Buchanan, it was resolved to print  the document in pamphlet form.  Secretary Swannell presented the annual report of the board's finances, A  small- cash balance   was shown, a fact  whicli elicitedapplause; 1 -  The election of officers was proceeded  with and resulted as follows: President,  G. V. Hole; vice-president,- IL J. Evans;  secretary-treasurer, F. ��� AV. > Swannell ;  council, J. R. Robertson, T. Gv Procter, P.  ~ Lamont, P. Chapmau, P. Russell,' II.  Byers, F. Fletcher, J. M.

Twenty-  seven candidates were nominated for the  council aud the result of the balloting  aroused great interest,  President-elect Holt took the chair and,  after returning thanks to the gentlemen  present, expressed the hope that during  the ensuing year local merchants would  take more interest in the board than had  been the case up to the present, , Messrs.  Macdonald and Tunstall moved a vote of  thanks to ex-president'Robertson, which  was carried unanimously.  The secretary submitted the report of  the council, which recommended that the  invitation to send a delegate to the session of the London chamber of commerce  be accepted; that tho board be hereafter  known as the Nelson board of trade, provided the expense of' making the change  TUESDAY MORNING, JANUARY 9,  1900.

S  Keep the Dutch Clear of Belmont.  London. January 9.���The Times publisher the following, dated January Oth,  from Modder River : "News from Belmont shows that the Queensland and  Canadian volunteers have been so energetic in that neighborhood that -a large  belt of the Free State, across the border  has been deserted by the Boers."  London, January 9.���The Boer agents,  aceot'diug to the Cairo correspondent of  tho Daily Mail, are evading British vigilance respecting the importation of  ammunition. The report says: "A large  quantity of quick-firing ammunition goes  to Ras Jibeuul, from which point it is  conveyed by dhows along the coast, or  transported to vessels bound for Portuguese ports in east Africa. French  steamers touching at Ras Jibeutil before  reaching Aden contrive to evade search  by transhipping at Madagascar to steamers apparently not connected with  European lines. In this way they escape  suspicion."

Turner refused to proceed with it for the stated  reason that he desired to.secure certain information before proceeding with  the debate. His critics intimate thatr the unexpected presence of Prentice  on the government side, and the ���absence of Joseph Martin, who did not  return from Vancouver until this evening, were important factors in . influencing the leader of the opposition. Anyhow, the government squarely met  his challenge, offering hinv precedence oyer all other business,, and had the  satisfaction of finding him unwilling to engage in the test of strength.  Speaker Forster made a break at> tiie outset with the intimation that  "according to custom" the house [would present the want of confidence  resolution, to take precedence over all other business, and Semlin and Cotton  followed on the same lines. If such a custom were permitted the house  would be at the mercy of the opposition, who could delay any business they  wished to block by putting a want of confidence motion on the order paper,  and it was not surprising, therefore, that after D; W. Higgins had challenged  the speaker to find anything in the rules or records implying- such custom,  Forster withdrew his statement, and it was decided that Turner should be  called upon only Avhen his motion was: reached in its regular order. When  this occurred it was dropped without further remark, and must again be  given notice of before it can come up. , The house sat less than two hours,  adjourning about 4 o'clock. The debate on the address commences  tomorrow. " '.''���;���  Joseph. Martin appears to have lost caste as a champion of labor, for on  the top of Macpherson's repudiation of him to the Vancouver Deadman's  Island committee, comes the following resolution adopted at a crowded  meeting at Nanaimo on Saturday evening : "Resolved that we, the members  of labor organizations and other citizens ;of the city of Nanaimo, desire to  express our emphatic condemnation of Joseph Martin in his frantic efforts  to wreck the present government, and also his pitiable political hypocrisy  in allyiug himself with those whose constant endeavor is to crush the cause  of labor."  This resolution from the home of Ralph Smith must dispose of any  lingering hope held by Martin of posing as the workingmen's friend. He  could not induce Ralph Smith to back him.

A most promising strike has just been  made on the Hartney group on Silver  mountain, It occurred in tho lower  drift, and shows eight inches of ore, four  inches of which is solid steel galena.  This tunnel overreached the ledge, and a  new start was made, which has since  developed a fine chute. The company  working the property is from Rochester,  New York, and is a strong and energetic  organization, and will greatly help the  town. Ore now shows in the two main  drifts, so the Hartney will be a shipper  this winter.' The next payment on the  bond is due on February 1st.  ��� Another carload of ore is to be shipped  from the Mollie Hughes, consisting of  high grade mineral.

England  has talcen heart. The situation/however,  is still causing much anxiety. The be-  leagured force have expended a large  amount of ammunition ,which cannot be  replenished, and must have lost a number of officers and men, which is counterbalanced, so far as the garrison is concerned, by the greater  loss of the Boers.  The entrenchments at Ladysmith, as  described in a message that left a day or  two before the fight and has just come  through, are fortified hills well covered  with rifle pits and trenches, down which  the infantry move iu single fiie^to the  various posts in absoluto safety. Full rations are still served, but no whiskey or  tobacco.    . Mr. Spence AVilson in the Morning Post  points out that there is one division only  at Chieveley, another at Frere and a third  at Estcourt As Chieveley is 77 miles  at Colenso, the second division would  have had to march twelve miles to get  into action and the third division 22  miles. General Buller's 30,000 men and  seventy guns were, therefore, almost inactive on Saturday aud, when general  AVhite heliographed, general Buller could  really make no move but an ineffective  demonstration.'  England is preparing fresh armaments  and 22 transports will be on the -way to  South Africa during the present month.  According to the programme 25,000 additional troops and 22 guns' will soon be  "afloat. Tho government has ordered the  Maxims to manufacture as many 4.7 inch  and six inch quick firers as can be turned  out until otherwise notified.  Got the Eats' Supper by Mistake.  Brantfokd, Ontario, January 8.���  James C. Boughner, foreman at the  AVaterous Engine AVorks, narrowly escaped death from stvychniue poisoning  on Saturday night. Keeling hungry  upon arriving at his home, Boughner  went to the pantry, where lie made a  hearty meal of some bread and butter  which was, it appears, covered with  strychnine with a view to poison rats.  Prompt medical attendance saved his  life.   Germany's Attitude to Britain.  Berlin, January 8.���The foreign office  this evening authorized the following  statement: '-Germany recognizes the  right of search within certain specific  limits. Among the points enumerated in  the protest filed in London is one contending that England has exceeded these  limits.  NEGOTIATIONS^ THE SLOCAN  f    T Broke Down at the Last Moment/  Nkw DJ3NVRR, January 8.���[Special to  ^emunatum^  effect a compromise in tho labor troubles  in tliis camp came as a great and painful  surprise to-all, more particularly to the  men themselves. To account for it many  are at a loss, while ��� not a few look away  to Victoria aud profess to see in the  presence there of a "strong lobby of Association members the cause and reason for  the sudden change of front. It was the  belief of the camp at large that a permanent settlement was on tho eve of actual  fulfillment, and some business men assert  this would have been accomplished had  the men accepted the mine owners' compromise offer when made, instead of procrastinating. However that may be, it  must be-taken- into-consideration-that-  the union had to act with care aud discretion, because there are nome 7,00 mom  at present working in the camp and  drawing the $3.50 rate; therefore the  general feeling of the members had to be  ascertained on the'.subject. The insinuation that the, AVestern Federation of.  Miners was pulling the wires and directing affairs i'a as untrue' as it is ridiculous  and uncalled for. -When- obtained, the  feeling of the L'nion members Avas found  to be in favor of the compromise, a scale  of wages befitting which being nuide out  and sent to the Association in reply. This  scale has appeared in Tin* Tuim.VK, aud  it will be seen 'that it coincided practically .with the mine owners' offer; and  it will bo noted that this scale is not objected to by the ^Association committee  in their final reply, which wiii also published. They base their main and only  objection on the condition attached to  the wage scale that the latter should not  be abrogated without thirty days' notice  being given by either side. This the Association alleges and distorts into tiie assertion that the men would not sign tiie  scale for. more than thirty days at a time.  On the ".very face of it, the contention is  weak and unproven. As a matter of fact,  taking the word of one of the leading  unionists at Sandon as an authority, the  men were and are willing to sign the  compromise scale advanced by them, and  were prepared to have commenced work  at once. Of course the owners arc accused of leading the men on and then  throwing them over for political effect  at A-K-toria, but it is the firm belief that  both sides were sincere- in their advances  up to the last moment when the negotiations were broken off. This, though,  can be asserted, that it is* not the fault  of the men the compromise has not been  effected and  the  trouble ended.    As the  itig the property.  A license has been issued to the new  Bosun company, and they have everything now iu fine shape for immediate  and extensive operations.  Mining recorder Mclnnes went to Sandon Saturday to look over the ground  ���for the new Sovereign tramway, right of  way being desired over adjoining territory.  On the Kaslo & Slocan ore shipments  are averaging a carload per day, with  signs of an increase.  Friday the Payne had three carloads  of ore standing on the siding awaiting  shipment over the Kaslo & Slocan. The  delay in shipping was caused by the lack  of special ore rates, which terminated on  December 31st.  A carload of ore was shipped out by  the Surprise on Thursday. '  ���;. The big raise has been finished on the  IRambler-Cariboo and the force increased  to 3'1-men. More meii are to be added.  In December the company shipped 14(5  tons of ore, following it up by another  carload on Saturday.  Last week the Queeu Bess exported 90  tons of ore, and still has about 500 tons  to come down the hill. Thirty men are  employed iu the mine, three shifts working the Burleigh in the long tunnel.

When court opened clerk Simpkins  read certificates of naturalization bearing the names of John Edmonds, Louis  Hartwig, Achille Joseph Rainville and  Angelo Perri.  John  B. Hitchcock, the Rossland: forger, occupied the prisoner's pen under  the eye of acting inspeotor of provincial  police Kelly.    Hitchcock was ordered to  stand up while the charges against him  of uttering two forged  cheques  on the  Merchants Bank of Halifax at Rossland  were read.    The prisoner pleaded  guilty  to both, charges.     His   honor asked if  Hitchcock had anything to say before  sentence was passed, to which the prisoner replied:   "I did not know what I  Avas doing.   A man gave me the checks  at the desk in the postoffice and said they  belonged to an engineer who4worked at a  mining  mill."      Judge  Forin{ remarked  that  it was  just  as bad- to  utter  the  forged, checks-under these circumstances,  and con tinned :    "I will sentence you on  the first charge to six months'  imprisonment at hard labor, aud to six months at *-  hard  labor on  the   other   charge also.  The second - sentence will commence on  the expiration of the first six months,  making one year in all."  Hitchcock was then escorted over the  bridge. He was not disconcerted and  was probably satisfied with the lightness  of the sentence.  The only case on the docket which was  proceeded with was that of Esterbrook  vs. Gadsple, with which Was consolidated  a number of actions - arising out of  mechanics'liens filed against the Little  Phil mining claim ; at Ainsworth.  The case has created considerable interest  in the district. Macdonald & Johnson  appeared for the plaintiffs,; Esterbrook9,  Anderson, Stewart, Church, Switzer,  Ungac, Pitchford, McBride, - Carew,  Sheehey stud Ewart, while A. Wheeler of .  Kaslo appeared for the defence. In opening Mr. Wheeler admitted that the defendant, Gadsole, was the owner prior to  any work being done by any of the  plaintiffs of lot 477, group 1, Kootenay,  known as the Little Phil mine and still is  such registered owner. A letter from  Langley^-c Martin, solicitors of Victoria,  stating that theJ property is unencumbered, was allowed to go in as an exhibit  subject to defendant's solicitor preserving----  righfc to inquire into the statement. The  time checks of the men were -filed. Objection w*as taken to the lien filed by  plaintiff Sheehey oh the ground that  being a cook and not. a workman' under  the Act he was not entitled to a mechan-  one month, in view of which his riglit to  issue a'mechanics'lien for the'first two  months was denied.  Defendant's solicitor -asked that the  plaintiff's, with the exception of the one  in the witness box, be. excluded from the  court room, and argument was heard on  this point after which his honor instructed the men to leave the room until  they were called.*-  The defence set up was that T. AV.  Coleman of Trail was in charge of the  mine as holder of a bond on the property  aud that the miners should look to him  for their-wages and not to Gadsole who  was the owner of the property.  Robert E. Esterbrook was placed on  the stand and swore that he worked  from August 3rd, 1899, to November 15th  ���of- the-same-year, and _the_amouut_ of_  wages due him was $150.75. AVituess  saw Gadsole'at the mine and within a day  or so the mine shut down by an order  from the foreman. Several other workmen were sworn and testified briefly, the  plaintiff's counsel placing stress on the  point that the miners only regarded Mr.  Coleman as the manager of the property.  At I o'clock court adjourned for an  hour. Promptly at 2 o'clock judge Forin  tiscended the bench, but AV. A. Macdonald, plaintiff's holicitor, waa not present,  and after waiting .until the courtroom  clock indicated 20 minutes past 2, his  lionor.adjourned the sitting until 10 a,m.  today.  Tiie remainder of the coses on the list  were disposed of as follows:  Manly vs. Addington, settled:  Webster vs. Vinir Mines, Elliot & Lennie for defendants.

Even war has itn humorous- side.   The  South African war i�� a very .serious business; but with   its rumors  ol'   Kuropean  complications anil threatenings of crisis,  it has brought 'into  greater rdiel'  than  ever the privato or pocket diplomatist of  the American press correspondent.   They  all "have them.    A  press correspondent  could no more get along without one than  he could without paper and  pens.    No  sooner has a  correspondent,  for  lack of  news, threshed out of his own brain &onic  ingenious   reflections  on  foreign  affairs  .than he places  them  in  the mouth of a  "distinguished member of the diplomatic  corps" or "a, gentleman deep in the confidence of the Czar," and so forth, " whose  name for obvious  reasons may not be  -mentioned."    Themost obvious reason to  the intelligent reader is that he  has no  name.    lie is as inuc-h a  journalistic convention as the editorial "we," and about  as threadbare.   Things are rapidly coming to a crisis  in South Africa. If the recent slight  British successes are followed up by a few  decisive victories the beginning of the  end will bo in sight. If on the other  hand Ladysmith falls, and Buller fails to  make any impression upon the stone wall  must face a long and fiercely contested  struggle for supremacy in South Africa.  Annies may then have to sit down before  trenches for months at a stretch waiting  until the frontier defences of the Dutch  have been pierced at some other point,  and the Boers forced to shift their ground  in the defence of other portions of their  territory.   o  There does not seem to be any immediate danger of the Semlin-Cotton government being thrown out of power. So  long as the nineteen members of the  house who support it remain solid, it can  afford to smile over attempts to dislodge  it. The two members making themselves  most active in opposing the government,  Martin aud Higgins, are so obviously  actuated by motives personal to themselves, and to themselves alone, that they  can find no one to follow them. Sensible  men do not as a rule throw over principle  and party to gratify other men's ambition and revenge.  Meeting of the Ladies' Aid Society.  The annual meeting of the Ladies' Hospital Aid took place yesterday afternoon  at St, Paul's church, the members of the  society being present in strong force.  Mrs. C. E. Miller presided.

It was intended  that the marriage should have taken  place at the bride's home, but, owing to  the call for a second contingent, captain  Turner put personal matters aside for  the time being, but Miss Goodday consented to come to Quebec, where the marriage was performed as stilted.

To the Electors of Nelson :   ��� ���  I will be a candidate for the office of mayor  at the election to be held on Thursday, January  lltli next.  December 20th, lSilil. JOHN* HOUSTON.  THE   MAYORALTY   CONTEST.  To the Electors op Nelson :  In asking for 3rour support for  the oflice of mayor at the coining  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 muuici-  . pality.  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 proiit 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" and the main residence streets  graded. Sidewalks should be laid  with 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 iuterests,  and 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. I am opposed to saloon expansion. There are already a sufficient  number of places in Nelson at which  liquor can be obtained at retail, and  the number should not be increased  until tiie city has a population of  ten thousand.  tt. Public gambling is looked,upon  as an evil iu civilized countries, aud  whilst gambling cannot be prevented, there is no good reason why the  sound of gambling machinery should  equal that from the team traffic on r  our main business thoroughfares.  7. None but general bylaws-should  be passed, and when parsed they  should be enforced.  8. Corporations that have secured franchises from the ciby should  be made to live up to the letter and  the spirit of their agreements; but  in adjusting differences that may  arise there should not be any unnecessary friction.  9.

To the Citizens op 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 the 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 Avill be my  aim to carry out a well-devised system of street improvements.  It will bemjr policy to oppose the  borrowing of money unless the same  be used forjthe increase or establishment of public works producing a  revenue to the taxpayers.  I am opposed to any iucreasein  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 maintaining the fire department in a  position of thorough efficiency and  would advise the adoption of modern equipments, including a fire  alarm system and the purchase of a  chemical engine, which would effect  a reduction in all fire insurance.  It will be my consistent policy to  safe guard the taxpayers against  any attempts on the part of corporate bodies, carrying on business iu  Nelson, to encroach upon the rights  of the citizens.  In my opinion a sufficient amount  of money should be expended upon  the parks  of the city so that they  will piovide  the citizens with ic-   ���  creation .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 pub- >  lie standard rate of wages.  1 believe that the public schools  in Nelson should be under the control of the city, and that every effort  should be made to establish a high  school in our midst.  In concluding 1 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 i-i subversive of all constitutional government, whether municipal or otherwise.
