 HO  V>  '1  1  A FATAL ACCIDENT IN NELSON  Travelling- on Aerial Tramway Unsafe.  A terrible fatality occurred yesterday  morning on the tramway connecting the  Silver Kins mine with the Hall Mines  smelter. A miner, whose name is said to  be Brenton, but whose identity Is not  officially established, was found in a  bucket stone dead and crushed in a horrible manner.  During the morning the tramway had  been used for carrying goods to the Silver  King, and everything ran smoothly until  about 11 o'clock, when the cable suddenly  stopped, and refused to move. An employee of the smelter was dispatched to follow up the lino  ami ascertain tiie the nature of  the trouble. He then proceeded along the  line examining the various stations without securing a clue until a point was  reached where the tramway crosses the  trail to the Athabasca mine. Here a  shocking sight met his view. A bucket  had become jammed, and the body of a  man could be seen in the receptacle,  -which hung some twelve feet from the  ground.  The smelter employee returned to the  office at top speed and notified  the manager of  his  discovery.    The intelligence  was immediately telephoned to the olliee  of   the   provincial   police.      Acting   inspector Kelly secured a  team and  drove  to  the smelter at  once.    Obtaining'the  assistance of several men,   he proceeded  to the sceue of the fatality, released the  corpse from  the  suspended  bucket, aud  returned to the city after examining the  neighborhood.   The  body was brought  to D. McArthur '��& Co.'s morgue, where it  now lies.    Dr. Arthur,  the  coroner, was  placed in possession of the facts, and concluded that tin inquest was unnecessary.  In looking over  the ground, inspector  Kelly  discovered   that  the  unfortunate  victim of  the  fatality  had boarded the  bucket   at   a    point    ninety    feet   below the spot where death.-overtook him.  The bucket was.moving up the mountain  which  leads   to  the  inference that  the  dead man was endeavoring to  reach the  Silver King, probably to apply for work,  or to resume work, if it turns out on further investigation that he is an employee  of the mine.    At the point where ho got  into the bucket the cable hangs  low, and  a convenient stump would enable an active  man,  as  was  demonstrated by  Mr.  Kelly,  to  swing-himbelf into  a bucket.  After climbing into the  bucket  the  victim had apparently sat down on  his roll  -���of   blankets.       Ninety   feet,   or   thereabout!-,' further   on   is  a  station  which  ���is 'also   low, "an   the   grade   is'   heavy.  At' this   point   the    bucket    seenis    to  have  ' swung     in     such      a      manner  that the occupant was caught and jammed  between the 32-iuob wheel over which the  cable runs and the side of   the bucket.  The body was firmly  pinned across the  chest, the bones being smashed in.     The  left leg was badly  broken  and  the. left  shoulder wis also fractured. '��� The  pics-  sure on the trunk was such as   to drive  the blood into the upper  portion  of the  body, and the face was black aud swollen  to twice its ordinary size.    The face was  excessively congested and beyond recognition.  The remains were those of a man five  feet, eleven inches in height and clean  shaven. lie wore a long brown overcoat,  black coat, dark trousers', overshoes,  black felt hat, a red sweater over a black  shirt and a white necktie. At  the morgue the .clothing was carefully searched, but failed to reveal any-  -thiug-which .would in tiny���way _help_to.  establish the identity of the victim,  The smelter, company have a regulation that the tramway must not be "used  to ride on,*but it is generally understood  that the men at the miiieandthe smelter  frequently ride in the buckets. Up to  the present time no accidents have over  occurred, and the practice wns not regarded as specially hawirdons.       ,    ,   .<  WEDNESDAY MORNING, J'ANUAUY 10,   1900.  PUBr-ISHBD AT NELSON, BRITISH COLUMBIA.  DAILY (BY MAIL) $5 A YEAR;  WEEKLY,   $?  a distinct stipulation that he was acting  unofficially. This attitude of the Transvaal government is believed to have been  based on a desire to force (.'treat Britain  into some recognition of the status  of the South African republics.  There is nothing in Macruni's report  which throws tho faintest light upon his  inexplicable action in leaving his post in  the middle of the war.  TO BE WON BYJOUL METHODS  Nice Scheme Hatched.  The Fletcher committee have hatched  some nice scheme to elect their -man  mayor of Nelson. Dead men are to be  voted ; non-residents are to be personated;  absentees are to be brought in from distant places. Every point known to the  practical politician is to be played. A  supreme effort is to be made to down  John Houston, for his defeat would mean  much to the men who are praying for the  defeat of the Semlin government, for the  defeat of that government means the repeal of the penalty clause of the eight-  hour law. Every elector ��� who believes  the business affairs of the City of Nelson  should be in the hands of men who are  true to the city should turn out on  Thursday next and show these unscrupulous schemers that the commercial centre  of Southeastern British Columbia can  neither be bribed nor bullied.  IMPROVEMENTS   CROW  APACE! AN EXPERT FRGM NEW ZEALAND  AROUND AMONG  THE  POLITICIANS.  AV, E. McCandlish: "Say, boys, let us  not vote for a man whose, nomination  was proposed by H. G. Neelands. Surely  there wereo enough electors to sign nomination papers without the mayor getting  a monopoly of tho honor."  George A. Hunter: "John Houston  needn't count on getting all the labor  vote. Many union men have called at  Mr. Fletcher's committee rooms and  pledged him their support" "yes," remarked-a bystander, "members of the,  mine owners' union, but not of any other  union."  Candidate Fletcher: "The Minor is doing me more harm than good."  The Miner: *'Candidate Fletcher is so  unpopular he cannot possibly be elected."  .1. J. Campbell: "J won't vote for any  candidate for alderman that is supporting John Houston1 for mayor."  Charles St. Barbe : "Me too."  IS   EASY  IN   LONDON  And Stocks are Firm on the Market,  - London, January 0,"���Theinarkets wore  firm today awaiting the settlement, although there is no apprehension over the  latter. It is thought that the open account will prove small and it is known  that the weak men in the last settlement  liave now been strengthened. Berlin  *was "inclined to nibble at specialties  other than New York. Paris bought  American shares aud Spanish fours.  Americans moved within the narrowest  limits, New Yovk being as unconcerned  in them as Paris. Union Pacific was  weak on the New York sales, which London regarded as au indication that there  would be a liquidation of the common  stock. Consuls were one to three lower  than the rate at the last settlement.  Money was abundant ut 2_ per cent. The  bank received ��77,000 in gold from Germany and bought ��'12,000 in German coin.  For the Indian currency account ��50,000  was withdrawn.  David Mark Carley: '* The only unclean  thing in this campaign is the Miner,"  Candidate Byers: "If 1 was only running for alderman in Kaslo 1 could be  elected hands down ; but here in NelsOu  no one knows me'except a few of the old-  timers like Jack Oates and Boh Lemon  and Jim Gilker and Frank Teetxcl and  Jakie Dover and The Tuim'Nii."  Candidate Irving: "Two hundred and  sixteen men have alieady promised to  vote for me, and alderman Beer says  there isn't an untruthful man or woman  hi the East ward."  _Candidate~Wil&ou~:"A nickname may-  defeat me.- Jf'it'does, I will petition the  legislature to change my Christian name  from "William John" to "Blake.''  In the Boundary Metropolis. ���  Grhionwood, January 1).���[Special to  the Tribune.]���Superintendent A. B. Patterson, of the Lemon mine in Camp Me-  Kinney, is in town arranging for the  freighting of the machinery plant now at  the railway depot. The plant consists of  a 00 horse power boiler, a 55 horse power  engine, a battery of five stamps and a  complete sawmill. The Lemon Gold  Mining Company of British Columbia,  with headquarters at Omaha, Nebraska,  own a group of five claims. The company  started development work in -^August,  1898.    The new plant will cost $15,000.  Charles Dixon, night clerk at the B. C.  hotel, died at 8 o'clock yesterday morning at the hotel. He came here early in  October from Trail, aud soon became very  popular at the hotel. He was a single  man, about 45 years of age.

In a recent issue of TilK Tuibunh appeared a letter signed by John W.  Maloney, in which a complaint was made  regarding the forwarding of mails to the  Boundary country from Nelson and the  transfer of registered mail from the  Boundary,. It can be. stated truthfully  that' registered letters from Boundary,  points to points in Kootenay are not sent  to Victoria, but are forwarded from Nelson, which is an exchange and distributing office.,,. The mails from Nelson for  Boundary arc, closed every ..morning at  7:30 o'clock.   -"'   ���--��� .'-.:..-'. ���'. '���  '��� .    .*���  '��� :".  Debate on Address. not Completed.  Victoria, January 9.���[Special to The  Tribune.]���This was a tame day in the  legislature. The address in reply to the  lieutenant governor's speech was moved  and seconded by Tisdall and Martin of  Kossland, and Turner followed in the  criticism expected of him as leader of the  opposition. This was perfunctory and  not marked by noteworthy features. He  moved in amendment to the address a  want-of confidence-motion on fho-liues of  the motion abandoned -yesterday. Turner having taken up the best part of .the  afternoon; the premier's answer was deferred until tomorrow.  .loo Martin gave notice today of the"  subjects of his first criticism of.his late,  colleagues. ' He calls for copies of requisitions for public works , made by members hrresponse to circulars sent out by  the deputy commissioner of public works?:  for tho correspondence respecting the  Columbia &_ Western bonus; for the date  of C 15. Sword's employment as private  secretary to the premier, and totals of  money paid him; for information respecting crown grants, if any, for British Columbia- Southern luilway hinds; and for  information as to why ,the Torrens land'  registration act of last session has not  been enforced.  Mr. Higgins gives indication of an attack on tho alien exclusion act, moving  for information with respect to its working.  ,   Boundary to Have Separate Kepresentation.  Grand Pokks, B. C, January 7.���Mayor Manly, while on a recent visit to tiie  coast cities, in company with Mr. Martin,  M.P.P., interviewed the cabinet officers  at Victoria and induced them to promise  their suppoit for a redistribution bill  cutting off this district from the Rossland  and making a separate electoral district  by itself. This is beneficial both to Boss-  land and the Boundary.  Grand Forks Mining Division Unchanged.  Git and Pores, January 7,-^[SpeeiaI to  the ' Ti'i:bnne].--Positive assurance has  been given the people of Grand Forks  that the present boundary lines will retain their location. When the. facts  were laid before'the officials the mistake  Avas quickly rectified,, and the boundary  ;lines will retiiin their original.position.  Appreciates Our Mineral Resources.  13. C.   Kingswell   is   registered  at  the  Hume.    He is  spending  a  few  days  in  Nolson on his way  through  the  mining  districts of British Columbia. Mr. Kings-  well hails from New Zealand, where  he  has had experience of gold mining for the  last ten years.    He was instructor of the  school of mines at Westport,  New  Zealand.    Mr. Kingswell's specialty is in the  reduction of gold eyes  by  the  cyanide  process.       He    owns    the    Cumberland  cyanide works at Reef ton, New Zealand,  Jw.hich   is  the  most  successful  plant  in  ���operation iu the country.-    He took over  :$'10,000 worth of gold out of the tailings  of the Cumberland in ten months, which  had been previously thrown away, having  been   pronounced   unworkable    by   the  Cassels company.    Mr. Kingswell intends  ito turn his attention to British Columbia,  In  which   he  thinks  opportunities  will  occur   for  the   successful   treatment  of  tailings and concentrates by his improved  cyanide   process.     Mr.  Kingswell  is  an  assayer by trade and does not belong to  the   yellow-legging   variety  of   expert.  Prom what he has already  seen  of this  country, and lie has been through several  of the camps, he considers this the most  remarkable aud richest mining  country  in - the   world.      There   is  nothing   in  Australia to beat it, as for New Zealand,  there are only four  big paying mines  in  New Zealand over thousands of miles of  territory,   whereas  here  there  are four  bigger mines than any of them, Avith the  exception of one, within a hundred acres  at Rossland.    "British Columbia," he concluded, "is a bigger mining country than  South  Africa.    Here you  have  all  the  precious metals, if not in conjunction, at  least in close proximity.     You have endless supplies of the fuel and ilux necessary  to treat them and you have not begun to  scratch the surface of the country.    You  need an outsider to come in and tell you  these ' things. > You  lose   sight  of them  yourselves." -'  NO MORE NEWS SINCE SUNDAY  Of the. Situation in Natal. *  London,   January 10.���4:30 a.m.-  The  war office lias not contributed, the least  particulars as to what is taking place in  Natal since Sunday. Neither has it  allowed the dispatches of correspondents  to go through, Consequently the facts  of the situation are replaced- by conjectures and-the impatience of the public  pours itself into a discussion of the Avar  and of what might have been clone or  ought to be done now.  - The Morning Post demands that the  forces afield, afloat and in preparation,  shall be increased by (5.1,000 men, To this  end, it urges that all the trained men the  country possesses and volunteers shall be  ca-licd out, asserting incidentally that, although the attitude of other powers is  correct in the diplomatic.sense of tiie  word, an invasion, if attempted, would  be suddeiiyarid that-now-H the���time to-  approhend contingencies.  The Daily News editorially defines the  public opinion of the continent as "in a  state which should be ignored." , It calls  for "greater vigilance than ever' on the  part of those responsible for~tho efficiency  of the navy," and urges cautious circumspection and businesslike diplomacy.'   '  The- Daily Mail, says* it understands  that the suppression of another general  commanding iu South Africa w*ill shortly  bo announced- This may have relation  to general Buller'.s hasty'summons from  Davenport. It is reported that he came  by special train to London yesterday and  held a long consultation with the headquarters staff. This seems toindicaiethat  his advice, which only recently was in  extreme disfavor, in about to be utilized.  The critics range up and down the entire  field of war transactions finding fault especially Avith the lack of transports for  the troops who are ready to depart, and  with the concealment of news, averring  that the censor in South Africa embraces  the mails, that the reports of correspondents aie being mutilated and entire letter,-, suppressed.  The News of Grand Forks.  Guano Pokks, January 0.��� Yesterday  application was made before judge Spinks  for the reinstatement of soiim 81 names  which were dropped from the voters'  li.it, including the name of Charles (.'innings, one of the candidates for mayor.  The case was called at 2:30 iu the parlors  of the Yale hotel. Judge Spinks decided  the case of, George Cumitigs adversely  and witheld the judgment on the rest till1  1.1 o'clock today. The name of Charles  Cumings and thirteen others were reinstated, but the judge refused to put the  balance of the..namcs on the ljst. , .  -"' While.on a';recent visit'- toi the*-Coast.'  cities 'mayor Manly was assured, by': the  people that his projected railroad from  the international boundary line at Cascade to the international boundary line  at Midway, with numerous branch lines  to the immediate camps would'receive no  opposition by the Coast people. This is  very gratifying to the Boundary country  in general.  QUIET 0N~THe1uCELA RIVER  The Times Roasts the Government.  London, January 10.���A dispatch to  the Daily Chronicle fi om Frere camp,  dated Sunday afternoon at 3 o'clock, says:  "There has been no bombardment of  Ladysmith, nor any shelling at Chieveley  by the British guns."  London, January 10.���The Times in an  editorial based upon Mr. Balfour's declarations yesterday, severely criticises the  government and says: "It is fortunate  for the government that when parliament meets it Avill only have to  face a weak opposition. If the  shortcomings now revealed had  been re\*ealed in a Avar with a first  class European power, the nation would  not have been consoled by statements  such as Mr. Balfour has been making. It  is neither becoming, nor prudent, after  what has happened for a minister to-declare as Mr. Balfour did, that he does not  feel that he need apologize on behalf of  the government. It would be better for  the country and for ministers themselves,  if the latter frankly owned that they  had made a mistake, pleaded extenuating  circumstances, and pledged themseh'cs to  a serious effort to reform all which has  proved wanting."  "Blake" is W. J. Wilson.  While the electors of the East Award  will ' have the privilege of marking a  cross opposite tho name of W. .1. Wilson  for alderman, feAV of them are aware  that W. J. Wilson and " Blake" Wilson  are different names for, the same man.  When.Mr. Wilson was a boy, back on a  farm iu a backwoods township in Ontario, he was given to discussing polities  rather than to hoeing potatoes or picking  stones, so his' folks nicknamed him  "Blake," after the then leader-of the  Liberal party, and the name has stuck to  him ever since. Now "that he lias decided  to enter political life in earnest he finds  tho only name that he is known by is not  the one that must appear on the ballot  paper.  i  Hibernians Who Will Not Contribute.  Sl'itlN'H-'lHLD, 'Missouri, January 0.���  The Springfield division of the Ancient  Order of Hibernians, which had been  solicited by the national president to  contribute to the fund for the relief of  the Boers, decided by an almost unanimous vote not to comply with the request.

How the Teamsters Are to bs Won.  One of the candidates for high office i.i  reported a- promi-ing the teamsters that  if th'-y will vote for him. he will use his  influence when elected to chance the li-  c'-n-e bylaw so as to require all owners,  of teams to take out licenses.. That promise is mere moon-bine. The Municipal  Clause.- Act cannot be changed by the city  council, and the -Municipal Clauses Act  stales that a license can only be collected  from teams that arc used for hire.  Changed Front.  When the tramw*ay company was obtaining its very favorable agreement, from  the city council, the promoters of the  company were loud in their denunciation  ofaldctman l*'lotcher; now the same men  aie Avorking night aud tiny to make alderman Fletcher mayor.

J low   many  of  the  promises  " that were made to .secure the election of  mayor   Neelands    and     his   aldermanic  , friends have been carried out?    X'ot one.  The  people of Nelson   were promised a  busine-s   administration  if   they  Avould  only turn the then mayor and aldermen  out of oflice.    The people have given the  Neelands crowd a full year  iu. which  to  make good these promises, and no  statement has 3*et been given as Lo   the financial condition of the city.     All tho cities  in British Columbia, except Nelson, have,  days   ago,   by   advertisement   in   their  iieAvspapers,-shown  the . financial  trail-,  eastions'��� for - the*.year 1800.' ; What;;iff;  mayor Neelands afraid of? Is it the size  of the deficit? Or is it the thousands of  dollais of unpaid accounts that are to be  met by the incoming council? Mayor  Neelands is it paid servant of the people  of Nolson. He is paid to be responsible  for the proper conduct of the business  ail airs of the city, and not to electioneer  fur candidate Fletcher. What the people of Nelson expect from their servants  is service for the Avhole people, and not  service for the faction Avhose representatives meet daily in the committee room  of one of the candidates for mayor. Mr.  Neelands, giA*e the people an account of  your stewardship. You have only one  more day*left in which to do it.  the last year of the Turner government  with that of the first year of the Semlin  government. It here adds to the revenue  of the former a sum of nearly $39,000, derived from a loan, iu order to bring out  an increase of only $53,000. That is to  say, for the revenue of the same year it  uses tAVo different sets of figures, which  is both dishonest and absurd.  The public accounts  for the  province  for the year ending June 30th, 1.SO0, have  been issued.    The net revenue of the province Avas $1,509,581.00, as against $1,420,-  299.97 for the previous year, an  increase  of  $89,291.03.    The  net  expenditure for  the   year   was   $2,150,-173.S6 as  against  $2,001,031.85 for the previous year, a difference of $155,442.01.    Thus the province  increased its expenditure  by  $155,442.01  while   it's   revenue    only   increased   by  $89,291.03.    This comparison  is  accentuated by the fact that during the previous  year $179,399.00  was  spent on the  neAV  parliament  buildings, while  during  the  year under review only $9,207.51  AA'as so  expended.    The great increase in  expenditure was under two heads, first, works  and buildings, which sprang from  $197,-  950.00 to $252,137.01, and  second,  roads,  streets, bridges and wharves,-which went  from   $348,517.39   to  $001,108.20.      This  enormous   expenditure,  AAiiich  makes  a  bad financial showing for the year, was  occasioned by the  reckless and  extravagant attempts made by the late, govern-  ment to retain  power.  "Before  they retired from office they emptied the  treasury,   content   to  leave their  successors  to   administer   the   affairs  of   the  province     as     best     they      could      with  the estimates exhausted.   All  the items  of .current expenditure show a considerable and salutary decrease except those  of  education,  administration of  justice  and asylums for  Hie  insane.    The total  amount   spent   on     public   works    was  $881,080.21. As this is supposed, in theory  at least, to be capital expenditure which  brings  in  interest in   the  shape  of increased revenue, British Columbia is in  the pleasant position of having Hvecl Avell  AVithin its income, theoretically.    Practically, of course, it has been doing nothing  of the kind.    The sooner it-conies down"  to a practical  basis  the , better.    Before  money is borrowed it  should'be  pretty  clearly understood where the revenue is  coming from that is to pay "ilftcresfc and  sinking fund on the money. ��� Hazy  talk  about*developing  resources  is  not very  ^convincing, nor dues it lead to a sound  financial policy. ' It is a  good  thing   for  the  province that  tho ^present government hah put a check on the senseless expenditure, which characterized thclast.    ,'  Tl no resolution passed by thecitizensand  Avorkingmen of Nanaimo with reference  to the conduct of the Hon. Joseph Martin  Avill be generally endorsed-by the work-  ingmen of the province. His conduct  has been dominated by the interests of  31 r. Joseph Martin more than by the interests of the province and of the work-  inginen he professed to champion. When  he used tho help of a man not conspicuously friendly to labor, to aim  a blow at a government conspicuously  friendly to labor, it was time  to show him he could not hope for  countenance from his late allies. There  is no particular tuipitudc iu making use  of extraordinary means of transportation  when necessary, and when these means  are provided without cost to the user so  much the better for him. But the incident, trifling as it was, shed a lurid  light upon the general methods and  character of the honorable gentleman.  Turc Victoria Colonist has a peculiar  and humorous way of dealing with statistics. Iu comparing the revenue of the  two last years-'of the Turner government  it sets the-.net revenue of the one .year  against that of. the other and,finds"an in-'  crease, of. $50,000, which- is correct It  then proceeds to:.conipare. the' revenue of  Tnio residents of the Hoover Addition  would like to know Avhere all the money  A\ras spent that is charged up to street  and sideAvalk expenditures. They claim  that but four blocks of 3-foot sideAvalk  have been laid in their part of the city  since Frank Fletcher has had charge of  the city's public works. They claim that  there have not been any street improvements made, and some of the streets and  sidewalks have been made useless or dangerous by the tramway company. If  these statements are based on facts, the  Hoover addition people were either well  eared for during John Houston's terms of  office or badly neglected during Frank  Fletcher's term in office as boss of the  public works committee.  Are Two Grindstones.  The Transvaal war, remarks the St.  Paul Pioneer Press, is as the grinding of  a small, thin and very hard grindstone  against one not so hard on the surface,  perhaps, but vastly larger and thicker,  and growing harder as it whirls. Each  stone grinds the other away, the big  stone losing the most in the process. But  the smaller one may be completely worn  out without especially impairing the  grinding power of the larger. That the  smaller stone may be for a time on top  Avill not mend its future. Boer grit  might win against British grit, bulk for  bulk. But, unfortunately for the Boer  cause, the comparison here made illustrates the exact situation presented-by  the war.  HUDSON'S BAY  COMPANY.  INCORPORATED 1670.  CARLOAD OF CHOICE  VEGETABLES.

The case of Esterbrooks vs. (iodsol  was concluded yesterday, judge Koi-in  giving judgment in favor of plaintiff.  The judgment includes the other actions  brought by ex-employees of the Little  Phil mine whose suits were consolidated  with Esterbrooks'. When court opened  at 10:30 a.m. defendant's solicitor asked  that the costs of the adjournment on the  previous afternoon should be secured to  his client, to which his honor acceded.  W. A. Macdonald explained his tardiness  ���which led to the adjournment in question,  stating that he would personally bear, the  costs.  An unlooked-for incident arose during  the morning session. F. W. Coleman, who  was operating the property, had issued  ������- checks for the September payroll, the  checks being payable at the Bank of  British North America in Trail. None of  the miners had cashed-'their checks and  Mr. Macdonald drew the inference that  no funds had been provided to meet them.  Mr. Coleman asserted that the cash was  in the bank, and that, in addition, he had  the funds on his person to meet the  September roll, and -was prepared to do  so. The plaintiffs were evidently unprepared for this, but promptly accepted  the offer, and at noon Mr. Coleman handed  over some $343 and took back the unused  cheeks. In the course of his evidence he  stated that had the men resumed work  another month the mine would have discharged all liabilities in full.  Meeting of the Police Commissioners.  Thu.police commissioners met yesterday morning to dispatch current business, mayor' Neelands, chairman, magistrate Crease and alderman Jlillyer being  in attendance. After Die minutes of tho  previous meeting had boon confirmed, it  was resolved on motion of Messr-". ilillyer  and Crease to purchase for the patrol 1 men  two electric Hash lights and two new  batons. Tho Hash light for police use is  a* now and novel adoption of electric  lighting. The outfit consists of a neat,  leather-bound cylinder eight inches in  length and two inches in diameter. A  small battery is contained in the cylinder and a small incandescent lamp is attached thereto. A bull'.* eye lens nt one  end concentrates the rays of the lamp,  ond the apparatus is quite effective as an  ordinary police lantern,'besides having  the advantage of being clean, easily carried, adjusted in a second and economical.

On motion of Messrs Ilillyer  and  Crease  it was resolved to raise patrolman Hardy  from tho probationary class to  the rank  of   full   constable.     A   recommendation  was drafted to be forwarded to  the  city  council  urging  the  aldermen to supply  the constables with a regulation^uniform.  It was sttited that  in  Revelstoke, Rossland, Greenwood and Grand  Forks  this  was done, and tho commissioners thought  it desirable that a similar  policy should  be applied  iu  Nelson.     The  suggestion  was "made  that the1 English  helmet of  dark material, such as is used in Toronto  and elsewhere, be adopted for headgear.  The annual  report  of chief Jarvis was  read and adopted.    Messrs.  Ilillyer and  Crease moved  that  the   thanks  of the  board be tendered to the members of the  force   for   the   faithful   and  intelligent  manner in which their duties had been  performed during  the  year.    Alderman  Ilillyer made special  reference to  chief  Jarvis, complimenting that official on the  good service lie  had  rendered  since  his  appointment, and remarking that he had  not only given  satisfaction  to  the commissioners but to the citizens in general.  Mayor jtfeelands  and  magistrate  Crease  endorsed these sentiments and  his  worship conveyed the board's thanks to chief  Jarvis, who responded modestly.  The Horned Beast.  Vancouver Province.  Joseph Martin must go down to history  as the horned beast of Canadian polities.  He has gored every friend almost that he  ever had and every cause almost that he  ever espoused. When, as a result of his  defeat at the polls in Winnipeg, he passed out of public life for the time being,  the Cauadian Pacific railway, of which he  had always pOsed as a bitter opponent,  offered him a solicitorship in British Columbia at a substantial salary. Mr. Martin accepted this-office and. while he retained it discharged its duties, it is to be  presumed, in a satisfactory manner.  Yet the moment he ceased his connection  with the railroad, he began to gore it.  He gored the friends who brought him  out of a humble and obscure "position >in  Vancouver and placed him in the front1  rank of the public men of British Columbia. He gored the Liberal party, whose  principles! he professedly espoused for the  best part of his lifetime, aud now he has  gored the people of Vancouver by throwing in his lot with the Duusmuir interests  and influence, which interests and influence ho was specially elected by the  people of Voueouver to oppose. Jlis  whole record is that of a destroyer and  wrecker, and the sad fact is that with all  his brilliant ability he is an impossibility  as a public man. The happenings in  British Columbia have abundantly demonstrated sir Wilfrid Laurier's wisdom  in declining to take Mr. Martiu into the  federal cabinet. He would have gored  the cabinet as lie has gored everything  else he has ever had anything to do with  and it is only a question of how [long it  will be before he gores Mr. Punsmuir and  the interests with which he has thrown  iu his lot.

THE   MAYORALTY   CONTEST.  TO THE  El.KCTORS  OF  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 ad justed-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 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 interests,  aud 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 morchan- ���  dise.  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 the city has a population of  ten thousand,  0. Public gambling is looked upon'  as an evil in civilized countries, and  whilst gambling cannot be 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 byJawsshould  be passed, and when passed they  should be enforced.  8. Corporations that have secured franchises from the city 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. The fire department should be  efficiently maintained. The best apparatus should he procured, aud the  number of ��� men in the volunteer  brigade kept at themaximum, for  ' without men, mere apparatus would  .be useless in times of danger,  John Houston.

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 stilted, 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 works producing a  revenue to the taxpayers.  I am opposed to any increase iu  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 main?  taining the lire department iu a  position of thorough efficiency and  would advise the adoption of modern. , equipments, including a fire  alarm system aud the purchase of a  chemical engine, which Avould effect  a reduction iu 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 in  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 recreation grounds and opportunities -  for healthful enjoyment.  On all municipal works my policy  will be to employ bona fide'residents  of Nelsoti 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 1 will  consider it my duty to hhare with  the council the responsibility of the  civic administration, believing, as T  do, that the assumption of entire  authority by one individual i.s subversive of all constitutional govern-  -ment, whether municipal or otherwise..

Youra,.\;;:i/;;:.i^^  LOCAL NEWS IN BRIEF.  Born in Nelson on December 20th, 1899,  to the wife of Andrew Lindblad a  daughter.  The cabin at the Little Phil mine near  Ainsworth was recently forced open by  thieves, and tools to the value of $150  stolen, and every movable article which  was unmarked was carried off. The  matter will be placed in the hands of the  police.   T. W. Coleman, of Trail, who is working the Little Phil property, states that  work will be recommenced on the property next week.  A gang of workmen is engaged in laying a three-throw switch or cut-oil' on  the C. P. R. transfer dock. When completed the cut-off will materially expedite the loading and unloading of barges.  Captain Troup, superintendent of the  C. P. 11. transportation service, is at Vancouver on business in connection with  his department.  The board of works meets today at 11  a. m. to prepare the final report of their  department for the council. At 3 p. m.  the aldermen of '99 will convene for the  last time.    Citizens on the voters'list in the East  ward will cast their ballots at the unoccupied store in the Scroggs block on  Josephine street opposite the Clarke hotel, where city clerk Strachan will preside.

The polls open at 8.10 o'clock  a.m. and close at 4 p. m.  Archie Macdonald, jr., of Qu'Appelle,  was in the city yesterday en route home  from the coast, whither he went in charge  of a herd of moose which Avere gathered  by his father, A. Macdonald, factor at  Qu'Appelle, for shipment to New Zealand.  The government of Xew Zealand is making an effort to propagate the moose in  that colony.  O _-���-���______-  Dr. Stoddart has leased the front portion of the second story in the new Madden block, and will move his dental office to the new quarters shortly.  The effort to raise the barge sunk near  the C. P. R. dock was continued yesterday afternoon with indifferent success.  Locomotive No. SS was coupled to the  two and one-half inch tackle attached to  the giant grapnel, and at a signal the  engineer in charge opened the throttle.  A stout tug-of-war ensued for a moment  until the ropes parted without achieving  the desired result. Tackle and grappling  irons went to the bottom and the balance of the afternoon was spent endeavoring to secure the lost outfit with small  grapnels. Both of the (500-pound irons  are now lying on the bed of the lake,  wliich is 50 feet deep at this point. Another attempt will be made to raise the  craft with more powerful tackle. Captain Campbell is directing the operations.  B. S. Jenkins, superintendent of C. P. R.  telegraph lines west of Winnipeg, is at  the Phair. Mr. Jenkins was recently appointed to the charge of the system in  British Columbia, and is making his first  tour of inspection.  J.
