 r  >  if  NUMEROUSIMPORTANTMATTERS  Disposed of by the City Council.  The city council met yesterday, mayor  Neelands,    aldermen     Mclvillop,     Kirk-  patrick,    Beer   and   Fletcher  being    in  attendance.  The negotiations between the city and  the C. P. 11. occupied considerable time,  A. G. Boasley, district superintendent,  and W.A. Macdonald, local solicitorfor the  C. 1*. It., being in attendance to represent  the railroad's interests.  A notice was received from the lands  and works department to the effect that  a grant of the lots in blocks SS and S!)  had been mndo to the C. P. R. This was  necessary to complete the agreement between the city and the company.  Macdonald <-*>*; Johnson forwarded two  copies of the agreement between the  Canadian Pacific Railway Company and  the city, duly executed on tho company's  part and bearing the signature and seal  of tho company. The communication  stated that the agreement approved by  the city solicitor only provided for a  lease of the lots in blocks (iO and OS for  live years, which was not in accordance  with the understanding at the time the  company approached the council with  respect to the matter, and on behalf of  the company the legal firm undertook  that the agreement should contain a provision for seven years instead of live.  They also asked that the city iix a time  within which to make the selection of the  blocks of the Columbia <fc Kootenay reserve. A resolution to cover this point  was suggested.  The agreement in duplicate as prepared  by Macdonald ��fc Johnson was submitted.  This document did not exclude several  lots in tho two blocks which had been  sold by the government prior to the  application by the city, which fact caused  a hitch. Mr. Macdonald suggested that  the council urge the government to transfer the said lots to the city subject to the  rights of the purchasers, and this was  agreed upon. A telegram was dispatched  to the department regarding the matter.  Macdonald tc Johnson applied on behalf of the Nelson Tramway Company  for the 5p200 deposited by the company as  a guarantee of good faith when the tramway was projected. They also applied  for the return of the $2000 check and interest in accordance with the tramway  bylaw, tho company having completed  over two miles of railway, thereby .entitling them to. the, return of the $2000  deposited with interest at 5 per cent.  Alderman Beer remarked that the $200  had been regarded as a deposit to cover  the expense of submitting- the tramway  bylaw which had exceeded this amount,  lie was surprised that the company had  applied for the refund.  Mr. Macdonald denied that an understanding to this effect existed, good, bad  or indifferent.  Alderman McKillop stated that the  gas company and T. Madden had paid  their share of the expense of the bylaws  submitted to further their interests and  he thought the tramway company should  do  so also.  Alderman Fletcher thought the matter  was arranged by 'mutual ' agreement  between the city and the company, but  Mr. Macdonald professed ignorance of  any such agreement. lie suggested that  the matter be leftover.  Alderman Beer remarked that it was  ��� strange that every member of the council  had the idea, that the company would  allow this $200 cheque to go towards  paying the expenses of the bylaw. 1 fow-  ever, lie moved that the mabter'be laid  on"the"ttiblera4"the_letter-involved-'the-  refu'nding of $2000 which could not be  carried out until the road had been  formally taken over.' _ The question will,  therefore, come up at a future meeting.  The Dominion Permanent Loan Company wroteto state that they would test  the legality of the license' tax if any  attempt) to collect it was made. The  company argued that they were among  the principal factors in building up British Columbia cities, and that in levying  the tax Municipalities wore taking . it  most injudicious course. '> They added  that if the tax was.col looted the amount  would be- collected from citizens doing  business with, the company. <  City clerk Strachan stated that tiie  Great West company had also refused to  pay the tax.  Alderman Beer was of opinion that the  license should be collected -without further discussion or- delay, and that the  clerk be authorized to to take the necessary steps. He moved, seconded by alderman Kirkpatrick, that this be done, and  the resolution was carried.  A petition from the city to the government, asking for a graut of land and  funds towards building a high school in  Nelson was read and received the endor-  sation of the council.  The special committee, consisting of  aldermen Fletcher, Kirkpatrick and Beer,  to examine into the matter of applications from citizens for permission to use  outside electrical power, reported as  follows: ''Your committse appointed to  consider the matter of securing power  for the use of citizens applying for same  report that in their opinion it is desirable that companies doing business in  Nelson, and thus benefitting the city by  the expenditure of money incidental to  the building and operating of. their  plants, in addition to holding taxable  property, should be encouraged and have  SATURDAY MORNING, JANUARY G,  1900.

It is also our opinion that ib  should not be the policy of the city to  derive,revenue as a corporation by handling the product of outside companies in  competition with companies having as  large interests in the city as the Nelson  Coke it Gas Company, which "will shortly  be in a position to supply all additional  power required in the city. If cases  should arise where it is an absolute necessity to meet the business requirements of  citizens as to electric power which  neither the city nor the gas company  can supply, we suggest that they be  dealt with on their merits. We would  recommend that Dr. LaBau be permitted  to use the electric power supplied by the  West Kootenay Light & Power Company solely for medical purposes, and  that the company be notified that such  connection should be made."  The report was adopted.  James Foot exhibited a pattern of fire  escape which he sells at twenty-five cents  a foot, and asked to be excused from  paying a hawker's license on the ground  that the ladder would be manufactured  in the city. He was informed that a $5  tax would cover his case.  The council adjourned to next Wednesday at :j o'clock.  Supposed Suicide at Sandon.

Niow Yoitic, January 5.���A dispatch to  tho Post from Paris says :  "M. Deroulede  and Buffet were taken in the same train  at five  o'clock  this'morning  across the  Belgian frontier.     Their  relatives  were  allowed  to  accompany  them      If they  transgress the decree of banishment and  shall be caught on French soil, they will  be subject to confinement  in  a  fortress  for the double term of their original sentences.    They lose all  political  and  certain public civil  rights, but retain   the  administration       of      their      property  and        control      of      their        children  though    losing    other    family     rights,  such    as    the     possibility     of     guardianship.    M. Guerin loses all civil rights,  and   us   he   is  condemned   as   well  for  offences  against  tho common  law, may  possibly have to pass ten years' imprisonment in the central penitentiary instead  of   in   a  fortress, as  a purely  political  criminal.    The senate, after a formal session,  will  now adjourn  until  after the  elections, which are of great  moment to  the government, as tho  new senate will  have to sit again as a high court  for the  trial of Marcel Habert. " The late election  of a Conservative deputy in the Ardeche,  hitherto a Republican district, in spite of  government influence, and the concentration of the Republicans on  the  Dreyfus-  ard candidacy is  exploited as  a sign  of  popular  reaction.     This   would  be   the  case in England, but cannot be  counted  on with certainty iu France.    The  ojjpo-  sition  newspapers generally  speak with  discouragement and appeal to time for a  remedy.  FORTY THOUSAND GERMAN RIFLES  Landed in Pretoria Since the War Began.  Bisklin", January 5.���The seizure of the  Bundesrath remains the dominant topic  of the German press. A prominent  officiurof the German foreign office, who  was interviewed this evening by the'correspondent of the Associated Press said  that Great" Britain had not yet .answered  Germany's request for an explanation of;  the seizure, .but that a reply was , expected in the course of-a few days. The  foreign office,  according  to this  official,'  IF PRENTICE LEAVES HIS SIDE  Semlin May Ask for Dissolution.  Victoria, January 5.���[Special to the  Tribune].���J. II. Turner today gave  notice   of   this  resolution  for  Monday:  "That in view of the defeat of the  government on Thursday the 1th instant  on resolution for the consideration of the  speech of his honor the lieutenant  governor, and on resolution for the adjournment of the house, therefore, be it  resolved that the government has lost  control of this house and also the confidence of the country."  There appears to be no reason to doubt  that the speaker will be justified in  giving a casting vote on this resolution to  the effect that it is defective in  logic, so called defeat being in consequence of a few hours delay in a  member's arrival. Apart from Turner's  notice there are no developments today  in the political situation. Rumor, however, makes free with the name of Prentice to the effect that his absence is not  accidental, but designed, in consequence  of unwillingness to further support the  government. Ib is hinted that upon  evidence of such being the case Semlin  may ask for a dissolution before his position is weakened by actual defeat in the  house. Speaker Forster is being severely  criticized by the opposition for, as they  allege, having only become a partisan of  the government, making rulings from  time to time to suit the exigencies of the  case, without any regard to parliamentary preceedent. He is not unlikely to  be discussed on the floor of the house.  BOUNDARY'S CAPITAL CITY IS  Making Good Progress.  Gk ken wood, January 5.���The Hunter-  Kendrick Company have purchased the  two adjoining lots to their brick block on  Copper " street. The two lots -have a  froutage of 50 feet.

Two additional candidates for alder-  manic honors in the east ward have entered the field. The new men are Hamilton Byers, who has had experience in  municipal matters in the city of Kaslo,  and C. Morrison of the firm of Morrison  & Caldwell. Their entry into the contest gives the electors of the east ward  an opportunity to make a choice from  five representative business men. The  other candidates are J. A. Irving, W. J.  Wilson and Dr. G. A. B. Hall.  J. Lindblad, superintendent at the  Summit-Ymir mine near Ymir, received  some very encouraging assays yesterday  from samples taken from the crosscut  from the lower tunnel- The ledge at this  point is made up of about five feet of  white quartz, wliich sampled $1.20 in  gold and one and half ounces silver, and  a ten inch streak of black quartz which  assayed $40.20 in gold and 22 ounces silver. These latest assays should have an  appreciable effect upon the price of Summit-Ymir stock which has been much  lower than the appearance of the property warranted.  LABOR SITUATION IN THE SLOCAN  is trying to ride roughshod over Germany. On being-asked what Germany  would do should it turn out that the  Bundei'srath was carrying contraband,  lie gave a uoii-committal reply, but convoyed "the impression that such a discovery would seriously damage Germany's case.  The Hanover Courier confirming earlier reports regarding the shipment of  arms and ammunition from Germany,  says that German rifles have been sent  to the Transvaal since the outbreak of  the war. Ttsuys: "We know, from a  trustworthy source, that 40,000 German  rifles of the newest and best construction  have arrived at Pretoria in good condition.

Sandon, January 5���[Special to the  Tribune].���The Silver Lead Mines Association have declined to entertain the  compromise, offered' by the union, and  the situation in the labor trouble is now  the same as before^ overtures for peace-  were made. The union's reply to the  owners' compromise- demanded the following schedule: Shaft men, $3.50 to S4";  'machine men, $3.50; hammer men in  drifts and raises, $3.50; hammer men in  stopes, '$3.25 ; .carmen, $3 ; laborers, inside and outside, $3 ; timber-men, $3.50 to  $1; blacksmiths, $3.50 to $1; engineers',  $3.50 to $4.

In your counter  proposition of the,27th inst., you do not  agree to the compromise wage scale presented by us and decline to sign, even  your own scale, for a longer period-than  thirty days without notice, instead of  one year as We proposed; A thirty-day  scale will'not inspire confidence in the  permanency of the settlement as we or  the public desire", but on the other hand  will lead to the belief that an early recurrence of existing differences is contemplated." The matter stands a.i it did  ��� before, any attempt was made for a compromise. The above matters were made-  public hero today.' "Touching this the  Paystreak says tomorrow: .'-The plain  fact of the matter is that the association  irf not seeking a settlement as they show  no disposition to meet altered circumstances. Things are getting serious if a  handful of mine-owners can paralyze the  district and ruin the merchants and business men of the camp, merely to create  political capital : it is about time to enquire by what right they hold power.''

Cape Town, January 5.���Witlr reference to the Boer" reports that lord Cecil  and lord Charles Bentinek were recently  wounded at Mafeking, inquiries have  been made through the correspondent of  the Associated Press at Pretoria, with  the result that it has been ascertained  that neither took part iii- the sortie and  lord Bentinck's troops were not engaged.  London, January 5.���The war   office  has received through general Forrestier-  Walker   at   Cape   Town   the  following  dispatch   from    colonel    Baden-Powell,  dated Mafeking, December 20.���"We attacked one of the enemy's works this  morning,   endeavoring    to    push    back  northward.    Our force consisted of thi��e  guns, two squadrons of the  Protectorate  regiment, one of the Bechuanaland rifles,  armored  train, etc.       The   enemy   had  strengthened   their   works   during   the  night   and   doubled the  garrison   since  yesterday's   reconnaisance.       Nevertheless   our   attack   was   carried   out and  pressed homo with the greatest  possible  gallantry  and steadiness  under  a very  hot    fire,     but     all    efforts    to    gain  the      interior      by      escalade      failed,  the fort  being practically impregnable.  Our attack,  only withdrew after six  officers had been hit and a large  number  of men. Nothing could have exceeded,the  courage and dash displayed. The general  situation   remains   unchanged   and the  health  andspi  rits  of the garrison  are  very satisfactory.    " 1  regret to  report  the following casualties: Killed.���captain  R. J.

Prisoners.���Three troopers.'.'^  General Forestier-Walker points out,  that while the despatch gives all the  names it fails to show that six officers  were hit.  London, January  0.���The Times publishes the following dispatch  from Mafeking,  dated  December 2(5th: "At dawn  today colonel Baden-Powell organized an  unsuccessful attack upon a  strong  position of the enemy at Gametree, two miles  from  Mafeking,  from  which  the  Boers  have been  maintaining a desultory but  annoying shell and   rifle fire  for several  weeks.    The  railway  has recently been  reconstructed   between   the    town   and  Gametree, where the Boers had destroyed  it, the final repairs being made  in preparation for the sorties.    During   the night  the   armored' train,   with    Maxim/nj-d,  Hotchkiss guns, under captain  Williams  aud troops, took up a position for attack. -  'Captain, lord   Charles  Bentinek and   a  squadron were upon the left, T while the  extreme left wing was,occupied by artillery under major Panzera and  a  galloping Maxim of the Cape Police, the whole  being uncler colonelHoro.   Emplacements  were 'thrown  up  during  the night, the  orders being to attack at' dawn  and the -  artillery  lire  to  desist  upon  prolonged  tooting  from'  tho 'armored   train.   ��� At  daybreak , the   guns   opened ' fire ' and.  rapidly drew the rcplyof the enemy, our  shells   bursting  within   effective  range.  Captain. Vernon gave the,signal "to cease'  firing-and to advance, his squadroirleading  off.    Gametree  is   surrounded  with   ,  scrub,   which   contained   many   .sharpshooters, and their accuracy" of  fire  stil1  further confused   the  men who "had foi-    ,  lowed captain Vernon and who saw him  and   liis   brother officers   killed,.  Being  without commanders,   they were  driven  back at one time, but they endeavored to  scale the  fort at another.    They found  tho   position   of    the    Boers,   however,  -almost impregnable,   When we retired under cover of the  armored train,'so many men had been  wounded that a suspension of hostilities  occurred under the auspices of the Red  "Cross. While the wounded were being  attended to numbers of Boers left their  entrenchments and gathered'around. I  spoke to several tattered, and dirty, bub  -physically well' men: Many of them  were 'undersized ' and " wore -beards.  Later on I called the attention* of the  field cornet to four of his own men who  were rifling dead bodies. He expressed  his regret to "a British officer that.despit'e  his instructions to respect the dead, the  younger Boers were unruly and beyond  his control, and lie accused the British of  stripping general Rock and" leaving him  naked and wounded on tho field, thus indirectly, causing his death."

Now he is  credited with placing a steamboat and a  railway at the service of the honorable  Joe to bring him on the scene of battle in  time to embarrass the government. The  honorable Joe got there in time to embarrass, hut not to defeat the government.    If there is a general election in the  province within the coming year, it is a  doubtful question what combination will  hold the reins of power. But one tiling  is certain, that no combination will hold  the reins of power who will interfere  with the eight-hour law.  Thk government's idea iu offering to  provide a company of mounted scouts for  South Africa to be recruited in British  Columbia and forwarded as far as Halifax at the expense of the province is a  good one, .Tiie Dominion government  and after tlieiu the imperial .authorities j.  "'Com pa red with former years it has  been a notable fact that crime in Butte  and Silver Bow county has greatly decreased during the past year," says the  Anaconda Standard. Has the suppression of public gambling and the determination not to run Butte any more tisa  wide open town had anything to do with  the change ?        .   During the year 1899 the southeastern  portion of British Columbia produced in  gold, silver, lead aud copper four times  the value of all the gold, silver, lead,  copper, nickel and iron produced in the  province of Ontario. This is creditable  to the brains and energy of the people in  a district not ten years old, or barely ten.  The Wholesale Trade of Nelson.

Mrs. Richard iJjsy recently placed an order with Freeman &  Curtis, joinors, for a $(K)0 pulpit which  she will present to the church, and which  is to be erected at the east .-side of the  chancel before lUagter, Work is now in  progress, and the pulpit when completed  will be a work of art. It is being built  on drawings prepared by G. I). Curtis,  architect, the carving and ornamental  work being done by George Freeman.  Tho design is late gothic, and the pulpit  stands six feet in all from the ground,  the floor of the pulpit being three feet  from the floor of the church, and reached  by a staircase- with open work balustrade. It is octagonal in shape, the bast!  being finished with a relief of fietir de  lys and the railing with shamrocks in re*  lief. The material is natural oak without finish of any description. The .gen*  eral design will correspond to the general  effect of the interior furnishings, and the  pulpit u'ill be a decided addition to the  church.

The men  could easily bo raised and they would be  of  the stuff to do good service.  added that the parly would not get one  cent from him if it declared  for the policy of imperialism. "Not  a cent to imperialism���not a cent to  renegade Americanism," said he and adds,  "I am in favor of securing all the West  Indies if avo can do so. I believe  they. Avould make desirable and  proper acquisitions to our territory.  That sort of expansion is on the right  line, but it should not go beyond the  territory on the continent. Wo have no  business, either in morals or politics, to  take and keep the Philippines."  Pretoria Despatch Confirmed.  London, January 5.���A Mafeking despatch just received, but dated December  20th, confirms the report of the British  sortie from that place, which was first  announced from Pretoria, December JJOth.  The Mafeking despatch says: "There  was a sortie today with the view of  capturing the Boer earthworks, but it  was unsuccessful. The works were  crowded with Boers awaiting the assault  and a hail of bullets forced the British to  retire killing and wounding a number.  HUDSON'S BAY  COMPANY.  INCORPORATED 1670.

The mine managers  have  withdrawn   their  proposals.    The  leisurely way their A'iu*ioiis meetings considering the question have been adjourned  (from   lack   oi'   a    quorum,   reasons  gastronomieal  and   their  trival excuses  show the degree of anxiety show by these  gentlemen to arrange a settlement.'   Pew  have been deceived.    It occurs  to  most  of the public their offer was hypocritical,  and little surprise is evinced  at the  outcome.    It was considered by them an opportune time to pose as martyrs  before  commissioner Clute, to whom they represented themselves as  so willing to  meet  the miners half way, but their intentions  never were to  effect  a  settlement, and  when the miners surprised them by making a concession it looked too dangerously  noar harmony to suit the objects of some  of the managers, and so they have been  compelled to unmask before the commissioner had left the province.  Bad faith has been shown by the managers from the inception of these negotiations by sending representatives to  treat with the miners not empowered to  act for them by concession. Is it not  natural to question their sincerity in the  scale submitted to the miners? Who  would say they would not, if accepted,  have repudiated their own proposals?  In attempting to shift the responsibility  of the trouble on the shoulders of the  miners they have utterly failed, while  behind their smooth professions they  now disclose the dragon. Their organs,  to draw attention from the last ultimatum of the mine managers, heap abuse  on-the minors' unions*, speaking of them  ���as high handed; as anarchists. How dare  thoy utter such words; how dare they  sollagrantly attempt to implead the .public! Friends of tho eight-hour law are  not blinded by invectives, which  offend aud 'insult the intelligence of the -whole laboring class.-  We are not alone iu tho opinion that if  the occupation of mine managing could  be divorced froni politics, the shareholders  might then look for divideuds. Even  now evidence may not be wanting to  prove that a scheme has been laid by the  association to carry their political  hobbies to the Dominion capital, and let  us suggest here that they may not be  more successful in federal  politics  than  Ward Bros,  REAL ESTATE AND  GENERAL INSURANCE   AGENTS ���   Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S,,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  they have been in provincial. One stands  aghast iit the enormous sums the idiosyu-  eraeies of these managers have cost their  companies. One mine, it is said, will require an expenditure of $50,000 to recover  it. The question arises how long will the  stockholders stand such management?  How long will the people permit such  mulish humanity to impede progress?  E. P. Bremnhr.  New Denver, January 1th.  Captain Hodgins Writes From Capetown.  Mrs. A. E. Hodgins has received a letter  from her husband captain  Hodgius, who  is Nelson's representative among the officers of the Canadian infantry contingent  now at the front in South  Africa.     Captain Hodgins wrote from Cape Town on  November   29th,   the  Sardinian  having  been iu port all clay.    He states that the  voyage was most monotonous, only three  ships having been sighted since  leaving  Canada.    Most of the volunteers suffered  from seasickness, captain Hodgius  being  ill for three days.    When  the Sardinian  came to anchor she was boarded  by the  health   officials    who    made   a   careful  scrutiny of the vessel, aud then  granted  a clean bill of health.     The  mayor and  aldermen of the  city then  boarded  the  transport and extended a warm Avelcome  to the  Canadians.    The  contingent was  to disembark on the following  day, November 30th, and go to the  front  after a  week's tour of garrison duty.     En  A*oy-  age captain Hodgins  was  photographed  with a fellow officer, whose lack of inches  makes him, noticeable.    The  Nelson  officer is the tallest man  in  xhe command,  and his 76 inches in contrast  with  those  of his  short  comrade  made  a  striking  contrast.  The men of the Kootenay detachment  have been attached to the British Columbia half company under captain  Hodgin's command. Sergeant Dickson,  of the Nelson rifle conipanj*, ha* received  lance corporal's stripes in captain Hod-  gin's command. Privates Patterson and  Lee, also of the local corps, have been attached to the Maxim gun section, under  captain A. C. Bell, late aidecle-eanip to  major-general Hutton. The Nelson boys  were all in good health and great spirits.  Good Year for Live Stock.

THE   MAYOKALTY   CONTEST.  To TIIK ELECTORS ok Nelson :  ]n asking for your support for  the oflice 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 tlio 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 bo maintained at a  high state of efficiency, and the  revenue therefrom collected closely  and promptly. The rates should bo  so adjusted that a fair prolit 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 iu  wliich 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  giaded. Sidewalks should be laid  with some uniformity, and not according to the different ideas of different officials.  4. The steamboat inteiests 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 merchandise.  5. I am opposed to saloon expansion. There are already a sufficient  number of places in Nelson ab wliich  liquor ban be obtained at retail, and  the number should not be increased  until the city has a population of  ten thousand.  (5. 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 front the team traffic on  our main business thoroughfares.  7. None but general bylaws should  be passed, and when pa-sod thoy  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  iu 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 theniaximuui, for,  without men, mere apparatus would  be useless in times of danger.

To THE CITIZENS OP NELSON :  In response to numerous requests  from business men, property owners  and ratepayers, I oiler myself as a  candidate for Mayor of the City of  Nelson at the approaching Municipal Elections.  Briefly stated, my platform is as  follows:  Jf 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 the wholesale and  other business interests.  I belieAre 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.  1 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.  T 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 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 aud opportunities  lor healthful enjoyment, *  On'all'imuiicipal 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  ���iri Nelson should be under the control of the city, arid that every effort  should be made to establish a Jiigli  school 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 otherwise.

honorable Joe got there in time to embarrass," but not to defeat the government.        -	
If there is a general election in the

is certain, that no combination will hold
the reins of power who will interfere

During the year 1S99 the southeastern

. Within a short time St., Saviour's
will boast of the handsomest pulpit in
British Columbia, Mrs. Hiehard Day recently placed an order with Freeman &
Curtis, joiners, for a .$000 pulpit which
she will present to the church, and which
is to be erected at the 'east side oi' the
chancel before Master. Work is now in
progress, and the pulpit when completed
will be a work of art. it is being built
on drawings prepared by G. D. Curtis,
architect, the carving and ornamental
work being done by George Freeman.
The design is late gothic, and the pulpit
stands six feet in all from the ground,
the floor of the pulpit being three feet
from the floor of the church, and reached
by a .staircase with open work balustrade, ft is octagonal in shape, the base,
being finished with a relief of fleurde
lys and the railing with shamrocks in relief. The material is natural oak without finish of any description. The general design will correspond to the general
effect of the interior furnishings, and the
.pulpit will be a decided addition to tho
church.  .      .
Would Only Take What Suited Him
New York, January <!..-—Andrew Car'
negio emphatically denies a report published ;. here this morning that,, he.: has
promised to subscribe $50,000, to ;the Re^
publican -national; convention., flinch';iujd
added that the party would not get one
cent from him if it declared
for the policy of imperialism. "Not
a cent to imperialism—not a cent to
renegade Americanism," said he and adds,
"I am in favor of securing all the West
Indies if Ave can do so. I believe
they, would make desirable and
proper acquisitions to our territory.
That sort of expansion is on the right
line, but it should not go beyond the
territory on the continent. We have no

Pretoria Despatch Confirmed.
London, January 5.—A Mafeking despatch just received, but dated December
20th, confirms the report of the British
sortie from that place, which was first
announced from Pretoria, December 30th.
The Mafeking despatch says: "There
was a sortie today with the view of
capturing the Boer earthworks, but it
was unsuccessful. The works were
crowded with Boers awaiting the assault
and a hail of bullets forced the British to
retire killing and wounding a number.

THE   FARCE   DROPPED.
The curtain has .just dropped on that
screaming farce called " Compromise,
coldly.deliberatoly. The mine managers
have withdrawn their proposals. The
leisurely way''their various meetings considering the question have been adjourned from lack of a quorum, reasons
gastronomical and their trival excuses
show the degree of anxiety show by these
gentlemen to arrange a settlement. Fevv
havc been deceived. It occurs to most
of the public their offer was'hypocritical,
■ and little surprise is evinced at the outcome. It wits considered by them an opportune time to pose as martyrs before
commissioner Clute, to whom, they represented themselves as so willing to meet
the miners half way, but their intentions
never were to elfect a settlement, and
when the miners surprised them by making a concession it looked too dangerously
near harmony to suit the objects of some
of the managers, and so they have been
compelled to unmask before the commissioner had left the province.
Bad faith has been shown by the managers froin'-the inception  of  these negotiations  by  sending    representatives to
treat with the miners not empowered' to
act foi-  them  by  concession.    Is it not
natural to question their sincerity in the
scale -submitted  to  the  miners?    Who
would say they would  not, if accepted,
have  repudiated   their  own  proposals?
In attempting to shift the responsibility
of the trouble on  the  shoulders  of the
miners they  have  utterly failed,  while
behind  their smooth    professions   they
now disclose the ,dragon.   Their  organs,
to draw attention from the last  ultimatum of the-mine  managers, heap  abuse
on tiie miners' unions, speaking" of  them
as high handed ,* as ana i;chi?>ts,  flow dare
they utter such words;  how' dure tliey*
so flagrantly attempt to mislead tho pub-
lie!    Friends of tho  eight-hour  law are
not     blinded     by      hivee-ivcs,    which
offend       and       insult      the       intelligence    of   the   whole    laboring     class*.
"We are not alone iu the  opinion   that if
the occupation of mine  managing could
be divorcedfroni politics, the shareholders
might then  look  for  dividends.     Even
now  evidence may  not  be wanting to
prove that a scheme has been laid b3r the
association    to    carry    their    political
hobbies to the Dominion capital, and let
us suggest here  that  they may  not  be
more successful in federal  politics  than

aghast at the enormous sums the idiosyn-

Captain Hodgins Writes From Capetown.
Mrs. A. E. Hodgins has received a letter
from her husband captain  Hodgins, who
is Nelson's representative among the officers of the Canadian infantry contingent
now at the front in South  Africa.    Captain Hodgius wrote from Cape  Town on
November   29th,   the  Sardinian  having
been iu port all day.    He states that the
voyage was most monotonous, only three
ships having been sighted  since  leaving
Canada.r   Most of the volunteers suffered
from seasickness, captain Hodgins being
ill for three days.    When  the Sardinian
came to anchor she was boarded  by the
health   officials    who    made   a   careful
scrutiny of the vessel, and then  granted
a clean bill of health.     The  mayor and
aldermen of the  city then  boarded the
transport and extended a warm welcome
to the  Canadians.    The  contingent was
to disembark on the following  day, November 30th, and go to the front after a
week's tour of garrison duty.     En  voyage captain Hodgins  was  photographed
with a fellow oflicer, whose lack of inches
makes him noticeable.    The  Nelson  officer is the tallest man  in  the  command,
and his 7(5 inches in contrast  with  those
of his  short  comrade  made  a striking
contrast.
^ The men of the Kootenay detachment
have been attached to the British Columbia half company under captain
Hodgin's command. Sergeant Dickson,
of the Nelson rifle company, has received
lance corporal's stripes in captain Hod-
gin's command. Privates Patterson and
Lee, also of the local corps, have been attached to the Maxim gun section, under
captain A, C. Boll, late .aide-de-camp to
major-general Hutton. The Nelson boys
were all in good health and .great spirits.
Good Year for Live Stock.
Toronto, January 5.—Mr.  Wade,  Dominion registrar  of  live  stock says  the
past  year  has   been   the   best    in   the
history of Canada for the cattle trade.

To the Electors oi'1 Nelson :
In asking for your support for
the office of mayor at ,the coming
election, it is only ftiir that I should
state iny views, briefly, on what aro
considered public questions or
issues. No doubt, during the campaign you Avill 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
0 revenue therefrom collected closely
and promptly. The rates should be
so adjusted that a fair prolit 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 ill
"which he deals.
2. Direct taxation can only be
kept low by limiting tiie issue of
debentures. No debentures should
be issued except for tho 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 dif- .-.
ferent officials.
4. The steamboat interests centered at Nelson are second only in
importance to the railway interests,
and the city should provide modern
dock aud -warehouse facilities at
which this business can be handled.
The docks aud 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
ii umber 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. *    ,
(i. 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 bylaws should
be parsed, and when passed they
.should be enforced.
S. Corporations that have secured franchises from the city should
be made to live tip to the letter and
the spirit of their agreements; but
in adjusting differences' that may
arise there should not bo 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 themaximum, for,
without men, mere apparatus would
be useless in times' of-danger.

MAYORALTY CONTEST.
To tiir Citizens ok Nki.sox :
In response to mimorous requests
from business men, property owners
and ratepayer.'', 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.
hi furtherance of this idea, I will
continue my consistent advocacy of
the construction of a wharf wliich
will meet present and future re-°
qnirements 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 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 main-
taihi n g the lire 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 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. o
In my opinion a sufficient amount
of money should be expended upon
the parks of the city so that they
will piovido the citizens wich 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 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
iu the event of my election I will
consider it my duty to share with
the council the ros-ponsibility of the
civic administration, believing, as 1
do, that the assumption of entire
authority by one individual is subversive of all constitutional govern- .
meut, whether municipal or otherwise.    iTom-s respectfully,
