 DAILY  EDITION   BY  MAIL  FIVE   DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION   BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH  YEAR  NELSON:  THURSDAY MORNING, JANUARY 25,  1900.  PRICE FIVE  CENTS.  COUNTER PETITION NOW IN  Against Eight-Hour Law's Repeal.  Victoria, January 24.���[Special  to the Tribune].���A monster petition from the merchants of  Nelson  and  the   Avorking   miners   of   tho  vicinity was presented to the legislature by Hon. J. Fred Hume today  protesting against any interference  . with   the   eight-hour   law.        The  member for  Rossland presented a  similar petition from that district.  �� The chief business of  the  short  session of the house was the debate  " on the motion  by  Helmcken  reintroducing the. Tramway Incorporation bill of the  last session,'which  - was   disallowed    by    the    federal  authorities on account of its  inhibition of Japanese  labor.    Helmcken presented the bill just as it was  previously passed, with the request  to the legislature to deal  witli the  objectionable section as it  sees fit,  his only object being to  provide a  speedy means of incorporation.  Ymir has made quite a hit by  sending in thirty applications for  enrollment for the rough rider corps  offered by the legislature for service in South Africa. So far there  have been 300 volunteers.  The trades and labor council of  Vaucouver has unanimously refused  to accede to the request forwarded  by Ralph Sihith that the council  should pass a resolution denouncing  Joe Martin for his present attitude  ..iii provincial politics. Smith's letter was simply filed.  GREENWOOD   HAPPENINGS.  ���:"Greenwooi>, January 24.���[Special to the Tribune].���Another labor  union has been added to the list of  unions here.

Greenwood, .January 24.���[Special to The Tribune.]���Gean Shear, a  miner, left today for the Transvaal  to join the Boer army. George  Leyson, owner of the \Ah There  mine, in which Shear has been employed since last October, informed  your correspondent that Shear  asked for hit. time today, and when  questioned why he wanted to quit,  ' said that ho was going to South  Africa to join the Boers, He was  a man thirty years of age, of quiet  habits,' and was born in tlio Transvaal. '  >   The Alaska Boundary Line.  Ottawa, January 23.���The commissioners for the delimimitation  of the provisional boundary lines  about the head of Lyun canal,  O. J I. Tittman, representing the  United States, and W. F. King,  chief astronomer of tlio .Dominion,  representing the Canadian government, are holding their first meetings in this city. They are arranging their plans of operation for  marking off tho lines on the ground  .during the coming season.  Think Buller is Worsted.  Berlin, January 24.���'German  -press tacticians are almost unanimously of the opinion that the situation of the British forces around  Ladysmith is desperate. The Berliner Tagblatt prints a Brussels  special, churning that sir Charles  Warren has been signally defeated.  A military writer for the Kreuz;  Zeitung says the movement to relieve Ladysmith has failed, rendering the British line of retreat endangered.  DEADLOCK IS NOT BROKEN  Thirty Thousand Fresh Troops.  London,  January   25.���The   as-,  seinblage in Pall  Mall  outside the  w.'ir office, and  those  privileged to  wait in the lobbys, reluctantly dispersed at midnight after  the final  word that nothing more  would be  announced.     The  morning  papers  went to press with conjectures and  forecasts  of all  sorts, striving  to  guess  out something   from  Spion  Kop.    Topographic maps show that  Spion Kop is the highest part of a  rocky plcateau extending eastward  for  eight  miles.     Northwest from  Spion'Kop the plateau runs gradually   up   to  a  great  spur   of the  Drakensberg.    General Buller's in-  fan try;   to. reach    the  summit   of  Spion Kop must  cross   a   natural  glacis, three quarters of a mile wide  and climb 500 feet up a steep slope.  Nobody here seems to know, not  even the war office, what lord Roberts lias done  with ��his large reinforcements.     Six.thousand troops  awaited his arrival at  Cape Town,  and  since then. G000   others have  reached there.    Military critics are  all  hoping  that  a  good share   of  these 12,000-men have gone tohelp  general Buller, and they argue that  a few  days'wait  may  make him  strong   enough   to    overcome   the  deadlock.  There are 19,000 additional troops  at sea, and this heavy weight on  the British side is expected to destroy the equilibrium now existing  on every field of operation.     .  The British losses up to. date are  ���killed, wounded and captured, according to general Buller's last list:  total, S,21(5 men.  New Surgery in the Field.  London, Januory 24.���The war  office is coming in for considerable  criticism for, refusing to accept  offers of private houses for ihe reception of the wounded from South  Africa. This patriotic movement  has been snubbed by the curt reply  that the wounded would be retained  in the hospitals' until they were  able to dispense with nursing. On  the other hand, the army surgeon-.'  employment of the .Roentgen rays  in field surgery has proved most  successful, and has me,t with the  highest commendation. Orders  have been received for a fresh  equipment and skilled operators,  and before February it is likely  that every column at the front will  be furnished with a Roentgen ray  outfit.  Ready to Arbitrate.  London, January 25.���The Time-,  iu a special article discussing the  recent speech of count Von Buelow,  the German foreign secretary, with  regard to a settlement internationally as to what constitutes contiu-  'band^ and what are tho-rights-of  neutrals, says : "We do not doubt  that overtures for a full discussion  of the subject, if made in a friendly  spirit and on broad grounds of pub-  lie" interest, would be frankly and  promptly accepted by the British  government. What better work  could be found" for the tribunal'  created by the Hague conference  than the work of settling the ques-"  tion of damages for seizures."  No Title for Beach Claims.  Vancouver, January 21.���Although i'c is reported that many  British Columbians think of setting  out for Cape Nome in the spring,  they will be better advised not to  do so. No valid legal title can be  given to beach gold claims, either  inthe Cape Nome district or. at any  other point on the coast of Alaska,  and as a result of a recent decision'  to this effect, given on behalf of  the United States, there is certain to be very aud serious trouble  over the acquisition of and holding  of claims..   Important Industry for Dunnville.  BrKFAU), New York, January  24.���Mayor Ramsey of Dunnville,  Ontario, was in the city today and  inspected the shops* of the Depew  Manufacturing Company. The company is anxious to establish a  branch in Canada for the manufacture of agricultural implements.  Mayor Ramsey was most favorably  received, and it is altogether probable that the branch establishment  will be located at Dunnville. About  300 hands are to be employed.  MORLEY CIVES HIS VERSION  Of the Government's Blundering.  London, January 24.���John Morley, addressing his  constituents at  Forfar this evening, made but little  reference  to  the present aspect of  the war iu South Africa,  confining  himself chiefly to a  renewal  of his  indictment of the policy  which led  to hostilities.    He ridiculed the notion that a  few  Boer successes entitled the Transvaal to be described  as a first-class  military power, and  declared that the fact of the Boers  sending the ultimatum no more disposed  of   all  the  other  questions  than the defiance of the American  colonists, in throwing the tea into  Boston harbor, disposed   of all the  questions of the war  of American  Independence.  It is quite certain, continued Mr.  Morley, that  had  the government  appreciated    the   temper    of  the  Transvaal    people,    and    foreseen  what   was   coming���what   we   all  know in these black,  gloomy days  ���there would  have  been no'war.  It is dreadful, but true, that a want  of foresight and decent information  led the government to stumble into  war in the dark.    Lord Salisbury's  menacing speech of July 28th, if applied to a  great  power, could only  have meant war.    It was absurd, if  the government really believed in a  Dutch gpnspiracy, to spend time in  negotiations   regarding   the   franchise.     The   conspiracy,   however,  was an afterthought'of the government, conjured up  to mask a hideous and  ghastly blunder.    In conclusion Mr. Morley declined to commit himself as to what would happen in the future,  but he warned  his hearers not to be duped by the  idea that  the   Boers after defeat  would settle down quietly.  With reference to the point at  which the conflict would come and  end, Mr. Morley observed: "Something depends on a chance, wliich I  hope is remote, but it is certainly  not invisible, of our being called on  to meet dangers in other quarters."  the other side." He moved that-the  resolutions be laid on the table, in-  definitely. No one opposed the  motion, and iiie resolutions were  declared dead^ ���     .   . ,  Where the Money Went.  Montreal,   January' 24.���;What  became of one-half of the $173,000  stolen from the  Ville  Marie bank  was ascertained yesterday from the  books of broker Walter E. Fellowes,  when] they  were  produced before  judge Choquet.     It will be remembered during the trial of W/ Weir,  ex-president, - that   the   enormous  sums were spoken about as if consisting   of   two   amounts,   one of  $83,000 and the other of $90,000. It  is now known  that $82,132,72 was  Iostby Lcmieux in his specula tion sat  Fellowes   office,    which   he   made  through a  boy, then   IS   years of  age.    Where the remaining $90,000  went to is still to   be .discovered,  and upon the solution of this problem may depend the arrest of the  other   people.    The  books  of   the  bank and those of  the  brokers under the accusation   are   to   be   reexamined immediately, for the purpose of clearing  up   several   little  "points of the case,~and especially to"  come to a* decision upon a, course of  action regarding the $90,000,    This  task may not be an  easy one, as it  is alleged  the. ex-chief accountant  .consumed much money during the  last couple of years, independently,  of stock speculation.'  Rough on the Duke.  London, January 24.���.The duke  of York is anxious for service iu the  admiralty, and "will probably receive a command. But, though lie  intimated that he was desirous of  duty with tho Cape squadron, he  will not attain his desire, for the  .same reason which prevented the  duke of Connaught from going to  the front. No one was more anxious to go out than the duke" of  Cambridge. Realizing, however,  that this was utterly impossible,  he consoles himself by making life  miserable for the high war office  officials. He is continually appearing with some new suggestion, and  is generally being turned over to  general sir Evelyn Wood, adjutant-  general to the forces, who is very  deaf. So firmly is the duke of  Cambridge convinced that Jiis advice is essential to tlio country's  existence, that he will not take his  usual winter  trip to the continent.  METHUEN MAKES NO MOVE  His Men in Good Shape.  London, January 24.���A correspondent of the Times at Modeler  river, telegraphing Tuesday, says:  "The reports of* deserters agree that  the situation of the Boers at Ma-  gersfontein is becoming unbearable,  because the .camp is unsanitary.  Enteric fe~*er is-spreading, and vegetables '..aye; wanted. On the other  hand the liealtlV-Of the British camp  is satisfactory, although the ground  has been exhausted by the long encampment and, the trees have been  cut down by." insect pests and dust  stornis."  t.  -i-'V!, ' ���" ��� '  London, Janifary 25.���The Cape  Town correspondent of the Times,  telegraphing Tuesday, says : "The  Bbndites are preparing to sieze the  first decisive British victory, or the  invasion of'republican territory, as  the signal for a/ violent peace agitation. They will accompany their  appeal for magnanimity by. covertly hinting that they are unable  to restrain the Dutch colonists from  rising." -  London, January 25.���Shortly  after 12 o'clock the war office announced that-, notliing further, in  the Avay. of dispatqhes, would be  given out durin^the night.  Seek to-Destroy the Mines.  London, January-25.���The correspondent of the Times, at Lorenzo,  Marquez, telegraphing .yesterday,  and dealing with the lawlessness of  the. low class; qf Boers, who are  getting beyond; thp control of the  government, and the better class of  officials, who are honestly desirous  of protecting , life and property,  says : "2Iy - informants are convinced that the'only way to save  the Rand fij'om the fury of the  rebels is to cut off the retreat of the  Boers in the direelbioii of Johannesburg.

Denver, Col., January 34.--The  Colorado Editorial Association, at  its annual meeting here, adopted  resolutions declaring the paper  trust to-be an "enemy to newspapers, publishers and readers, and  therefore to society and good government." Gongress is asked immediately to repeal all tariffs on  paper and its component parts, and  the resolution declares that the association, will consider as an enemy  any senator or congressman who  fails to do his utmost to repeal such  laws at the present session of congress, and will oppose the re-election of any such member.

London, January 25.���A dispatch  to the Daily Mail from Lorenzo  Marque'/., dated Wednesday says:  Thi". morning all passengers booked  for the Transvaal were stopped by  government order, with the exception of the members of the Russian  ambulance corps, who proceeded by  special train.  A Comparison.  The Rossland Record stated that  the people of Rossland had, through  the good offices of mayor Goodeve,  secured a better  rate for   electric  lighting than that given the people  of Nelson   by their  municipality.  This  contention  was   disputed by  The Ti-iniJNi-, which gave figures  that   proved   that   the   people  of  Rossland pay 25 per cent more' for  electric lighting than the people of  Nelson.      Nelson   business    houses  pay an average of 75 cents for each  10-eandle ' power    lamp    used   as  against $1 paid by Rossland  business  houses.  *   Nelson's  residences  pay" an average  of 37|  cents for  each 16-caridle power lamp used as  against 50 cents paid by Rossland's  residents.    This is disputed: by the  Record.    It says that the lights in  Rossland are  more efficient   than  the lights in Nelson, ancl that they I  can be-used twenty-four hours each  day iu Rossland  as against seventeen hours each day in Nelson. The  light furnished the people of Nelson is just as efficient as is the light  furnished the people of Rossland,  and both  systems  have  had  mishaps in the past, but neither have  been   interrupted   since   the    day  mayor Goodeve secured  that  wonderful reduction that the /Record is  making so much fuss over.; Giving  people something that they cannot  possibly utilize is not looked upon as  ah advantage by people generally,  and if the people of Rossland were  allowed to choose between  paying  for a 17-hour and a 24-hour service,  they would undoubtedly decide that  the shorter service would suit their  pocket-books better than the longer  one. '-������'-..'-.'.  But it is not with the rates paid  by the people of the two towns that  the Record alone deals.  That paper  has the hardihood to state that the  payroll   of   the private"-' company,  operating the city system of lighting at Rossland .is of more advantage to the people. of that town  than the profits'of the 'municipal-  owned plan b are-to--the: people  of  Nelson. The TitiHUNi" is within the  limit when it states that the payroll of the  private company  operating at Rossland, so far as city lighting is concerned, is no greater than  that of the municipal plant.at Nelson.    The one gives steady employment to three   men;   so does tho  other.   The wages paid by the City  of Nelson are as high as the wages  paid by the West Kootenay Power  &  Light   Company.    The   Record,  however, would have it appear that  all  the   money   disbursed   by  the  West   Kootenay   Power   k   Light  Company for construction and maintenance of its entire system should  be  credited  as  directly benefiting  the people of Rossland.  Such a contention is absurd.    It might as well  be  contended  that all  the money  disbursed by  the  Canadian Pacific  Railway Company, on construction  and maintenance 'account in south-  ern   British   Columbia,   should _be_  credited as alone benefiting the people of Nelson.  The people of the towns of Rossland and Nelson can derive no benefit from the operation of electric  light plants in their town except  from (1) the cost to them as individuals for light furnished, and' (2)  the disbursement of the 'profit-  made from selling the light used.  As regards the first, Nelson's people get light 25 per cent cheaper  than the people of Ros.-land ; und,  second, the profit derived from ,'ell-  ing the light at Nelson goes  directly to all the people, while at  Rossland it goes to the shareholders  .of a company, none of whom are  residents of that town.  The Record asserts that the municipal plant at Nelson has be.".n a  bill of expense to the city, and that  it has been an unprofitable venture.  This is merely an assertion.for the  city's books clearly show that the  revenue from the electric light  plant pays the cost of operating  aud maintenance, the interest on  the debentures issued to purchase  it, provides for the sinking fund to  redeem the debentures at maturity,  and, in addition, 10 per cent on tin-  total sum invc-ted in the plant,  The plant and franchise is so valuable a one that the West Kootenay  Power it Light Company would  Willingly pay the city $100,000 in  cash today for an absolute transfer,  There is one thing that cannot  be disputed, however, that is, the  people of Nelson prefer the conditions that exist in Nelson to the  conditions that exist in Rossland,  More: the people of Rossland know  that 'mayor Goodeve blundered!  when lie and his council did not-  purchase the Rossland electric light  plant when they had the opportunity.  BULLER'S ADVANCE BALKED  Boer Force Strengthened.  London, January 25.���A dispatch  to the Times from Spearmau's  camp, dated January 23, 9:30 p.m.,  says: "The Boers today had more  guns, and are prepared to fight almost interminably, having entrenched their ridge, which  stretches in an almost broken  line from the - Drakensberg, many  miles eastward. Firing continued  throughout the day. We have not  advanced any further, but we  throw up entrenchments during  the night, from behind which the  musketry duel continued from exactly the same position as yesterday."  Spearman's Camp, Tuesday,-January 23.-9:30 p.m.���The British  field artillery and howitzers shelled  the enemy, posted on the" crest of  the ridge, this morning. The infantry, under excellent cover, kept  up an effective rifle fire at the Boers  who eventually resigned a kopje, of  which the British took possession.  When retiring the enemy sheltered  themselves behind a stone wall on  the slope of the kopje which they  held for hours. This afternoon they  ran across the ravine. The British  artillery poured shrapnel and  lyddite into them, and the infantry  took the stone wall. The British  casualty list was small.  London, January 25,���The Daily  Telegraph imblishes the following  dispatch--, from Spearman's camp,  dated January 23rd, 9.30 p. m.���  "On Monday sir Charles Warren's  force cannonaded and fusiladed the  Boer position Avest of Spion Kop,  near the Acton Homes road. A  lyddite battery co-operated with  the other batteries and Maxims.  Certainly the fire .fevas effective,  causing the enemy 'serious losses.  The Boers, however, clung desperately to. their -worksV-froni -which  they are only being very slowly  driven. Today the enemy fired  their guns ofteuer, using also the  captured 15-poimders, with shrapnel. Our casualties today were less  even than those of yesterday.  Fighting began ' abojtt< 15 in the  morning,* and continued till dusk,  but there has been nothing like a  regular engagement. The naval  big guns.assisted from Potgieters  drift in shelling the Boer positions."   CANADIAN   NEWS   BRIEFS.  J. M. Clark, ex-M. P. P., died at  his home at Smiths Falls, at the age  of 54 years.  Joseph G. Kirk, C. E, died yesterday at Stratford, Ontario, aged 91  years.

Paris, January 24.���As a result  of the accusation of the public prosecutor, M. Bulot, at the trial of  the Assumptionist Fathers before  the correctional tribunal, that "the  Assumptionists were responsible  for the election of M. Jean Charles  Bernard, socialist member for the  second district of Bordeaux, there  was a scene in the chamber of;  deputies today. M. Bernard called  M. Bulot a liar, and the minister of  justice, 21. Monis, who rose to.explain, was similarly stigmatized.  The president of the chamber of  deputies,  Al.  Desehanel, asked  the .  house to  censure "M. Bernard,;say-  ing that the day when the chamber -  allows a  minister ,..to"  be   insulted ,  with impunity, no discussion  was  possible.    Among protests from tho  rightest, M. Bernard  was censured. <  M. Laseis,  anti-Semite  member for  the Condom  district  of the   Gers,  who intends to  challenge  the government ou the high court prosecu- .'  tion,   here   shouted:    '���The   public  prosecutor is a mere minion  of the  law."      M.   Desehanel    called     M.  Lasies to   order, and   M.  Bernard  cried:    "Now the  lies   will   recommence."    M. Desehanel begged the  chamber   to   listen   to   M.   Monis'  statement, and put an  end  to  the  "scandalous proceedings."  M. Monis said he had letters of M.  Bernard 'ancl M. Chiche, revisionist  member for the first division of  Bordeaux, showing the Assumption-"  ists had aided iii their, election..  Amid uproar, M. Lasies exclaimed :  "You are a bandit and a canaille."  M. Desehanel called on him to withdraw his statement, and M. Lasies  said he begged the chamber's par-  dony but maintained the truth of  his. remarks. This increased the  tumult, during which the chamber  censured M. Lacies.  The   discussion   then   proceeded  with comparative quiet.    M. Chiche  denying that ho wrote  a  letter  to  the Assumptionists saying he owed ���  his election to them.,  A little later^  another storui broke out.    M. Bernard called M,* M&iiis'.a" slanderer,  and the chamber, at 21. Desehauel's  .request  voted   his   temporary ex:  pulsion.      21.   Bernard   refused   to',  budge.    The session was suspended  and a squad of soldiers,  headed by  the colonel commanding the guaid  at the Palais Bourbon, was marched  into   the  chamber.      The    colonel '  summoned M. Bernard to withdraw  and the latter protested, but obeyed.  The chamber  then  resumed the  transaction   of . ordinary  business.  Several other deputies having protested at remarks made by the public prosecutor concerning them, the,  premier, M. \Valdeck Rosseau. said  lie  agreed    that   the  rectifications  made by some of the deputies were  perfectly legitimate, but, lie added,  lie was astonished at the violence of *|  the  protests against a magistrate  who ."imply read   prepared papers.

That the men who were imported from the Coast, to work in the  Enterprise mine, were deceived as  to the conditions   wliich obtain in-  the    Slocan,   is   manifest   by   the  statement  which- has  been signed  by  thirty-four  of  the men   themselves.    In their statement the men  denounce the action of J. Roderick  Robertson   "for  bringing  them   to  " the Slocan under absolutely false  " and misleading statements." Their,  statement   is   that    J.     Roderick  Robertson, or his agent A. M. Beat-  ty, represented to them "that there  " was absolutely no  labor trouble  " or strike existing in the  Slocan,  " and.-that the management of the  '"Enterprise mine and its employ-  " cos were in harniony and perfect  "accord;  that  the  standard   and  "prevailing rate of .wages was $3  " per  day."'     Of   the    forty-three  men who were imported from Vancouver to work in' the Enterprise,  the above statement has been signed by thirty-four.    Their names are  appended:    2V. MeGraun, E.

"   The l~eoi_onii,*-.t has alieady contamlcd that the  mine owners, have been unfairly dealt with, and  ifchtill iiiatiiUvins tint the mining legislation of  la-tsc'!<_o 1 was uneullrd for and discriminated  ���against a class of men i.lio had -iltcady done und  were still doing a "'ast amount of "good In open-  ��� ing up the rcM-incc. of Lhe t-ountry, but it cannot  anil' a%III not eudorbC Hie impoit.ition of foreigner*! to absorb the labor and profit Unit  rightly belongs to bona lldc l.i'ilish'subjceta. In  ease of foicign inwisiou, it would lie llritish subjects the government would luolf to for protection, and not ftii eigncr.-, who, if armed, would in  all [jrobabilily tmu their gnus un the loyal men  'who were lighting for home and country.  Tho   above  is from   the  Nelson  > Economist, a journal which championed   the   cause   of   the   Mine  Owners' Association up to the point  of tho importation of aliens to displace British subjects in the mines.  There is mora  truth  in   the   Eton-  mist's sta.tement.thait tho offending  mine owners will care to admit. The  men    who    are    being    imported  to take the place of Canadian  minors do  not know  what  patriotism  ~" means.   Captain Porresleis thepra"-  vincial constable at Vmir, had this  demonstrated the other  day.    The  Ymir mine,-which wa.*.   floated-by  the   London   A; -British   Columbia  Goldfiolds,  is  being  worked  by a  crew of imported miner.".    Captain  Forrester visited the mine the other  day  for  the purpose  of   securing  volunteers for service in the Transvaal.   There are one hundred and  thirty men ou the Vmir company's  property, and out of the lot captain  Forrester found but one  man   who  wa*.  prepared   to  serve   in   South  Africa.     It  is safe   to  say that it  would   be  impossible   to  find   any  such number of men, in any  place  outside of an alien   worked  mine,  who would make such  a  poor  response to the country's call to arm.1-*.  That there is danger in peopling a  province with such an element, is a  truth which  few  will  attempt  to  deny.   Tin. sooner  the  workingincn  of  Canada iccognize the fact  that the  Laurier  government's   alien   labor  law  is a dead letter the belter it  will be for themselves.     With   the  legislation  itself no  fault  can  be  found.      It    was    very    carefully  framed, and if enforced would give  all t'.ie prole :(iou required :   but it  has never been  sincerely enforced,  for   the  purpose  of  pacifying the  labor  vote  of   Ontario,  and   as  a  measure of retaliation  against  the  Eastern border states, where   Canadians were being  daily  deported  for infringements  of  similar  state  and   federal    enactments.      When  the    management    of   the   Payne  mine     in     the     Slocan      entered  upon its policy of importing Italians  from Seattle, the protection of this  Act was invoked by the  Canadian  miners.      A   commission   was   appointed to enquire into the matter,  but there it ended.    The report of  the commissioner has not yet been  made public, but its gist is beginning to filter through the Eastern  press.    It is -in effect that there was  no violation of the alien labor law  in the importation of the Italians  for the Payne mine.    The miners of  British Columbia will be asked to  believe    that    tho    Italians    from  Seattle made up their minds without   solicitation   of   any   kind,  to  conic to British Columbia and seek  employment at the Payne mine in  a bunch.    So  much  for  the  alien  labor -law's enforcement in British  Columbia.    '  In      Sydney,      Cape  Breton,     a     Montreal      company  is       erecting       a       largo       iron  and steel works.    The company has  stated   that   none   but   Canadians  would be emplo3~ed  on  the  work.  Instead, the  contractors recruited  500  laborers in  Boston.     Of   this  number about :_00 were of Irish descent, and the remainder made up  chiefly   of   Germans  aud   negroes.  They were engaged to work for a  lower rate of wages than Canadians  could be secured for. - There   lias  been great indignation, but not one  word has-been said about Luurior's  alien labor law.     If tho law should  he invoked, the people'of' the  East  will be asl-cd to  believe  that  500  Irish, German and  negro  residents  of   Boston,    without    solicitation,  suddenly decided to go in tt body  to Sydney and look for work.  Buller Made His Guest Go.  Sir Redvers Buller is not a person  who will allow any ordinary considerations to swerve him from what  he thinks is hi**, duty. At a dinner  in his house not long ago, a certain  well-known man was present, and  told an anecdote which was so "off  color" that the ladies were excessively distressed. When dinner  was over sir Redvers rang the bell.  '���Mr. A.'s carriage," he ordered,  when 'the butler appeared. "T do  not expect my brougham so early,"  said i-ir. A., and there was a gleam  of defiance in his eyes. Sir Redvers  did not reply but he took Mr. A. by  tho-aim and-led-him-gently into  the hall. -"It is time for you to go,"  lie said quietly, and his guest weiit.

JOHNNY GRALEY'S DEGREE,  Avai.ox, California, January 2-J.  ��������� ���There wa.s always an element of  uncertainty about the fishing in the  little bay up the island where  the  phantom brig beat  up ancl  down,  and. in  this .uncertainty   lay  one  charm of angling.    If in   luck,  th'.  angler   found   the tall   figure    of  Donovan on  the  beach.     Had  he  i'l fresh  bait?     He  had���smelt;  sardines and flying fish.     Had he seen  any  fish?    He   had;   a school  of  yellowtail  had  that   very minute  filled the  bay.    In  fact,  Donovan  was all ready, and his wide-beamed  boat was just on the sand, eager to  slide into the smooth water.    If the  angler was in bad  hick,  he  would  find   Johnny   Graley   in  sole  possession ; and the chances were that  he was beginning  or  ending  some  celebration ; in wliich event, arrayed  in his best clothes,  Mr.. Graley  repudiated the fishing interest.  But we were in luck. As_ the  launch ran. into the bay it. met  Donovan rowing out, disengaged,  and all wo had to do was to step  into his boat with our rods and  reels anil luncheon, and presently  we were pulling* toward'Ship Rock.  "I'm a great believer in luck," remarked Donovan, looking on an exceptionally large Hying fisli and  straightening out the bronze wire  leader. "I said to meself this morn-  iu', Til go outfor luck'; and its like  findin' $3 to jjick up you gentlemen  off the rock."  "You ought to have good'lnck all  the time," said one of the fishermen,  as lie unreeled his delicate line; no  rivals in business." *    '  "None but Johnny Graley aud  -j Iton.auaklo, and he's o-_'<*Iih1�� the  times replied Donovan, "but Gialev  gets hi"- share. He don't get left,  but he gets what's left; he tells the  people lie's the rale thing and that  I'nrhis understudy. Yes, that's the  very word lie uses. He nevor said  it to me face, and I've never token  exception to it, or made up me mind  whether its offensive or inoffensive,  and, after all, it's a question of in-*  tinfcion. D'ye mind the young Irishman who went through the cathedral of Notre Dame? ITe was  taken all around by an old friend,  Father McManu, and never said a  word. When they were goin' out  Father McMann says: 'Well, Pat,  what d'ye think of it?' 'It bates  the divil,' says Pat. 'That's the intuition,' says Father McMann, So,"  continued Donovan, "it may be  Johnny Graley's iiilintion to quarc  my luck; but lie's that pompious in  his way that I'm not sure but what  ho thinks he's payin' me a conipli-  nient In callin' me_ his .understudy:  He's an astute man, is Graley."  "He's certainly 'over-reaching you  iu the matter of cards;'' said the  fisherman, taking one out of a pocket of Iii*. jacket and passing it to  Donovan.  ;   "Johnny Graley, B. A., Pioneer  . Oarsman, and Guide,"  read Donovan.  "That is "what  is being distributed down at Avalon," said the fish-  (-iinnti,  giving  the   butt to a fish,  - tliatbeht the blender rod and made  the reel shriek and scream.  "Ah! he's a beauty," cried Donovan, grasping the gait as tlio fish  rose to the surface twenty feet  away and made a blaze on the blue  waters. Down it -went, then up;  now circling around the boat and  coming slowly in, to the angler's  hook, the-hummingbird of the sea,  the bonito; now away with forty or  fifty feet of line; now running in  the thread-like line cutting the  water like a knife, fighting every  turn of the reel to tlio very finish.  " You're, a jewel," cried Donovan,  as he deftly thrust a small gaff beneath it and lifted the resplendent  creature into the boat; a hummingbird indeed. "Twelve pounds', sir,  and he never sulked a foot," and  Donovan rebaited the hook and  tossed it over.  ''Is Johnny Graley a 13. A.?" asked  the angler, overhauling his line foot  by foot.  "Well," said Donovan, taking  up the oars again and settling into  a long, quiet swing, "he's a bachelor, and he's that artful that he  keeps alive; but he's not educated  at all; it's his natural wit. Hut he  came by the B. A. all right; it's ho  take the stern  take the bow  with a laugh,  it   out   was  he  degree; he's paid to use it."  "Paid?" repeated the angler.  "Yes, he's regularly hired.    It's a  long  story.    You  remember Tony  Romanaldo's mother, the old woman  that lived at  Empire?   Well,  wan  summer   she   came   up   here   and  camped, and brought .a cow, a good  thing to see when you've been livin'  on condensed  milk   for ten  years.  But not a drop of milk did   we get,  divil a drop; and when Johnny approached the old woman, she  says,  'Mister  Graley, if you  want   milk  why don't invist in a  cow?'    -With  that a great white light  crept into  his head and Graley says, 'All right,  Til  buy   one-half   interest   in  the  cow.'     If   there's    one    weakness  Johnny has, it's   for   the  sex, and  he's that polite that -it's  good he's  off on an island away from women,  and that's, where  Mrs.; Romanaldo  nailed him.    'All right,'   says   she,  'I'll sell   you ..half interest;    what  half'll ye take?'    'Take your choice,  marm,' says  Grayley,  overreachin'  himself and thinkin' it was jest the  politeness   of     the   old    creature.  "Well, you're very  polite, Mr. Gra-  lev,' saj's  she; I'll  sheets.'    'And   I'll  hid,' says   Johnny  The way I  found  came over and borrowed $20 of me,  and to secure me  he  got   a  bill of  sale, which  read   this  way:    'Sold  to Mr. Johnny Graley thcTbow hid  of me cow for $20.'    On the back of  this he wrote a note for $20,interest  to be paid in milk at 7 per cent per  week.  '"Can you milk, Johnny?' said I.  'I belave I can,' says he; 'I've ob-  sarved the operation and it's much  like pumpin' out a lakiu' boat.  But that's no impidiment; the old  woman's to milk and see to the  cow.' That seemed satisfactory, so  I gave him the coin anil says, Mf  ye're out- tonight, jest bring me  down a sup, that interest in a cup.'  'I will,' he ."ays, and, Donovan,'  says he, 'have ye any of that .old  whiskey?' '1 have,' says I. 'Well,'  wiys he, 'it's many a day since I've  had a milk punch: we'll have it tonight.'  "Along about' 0 o'clock I heard  him comin' and in a minute in he  walked an'set down with never a  word and no milk. 'Are. ye sick?'  said I. 'No,-only slightly duray,*  says he, 'Let me see the cow bill  ,o'f fsale,' says he. I pulled it out and  'he looked at it for a long time, and*  finally he said, 'Donovan I've been  decaved, and by a woman.' 'Aud  me twenty dollar,*?' says I. 'She  has it,' .**.ays he. ' 'Listen. Ye know  the full particulars of the transaction. When 1 went there tonight  with me pail she says, "What can  I do for ye, Mr. Graley?'* '1 come  for me milk," says !. "Sure ye're  jokin'," says she. "Jokin'," says Tt  "Didn't I give ye 5'our pick aud ye  chose the bow hid of the cow?" says  she. [ was struck dumb, Donovan,  by the eonvincoinent of her argy-  mint: I never said a word. "The  milk ind is mine by your choosin',  Mr. Graley," says, she, "and the  Jieud hid is yours by_your-choosin',  and [ hope that ye'll attind to the  feedin'. , The mouth i.s on your  possessions, Mr. Graley, and I'd  like ye to sind round some alfalfa  tonight.'"  " 'And what did ye do?' I asked  Graley. T walked ofT,* -says ho.  Well, to make a, long story short,  that old woman! got all the milk.  But one dtiy a lawyer came ftshiti'  with Johnny and heard the story,  and .Johnny gave him such a day's  fishin' that he was ready.Lo do anything. They caught sixty yellow-  tails in one day, and; when they  came to settle up Johnny says: Til  call it square if ye go up and see  tho old woman and*settle the" case';  so he did. He was one of these big  blushterin' kind of chap-, and he  witlks up with a bundle of papers  and nearly scared the life out of the  old woman; said he would have to  take her to Los Angeles as a witness, and the cow as a witness, and  that it would go hard with her.  She was willing to give back the  $20, but she had spent it; so the  lawyer made her sign another contract that Johnny suggested on a  pointer I gave him. '2Iy client,'  says he, will be satisfied with the  starboard side of the cow, each  party to contribute to the support  of his half. So in that way they  settled it; but the trouble didn't  end there. Down came Johnny  Graley that night, and he looked as  though he had been in a fight.  'Donovan,' said lie, 'how in the  divil's name did ye come .to select  the starboard side of the cow ? It's  the port Side that, the miikin's done  on.'   'Is that so?' says  I.   'It is,'  man. of   your gineral -inquiration  didn't ; know  it.    I started  in   to:  milk'the cow,' says he, 'an' the cow  lep'   over   me   luetic., and  the old  witch said that if I got on her side  she'd sue me ��or trespass.    But the  lawyer was *��hi're, and between yon  and me, he'd istayed there: to see it  out, and thoy fixed it-up so that  after a while,:Jbhnny got his  milk.  When , the   lawyer   left   he   said:  'Johnny,  I'll'spud  ye some   cards  when I go back and I'll not  charge  ye a cent if ye'll use them.'   'I will,'  says  Graley;  and  by-and-by  they  come, and that's  wan,'  said  Donovan.     "1   said  to  Johnny  meself:  'Johnny,   ye've   taken  no degree.'  'Haven't  1?'  says . he.    Who  holds  the record for the biggest catch of  yellowtails in a day?"   .Well,  says  I, 'ye do, of course.'    'Then what  more do ye want ?' says he, holding  out the card���'Johnny Grales, Boss  Angler.'"  KITCHENER A MAN OF THE HOUR.  ..Washington Post.  The   writer    first   saw    general  Kitchener at Cairo in 18S4.    He was  on   the    A'eranda   of : Shepheard's  world-famed hostelry, sitting with  Chaillie-Long on the one hand, arid  on the other was a man who was  out there for a great London daily,  the most renowned special: correspondent living, of those who have  written of:war.    A: man strode up  the steps.   He was about- six .feet  four, built for strength and a quick,  sudden crisis, when one..-must be as  active as a cat.    He was wearing  the uniform of a bey or colonel of  Egyptian cavalry.    Ashe came forward, Chaillie-Long,  a lieutenant-  colonel,  and  chief of artillery for  the  Egyptian army, presented us.  Kitchener was then about thirty-  two .years old.    His face was that  -of a man who-.neithcr asks for sympathy nor wants it; one who will  win to the front, no matter what is  in his way.    He has steady, blue-  gray, passionless eyes, and a heavy  moustache   covers a   mouth that  shuts  close and  firm  like a wolf  trap.    He has avoh over the native  fighting man of tho Soudan because  he shows not the shadow of -fear;  because hand and brain work so  perfectly together.    He has no age  but prime of life, -and in the fifteen  years he lias spent in* the Soudan  he has gathered and garnered aripe  harvest of experience that has made  general, Kitchener one of the' most  notable men of tho century.  He has astonished Archie Hunter,  his next in command, in many ways,  but never more than when he found  his' chief superior speaking to  Egyptian and Berber, to his black  regiments, Bishareeus, laaliens, to  all the lighting emirs'in the countryside for two thousand miles, ami  speaking fluently to each in his own  tongue. "Where could the sirdar  (general) haA'e learned these tongues?" asked general Hunter, commanding the first three of the  brigades, of his crony, Gatacre, Avho  AA'as chief of tiie other division.  "Give it up; ne\*er supposed he  knoAV a aa'oi'cI of Berber till he declined an interpreter and talked  with Wad-El-_Ve;ju__ii (the great  fighting emir of the Soudan) for two  hours, face to face." Some officer  greatly impressed Avith his knowledge of Arabic and the dialects of  the Arab Negroid tribes of the Soudan, asked the sirdar about it. He  got but little satisfaction from his  saturnine chief. "Why, 1 learned  them; had to. 1 Vou-canuot-control-  inen, much less savages, unless you  can speak to them." And that  AA'as all.  That these Soudan Neg'o-Arabs  fairly Avorship this Avondorf.il man  is not surprising. They regard Avar  a*, the only business. in life Avorth  considering. For sixteen years they  haA'e been fighting, fighting. In all  that time, pitted against men .who  firmly* belteA'o if killed in battle  they go straight to paradise, these  blacks that Kitchener and his ofli-,  cers Iuia'o trained have invariably  beeii successful.   Then their pay--  ������BSS'  -ft*.?  Well, rather. We received an entire car,  (1300) of chairs last Tuesday, containing  fancy diners (in suits or otherwise), fancy  rockers in cobbler seat or wood, cheaper  dining chairs finished in golden oak and  cheaper ones still suitable for either dining  room or kitchen. There are a few office tilt-  ers in * the lot. So you can'tstick us on  chairs, either in design, .quantity or price.  D. MGirlhur  0  m  generally -will be of a highly  artistic character.    The flash light bio-  graph photographic pictures of the  St. Glair tunnel, taken from a train  running forty miles  an  hour, is a  noA'elty which the authorities  regard as sure to attract attention.  Scenes from Quebec City, Muskoka,  Montreal and the AVhite Mountains  will also be included in  the  repertoire.   The company will distribute  nearly 1,000,000 artistic advertising  booklets   descriptiA'e  of   Canadian  life and institutions, from every aspect,  printed   in   English,  French  and German.     After the close of  the   great "exposition    the   Grand  Trunk Avill send its biograph and  films on a tour through the principal European cities'.and then to the  American circuits.  theystand at .attention,these black  battalions -look: like : statues". The  English..colonel clicks out a com  maud, in Arabic;-.-.with a .machine-  like: snap the 749 statues of .men  now break into column of companies. Southern born and bred, before he .had seen this, somehoAV the  writer had always associated the  negro Avith something either seivile  or funny, but these fearless blacks  had never been slaves to any race,  and acknowledged ho superiors but  the AA'hites. They honestly believe  that to be Avhite is never to haA'e  knoAvn fear. Theyhave seen many  English officers die by bullet and by  steel, bu t they have never seen. one  of the AA'hite race sIioav fear,..and  their proudest boast is: "We are  like the Englishmen; Ave are never  afraid."  What this bundle of sfeeel Avire  and brains called sirdar Kitchener  Avill do if he lives tAventy-fh'e years  longer is. impossible to predict. lie  is not quite fifty years old. Standing six feet four, straight as a lance,  he sees eA'erything. He is never  tired or surprised; ne\'er taken unawares nor showing hurry; he is  the ideal man for just the conditions he has to deal wifcli. He came  into British affairs in Egypt at the  -right hour and he Avas the. right  .man. Today he is absolutely king  and ruler over one-third, of till  Africa; from the Nile A'allcy and  its tributaries- to the Cape of Good  Hope.

Joseph Martin courted the A'er-  dict of the people of iVanaimo at a  meeting held there on Saturday  night and it AA'as returned in unmis-  takeable* terms to the. effect that so  far as they are concerned, at least,  he is a dead number in the politics'  of the province.

He had to  appeal for a hearing.and it Avas  Avith some difficulty that he was allowed to proceed. He endeavored  to explain his trip by special boat  and train to \~ictoria and his conduct iu the house,-but he only made  matters Avorse for himself. For  three hours he held the platform  down and in all that time he only  got in about one hour's talking.  The audience protested. that Dr.  McKechnie and Ralph Smith be  given a chance to speak, but Fighting Joe Avould not ���������������give .way "to  them. At 11 o'clock, the audience  took the meeting in its oavu hands  and passed a resolution endorsing  the government and condemning  Martin. All but a very few then  quit the hall and Martin Avas left to  talk to empty chairs.  Grand Trunk's Paris- Display.

Chicago, January 23.���A-special  to the Tribune from Galesburg, Illinois, says : William"'Wallace. Patch  died at his residence here Sunday  of pneumonia. He Avas born near  LudloAv, Vermont, October 1-1, 1823.  During the civil Avar he Avas in .the  government service as rail road conductor, running trains in the south,  .and at one time saved general Sherman and: his entire stall' from capture, an act general Sherman neA~er  forgot. At the time Mr. Patch was  in charge of a train running from  Memphis, and general Sherman and  staff Avere on board en route for  Iuka or Corinth. A plot had been  formed to capture. the train. The  engineer AA'as to stop the train .in. a  densely wooded section, apparently  to take Avater for the engine.  The engineer performed his part,  slowing the train to a halt. Immediately A'ollcys AA'ere fired at the  train, Mr. Patch, regardless of the  flying bullets, jumped from the  train, ran forA~*ard to the engine,  mounted it, reA-oh'er in hand, and  gave the engineer the alternative of  death or proceeding. The engineer  sullenly complied and the train  drew away before the rebels could  reach it.  Years afterward general Sherman was addressing a croAvd in  Galesburg. He noticed Mr. Patch  in the crowd and called him to the  stand, as the man avIio had saved  him from capture.  During the Avar Mr. Patch received injuries he carried through  life.

Instead of  leaving the city, as ordered by the  police magistrate ou Saturday,  West lingered in a boarding house.  Finally the proprietor of the boarding house complained, and West  Avas rearrested by chief Jarvis yesterday afternoon. He will come  become the court this morning.  P. C. Green, I\ L. S��� left last  night for Boston, where he will remain a couple of weeks. '  Stephen White, proplietor of the  Nelson hotel, has returned from a  visit to Banff.  C. E. Beasley, secretary of the  Nelson Hockey Club, has received a  letter from the secretary of the  Rossland carnival, inviting the local hockey clubs to participate in  the provincial hockey championship matches to be played there.  The stake will be the silver trophy  and souvenirs for individual members of the winning team. The  juniors are also urged to compete  in a series for similar prizes. It is  altogether likely that Nelson will  be represented.  Thirty-six of the forty-three men  brought to Silverton to work in the  Enterprise mine left yesterday over  the Canadian Pacific railway for  various points, the tickets being  purchased frrim F. Anderson of Nelson. The men took tickets to various points, including the Coast, Calgary and Trail.  At 4.50 yesterday afternoon chief  Thompson sent in a practice alarm  from the Oddfellows' block, to  which the department made a fast  run. The test; was to determine  whether or not the tall buildings  ou Baker street could be scaled by  using the short ladders carried on  the truck. That this -was practicable wasdenaoustrated when the  firemen mounted to the roof of the  three story building without using  the extension ladder. The run was  most satisfactory.  The boom of piles to be driven by  McArthur & Co. at tho C. P. R.  dock did not reach the city ou time.  The contractor who was to deliver  them used a cable' belonging to a  wharf owner up the river, and the  i    Eyesight Tested  If your eyes trouble you in  reading or doing fine work,  especially during these dark  days, you need properly fitting  spectacles ��� we have them.

Accordingly he tied the  boom up to his wharf and refused  to allow the tug Hercules to remove ; it. Later a new cable was  secured and dispatched to the  wharf owner, thereby appeasing  his wrath so that the piles will be  brought down today.  Steamboat men report unusually  heavy weather oh the lake Tuesday  and yesterday. The wind was very  strong and made towing an arduous proposition.  The parties-to the suit of Redely  vs. Jennings, have arrived at a- settlement whereby tho matters at  issue are arranged without further  litigation. The action, as readers  of Tm_ Ti_ii.UNl_ will reinber, in  volved the ownership of the Kimberley townsite, and by the arrangement arrived at Mr, Reddy,  who is a mining broker in Spokane,  secures a share of the property.  Elliot <fc Lennie were for plaintiff.  Rev. R. Frew entertpiued the  choir of St, Paul's church and a  large number of his parishoners  yesterday.  Jack. Chapman, chief of police at  Kaslo, came to Nelson yesterday  with a prisoner named Peterson,  who is in quod for the theft of a  watch. Peterson pleaded guilty before the magistrate at Kaslo, aud  will probably come before judge  Form this "morning for sentence,  James .Kelly was brought before  judge Forin this morning and elected to be'tried by a jury, so that his  ease will come up at the next assize. Application was made for bail  and granted, four securities of $250  each being required. Kelly's friends  produced four signatures to the  bond, but these were not accepted  by the court, so 'that the young  man is still in jail.  Steve Wilson, the stonecutter, is  working on a big block of granite  in his workshop at the rear of the  Tremont hotel. The block is grey  granite, 13 feet long,. 17 inches  broad and 8 inches thick. Mr. Wilson states that it is the largest piece  of stone ever brought into Nelson.  When dressed it will form the doorstep of tho new Madden block.  T. J, Scaulan, who for nearly a  year past has managed the furniture business of D. McArthur & Co.,  has decided to resume the management of his own store on Stanley  street. nMi*. Scanlan is .deservedly  popular and his business venture  should be a success.  Major A. S. Reid, who located at  Silverton before the townsite was  staked, was in Nel.011 this week for  the first time in six years,. The  major is prosperous and has blossomed out'as a full-fledged -mining  man who is willing tojmj~*the going  rate of wages for skilled miners.  A meeting of the carpenters'  union' will be held in the miners'  hall, at the corner of A~ietoria and  Kootenay streets, on Wednesday  evening. A full attendance of the  members is requested.  The quarantine, regulations of  the provincial board of health went  into effect yesterday. These regulations, call for the fumigation of  all mail matter from Spokane.  Sufficient notice-was not given the  Spokane authorities to com ply with  the regulations yesterday and in  consequence no Spokane mail matter came across the boundary line.  A settlement has beeii "raadeln  the suit of'Hanson vs. Hanson,  which is of interest owing to the  fact that the amount in litigation  was $54,000.' Sten' Hanson, the  plaintiff, sued his brother Nils Hanson to recover the sum in question,  which he claimed was the principal  and interest of a bond given to his  Father and assigned by the father  ' to the plaintiff. The defence alleged that the bond was outlawed  in Sweden, and also that it had  been given for au illegal consideration'. Ross & - Herchmer of Fort  Steele were for the plaintiff and  Taylor & Hannington, city, for the  defence,  /��� No. 2 company Rocky Mountain  Rifles parade for drill tonight at  7:30 sharp.

J. Malone,  vice-president; R. McLean, secretary ; T. J. Sims, treasurer ; executive committee; J. Neelands, L. P.  Nelson, P. Tamblyn, R. E. Smith, F.  Simpson and G. Thomas.  John Johnston of Nelson has sold  an eight interest in the Morning  Star claim to Pedro Cherbo aud  James Mannario, both of Kusko-  1100k. The consideration was $900.  The Morning Star is located on  Kokanee creek between the Kokanee  and Berry Blossom properties.  A certificate of.improvement was  issued yesterday on the Patsy mineral claim owned by Albert L. K.'l-  lar of London, England.  The oflicers-eleet for Kootenay  Belle lodge, Canadian Order of Foresters, will be installed on tho  evening of the 31st instant, and a  banquet will take place after the  lodge meeting. The guest of honor  on the occasion will be the high  chief ranger, who is to visit Nelson_  for the purpose* of conducting the  installation ceremonies.  Mrs. Phil Deringer has tho distinction of being the first person to  reach Nelson from Spokane since  the- quarantine regulations were  put in force. She was undergoing  treatment at a Spokane hospital  and wired her husband that she  was about to return. He replied,  warning her to secure the necessary  health certificate from her physician. This she did, and the quarantine ollicers offered no demur to  allowing her to past*, while several  other passengers were detained or  turned back.  Several of the men, who came  from the coast to work in the Enterprise mine, and backed down on  learning of the situation there, are  in the city today. A* Sandon man  is also here advertising for men,  whom, it is presumed, he hopes to  secure for the property in question.  The smallpox preventative campaign presents 110 new features .today. From reports .received, the  officers a long-the border are enforcing the quarantine regulations to  the letter, and so far as can bo  learned no person from Spokane has  reached Nelson, with one exception.  Dr. La Ban, medical health oflieer,  has received a confidential report  from the mayor of Spokane regarding the situation at that point.  Incoming ears and mail bags aro  thoroughly fumigated. Local physicians have an abuudaut supply of  vaccine and are kept busy inoculating citizens.  Ike Wharf Will be a Good One.  ""Yesterday- vhe~ mayor- aiul-the  city engineer consulted captain  Troup, captain Reid, captain  Fraser and captain Angus Campbell on the wharf question. The  steamboatmeirall agreed that the  commerce of Nelson was growing  and that facilities for handling it  at the lowest possible cost should  be provided. Their suggestions  were practical and were noted by  the engineer and will be adopted,  and the chances are that within  ninety .days' Nelson -will have a  wharf at which its water traffic  can be handled expeditiously and  cheaply. As soon as the plans can  be prepared, tenders will be called  for, and actual construction work  should be commenced by the middle  of February.  BUSINESS   MENTION.
