NELSON:  TUESDAY MORFING, FEBRUARY 13,  1900.  PRICE -FIVE  CENTS.  tt.  CITY COUNCIL DECIDES ON  Question of Paving.  Tho cily council met  last  night,  tho members  in attendance being  mayor Houston,  aldermen Arthur,  McKillop,    Morrison,   Wilson   and  Hall.  After preliminary business the  report of the public works committee was submitted us below:  Public "Works Committee's Report.  The public works committee reported, as follows: "After due consideration we do not deem ib advisable to report in favor of the city  accepting the tender of Cannell  Brothers for' macadamizing Baker  .street. Both the city and the, contractor would be required to pur-  j chase a plant, and on completion of  ���the proposed work, the city would  lie in little better position to do  additional work of the same kind  than it is now, while the contractor  would be in a fairly good position  to shut out others competing* for  future work.  The tender Tor furnishing and  setting curbing seems to us to be a  reasonable one, and we recommend  that a contract be entered with  William Shackleton for supplying  aitd setting 1500 feet more or less  of curbing at the price named, that  is $1.10 per lineal foot.  ,We further recommend   that the  council call for tenders for a complete up-to-date road-making plant,  '"'-including a 15-toii steam road roller.  That   tenders  therefor  be  in  not.  ,   later than noon on  February 19th,  and that the successful tenderer be  ��� required to deliver the plant f. o. b.  -Nelson, not later than  April  20th  next, and superintend its successful  operation for thirty days  before it  is recei\ed and paid for by tlio city.  We also  recommend that a force  of   men  bo  at  once   employed  to  break rock in sixes suitable for machine finishing and.  for  road  making.  Alderman Morrison moved the  adoption of the repot c.  A Alderman Arthur considered a  power drill should comprise part of  the plant. He believed such a drill  wouid pay for itself in a few months.  If this wore done tho hard work  could be dispensed with.  Alderman    Hall   supported    the-  idea, but remarked that hand work  could be carried on at various points  to "better advantage than  a  steam  drill.  Alderman 'Ai thur then seconded  alderman Moiri^ouV resolution,  which was? carried, and city eloik  Strachan Was instructed to lake the  necessary steps toward calling for  tenders.  Mayor Houston remarked that  preccnt was an excellent time for  i einoviug stone in stonoboats if  there was any work of this description to be done, such as that at  the coiner of Ward and Silica  stieets, whoie a rough retaining  wall was desirable on the northeast  corner. The rock could be handled  50 per cent cheaper now than, would  bo the ca.so later.   Aldermen Arthur and Hall moved  that tho city engineer make an  estimate of the cost of such woik  and report at next meeting.  money be raised by the issue of debentures for the following purposes :  1. For the building of the wharf.  2. Kor the purchase of a street-  making plant.  We would further recommend  that the debentures, which were  authorized to be issued in December last, namely, $7000 for tho electric light system and $8000 for the  waterworks system, bo not issued ;  but, instead, that authority be  asked to issue debentures for sums  suflicient to cover the total that  may be expended on waterworks  and electric light construction  .accounts during the year, including  the .sums that have already been  expended.ou these accounts.  Alderman' Wilson asked if any  specific sum'was asked for, .in the  report, to which reply was made  that this could not be arrived at  accurately until it was known exactly what sum Was required for the  various essential work.  The mayor remarked that the  matter would rest finally in the  hands of citizens and if they declined to vote the funds, the council would have to struggle along as  best it could with what revenue  was in sight.  Aldermen McKillop and Arthur  moved the adoption of the report  which was carried.  Tenders for tho city wharf work  were opened as follows:  ."���'Vancouver Hardware Company,  drift bolts, nuts, washers, $1000;  washers I.1,- cents per pound; 30  kegs of spikes at $-1.80, $172 ; 3 kegs  5; inch spikes at $4.80; total  $1187,20.  J. A. Honeynian, bolts, delivered  on wharf, $915.  ; Lawrence Hardware Company,  5000 pounds bolts, etc. at $5.50 per  100; drift bolts, 3000 pounds at  $1.10 per 100 ; 302S pounds washers  at $1.75 per 100.  Xelson Saw k Planing Mills, timber and lumber, $3292 50.  J. A. De war, timber and lumber,  $3292.18.  J. A. Say ward, timber and lumber, $32 J 1.10.  Nelson Saw &_ Planing Mills, con-  sti action - material and labor complete, $9500.  W. C. McLean & Co., construction  $3057 00.  D. McArthur k Co., construction,  $3500:  city engineer remarked that the  Crickmay hospital and Mr.Painter's  residence were poorly served owing  to light feed wires. Aldermen Arthur and Bull moved that the clerk  be authorized to make the necessary  change.  C.A. Semlin, provincial secretary,  notified tho council of the appointment of alderman Irvine and J. A.  Kirkpatrick as licence commissioners and E. A. Crease and W. J.Wilson as police commissioners.  By-law No. 02, to levy a road tax,  was introduced for a final reading  and passed. It was signed and  sealed on the spot, as the mayor  said "to avoid any doubt on the  matter in the future."  Alderman McKillop introduced  the fire limits by-law which was  read a first and second times. It  was referred to the next meeting of  council for consideration in committee of the whole.  Alderman Arthur introduced a  licence by-law,which was dealt with  similarly. Copies of the by-laws  were distributed in order that the  members, might become familiar  with their con tents "before the mat.  ter was gone into clause by clause.  Alderman Arthur inquired if the  Tramway company had -been notified to repair, the crossings referred  to at recent meetings as having  been left in bad shape. .The city  engineer replied that tho notification had been served and the company had replied that the matter  would have tlieir attention.  Aldermen Arthur and Wilson  moved that supplies necessary to  make 200 water works connections,  bo ordered by the mayor.  The mayor was authorized to dispose of the damaged drain pipe at  the depot.  The city engineer was instructed  to box in any exposed water pipes/  and the council then adjourned to  Thursday evening.  GREAT BRITAIN INTENDS TO  Stemwinder were both closed down  over a month ago,'and the Montezuma and Standard have little work  done on them. Tho . company was  capitalized for five million dollar?.  ���.Jeorge E. Cox, Toronto, is president, William MeKenzie, vice-president and Dann Man form the directorate, while Hugh Sutherland is  managing director. Inquiries of  the managers of the other big mining companies operating in tho  Boundary district were all answered by their saying that their  properties would not close down.  Tin*j is a hopeful view that the  labor troubles .will not extend here  generally. ?  THE GOVERNMENT BARELY  k Lund, construc-  li neal  Report of Finance Committee.

On motion of alderman Arthur  and McKillop the tenders were referred to a special committee consisting of mayor-Houston and Aldermen IIall and Wilson,  Chief Thompson of the fire department leported having sus  pended driver William Pfeifier for  breach of discipline, and appointed  Aithur Pitchford in his place. lie  also recommended the purchase of  a .set oi' strong lanterns and the  appointment of a fire and water  conimittee._      Aldermen Wilson and Morrison  moved that the suspension and appointment referred to be confirmed,  which was cariied.  Aldermen'Arthur and Hall moved  that chief Thompson be authorized  to purchase twelve lanterns (5f the  pattern ho desired, and sixteen  pairs of lubber boots. This was  aNo carried.  Ward Brothers, representing the  Hartford Insurance Company,  wrote requesting the return of $100  on the ground that tho insurance  tax, for which this sum was paid,  had not been collected from other  com panics doing business here. The  mayor remarked that ho thought  the insurance com panic*, had a club  over the city, and that tho tax only  drove business away from local  ti gents to Coast agents. Aldermen  McKillop .and Wilson moved that  the $100 be returned to Ward Brothers, which was carried.  IL D. Hume, manager of the Hotel Hume, objected to advanced  rates for lighting on the ground  that the light was very poor aud  inefficient, or at least until the me-  tcts could bo installed. Mayor  Houston lcmaiked that the Hume  had been paying on tho scale of a  special figure given them by the  clecti ic light company when the institution was elected. Aldermen  Arthur and Hall moved that the  regular hotel rate be collected from  the II ume.  D. MeFarlane drew attention to  his desire for electric lighting, and  {his elicited the explanation that  the "wire it was proposed to extend  was not heavy enough to carry the  increased current necessary.     The  Increase tiie Army.  LONDON", February 12.���Criticizing  the government's scheme for the  reorganization and increase of the  British army in the house of com-  iiions today, the -Liberal leader, sir  Henry Campbell-Baiinorman, said  he had heard, of the great scheme  for the administration of a great  army, but he had not heard a single  figure mentioned as to the cost  thereof, nor even in regard to the  particular vote.    How much of the  money required was due to the  present war ? To this question. Mr.  Wyndham replied: "Four hundred  and twenty thousand pounds." Sir  Henry Canipbell-Banneriiian said he  could not be expected to pronounce  tin opinion upon the scheme suddenly, but, he added, he believed  that nine-tenths of his hearers were  ready to do almost anything for  the purposes of the present war,  but would like to legard it as a war  measure alone, leaving the question  of the future increase_apd_iear-  f or _ further ~d i s-  MAY SHIP COOPS IN BOND  Through United States.  Washington, .February 12.���The  final week's discussions of the pending financial bill.was begun in the  senate today. The. speakers were  two Republicans, Mr. Elkins of West  Virginia, and Mr. Woleott of Colorado *iud one Populist, Mr. Butler,  North Carolina.;: Mr. Butler closed  the debate for thetlay advocating  the adoption of |his amendment  providiugfor. ah issue of paper currency by the government. ���   ' ���  An important bill was passed  by the house' .today, which makes  universally applicable-the. law. that.,  now permits the transit of goods in  bond.through; certain ports in the  United States. Under it goods in  bond can lie shipped through any  port of the territory' of the United  States or .foreign ports. _It is principally designed to give the transportation companies of the .United  States a share of [the transcontinental trade-;tq-the1 Orient. - The bill  also repeals the Taw of March 1st,  1895, prohibiting the shipment of  goods in bond to the Mexican free  zone. The latter provision was  fought by Mr. Stephens of. Texas.  RUMORS AND OPINIONS OF  open  rangeiueufc"  cussion.  It ".vas explained in the lobbies of  the house of commons that Mr.  Wyndham meant to convey that  all the supplementary estimates  asked for were due to the war, except =��120,000 required for the new  scheme to close the financial year  of March 31st.  . Sir Charles-Duke,advanced Radical member of tho Forest of Dean  division of Gloucester, said Mr.  Wyndham's speech "seemed to support the heresy that Great Britain  should icly upon home defences,  while the truth was that the most  powerful defence lay in the striking  power of the fleet."  Will Close Down.  Greenwood, February 12.-  -The  Times tomorrow will announce the  closing down of work on the Dominion Copper Company's properties in the Gieenwood camp. Frank  Robbins, engineer in charge, said:  "I got instructions fiom the east  to follow the lead of the Kootenay  mines on account of the eight-hour  law, and have consequently closed  down all woik. We have already  paid off 85 employees. 1 cannot  say when we shall reopen."  The Dominion Copper Company  owns iu Greenwood camp the Brooklyn, on which the men employed  were today discharged, andtheRnw-  hide which is being developed by  contract   labor.     The   Idaho  and  , What Ma? Happen.  London, February 13.���The Pie-  toruaaritzburg correspondent of tho  Daily Mail telegrayhing says: *  "Despatch from Eshowe assorts  that a large commando of Boers is  encamped near Ngulu with 80 wagons and nine guns. It is rumored  that this force intends to besiege  , Eshowe. The intention being probably to fortify the Insuzi hills iu  order to prevent the British traversing Zululand to relieve Ladysmith."  Great Britain, according to tho  Berlin correspondent of the Daily  Mail, is placing large orders for  Schwartzkorf torpedoes for the  admiralty. The ��� orders are ostensibly being executed for Italy.  Mr. Spencer Wilkinson, discussing the military situation in the  Morning Post today, refers to a  Cape Town letter, dated January  23rd,-Which- asserts that-   lord  Roberts will allow no movements  until the transport organization is  complete and says:  " It is probable therefore that  transports are now ready and the  arrival of lord Roberts at Modder  river is the signal for action. It is  possible that before the beginning  of his movement he wishes to ascertain from .lord Methuen how matters stand in hih part of the theatre  of war and this would account for a  pause of a few days,  Pro-Boors Turned Down.  London, February 13.���The socialists tried to hold a pro-Boer or  peace meeting last evening- A hostile crowd invaded the hall shouting: "Down with the Boers" and  singing the national anthem. Mr.  Henry Ilindman, the socialistic leader and others attempted to speak,  but they were roughly handled and  scattered. The utmost violence  prevailed and the police were compelled to intervene and to clear the  street in the neighborhood of the  hall.     To Tree   Mrs. Maybrick.  NoiiFOi-iv, Virginia, February  12.���Efforts are again being made  here to secure the freedom of  Florence Maybrick now serving a  life sentence in England for the  murder of her husband James May-  brick.  Escapes Defeat.  Victoria, February 12���[Special  to the Tribune].���Prentice made a  straight bolt  this  afternoon, and  the   absence   of   .James  Dunsmuir  alone saved the government from a  direct defeat.   Iu debating the Coal  Minos Regulation bill. Prentice said  that in his opinion  the  purpose of  this measure is nothing more creditable than the promotion  of litigation between two rival mining companies,    lie  considered  it a  thoroughly bad bill, bad in intention, in  principle and in detail.    He did not  believe it would have any effect if  passed   by   the   legislature,   as   it  would be"declared ultra vires, but  he condemned the attempt to do by  subterfuge  what  the judgment of  the _    privy       council       declared  this     province;    could      not     do  openly, that is forbid tiie. employment of Asiatics.    If it did succeed,  the bill would not drive the Chinese  out  of the   province,   but   simply  from the mines of Comox into the  cities   and   country    generally   to  come into  competition with  white  labor.   He was confident that the  electors of east Lillboet would commend him for voting to let these  fifteen  hundred Chinamen  remain  in Comox rather than have say two  or three hundred of them removed  to Lillooet;  To his mind the only effective  way of dealing with thes problem  would be for all parties to unite to  bring pressure upon tho Dominion  government, who alone have power  to exclude the Chinese.  Prentice moved the adjournment  of the debate for ten days and the  house divided evenly, speaker  Forster then declaring Prentice's  motion lost. The debate continued,  a suggestion thrown across the  house by Higgins that the ministers  should retire for consultation not  receiving attention. Theie is a  night sitting on the bill.  An anui-ving incident occurred  just before the recess. > Ralph  Smith had moved the adjournment  of the debate, when Semlin wont  hurriedly to join him and they had  a whispered consultation, after  which Smith asked permission to  withdraw his resolution. This was  refused, and he had to vote against  it himself. This course and tho  speaker's vote again .saved the government.  Martin's motion respecting Cotton  is on the oiders. He recites that  the minister of finance has been  charged with having falsified the  minutes of the executive council,  that having been left iri charge of  valuable property of one Gordon,  through breach of trust, he con  vol ted the same to his own use, and  was jailed for contempt of eouit in  refusing to disclose what he did  with tho proceeds; that Cotton,  having got into financial difficulties  in Colorado, left that state clandestinely for the purpobP of deceiving  hh~ creditors- and���escaping" from  proceedings; and "Whereas, it is  important that no suspicion of  wrongdoing should attach to the  character of such an official," he  movi-i that tho speaker name a  select committee to inve->tigate  these charges.  of absorbent cotton and a protective bandage. After a few days  the animal is brought back and the  pulp of the vaccine vesicles with  exuding serum is carefully collected  Avith sterilized spoon curettes aiid  placed in sterilized containers filled  with glycerine. The vaccine is examined bacteriologically and physiologically, and filled into sterilized  sealed tubes which have been previously examined. It is thus evident that it is impossible for anyone innoculated with modern vaccine to sufTer any bad result therefrom. "Bad arms," in tho old sense  of the word, are a thing of the past.  LORD ROBERTS  EXPECTED  To Move at Once.  London, February 13.���4:15 a.m.  ���Lord Roberts has gathered 35,000  men with whom, according to the  best military opinion in London, he  purposes turning the left-of. the  Magersfontein lines near Jacobsdale  entering tho Free State, compelling  geueral Cronje to raise the siege of  Kimberley, and thus making his  first step toward Bloemfoutein.  Yesterday lordRobertsannounced  the   appointment   of    general   sir  Henry Colville,  hitherto the commander,    of    the   Guards'     brigade,   "to    the   'command; ��� of     the  ninth division, which' is being formed and will  consist probably to a  ;great   extent   of   colonial; troops.  General Colville will  be  succeeded  by      general      Reginald       Pole-"  Carew.      Lord   Roberts   tells   the  correspondents that  wlieh'he  gets  down to business they shall-have  ample  opportunity to send  news.  His  chief   press   censor  yesterday  issued new rules, and in  future all  written  communications  are to go  unchecked.    Only telegrams will be  censored.    For the next few days  little news is likely to get through,  but later there, will be more freedom.    Thus .says the  censor, and  the last clause may be  interpreted  to mean that something is about to  happen.    ,  ^Kimberley, twenty   miles away  LETTERS FROM THE FRONT  About the Boers.  London, January 30.���Writing  from Frere on January 4th, the  Times correspondent says:  "Despite their activity, the condition of the Boers does not seem  to be  very prosperous.   Tho week  after  the battle, 120 Kaffirs, men,  women and children, who had been  working for the Boers deserted and  came over to us,,many of them being in a starving condition,   Thoy  complain   of getting   neither  food  nor  money   and  above all  of the  loud   lamentations    of    the   Boer  women in camp for tlieir husbands  and relations who had been killed  in the  battle.    All Kaffirs  have a  superstitious   horror".of illness   or  mourning   in    any  .'.form/     They  said   the    Boer    loss     had,   been  heavy,     almost     entirely     owing  to   the    effective   lyddite   in    the  trenches.

The frightful state of things in December cannot have improved mrch, if at ali,  since, and the fighting power of tho  garrison must have been greatly  dimi_iiuhed.

Decision Eeserved.  Cincinnati, February 12.���After  hearing arguments, judge Taft reserved decision in the Kentucky  injunction cases until Wednesday  afternoon.  MODERN   VACCINE.  There o\i-.ts in certain quarters a  rooted dislike to vaccination, partly  ba_.cd on ignorance and partly on  tho results which occasionally  occurred in the earlier days of vaccination. The first need not be discussed, but it may well he pointed  out how modern medical science  ,1ms completely done away with the  t-econd objection. To begin with  the "arm to arm" system of in-  noculatiou which sometimes resulted  in the spread of syphilis and, other  diseases is no longer practiced anywhere, The okl-fa'-hioned "points,"  which frequently were genu infected than sometimes causing ulcerations, inflammations and abscesses,  have also been done away with.  Tho vaccine which has been ordered  by the city, and which is used by  all the local practitioners, is so  made that theie is no possibility of  it com municatiug disease.

The Kitchener  glacier covers part of this claim,  and, some time before leaving for  F.ngland, Ernest Man-sfieid, M.  iituidi's engineer, directed a tunnel  to bo driven under the glacier following one of several high-grade  stringers of ore, which, it was  thought, wore ufMioots of a considerable body of ore. His expectation has been realised. After the  tunnel had been driven a little over  (JO feet a body of high-grade ore  two feet in width was struck. The  walls arc well defined, and a drift  is now being run along tho vein.  This rich strike is considered to  greatly enhance tho valuo of the  property.  -  Leyds Will Go to Russia.

The Negus Impressed.  Paius, February 13.���Le Journal  publishes an interview with count  Leonticff, who f-ays that emperor  Menelik has been considerably  impressed by the British defeats  because tho Abysinuiau". thought  the British invincible. In the  count's   opinion  tlio   negus   would  sent  water or food dining tho entire distance. Our feet were a mass of  blisters and one of the men gave  out about lTt miles from our destination, which necessitated us cariy-  ing him between us for the remainder of the distance. I would add  that this march was made at tho  tail of a herd nf 42 cattle and four  horses. The nic_>, dust and absence  of water, made our condition almost  unbearable."  London, Jfebrnai y 12.���Speaking  of tlte reorganization of the Biitish  army, lord Lau^downc said .theie  were about 170,000 reservists between the ages of 25 and 15 who  had served with the colors, and  whom tho government proposed to  ask to join the army foi a year, for  home service only.  MINE   MANAGERS   REFUSE  To Confer With Mine Workers.  Au adjustment of the existing  differences between the mine manager-, and mine workpi-. has not yet  been effected-, ftf-ccms that while  the mine managers in the Slocan  refused to confer with the mine  wurfcoiH, individual managi-i'-" met  the mine workers as individuals.  The naino workers were willing to  sign an agreement to work for tho  compromise scale for a period of  twelve month* or longer; but tho  "mine manager', were unwilling to  sign any agivem.'iit at all. They  claim that they wciu not acting an  member!- of the .Silvci-Lead Mines  Association, but as individuals.  They said they would not discriminate against union mine workers  and would pay the compromise  scale, but would make no more definite promises. The mine worker.,  say they do not care for recognition  of the union: all they want is an  agreement that will be binding and  lasting for a peiiod that /will be  sufficiently long to place the busi  noss of tho country on a-.table footing. The mine managers, after all  their professions to the contrary do  not appear to want anything other  than the downfall of the Semlin  government and the lesforation to  power of the Dun��muirs. The  executive of the local minei-.' unions  have not adjourned their meeting,  and before thoy adjourn action may  be taken that will result in placing  union men in e\ery mine in tho Nelson and Slocan districts.

WEIR, Men's Outfitter.  ffitie .(Eribmte*  Tub report of the finauce  committee wliich was submitted to the  council last evening  is  an interesting document.     It sots out plainly  just    how the   municipal  finances  stood,and what the present council  had to como and go  upon  during  the current year.    It is satisfactory  to  note  the   increase   which    the  committee estimates in the revenue  for the current year,  and  not  the  least pleasing is the estimate which  the committee shows upon tho corporation's  receipts  from the electric   light   plant.      Although  this  plant has  cost  the  city much less  than   the    waterworks system its  earning     capacity    is   very much  greater,    being  .$20,000 as against  $12,000 for the waterworks.    These  iigures emphasise the advantage of  municipal ownership of the  public  utilities.     The members of the finance committee know within a few  dollars    what   the   city's  revenue  from the elefftric plant will be, and  when they estimateitat $20,000 they  are probably Avell within the mark.  This means that by  its  ownership  of the  electi ic light plant the corporation    will  be  able  this   year,  after deducting the cost  of  maintenance,  to provide the whole sum  necessary  to pay interest and sink-  fund upon the whole  of  the city's  bonded indebtedness.    If the  elec-  trict light plant were owned  by  a  private    corporation,    the   service  would not be as cheap as it is,  and  Nelson would be obliged to raise by'  direct  taxation  over  $15,000 more  1 each   ,year   than    under existing  ������     __> __.  circumstances. *   .  - Tun report of the ii nance committee throws asidejight upon the  methods   of  the  previous   council.  .About the  last act of the council  i  I of 1890 was the issuance of a state-  j    _   ment "which showed an overdraft  at the J3a__k of Montreal of $10.S2D,-  02.    The attempt  was  made, upon  the strength of this statement, to  .    create the impression that this sum  represented the excess of expenditures over receipts.   Nothing could  be more misleading,    if the given  total" were   multiplied by two   it  ���would not represent   the amount  which the previous council expended   over  and  above   its   revenue.  During January the present council  paid, on  account of 1899 exponpi-  tnres,  $7,447.25;   there   is  still  to  be   paid   $3573.10   on   account   of  materials   purchased ;    this, . with  ---���$717.48 of a balance due upon the  waterworks extension,makes a total  so far of $11,737.83  which must be  added to the   given overdraft' to  arrive at the over expenditure,    it  totals up just $22,507.13.  A Handsome Block.  The Madden block at tho corner  of Ward   and   Baker   sticets   occupies- a conspicuous position and i.s  one of tho handsomest brick block:.  in town.     The largo  basement is  occupied by   T,   B.   May's   barber  shop, and on the  ground   floor  arc  three stores.     The front store has  been leased by Kerr k Maher,   who  will shortly start a dry goods business here.    The store is 30 x 07 feet.  The   two   other   stores    front   on  Ward street, and  their diminsions  aro 30 x 22 feet.   One of these was  recently occupied by Montgomery  & Co., and negotiations for the lease  of both these stores are now proceeding.       Upstairs    there  aro  10  rooms, and \)r. Stoddart has rented  the four front ones and  has  fitted  them up very handsomely as dental parloij- and a woik shop.     Tho  appointments of these rooms are  not to  be  surpassed  anywhere  in  the inferior.    Davis & Ward have  opened a law office  in   the block,  and Mrs. Hot ton, a millinery establishment.      Several    of tho other  rooms are already occupied by pri-  "-���i,to narties for residential purposes.  The block was designed by captain  A. E. Hodgins.  the special rates- on pulp wood  shipments to United States points  and the substitution of tho regular  tariff. This move completes the  shutting off of American pulp mills  from the Canadian raw material  supply wliich the recent legislation  tit Quebec, imposing a stum page  tax of $1.00 per cord on all pulp  wood not manufactured in the province, was intended to effect.

The full court'has'uflirmed the  decision of Mr. justice Irving-in the  gambling case of Rcgiiia vs. Petrie,  giving jtulgment against the defendant.  The judgment of chief justice _._...-  Goll is very brief. His lordship do-  linos ti common gambling house according to the code, and refers to  the slight advantage the banker  has in a, game of black jack, and  states that this is just what is forbidden in the code. Tho chief justice concludes his judgment as  follows:  "It was urged that the persons  aimed at are only those who are  bankers by some arrangement outside the game, but 'these'are provided for. by. the-'.clause preceding  the one under discussion. That  clause relates to a house in which a  bank is kept by one or more of the  players exclusive of the others.  The language of the particular  clause in question has not any settled technical meaning nor is it of  any uncertain import, and therefore applying to it the rule applicable to the construction of the code  as stated by lotd llerachell: 'To examine the language of the statute  and ask what.is its natural- meaning,' 1 have no doubt the conviction  ought to be ai.irmed."  Mr. justice Drake's decision,  which is of greater length is as  follows:  "The defendant was com ictcd of  keeping a common gaming house.  Theie is no evidence that the defendant kept the room for gain and  this part of the case %\ as abandoned." The code, by '.action 10(5, sub.  (b), defines a common gaming house  *a& a place kept or used for playing  games of chance, or <���_ mived game  of chance and skill, in which a bank  is kept: or any game played not  alike fa\orab!e to all the players,  aud in wliich a banker manages tho  game.  "The game played in the defendant'', room, to which the public were  admitted indiscriminately, was called black jack.  "From tlio above description  black jack is in my opinion a game  of chance, and the dealer, or manager of the game, i - n banker I'or the  time being. The defendant .idmitte'd  that there was an advantage in  having the deal."  The game of ljlt.ck j.ick is then  deseiibcd in full, and ftom justice  Drake's description black jack is  identical with the well known and  much more "innocent" game of "21  or bust," aud very similar to the  game of baccarat made popular-by  the ptince of Wales. Mr. jir_tir_*  Drake referred to the similarity be-  twoen baccarat and black jack and  continued :  "Baccarat it. declared unlawful in  tho case of Jenks vs. Turpin. In  ljla,ek jack it is true the deaT'iiiay  pass very speedily, but the dealer  while in that position falls within  tho language of the code bearing on  the case.  "Under the code the room Occupied by the defendant becomes a  common gaming house, because it i.s  a place used or kept for playing  therein at a game of mixed chance  or skill, in which tho players stake,  play, or bet against the manager of  the game and in "my opinion the  conviction should be affirmed."  Mr, justice Martin concurs in coii-  firmuig the conviction. .  '  and now lies buried iu the rose garden near the Royal hospital, Dublin, honored in death as in life.  Vonolel recalls, in many ways, the  still more famous Copenhagen, tho  splendid little chestnut which carried tho "Iron Duke" i'or eighteen  hours on the day of Waterloo.  Copenhagen was a spirited thoroughbred from Denmark, who carried his master safely through all  the dangers of tho Peninsular war.  When, his fighting days were over  he was sent to "Strathfieldsaye,"  the duke's beautiful seat in Berkshire, and there he spent his last  years in dignified comfort.  Like his'master, however, lie paid  souk) of the penalties , of fame.  Thousands of his admirers went to  see him in his paddocks, and pestered lil 111 so much with their attentions (which took the unpleasant  form of cutting "locks" from his  mane and tail) that the duke was  compelled to put him in an iron  cage, where his peace was assured.  His funeral, was attended by a large  crowd of his admirers, and an imposing tombstone marks his last  resting place.  An almost equally famous charger, Napoleon's Marengo, which Avas  found wandering riderless on the  field of Waterloo after his master's  flight, ended his days in England.  He came into tho hands of an Eng-.  lish general, who made his last  years of comfort; if not of absolute  luxury.  In the library of the Soldiers'  Home, Virginia, may be seen Stonewall Jackson's famous horse, Sorrel,  looking under his glass case as  spirited and life like as when lie  bore his master through the smoke  and lead-hail of battlefields. Sorrel  took, part in ten of the most terrible  battles of the Civil War, and survived until thirteen years ago,  Avhen he died of extreme old age.  The end of Traveller, general  Robert R. Lee's historic charger  .\ as tragic. " Ti aveller Jiad survived  a scoic of battles from which he had  emerged unscathed ; he had followed his brave master's body to the  giitvo, only to -die a few-months  later from lock-jaw, induced by a  nail which had entered his foot  while peacefully grazing in his paddock.  General Pifc/.hugh Lee's thoroughbred mare, Nellie Gray, the most  beautiful horse in the Confederate  army, fell in the thickest of the  fighting at tho battle of'Winchester ; while general Sheridan's black  wai-hoiso, Ricnzi, survived all the  penis of war until 1S70, and his  body ib mounted in the museum of  Governor's Island, in New York bay.  The favc rite chargeis of general  Giant and Washington snivived to  honored old iige, and died lamented  by many be=ide their masters.  It must not, however, be assumed  that it is the fate of all famous  war-horses to live thus to days of  iclircment and dignity.

To all .-purposes  she is asleep, however. Her breathing is even so light as to be almost  imnotieeable, but by listening to  her left ear one can hear the pulsation of the blood through her body.  She is propped up against the pillows all the time. To lie upon her  back or side seems to cause her unspeakable agony. Smells and hissing noises also distress her.  Last year she was awakened forcibly by the application to her spine  of brushes, the bristles of which  consisted of needles, the points of  which were brought to a white  heat, but this year it was thought  better to let her awaken naturally  if she could, and her mother absolutely refused any artificial means  to bring her to, saying:" God, who  has put her asleep, will awaken her  in His own good time."  Theffamily are French-Canadian  and   well-to-do,  and   her   mother,  father  and  two  other  children, a  young man and woman, are strong  arid   exceptionally   healthy.     The  "sleeping girl" is 21 years  old  and,  though never strong,- has been -very  healthy since she. was about 10; but  always very  religious.    When  she  was five she was troubled with soft1  euing of the bones, and as the doctors did: not seem  to do her any  good her mother took her on pilr  grimages for three successive years  to St. Anne  de  Beaupre down, the  river, the Lourdes of.America.   On  the occasion of the third trip she  was miraculously' cured, and since  that time has never suffered from,  any malady till her first sleep be-  Sau- .

Few horses have beoii more honored and admired than Vonolel, the  beautiful little gray Arab1 wliich  carried lord Robertson the marvellous inarch from Cabul to Candaliar,  and which boie its master so proudly in tho last jubilee procession.  Vonolel came in for a large share-of  the honors distributed at the close  of (he Afghan campaign.  The queen herself gave him the  Cabul medal with four clasps, and  the bronze Gandahar star, which  lord Roberts proudly hung around  his neck; and, later, he received  from the queen the coveted jubilee  medal. He was also made immortal  in the equestrian statue of his master by Mr. Bates, A. It. A.  Vonolel survived his battles and  adulation   for twenty-nine years,  Sleeping her life away, Eva Koch,  the famous French-Canadian "sleeping giil," is watched aiid adored by  hundreds of people daily. They  look upon her as a sort of saint, and  the very fact that the commencement of both her long sleeps came  just before Christmas, in addition  to the fact tluit she always-has led  a most austere life, and that when  she was very young she was relieved from a most severe and pttinful  .illness by our Lady St. Anno _of  Be-inpre, are respon-rtblo'for this,  . Last year, she slept continuously  for twenty-eight days. This year,  she fell as-lcepiagain just as the vesper bells began-to ring on Christmas eve, and remained continuously asleep for fourteen days. - A  hemorrhage awoke lier then. She  called her mother iu an almost inaudible voice, asked for a drink of  cider, and'fell again into a lethargy,  from which she has not awakened  siuce, and from which the doctors  say she will in all probability never  awaken. The doctors for that matter have given her up, aud say they  can do nothing for her. Her internal organs are simply played out,  and she is bound to gradually die,  like a candle which is slowly burning down. They feed her a tea-  spoonful of cold water aud another  of soup every day. and that is all  the sustenance she gets. The priest  visits her frequently, and the last  sacrament of the dead has been  given to her several times.

The" latest news reaching  Mata-  tiele, East Griqualand, from  Btisu-  toland, under  date December 15th,  is  that  the  natives  remain  quiet,  and well disposed to listen  and adhere to the advice given to them by-  sir Godfrey Langden and the magistrates  in the several districts.    At  the same time, it is a matter of common   knowledge   that,  while   the  country is, practically, hermetically  sealed against the entryof FreeSfcate  Boers.aconsiderablenumberofBasu-  'tos passoyer the border into the Free  State, and, it'is said, are engaged in  reaping  the over-ripe crops.    The  Boers also, both  colonial and Free  State, have commandeered several  hundreds of "loose" Kaffirs  to perform this work, not only across the  Orange river, but in colonial districts wliich have earned the unenviable   claim    to    be   disaffected  towaids   the British   government.  However,   this    is    a    proceeding  which cannot very well be stopped,  but thoae venturesome natives who  have wandered afar from the safety  of their kraals have been given emphatically to understand that thoy  do so at their own  risk  and  peril.  This   deliverance comes   not only  from.the, British resident and his  subordinate officials, buib from Lero-  thocli.ahd other chiefs.  I have gleaned a few facts con-;  cerninginternaldissensions.is Basu-  tolaud which, so far as I am aware,  have not hitherto been published  in concrete form, and which may  prove interesting to your readers  at the present time.  The dispute between   Jonathan  and Joel, two of the Basuto chiefs^  is of long standing, and the details  are not without interest.     Molapo  was   succeeded,   on  his  death  by  Jonathan,  but   Molapo's    rightful  heir, according to the native law of  succession,  was ���Motsueni, who has  a   small following of reckless and  lawless Basutos���the scourge of the  country.    Motsueni being  declared  ineligible   for    tiie   chieftainship,  Jonathan      was     formally      appointed   by   Molapo    liis   successor, being' a younger brother of the  first-named.   Thoze was a division  iu the council, however,  many of  tiie   older   men   objecting to   the  elevation of a younger son of Molapo,   and   maintaining   that   the  selection should fall upon Joel,  as  the eldest son of the second wife;  but Molapo adhered to his choice  with   determination   even    when  struggling with the throco of death.  Then   came   the   memorable Gun  War., or tlio Sprigg Disarmament  War, in which  Jonathan, knowing  on which side his broad was buttered,   remained   strictly  loyal to  Bz-itish authority;and, sure enough,  when the hostilities terminated, as  a reward for  his  fidelity, his sue  cession to Molapo was confirmed by  the imperial government, and theie  were murmurs and threats, as of an  angry sea, in the kraals of Joel.    It  should be stated that Joel had sided  with the anti-Sprigg Basutos during  the   Disarmament   war, and with  un filial        ingratitude,       included  amongst his acts of spoliation the  burning down of his own father's  kraal at Leribe.   There was therefore no chance for this unregenerate  son   of Masupha   (by   the   second  wife) and when  the  ground was  parcelled out,   the loyal Jonathan  was given the enjoyment of expansive   acres    amounting   to   many  English counties, while Joel had to  be content with a strip of country  no bigger than Middlesex, and, of  course, not nearly so rich !     Hence  these   tears   and   heart-burnings.  Squabbling has gone on ever since  the unequal but just apportionment  of the vineyard, aud it is alleged  thatJoel, as the discontented and  truculent person in the drama���the  person  with a grievance���has been  listening to the* voice of Free State  charmers, having sezit many flocks  and herds into the republic as a  proof' of-'his confidence. Scandalous  rumor has gone even farther, aud  affirzned that Jonathan has threat-,  ened to invade the Fz-ee State with  the object of 'capturing Joel stock;  and    one   valiant   warrior of  the  O.F.S., named commandant Fick, is  somewhat   curiously mixed  up  in  these    inter-territorial    communications.    Perhaps, the true inwardness of the  negotiations between  Basuto Chiefs and'Republican Boers  will be discovered some day, but in  the meantime Lerothodi, it cannot  be denied, continues to exercise all  his power in favor of neutrality or  quiescence on the part of his nation.  available for dividends is $0,408,687.  After the payment of all dividends  declared, the surplus for the year  carried forward is ,$2,203,84 7.  CHRISTMAS   AT   BELMONT.
