All  the properties surrounding New  Denver can now'have a full supply  of union men at any time. This  applies to the Bosun mine principally. W. II. Sandiford, manager  of' thn Bosun, when informed of  the union'h decision stated that he  ,did not think the local union had  "sufficient men to guarantee  work which he can do. The fourth  is a most unfortunate case. That  of a man who has been ill at the  hospital for some time, and will  probably never regain his health.  Throe of the men are being boarded  at the Homo hotel on Vernon  street, but arrangements will be  made to secure a shack where men  in hard luck can be boarded.  Frank J. Ewing of Spokane is at  the Phair hotel. Dr. Ewing was in  medical charge of the men on the  Robson k Penticton and Bonner's  Ferry roads during construction,  and will fill the same position on  the Balfour extension.

Wariiixi.tox, February 15.���The  senate substitute for the house cur-  loncy bill was passed by the senate  today by a decisive majority of 40  to 20.    Pi ior to the final passage of  the   bill,   amendments   weie   considered under the ten minute rule.  Only two of tho amendments were  adopted :    Viz���One offered by the  finance committee keeping the door  open to international bi-metallism,  and     one . by     Mi'.

The votes taken   on  the vaiious amendments were practically   along   party   lines.       Mr.  Chandler   (Republican)   voted   for  the   bill   amendment,  but against  the bill.    Mr. Call'ery (Democratic),  L. A. Pye and T. L. Lindsay (Democratic, Kentucky) voted against the  committee amendment for the bill.  Mr. Kyle (Silver Democrat) was the  only senator who did not  vote and  was   not  passed.    The   free silver  substitute   offered   by  Mr.   Jones,  leader of the  democratic  side, was  denied by a majority of 19, the vote  being 27 to 4S.  The bill as passed consists of ton  sections., It pro\ idos that the dollar of 25 S 10 grains of gold, nine-  tenth* fine, shall be the standard  unit of value and that all forms of  United States,money shall be maintained at a.paiity with it; and  that the treasury notes and greenbacks sluifl be redeemable in gold.

A pipe line connection  is being made betv.eon (he St. Eugene compressor and the lino leading fiom the Lake Shore compressor, and as soon as the St. Eugene  plant is iu operation the Lake Shore  plant will be dosed down and the  air for all the workings of the mine  will be supplied from the St. Eugene  plant. So soon as the weather will  permit in the .spring the Lake Shore  plant will be moved down and set  up again near the one at the St.  Eugene.  /Consul for Nelson.  Colonel TV. S. Dudley, United  States consul at Vancouver, has appointed William B. Kuiebbs, vice-  consul for the United States at  Nelson. Mr. Kuiebbs, who comes  from Boston, is now on his way  here from the East.  Is the Question.  A deadlock occurred at the city  council last night as a result of the  members' failure to agree as .to the  best method of   constructing   the  new city wharf.   Cne half of the  council, aldermen Hall, Arthur and  Wilson, went ou record as favoring  the acceptance of the lowest tenders, while the remaining members,  aldermen McKillop and  Morrison,  and   mayor   Houston   committed  themselves    to    the    city   building   the    wharf    by    day    labor.  The result of the equal division was  a deadlock,'which will ���,stand, until  the next meeting of the council determines the question  one way or  another.    The  discussion throughout was, however,  perfectly amicable.  The special committee consisting  of mayor Houston, aldermen Wilson   and   Hall, reported that the  committee had disagreed.    The aldermen  recommended  the acceptance of the following tenders :   For  materials���J. A. Say ward, $3244.40;  W. McAdams, piles,  GA   cents  per  lineal   foot;    construction    $3500;  nails, bolts, etc., .1. Lawrence, $894.  On the other hand mayor Houston,  the third  member of the   special  committee, presented a minority report, recommending  tnat  the cily  do the work  by day labor.     His  reasons were as follows:   There are  two points to be considered in doing    public    work.      First,   cost ;  seeond, quality of the  work.    The  experience of the city has been that  there is little difference in the cost,  but that there is considerable difference iu the quality of the work.  In building a  wharf,  the  cost  of  which will be largely for material  and labor and little  for  plant, the  city should  be   able   to   purchase  everything in the way of materials  at the minimum price,' and  should  be able to secure as  efficient labor  as any contractor.    This being so,  there is  no good reason why the  work when completed should not  be of first-class quality.   I believe  that there is, a margin  of $l000in  favor of the city doingr the work by  day's labor and purchasing the material needed in the open market.  I maintain that this is a fair margin  to work on and if'the city stands a  show to save $1000 iu the construction of the wharf, the council should  take the chance. c  Even if no saving  could be .made, the city will not be  called upou to settle vexatious disputes between two sets of contractors, the one for the delivery of material and the other for construction,  and if it is deemed best to make  any change in the plans there can  be   no question of  extra charges  which there surely would be were  tho work done by contract."  Alderman Hall thought mayor  Houston had figured to��� closely on  the matter. Captain,,Troup had  approved of the course recommended by the majority and his  experience hi building wharves for  the C. P-ll,-had weight��� The~sup-  ervisioii would be under the same  man, and the profits if any, would  be distributed to four men. The  fact should be considered, also, that  the city had committed itself in a  sense to accept some one of the  tenders, and if they proceeded to  do tho work by another method  they might not be able to secure  tenders on a future occasion.  Alderman Morrison recommended  the minority report, as even if the  wharf cost just as much the funds  would bo distributed among the  men who furnished the money in  tho shape of taxes.  Aldermen Hall and Wilson moved  the adoption of the .majority's report be carried. The movers and  alderman Arthur Aroted for the resolution and the remainder of the  council voted to the contrary, on  wliich the resolution was declared  lost.  Aldermen Morrison and McKillop  then moved the adoption of the  minority repoit, which was also  lost.  This left the matter in statu quo,  but as anolher meetiug takes place  on Monday night the deadlock will  probably be broken then.  The boaid went into committee  of the whole on bylaw No. 63, a bylaw to regulate the erection of  buildings, the prevention of fires  and the stringing of wires. Alderman Morrison took the ehair, and  proceeded to read the clauses of the  proposed bylaw.  The fire limits described iu the  new bylaws are the same as obtained under the old law, viz: From  the corner of Vernon and Hull, west  on  Vernon   to   Kootenay,  thence  - southerly'on Kootenay to Victoria  street, theiuKr'easterly ou Victoria  to Hall and northerly along Hall to  the point of beginning, the centre  line of the street being the limit  throughout. ���  The council spent two hours in  discussing 17 out of the 30 clauses  contained in the bylaw, after which  the committee of the whole rose  and reported-progress. The balance  of the bylaw will be gone over at  the next meeting.  F. W. Peters,  president of the  tramway company, and M. C. Carey,  the company's electrician', appeared  before the council in the matter of  supplying citizens-with electric current for powe_?;piirppses.    On being  requested to address the council,  Mr.'Peters stated .that  he  was not  prepared  at this juncture  to give  figures, but could inform the aldermen  that the 'tramway   company  had concluded arrangements with  the West Kootenay   Power Company to have tho exclusive right to  sell electrical power in Nelson. They  had taken the sub-station off the  power   company's   hands   and   he  could see no reason why the tramway company could not sell eurrent  for power and lighting to the city  at as low a rate as the corporation  was.now paying. , There were two  methods of supplying this power,  first by delivei ing it direct  to  the  city's power house, and, second, by  delivering it by a primary wire to  vaiious   points.     The  first would  necessitate the  city's installing' a  motor    and     the-   second   would  require the stringing of wires aud  the    purchase - of     transformers  to reduce the voltage.    If the council thought of considering the matter he would be in a position to  give  figures and submit his  company's offer.  Mayor Houston remarked that he  did not believe  the  city contemplated any arrangement with anyone for furnishing light,  but there  were people who claimed that, they  could not get along without electrical power.   The 'only question before   the   council, _ therefore,    was  should  they consider the offer to  sell power to citizens, through the  city.   If   the   city p^onld." require  power at any future date -it would  necessitate a separate aud  distinct  arrangement, and had nothing to  do with furnishing  po.ver to private parties.   The special committee drafted to enquire into the matter had to report that the city had  no power to dispose  of.    He did  not believe the city had  any desire  to make money out of this matter,  but the corporation should exercise  control as a safeguard to its interests.    The question of a rate was  mooted, but finally left to the next  session   of   the   board,   when   Mr.  Peters   will   present    figures   and  rate-,.  On motion of aldermen Arthur  and McKillop, the city engineer was  authorized to proceed with the  erection of a retaining wall at the  corner of Ward and Silica streets  at a cost of $300.  An impromptu discussion ensued  regarding the city lighting, and  the suggestioirwas made that~some  concessions be made until meters  were installed. On motion of aldermen Arthur and AVilson, the mayor  was authoiized to adjust the rates  in ease of an objection on the part  of any consumer.  THE CURLERS FROM NELSON  Are Still Ahead.  Rossland, February 15��� [Special  to tho Tribune]���The curling game  continued all day and up to 12  o'clock tonight. There were no  finals in any of the contests.

The marquis of Salisbury, the  premier, in the course of his reply  for the government, said: "I canuot-  enter upon the spring that guides  the Russian government or the  course it is taking, nor can I discuss  the health of the Ameer of Afghanistan. . .  "As'to whether our forces are  -adequate to the work in South  Africa or whether it is true that  the government has always been  too late aiid has neglected opportunities, I would gladly accept a challenge provided the words would  not get beyond this chamber. The  present troubles are not due to the  expansion of tho empire, but to  miscalculations made in 1881 and  1884.  "Our forefathers were not discouraged by beginnings and we  should follow their example and  not be east down. Tiie government  is convinced now, as they always  have been, that the issue will be  brought to a successful conclusion.  1 do not think any advantage is to  be obtained'from taking a gloomy  view."

Victoria, February 15.���[Special  to the Tribune].���Martin's fireworks  respecting Cotton's supposed delin-  quiencies proved a complete fizzle.  In the legislature this afternoon he  formulated his charges, but brought  out no further facts whatever in  substantiation of them, while Cotton, who followed, made a complete  answer.

LEADERS OF THE EMPIRE  New Canadian Air Line.  Detroit, February 15. -John M.  Nicoll has admitted that ho is tho  projector of the Quebec k Lake  Huron railway, the proposed new  air line between Georgian Bay and  Atlantic tidewater. Mr. Nicoll  said: "The line would run about  401 miles iu a .straight line through  a new and unsettled portion of  Canada, and would shorten the  grain haul from Chicago and Duluth  to the seaboard by fully 500 miles.  The rail route would be about the  same length as that from Buffalo  to New York, saving all the lake  distance between Georgian Bay and  Buffalo.    ______   A Youthful Assassin.  MiDDM-SBO-io, Kentucky, February 15. -John Lewis Howard, 15  years old, this afternoon on his  deathbed confessed that he had  murdered his own father with the  aid of his mother. About five  years ago Thomas Howard, a prominent lumberman of Bell county,  was assassinated, a bullet being  fired through a window of his  house while he was eating. His son  now confesses to firing the bullet.  He says his mother, Mrs. Amanda  Howard, arranged the table so that  his father wonld sit with his back  to the window. Mrs. Howard has  been arrested. Her preliminary  trial will be held tomorrow.  Speak on the Crisis.  London, February 15.--In the  house of lords the earl of DunVaven  raised a question on the government's military proposals and expressed a doubt as to whether  these were sufficient. The earl of  Rosebery said he fully recognized  the giavifcy* of the situation and  agreed with the previous speaker  in thinking that the measures  adopted were inadequate in the circumstances. He also doubted  force of  v. hether the paper force of 409,000  men in Groat Britain to which the  secretary Of state for war had referred would stand analysis. For  the volunteers lord Rosebery said  he had the highest respect, but by  no stretch of the imagination could  they be called holdiers, as it was admitted they needed months of  training annually to render them  efficient.  "The crisis in South Africa is  urgent," continued lord Hosebery,  but wo must not keep our eyes upon  South Africa alone. Last December  the government made vigorous  overtures to two groat powers, Germany and tho United States for an  alliance, but these overtures were  not received with such cordiality as  to encourage the government to  pursue them. It does not appear  that the friendship of France, would  bear any great strain and as to  Russia, even that has been recently  witnessed in Persia about which  England formorly would have something to say, but which now she  passes unnoticed.  "It becomes the government to  take a more firm grasp of the situation aud to make adequate proposals. If Grout Britain were to  lose South Africa she would lose  the most important base outside of  the United Kingdom and she would  lose that colonial support which has  been given because the colonies  have believed that they were associating themselves with a powerful  empire, and thus the empire would  break away from us. If this bo not  a life and death crisis I do not know  what is."  The earl of Kimberley, the Liberal leader, said he fell the danger  Creditors,  As to the charges of falsification  of records, all his colleagues in the  executive were his witnesses against  Martin's charges. He characterized  this attack as a dastardly use of  the protection afforded Martin by  the privileges of the house. So  complete was Cotton's answer that  Turner, Pooley, McPhillips, and  other leading members of the opposition declared that there appeared  to be no occasion for the committee  asked for; and only seven votes,  were recorded for Martin's motion.  The house has adjourned until  Monday without explanation, and  the wish is father to the thought  with the opposition that Semlin  may contemplate resignation or rearrangement in the meantime.  Did Chickering Suicide?  3VATKRTOWX, N. V,, February 15.  ���The relatives and friends of the  late congressman Charles A. Chiek-  ei ing of Copenhagen, who was found  dead on the sidewalk in front of the  Grand Union hotel, New York, on  Tuesday morning, are of opinion  that he did not commit suicide.  Foul play is suspected and an investigation will be made.  Nkw York, February 15.��� Captain McChiskey, of the New York  City Detective Bureau, ridicules  the idea of foul play in connection  with the death of congressman  Chickering, who was found dead  outside of the Grand Union hotel in  this city on-Monday, lie says that  no report of any suspicious circumstances was made to him in regard  to the death, and the police who  handled the case found nothing on  which to base such a belief. The  congressman's watch and money  nnd private papers were found on  his body. The police at headquarter^ say there is absolutely nothing  in the cireunibtanees of the death  to indicate that the congressman  was a victim of foul play.  Tuberculosis Report,  A Mian v, Newr York, February  15.-The annual report of the state  board of health was today submitted to the legislature. It say.s iu  part: "Since January 1st, J SOU,  5.'_24 head of cattle were tuberculide tested under the supervision of  tho tuberculosis committeoe of the  board of which 577 were condemned  and 213 destroyed. Because of the  small appropriation made the tuberculosis committee has been unable to adopt and enforce a systematic examination of the herds of  the state."  Mrs. Hanna's FatalEide.  A fatal accident took place Wednesday evening on the Hall Mines  wagon road by which Mrs. Hanna.  wife of a former employee of the  Hall Mines Company lost her life.  The victim, of the accident was  on her way to Nelson, and was rid-  : ing on a load of furniture hauled by  a team, driven by William Ragless.  While crossing the Esperenza, mineral claim the sleigh runners cut  under on one side, and the entire  outfit was thrown over. Ragless  the drivbr wa.s buried in the snow  but managed to work his way out.  He was unable to find his passenger, however, and not having sufficient strength to right the sleigh  and ascertain whether she was under it, he did the next best thing  and called loudly for help.  The cries were heard by Edward  Stanley and Albert Gerrard, who  were working on the Esperenza,  and they made all haste to the  scene of the accident. The sleigh  was then turned over, and underneath it, partly buried in the snow  the body of Mrs. Hanna was discovered. The rescuers were unable to  tell whether the woman was  dead or merely unconscious, but  thoy did everything that could bo  done. The body was removed to  the Esperenza cabin, and one of the  men started on a four-mile run to  Nelson for medical assistance.  Dr. Arthur was notified of the  accident about 8 o'clock, and securing a horse started back up tho  road as fast as it could take him.  When he arrived he pronounced life  as extinct. He did not make a  minute examination of the body,  but expressed the opinion that the  victim was dead when taken from  thoisnow, death being in his opinion due to suffocation. Dr. Arthur  does not consider an inquest necessary, the accident being such as  might happen to any teamster.coining down the road under the sumu  circumstances.  The deceased was  the \. ife of J.  W. Haunn, who has been in charge  of the tramway at the Silver King  mine for the past four years. _ She  was 21 years of age, leaves no'family and came to Nelson from  Cold  Springs, Minnesota, where her father  and stepfather reside.     Mr. Hanna  was not apprised of his terrible loss  until some  hours  after it had  occurred.* Husband and wife were lo  have gone east .-hortly on a trip.  The   body was brought down  to  Nelson yesterday and turned  over  to I). McArthur k Company to be  embalmed.     The   icumins will  be  taken to Cold Springs on Saturday  via C. P. It. for interment.  . The   sad   fatality    has    excited ,  widespread .sympathy, particularly  among   the   Silver  King  men,  by  Avhom  the  beieaved  husband ami  deceased  lady were held   in'high  esteem. ~~  Fancy Dress Carnival.

Tin. resolution offered by Joseph  Martin, upon the matter of redistribution, has c.'dlcd  forth an  intimation from premier Seinlin to the  effect   that  the    government will  present a measure of redistribution  to the legislature during the present session.    In this event it is  altogether likely that the final test of  strength between  the government  and opposition parties will be made  upon    this   measure.    Throughout  the whole of his campaign against  his former colleagues, the ex-attorney-general has protested that he  would support any fair measure o'f  redistribution    which  the government might lay before the legisla-  tui'J.     His is,  therefore,  probably  the  only, vote  which   will  be   influenced after the expected redisti i-  bution bill is submitted.    In undertaking any such measure, however,  the government will have to count  both Martin and Prentice as against  it,  aud in doing this the measure  will  require to meet with the approval  of every other member  of  the government paity in order to  pass its second leading.    By some  ib   is    contended that   a  measure  formed  to please so many judges  must be weak.    It may be ; but it is  s tfe   to  say that it   will  not be  vicious.    There is more to b _ feared   from redistribution   measures  framed    by   governments    strong  enough to lose one or two followers  than  from similar  measures by  a  government so circumstanced that  it cannot afford to lose a vote.   This  was made plain dm ing the la&t session of the legis'atu e controlled by  -    .the Turner government, when the  attempt was made to withhold the  present Slocan seat.   And in view  of th's, it is odd to hear ex-premier  Turner protestagainst any measure  of redistribution by the Semlin government  on the. ground that it is  not strong,enough to be just.    It is  safe to hay that any redistribution  measure which'the present government may introduce will, be an ini-  "provement u]doh the present allotment of representation.     It   may  not be   as sweeping as   could   be  desired, but if it remedies but half  of the inequalities something /nil!  be gained, and a step gained in such  matters is seldom lost.    Politicians  who strive to retain pocket boroughs  seldom have the temerity to create  .them again  after they have  been  once swept out of existence.  Ureal    Joiis    Maoix>~na7.T7 "has"  taken a decided stand in tho piov-  ince of Manitoba upon the question  of grantingboi-i-bca toiailway companies.    While lie is at the head Of  provincial alTair.s he promises that  no moie bonuses v.ill be given to  c   any railway  company.     In  doing  this,    premier    Macdonald   is    but  cairying out tho piogramme which  he advocated throughout the campaign, and the fact that he and his  party were   returned   is   suHicient  evidence that the majority of the  people of Manitoba aro in favor of  it.    It is doubtful if any practice is  open   to more  abiifo than that  of  bouusing railway projects.   Theoretically it becomes a part of a government's policy lo as^-sist development  roads.    In practice it Avorks  o it that every tailroacl enterprise  is bonused, and not infrequently it  happens that the aim of tho government is wholly defeated by the  absorption by pi omoters. of the assistance   which   it was   intended  .should contribute toward the cost  of railway consti notion.    Probably  no  province in   the Dominion  lias  Buffered more in this respect than  British Columbia.   The most glaring instance ififumi'-iied in the case  of the British ^Columbia Southern  grant.    To secure tho constiuetion  of what is known as the Crow's Ne��t  Pass road  the province of British  Columbia  give the   valuable coal  measures now owned by the Crow's  Nest Pass Coal Company.    But valuable as this concession was it did  not  contribute in the least to the  cost of the road's construction.   The  coal measures-became the property  of a private  corporation, and the  railway  end    of  the  project   was  turned over to the Canadian Pacific  Railway  Company, which  in turn  received a further subsidy from the  Dominion government for performing" what  the  province  of British  Columbia   had    already    paid  the  original promoters for doing.   There  is another objection to subsidizing  railway enterprises.    Subsidies are  secured  under provincial charters,  and iu return  for the subsidy the  legislature imposes  certain  conditions  upon    the  companies.     The  subsidies are secured,  and  then a  Dominion  charter,  which   relieves  the  stated-aided  roads  from complying with the conditions attached  to  the    grant.     These    difficulties  have  also presented themselves in  British   Columbia,  and  it  appears  that the province is helpless.    The  remedy lies in following the lead of  Manitoba and granting no further  aid to railways whatever.  The action of the miners' unions  of the Slocan yesteiday, in deciding  to accept the compiomiso offer of  the mine owner.0, .will be generally  commended. The compromise scale  just splits  the difference  between  HUDSON'S BAY  COMPANY.  TOHN CHOI-l.lTOlI & CO.-Front street, Nel-  "    son, whole-ale grocers.   COAL.

PATTON & ENMAN  were  smelter   yesterday    to    Newark,  New  .Jersey.    It is understood this i.s tho  last shipment from the smelter.  The local hardware men state  that the demand for traps is quite  lively during the past few days. A  number of trappers are Avorking  within a comparatively short distance from the city, and it was understood that they are reaping an  excellent harvest of pelts.  Perry Fleming of the Columbia  & Kootenay steamship staff returns to his desk iu captain  Troup's oflicc today, after being  confined to the hospital for some  time with tonsilitis.  The members of Nelson lodge No.  25, K. of P., intend holding an anniversary banquet within the next  two weeks. On Monday next their  order will be just thirty-seven years  old, and its progress has been so  satisfactory that the local members  intend to mai k the 37th anniversary in fitting style. The local  lodge already numbers 105 members  and at Tuesday evening's meeting  several new members will be initiated.  Paul Johnson, general manager in  British Columbia of the Copper  Company's smelting works at  Greenwood, anived in Nelson yesterday fiom -the East. He was in  Toronto when the word came of the  suspension of shipments from the  War Eagle and stocks began to  tumble. He says the feeling is very  stiong on the stock exchange and  the probabilities are that War  Eagle's will be struck off the list.  Mr. Johnson superintended the construction of the Hall Mines smelter,  and afterwards operated it for  some time. "He spent the day in renewing former acquaintances.  Five out of the eight cars of  plant for the Ontario Powder  Works at Six Mile Point will be'in  Nelson jn a day or two. and the  balance has just been shipped from  t<ho East. The buildings are being  rushed ahead, though extremely  cold weather at- the Point has in-  terCored wiLh work during the past  lew days.  The repairs nnd additions to the  Waveily hotel arc pri.ctk'a.ly complete.'and the annex will shortly be  .opened, furnishers now having the  picmi��es in hand. The changes include a thorough system of heating by which the building can be  comfortably warmed iu any  weather. The additions consist of  some 2.5 rooms, all of whicli are to  be Ji-Uidsomely furnished. Parlors,  bath-room-*, and conveniences oF  every description are added to the'  building-'. The office is to have a  commodious apartment, and considerable space is added to tho dining hall and kitchen. With the  new wing, -the���Waveiiy- will-be  modern in every respect.  The entire sitting of the court  ycbterday was taken up with the  adjourned case of Thurston vs  Tattersall, a case which had been  trausfericd from the county court.  The plaintiff is .suing for $3000, being ten per cent commission on the  sale of tho Chapleau mine. Justice  Martin gave judgment in -favor of  plaintiff Cor $.).">..., reserving judgment on the question as Lo whether  he had jurisdiction to award the  balance. The fact that the action  was originally entered in the county  court complicated matters. Charles  Wilson, Q. (J., and F. Elliot appeared  for the plaintiff and Macdonald &  Johnson for tho defence.  The'license commissioners, P. IS.  Wilson and Dr. Arthur, are iu receipt of inquiries daily from parties  who desire  information  regarding  licenses to operate on ihe line of tho&l,,,ifoi'm9 a,ld a k,,aki ��ufcfifc-  Hal four extension. It is understood JY  The Mirror Lake Ice  Company is  that the commissioners have decided to grant one license between  I.alfour and Nel.son, as theie is a  sti etch of eleven miles beyond Nine-  mile point, where no accommodation can be had unless a hotel is  established.  The vaccination regulation adopted by the board of health ..cut  into effect yesterday, and its effect  on the attendance al the public  school was very noticeable. The  noimal attendance at theCcntial is  now 22Tt, a number of pupils having  been withdrawn owing to the opening of the Hume Addition and St,  Joseph's   schools.     Yesterday   the  Mining recorder Wright went to  Rossland last night on business in  connection with the transfer of a  portion of the Nelson district to the  jurisdiction of the recorder at Rossland. lie will remain to take in the  sports at the carnival.  A number of Nelsonitcs have  visited Rossland this week for the  purpose of witnessing the carnival  festivities.  The first coating of ice formed on  the lake yesterday. From Kokanee  creek to Nelson there was an inch  to an inch and a quarter of ice, but  the steamers broke through without  ditlicnlty. if tho cold snap continues boats will probably have  difficulty in running through on  time, but no tie-up. is anticipated.  The barges have been sheated with  sheet-iron to withstand the ice.  Joe Chaulatier, the Frenchman  brought in from Robson by constable Forrester on Wednesday  night, was brought before the police  magistrate5'csterday and committed  for a medical examination. Chaulatier prayed all tho way from Robson to the city aud had been  running wild in the mountains near  Fan-on on the Columbia it Western  road.  It is anticipated that the commencement of the work on the Balfour extension will bring many  Italian laborers into the vicinity of  the city, aud the fact is well known  that this class is ever handy with  the knife. Police magistrate Crease  took advantage of a case at yesterday's court which drew a score or  more of Italians together, to remark that any man convicted before him for using a knife would  receive the heaviest penalty allowed  by the law.  At the police court yesterday  Dominico Naro was charged with  doing damage to the personal property of another Italian named  Romano. Naro did not draw a  knife as was at first thought, but  cut Romano's coat up with a penknife wrhen tho owner was not  about. His little' game cost him  over $30, a $10 fine being imposed  by his worship, and $20 damages  being awarded tiie owner of the  destroyed overcoat. Naio paid the  fines together with the costs and  was released.  Eight carloads of outfit for J. N.  Stewart, the Balfour extension con-  tiactor, was reported at Robson  last night, and will bo in Nelson  today. This is but the advance  guard of the shipments which may  be expected. The C. P.

The company has*  decided to pmcha.se a number of  new uniforms at its own expense,  the government i'.sue not being liberal enough to fit out all the desirable men who wish to join.  Private Turner of the Nelson  Rifles has been appointed instructor for the physical exercise classes  at the recently opened St. Joseph's,  school. Turner lias had experience  in the samo line in England.  The uniforms taken by captain  Hodgins, sergeant Dickson, corporal  Lee and private Patterson, who  went to South Africa with the first  Canadian contingent, have been  returned, or rather new outfits  have been furnished the Nelson  Rifle Company to replace those  taken away.
