 DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE   DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR  unz  WEEKLY EDITION  BY MAIL  TWO  DOLLARS A YEAR  TRAMWAY COMPANY AGAIN  Would Supply Power.  The leading feature of last night's  council  meeting  was the resurrection  of the  Tramway   Company's  application  to   dispose of   electric  power iu  Nelson,  and the  council  eventually decided to submit a bylaw to the people empowering  the  company to sell power through the  city.    Those present included mayor  Houston   and  aldermen   Morrison,  Wilson, Arthur and Hall.  -   A petition signed by a number of  citizens and business men was read  praying that tho city council  submit a bylaw to  secure the amendment   of   the tramway; con^any's  charter to permit  of them  selling  electric power in the city.    Some 00  names were affixed to the  petition.  ,r The petition was supported  by a  deputation representing   the   company and  including captain Duncan,  1<\  W.  Peters and  M.   Carey.  Manager Fred Burnett of  the  gas  company   happened, to   be in   the  council chamber  at the. moment as  was also Thoburn Alleu, accountant  of the P. Burns Company.  After mayor  Houston  had  read  the petition he remarked that this  matter should be dealt with once  and for  all.    It -was manifestly a  .persistent'effort-on  the part  of a  company   which    had. received   a  charter from the city to carry on a  certain business to secure leave  to  go into  another   line  of   business  which would bring them  into competition with the city.    .-Municipal  ownership was either a good  tiling  dr it was not.  If (Lb   city  had   undertaken  to  supply 'power tc was in just as good  shape to  dp so  as the  Tramway  Company was, and if the members  of the board were wise they Avould  lay the subject on the table and  allow it to remain there until their  tirm of office expired.  Aldermen Arthur and Hall moved that a bylaw be submitted to  the ratepayers providing that the  council be empowered, to take 100  electrical horsepower from the  " Tiamway Compauy. The resolution was carried, the mayor dissenting.  F. W. Peters asked if ho might  say a woid, but permission was i-e-  fufced on the ground that the subject was closed.  Seveial citizens applied for a  sidewalk on tho east side of Cedar  street^ between Latimer and Mill  streets. Tho communication was  referred to the public works committee.  A suggestion was made that some  work should be done at the corner  of Robson and   Kootenay   streets  where tile road is almost impassible  t for teams, and the city engineer  was authorized to have an estimate  made of the amount   of material  juecesftary to put the road iu shape.  The mayor reported that the re ���  taiuing wall at the corner of Silica  and Ward streets was complete as  far as the appropriation allowed,  and suggested that it be continued  to make a good job of the business.  - On_motion���of aldermen "Arthur  and Wilson it was resolved that the  city engineer should prepare  plans  and advertise for tenders to bo in  by Monday next for tho completion  of the  work.     The   specifications  will call for the construction of 100  yards more or less of wall.  The subject of a retaining wall at  the corner of Victoria and Stanley ]  streets  was  brought np, and  this  was included iu the previous resolution.  ftlayor Houston brought up the  matter   o\   opening   the   alley   in  block 1 j, and ou resolution the city  engineer was authori^cl to prepare  'the plans.  The council resolved to lay the  iloors and hang the doors in the extension to the city firo hall.  II. B. Whalley wrote calling the  (attention of the council to the bad  crossing opposite the car barn on  th& Hall Mines road.   The city engineer reported that the company  would do the  work,   aiul   tt w;;s  agreed that it this was not carried  out the work would be parried out  by the city, and the cost thereof  subtracted  from  certain  company  funds now in the hands of the city.  The lire limits by-law was finally  read and referred  to  nest meeting  pf council for passage.  fi On a motion of aldermen Arthur  and HfcU, 1 endcrs will  bo called for | baufc"  the erection uf electric light poles  oi�� /Silica street and for an  extension io  the eastern limits of the  city.  "���   Mayor Houston reported in  had not proved practical and the  work had been discontinued.   It remained for the council to say what  should   be   done.   Alderman   Hall  and  Morrison .moved   that Front  street be planked under the supervision of the city engineer for three  blocks,   from    near   Josephine   to  Cedar streets and on Hall street  from the tramway track to the C.  P. R. track.    This was carried.  The special committee appointed  to confer with the directors of the  Kootenay Lake General hospital  submitted a report, recommending  that tho city make a grant of $1500  in a lump sum on the condition  that no further charge should be  made for city charity patients during the present year. On motion of  aldermen Hall and Wilson the report was adopted. -  The finance committee recommended'the payment of a budget  of accounts aggregating $2784.77.  The mayor brought up  several  accounts incurred during the smallpox trouble; which the finance committee had preferred to lay before  the council.    These  were:   D. McArthur &. Co., furniture for isolation  hospital,  $52.50 ; J. A. Gilker,  $52.50, clothing etc.; Nelson  Transfer Compauy, $47.50, $15.00 only of  which comes under the special heading; Kirkpatrick & Wilson, $52.60 ;  Nelson Saw & Planing Mills, Limited,   $290.55 for   hospital building.  All these were passed  with the exception of a portion of J. A. Gilker's  account -which   was    for 'overalls  I furnished passengers on the steamer  Moyie and which the city declines  to pay, believing that this  expense  should  be borne  by the province,  Aldermen Arthur and Hall moved  that the matter of the accounts incurred for smallpox, isolation and  prevention purposes be taken up  with the government at once.  Hume addition citizens petitioned  for an extension of the water mains  past the easterly limit of the city,  offering to pay the regular city  charges. Aldermen Arthur and  Wilson moved that the request be  granted, which was carried.  A statement of account from sir  'Charles Hibbert Tupper. for $500  counsel fee,' in the case of Traves vs.  'city of Nelson was presented and  |- tho city clerk was instructed to  offer sir Charles $250 in jiayaient of  his account.  NELSON:  TUESDAY MOENJNG, MARCH  NO   POLITICS  FOR  13  1900.         THEM  Board of Trade Meeting.  The board of trade yesterday de-  BLOEMFONTEIN IS OCCUPIED j JOKER IS A VERY RICH MIN  PRICE FIVE  CENTS.  BAD ACCIDENT ON TUG, yiWIR  Safety Valve Broke.  A most unfortunate accident occurred yesterday afternoon aboard  the tug Ymir at Kootenay Landing  when R. L. Brown, chief engineer,  and Hedley St. .Clair, second engineers were terribly scalded by  escaping steam.  The engineers were engaged in  overhauling   the boiler when  the  safety valve brokq, the steam rushing out and enveloping them from  head  to foot.    Both were frightfully burned, Brown's injuries being  particularly   severe owing to  the  I fact that he inhaled the hot steam.,  " The cre\vof the Ymir did all in  their power to alleviate the sufferings   of the scalded men.     They  were   taken   aboard   the   steamer  Nelson which immediately headed  for "Nelson a t full speed.   A telegraphic message was forwarded to  the local ofijcials who sent out the  steamer Moyie \yith Dr. Rose, house  physician at tho general hospital,  clined to allow itself to be made  the tool of the Mine Owners' Association and filed the political resolutions of the Kaslo and associated  boards of trade. Before proceeding  with the business of the evening,  T. S. MacPherson and T. R. Arch-  bold were elected members of the  board without ballot.  The following lesolution was  then passed: That by reason of  the district having become more  thickly settled, and other boards of  trade having been incorporated in  the district, the council be empowered to apply to the secretary of  state to have the name of this  board changed to the Nelson board  of trade.  The report of the auditor, J. J.  Campbell, certifying that the accounts of the board for last year as  read at the annual meeting were  correct, was read.  The president reported on behalf  of the telephone committee that he  had succeeded in obtaining a reduction of rates, as already published in this paper.  The resignation of J. R. Robertson  as member of the council was accepted, and G. Frank,Beer elected  in his place.  Copies of resolutions passed by  the Rossland board of trade opposing any increase in  taxes on the  mining, industry, and   asking for  the rescinding of a recent ruling relating to the obtaining of certificates of   improvement   were read  and filed.    The same fate met the  resolutions of the associated boards  of trade and a   letter   from   the  Kaslo board of trade asking the en-  dorsation of their petition on the  eight-hour question.  In response to a letter from W.  A. Macdonald, the secretary was instructed to approach the telephone  company on the question of having  telephone connection with the Slocan and Kasl8, thereby bringing the  retailers there in closer connection  with Nelson wholesalers.  The meeting was well attended,  those present including  the president,  G. V. Holt, secretary Swannell, P. Lamont, W. R. McLean, J.  T. C. Crofts, F. Fletcher, T. G. Proctor, J. M. Lay, G. F.

ANOTHER TRAMWAY SCHEME  BOERS  ACAIN  OUTWITTED  To Best the Corporation.  At the meeting Of tho city coun  cil last evening "the following petition was presented, iii-;-which the  council was asked to submit a bylaw to the ratepayers, so amending  the tramway company's \charter as  to permit the company to compete  with the municipality in the sale of  electricity for lighting purposes:  The petition of the undersigned,  ratepayers and residents of the  city of Nelson, humbly sheweth :  1. That with the rapid growth of  the city it is becoming impossible to  supply the ever increasing demands  of the citizens for light "and power  on account of the uncertain amount  of water power obtainable.  2.   That your petitioners arc informed   that   the Nelsons-Electric  Tramway Company,   Limited, are  in   a position  to  sell   power aud  light to the city and to the citizens,  and which would bo of groat convenience at the "present time., as a  number of parties are  desirous of  obtaining, electric power,  but are  prevented   for   the   reason   after-  mentioned.  3. That bylaw number 42, of the  city of Nelson as passed by the city  council and approved of by the  electors of the city, contains certain restrictions which prevent the  said tramway company fi om selling  power or light that they may have  at their disposal.   ,  i.

Mr.  Miller has  with him a plan  of the  work done on  the property under  his supervision and describes in  a  most interesting  manner the  brilliant prospects ahead of Camp Mansfield.  "The property " said Mr. Miller to-  The Tribune yesterday, "includes  three ..claims,    the    Joker,   Mona  Fraction  aud  Derby.     The  upper  portion of the Joker, as shown  on  this sketch, has beeii tunnelled for  GO feet.    The tunnel runs.in on the  vein matter throughout and was  completed     in   November.       The  largest" paystreak  is   IS inches in  width and assays as ��� high as $90  from side to side.   The  balance of  the vein is concentrating gold  and  silver   ore.   We   describe   this   as  tunnel No. 1."  " Tunnel No. 2 is only projected,  but a crosscut has been made at the  -mouth, and .exposes a vein of the  whole width of the projected  tunnel.  "Tunnel No. 3 is now being driven  on the ledge and has already been  driven   240   feet   from   the   shaft  which is sunk at the boundary line  between the Joker and the Tread-  well, the latter being the property  of Rene Laudi.    No. 3 is running in  ore and has been for 120 feet, the  entire tunnel being  in vein matter.  A crosscut has-been  driven  from  wall to wall,  33 feet,  showing excellent   concentrating   ore   and , a  paystreak of high grade gold and  galena ores assaying from, $30  to  $115 per ton. The paystreak is now  four feet wide and evidences a tendency to widen as the tunnel  progresses.  "An upraise is being made, ISO  feet from the mouth, 35 feet of  whiehis completed, leaving 70 feet  necessary to reach tho surface.  The ^upraise is iu yein.xnatter, but  its "com so is away  from  the  C I was made comfortable in the main  ���* ' building which has not yet been  used up to the present time. Nurse  Fahey accompanied Miss Hearle and  and will nurse her through the  disease.  Nurse Hearle vaccinated all the  passengers    aboard    the    steamer  Moyie and on the boat on various  occasions, but the clothing that she  wore on these has not been returned, and in view of the fact that the  period of incubation in smallpox is  ordinarily 12   to 14 days it is not  thought she could have contracted  the disease on tho Moyie as her last  visit there was 20 days ago.   The  theory is advanced that she contracted :.. the -disease    from   some  infected person who came to the  office to be vaccinated.  At an early hour on Monday the  parties   residing   in   the   Victoria  block moved out and the work of  fumigating   was    commenced,   beginning with Dr.   LaBau's office?.  The doors and windows were caulked,: holes bjred in the doors and  rubber    hose    attached    through  which the fumigating vapors  were  pumped   by the small "generating  machines.   During the day 35,000  cubic feet of gas was forced into  the rooms, the result of which will  be a thorough disinfection.

An interesting letter has been received from a member of Strathcona's Horse which goes  to show  that, although the personnel of the  force i3 excellent, its efficiency may  be impaired for the want of competent officers.    The writer served  for sevei"al-years in the cavalry of  the   imperial   army    and   knows  whereof he speaks.    His letter is in.'  part as follows :  "Our   uniform   consists  of   rifle',  green jackets, white collars, brown  boots, Stetson cowboy hats, cavalry  cloaks,   khaki,  Avlien we get into  warmer    climates.      The    underclothing.and small kit are generally  good   and'plentiful.     The   cloaks  first issued, and the hats are to bo  condemned. The grub is poor, meat  three times a day,  tough and  nothing else.   No pay has been issued  'iip to date.  "The    officers,   considering   the  nature of the work to be done and  the large percentage  of men  who  know absolutely nothing of military  life and duties, ought' to know all   <  their duties thoroughly, both drill  and   interior   economy,   but   such  are    conspicuous     by   their    aDj��� -  sence.        Our     squadron      leader  major   Laurie,   better   known    as  "Puffing Billy," is a decent sort, but  quite ignorant of his duty.    All details of regimental life are based on  police customs, which, however good  in   themselves,   were   framed    for  smaller numbers and  a  fixed post,  aud  are  quite   inadequate  to  our  numbers and  green  hands.    However, apart from  these  criticisms,'  the men have  learned  squad  drill  wonderfully well, and, so far as iny  experience goes, if the  orders  are  issued clearly in proper style, they  are only too anxious  to learn aud  fit themselves.  ' "The people of Ottawa are treating us in splendid style. Each night  there are concerts, dances and suppers, to which all are welcome.'- On  Friday last 300 of us went toKideau  'Hall, Minto's residence, and'were  entertained in great style. There  were theatricals and supper afterwards.  "The weather has been truly  awful, t with snow and wind, the  thermometer from 10 to 30 degrees  below zero.

The     regiment     passed  through here en route from Ottawa  for Halifax.    Their stay  in Montreal   lasted six   hours.     The city  turned itself loose on the plainsmen  from the Canadian northwest.    The  line of parade was three miles long,  and   every inch  was occupied by  cheering citizen*.    A luncheon  was  tendered the regiment at the Wind-  -sor,  after   which   the  trains  were  again  boar^eJ, 1 aving for Halifax  at i) o'clock.  Four men have arrogated to themselves the right to say what tiie  Conservatives of Neison shall do iu  the coming provincial election.

The rank aud file of tho Conservative party in Nelson would to a  maus fight for party if party issued  were at stake; but they cannot be  made believe that it is wise to follow the lead of the men who are  clamoring for party lines in Kootenay, for they know that thoy arc  not, in any respect, representative  Conservatives, 'either in point of  ability or iu party fealty.  "Bob" Green of Kaslo is a Conservative who has fought for the party  in every contest that the party lias  made since he became of age.

Burns k Co. to compete with the  city in selling electric  light.     This  linn has practically a monopoly of  .the fresh  meat business in Nelson.  In order to carry on their business  of selling meat by retail without  interruption, the fire limits bylaw,  one of the best the city has had,  was tinkered with, and the result  has been a loss to the city of over  $2000,  directly and   indirectly,  in  law costs.   Not satisfied with this  the firm  now wants an admitted  paying  utility to  come   in  direct  competition with a private corpora-  igij  tion in order that they (P. Burns &  Co.)   may   be    enabled   to   secure  electric power to run a cold storage  plant that needs power for a few  months in the year.   The firm of P.  Burns & Co. arc just a trifle hoggish  in their demands, and  it  is about  time that   the   people   should  let  them know that they will not be  allowed to feed with all four feet in  the trough.  The members   of the board of-  trade took the proper course last  evening in filing the several  political communications which came before thorns There is no surer way  to destroy the usefulness of a body  such as a  board  of trade  than to  keep'political questions  upon^ tho  order paper. * Among   tiie matters  shelved by the board at its meeting  last evening was a communication  from Rossland, iu wliich the Nelson  board   was   requested   to   protest  against any increased taxation up-,  on the mining industry.   This is a  rather important matter for a public body to dispose of off hand; but  it   frequently   happens   that  just  such questions are disposed of by a  show of hands.   Most people are  opposed to taxes of all kinds.    It is  therefore not difficult to  secure a  majority vote in a public  meeting  against any' suggested  increase in  taxation, and the result is that a  deliberative,body is often committed to a verdict without any consideration of the facts.    The matter  of the taxation of the mines will  doubtless receive attention at the  next session of the legislature.   It  was held by the late government  that the revenue received from the  mining industry was not such as  as the provincial treasury was fairly entitled to.   It will be no  easy  task to determine just what the  taxation should be, but it is a matter which properly falls within the  sphere of the legislature, and until  it has  been  thoroughly   threshed  out, business men who comprise the  membership of boards of trade can  hardly be exj>ected to give the matter such attention as would justify  them in saying whether the present  tax should in justice be increased  or not.  The petition which was presented  to the ^city council   last evening,  asking for the submission of a bylaw to amend the- tramway company's charter so that it can. compete with the corporation in  electric lighting, shows what a private  corporation can accomplish  when  its officers are persistent.   Whether  they intended it or not, the men  who signed the petition thereby expressed themselves as in  favor of  the city taking the tramway company into partnership in the lighting business. Already some of those  whose names appear upon tho petition profess that "they had no such  intention, but the fact remains that  they lent themselves to the tramway company's game. The petition, while not formidable, shows  how easy it is to secure signatures  for anything, especially when the  body of the petition is never read.  It is in existcuce merely because it  was to the interest of certain persons to create it. The great majority of the people signed it merely  because they were asked to.  S BAY  COMPANY.

"When tlio order was given for the  despatch of the Indian contingent  and other reinforcements to Natal,  it was felt that a command of such  importance should be entrusted to  an" oflieer of great experience, and  the distinguished service which sir  George "White had rendered plainly  indicated  his fitness for the post.  The gallant officer at the time had  just relinquished the  quartermaster-generalship to the forces in order  to take up tho appointment of governor of Gibraltar.    Tn command of  the Natal Field .Force, he has done  splendid  work   in   protecting   the  colony from military occupation by  the  main army of the  Bocrg, and  the unselfishness with which he left  tho    direction   of    operations    at  Klandslaagte to geueral French, the  skill with which he covered general  yule's retirement fiom Dundee, and  tho    manly   spirit    in   which   he  accepted all responsibility for the  partial  reverse at   Ladysmith   on  October JJOfch, have won him the regard of all.    The brilliant career of  dr  George   White is well  knoAvn.  ilis many war services, beginning  .vith the Indian mutiny, have made  am famous.    By two splendid acts  if courage and good .service in the  Ai'ghan  war he  won the Victoria  Jross aud the brevet of licuteuant-  ���olonol.

Tho eastbound main line train had  12 through passengers who were  brought down the Arrow lakes,  then by train to Nelson, and left  here at midnight on the Moyie for  the Crow's Nest road.  The fire department had another  run last night, this time to a burning shack just above the alley behind the second hand store on  Josephine street. The fire boys  were promptly on hand as usual  and extinguished the flames without much trouble. Between tho  combined action of firo and water  the shack was a total loss, but the  prompt action of the brigade prevented the ilamcs from spreading  to any of the adjacent buildings.  The Northport train agaiu failed  to arrive in Nelson, being detained  by mudslides. It was also announced last night that the train for  Northport will not leave this morning as usual.  F. AV.
