This  the Berliner Tageblatt regards as  indisputable evidence" that the  Chinese court is as anti-foreign as  ever.  "The failure of the court to return to Pekin," it says, "makes a  farce of the proposed peace negotiations, inasmuch as the Chinese  government could annul the whole  procedure at any moment by revoking the credentials of prince  Ching and Li Hung Chang." '  "iWithoufc claiming any 'official  authority for its - attitude, the  Tageblatt comnientsfavorab.ly upon  a proposal to declare emperor  Kwang Su deposed.  Hung Chang has -given the same  assurance to the other generals.  The Americans believe that revenge  and military display are the only  objects of the expedition, and they  hold that it will retard the restoration of peace.  . The Russians are understood to  have - practically abandoned the  railroad��and to have stopped its reconstruction. General Chaffee favors the return" of the railroad to  its owners and its reconstruction  and operation on a joint international basis.  The first reinforcements of German troops have arrived here.  1  The Pekin Torces.  'ekin, October 8.���General Yam-  tigucbi will retain 10,000 ."Japanese  troops, 2000 of them at Pekin and  the others at Taku and along the  line of communication. ' Eight  thousand Germans will winter in  Pekin and InOO Russians. The  uuiuber of British troops who will  be retained has not. yet been announced. Sir Alfred Gaselee will  probably keep a brigade.

Li  . Becoming More Gloomy.  London, October 9.���The Shang-  Hai correspondent of the Times,  wiring October 7th, says: "It is  reported that French - troops hold  .Lu Ko Chio ou the Lii Han railroad.  The Russians and Germans hold the  Pei Tang forts and have also taken  Tong Shan and the Kai Ping mines,  thus opposing the coal supply in  northern Chiua.  ~  Jt was expected that count von  Waldersee would maintain an even  balance' between the powers, whereas the actual resul t of the operations  places all the strategic positions iu  the hands of other nations. A  strong feeling prevails that the  situation is daily becoming more  gloomy."    Russian*! Occupy Mukden.  , St. Petersburg, October 8.���The  Russian general staff has received  official dispatches confirming the  reported occupation of Mukden.'  Lieutenant-general Subbovitch entered the city "on' October 1st!" He  advanced from Old Nin^ Cliwing on  September 24th with eleven battalions of infantry, two sorties of Cossack cavalry and forty guns, and  after fighting two engagements,  routed the Chinese army on September 27th. Before withdrawing  the Chinese looted and fired the  city. The'Russians captured numerous modern guns and immense  stores of war material.  The men are engaged for two years'  service. They are to receive 00  cents a day and free .lodging, hospital and medical attendance.  Looked Suspicious.  Berlin, October 8.'���The authorities at Hamburg arrested a man  named Carl Merlker as lie was about  to sail for New York with three  attractive Bohemian girls on the  Hamburg-American steamer Pa-  triea. Merlker, it appears, had  promised to find situations for his  companions in- the United States,  but he was unable to explain his intentions to the satisfaction of the  police.         The Law a Boomerang.  Berlin, October 8.���This evening  the Vossiche Zeitung publishes a  letter from Brisbane, asserting that  the meat inspection law, especially  the prohibition as to canned" meats',  has already proved a heavy blow tp  the Australian packing industry,  in which Germans are heavily interested financially.  Boers Still Fighting.-  Cape.

The session was behind closed doors.  The forenoon was taken up with  the examination of D.

When he left the court room Mas-  setta refused to talk, having been  warned by the officials conducting  the inquiry.  ,.: Failed to Report.  . Liverpool, October 0.���James  Fitzharris, the Phoenix Park murderer, known as "Skin the Goat,"  .was arrested here last night for  failure to report himself xinder the  terms of his prisoner release license.

Tossed By a Bull.:  Nyack, New York, October 3.���  Alonzo Stevens of Spring Valley is  in a serious condition today from  beiug tossed in the air by a bull on  Lovatt's farm. Stevens was crossing a lot when the bull rushed  toward him, caught hiin with his  horns and threw him high in the  air. When the man came down he  landed on the bull's neck and  tried to stay there, but the bull  threw him off and then put his  front foot on his breast ancl was  about to trample him to death  when a farmer who had heard Stevens' cries arrived on the scene with  a rail and drove the bull off, just in  time to save the man's life. Stevens  -was-badly-mangled-and-wascarried-  off the field unconscious.  THE   RESULT   OF   THE   ENGLISH  PARLIAMENTARY ELECTIONS.  Salisbury   Government   Returned  a Majority.of From  .   150 to 160.  By  Newfoundland Election.  St. John',?, Newfoundland, October 8.���The forthcoming colonial  election promises to be the most  hotly contested in the history of  Newfoundland. The government  organs assail Mr. Morin's admission  that he is and has been the counsel  for Reid, the contractor, alleging  Mr. Morin's success at the polls will  mean that Mr. Reid will have absolute control of tho legislature  and be able to obtain such legislation as will permit him to transfer  his numerous franchises of immense  importance to the colony to a  limited liability company.  The Floor Collapsed.  St. Petersbug, October 8.���Five  thousand pilgrims assembled at the  St. Nikander monastery, in the  Porkhoff district, for a religious festival. During thenight one of the  upper floors collapsed and many of  those sleeping there fell upon those  below. ; A panic Jwas caused by a  false alarm of fire, and four men  and SO women were crushed to  death, many others being seriously  injured.  A Munificent Wage.  Colon, Colombia, October 8.���  The first batch of 1000 of the 5000  Jamaican laborers engaged by J. P.  MacDonald, the contractor, to work  on the Guayaqnill-Quito, Ecuador,  railroad arrived here today in transit, accompanied by a representative of the Jamaican government  who will  act  as their protector  London, October 9���2,30 a. m.���  Only four results out of, the.twenty-  one constituencies polled yesterday  in the parliamentary genoral elections have been thus far announced.  These show that the Liberals have  gained two seats, one in Carmen -  thenshire and the other, strangely  enough, in the Radcliff Cum Farns-  worth division of southeast Lan-  cashire, which had hitherto gone  strongly Conservative. It looks,  therefore, as if there might be a  slight reaction in the country pollings, but this will be too late to affect the' general result seriously.  Last evening Herbert Henry  Asqnith, one of the Liberal leaders,  admitted that the Salisbury government would be returned to  power with a majority of 150 to  100. Of the 492 members already  declared officially elected, 327 are  ministerialists and 105 opposition.  _The_former_have-gained-23_seats-  and the latter 18.  London, October 9.-4 a. m.���  William Abraham, Liberal, has  been re-elected for the Rhonda Valley division of Glamorganshire,  Wales, with a majority of 0509. In  the general election in 1S95 he was  returned unopposed, as he was also  iu the elections of 1880 and 1892.  Scotch Miners Dissatisfied.  Victoria Times.  Last week word was received at  the offices of the Wellington ' Colli ery Company in Victoria that 40  of the miners who had recently arrived from Scotland to enter the  employ of the company, wero dissatisfied with the outlook at the  Union mines and had left there for  Nanaimo. Mr. A. Lindsay, of R.  Dunsmuir & Son, said that he was  unable to understand why the men  refused to work. They came to  this country on the understanding  that they were to be paid not less  than $3 a dajr. This was guaranteed them, and as they grew familiar with the mines "they were assured that they would make better  money than:-fjhe sum above quoted.  Mr. Lindsay^does not consider  that Union is an undesirable plane  to live, and ,it is puzzling him to  know wiiy the men should have  grown dissatisfied.  The Scotch miners who went to  the Extension mines appear to be  getting along finely and no trouble  is expected from that source.  Cabinet Resignation.  London, October 9.���The Daily  Telegraph says the cabinet has re-  | signed a9 a formality.  The body of a woman supposed  to be Eva Moser" was found last  night in a shack on' Ward street a  few yards north of Front street.  The matter was^J reported to- the  police and the, remains are now in  their charge. No marks of violence  were found. ,The body was identified by several. parties who have  seen the woman about during the  past four or five days, but up to a  late hour none of these knew deceased's name. ,-At 10:30 o'clock,  however, the officials from the provincial gaol examined the corpse  and pronounced it to be the remains of Eva Moser,-who .was discharged from the' gaol on October  1 after servinglOO'days for vagrancy  at Fernie. The';Moser woman's people reside iri" the maritime provinces  and are eminently respectable and'  well to do.       ;.   ,'  !  During: the . day R. W. Turpih,  who lives across ,'the C. P.-R. track,  heard cries proceeding from the  shack where the body was found.  During the afternoon W. Campbell,  who lives in .. the same vicinity,  looked into thejbuilding and saw  some person wliom he supposed to  be a drunken rafon. At 0:30 Turpin  saw the door'ajar and looked in  again. He stilt- thought it was a  drunk, out drew the attention  of W. H: Bullock-Webster, chief  of provincial' police, to *the  matter. Mr. ' - Webster entered  tho cabin and found-the woman.  She was dead,-;but-the end had  come but a short/'tiiue previous, for  the body was sitill-*warrn.' The,.remains were/almost Jiude'and layoir  a quilt on the floor. .-Chief of police  Jarvis was notified, aiid brought  the coroner,) Dr. Arthur, who ordered the body turned over'to au  undertaker. ��� An inquest may be  held.  The remains were those of a woman about < five feet six inches in  height and apparently 30 years- of  age, with blonde hair and fine cut  features. About the shack were  the following articles: A black  straw hat, fedora style, black cloak,  black skirt and veil, a gunnysack  containing a suit of men's underclothing, a pair of new socks and a  black felt hat. Scattered around  were two empty beer bottles, two  empty bottles which had contained  Irish whiskey, a ginger beer- bottle  hai C full of sugar and another ginger beer bottle containing a quantity of brown powder.  Yesterday morning the dead wo-  man-was~at"Turpin's_ house-antl"  asked for liquor.  INTELLIGENCE OF ELEPHANTS  And Their Value.  So much has been said and written about the almost human intelligence of elephants that a statement  made in a very interesting article  on "An Elephant Drive in Siam,"  which appeared in tho Wide World  Magazine, came as a surprise. The  king's herd of elephants, it appears,  i.s allowed to wander generally at  will over the plains and hills. But  once a year, before the rains begin,  they are driven into an elephant  kraal and here the most promising  youngsters are picked out for sale.  Mr. H. Hillman, the writer of the  article, said in this connection:  "It thus follows that there are  many elephants in the herds that  have been kraaled a good many  times, but such is the. stupidity of  this brute in its wild, state that it  rarely learns to escape from the annual- ordeal.: Occasionally a few  break away from the ever-narrowing cordon of., hunters-who ..are  heading them for Ayuthia/but the  proportion of these is small."  But what the wild elephant lacks  in intelligence liis tame relation  supplies abundantly, for he not only  does most of .the hard physical  labor all over India, but he is even  made to allure to escort the wild  elephant to his prison in the kraal.  Aud it evidently as true of  elephants as of other animals that  mind is more valuable nowadays,  than muscle, inasmuch as, according  to Mr. Hillman, "in his wild state  the elephant does not count for  much; but captured aud reduced to  docility he will at the present time  fetch anything between JC180 and  .��230, while his female friends will  be worth about ��130." It is astonishing to find that in these annual  drives of the largest and strongest  of quadrupeds few fatalities occur.  Swiss Marriages.  The Swiss cannot marry without  the consent of a magistrate, whose  permission or refusal is governed  by the fitness ot the parties, lt is  required that there shall be adapta-  tation botween the parties, and this  peculiar system of legalizing marriages results in happy families and  happy children.  At Geneva the mode of life is extremely social. ��� The soirees are  constant from November to spring.  These meetings resemble family  assemblages in the lack of restraint  imposed by etiquette. A stranger  is struck with the affectionate manner by wliich the women of all ages  address each other. This comes  from the influence of certain Sunday societies, in .which children  meet at their parents' houses,  where they are left to themselves  and haATe a light supper of frnits;  pastry, etc. Friendships thus  formed endure through life, and  the youthful expressions of fondness are never dropped. Divorces  are very uncommon.  THE CONVENTION OF MINERS  MINING Ail MILLING 1NBUSTBIP  News   of   Development   in   Various  Around Nelson.  Sections   in  and  ���������.-�����*���� i  &__-..}*,, I  v-y.il  A RARE FORMATION FOUND ON THE CHANTAL GROUP  A CESSATION OF HOSTILITIES ALL  ROUND IS THE RESULT.  Much .Satisfaction Is Expressed  Business Men and Others at the  Prospect of Settlement.  by  Scranton, Pensylvania, October  8:���Music Hall, atheatre adjoining  the district headquarte'rs-*antl capable of seating 1000 persons, has  been secured for Friday's convention of the United Mine Workers.  The national headquarters will be  at the St. Charles hotel, a block and  a half away. President Mitchell  and his staff will come here tomorrow night or early Wednesday  morning, and the probability is that  the headquarters will be maintained  in this city until the strike is over,  as this is the metropolis of the anthracite region. The big demonstration of Wednesday afternoon  being concluded, the work of arranging the preliminaries of the  convention will be attacked. It is  generally believed here that a complete program will be mapped out  at a conference Thursday and this  program will be followed at the  convention-on-the-following-day.-  The general feeling here is that the  10 per cent offer will be accepted as it  stands and that the matter of substituting a fixed scale for a sliding  scale in the lower districts will be  left to the affected miners themselves to settle when they come to  treat with their respective employers under the provisions of the  offer guaranteeing adjustment of  any grievances the employees may  present. Tho matter of yearly conferences to fix a new scale may also  be dealt with in the same manner,  each set of employees sending a  committee to their employer and  then reporting back to a convention conducted under the auspices  of the United Mine Workers.  Quietness prevailed throughout  the anthracite regions today. The  call for the convention is beiug  generally accepted as a signal for  cessation of hostilities all round.  There were many expressions of  satisfaction by miners and operators and by merchants and others  in the mining section today over  the prospect of an early settlement  of their troubles.  Missionaries Arrive.  Victoria, ; October    8.���Mr.  and  Mrs. Ewing, American missionaries,  who were in Pekin during the siege,  arrived here today, having reached  the Chinese coast with the American convoy.  Victim of Yellow Jack.  Havana, October 8.���Martin C.  Fosnes, acting director general of  posts, was removed today to Tas-  mios hospital suffering, it is believed, from yellow fever.  . An   interesting "strike has  been  made on the Chantal group operated by Dr. Armstrong.    The property is located half a mile west of  Grohman falls   and   a mile and a  half from the lake.    A small crew  of men has been at work since early  spring, and   the   development   to  date consists of 50 feet of drifting  on the lead and thirty feet of sinking.   The ledge is one of the widest  in   the district, and   an excellent  showing of ore has been encountered.   A day or two ago a large  piece   of   native   leaf   silver   was  found.   This formation is- rare and  is regarded as a promising indication.   The leaf was picked off the  surface of a piece of ore, and would  have been a valuable novelty, had  it not been broken into small pieces  by a fall. . Dr. Armstrong visited  the property yesterday, well satisfied with the showing.  He brought  back several ore specimens to  be  assayed,   and anticipates good returns.-    The    most   recent   assays  from the Chantal gave gold and  silver values aggregating $34.80.  Tamarac Tramway.  A contract has been let for the  clearing of the right of way for the  Tamarac tramway at Ymir. The.  apparatus is being constructed "at  B. C. 'Riblett's machine shop on  Front street and the tramway is to  be - in operation .within .three  months. When completed'the Tamarac management' expect to ship  about 40 tons of- ore daily. A trial  .shipment,will Jae'forwarded,to the  reducing worksafSilica'to _b'e tested for the purpose of ascertaining  the most economical method of  treatment. A peculiar feature of  Tamarac oro is that it carries a  large percentage of arsenic. When  tho proper method of treatment is  determined a mill will probably be  erected at the terminus of the tramway and the ore treated on the  ground.  ���  A Strike on the Siinset.  J. C. Drewry of Rossland returned to the city this morning  from a run to Lardo. While here  he was notified by wire of a remarkable strike.on the Sunset group adjoining the Whitewater and under  bond to the Canadian Gold Fields  of wliich Mr. Drewry is general  manager. The wire was from W.  H. Jeffrey, superintendent, and  read : "Two feet of ore on east upraise of- Sunset.���Assays-753 to-17-73-  ounces." Such a showing equals  anything ever discovered in the  Kootenays and if the lead holds  true, the Canadian Gold Fields will  indeed have a bonanza. It is understood that a drift will be run from  the Whitewater to tap the new  vein at a depth of 340 feet.  taken   for   gold   specimens and a"'-  second, for free gold ore. .. Alfred. "  Parr, secretary of the Ymir Miners'^  Union, had charge of the exhib'itV?"^]  for the district. - '���'���.-.~'-iA  Mill Run for September.

Corrected returns for the month of  August place the total values recovered for thatmouth at$l 7,872.24.  Will Pay a Dividend.  While this is not given on the  authority of the management, ifc is  said that the St. Eugene mines afc  Moyie, East Kootenay, will pay a'.  dividend on the ,lsfc of. November,  and from thafc time on a dividend  will be paid every three months. The  Sfc. Eugene mines are one of the big  properties in British Columbia, if  nofc one of the largest silver-lead  mines on the Pacific coast.  Ymir District Prizes,  Tiie men interested in mining in  Ymir district aro very naturally  elated over the fact that the dis  trict carried off two prizes at  the  j Spokane exhibition.     A first was [ Joseph Campbell on the Rustler.  iJSl  ,r*-_  Miscellaneous.  Robert   Nelson, foreman at  Juno group, was in the city yester  day.

The spur leaves the track a  mile and a half from Slocan Cifcy  and will be completed by the end  of the week. The Ivanhoe is to*  ship three cars of concentrates:  daily during the winter. When the  work is finished the big pile driver  will be brought to Nelson to drive  the piles for the coal bunkers which  the C.P.R. is erecting in connection with tlieir new roundhouse.  The bunkers will expedite the coaling of locomotives materially.  The tenders for the freight shed  at the C. P. R.- depot will be opened  today. The building will be served  by two long tracks on the south  side, while the team tracks are on  the south side further over with an  entrance at"the east end ol! the  building. The arrangement provides that teams hauling goods  from the station will have no tracks  to cross.    Tho new- K.

WIFE DOING SAD PENANCE  While Held a Prisoner...  " In a beautiful Brooklyn, New  York, home today a woman is doing penance as faithfully as ever  =, -;"'��� performed in the walls of a convert fc. Attired in the trailing white  garments of a novice, her face  y closely veiled, she passes her days  in almost utter silence, speaking  only when necessity requires it.  She leaves her apartments only at  nightfall, but never leaves the con-'  fines of the grounds surrounding  the house.  The only person who ever sees  her and to whom she ever speaks is  the man to whom she did the greatest wrong a wife'can do a husbaud  --the wrong of infidelity.., The law  ilias^given him the right to cast her  ^off; itvhas absolved him from the  responsibility of protection or support.    He is free to marry again,  but he has not done so.    Instead,  he has taken her to liis homo.   He  is  giving her  the  opportunity to  prove that she is a thoroughly repentant wife, to atone for her sins,  ���  aud then once again he will restore  her to her position and give her the  ���.'rightful use of his name.  The woman-is Mary Nolan Moore  Gill-Martin. The man is .lames  Palmerston Gill-Martin, portrait  painter. Thoir home is at Fort  Hamilton avenue and Kighty-lirsfc  street, Bay Ridge. Nearly a year  ago society was astonished when  Gill-Martin, a well-known artist,  "then living at .2015 Fifth avenue,  brought ..suit.fou .alienation of the  affections of liis wife against Patrick' MclnoriljV'a* wealthy Brooklyn merchant. - He.wanted $o0,000;'  damages.  Gill-Martin, an Irishman by birth,  had painted the portraits of many  of the "Four Hundred" and  was  well   known   in   exhibitions   and  galleries.   His studio was  magnificently furnished, and he entertained  lavishly.   He met Mrs. "May Nolan  Moore.   She was beautiful and the  widow of an English army officer.  . They loved and "after a short courtship were married.  ' In buying furnishings for her new  ���home Mrs. Gill-Martin went to the  ^store of Patrick Melnerny,  a dry  goods merchant of "454 Fifth avenue,  Brooklyn.    Melnerny was 00 years  . ofd, but well preserved.   He fell- in  .love with the beautiful wife of 'the  artist.  '    This was in . the latter part of  ,' 1897, aud on January 1st, lSQS^tha  ^wife~left^lier~hTisbTSull^without���a=  word.    Heartbroken,   he searched  for her, and at last, as he swore in  - court, he found her.   She was at a  hotel in Upper Broadway- and  Melnerny was with her.  "I seized him around, the neck,"  testified Gill-Martin at the trial,  . and if it had.not been for. the detective I would have killed him. I  wanted to kill him. I tried to'choke  him to death. He had taken from  me everything I loved ou earth."  The jury in justice Fitzgerald's  court allowed the artist $10,000  damages. The husband immediately afterward brought suit for  divorce against his wife. Thp testimony of the suit was used in the  divorce proceedings and the decree  was granted without a contest,  immediately afterwards the hus-  tyuid went one way, the wife  another. He gave up his Fifth  avenue studio, and it was reported  that.he.had gone'abroad.  ���  When    Gill-Martin    reappeared  THE BANK OF  BRITISH  COLUMBIA  NELSON  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  again he had become surly, eccentric and silent. He shunned his old  friends, remained absent from his  former haunts and was practically  a recluse.  The next that was heard of him  he bought a large lot at Fort Hamilton avenue and Fighty-lirst street  and was having hauled there tho  oddest building material ever-seen.  It was the laughing stock of the  neighborhood���refuse, stones, brick  from houses which had been torn  down, paving blocks, ilags and  cobblestones. There was a sprinkling of marble and granite and several pieces of onyx.  '���'; Out of all this grew an imposing  and artistic structure. It was in  the shape of an old Irish castle.  The irregularity in the shape and  color of tho parts composing the  walls gave an effect which sculptors  have gone to see.  Soon after the castle was completed the woman appeared. Just  when no one knows, and her presence would not have been discovered if rumors that a ghost walked  about the house at night had not  become current in tho neighborhood; Small boys and young girls  passing at dusk said that they saw  a figure all in white walking slowly  about thehouse.  * The spot became known as a  haunted one. and the neighborhood  talked. When tradesmen wrent to  the house they saw only tho artist.  But one servant could be seen about  the place. She was an old woman  and was as silent as her master.  lt was uot until the police began  to investigate��: rumors that the  truth became known.  "She was my wife," said Gill-  Martin, "and she is here .under my  protection now. She is here willingly and under an arrangement of  which I will not speak at present."  "Do you intend to marry her  again ?" he was asked.  ���  "Of that T will say nothing."  While he was speaking the  woman wearing a thick white veil,  entered the room and stood silent.  She heard Gill-Martin's last words  and turned to him with a slight  gesture. Then, when Gill-Martin,  as if to give her permission to  speak, nodded, she said:  "I am sure he will tell you all  there is-to be told."  Changing the Cars.  The consolidation of the two  great sleeping car companies made  necessary a vast amount of work,  says the Chicago News. The word  Wagner had to be painted out of  720 cars of that company. ��� Of the  cars operated by the Wagner company 502 bore the same names as  502 of those belonging to the Pullman company. A list of these  duplicate cars was made out, and  the day after the transfer painters  went to work changing them. The  first Wagner sleeper had its name  changed from Java to Paltava. The  Pullman  standards-lock is^_b.eing.  placed in former Wagner cars^thus  causing a ��� change of 40,000 locks.  The bed -line,- blankets, ~ towelsi  doormats and the glass in those  windows - containing monograms  will have to be changed, and it may  take many months before the alterations are completed.  Paris and Its Cabs.  The population of Paris maybe  roughly .divided into two groups,  those who drive cabs and those who  ride in them. The number of cabs  is amazing. Everywhere one finds  them. Apparently it is only necessary to go out into the street before  your door at any hour of day or  night, raise your hand and a cab  drives up" to the curb before you.  And the cabmen seem to be in the  main honest, obliging fellows. The  stories of their fleecing travelers  this year are not true, according to  my experience. It is true that  they expect a slightly larger pour-  boire from  foreigners   than   from  and'  'We have just received aJarge consignment of Old Settlers' Maple Syrup, the best  cn the market; also some.pure Ontario White Clover Honey.

Carbolic Acid Antidote.  Up to the present time the treatment of carbolic acid poisoning has  been-most unsatisfactory. It- has  now been discovered that alcohol is  a most effective antidote to this  poison. In one case, attended by  H.

Four ounces  of alcohol were introduced through  a stomach tube, and the stomach  was then washed out, first with  warm' water and then with diluted  Surpassing  Display in  Fall Suitings  All the fashionable creations  in Fall and Winter wear are  included in my last consignment of Scotch and Irish  Serges, Tweeds and Worsteds, and Fancy Trouserings  E; Skinner  Neelands' Building, Baker Streeb.

The business transacted at last  night's session of the city council  was largely of a-routine nature.  The members present were: Mayor  Houston, aldermen Trvine, Morrison and Arthur.  J. Matheson applied on behalf of  Mrs. J. Mcljeod for an extension of  the sewer on Vietoria street to lots  0 and 7, block _ 7, to reach the two  houses whicli Mrs. MeLeod has under construction. The communication was referred to the board of  works.  W. G. Brown requested the council to put in a ditch on the north  side of Gore street, stating that liis  cellar contained a foot of water  which a ditch would drain away.  Referred to the board of works.  W. H. Bullock-Webster applied  to have the electric light wires extended from the corner of Josephine  and Latimer streets to the corner  ^f"HSllTcMT^tim��i^iHl)Meirto"fuT^  nish service for his new residence.  Referred to the board of works.  J. C. T. Crofts wrote offering to  sell the eity a Blake stone crusher  now set up at the sampling works.  The machine has not been operated  since its trial run and is guaranteed  to.turn out five tons of two-inch  stone per hour or two and a half  tons of one-inch stone. The price  quoted for delivery at the sampler  was $300. Referred to the board  of works.  F. R. C. Beer handed in a communication requesting to be reinstated  as collector of road taxes. The matter was not gone into.  Alderman Wilson "suggested removing the electric light from the  corner of Railway and Vernon  streets to the corner of Baker and  Railway, as all traffic from the C.  P. R. depot is now via the Raker  street extension. This was authorized, together with the temporary  placing of incandescent lamps at  several points down the hill into  the station. '  It was recommended that the  council authorize a street lamp near  the public library on Victoria  street, and on motion of alderman  Irvine and Wilson tho placing of a  50 caudle power incandescent light  at the door was carried. The council also resolved to lay a sixrfoot'  sidewalk on the north side of Victoria street from Ward to Stanley.  street.  Aldermen Irvine and Wilson  moved that the sidewalk on the  south side of Baker street be laid  from the Sherbrooke Iiotel as far  west as necessary. Carried.  A question :was asked as to the  progress., made in securing the  water front riglitsufroyftfhe" g%7e*r*n-  ment. Mayor ^Houston reported  that three ministers would visit  Nelson this week, when the matter  would be gone into with them.  MULLER IS OUT OF DANCER  And Besting Easily.  William T. Muller, who was shot  on Sunday, is pronounced out of  danger and likely to recover  quickly. The bullet entered his  body an inch below the abdomen  and took a downward course  toward the center of the boly. It  was located this morning on the inside of the left, leg about an inch  from the surface. No large arteries or muscles wero cut, the severe  hemorrhage following the shot  being from one of tiie small arteries. Muller is comfortable and suffers no discomfort from his wound  save weakness arising from loss of  blood, v' ; ���;������������     ..:';.''  The prisoner, who gives his name  as Fred Howard, was arraigned  this morning on a charge of attempted murder. He was taken to  the hospital, where magistrate  Crease took Midler's statement in  the prisoner's presence. Muller  swore that Howard wanted to sit  in a card game, and on being told  to get out drew the revolver, precipitating the struggle in which the  shots, were fired. Further he stated  that his relations with Howard had  always been of the friendliest nature; that he had never played  cards with Howard, and that on  several occasions he had lent the  prisoner sums of money, not all of  which,had been returned.  At. the hospital . Howard asked  for a lawyer* but. was. told that it  was too late to secure an attorney  for the examination. He was given  a chance to question Muller or to  reserve his cross-examination until  he had secured counsel, and chose  the latter course. Howard is careful to say nothing about the shooting, but expressed great relief on  learning that Muller was likely to  pull through. The matter was remanded to this morning, when further evidence will be taken.  A Veteran of, the Crimea.  Thomas Luscombc,"a veteran, of  the Crimean, war and Indian mutiny," is'in' the city.
