 DAILY  EDITION   BY  MAIL  FIVE DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION  BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR.  NELSON:  SATURDAY MORNING DECEMBER 1  1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  THE COUSIN JACK GB0UP BONDED  Description  of the  Property  and  Its  Location  Already Well  Developed.  It Is  MOLLY GIBSON TRAMWAY IN OPERATION-OTHER NEWS  TORONTO STOCK EXCHANGE.'  An .'important*- mining deal  was  closed in  Nelson   yesterday  when  Charles Parker bonded the  Cousi  Jack group of claims whicli is regarded as one of the  choicest, properties in the great copper belt  of  t.he  upper    Similkameen   country.  The transaction was on a basis of  -���?1S0,000, part of the consideration  being  shares  in  .a company to be  floated in  England   to handle the  property.   The group is reported to  1)2 the making of a remarkably rich  mine, one of its strong features outside of the merit of the claims thorn-  selves being  its  proximity  to  the  splendid deposits of coal discovered  in the district.  The Cousin .Tack group is located  a short distance up Boulder creek,  which enters the Otter, lakes and  discharges through them into the  Tulumee'n river, which in turn joins  the main Similkameen river at  Princeton. The property comprises  the Cousin .Tack, International, Constitution, Nancy Hanks, Gold Hill,  Overland, Penobscot, Monte Verdi  and Chilliwack Belle claims, owned  by Jack Phynne,' Edward Todd, A.  Johnston, A. Clarkman, Neil MeLeod, C. G. Sperring and H. Allen.  It is a copper aud gold proposition  v,->ih profitable lead values on certain of the claims. The group was  staked "by Edward Todd last year,  .and the. development is well advanced considering the recent date  of location.      -  Two strong veins traverse the  property and, it is believed they  form a junction at some ��� point. on  the group. No. 1 ledge is traced  on the International, Constitution,  Naucy Hanks aiid Gold, Hill. It is  5 feet 8 inches in width, with 3 feet  of solid ore carrying average values  of 13 per cent copper and $8 in  gold. The second vein is opened  up on the Cousin .Tack claim and is  13-feet wide. It.isj.claimed to average all across - 30 per cent lead, 2  per cent copper and $0 in gold.  Prom a crosscut tunnel on this vein  100 tons of ore has been taken and  the dump samples .$17 per ton.  These figures are obtained from assay reports.  During the present year the  C. P. R. had an official in this section looking up coal lands. It was  .ascertained that the deposits were  enormous and tests demonstrated  the average quality to even exceed  the Crow's Nest product. The district has also obtained some no-  triety because of the platinum  "finds. Within, a comparatively  short distance of the Cousin Jack  group is the St. George group, including the London, Liverpool,  *'Frisco, St. Louis and St. George  claims, owned by Edward Todd,  well known about Nelson as the locator of the Buck Horn at Ymir,  and Charles Law, a prominent mining man of Vancouver. Mr. Law  is now in England promoting ^a  company to float the property.  The .St. George runs $80 in copper  and gold and one-half per cent in  platinum.       _______  Molly Gibson Shipping Ore.  The Molly Gibson  mine has   its  tramway in operation, and the first  carload of ore that came down over  the tramway was received at the  Hall Mines smelter in Nelson on  Thursday. The mine has shipped  580 tons so far, and is in shape to  keep shipments up regularly. This  is one of the many mines that is  operated from Nelson, and managed by men' who live in Nelson.  It is'also one of the mines iu which  the people have confidence in the  management, as for every dollar  that has been expended there is a  dollar's worth of property in sight.  Mining properties that are carefully  and economically handled will pay  dividends, and the shares in* dividend-paying mines never go beg;  �����"-����� _____  The Original Location.  An interesting find was made at  the mining recorder's office yesterday among the mass of papers  turned over the Nelson office to be  written up. The find was the original location notice of the Le Roi  mine at Rossland by colonel E. S.  Topping, now of Trail, ou  July  14,  1890.    The document is a half sheet  of common linen note* paper and is  written   in    ink,"   the    regulation  printed forms now-in-use being an  unknown quantity ten   years ago.  The   paper reads:    "Please  record  the Le Roi   mineral    claim, situated near the  west fork of Trail  creek   on   the   west   side   of   the  Columbia   river    and    about   five  miles   from   that   stream.     Claim  commences at west end stake of  the Center Star mineral claim and  runs in   a   westerly  direction  for  1500'feet with a width of 000 feet.  Locator,   E.    S.   Topping,  located  ���Tuly 14th, 1890."    The story of the  location of the big Rossland mines  is that Joe Bonrjois, Joe Morris and  a couple of   partners    prospected  what is now the  Rossland district  and . discovered   Red . ''mountain.  They brought samples of the rock  to Nelson aud showed them to Mr.  Topping, offering him the choice of  five   claims if he would   pay for  recording   the lot.     This   he  did,  selecting   the  Le   Roi.      Bonrjois  afterwards   discovered the   North  Star mine at Kimberley and is now  living at Edmonton.  He Likes the Country.  Jean B. Richard, the Belgian mining  engineer who has   just completed an examination of the properties owned by Ernest Mansfield,  acting in  the interest' of English  capitalists, has formed a very favorable  impression of British Columbia as a mining country.   His  experience is broad, covering Af-  . rica,. West Australia, Arizona and  portions of Asia.   In none-of these  countries did he find sucha happy  combination of tunnel propositions  with splendid water   power   and  fine timber as can be had in any of  the Kootenay mining camps. These  features are of the greatest importance in figuring on the possibilities  of the mining industry in any country, and their abundance here has  made a marked impression on Mr.  Richard.    In referring to the outlook he waxes enthusiastic, and as  it is generally understood that the  parties he represents .are large capitalists     seekiug     for     profitable  investment, the fact is of more than  passing interest.    Mr. Richard returned to Nelson laden  with carefully selected ore specimens which  he is having assayed.   He leaves on  Sunday for   Arizona   en route to  England.        ______  Strike on the Buckhorn.  FRIDAY'S   QUOTATIONS.  stock. ' Asked.  Athabasca ...SJ   5 00  B. O.

London, November 80.���The war  office announced this evening that  lord Roberts, handed over the.command of the British ti*66ps'in"Souths  Africa yesterday to lord Kitchener,  ft is further announced that the  queen approves lord Kitchener's  promotion to lieutenant-general  with the rank of general White, in  command in South Africa.  London, December 1.���There is  virtually no fresh news from South  Africa, but the retirement of lord  Wolsley, the return of lord Roberts  and the appointment of * lord Kitchener to tlie 'supreme command,  occurring as  tliejr-do so simultaneously,     are     discussed. ���   Despite  some misgivings, hearty approval  is given lord  Kitchener's appointment.    It is  felt that if anyone  can clear up matters ,in South Africa, he is the man; and it  is readily admitted that the task  before  him, though of a different kind, is  almost as  difficult as that which  faced lord Roberts ten months ago,  and is calculated to give the fullest  scope to all of Kitchener's talents  as an organizer.     ��� jj'" ,  The.Morning Post -{hints - broadly  that-the recent demand of-lord  Roberts for reinforcements has not  "been complied with: and insists that  lord Kitchener's hands' must: not be'  tied by any lack of njen .or horses.

Five  of his plays were being acted in  Londou theatres at one time aud  his   poems   and books   were read  everywhere.   Then came startling  .'disclosures.    He was convicted of a  nameless crime and all" those who  had known him tried to blot his  memory from their minds forever  vAfter his release from  prison he  became an outcast in France and in  Italy, living upon the bounty of a  few friends.    Quite recently a play  produced in London, "Mr. and Mrs.  Daventry," in which  Mrs.  Patrick  Campbell is the star, is said to have  been the work of Oscar Wilde. The  play has been pronounced to be the  most risque thing that London has  ever seen.  Dined With the Queen.  London, November ,30.���During  tho crush to see the Canadians at  Windsor station today, several persons were injured.

GENERAL NEWS NOTES FROM PROVINCE AND DOMINION  THE J/^PS CAN VOTE AT COMINC ELECTION.  Vancouver, November-30���[Special'to The (Tribune].���Chief Justice McColl this afternoon rendered a judgment'which states that thene is nothing to hinder all of the/two thousand.fraudulently naturalized Japanese in Vancouver from voting- in the federal election  next Thursday. In a lengthy, judgment he allows; the appeal of Tony Haro, Japanese,  who brought action-against the collector of vote*? t5b.c0m pel :him-to .register, his-name. This  was a test case for the whole number mentioned. The chief justice holds that it is ultra  vires of the provincial government to legislate against any particular class, and that an  enactment practically overriding the allowance of the federal, government cannot be upheld.    The decision has caused much comment here..  It is. reported that a rich strike  was made on the Buckhorn prop-  perty at Ymir this week in the  shape of a fine vein of high grade  shipping.ore which will run over  $100 to the ton. During the week  a pack train went out to the mine  -with provisions to last the crew for  several months.  Breaking All Records.  No single interest has profited  so handsomely by the increasing activity in the mining industry as the (J. P. R. has. Over  in the Boundary country two complete trains are constantly employed iu hauling ore, one of these  being required to transport the 600  tons shipped daily from the Knob  Hill and Old . Ironsides property at  Phoenix. Before the first of the  year the shipments will be largely  increased by the movement of ore  from mines in the Nelson district,  aud the last quarter of the present  year will break all records in the  history of the C. P. R. in British  Columbia.      _______  Many   Certificates   of Improvements.  Yesterday was a great day for  certificates of improvements at the  mining recorder's office. The Hastings (B. C.) Exploration Syndicate,  Limited, received certificates on the  Original Fraction, Luella Fraction  and Fee Donald, while the Referendum Free Gold Mining & Milling  Company secured certificates on the  Referendum, Katie .and Golden  Cross claims.  The other mining records were :  Transfers���the Silver Bar claim ou  Falls creek by Alex McDonald to  E. J. Curran.  THE RAILROAD IS FIGHTING  Against Timber Dues.  J. R. Martin, deputy inspector of  provincial timber lands, has returned from his trip to Kaslo, in the  course of which he seized the Kaslo  & Slocan railroad and'-tied---up  traffic for the day. The seizure  was made to recover about .$75  claimed by the province as royalties  due on timber cut for fuel  on  the  'KaslbySt"Slocan locomotives. Tlie  claim was disputed by the railroad  people. The latter maintained that  their subsidy was worded in such a  way that the timber on their land  was couveyed to thera hi fee simple,  but the department rests its case  on'' section .18 of the Land Act,  setting forth that all conveyances  of laud are subject to the regulation  royalties which are there enumerated. The matter has been in  dispute since the road commenced  operations and all royalties have  been paid by the company under  protest. Finally they declined to  make further payments and inspector Martin tied tip the system. At  11 o'clock at night on the day of  the seizure a check was handed to  him covering the "royalties and the  engines were released. Notice was  served, however, that the claim  was disputed, and litigation will  probably follow.  While in Kaslo Mr. Martin also  attached the steamer Marion. The  ill-fated little craft was struggling  under the weight of a sheriff's  seizure at the time, and further  actions are still pending against  her owners, the Lodestar Mining  Company. The land department's  claim is for $90 royalties on timber  consumed in the .steamer's boilers.  Woman Took Poison.

OSCAR WILDE IS NO MORE  Dies in Poverty.  Dublin, November .'JO.���A dispatch to tlie Evening Mail from  Paris says that Oscar Wilde is  dead. The dispatch adds that he  expired in an obscure house in the  Latin quarter from meningitis and  was received into the Catholic  church on his death bead. Oscar  Wilde, who was about 45 years of  age, was born in Dublin and was  the son of Mills Wilde, ah eccentric  surgeon dentist, who has been  termed the "crazy doctor." Div  Wilde was knighted for curing a  defect in the eyesight of a member  of one of the viceroy's family.  Lady Wilde, Oscar Wilde's mother,  wrote poetry over the signature of  "Speranza." Oscar was educated  at Trinity College, Dublin, and at  Oxford.     He   obtained tho Greek  FOR SCOTIA'S PATRON SAINT  Nelson Scots Celebrate.  Good St. Andrew's night was  royally observed in Nelson. The  Scotchmen and the descendants of  parents born in the land of cakes  -saw-to it that,Scotia's patron saint  was not slighted and the result was  a repetition of many preceding  merry anniversaries. Heretofore  the celebration has been confined to  Tthe^S tTTf^n^rew'^Soeiet^^liiKerr  but last night the Caledonian Society swung into line and their dinner was eminently successful.  . The St. Andrew's Society held its  banquet as usual in the dining  room of the Hotel Phair. The  apartment Avas handsomely decorated and in several respects tho  affair eclipsed the former occasions  of a similar nature.o One of Canada's most illustrious sons, sir  Charles Tupper, graced the banquet  with his presence adding a lustre to  the event and other features assisted  to make the dinner noteworthy. J.  Roderick Robertson,' president of  the society, occupied the chair with  George Ivydd in the vice-chair. On  tho president's right sat sir Charles  Tupper and to his left G. V. Holt,  president of the board of trade.  About thera were Harry Bently,  president of Fernie board of trade  and G. O. Buchanan, president of  the Kaslo board.  The menu was admirable and  well served. A feature was the advent of the haggis borne arm high  with highland honors according to  time honored custom. Captain'  Duncan's grace was iniutitable in  every sense of the expression. The  toast list was introduced with the  health to the. queen and received  with highland honors. This was  followed by a health to president  McKinley, to which Captain Troup  responded neatly. The governor-  general's health was heartily  toasted, and followed by the toast  to the navy and army, which was  left in the hands of colonel G. C,  Tunstall, major Quinlau, W. J.  Thompson and 1. G. Proctor, R.N.R  Montreal,  November  30.���The  Star's   London 'cable |says:     The  returned Canadians wore enthusiastically received at �� Windsor this  morning and formally welcomed by  the mayor and corporation. Colonel  Otter responded.    They then proceeded to the castle, headed by the  Grenadiers' band.    The queen, accompanied by princess Beatrice and  princess Alice of Albany, arrived  at Quadrangle court sharp at noon,  and received a general salute  from  the men.   The queen sent for colonel Otter and congratulated  him,'  after which the contingent marched  past her majesty and party.  Colonel Otter then presented the  officers to the queen. Her.majesty  had private Armstrong of New  Brunswick, who lost his leg, brought  to her carriage and expressed  sympathy for him. The contingent  then advanced in review order close  to the royal carriage. The queen  expressed her appreciation of the  services of the regiment and her  sympathy for the sick and wounded.  Colonel Otter acknowledged her  majesty's kindly remarks, and three  cheers were given for the queen.  The contingent was then inspected  and lunched in the Riding school.  Davin's Talk at Moyie.  Moyie, November 30.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���Odd Fellows' hall  was crowded last night to hear  Davin speak. He spoke on the Dominion' and praised the" Liberal-  Conservatives _f or.. the good' work  they, have "done:- ��� It was an. intellectual treat and appreciated by all  who heard it. Mr. Davin leaves  here for Rossland, where he speaks  Saturday.  The St. Eugene starts work tomorrow, and it is hoped the miners  will return to work also.  owing to the hardness of the rock,  which is taken as an indication that  a large led*ge is at hand. Another  150 feet will have to be driven before the north end line of the  White Bear will have been reached..  Fell on an Old Man.  Montreal, November 30.���Joseph  Milan, a boy of sixteen,  weighing  140 pounds, lost his balance today  while cleaning a third-story  window of the Temple building and fell '  to the sidewalk, a distance of nearly 50 feet.    He landed on an .old  man named 'Felix Geofrion, knocking him senseless.. On  removal to  the hospital it was found that Geofrion,  in addition  to being badly-  bruised, had also received internal  injuries   and   may    not    recover.

Scanlan,  merchant, are talked of  -as-a-winning���aldermanic'-' ticket-in,  the West ward.   All three are*good  men and Avould make good aldermen.    One is a Liberal, another is a  Conservative, and the other is an  Independent.    One represents the  railway interest; one the young-  men   business    element,   and  the  other   what   is   locally called the'  English  element.      Mr.   Hamilton  and Mr. Selous are old-timers; Mr.  Scanlan   might   be    classed   as a  johnniecomelately.  Angered  because   nine   out of  . ton of the business men of Nelson  are backing the mayor in his efforts to obtain an efficient aud responsible chief for the fire depart-,  ment, the organ of the disgruntled  element waxes wroth and charges  Thr Tribune with being an unfair  'printing office;    that it is not a  union office.    When did the Miner  ���become the special champion of organized labor or of labor unions ?'  Doesitpay its employees union wages  of its own free will ?   Would it'pay^  the wages it is now "paying, 'v&ve  the charter of the Nelson Typographical    Union    surrendered ?     or  Avould  it go back to the wages it  Avas paying before the union was  organized?   In  an  office that employs four printers and one pressman, the saving would be .$30 a  Aveek,  and  $.30 a Aveek would  be  quite a saving for an outfit that is'  not   declaring   regular   dividends.  The Tribune gives employment to  twelve members of the union, and  Tun" Rossland Miner takes the  Kamloops Standard to task for insinuating that A. II. MaeNeill retired as the Conservative candidate  for a money consideration advanced  by candidate Galliher of the Liberal party. Party organs are  nearly always reckless in their  statements, and no stntemt-nt ever  made by a party organ was further  from the truth than tho statement  made by the Kamloops Standard.  13ut ifc is not so long since the Rossland Miner Avas making scurrilous  and untrue statements editorially  about a man who is not a candidate  for office, but avIio supported the  candidacy of Mr. MaeNeill. Tub  Tribune is pleased to chronicle the  fact that the Rossland Miner has  become good.  The Kamloops Sentinel errs when  it says that the Hon. Richard McBride, minister of mines, is on a  stumping tour through Kootenay  in the interest of the Conservative  candidate for member of parliament. Mr. McBride has been' in  Nelson, Ymir, Kaslo, Sandon and  Rossland since coming to Kootenay,  He made no political speeches in  Nelson or Kaslo or Sandon. If he  made one at Ymir it has not been  reported. He had not time to make  a speech of any kind at Rossland,  for all his time while there Avas  taken up in listening to speeches  extolling the wonderful extent of  the mineralized zones that underlie the City of Rossland.  No censure caii'be too severe, no  condemnation  too strong,'for*the  political party responsible for the  passage of the law that extended  the franchise to the thousands of  ignorant Japanese'who wero fraudulently   registered   at   Vancouver  this spring.   It means that the will  of the majority of   the men  avIio  are subjects of-Great Britain in all  that the term implies can be overridden at any time by a horde of-  men avIio are aliens in every sense  of the term.     If the Liberal party  is   responsible   for  the legislation  that x"��ermits this great wrong to  be   perpetrated, then the Liberal  party must be chastised for its sins.  There is only one way-to"chastise  political   parties,   that   is,   defeat  their candidates on election day.  Every voter in Yale-Cariboo, before  marking   his   ballot on Thursday  next, should carefully and without  prejudice sift the evidence obtainable as to which political party is  responsible for this great outrage,  aud then   vote   to   condemn   the  party   guilty.     No   voter   should  alloAV personal feeling or personal  friendship   to   sway   him   in   tho  least.     Electors of   Yale-Cariboo,  vote   to    maintain   inviolate   the  freedom   that is the  heritage   of  Britons.       NAME   THE   TWENTY-SIX  the city Who denounces and utterly  condemns the mayor for suspending W. J. Thompson from the'po*;-  sition of chief- of the fire depart-  ment? Will the Miner give a list  ot* the 'ratepayers of Nelson"who  are in favor of turning the lire hall  into a boarding-house, so that five  or six men may keep down their  living expenses-- Will the Miner  give the names of the mon "who  board in the Ore hall, their occupation, and the amounts each have  drnAvn from the city treasury*this  year for attending ''practice" runs  of' the firo department? Probably  the more the Miner probes the fire  department sore, tlie better the  ratepayers will like it. 0  Mmet PadereAvski is in the future  to act as her husband's secretary  and business agent.

A like privilege is accorded  the Labor party and tho Liberals.'  An impartial view of the situation politic in Yale-Cariboo will  bring the unbiassed elector to the  conclusion that W. A. Galliher is  hirdly the man we should send to  Ottawa, There is a certain want  of fitness about him for tlie position. He lacks the necessary weight  that should go with a man representing a great constituency and  which, on account of its extreme  youth, is considerably more than  less ignored by the powers  that be at Ottawa; nor is his  "fersuasive eloquence of the kind  calculated to sway the minds of  those Ave most desire to get at, and  Anally it is to be feared that his  large hearted nature Avould be unable to Avithstand the temptations  incidental to aud inseparable from  political intrigue.  Nor is Christopher Foley's position any better. Honest toil is' all  right and is a factor in the political  world today, but Ave live in an age  when to obtain privileges in the  councils of the land one must know  not so much one's particular business as men. The successful man  of this era is he who can read men  like a book and who can mingle inc  the lobbies at OttaAA'a amid all  sorts and conditions and take in at  t.1 glance the situation and turn it  Avith.equal quickness into profitable  channels.> Men must be influenced  and none can succeed at this unless  they can see tho reason why a man  opposes ,a certain proposition.  Hence it is vital to send a man  hither who knoAVS what it is to  canvass his fellow men. What can  Ave hope from ChristophorFoley in  this "line? He Avould be quietly  snubbed and with a pat on the  back sent home witli' a request to  study John Stuart Mill and more  particularly the fable of the frog  .and the bull.  A man's personality is a vital  factor and should not be lost sight  of. John McKane is Avell endowed  in this direction, as evidenced by  the success that lias attended his  efforts to induce his hard calculating countrymen to commi t their  bawbees to his charge iii ventures  which,at best "would be considered  in older centers as smacking of  speculation.. If he has been successful here, Ave have reason 'to'an-'r  ticipato that lie will be as successful when it comes to our requirements at Ottawa, for he is the last  man to submit to any ultra polite  ���invitations' to -withdraw when interviewing some department, even  =iTTin2iTIi'steTP^  doorknob, and lips bubbling with  promises light as air and as effective as the Miner's paternal advice to  tho citizens of Nelson.  WRITTEN BY  LIBERALS.  Tun Trjuunh has placed a part of one coin inn  nt the disposal of the Liberals, whose views  will be expressed therein from time to timo during the campaign. A like privilege is accorded  the L.ibor party and tho Conservatives.  As election day approaches W. A.  Galliher's success is becoming more  and more assured. The northern  part of the constituency is solid,  John McKane's campaign of personal abuse of Mr. Galliher rounding off the already successful efforts  of the Liberals. Unbiased reports  now coining in from Revelstoke  show how completely the Conservative candidate Avas snowed under  at the meeting there,- aud how Avise  he was. to decline Mr. Galliher's  proposal that the two should stump  the Kootenays together. The last  30 minutes of Mr. McKane's speech  consisted of personal abuse of and  personal charges against his opponent, who Avas then generously  .allowed five minutes for his defense.  But that five minutes was ample to  disprove the slanders, and capture  the meeting which broke up with  three cheers for W. A. Galliher.  And this was a Conservative meeting.  In the meantime the -Conservatives are pursuing their accustomed  tactics when driven to the wall.  Personalities and appeals to race  and religious prejudices are their  only campaign arguments.  The Miner is reduced to indulging  in speculations as to the relative  merits of John McKane and Chris  THEiBMKBF  BRITISH   COLUMBIA  NELSON  Is now7 prepared to issue Drafts and  Letter? of Credit on Skaguay, U.

Tonight "he begins  promptly at S o'clock so that the  political meeting may begin at 9  o'clock. He will lecture to men  only Sunday at 3 p. m. and 8:45  p. in., and on Monday night his  most famous lecture on love, courtship, marriage and jealousy in  which he explains the signs of love  in the head and face, how to  tell a  flirt or a jealous person, popping  the question, aiid how to manage  the mother-in-law. The interest  awakened by this lecture has been  so great that hi many cities "it was-  delivered five tiqies.  HOW THE PLAYERS MOVED  Progress of Chess Games.  The two games? of chess in progress between J. H. Unimex of Erie  and the Nelson Checker and Chess  Club have been postponed owing to  the illness of Mr. Unimex, who is  now at the general hospital. He  underwent an operation, but is now  in a fair way to recovery. R. G.  Smith is handling the men for the  Nelson Checker and Chess Club.  Mr. Hunnex.is an able exponent of  the game of chess and was a -mem-  ber bf the London,* England, Chess  Club. During his "membership he  played games with the chess masters Blackburn and Gunsberg. Mr.  Smith is one of Cauada's.crack amateur*?', having few equals. Below  are the moves of the first game,  Erie playing white. The attack of  Mr. Hunnex is the same as was  played some fifteen or twenty years  ago by chess masters, while Mr.  Smith's defence is the same as  Lasker's style, which is a modern  defence. Admirers of the game, of  chess now have an opportunity of  placing the men on the board and  studying a very "brilliant play. The  game at present is about eyen and  cannot be woii by either side without some very-fine moves. Below is  the game as it now stands:  GAME   I.  JKkik (Wiiitk.)  1. PtoKi  2. KttoKB3  3.

G- Smyth still leads  with a percentage of .803, with the  -following���-in-order:-J.--Hardie-.819,-  H. J. Tuttle .052, J. H. Wallace  .585, and H. Clark .515. During  the month of December a handicap  game is to be played with Messrs.  Smyth, .7. Hardie and D. J. Hill on  scratch. There are. now nearly  twenty members in the club, and  the December handicap promises to  be rather, interesting, as an ordinary player has'Ja good show to  come ont on top'with the handicap  allowed him.       ?  A Petition That. May Be Considered.  The mayor of Nelsen may not be'  an angel either iii-looks or disposition, but the little boys and girls  know that he is the one city official  that never turns a deaf ear to their  requests or petitions. Victoria  street, between .Tosephine and Hen-  dryx streets, is in bad condition,  owing to the removal of rock for  macadamizing Baker street. Tho  children who liye on that part of  the street expect a visit from Santa  Clans, and; they have been told that  he cannot pay them a visit unless  the street is made passable for a  man weighted down with, centuries  of age and thousands of presents.  The petitioners are all under six,  and are named:  Irene Crawford  -.,., rJoa*i Crawford  *-j" Helen Titsworth  "    Charlie Graham ���  Frank Graham  Ouy Graham  iMauel Grahum  Bruce Mackay  And a number mora boys and girls too young  to write their name*) legibly.  The mayor says the prayer of the  petitioners will be granted, provided the public works committee  gives its consent and does not afterwards change its niind.  ���HW  IBL   BTEBS   <fe   GO..  *N*_3r.sonsr  BTASLO  *3_\.*isri3o*isr  STOVES!
