CHAPLEAU MILL ABOUT READY TO START���OTHER NEWS  grade galena is  the Slocan Chief;  the property,  had from the  high as 2500  ore containing  of ruby silver,  Percy Dickinson of Slocan City,  tlio     representative      in     British  Columbia   of. the   Warner   Miller  .Syndicate of New York, was in the  city   yestez'day   on  business.       A  shipment   of   a   carload    of   high  being made froni  -group,;,one.of-the  fOur large properties in the Sloean  operated by the syndicate.     The  shipment comprises a carload and  is made as a test to  determiae the  smelter-results from  Assays  have been  group   running   as  ounces of silver, the  a strong.percentage  and it is expected the carload now  en   route   will    give    surprisingly  large returns.    Tlie report that the  Warner     Miller     syndicate     had  thrown       up -     the       bond       on*  the"    Smuggler     group     recently  gives   a misleading impression   of  the    transaction.    The    Smuggler  was one of three claims in a group  of IS and was located on top of the  . hill at a high altitude.   Last winter the men working  on the three  claims were compelled to  use life  lines in going to aud from the cabin  to the  workings.    Because  of the  difficulties  attending  the  working  of the claims after snow fell, Mr.  Dickinson  decided   to close  down  during the present winter and  requested  a   six    mouths' extension  from the owners.   This was refused  and the bond lapsed.    The  balance  ot the group, 15 claims in   all, are  owned outright by the syndicate, -  and-promise.to develop into a- fine  property.   The group is .now-called  the Slocan Chief and a crew of men  is employed, constantly.  Surveyed the Group.  R C. Green returned yesterday  from Poole creek where he surveyed  most of the claims in the big group  controlled by the Imperial Development Syndicate. This property  promises to be among the biggest  free milling^ propositions in the  Kootenays,'an*��Tcbnsiderable interest  has been'excited by the reports  from the work now under way.  Samples from the tunnel, started  under the direction of A. H. Gracey,  the syndicate's engineer, are being  exhibited in the city as a sample of  the ore which is encountered all.  over the- property. It is ..-hard  quartz liberally specked ^with free  gold;"/.''Further work^w'ill demonstrate how. continuous the vein will  be, and if. with depth it is anything  ^ike'the-fpresent^showing^all^that-"  has been said of Lexington mountain will notido justice to the situation. The Imperial Syndicate's  bonds represent an investment of  $80,000. The stock is moving  rapidly, a $5000 block having been  taken up last week.  /        About the Fern.  It,is reported that the Fern mine  on'Hall creek may be reopened in  thfe spring. A number of the parties interested in the. property are  of opinion that the Fern is by no  means exhausted and that proper  development work would show up  permanent ore bodies more than  equal to any yet worked. These  parties contend that under the old  management the mine was simply  gutted, the $30,000 and over whieh  came from the ore milled being  utilized for the payment of dividends without any portion being  reserved for the development necessary to keep any mine on a permanent productive basis. The resumption of operations at the Fern  would be hailed with pleasure in  the Nelson camp, and as the mill oh  the property is in excellent shape,  the mine would quickly become a  producer again if the development  was satisfactory.  Chapleau Mill to Start.  The Chapleau mill is practically  ready to commence operations and  the machinery will be started this  week. The tramway is in good  running order and ifc is now an  assured fact that the Chapleau will  be producing gold bricks before the  now year.     The mill is built* to  handle 20 tons of ore daily,.and it  is expected the actual capacity will  be almost up to this mark. The  ore is said to average $30 to $40  and mo3t of the values will be saved  on the plates. The sulphides of  silver are difficult to amalgamate  and will probably require cyaniding,  but as the percentage of silver is  Only six to ten ounces per ton the  loss in this direction is not serious.  Deal Off, Deal On.  The Imperial Development Syndicate has closed;down: work" on the  Northern Light group at the head  of Forty-nine creek and bonded  two or three months ago from S. S.  Taylor, Q.C, A. L. McCullOch and  others. The property could not be  worked economically at the present  season because of the difficulty of  keeping open the trail. The wagon  road now being opened will obviate  any similar trouble in future. The  - syndicate professed" a -willingness  to commence work again in the  spring but the owners have another  aud better offer for the group and.  a new deal will be consummated  during the winter.  That "Republic Deal.  The bond on the Republic property, the. existence of which was  denied by Arthur Powis on Saturday, was recorded at tho Nelson  record office yesterday. It is iu  the-nature of a thirty-day option,  and the consideration to the owners  is $30,000. Charles Parker, the enr  gineer who holds au option on the  property, is presenting the Republic to the syndicate which he repre-.  sents, and there is .every likelihood  that tho bond will be taken up.'  Road Work.  Work is still progressing on the  Forty-nine creek wagon road, and  the undertaking is rapidly nearing  completion, a fact which will be  welcomed by the property owners  who wish to continue work during  the winter. The road from Slocan  city to Lemon creek is also well  under way. For the present season  the thoroughfare will be a sleigh  road only, the proposition being to  finish it as a wagon road next,  spring or fall.   .  Ore.Receipts at Trail Smelter.

THE WORK OF THE GOUNCIL  MAT   INCREASE   THE   MEMBERSHIP   TO. EIGHT.  Lively Tilt Over the Request of Members of the Fire Department for  a "Weekly Practice Run.  Recovers $7000. V  Vancouver, November 20���[Special to The Tribune].���Justice Irving  has decided the case of Nightingale  vs. the Union Colliery Company,  growing out of the Trent river  bridge disaster. His judgment follows the jurv findings and awards  $7000 to the widow of Richard  Nightingale, an employee of the  coal company, killed in the disaster.  The defence was that Nightingale  was not a passenger and had ridden  ron the train in defiance' of their  posted notice and instructions.  DEATH OF AN OLD PIONEER  WELL KNOWN THROUGHOUT THE  PROVINCE.  Terrance H.-. Griffin, Who at One Time  Was a Resident of Nelson, Is Dead  at the Age of 69 Years.  Brockvim.13, Ontario, November 21.���Terrance  H. Giflin, a wealthy resident of this district, died  yesterdny at his home, aged 69 years. He was  born at Merrlckville, and spent the greater part  of his life in mining operations in California and  British Columbia. He was unmarried. Ills  death was caused by an attack of pneumonia.  The above appeared in the Montreal Herald of November 21st.  Terrance H. Giffin lived in Nelson  for several years, and was well-  known throughout the province.  He crossed the plains to California in the early fifties, and  mined on the American and Feather  rivers. He was among the first to  come .to British Columbia on the  breaking out of the Fraser river  excitement, and at first had the  -bar==privileges==on==one==of==the=  steamers running on that river.  Afterwards he was in Cariboo and.  Cassiar ; in fact, he was a pioneer  in nearly all of the placer excitements in the province. In 1888, he  was stationed at Donald as a  provincial constable. In 1889, he  was transferred to Nelson and  made mining recorder. He was*  afterwards appointed clerk of the  courts, and held that position until  ill health compelled him to resign,  which he did in 1897. In that year  he took up his residence at ,Mait-.  land,. Grenville county, Ontario,  where he has since resided.  No man was a truer friend than  Terrance H. Giffin, and no man  rendered the province of British  Columbia truer service than he did  when in office.  At one time Mi*. Giffin owned  considerable property in Nelson,  but it had all been* turned into  money before his death, ex-sheriff  W. P. Robinson acting as his agent.  - Will Build the Road.  Vancouver, November 20. ���  [Special to The Tribune.]���Clifford  Sifton left today for the east. In  an interview he stated that the  government would positively build  the Coast and Kdotenay railway  and that at no distant date.  The abolition of the ward system  in  electing   members   to the city  council and the increasing of the  membership from* six aldermen as  at present to eight, was the most  interesting featnre of last night's  council   meeting." Alderman   Hall  gave notice that at the next council  meeting he would; introduce a resolution providing for the increase in  the number of aldermen  as stated  above.    His argument in favor of  the innovation wa? two-fold; first  that the city had grown  since the  board was constituted to such .an  extent that the   committee work  took up more time than any" busi-*  ness man could, afford  to devote  gratuitously -and that two addition-'  al aldermen would  materially relieve this pressure of business. The'  second poiut involved was that in  outside points where,, the size and  importance of a" .city" like Nelson  was often gauged by.the number of  aldermen, a board "of six members  conveyed a misleading impression  of the importance of this city.     ;. ;  Mayor Houstonl suggested that,  the abolition of tlite ward system .'in'  electing aldermen,iyvould be even a  more important step-in the direction  of improvement in   municipl government.   The idea was discussed  at some length, most of the alder-,  men being unaware that the statutes permitted such a.change.    All  the members favored  the suggestion and it was incorporated in the  notice of motion^ which was then  passed.    The question comes up on  ;Monday,. night ^lexfeand will jjrob-'  ably be adopted.'7     ���"**-"-���"-  Three members of the fire department, George W. Steele, Fred Bradley, and* Barney Archibald, appeared  before the council with a petition  requesting the board'to1 approve of  the practice run, for which the  members of" the brigade would  be remunerated at the rate of $2.50  each. .The mayor remarked -that  these weekly practices had been  commenced when alarms were few  in number and had been continued  weekly until a few weeks ago when  the council had decided on a policy  of retrenchment until the close  of the year in order that the council might not'exceed the revenue  for the year. The heads of all departments, including the fire department, had been notified to this  effect, hence the suspension of practices. A scrutiny of the payrolls  for the year would show that the  ���firemen had received more���money.  mount and put in another few  weeks in the field. The counter  orders were due to a scarcity of recruits for the Transvaal constabulary, which is being organized  more slowly than was expected.  Colonel Steele said that he did not  know how long they would remain,  probably six weeks. Contrary to  what might be expected very few  of the Strathconas are willing to  enter the Transvaal constabulary  or stay in South Africa.  Canadian Casualties.

Result of a Recount.  ��� Montreal, November 26.���The  .recount before the judge in St. An-  toine division was concluded today,  .Avith the result that tho majority  of Dr. Roddick, Conservative, was  increased from 57 to 87. One poll  which gave McKay, Liberal, a  majority of 21, was thrown out because the deputy returning officer  had numbered ballots instead of  'counterfeits, making identification  .of voters possible.

PROPERTY.  MINING  -Trial. Shipments From the Great Britain  Group Owned by Nelson and Rossland Parties Now at Smelter.  Traffic Suspended.  Louisville, Kentucky,. November 20.���No trains have reached  Paducah, Kentucky, since Saturday  morning owing to the washout and  flooded railway lines. Today the  waters began to recede and by tomorrow traffic will probably be resumed.  this year than during any previous  year. The deputation requested  permission to address the council  in support of the petition, and  alderman Arthur moved that the  requested be granted. This was  declared out of order, but was supported on an appeal from the ruling  Of the mayor, and addresses were  made by George W. .Steele and F.  J. Bradley. The former stated that  if the terms of the- petition were  not complied with, tho brigade  would quit next day. Mr. Bradley  used language that was deemed unparliamentary and was asked to sit  down. . Aldermen-j'Hall and Arthur  then moved that the matter be referred to a special committee, consisting of the mover, seconder and  alderman Irvine. .This was carried,  the mayor reserving his porogative  of vetoing the motion, and stated  that the fire department would  probably find that their bulldozing  tactics would not work.  The bylaw to regulate the payment of water rates was reconsidered and other matters of business attended to. The member.-! in  attendance were mayor Houston,  aldermen Hall, Irvine, Morrison and  Arthur.   Will Remain a While Longer.  Ottawa. November 20.���Comptroller Fred White of the Northwest Mouuted Police has received a  letter from colonel Steele, dated  Pretoria, October 17th.

Birks of'Lardo, manager of  the syndicate which has the Great  Britain group under bond in the  Lardo district, has been in the eity  for several days closing up several  matters of business before returning to the property to superintend  the extensive program of development mapped out for the winter  months. -The Great Britain is a  promising property and the course  of events in connection with it will  be watched with considerable interest because of the fact that Nelson parties are extensively: interested.   '���'���"��� '     ��������� -���    - ������'- .- -'' :.  The-Great Britain comprises four  claims, the" Great Britain, Dominion, Ontario, Canadian Boy and  Mammoth. It is situated 13 miles  northwest of the head of Kootenay  lake on the headwaters of Meadow  and Cooper creeks, and is reached  by following the C. P. R, grade for  four miles from Lardo, and then'  taking the trail built to the group.  The claims were staked iu 1897 by  Dan McLean of Rossland and Sidney Stride of Nelson, who afterwards sold to Robert McLean of  Kaslo and John Loyd of Rossland.  In July last the property. was  bonded by D. D. Birks and S. A.  Hartman of Rossland. The latter  has since disposed of his interest to  John A. Turner and S, P. Shaw of  Nelson. The syndicate has spent  $3500 in development .since; taking  over the group, besides establishing  a comfortable ' and���'-'.'���. co)^t*npdious  camp.

Of this  1.3 sacks are now being treated at  the Hall Mines smelter as a test, the  ore being typical of the ledge.

Another violent storm prevailed today on lake Erie and throughout  Northern Ohio,- the wind coming  from the north, blowing at the rate  of 00 miles an hour this morning.  The gale was accompanied by ice  and sleet. The lake was lashed to  a wild fury and no > vessels are  leaving port. The telegraph and  telephone companies have suffered  great damage from the heavy  storm of last week and were again  badly handicapped by the prostration of lines on practically all  routes.       ���*"**   "  Storm Bound Steamers.  Montreal, November 26.���A' big  snow storm raged here all day,"delaying trains and impeding street  car traffic, but the most serious effect, was the, delay, caused to the  sailing "of ocean .* steamers. " The  Lake Champlain, the last passenger  steamer of the - season, took her  passengers, 225 in number,' on board  Sunday morning, but the ship is  "still tied to ber docks unable to get  away.      The    steamship     Etalia,  of the Elder-Dempster line, is. als '_-  tied up waiting for the storm  tqJ^  abate,   as   are   two    upper    lake-Hr  steamers, the Leafield and the Ano,-1^  bound for Asiatic ports.

The work  on this ledge consists of an open  cut on the surface and a tunnel now  in 60 feet at which point a depth of  100 feet is obtained. The tunnel  is being continued steadily. On the  west ledge a tunnel has been driven  18 feet, and at a depth of 35 feet 32  inches of ore is in sight. A shipment of 23 sacks from this tunnel  is being sampled at the smelter and  it is expected the net-returns will  be $50 per ton.  On the west ledge, in addition to  =the=tunuel"referred==toran=open=cut=  has been made for 20 feet, below  this is the 18-foot tunnel, securing  a depth of 35 feet; 150 feet lower is  a 12-foot open cut, where the ledge  is i_ feet wide with eight inches of  ore.' A second ' tunnel is now  being driveh.'oO feet further down,  and it is estimated that at 100 or  125 feet a crosscut will tap the east  ledge.  The syndicate will eventually  stock the property. The C. P. R.  line now being projected through  the Lardo will pass within 6�� miles  of the Great Britain, and excellent  transportation facilities will thus  be afforded.

Gould, as trustees  under the will of the late Jay_  Gould, restraining them from paying to Anna Gould, countess De  Castellane, any part of the trust  fund for the debts of..Anna Gould  or to the support of her children  until the further direction of the  court.

A like privilege is :u!coiil<!d  tlie L.ihor party and the Conservatives.  The Conservatives are circulating  a dodger whicli repeats the campaign lie started by John McKane.  John'McKane originated the lie at  Rossland, when AV. A. Galliher was  in the northern extremity of the  constituency, he repeated it at  Kamloops when Mr, Galliher was at  the western end of the constituency  and could not get there in time,  though he denied the lie again by  telegraph, and now Mr. McKane's  local committee repeats it again in  a lying pamphlet when Mr. Galliher  is in distant parts of Yale and cannot be: communicated with. Mr.  Galliher will be back in a day or  two, and then one more Conservative lie will be nailed to the cross.  But the Conservatives hope that  some will see and believe the lie  who will not hear of the exposure.  This is <a sample of Conservative  campaign tactics all over the Dominion. ^Vhat can be said for a  cause whose only argument and  sole battle'cry is a personal slander  on thesttHidard bearer of its opponents, a lio whieh, while it might  hurt the Liberals, the hereditary  foe, can only help Mr. Foley not the  Conservatives ?  Contrast'Mr. Foley's attitude, lie  declines-to believe the accusation,  which if true would help him and ���  not Mr. McKane, until Mi'. Galliher  has had a chance to give his side of  the matter. In the meantime ho  .accepts Mr. Galliher's denial.  John McKane's own record with  regard to labor is well known in  Rossland as an avowed and an un-  comprising-opponent-of the eight-  hour law and all labor legislation.  The workers of his own town and  district showed what they thought  of him in 1S98, when they turned  him down most emphatically in  favor of James-Martin. Mr. Galliher  will be back 'this week, and the  people will reserve their judgment  until they have heard him. -On  December (Sfch they will render  their verdict .and it will not be in  favor of lies, slanders or John McKane.

Surpassing1  Display in  Fall Suitings  In' October the city council began  to take stock of their work' for 'the  year, and it was found that economy  would be necessary to make a fair  showing at the end of the year.  ���The-heads^of^all-departments-were-  duly notified- of this, and all accepted the order in the spirit in  which it was given except the"fire-  department.

While the Conservatives  are sending-dn enthusiastic-reports,  the Liberals- are receiving equally  enthusiastic   reports. ���    The. Independent Labor party wheelhorses  .are making all they Can out of the  Galliher - eight -hour - law - petition  episode, but it is doubtful whether  it will have .any great weight*on  the   result.      Galliher,   no   doubt,  signed the petition; but he afterwards did good work in supporting  those who were known to "be sound  On that issue.   Where1 he made a  mistake  was in denying   that he  signed it, without first refreshing  )_Sa memory.  This petition is- bad business for  the barrister candidate. Tt* goes to  show how careful political aspirants  should be, for here weliave- a- possible prospective member fishing  for the labor vote' and talking  eight-hour law, cooperative stores,-  etc.' to the crowd while all the  time he was opposed to this measure, as evidenced in that remarkable petition which is singularly  enough dated April 1st. There can  .be'no question but that this disclosure will cost'W. A. Galliher his  election. All of which goes* to  prove that although one may fool  some people some of the time,- one*  can't fool-all the people all the  time, and that the race is not  ���always to the:swift.

The general mystiGcation as to  the present 9tattis of Tod Sloan iu  England is somewhat solved by a  letter received from an English  newspaper man who also served his  apprenticeship in tho country. In  other words he knows the game on  both sides, and furthermore served  liis time in :a volunteer regiment in  the Spanish-American war.  This correspondent writes:  "While in decent circles here���not  absolutely the old conservative followers of racing���the general impression is that lord Durham is  mistaken and has somewhat overshot tho mark, the news that Tod  Sloan is not after all to ride for the  prince of Wales has come as no surprise. I believe there is no doubt  that Sloan has been detected betting publicly, etc., and the probabilities are that he will not get his  licensenext year. He is very sore  .about being turned down.

Trout Lake'Topic.  The   Nelson  Tribune is taking  several falls out of-the provincial  mineralogist for his alleged action  in disparaging the mines of British  Columbia.      If    these   allegations  agaiust this official are correct then  he should be shot out of his  soft  snap quicker than scat, for a man,  in the face of facts such as the increased   ore'   productions   of   the  Boundary, East Kootenay, Slocan.  ^and   Lardeau   camps, -who would  "^still feel pessimistic about British  Columbia's future as a great mineral counti'-y, is either a fool or a  knave.     However, we hope  these  rumors are unfounded, and that the  provincial mineralogist accepts the  season's   progress   as   proof-  that  tilings mining are in a more  than  satisfactory condition both as regards   development and ore   production.   It is a pretty despondent  cuss who preaches blue ruin when  one camp can keep a smelter .supplied with 000 tons a -day and the  smelter-  people    are    talking    of  doubling,   the   capacity   of   their  plant.     When one reads of a $225,-  000     deal being   closed    in     the  Lillooet  district and  preparations  are being made to put in a gigantic  plant  to  work the properties  obtained one ought not to  search for  a.dark spot to look at. From every  camp comes reports of   increased  activity in production and the best  proof that-these reports are. correct  is the fact that several  new smelters are in the course of-construction in the. south  country.    When  British-Columbia'is takingrsteps to  have* its  ore  treated- at  home we  ought not to feel blue, for if the  country did not justify it the immense sums, of money which are  'being'invested'''overy* dny, both  iii  tlie mining"and'sm'eltiug "industry,  would'uever find its way into British Columbia.     So cheer up, Mi*.  Mineralogist,  for  we  who  aro  up  against it in  tho* heart  of these  mines and have stuck to the proposition for years are not desponding  by a great deal; on the contrary we  are seeing our hopes ��� and predictions verified all-around us and'be:  lieve that ike future,* which is only  at its dawn, will'well repay us for  our faith and any little privations  we may have "endured during past  years.    Ferguson Eagle.  The Nelson Tribune is after provincial mineralogist Robertson's  scalp. And not "without some-  reason. When Mr. Robertson was  iu the Lardeau ,a few weeks ago the  Eagle drew his attentiontothe fact  that the late provincial mineralogist Carlyle had made a baseless  attack upon Great Northern hill,  f,_without_even_having_visited,it,-de--  claring it to be barren .or words to  that effect. The Eagle and dozens  of local mining men know by actual experience that his report was  false. But Mr. Robertson^ reply  was: "Oh I've been over that hill  years ago. I know all about it,  and I don't know but Mr. Carlyle  was about .right." If Mr. Robin-  sou's opinion of this camp as a  whole is no better than his opinion  of Great Northern hill, the sooner  a.man who understands his business' succeeds him the better. A  man who "knows all about it" is  dangerous to the country's best  interests.  THE BANK Of  BRITISH   COLUMBIA  NELSON  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U.

Of course Lester ReifFs trouble  about the running of lord Durham's  Gerolstein and Richard Croker's-The  Scotchman Il.has occurred since the  above letter was received. Still in  view^of tiie recent^ failure of the  English .Tockey 'Club.* to convict  Reiff���\*it seems as if the support of  the Beresfords may.have really been  a factor in the.case.

He will probably be  back in Nelson the fore part of next  week, on the way to the mines in  East Kootenay. '"  The annual banquet of the  carpenters' union at the Victoria  hotel on Wednesday night promises  to be a sucees.-*. Robert Robinson,  president of the union, will occupy  the chair, aud a number of contractors have accepted the invitation to be present.  R. P. Pettipiece, editor and proprietor of the Ferguson Eagle, one  of the best country newspapers in  the province, arrived in Nelson last  night from Rossland. He reports  ore shipments .as commencing iu  the Lardeau, and is enthusiastic  over the future of that section of ���  West Kootenay.  C. Dease was charged at the police court yesterday with cruelty  to animals, in connection with the  horse whicli fell * through the floor  at the rear of D. McArthur & Co��'s  morgue. One of the witnesses for  the defense was M. Baldwin who  swore that he had purchased the  horse.. Thereupon an information  was laid against Baldwin and a fine  of $25 imposed. -  Jim Wilks returned last night  from a spellbinding trip through  the Boundary. He . spoke .at  Phoenix, Midway and Greenwood.  At the-latter point the opera house  was crowded and an innovation  was introduced in the shape of a  quartette which warbled Foley  campaign songs. The Labor party  will hold a -' meeting at the opera  house here on Tuesday night next  at which candidate Foley and the  Greenwood quartette are among  the leading features.  PHRENOLOGY IS EXPLAINED  By Professor Alexander.  A large audience greeted professor Alexander, the eminent  phrenologist, at the opera house  last night when he opened his  series of lectures in Nelson. The  initial lecture was genuinely entertaining and instructive, so much so  that the success of tho balance of  the series is practically assured.  Professor Alexander impresses one  as~b~eiug far removed-from the or-  dinary itinerant phrenologist.   He  is a man of refinement and education, with the happy knack of presenting the claims of the science he  champions in an   interesting   and  logical   manner.      The subject   of  phrenology has been discussed at  great length, from time to time, and  the   unscientific   follower   of    the  various   lines    of- argument    has  doubtless been at a "loss to determine whether the proper classification of the phrenologist was that  of charlatan or scientist.   Any citizen who   has eutertained such  a  doubt will be well repaid by attending professor Alexander's lectures.  His   arguments   are    logical    and  carry conviction to the minds of  the most   skeptical.      Above and  beyond the serious aspect of the  ^rjj^i-tict the   professor's   talks are  "luo|t entertaining.   He has a strong  Y^in of wit which never  fails to  excite the risibilities of his audiences. ���:. As an entertainment solely  tho lectures merit patronage and,  Nelsonites will doubtless appreciate  the opportunity.   At the close   of  the   lecture   last, night   professor  Alexander raised some fun with a  public examination of the heads of  J. H. Wallace, Rev. .77 H. White,  Leonard Scott and R. G. Joy.   Of  the former he said his chief success  would be in a commercial line. The  clergyman he said would have made  a   good   physician.      He   was not  above   medium   in  eloquence   but  could not be   convinced within a  short-time limit.    Messrs. Scott and  Joy   were   tho  opposites   of eaclv  other in many of their chief char-'  acteristics and considerable merriment vims c^qsed by the professor'*-*  handling of their respective tendencies.^ ������������:'     -.-������������-- ������'.:..-:  -.  ;;t-:.*:."/;   .f  Lively Runaway.  ���About 4:4!) o'clock yesterday  afternoon a lively runaway occurred  on Baker street. A heavy team of  horses, owned by the Nelson Transfer Company and attached to a  wagon Used for delivering wood,  took fright on Ward street. They  started on. a mad g.allop toward  Baker street. ��� At the corner Sandy  Allen tried to stop the runaway,  but a dozen.-men could not have  held them .at that stage of the  game. The, team ran east on Baker  street with two wheels scraping on  the curbstone and raising a cloud of  sparks.
