The business consisted  of" the discussion of a petition  signed by a number of representative business - men .urging tlie  council to substitute a paid brigade  of trained firemen for the organization a9 it 9tands at present. This  proposition the aldermen declined  to consider on its merits and voted  to place tlie petition on file. The  business men couched their request  in the following terms :  "Your petitioners, being -either  engaged in business or the owners  of improved rear estate in tho business portion of the city, respectfully ask that your reorganize the  fire department and. place; it in  change of men -who will ���'. devote  thefr entire time to -the duties for  which they are paid.  "Nelson is how of a size and importance to justify the change  from a volunteer to a paid department. The change will necessitate  the employment of men trained in  that particular- business and as a  result the city should get better  .service for the expenditures that  are annually made.  " The purchase from time to time  of firo equipment means a large expenditure of money,] this expenditure can orilybe^made to the best  advantage on ,the advice of men  trained to prevent and fight fire.  " It is an. admitted fact that the  rate of insurance in the business  portion of .the city is high and this  high rate will be maintained until  the fire department is brought up  to- the standard of efficiency prescribed . by experienced tinder-  writers. Therefore we deem it our  right to urge upon you the necessity  of making the change suggested at  the earliest practicable date."  (SlRticd) KURD IRVINE & CO.  KIIUCl'ATUICIC & wir.so.v  W. C.

GILLETl'  Iii laying the matter before the  council the mayor urged the aldermen to give the matter the consideration warranted by the standing of tho 'business men who presented the petition. The petitioners  fairly represented the business interests of Nelson, who contributed  three-quarters of the city revenues,  and any -.request emanating from  such a source should have the full-  : est consideration. As to the matter of instituting a paid brigade of  trained men, it was a fact that the  change would only necessitate an  increased monthly expenditure of  $100. The figures in support of  this statement were, basing the cost  of the suggested paid department  on the salaries paid in Rossland, as  follows:  brigade   of skilled  firemen  would  naturally bring about a reduction  in the cost of insurance on buildings  in  the business   section,   and  this  reduction had been estimated by a  practical insurance man at 15 per  cent.    The sum thus saved to citizens would more than compensate  for the extra outlay J incurred even  if a portion of it was re-expended  to   increase   the efficiency of  the  brigade.    The experiment of a paid  department had been tried in Rossland  when  the  council  there was  compelled to choose between turning ;the city's affairs  oyer to the  volunteer brigade or  retaining the  direction of matters in  their  own  hands.    They  took the  latter   alternative, established a brigade of  trained men and the result had been  most satisfactory. Everyone agreed  that Nelson's firemen had done well,  but there could be no reasonable argument to prove that a paid brigade  would not do better work thannien  not specially and constantly trained  to their duties, and he certainly believed the council  should  carefully  inquire    into   the   petition  which  made no insinuations against anyone and expressed the opinions of a  strong business element.  The aldermen, however, declined  to go into the matter at any leugth  and the petition was filed. This  concluded the business for the  meeting whicli adjourned. The  members present were mayor  Houston, aldermen Arthur, Hall,  Morrison, Irvine and McKillop.  An Alderaanic Investigation.  An entirely new phase of the  fireball trouble was developed . at  "the regular session of the* council  last night in the shape of written  charges against W. J. Thompson as  a city official preferred by mayor  Houston. When the regular hour  of opening arrived only the mayor  and aldermen Hall and Arthur  were present. Just before the half  hour's grace provided for by by-law  elapsed aldermen Irvine and Morrison arrived, making a quorum. The  minutes of the previous meeting  were approved with the exception  of the resolution providing for a  special committee to look into the  firemen's petition, in which the  mayor reserved his right of veto  under the Act.       '  Mayor Houston then laid the following communication before the  council:  To the City Council���Gentlemen :  On Tuesday, November 27, I suspended W. J. Thompson, chief of  the fire department, water com-  nnissionerrfireinspectorrfirewardeff  and sanitary ihspector, by the  power given me in sub-section D of  section 11 of the Municipal Clauses  Act. The reasons for suspending  him are: *  1. Neglect of duty.  2. Certifying to incorrect payrolls as chief of the fire department.  I have the honor to be,  John Houston, mayor.  Nelson, December .3.  His worship pointed out that in  taking the action indicated in his  communication he had acted  strictly within the limits of his prerogative as prescribed by law. The  charges made were serious and  should be investigated. Under the  circumstances it was clearly the  duty of the council to enquire into  the matter and determine whether  or not the allegations were correct.  Aldermen Arthur arid Hall moved  that alderman Irvine, together with  the mover and seconder, be a committee to investigate the charges  preferred against W. J. Thompson  and to report thereon at the next  meeting of the council. The resolution concluded by providing that  W. J. Thompson be reinstalled in  office pending further action arising  out of tho special committee's report.  The mayor approved of the first  portion of the motion, but drew attention to the fact that it was contrary to practice and distinctly opposed to-good policy to reinstate an  official under suspension when  charges had been brought against  him and an aldermanic committee  specially appointed to investigate  the case.   Iu view of this aldermen  Arthur and Hall withdrew the  latter par,t of their motion referring  to the reinstatement of chief Thompson and the resolution was carried.  This closed the discussion on the  matter.  A resolution to increase the number of the aldermen from six to  eight was lost, the mayor voting in  the negative.  The mayor made the following  recommendation to the council:  "I respectfully  suggest that at  least three crossings |be put in  on  Water street,   between Park and  Poplar streets ;   that a sidewalk be  built on the south  side of Vernon  street from the residence of D. McKay west to the residence of William McNnab and  that a crossing  bo  put in from  this  sidewalk to  that on the  north  side  of Vernon  street, and that a sidewalk be laid  on the east side of Falls street, between Baker and  Vernon  streets;  that the sidewalk on the north side  of Latimer street be extended west  from Stanley to Kootenay street."  The suggestions  were approved  and instructions issued to the city  engineer to have  the work  done.  It was also resolved to  have the  sidewalk on the  east  side  of Hall  street extended from the alley in  block 35 to Latimer street.  G. T. Ahliu notified the council  that he assisted the firemen in  fighting the flames at tlie' Rowley  fire last month, and had never  recovered a lantern which he had  loaned to a member of the brigade.  The council resolved to furnish-Mr.  Ahlin with a new lantern at once.  Bylaw 84 regulating the water  works department was reconsidered  and finally passed, after which the  council adjourned to Wednesday  night.

Other News Notes'.  FRENCHMEN ARE INDIGNANT  AT THE EMPEROR'S TREATMENT  OF   KRUGER.  They  See  the  In   It   the   Shattering  Former's Reputation  for Chivalry.  of  Paris, December 3. ��� Emperor  William's telegram to Mr. Kruger  refusing to receive him continues  to be the chief subject of comment  in the French press. The afternoon  papers strike a note of sadness.  They say they see in his majesty's  action the shattering of his reputation for chivalry. The Temps and  the Journal des Desbats explain  William's message to the Anglo-  German understanding on African  questions.  The Temps says : The emperor's  wording^thaHie^conld^not^receive"  Mr. Kruger on account of engagements already made is very clear.  Every one understands that the  emperor, if not actually fulfilling  one of the clauses of the recent  Anglo-German accord, is-- inspired  by the spirit thereof in declining to  receive Mr. Kruger. Neither have  the declarations of count von Buelow concealed from the eyes of the  world that the emperor has veered  his policy in favor of England since  he sent his famous dispatch on the  Jameson raid. The emperor has  failed to find in Europe the alliance  needed to brave England arid his  people have refused the credits to  build a fleet. The consequence was  the emperor threw in his lot with  England. This is clear but incomprehensible. Mr. Kruger's advisers  neither saw nor foresaw anything  and exposed Mr. Kruger to the  humiliating check he.has just experienced. This, perhaps, is not  the first bad advice they gave him  and which explains many things iu  the past. '-���   '������'  Punishing Chinese.  Berlin, December 3.���A dispatch  from field marshal count von Wal-  dersee, commander-in-chief of the  international forces in China, sent  from Pekin under date of Saturday,  December 1st, says that after hoisting the German flag at the Ming  tombs and punishing several neighboring villages for the murder of  Christians, the late colonel Yorick's  detachment, commanded by general  Gay, returned to Pekin in four columns by way of Fang, Chen Pien  Tehing, Thang Shan and Niu Lan  Vancouver, B.

According to the first notification she  should have sailed from. Gape Town  on Saturday. As she has not done  so it is thought in some quarters  that the men will remain longer,  owing to occurrences last week in  .South Africa.  Montreal News Notes.  Montreal, December 3.���The  city council today accepted the resignation of P. W. St. George, "city  surveyor, and one of the best  known municipal engineers on the  continent. For some time past he  has been hounded by certain members of the road committee and  sent in his resignation as a protest.  Recently an inquiry, was held into  his conduct, but no decision has yet  been reached by the* inquiry committee. There was little proved  against him.  George Janin was appointed superintendent of the waterworks.  Immigration to the port of Montreal this season shows a good increase. Figures are not yet made  up.

During his absence from the  room the cold water was turned off  and the hot water allowed to run.  On his returning Mr. Quinn, without investigating the temperature  of the water, jumped into the bathtub and was scalded all over his  body.   He died tonight.  A Billiard.Tournament.  New York, December 3.��� The  opening contest in the tournament  of class B, billiard championship of  America, took place tonight in the  theatre of the Knickbocker Athletic  Club.

Dis-  OTHER MATTERS IN NELSON AND SURROUNDING GAMPS  ENGLISH PRESS COMMENT  ON PRESIDENT M'KINLEYS MESSAGE  TO  CONGRESS.  Viewed Favorably by Various Journals  Who Look for a Continuance of  Cordial Relations.  Lonijox, December 3.���Comment  on president McKinley's message to  congress is devoted to the references to America's Chinese policy.  The Daily Graphic says : " The  policy of the United States regarding China is not heroic, but it is  certainly practical and there is  ample reason to believe that it will  prevail."  The Times says : " The message  makes it clear that on the vital  point of insisting upon punishment  for the outrages Mr. McKinley remains firm.   We_are_glad_to_see^  that on the subject of guarantees  for Christian converts the president makes a new proposal in advance of any put forward elsewhere. In regard to the indemnity  question he is in agreement with  with some of the best opinion in  England."  The Times' editorial concludes  witli the expression of a hope that  McKinley's second terra may be  marked by " a satisfactory settle-  merit of all outstanding questions  between Great Britain and  America."  The Daily News says tlio message  contains nothing new and nothing  very illuminating on matters that  are old. It will be very closely  scanned for its references to China.  It looks as though the American  formula were that the powers are  to specify the culprits and the  Chinese government is to specify  the punishment. On such terms a  speedy settlement would undoubtedly be possible, but would it be  effective or durable?  A Terrific Explosion.  Chicago, December 3.���Four men  and one boy- were killed and 13  persons injured by the explosion of  a boiler in the power house of the  Chicago <fe Northwestern railway  this evening. Several of the injured  were hurt so badly that they may  not live. Tho dead are Clamau,  section foreman, killed by falling  debris ; an unidentified man about  40 years old blown through the  roof of the building and fearfully  mangled, and an unidentified boy 12  years old, killed by flying bricks  and debris.  The   rush into the Kettle  river  country last spring was caused by  the reports   of   remarkably large  assays from specimens taken "from  properties on the Eureka lode.   The  values were found in tellurides and  the   returns from  the first assays,  were so large that it was  believed  the district would prove a bonanza  camp.   This did not turn out to be  the case by any means, and many  of the locations made under the excitement have not had a hole drilled  in them and will lapse next year  unless the assessment   is   paid in  cash.   Apparently the first shot or  two on tho Eureka lode were  in a  pocket which carried  high  values, *  for since that time,  so far as Thr  Tribune is aware, no big strikes  have been made.   The vein known  as the Eureka lode is a remarkable  formation.   At     the    only    point  where development has been  done  a   crosscut   wa3   driven    41   feet  through ore without encountering  the   footwall   and at many other  points it can bo seen that the width  quite   equals this  for a  long  distance.    Naturally the ore   is   low  grade, $5 being probably   a   fair"  .average      for      the      big     vein,  and     the      tellurides     are      not  amenable to free milling treatment.  Mr. Brock, the official of tho Dominion  government who spent the  summer in the country as mineralogist with the topographical survey, examined the ore carefully and  expressed the opinion that it could  be easily and economically reduced  by cyaniding.   The cyanide system  can be carried "on "at'a low cost' and  it is, therefore, not at all unlikely-  that the big ledge of telluride ore  may yet be worked at a good profit'.  When the first reports of the country arrived a  number  of prospectors made haste to get in on  the  ground   floor   and   the ledge was  staked for two and a half miles.  The   original   locations   were  the  Eurek.1 and Saddle Rock by the  Stanfield brothers, John Lodge and  J. Brown.  ' To  the  southwest .are  tlie Buckeye owned  by Ike  Eastwood,   the Grubstake   by Messrs.  Minto,   .Strickland,    Clement   .and  Williamson, and the Model by Kirk-  patrick <fc Wilson and J. G. Devlin.  Northeast of the Orginal are  the  Ptarmigan owned by the Williamson   brothers, Doyle and Costley,  ��� three claims owned by Fred Williamson,   Costley   and Doyle,   the  Two Friends by Charles Strickland,  the RevenueJby-^Andrew���Wallane,-  the Exchange by Albert Stanfield,  and the Currency by .lames Minto.  On Sawyer Creek.  Favorable reports are to hand regarding the Black Prince on Sawyer  creek, which rises in the Sawyer's  Pass district and empties into  Crawford creek, ten miles above the  mouth of the latter. The property  is located a mile and a half above  the junction and comprises the  Black Prince, Almeda, Francis, Vanguard, Princess and Climax claims.  It is a copper proposition carrying  some gold and silver values. On  the Black Prince claim considerable  work has been done and the property could ship more or less ore if  the necessary transportation facilities were available. The vein on  the Prince is strong and assays as  high as 10 to 12 per cent copper, 10  to 15 ounces of silver and $0 to $18  in gold have been had. On the  Climax a six-foot vein well mineralized has been uncovered for some  distance. The group is only two  and a half miles from tho terminus  of the Crawford creek wagon road  and tho owners, Sawyer Brothers,  propose to cut out the timber and  build an extension to the road in  the spring. The Loudoun Brothers  and Caldwell of Nelson own a  promising group of five claims in  the vicinity and Ryan & Naphen  have the Whitewater property,  also on the same mineral bolt, in  such shape that ore will probably  be shipped in the spring.  A Pioneer Do���.  The Messrs. Sawyer, who have  been located  in  the Sawyer Pass  country since 1892, are .the owners  of a canine   which   is, known to ������  every prospector who has worked.-,  in the Crawford Creek, Summit and -  St. Mary's River districts.   The dog;"  is a cross between Shepherd and  hound and goes  by the ��� name .of'  Bob.     A- peculiarity   with which  Bob's friends are familiar is  that  he is tailless'.    Twelve brothers and  sisters in the same litter were sup--  plied with the regulation  append- '  ages, but   nature evidently,  over- .  looked Bob in. the count and left  him    without   anything   to   wag. -  Otherwise he is perfect and au unusually    sturdy    and     intelligent"'  canine.     In the early days Sawyer,'  brothers kept a p,ack train  of dogs  and   Bob headed .the   pack.     His  ordinary load over the pass was 40 ���'  pounds which is 10  pounds  more  than   the average man  can ' pack  over'  the     same     ground.*      The1"-"  dog   train    was   a . boon    to   the,  prospectors of the day and many a~,"  man was saved from  starvation by  ;  the   arrival   of  the    pack    dog.-��  Cayuses   have   since,   entered   the  field and put the dogs out  of.', busi?"  ness through their packing powers,"*"  aud the Sawyer dog train was long-*  since'disbanded.    Bob, the pick of %  the pack,  was   retained, however,   '  and although now 12 years old is in  excellent condition. * '.  -ii*:  *t*>  m  -''I  .4-  -All  has  ad"-y-t  Jtinoyy.**  New Contract on Juno. '.',  The Juno Mining ' Company  let a contract for  200   feet of  ditional    tunneling  on   tlie  group, and-Robert NelsoD, who had >  the first contract, is  now engaged ~  on the new work.    Nelson has been  figuring at some length on the  dip   ,  of .the ,big,ledge which, the tnnnejy*>,  is intended -to ' crosscut and- esti-'  mates that it will be reached  at  a'  distance "of 700* feet.    J f this proves,  correct.the. company will virtually  pick up several hundred dollars as  all their estimates had been based  on the theory that 800 feet of woik  would be required to tap the  east'  and west ledge.'  The work- on  the  Venus    vein   is  progressing  satisfactorily and the showing improves  consistently as the tunnel proceeds.  On his last visit to the property M.  S.  Logan,' the  managing director,  took a sample across - the vein  and*  was surprised to find   it assayeti*  $58.80.-    Of course Mr. Logan does   -  not anticipate that this quality bf   .  ore will continue, but regards i t as  an excellent evidence of the merit  of the property.  No Agreement Probable.  Pi-KiN, December 3.���All the for-  Tiigns envoysliave now~heard_from  their governments regarding the  joint note to the Chinese pleni-"  potentiaries and a meeting will be  held tomorrow. The envoys are  not communicative, but enough is  known with reference to the objections of different governments to  make it seem doubtful that the  meeting will have a satisfactoiy  conclusion.  Prince Ching and Li Hung both  say that they are anxiously await,  Jng the demands of the powers.  They declare that China. desires  peace at any price commensurate  with the dignity of independent  nations, but thoy point out that so  long as a large foreign .army occupies the province of Chili the problem will be harder to solve.  The missionaries and others who  went through the siege protest bitterly against any suggestion of  leniency. They urge particularly  that those who are high in office  and who were really responsible for  the outrages to foreigners'should  be executed, aud they insist also  that a sufficient force should be  kept in China to guarantee order  and to keep foreigners independent  of the Chinese.

Candidate McKane leftTNelson
yesterday afternoon for Kaslo feeling as if he had friends in Nelson
who would give a" good account of
themselves on Thursday.
The   petition
presented  to tlie
city council in special meeting
yesterday afternoon did not receive the consideration that was
due the petitioners. The petition
was on a question "of great importance to the business interests
of the city, and the names signed
to it represented not only large
real estate holdings, but large investments in merchandise. The
petition 'was carefully worded; it
did not contain a word of censure.
The city council saw lit, however,
to turn it down, and by doing so
virtually told the petitioners to
attend to their own affairs. I- is
within .bounds to state that the
business men of Nelson pay 75 per
cent oj 'tlie city's 'revenue, and no
council can afford to treat sucii'men
eayaHeriyi'^:_'The council will be
wise if they reconsider their action
at the' next meeting of the council,
special committee that was not laid
before the council" imtil 8 o'clock in
the evening. It also foretold that
W. J. Thompson was reinstated as
chief of the 'fire'department at a
special meeting of the council which
did not commence until ten minutes
after 4 o'clock, and at whicli the reinstatement of that "suspended official was not even considered. Some*
of the members of the council
should have a little more respect'

Sandon" Pay_ti-ak.J
The ball given" by the Miners'
Union to celebrate the formal opening, of their now hall was the most
successful social event ever held in
Sandon.     There wero over three

property interests'.' The example
of the Sandon union, which has a
membership of over 700, should be
followed by every union in the
mining towns of Kootenay and Yale.
Sensational Mining Methods.
, Camp Mansfield seems destined
to furnish some novel mining experiments. While capitalists in
other districts spend money in
seeking for valuable ore, it seems to
be the policy of some other companies in Camp Mansfield to get rid
of their ore. If newspaper reports
are tine Camp Mansfield has mine
operators who, after finding ore at
a considerable outlay, 0 go to a
further expense in distributing it
along water courses, in lakes, and
in other out-of-the-way places. Just
what view the shareholders will
take of such distribution of their
assets icmains to be seen, but they
will shortly be informed of it. That
this unique method of treatment
is being followed in Camp Mansfield is vouched for by Mr. Roie
who has just returned to Nelson
from thareainp.and who while there
succeeded in fishing some of the ore
from the lakes in that vicinity. A
sack of this ore is to be forwarded
to the head offices of the company
in France and England. It assays
very high in gold and silver, which
will doubtless make it very difficult
for the foreign shareholders to understand why it. should be mined
and sacked and carefully deposited
in the lake.in question.
Concerning operations in  Camp
Mansfield the Kaslo Kooteuaian of
November   29 th   says
hundred guests present and tlie
large hall was crowded, with merry
dancers throughout .the entire
evening. Besides'everyone of tlie
Sandon .dancers there were present
many guests from New Denver,
Silverton and Slocan City. Supper
was served in the Fraternity hall,
upstairs in the Union block, but so
great was the crush that many had
to be accommodated at the nearby
cafes. About 275 guests, sat down
to supper. The miners' ball will
be one long remembered by the
many guests who spent such a jolly
evening on the occasion of the
' The miners' union at Sandon is a
public spirited" organization. Its
members had already settled a long
existing difference with the mining
companies before they began erecting a building that would, be a
credit to a town'much"larger than
Sandon is.     The  building  has  on

after the Joker closed down the ore
that was taken out in development
work and shipped down to South
Fork had mysteriously disappeared,
also a large quantity that was at
the mine had vanished. t Messrs.
Boie and McCaiue, acting tinder Instructions from Mr. Mansfield, fished
out a sack of ore, presumably
Joker, from ...the .lake near .Camp
Mansfield, and brought it down to
Kaslo. The Kootehaian representative secured a couple of samples
from the sack, and to satisfy himself that it was, valuable, had an
assay made which showed: No. 1
sample, gold J55S.-IO, silver 20.2
ounces; No. 2 sample, gold .$.32.40,
silver 15.10 ounces. This shows
the ore to be very high grade. Mr.
Mansfield intends taking this sack
to show the London .directors of the
company what is being done and
what they may expect from their
property in the future, also to find
out the,< reason for work being
stopped, which Ave hope will not be
for long."

THE BANK OF  BRITISH   COEUlffBiA  NELSON  |Thk Tribune has placed a.part.of one column  at the disposal of the Conservatives, whose views  will be expressed Ihoroiii from time to timo during the campaign. A like privilege Is necorded  the Labor.party and the Liberals.)  Sir Charles Tupper's reference to  tlie   power   of    au   opposition   at  Ottawa was well illustrated in the  Mending   of the ��� Canadian- _outin-  gents lo the Transvaal.    Beyond a  doubt  if  it  had  not been   for his  activity in the-matter Sir   Wilfrid  Jvuiriei* would have taken no action  and the only tangible < contribution  of   Canada to the empire on this  occasion   would    have   been   the  munificence of lord Strathcona iu  outfitting and forwarding at   his  own expense the Strathcona Horse.  This should set aside all  this  wiseacre exuberance-that-if we want  anything at Ottawa we must send  there a government supporter.   As  far as Nelson goes Ave sent W. A.  Galliher there last year and he  got  nothing   and   there   is    not   the  slightest reason to suppose that he  will,, do   a particle better as  our  member.    John McKane, being in  opposition, will not be subservient  to the government and can agitate  our requirements and see that we  get them, for his personal interests  are inseparably bound up with the  mining   industry; whereas lawyer  Bill's are not quite so contingent  upon any legislation affecting  the  primary industry of this seetiou.  The spectacle of 2000 Japs being  rounded "up to vote * presumably for  Mr. Maxwell is a fitting-, climax to  tlie election scenes in Burrard., If  this decision is sustained in the  higher courts there will be openings  for that objectionable individual,  which we have so far succeeded in  keeping from our doors, tne-Ameri-  can'political boss. There should be  nothing then to' prevent rascality  well supported at Ottawa from arranging to have a few thousand of  these "free and Independent clec  tors" on tap and to order. It is  nice to know that our Liberal  friends - will be* fortunately- prevented by circumstances from tainting their political careers by the  use of this new electoral power' on  /.Thursday, and of course lawyer  Bill, as labor's dearest friend,  would be the-first to condemn any  assistance from such a quarter.  Rising to remark that sir Wilfrid Laurier's majority is made up  entirely of French constituencies  does not necessarily imply any  envy, hatred, malice or unchari-  tableness towai'ds the French populace. No one Hires to think that  the scenes now taking place in  Fill rope over Paul Kruger's arrival  have the endorsation of Quebec. It  is only fair to say that the descend -  ants of ancient Gaul aro as-frothy-  as a dime schooner of Roisterer's  very mild ale and as inflammable  as John Houston over city electric  lighting matters, and these characteristics are kept alive by political  demagogues. The fact that the  house of commons next January  will be alive with tho French element-makes it all the more important that we should send as our  contribution that level headed, far  seeing and energetic Scotchman���  John McKane.  .' One cold arid flinty hard fact was  made prominent at the meeting on  Saturday. The Liberals during  their 18 years of opposition were  never weary of shouting "Free  Trade" and making countless  promises on that score. Yet here  we are today, after four years of  Liberal regime, with as bulky a  customs tariff as when the National  Policy was promulgated. It's more  than a farce! It's as nauseating as  the Yukon scandals and will stand  as a monument of colossal deceit  ������ against the present government,  long after the Liberal party has, in  the nature of things, been swept  ont of power and a truly ^representative and honest administration is in charge at Ottawa.  A Relic of the Blue Laws.  A,t.the -public- whipping post in  Newcastle, Delaware, one>->day last  week a little boy was whipped at  11 a. m. He received ten lashes. A  large crowd witnessed the exhibition. The boy, fourteen-year-old  John Tucker, only four feet tall,  had to stand on a box to reach the  -manacles which held his wrists fast  to the whipping post. At the first  swishing smack of the lash the boy I  i-       '-���'       -    *i'..~     . .  .*   :..:���   ,*.  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay,- U.

But the hand-of,  -heriff John E.-Taylor was -steady  and his aim sure, and not a single  stroke missed its full effect. ���._.....,.  The only comforting rthonght  to the child experiencing the  mediaeval rigors of Delaware justice was that whieh comes from  companionship iu misfortune.  There were others who tasted the  lash, and of these there were two  who, like'him, hailed from Philadelphia.  There were two offences charged  for which the whip was applied to  young Aucker. One was that he  stole a ride in a freight car of the  Philadelphia, Wilmington & Baltimore Railroad company; the other  that he attempted to carry off some  bottles of .perfume^from the-car,  Smarting from the lashes, the little  boy was released from the post and  locked up in a cell in.the jail. His  sentence includes imprisonment for  four months.  One of the others who��� were  whipped was John Smith, also of  Philadelphia. He was convicted  of stealing an overcoat. He was  the first whipped today. Ten  lashes fell to his share. The crowd  which enjoys the whipping post exhibitions manifested a sort of sullen  sympathy when the lash was applied to Smith.

Go. to steam 20 knots an hour,  waited for the Kokanee and that  the two boats had a race for blood  from Woodbury creek to Kaslo, a  distance of approximately ten  miles. The C. P.

Died in Nome  Thomas Madden was notified yesterday of the death of his  brother  Hugh -at   Nome.    Full  particulars  have not been received as yet, but  it is understood that deathwits the  outcome   of   an   attack   of   pneumonia.    The sad intelligence will be  received with keen regret by the  old residents of Nelson, the late Mr.  Madden having been  one  of   the  best     known   .and     most   highly  esteemed pioneers of the city.    He  came to Nelson in 1889 from Quebec   and   resided   here   for   three  years, being identified in business  with his brother Thomas.   Afterwards the deceased was in business  .at Nuku.p and Trail and  went to  the Yukon with the  rush  iu  1897,  locating at Dawson.     When   the  stampede to Nome commenced last  year Mr. Madden went into the new  country and engaged in business.  At Nome and Dawson his business  ventures "were crowned witli success. A brother, Antony, is looking after his interests in Dawson at  the present time. Deceased was 41  years of age and leaves a widow in  Quebec. '  A Deal Pending  It-is reported that A.
